The researchers work has been noted in several Swedish newspapers and Swedish public service did an interview with Sophia last week, on how the research is progressing.

"We are developing a new method to analyze to see if patients and people have been affected by the coronavirus. We have the instruments in place. After all, we can run 7,000 patients in one week," Sophia Hober says to SVT.
