How will we distinguish COVID-19 from flu and RSV in the winter? What’s the future of rapid testing? How do we prevent the next pandemic?
In this episode we discuss rapid PCR testing for COVID-19, influenza A and B, and RSV, as well as testing for yet-undiscovered future outbreaks like SARS-CoV3 and avian flu. We discuss rapid saliva antigen testing, why the turnaround times have been so long, what went wrong with the country’s early testing for coronavirus, and much more.
