Are there coronavirus tests in Krasnodar

Today, the number one problem for all mankind is the coronavirus pandemic, which began in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Now many European countries are experiencing a serious crisis associated with the epidemic of this infection, which forced the authorities of these states to take tough measures to limit the free movement of citizens, which is due to quarantine measures and the desire to stop the growth in the number of people infected with COVID-19.

As for the Russian Federation, so far in our country the situation with the coronavirus looks quite controlled, so there is no need to talk about the beginning of the epidemic of this infection in the Russian Federation. In any case, many Russian citizens, including residents of Krasnodar, who have returned from countries where the COVID-19 epidemic is already underway, may become potential carriers of the infection. Therefore, it is important to understand where you can get tested for coronavirus in Krasnodar and how the process of taking biological material for its subsequent study takes place.

How is coronavirus diagnosed?

Before you take a coronavirus test in Krasnodar, you should study the testing process, as well as what biomaterials will be taken from a person. In addition, it is important to remember that it makes sense to undergo such an examination only if a person has recently arrived from countries where there is already an epidemic of coronavirus or if he has been in contact with another person who has recently arrived from a trip abroad and has the following symptomatic manifestations:

  • increase in body temperature;
  • general weakness;
  • a sore throat;
  • dry cough.

“Important: doctors recommend that in case of a mild course of the disease, refuse to contact doctors and simply remain in self-isolation until the moment of complete recovery, which will help not only exclude the possibility of infecting other people, but also reduce the overall burden on domestic medicine.”

What biomaterial is needed

Testing for coronavirus in Krasnodar involves taking swabs from the nose and oropharynx for a subsequent study of these biomaterials in order to determine whether a person has been infected with COVID-19. As an additional measure, physicians may resort to taking bronchial washings, blood, urine, or lung tissue for examination by biopsy.

Diagnosis of coronavirus in Krasnodar and other cities of the Russian Federation is carried out using the molecular genetic method of polymerase chain reaction.

“Important: while citizens do not have the opportunity to independently apply to Rospotrebnadzor for testing for coronavirus, this will require a referral from a doctor. Such an examination can only be carried out if the patient has symptoms of COVID-19 or if he was in contact with a person who has already been diagnosed with this infectious disease.”

How long to wait for the result

Analysis for coronavirus infection by polymerase chain reaction is carried out within four hours. True, it is worth noting that the time for obtaining the results of the analyzes will depend, among other things, on the time of transportation of the biomaterial taken from the patient for his laboratory research.

To date, in the Russian Federation, domestically registered test systems are used to diagnose coronavirus. First, the biomaterial is taken from the patient by infectious disease doctors, after which it is sent for the final study to the Vector State Scientific Center for Virology and Biotechnology, located in the Novosibirsk region in the city of Koltsov.

Thus, the final results of the examination from the moment of taking the tests, on average, will have to wait two to three days.

How many times is the test repeated?

Separately, it should be noted that for patients who do not have obvious symptomatic manifestations of ARVI, for an accurate diagnosis of coronavirus infection, two studies will have to be carried out with an interval of several days. Patients with symptoms of acute respiratory viral infections undergo three tests for the fact of infection with COVID-19.

Is there a coronavirus system test in the city

At the moment, you can get tested for coronavirus in Krasnodar. Moreover, such diagnostics can be carried out only in the center of hygiene and epidemiology. To date, all such centers are fully provided with domestic test systems designed specifically to detect coronavirus in human blood. As for private clinics and laboratories, they do not yet supply such domestic test systems.

Survey results in the city

The final results of the examination will come to his attending physician. After that, the patient himself will be able to find out his exact diagnosis.  

“It is worth noting that in case of non-compliance with the self-isolation regime when a person is found to have a coronavirus, he or she faces a prison term of up to 5 years or a fine.”

Symptoms to check: who can count on a free test

Free testing for COVID-19 is carried out by people who have obvious symptoms of infection, as well as people who have arrived from abroad or have been in contact with a person infected with coronavirus.

The most common symptomatic manifestations of COVID-19 are: dry cough, fever, fatigue. Also, in some patients, the disease is accompanied by body aches, nasal congestion, runny nose, pharyngitis and indigestion (diarrhea).

Often, these symptoms develop slowly and are mild. In some people, infection with the virus does not cause any symptoms and deterioration of well-being at all. In 80 percent of cases, people recover on their own without the use of specific treatment. In 15-20 percent of cases, when people become infected with COVID-19, severe symptoms associated with impaired respiratory function as a result of pneumonia develop.

In people over 60 years of age, as well as in people with chronic diseases (diabetes, hepatitis, tuberculosis, cardiovascular pathologies), the risk of a severe course of the disease increases.

With a strong increase in body temperature, as well as in case of breathing complications, you should immediately seek medical help.

Where to go to get tested for coronavirus

If you have symptoms of SARS that appeared after a person has come into contact with a person who has recently arrived from abroad, it is enough to simply call a doctor at home to get tested for coronavirus. To do this, you will need to contact a medical institution at your place of residence, call an ambulance or call the hotline of the Ministry of Health 8 (800) 200-0366.

“It is worth noting that you can also get tested for COVID-19 at the Krasnodar airport. True, tests are taken only from people with symptoms of SARS and countries where the COVID-19 epidemic is now going on.”

Private laboratories: prices, addresses, phones

So far, it is impossible to take an analysis for coronavirus in private medical institutions and laboratories on the territory of the Russian Federation. True, representatives of the leadership of the Invitro laboratory have already reported. That in the near future it will be possible to undergo a similar laboratory examination in the network of their laboratories. The cost of the service will be announced later.
