Les Echos – EasyCov, un test salivaire de dépistage rapide du Covid-19

Un simple prélèvement de salive pourrait permettre de savoir, en trente minutes, si un patient est porteur du coronavirus. C'est l'objectif du projet EasyCov, qui vise à mettre au point un test salivaire de dépistage rapide du Covid-19, qui sera utilisable par le corps médical. Des essais cliniques sont en cours au CHU de Montpellier sur 180 personnes, afin d'évaluer son efficacité et sa fiabilité.
