How team created 20 minute coronavirus test ‘in spare time’ – being trialled by UK gov
Fast, reliable testing is still one of the main routes out of lockdown.
Virologist Veronica Fowler has been part of a team working on a coronavirus test in her spare time – together with Hampshire Hospitals NHS Trust.
We first spoke to them on the programme at the start of April when they were still validating the science.
