Proposal of Research Model for the Detection of COVID-19 among Asymptomatic Carriers

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol

International Archives of Otorhinolaryngology

Proposal of Research Model for the Detection of COVID-19 among Asymptomatic CarriersCoronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a pandemic and rapidly progressing infectious disease that represents a global health care emergency due to severe acute respiratory syndrome. Rapid tests detect antigen or antibody presence, which is useful for patient care and for assisting in disease surveillance and epidemiological research. The complicating aspect of the COVID-19 spread may be due to asymptomatic individuals. Unfortunately, asymptomatic individuals are not detected in the early stages of infection, which could help to prevent community spread. The present paper shares an opinion through the proposal of a research model for detecting COVID-19 among asymptomatic carriers.
