Who Should Get Tested For COVID-19?

In today’s day and age, it is truly a crucial time for everyone to do their part and stay safe.

The Coronavirus has caused a global pandemic, and in times like these, plenty of people have questions that need answers.

“What can we do to stay safe?”

“How can I know what the symptoms are?”

“How do I know if I have it?”

Medical experts and organizations, like the CDC,  all around the world are racing to provide answers for questions like these, and experts such as Dr. Edward Nash can help you in these trying times by getting tested for COVID-19.

COVID-19: What Is It?

COVID-19 is a virus that first began to spread in Wuhan, China. The virus has since spread across a good portion of the globe, hitting the United States of America, Italy, and other countries.

The virus causes upper respiratory infections, with common symptoms including a running nose, a cough, and breathing issues.

Who Is At Risk?

During a time of a pandemic, anyone who has traveled to countries with a very high rate of infections, like China, Italy, and others, are definitely at risk and should take precautionary measures in order to avoid passing the disease along to others.

Not only are travelers at risk, the elderly, as well as younger children and babies, are also people who fall under the high-risk umbrella due to their immune systems not being as strong as the average healthy adult.

Those who are already sick and find themselves to be near an area where the outbreak is strong, as well as around other people who have contracted the virus themselves are at risk as well.

COVID-19 Symptoms

If there’s a disease running rampant in the world, it is important to know and be able to identify signs of that disease.

Being able to identify the symptoms is not only beneficial for you and your loved ones, but it is also important to be able to spot people out in public who may potentially have the virus, thus enabling you to be able to avoid coming into contact with the virus.

So far, the known symptoms for COVID-19 are as follows:

  • Fever
  • Unnatural feelings of fatigue
  • Dry, hacking coughs
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Aches and pains
  • Sore throat
  • Nasal congestion

If you have been traveling, around the sick, and are experiencing these symptoms, it would be wise for you to get tested as soon as possible to know what your status is regarding Covid-19.

How To Get Tested

While being able to self-diagnose and help prevent the spread of such an infection, it is important to not rely solely on guesswork. Getting tested and having the proper knowledge of your current wellbeing is vital at times like these.
