New coronavirus breathalyzer test in the works at University of Miami
Nov. 20, 2020
Researchers at the University of Miami Health System are working on a new COVID-19 test that they say will be quick, easy and painless. “This is a totally non-invasive test that you just blow three times into a little breathalyzer. It’s like a kazoo and the breath is then caught into this apparatus and in 40 seconds it can be analyzed in order to tell whether or not the SARS-CoV-2 virus is in the exhaled air,” Dr. Roy Weiss, the COVID-19 chief medical officer of the University of Miami health system, said.
