Covid19 test results

Covid19 test results
With my COPD, everytime i get a cold it can get serious in a hurry. The other week I had a cold and fever so my pulmo said to get covid 19 tested which I did. In the end the results were negative. The purpose of this is to show what they do test for. Or at least this is what i was tested for. If the picture is not cpap related I will gladly link it from my website space.

RE: Covid19 test results
I don't see why this info isn't relevant on both Apnea and the COVID-19 pandemic.

That's got a lot of test aspects noted. Glad you got a negative.

RE: Covid19 test results
Wow, Bill...  that's one heck of a group of tests.  I had no clue a hospital would test for that many things when a potential COVID-19 patient comes in.

Interesting, I noticed that they list three different Coronavirus results at the bottom of the list--   N1, N2 & N3... are those 3 different strains of COVID-19, meaning it's already mutated into 3 strains?

I don't think it means 3 strains because theres no mention of that anywhere. I suspect but can't prove that it's 3 different covid 19 tests looking at it from different angles such as has it, had it or carrier of it. that makes the most sense because there's no google results for the 3 specific things. for those that don't know covid19 = Corona Virus 2019, the year it was first detected.

i didn't go to a hospital. i called my pulmonologist. he said because i had 2 symptoms i should go to a specific urgent care clinic that was set up for covid19 testing. i called the clinic who passed my info to their in residence dr.  the dr called and talked to me and decided i needed a test and notified the schedulers who gave me a appointment. i drove to the clinic. a tech came out to the car, put a qtip in my nose and then one in my throat, took my temperature and pulse/ox and i was on my way. the results took about a week.

N1, N2, and N3 refer to three separate tests that target different regions of the Coronavirus Nucleoplasmid (N) gene Smile
