Exploring Bioscience: A Brazilian perspective on developing tests for Covid-19 and future pandemics
There is a lot of difference between Brazil and Denmark - not the least when it comes to the Covid-19 outbreak - which put a pressure on the Brazilian healthcare system to quickly develop a testing method.
