Reasons for Doing This Study:

Pandemics are outbreaks of disease that become widespread via human-to-human infection. Recent disease outbreaks and pandemics include the Spanish flu, the Hong Kong flu, SARS, H7N9, Ebola and Zika (WHO, 2011b). The main features of a pandemic include broad geographic spread, disease movement, novelty, intensity, high attack rates and explosivity, limited population immunity, infectiousness and contagiousness. Pandemics have adversely affected the health of the planet's inhabitants and have destabilized the world's economies, social infrastructures, and geopolitical and natural environments. In China, in December 2019, the new coronavirus disease was detected for the first time. As of March 2021, it continues to affect people across the globe. Early and accurate diagnosis of COVID-19 (the disease caused by an infection with the new coronavirus) is critical to controlling its spread and improving health outcomes.

With the spread of COVID-19, the demand for molecular testing, which is considered the gold standard for diagnosing infectious disease, has increased. In the U.S. and Europe alone, the use of molecular diagnostics increased by 20% between March 2020 and October 2020. The volume of point-of-care (POC) testing has risen during the COVID-19 pandemic in response to demand for faster on-site screening. The response to that has been the accelerated development of new diagnostic technologies, such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) and CRISPR. Those technologies could soon challenge the leading position of the current RT-PCR systems for viral COVID-19 tests, particularly if regulators further facilitate their rapid introduction.

The growth of the global COVID-19 diagnostics market is being fueled by several factors, including the increasing numbers of COVID 19 cases; government and private funds to support the R&D of COVID-19 test kits and vaccines; the rising number of emergency use authorizations (EUAs) for diagnostic kits and devices; the growing geriatric population; and increasing support by non-medical device and diagnostics companies.
