New Rapid Saliva-Based Covid-19 Test Could Be a 'Game Changer'

Researchers from the Yale School of Public Health have created a rapid detection COVID-19 test.

The "SalivaDirect" test received emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration on Saturday.

Officials say the SalivaDirect test will be a "game-changer" that will reduce the demand for scarce testing resources.

Unlike other tests that require specialized supplies, the SalivaDirect test doesn't require a specific swab or collection device.
