In order to detect covid-19 in 30 seconds, India Israel conducting 4 new technologies. These technologies have a lot of potential to detect covid-19 in about 30 seconds, which also includes a breath analyzer and a voice test. These 4 technologies are being developed by scientists from Israel and are being evaluated at Delhi’s Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia’s Hospital.


The rapid testing is being jointly developed in collaboration between the Israeli Defense R&D, the Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), and Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).


With the help of these rapid testing, over 10,000 people will be tested twice, once using the gold standard molecular RT-PCR test and then the four Israeli technologies to evaluate whether these innovations will work in a field setting. For this test, people will have to blow into or speak in front of a breathalyzer sort of an instrument which will collect a sample for testing.


There is also isotherm testing that enables identification of corona-virus in a saliva sample and a text using polyamino acids that seeks to isolate proteins related to covid-19. These trials are a part of a multi-pronged mission visiting India, building a strategic relationship between India and Israel.


“We will see which of the four technologies works better at detecting Covid-19 afflicted people. It could be a combination of two of these technologies as well. We hope to see a very robust diagnostic test finally,” said Israeli ambassador to India Ron Malka.
