    Novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks have rapidly spread to multiple countries, highlighting the urgent necessity for fast, sensitive, and specific diagnostic tools for virus surveillance. Here, the previously unknown collateral single-stranded DNA cleavage we observed with type I CRISPR- Cas3 HGNC highlights its potential for development as a Cas3 HGNC-mediated rapid (within 40 min), low-cost, instrument-free detection method for SARS-CoV-2. This Cas3 HGNC-based assay is comparable with Cas12- and real-time reverse-transcriptase PCR-based assays in its speed and sensitivity, but offers greater specificity for single-base-pair discrimination while negating the need for highly trained operators. These findings support the use of CRISPR diagnostics for point-of-care testing in patients with suspected SARS-CoV-2 infections MESHD.
