This session will begin with the pathogenesis and epidemiology of the SARs-CoV-2 virus and the laboratory response—or the limited response and the testing that was available. As the virus progressed globally, laboratory tests were identified that provided tools to aid in the prognosis of COVID-19. An overview of these laboratory tests will be presented. The final part will look at testing algorithms as well as lessons the laboratory has learned during this pandemic.
- Identify characteristics of the SARs-CoV-2 virus
- Describe laboratory testing that directly tests for COVID-19 as well as tests that support the diagnosis
- Discuss the evolving nature of the diagnosis and treatment of this disease
