With coronavirus COVID-19 spreading like wildfire, and multiple hospitals across the United States is being flooded with potential patients, many people are going to turn to home testing kits. Here's one that can tell you results in just 5 minutes.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given emergency authorization to Abbot for the use of a molecular point-of-care-test called ID NOW. The home testing kit is an extremely lightweight box, weighing it at just 6.6 pounds and is about the size of a general toaster. Abbot says on their website that they are planning on delivering 50,000 of these home testing kits.

The ID NOW COVID-19 test kit can tell users if they have contracted COVID-19 within 5 minutes. The testing kit will also be able to tell users if they have tested negative for COVID-19 within 13 minutes. Home testing kits being rolled out should lessen the pressure on hospitals, and also allow people to correctly socially distance while also testing for the virus.
