New Israeli Rapid Coronavirus Test Approved

An Israeli company received European approval for its rapid coronavirus test to help kickstart international travel. The rapid test eliminates the need for complex lab equipment by shining light through samples and giving results after only 20 seconds.

When it comes to COVID-19, I’m continuing to look at Israel. They are firing on all cylinders when it comes to not only medicines and vaccines, but also technology for testing. I believe this kind of testing is really the key. This Israeli technology can be the key to reopening not only international travel, but domestic travel even more. As vaccines continue to lower COVID numbers, this instant test can really give confidence for countries to accept tourists and business travelers, and maybe even bring us one step closer to normalcy.
