When the virus first emerged, tests would take up to three days. Even now, testing can take up to 24 hours to get results, often because the tests must be sent to a lab.
But the new test, now being calibrated by the Israeli team after testing was completed in India, delivers results in 30 seconds, a source at the Indian Embassy in Israel told The Jerusalem Post.
“When the calibration is complete, an announcement will be made, and the tests will be mass produced,” the source told the Post. “The calibration process was intended to set technical parameters to improve efficiency,’” the source said, adding, “This is the very last stage.”
In a report last month from the Post, the paper said the test requires a person to
