A Dublin based company has developed a rapid test to check for the coronavirus.
Hibergene has developed a ten minute test that checks for the illness and the results are available within in an hour.
It can be done where the patient is located and the results don't have to go to a lab.
Covid-19 - the official name given to the infection - has now made more than 44,000 people ill and killed over a thousand.
