Abstract

We propose a tested, sensitive and prompt COVID-19 breath-screening method that takes less than one[1]minute. The non-biological method is based on detection of shift in terahertz resonance-frequency of a nanoengineered LC-resonant metamaterial chip, caused by viruses and related exhaled particles. The chip is enclosed in breathalyzer-like enclosure, which is shown to optically suppress Fabry-Pérot, for the first time. Low-scale clinical trials were conducted with asymptomatic, symptomatic coronavirus-patients and healthy individuals, where coronavirus-positive are effectively-screened with 87% accuracy, from healthy individuals.
