Rapid and visual detection of 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) by a reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification assay
Methods: We designed primers specific to the orf1ab and S genes of SARS-CoV-2. Total viral RNA was extracted using the QIAamp Viral RNA Mini Kit. Assay: 58 specimens were confirmed to be positive and 72 were negative by RT-LAMP. sensitivity was 100% (95% CI 92.3%-100%), specificity 100% and sensitivity (95%)
