This new test can detect ALL possible viruses in people and animals

Researchers have developed ViroCap, a test that can detect any possible virus that can infect people or animals. The test was found to be just as sensitive as a Polymerase Chain Reaction test (used to analyze short DNA and RNA sequences), and it can test for every virus all at once – which a traditional test can’t do. Due to ViroCap’s sensitivity, it could also detect “variant strains of viruses that are closely related genetically.” Results show that ViroCap did 52% better than a typical PCR test.
