Although there is no clinical test to diagnose the presence of the coronavirus, a case of acute flaccid myelitis (AFP) has been reported as being an effective test. The reporting hospital has found that the patient was fully recovered from the onset of the symptoms within a few hours of the development of the illness. The observation of the patient does not show any new neurological symptoms, but the absence of fever and absence of cardiac symptoms such as palpitation and palpitations are suggestive of the presence of the virus.
People with AFP generally develop significant respiratory tract symptoms such as a cough, a sneeze and other symptoms which are similar to those of common colds. Although the only symptom is an absence of fever, a mild respiratory tract infection is the main reason for this. The only major difference is that the respiratory tract infection does not follow a high fever but persists at a lower temperature.
The person who has the illness does not experience fever, but the absence of the usual high fever does not make the patient less able to tolerate the cold. When the fever is high, patients with AFP can suffer from pneumonia. In the present case, the patient had previously suffered from pneumonia. Since there are no new neurological symptoms, the diagnosis of pneumonia would have to be based on the absence of fever and the absence of other respiratory tract symptoms.
As long as the symptoms of AFP are limited to respiratory tract symptoms, the absence of fever could be a distinct possibility. In fact, if the patient is treated with antiviral drugs and if he is not required in the intensive care unit, the absence of fever can still be ruled out. But if the patient develops other neurological symptoms, then the presence of the virus can be proven.
In the present instance, the patient’s complaints included a fever which was comparable to the level of flu that occurs during the influenza season. Although it is not mandatory that a fever should be present to be diagnosed with the coronavirus, the absence of any respiratory symptoms should lead to the evaluation of the virus. There are many ways to check for the presence of the virus. Several non-invasive tests such as PCR, RT-PCR, and RT-QPCR can be used to detect the presence of the virus in tissue or cells of the blood or in tissues or cells of the respiratory tract.
The patient’s temperature can be tested for the presence of the virus with the use of a polymerase chain reaction assay, an indirect test that does not require that the patient cough up the virus. This assay is also effective in detecting the presence of the virus in the muscle. If the patient complains of a severe headache and has a progressive weakness, weakness of the muscles, and a tingling feeling in the hands and fingers, then the presence of the virus should be confirmed.
Furthermore, the patient can be tested by using different methods to determine the viral environment of the lungs or the upper respiratory tract. Different fluorescent techniques and magnetic resonance imaging are also used to provide a very clear picture of the viral environment. Once the patient’s results of the tests for the presence of the virus are known, they can be compared with the results of laboratory tests and the presence of the virus can be shown.
