How to get tested for coronavirus in Yekaterinburg

The coronavirus infection has spread all over the world at lightning speed. It is impossible to diagnose the disease only by the clinical picture, therefore, special laboratory tests are carried out. Diagnosis of coronavirus in Yekaterinburg is done by qualified specialists in a state hospital.

How is coronavirus diagnosed?

There are two methods for determining coronavirus - a test system and an express test. The first can be performed only in the laboratory. With the help of laboratory diagnostics, the infection of patients is determined. The study uses PCR tests that determine the RNA of the coronavirus. The PCR tests were developed within a week of his genome being deciphered by Chinese experts.

To conduct an express test, venous or capillary blood is needed, the sampling of which is carried out by medical workers of any hospital. With the help of this type of research, indirect signs of the virus are detected.

What biomaterial is needed?

For the study, it is recommended to take a swab from the nasopharynx or oropharynx. The collection of material is carried out by a medical worker. In some cases, sputum is used as a biomaterial to diagnose coronavirus.

How long to wait for the result?

Analysis in the laboratory is performed within 2-3 hours. The patient will receive the results within 5-6 hours. With an increase in the number of patients, the duration of diagnosis can be 1-2 days. If the result of the analysis is positive, then it is transferred to the doctor, who will make a diagnosis and prescribe treatment.

How many times is the test repeated?

The press secretary of the department of Rospotrebnadzor reports that two tests are being done simultaneously in Yekaterinburg. One sample is sent to Novosibirsk, and the second is tested at the Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology.

Is there a coronavirus system test in the city?

The test for coronavirus in Yekaterinburg appeared in late January - early February. The Chinese virus can only be detected at the Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology in the city. Testing in Yekaterinburg is carried out only by doctors of the fortieth hospital.

Symptoms to check: who can count on a free test

Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has an incubation period of 1-14 days. At this time, the symptoms of the disease may be mild or absent. In the initial stages of the development of coronavirus, its symptoms are similar to those of an acute respiratory viral infection. During the incubation period, a person is a carrier of the infection.

The disease is accompanied by fever, pain during swallowing and sneezing. Patients complain of frequent headaches. In pathology, dry cough and muscle pain are noted. Some patients talk about the appearance of rhinitis and chills.

After contracting the coronavirus, its symptoms are identical to those of the common cold. The disease manifests itself:

  • weakness;
  • dry cough;
  • An increase in temperature.

Some patients with coronavirus develop diarrhea and develop conjunctivitis. With a mild form of the disease, pneumonia is not diagnosed. Body temperature may remain normal or rise slightly. A severe form of pathology is accompanied by a sharp deterioration in health. If a person did not seek medical help in time, this leads to a sharp increase in body temperature, the appearance of an unproductive persistent cough, and the development of respiratory failure. In the presence of concomitant diseases, there is a significant deterioration in the health of patients.

Where to go to get tested for coronavirus?

It is not possible to test for coronavirus in Yekaterinburg at will. At the moment, people who have returned to the region from countries with an unfavorable epidemiological situation have the right to be diagnosed. The examination is shown to people who have been in contact with patients with coronavirus infection. If a patient has symptoms of an acute respiratory viral infection, then he is eligible for testing.

If a coronavirus is suspected, the patient is advised to contact GKB 40 and other medical institutions at the place of registration. Doctors do not risk visiting hospitals for people who are at risk, as there is a risk of infecting strangers. When the first symptoms of the disease appear, a person is advised to call a doctor at home or call an ambulance at 112.

After examining the patient, the doctor will take the material, which will be sent to the laboratory for research. A person is hospitalized in a hospital where he stays until the results are received. If it is positive, then the patient remains in a medical institution and he is prescribed a course of treatment. If the result is negative, the person is recommended to self-isolate and retake the test.
