A test for "corona" by "gargling" for ages between 4 and 19 years in Canada
The province of British Columbia, in Canada, launched a new gargle method for students between the ages of 4 and 19
"It's one of the first of its kind around the world," said British Columbia Regional Health Officer Bonnie Henry, at a press conference.
The British Columbia Center for Disease Control said that the new test to detect infection with the new Corona virus, which causes the Covid-19 epidemic, is just as accurate as the tests using a nasal swab, but it is much easier for children, according to what CNN reported.
Henry explained, "This is gargling with a new saline solution, where you add a little normal saline solution to that sterile water in your mouth, move it a little, and then spit it out into a small tube. This is an easier way to collect it for young people and young people."
