- Short description
Columbia University researchers have created a new coronavirus test that can detect COVID-19 even in people with mild or no symptoms. That's crucial for stopping the virus because more than half of new cases have been infected by people who didn't know they had it.
Their lab currently has capacity to run 200 tests a day. With an emergency infusion of funding, they can quickly ramp that up to 1000 or more. Because applying for grants takes too much time, we are asking individuals to step up and help at C3test.org.
