Dr. Kevin Most: New research regarding blood type and COVID-19


DERBY, ENGLAND – MARCH 16: In this photo illustration, a worker demonstrates the use of a Coronavirus, Covid-19, 10 minute blood test on March 16, 2020 in Derby, England. Surescreen Diagnostics based in Derby claim the new blood test can give a result for Covid-19 within 10 minutes. The test can be self administered with capillary blood taken from a fingertip. The result in the test cassette is viewed in a similar way to a pregnancy test. The Derbyshire company is increasing production and says the ten minute test ‘costs a few pounds’ GBP.
