Fujifilm Develops New Coronavirus Detection Kit That Gives Results in 2 Hours

Japanese multi-national photography and imaging company Fujifilm Holding Corporation announced that it developed a new test kit for the deadly coronavirus which reduces the results time to just 2 hours, according to Japan times.

According to the company’s statement, the detection kit (SARS-CoV-2 RT –Qpcr) which was manufactured by Fujifilm’s subsidiary known as Wako Pure Chemical Corp is expected to be released on 15th April 2020.

The test kit was made in such a way that it will be able to deliver results for Coronavirus quickly than the current polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, which currently takes a period of 4 to 6 hours,’said Fujifilm.

This comes at a time COVID-19 cases hit more than one million globally as of yesterday, with total number of death 50,000 and 210,191 people reportedly recovered from the virus.

Before Fujifilm’s announcement, America president Donald Trump declared to the world that he had tested negative for COVID-19 for the 2nd time.

The deadly virus which has now reached in each and every corner of the world, mostly kills the elderly people because their immune system is weaker. Here at Newslex Point, we always pray for all those infected and we urge all people to always wear masks and wash hands regularly.
