The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new virus of global health significance caused by infection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS- CoV-2). On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is thought to spread from person to person in close contact through respiratory droplets. It is also possible that a person can catch COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it.

The CDC reports that the following symptoms may appear 2–14 days after exposure:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING FOR COVID-19

The test detects the presence of SARS-CoV-2 and is for use with patients who meet current guidance for evaluation of infection with COVID-19.

The test has been made available pursuant to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for diagnostic testing in CLIA Certified high-complexity laboratories.
