Suspected corona cases are tested in their cars - new rules on Sus


People who traveled to areas where the coronavirus ravaged, and who had weak symptoms, are now being tested in their cars following new guidelines from Skåne University Hospital. "These are patients who would not have sought care if they had not been in these areas, who had hardly any symptoms," says Maria Josephson, Head of Infectious Diseases and who leads the special staff at Sus who handles the virus.

After a week's sports leave, several skans have returned from vacations in northern Italy, which has recently had an increased number of cases of the corona virus.

This has led to an increasing number of people contacting the health service for testing, and now Sus has developed new guidelines.

- These are people who have not usually sought care for their symptoms, but who have been in affected areas and may have had a fever that has passed or similar. Then we have introduced that they are tested in their cars, says Maria Josephson.

More are being tested in less time

According to Maria Josephson, many of the people who have been living abroad are worried, and Sus wants to make sure that all people who can carry the virus are tested.

- As a main purpose, we want to reduce the risk of infection spreading, and then we also want to prevent a displacement effect - we have many who need to be tested who have been on holiday in northern Italy. This means that we can test more in less time, and should patients need medical assessment, we take them in and examine them.
