Due to the nature of the coronavirus and the fact that some people don't even show symptoms when they are infected, it's most likely that there are more people who are infected with the coronavirus than what the official numbers say. For this reason, health officials are constantly looking for new ways to effectively screen people for COVID-19, as the more people that are screened the virus, the better grasp health officials have on the severity of the outbreak.

This is where the new test comes into play. A study published in ACS' Analytical Chemistry describes a new quick and sensitive test for antibodies against the coronavirus. This test is much like a pregnancy test, but instead, it tests for if the person is/has been exposed to coronavirus and if their body has developed any antibodies towards COVID-19. This new way of testing was put to the test on seven serum samples from COVID-19 patients who tested negative for the disease by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The new way of testing found that all seven samples were COVID-19 positive, and tested each sample in just 10 minutes.
