Those infected with the new coronavirus can exhibit a range of varying symptoms over a 2 – 14-day period while some individuals may not experience any symptoms at all. Some of these symptoms include:
• Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
• Sore throat
• Muscle pain
• Sudden loss of smell or taste
What Does Testing Entail?
There are two types of diagnostics that can be performed to detect COVID-19: a viral test and an antibody test. The viral test is effective in detecting an existing condition while an antibody test can determine if a patient had a previous illness based on the antibodies present in the blood. Viral testing for the new coronavirus varies, depending on your location.
At Grand Prairie Urgent Care and Family Medicine, we're also proud to perform antibody tests in patients who are noticing the signs or have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 a few weeks prior but were unable to acquire testing sooner. To conduct antibody tests, one of our providers will take a sample of your blood to look for igM (immunoglobulin M) and igG (immunoglobulin G) antibodies. The presence of these structures can tell us if the body recently fought off an infection and may help our team determine if you were a carrier of COVID-19.
