World Immunization Week 2022 + New COVID-19 Breath Test Gets FDA Authorization – Xtalks Life Science Podcast Ep. 58

In this episode, Ayesha talked about World Immunization Week, which is celebrated during the last week of April every year. The theme of this year’s World Immunization Week is “Long Life For All,” which aims to communicate the importance of vaccines for a healthy and fulfilling life by protecting yourself and your loved ones against deadly diseases. Immunization programs were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic but find out how immunization rates have been on the decline, particularly in developing countries, which have led to the resurgence of diseases like polio and measles.

The editorial team also discussed a new COVID-19 breathalyzer test that recently received emergency use authorization (EUA) from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The mobile rapid test generates results in just three minutes from a sample of exhaled air. Hear more about how the test in the podcast, including how it works and about its high degree of sensitivity and specificity that edges out rapid antigen tests.
