Huge strides are being made when it comes to creating devices to detect COVID-19 faster.

Researchers at the University of Arizona are working on what's being called the Flower Device.

Head researcher, Judith Su, says it will be able to detect COVID-19 before symptoms arise.

She also says the device will be able detect the virus in about 30 seconds.

Testing is still underway and there's no word yet on when it might be available to the public.
