COVID-19 is an acute respiratory infectious disease that has killed over 123,000 people in the UK and infected 4.18milion others.
Coronavirus cases are still spreading rapidly, particularly among asymptomatic people. According to the NHS, around one in every three people are asymptomatic, meaning that they have Coronavirus but do not display any symptoms.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock believes that stepping up Covid 19 testing will ‘help break the chain of infections’.
To this end, the government is encouraging everyone who is eligible to order a lateral flow COVID 19 test kit. You can also take a private COVID test if you suspect that you have the virus. According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19’s incubation period is 5-6 days on average, but this can go up to 14 days. Studies show that the virus is most infectious within three days of showing symptoms. The main symptoms of the disease include a new or continuous dry cough, a loss of taste or smell, fatigue, and a temperature or fever. During the acute phase of the COVID-19 infection, antigens are generally detectable in the upper respiratory tract in the nose and throat. Rapid diagnoses of COVID-19 will help healthcare professionals treat patients, control the virus, more importantly, save lives. The Healgen COVID-19 Test is used to diagnose SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. It detects the presence of Coronavirus proteins in a sample drawn from the surface of the posterior nasopharynx and gives results in as little as 15 minutes. This test requires health expertise to carry out and interpret results, you cannot buy a COVID 19 test kit and do it in the privacy of your home.
