    A new, cheaper and less invasive Corona test that was developed here in Brazil. The patient collects the material him/herself, by spitting into the collector:

    Probably a good alternative for the corona flu test.

    My brother described the test as feeling like, "having soda shot up his nose" - he was really shook up and traumatised. Additionally he suffered other effects included nasal discomfort, headache, earache, and rhinorrhea, which lasted a couple of days.

    Just warning readers about what happens, quite a bit with the invasive test.

    Thanks Danik.

    That´s very invasive indeed, Tony. I hope your brother tested negative after all this.

    Here in São Paulo people queue up at the drive-through when free PCR tests are offered. Tests here are still much to few and the results sometimes take a lot of time. They are not at all automatic as they seem to be in the USA. That´s why the researchers developed this other test. Unfortunately these test are subjected to a lot of issues until they can be put to use.

    ... not automatic, still unsatisfactory delays for most if you can get a test. The current state of affairs re: Covid-19 in the USA would easily remind one of circus clowns capering about under the Big Top.
