Takara Bio announced they developed a method to perform 5000 PCR tests in less than 2 hours.
Now this will not completely open international travel, but I expect it to improve and I guess we will eventually see a PCR test area before check-in to a flight.
1. PCR test before check-in
2. Only Negative (obviously) results will be allowed to check-in
3. Another PCR test after arrival and before immigration? Or will they have a treaty which they will accept tests from another country?
It kind or reminds me security tests before boarding a flight, and in some cases, airlines, destinations more thorough tests and rules.
This will make travel slower, as need to spend at least 4-5 hours longer per flight, but will make travel possible.
Can’t wait to see it implemented, or maybe the vaccine will be available earlier.
