CDC test for the virus that causes the coronavirus is now live and available for the first time.
The CDC released a test Thursday that tests the virus on the tongue, cheeks and forehead of infected people and in some cases, on the lips of those who have recovered from infection.
The test is called Rapid Antigen Test (RAT), and is a test for two proteins called Covid-19 and a protein called CD4 T-cell receptor.
These proteins are found in both the blood and in the skin.
People who have been infected with the virus can be tested with RAT if they have not yet recovered from the virus.
The virus that caused the coronasvirus outbreak has mutated into a strain that is less virulent and causes more serious illness, but not life-threatening illness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
