This Horizon Scan report examines the use of breath tests to detect severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19 infections. Breath tests for SARS-CoV-2 work by analyzing the volatile organic compounds (compounds produced by virus-infected cells) present in exhaled breath. Issues related to these tests, such as current practice and cost, are explored in this report.
