As an infectious disease practitioner I repeat what the media has been constantly saying: this virus is not a joke, stay safe, praying that this nightmare ends soon

Wow, who would have guessed that Fuji would have made such a timely move ??

 (I'm confined to stay at home ....... by downloading a paper I can go out just a short time for shopping and or the Chemist/doctor.)

  Thanks for this news Toni  !!

Yes, Fuji makes also nice diagnostic machines for GPs and HMOs to do routine blood tests that give results in minutes. And guess how the layer of dry chemicals is supported? With a transparent sheet produced in large roles before being cut.... I smell film.... 

I follow Toni,  stay safe, practice social distancing (don't mingle, stay away from another person by 2 meters), beware of surfaces that others may have touched (i.e. wash hands often, sterilize, gloves, etc.). The really bad thing is, even people that have few symptoms can carry and spread it. So treat anybody, including yourself, as if they are a carrier.
The virus needs a living host to thrive, but has to jump from one to the next. If we stop this, the virus is dead. 
And to Toni, all the best to you, looking at Italy, it will be very hard with many tragedies. Western countries were not adequately prepared, a lack of face masks before we even have the peak. 
Good luck.
Well Canon is developping a rapid diagnostic test much much needed nowadays...
