A new face mask could diagnose those who wear it with COVID-19 within about 90 minutes, according to a study conducted by engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University
The masks have tiny, disposable sensors, referred to as Specific High-sensitivity Enzymatic Reporter unLOCKing (SHERLOCK). The study, published in Nature Biotechnology, shows that the sensors could also be incorporated into clothing, providing a new way to monitor exposure to the virus.
