Senior Member.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps has claimed that they have developed a hand held detection device to detect Coronavirus. They are making claims that it can detect the virus within 100 metres within seconds.

This is just tragic. Such pseudo science devices have emerged over the years in some countries undergoing a health crisis. The Egyptian military claimed to have developed a hand-held device to detect HIV and Hepatitis back in 2014.

These devices are simply based on and developed from the bomb/explosive detector devices that were sold in their millions to some war ravaged countries, such as Iraq and Afghanistan. With IRGC heavily involved in Iraq this is likely where the idea formed for such a device?

Even after the bomb detectors were shown to have been a scam some countries and military commanders continued to use the devices. At least one British national was jailed for 10 years in the UK. There was a number of these devices and based on novelty golf ball detectors.
