Results in 5 minutes - Gibraltarian microbiologist involved in new pioneering Coronavirus test

A coronavirus test pioneered with the help of local microbiologist Dr Nick Cortes is being trialled in the UK. This was announced by Health Secretary Matt Hancock who said the new swab test which gives results in 5 minutes, does not need to be sent to a lab.

Doctor Cortes has procured these tests, which show who's currently got the virus, for Gibraltar.
