How The New Peradeniya University COVID Test Works

A team of scientists at the University of Peradeniya has developed a brand new #COVID19 test kit. They say the COVI-2 Loop test is at a similar range of accuracy as PCR testing, but significantly less costly and time consuming.

Senior Lecturer at the university and leader of the team behind the test kit, Dr. Ruchika Fernando, explains the science behind the kit, and how it could make regular COVID-19 testing more widely accessible for Sri Lankans in the coming years.
