How to diagnose conditions due to this virus?

Here are some things a doctor might do to diagnose a coronavirus that might infect you.

  • View your medical history, including symptoms that you feel
  • Physical examination
  • Do a blood test
  • Perform laboratory tests on phlegm, throat samples, or other respiratory specimens.

So, it is important to report travel history, especially if you are new to the regions mentioned above.

Contact with animals carrying the virus, such as camels and snakes, or using camel-based products is also important to convey to help diagnose diseases caused by coronaviruses.
