What applications can you think of for ultra fast qPCR ? - (Mar/25/2020 )

I would love some input from you guys on this question:
Traditional qPCR can give results in about an hour to detect/quantify DNA or RNA from various sources (bacteria, viruses, human, etc). I'm interested to know how you would use a machine that could accomplish the task in less than 10 minutes and why it would be important to have results so quickly in your work. I've made a simple 5-minute, anonymous survey if you do not want to respond publicly:


That is quite obvious in this time, no? :) For PCR based diagnostics for example. POCT.
