Harvard University researchers believe blood test could detect Zika

Researchers from Harvard University believe a new blood test could detect the Zika virus at a faster rate. 

Scientists dropped blood samples from monkeys infected with Zika on a special type of paper that changes color when the virus is present. 

The test was successful in identifying monkeys infected with Zika. 

Scientists said more research is needed, but they hope the test can be used on people in the future.
