An optimized stepwise algorithm combining rapid antigen and RT-qPCR for screening of COVID-19 patients

Background & intention: We investigated the mixture of speedy antigen detection (RAD) and RT-qPCR assays in a stepwise process to optimize the detection of COVID-19. Strategies: From August 2020 to November 2020, 43,399 sufferers had been screened in our laboratory for COVID-19 diagnostic by RT-qPCR utilizing nasopharyngeal swab. General, 4,691 of the 43,399 had been discovered to…
