Which would you prefer: nose swabs or this?
China has recently started using anal swab tests for detecting Covid-19. According to reports, anal swab tests are now being done for some high-risk individuals in the country. And while people are quite uncomfortable about the new process, doctors are claiming that this method is actually far more effective compared with others.
You’an Hospital senior doctor and infectious disease specialist Li Tongzeng explained that anal swabs can “increase the detection rate of infected people” since virus traces stay longer in the anus.
Li further added:
“In some asymptomatic cases or in individuals with mild symptoms, they tend to recover from the illness very quickly. It’s possible that there will be no trace of the virus in their throat after three to five days.
“What we’ve found is that in some infected patients, the coronavirus survives for a longer period of time in their digestive tract or excrement than in their respiratory tract.”
So far, residents in Beijing neighborhoods with Covid-19 cases plus individuals in quarantine facilities have undergone anal swab testing.
Sample collection is performed by inserting the swab about 1.2 to 2 inches into the rectum and then rotated several times before being removed and placed in a sample container.
“Of course, anal swabs aren’t as convenient as throat swabs, so they’re only being used on individuals in key quarantine areas,” he said. ”This will reduce the return of false positives.”
