COVID-19 Special: Episode 2 – RAZOR

In the second COVID-19 special Emma Keeling speaks to immunobiologist Akiko Iwasaki, a professor from the Yale School of Medicine. She's working on a simple, non-invasive saliva test to detect the virus.

Contact tracing will play an important part in helping society open up and stop the virus from spreading. Data systems and mobile technology will keep track of whether someone comes into contact with the virus and sends an alert if they need to isolate.

Jo Colan speaks to Chris Toumazou and his team who have adapted their testing cartridges – which were originally designed to help people make healthy food choices based on their DNA profile – to test for the coronavirus.

And Avi Schiffman, 17, explains to RAZOR's Shini Somara how and why he created the website, which tracks data and statistics about the spread of the coronavirus pandemic and displays it all in one place.
