By linking the information entered, we provide opportunities to make unexpected discoveries and obtain. COVID-19 pandemic has overburdened healthcare systems in most countries and has led to massive economic losses. SARS-CoV-2 transmission typically occurs by respiratory droplets. The average incubation period is 6.4 days and presenting symptoms typically include fever, cough, dyspnea, myalgia or fatigue. While the majority of patients tend to have a mild illness, a minority of patients develop severe hypoxia requiring hospitalization and mechanical ventilation. Management is mostly supportive. Although real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay is considered the first tool to make a definitive diagnosis of COVID-19 disease, the high false negative rate, low sensitivity, limited supplies and strict requirements for laboratory settings might delay accurate diagnosis. Computed tomography (CT) has been reported as an important tool to identify and investigate suspected patients with COVID-19 disease at early stage The COVID-19 Pandemic: A Comprehensive Review of Taxonomy, Genetics, Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Treatment, and Control J Clin Med . 2020 Apr 24;9(4):1225. doi: 10.3390/jcm9041225 COVID-19 has spread globally since its discovery in Hubei province, China in December 2019. A combination of computed tomography imaging, whole genome sequencing, and electron microscopy were initially used to screen and identify SARS-CoV-2, the viral etiology of COVID-19.

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a major impact on clinical microbiology laboratories in the past several months. This commentary covers current issues and challenges for the laboratory diagnosis of infections caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). In the preanalytical stage, collecting the proper respiratory tract specimen at the right time from the right. Diagnosis of COVID-19 requires detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA or antigen in respiratory specimens. Detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA is better in nasopharynx samples compared with throat samples. (32,47,52) Lower respiratory samples may have better viral yield than upper respiratory samples. (53) SARS-CoV-2 antigen tests can also be used in a variety of testing strategies.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is changing the management of many chronic diseases, including that of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). In particular, the performance of routine endoscopy is temporarily suspended, and only emergency endoscopy is allowed in many countries where severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has spread COVID-19 crisis. Risk management becomes especially important during times of crisis to retain customer trust and ensure the stability of the ﬁnancial system.

The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel (the Panel) recommends providing supportive care and symptomatic management to outpatients with COVID-19; steps should also be taken to reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission to others. 1,2 Patients should be advised about when to seek in-person evaluation Of the diagnosed COVID-19 cases, less than 20% are severe. Findings from our study indicated that there is no need to be panic from a public health population perspective. Although the total cases COVID-19 reached to big numbers, but the 2-month incidence rate was about a half of the natural death rate for Wuhan residents. References. 1.
