• Overlapping Symptoms of Respiratory Infections and COVID-19: What You Need to Know

    Information provided by Quest Diagnostics

    We are facing a “twindemic”—two epidemics at the same time—as COVID-19 and influenza season are upon us in the Northern Hemisphere. Attempting to differentially diagnose and treat patients is complex. During this unprecedented time, it is important to know the epidemiology of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza, what the overlapping symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection and other respiratory infections are, and what respiratory infection molecular testing options are available to you.

    View this webinar, delivered by William Meyer, PhD, D(ABMM), MLS(ASCP)CM, to learn more about the considerations for respiratory infectious disease testing during the overlap of influenza season with the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, an update is provided on the national SARS-CoV-2 pandemic testing response, as well as the diagnostics options for respiratory infectious disease testing.
