The coronavirus has infected over 27 million people in the world in only a few months. It’s important to stay informed as COVID-19 testing continues to be increased in many communities globally. But how does testing work?

To do a nasal swab test, a long Q-tip is inserted into one’s nostril. After collecting a sample of secretions from the back of the nose for analysis, lab specialists will try to find genetic material identifying SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus causing COVID-19). Swab tests for COVID-19 are rapid, affordable, and used worldwide today.

The process of getting tested can be quick and easy. At Ouch, we can help connect you with a nearby testing facility with convenience and comfort. Download the Ouch App now for your smartphone!
