Beijing: China has introduced a test to diagnose COD-19, for which samples are taken from the anus instead of the throat or nose, and this test is more convenient and reliable.
The deadly coronavirus, which broke out in December 2019, wreaked havoc around the world and the world was once again facing a new epidemic. He faced an enemy whose form, structure, temperament, and war were almost unknown.
The first step was to diagnose the virus, for which two methods were devised: a swab test, for which mucus or saliva is taken from the nose and throat. The second is the antibody test, in which a blood sample is taken. Experts prefer the swab test
It was initially said that the first stage of the corona virus is in the throat, after which it hardens the lungs and destroys them. However, later information revealed that the virus also reaches the kidneys, meaning that the system enters the excretory system. Thus, experts came up with the idea of another test to detect the presence of corona.
In a new study conducted in April last year, samples were taken from the anus and the results proved to be better than the first two tests, after which the experts suggested to take the sample from the anus along with the throat and nose.
Following the experts’ suggestion, China has become the first country in the world to start taking anal swabs for corona tests.
Announcing the launch of the “anal swab test” on Chinese state television, doctors said the test could be more effective in detecting the virus. This test is being done for free, so information about the cost of the test could not be obtained
