Does anyone think they could develop a COVID19 smartphone test similar to this $34 test they made for aids? Answered

hiv test

In theory it is possible but not practical.
The virus changes (unlike HIV) and by the time you have the device approved and in production the virus might have mutated.
And if you trust our officials it will be over soon anyway.
