How is coronavirus diagnosed in Voronezh

Timely diagnosis for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection in the human body will help overcome the severe symptoms of the disease and cure it without complications. In addition, in this way, you can eliminate the risk of infecting others with the virus. It is possible to pass the analysis for the purpose of prevention.

In the territory of Voronezh there are isolation points intended for moving to quarantine. Here, Voronezh residents who are suspected of being infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus infection will undergo a 14-day quarantine regime in stationary conditions.

Isolation in special points is carried out by analyzing the general condition of patients.

Diagnosis of coronavirus in Voronezh is carried out on these isolation boxes. Separate isolation boxes exist in the following medical institutions of the Voronezh region:

  • Regional Children's Hospital No. 2;
  • Novousmansk regional hospital (Department of Infectious Diseases);
  • Center for the Prevention and Treatment of AIDS.

Testing for the COVID-19 coronovirus can only be taken with a doctor's prescription. The sample for analysis should be taken only by an employee of a medical organization. It is not envisaged to independently take an analysis for this type of viral infection.

Tests are checked in the laboratory of the Center for Hygiene and Epidemiology of the Voronezh Region.

What biomaterial is needed

Like other respiratory diseases, COVID-19 is mainly spread by airborne droplets. It is also possible to become infected through objects touched by a patient with a coronavirus. In this case, the virus is transmitted to the mucous membrane of the mouth, eyes or nostrils through unwashed hands.

Given the main route of spread of the new virus, analysis requires taking mucus from the respiratory organ (path) or sputum. Testing the sample for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is carried out strictly under laboratory conditions.

The following methods of analysis are used for diagnostics:

  • PCR (polymerase chain reaction);
  • testing;
  • x-ray examination (+computed tomography).

Biomarker analysis is also carried out. Such a check will help to individually determine the severity (course) of the disease in the patient's body.

How long to wait for the result

A swab taken from a patient for analysis is placed in a sealed package, then the sample will be numbered. Assigning a number to each assay is necessary in order to avoid accidental loss of a sample or sample mix-up.

Then the sample is packed in a zip bag and additionally in a special material. After that, the sample can be placed in a container.

The result can be revealed after 6 hours of testing. If the analysis needs to be transported to another testing center, it may take a little longer (2 days).

In the test check (developed by FBU Rospotrebnadzor), only 4 test tubes are used. 2 of them contain reagents. The reaction mixture can only be diluted by laboratory specialists. And the other 2 tubes are needed for sequential testing. If there is a suspicion of infection with SARS-CoV-2 infection, but the result is negative, then a re-analysis is performed.

Private laboratories: prices, addresses, phones

It is planned to carry out diagnostics and analysis for COVID-19 in private laboratories and clinics. But, so far, the service is available only in state medical organizations. For example, in the laboratories of Homotest and Helix, preparatory work is underway to conduct an analysis for the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
