NATO has announced it is launching a scientific project to rapidly and accurately diagnose Covid-19 cases.

The multi-year project is underway under NATO’s Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme and is being led by scientists from Italy’s Istituto Superiore di Sanità (National Health Institute) and Tor Vergata University Hospital alongside staff from University Hospital of Basel University in Switzerland.

The project will run over two years, with the goal of bringing more speed and efficiency to the diagnosis of Covid-19 cases.

NATO’s Assistant Secretary-General for Emerging Security Challenges Dr. Antonio Missiroli said: “This SPS project is an excellent example of the research community’s global effort to fight against COVID-19.

“This project also stresses the dedication of Allies to support each other, as well as partners, in times of crisis; and while the expected results of this project are extremely relevant to the situation the world currently finds itself in, we look forward to the long-term impact it will have on the international response to naturally occurring and man-made viruses and pathogens,”
