Charles University, private sector, develop new test for Covid-19 and flu


A team of researchers from Charles University’s First Faculty of Medicine  together with the private sector firms have developed a new test for flu and Covid-19 which should be available in September. The test identifies infections of the two dominant flu strains (A and B) and Covid-19 (the disease caused by the novel coronavirus).

Significantly, it should cut down the waiting period for results from two hours to around one, while a price has yet to be decided, the test will not cost more than 1,700 crowns (the equivalent of around 65 euros).
