Yes, thank you! 
Their paper suggests that it does work in vivo, at least if you're a hamster.

I mean in human clinical trials :P

This could be a major game-changer. My only question is what happens to the dog's sense of smell if it gets COVID-19.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/24/close-to-100-accuracy-airport-enlists-sniffer-dogs-to-test-for-covid-19

Will any country reopen using this technology?

Never heard of this taking off (can I guess that those who stood to lose money to other methods blocked it?). But now comes this:


Let's see if this will take off. My guess: it won't since it has the potential to put a huge curb on COVID-19. The political withdrawal syndrome is too strong to allow this.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Is Pfizer churning out enough Paxlovid to give to anyone who tests positive and wants it? FWIU distribution for it is a nightmare, but even if thatís fixed I suspect Pfizer canít churn them out quick enough to give it to everyone who wants.

From Gene Weingarten. He is/was a hypochondriac and got nervous every time any COVID related test occured.
