Local researchers working on rapid diagnostic test

NUS, Duke-NUS Medical School, the National Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCID), hospitals, and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR) are working on a rapid diagnostic test for Covid-19 that can potentially be used at general practitioner clinics, joining the race to produce fast, reliable tests that can be used at places which do not have specialised laboratory equipment.
