What is the nasopharyngeal swab and what does it measure

It is a diagnostic test that measures the possible presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (responsible for the coronavirus epidemic) in the upper airways in both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. Unlike the serological test, the throat swab also detects any contagiousness.

How it is done

The test is performed through a swab that painlessly takes small tissue samples of the nasal and / or oral mucosa. No preparation is required.
