Professor Gabby Sarusi of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) claims his test has greater than 90 percent accuracy. It could be carried out at a “dramatically lower price” than any method available, he pledged.
Sarusi is now confirming the validity of his COVID-19 test that identifies carriers through collected samples from a breath test or throat and nose swabs. He said clinical trials of his test were done in cooperation with Israel’s Defense Ministry on over 120 Israelis.
The trials showed a more than 90 percent success rate compared to the currently used Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests, Sarursi claimed. “Right from the beginning of the trials, we received statistically significant results in line with our simulations and PCR tests.”
The new test kit would reportedly cost between fifty to one hundred dollars to produce. That is less than the current laboratory testing.
Sarusi’s announcement comes while countries are racing for tests as they attempt to ease lockdowns. The restrictions were imposed to limit the spread of the coronavirus that killed more than 300,000 people globally, according to the World Health Organization.
