Face masks that can diagnose COVID-19

(Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard) What if your face mask could tell you if you have COVID-19? Now it can, thanks to researchers from the Wyss Institute and MIT. They embedded freeze-dried cell-free biological reactions that can detect SARS-CoV-2 in a patient's breath into a face mask, creating a wearable diagnostic that can quickly and accurately diagnose COVID-19.
