The Symptoms and Preventive Measures Against COVID-19
A newly developed blood test can provide early and accurate diagnosis of COVID-19 infection, especially in the elderly. The blood test detects the presence of antibodies against a specific strain of the SARS virus in the patients’ blood. In most patients, this condition occurs within two days after the onset of the first symptoms of SARS. The disease is spread rapidly from person to person through contact with a patient’s body fluids such as secretions from the nose, eyes, or mouth.
COVID-15 and COVID-17 are caused by a group of coronaviruses called SARS-coV. Patients with heart or lung diseases or people who are currently experiencing severe underlying respiratory illnesses including lung cancer or bronchitis appear to be at increased risk for contracting more serious complications from COVEN-19 infection. In order to reduce the number of SARS patients with serious complications, WHO recommended that all countries conduct regular routine blood tests for these coronaviruses.
The blood test detects antibodies against a specific strain of the SARS virus and it is very easy to administer and interpret. The test can provide rapid information on an individual’s current condition and allow medical personnel to decide on the best course of action for treatment of the patient.
There are some precautions that must be taken before administering any type of blood test. For example, COVID-15 and COVID-17 antibodies cannot be detected in urine, saliva or semen. As such, if you suspect you may be infected with either of these two strains, you should notify your doctor promptly.
In addition, the test detects a specific antibody, which is an antibody that recognizes the molecule of the virus (virion) that is attached to the surface of a T-cells. Therefore, when a person’s blood cells are infected with COVID-17 virus, the antibodies will also be infected, increasing the chances that COVID-19 virus will be reactivated in the bloodstream.
If you do not wish to undergo a blood test, you can still receive the test at your physician’s office. These blood tests are easy to administer and inexpensive. There are several reputable companies in the market that offer them at reasonable prices and can provide you with accurate results.
Because this disease has no symptoms, patients diagnosed with COVID-19 are advised to follow a healthy and proper diet to maintain a normal PH level in their bodies. They should also avoid prolonged periods of extreme stress, as these conditions increase the chance that these antibodies will activate in their bloodstream.
The infection occurs when the body is unable to fight off an infection. When the body is weakened, it is not able to defend itself and is not able to kill the bacteria that causes the infection. When the body is weakened, it is easy for the infection to multiply.
Effective ways to prevent this disease are by reducing the risk of the disease from happening in the first place. By following proper health care and by avoiding exposure to high risk groups, your chances of contracting COVID-19 can be reduced significantly. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you can avoid having this disease.
