Florence hospital in breakthrough on virus affecting kids

Molecular saw detects fast both COVID-19 and RSV

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 26 - Florence's Meyer Children's Hospital has made a key breakthrough on a virus affecting very young children which has put hospital capacity under severe strain across Italy, sources said Friday.
    Doctors at the Florentine hospital have come up with a single molecular swab that quickly and at the same time detects the presence of the coronavirus and also RSV, respiratory syncytial virus, which hits the youngest.
    "This is a small revolution which enables us to immediately isolate postive cases", said the hospital. (ANSA).
