The FDA issued its first green light for an at-home COVID-19 diagnostic that delivers results through the user’s smartphone, streamlining self-testing for students and employees as they begin to return to classrooms and the workplace.

Developed by BD in collaboration with the digital testing company Scanwell Health, the Veritor rapid antigen test operates similar to a home pregnancy test, at first. After swishing a nasal swab in a tube of liquid reagents, drops on a testing strip trigger colored lines after about 15 minutes. There the smartphone takes over, using its camera to read and interpret the results more definitively.


It may seem like COVID-19 restrictions are easing up right and left. But with the World Health Organization still tracking hundreds of millions of confirmed cases around the globe, travel can still be uncertain. Depending on where you want to visit, it can be daunting to figure out whether it’s safe and what precautions and requirements are needed before you go.

A recent survey from Destination Analysts found more than 40% of Americans have some reservations that may keep them from traveling. Respondents said concerns about the safety of others and themselves as well as COVID-19 variants are key considerations


It’s fair to say that last year saw one of, if not the biggest, shift in online shopping the Australian market has ever seen. Thousands of new customers entered the fray, as did brands that hadn’t properly entered the world of e-commerce until a global pandemic forced their hand. 

And as more customers and retailers join the online shopping boom, the e-commerce space in Australia gets more crowded and brands need to do more in order to stand out and connect.

“I think everyone is aware that they’re having to transform the way they do business to make sure that


A novel rapid COVID-19 test has been proposed, promising to provide accurate results in less than 30 minutes using a simple hand-held device, a nasal swab and a smartphone camera. The breakthrough device can potentially be modified to detect many other viral diseases and was developed in collaboration with Jennifer Doudna, who recently won a Nobel Prize for co-discovering the revolutionary CRISPR gene editing technology.

The current gold-standard test for SARS-CoV-2 is polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing. This test involves several steps involving the conversion of viral RNA into DNA, and then amplifying those DNA segments over several hours until


When New Jersey assessed the technology it was using three years ago to power everything from state employee payroll to police dispatch, it found what one expert calls massive neglect.

Many programs were deemed high-risk because they were so old, and in other cases just a single state employee knew how to use them.

As a result, some systems were ill-equipped to handle the surge of information and demand generated by this year’s double jolt of a pandemic and an economic tailspin. New Jersey’s antiquated system used for unemployment couldn’t keep up, and residents who lost their jobs or couldn’t


More than 14{cb3fe4c54de06d7c4b8dceae281fb32e521027d1659af7adec2f427d2f5333d9} of Washington state’s population has signed up for WA Notify, the app designed to let people know if they’ve been exposed to COVID-19.

OLYMPIA, Wash. — More than 1 million Washingtonians have enabled a coronavirus exposure app in the first four days of the technology going live statewide.

On Monday, the state joined more than a dozen states that have already enlisted the use of smartphone technology in the ongoing effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

People with iPhones can enable the ‘exposure notifications’ feature that is already in their phone’s settings, and Android devices can
