Coronavirus: What to do if we have symptoms and we are at home
These steps should be followed by those who think they have been infected with the coronavirus
With more than 2,000 cases of coronavirus in the country and a lockdown, the question that arises is what we can do if we get the virus. Thus, according to experts, in case of the first symptoms similar to those of the coronavirus, you can contact Aegean Medical Service to book an appointment for a molecular test Covid 19 at home, which takes place in conditions of safety, comfort and discretion for the patient.
COVID-19 tests are performed by taking a nasopharyngeal sample for molecular control with a special cotton swab, by specialized doctors. It is then decided whether the patient should be quarantined at home for at least 14 days or in need of treatment and should be transported to a coronavirus reference hospital. In case we have been in contact with a positive case of coronavirus without symptoms, there is the possibility of molecular testing, which should be performed after 4 to 5 days after contact so that a sufficient incubation time has elapsed for optimal accuracy of the result.
However, experts say that there is a possibility that a patient is sick but without symptoms. In this case, the patient must strictly follow the rules of hygiene set by the authorities.
