Generally, the word coronavirus describes any virus that originates from an animal. In the case of the 2019 novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, it is a new coronavirus strain that was first discovered in Wuhan, China, in December of 2019. Coronaviruses typically cause a respiratory infection in humans. Other notable coronaviruses include SARS-CoV (severe acute respiratory syndrome-associated coronavirus), which caused an epidemic in 2002 in Toronto, Canada, and MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus), which caused an outbreak in 2012 across the Middle East.
COVID-19 spreads from person-to-person through liquid respiratory droplets released when a person coughs, sneezes, talks, or sings. When someone is in close contact with an infected individual, within approximately six feet, these liquid droplets can allow COVID-19 to enter that person’s body through their eyes, nose, or throat. COVID-19 spreads quickly when large groups of people are assembled together.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, dry cough, and fatigue. However, there is quite a broad range of symptoms associated with COVID-19, including the following:
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, we encourage you to come to get tested at AFC Urgent Care! You can find our clinic at 934 Montgomery Avenue in Narberth, Pennsylvania.
We offer a rapid test because they provide highly reliable results on the spot; however, they do produce more false negatives than the RT-PCR COVID-19 Test. Doing both tests is our way of ensuring that you get the most accurate results possible without having to put your life on hold.
We're able to get many patients in and out in a matter of minutes, but the length of time you'll spend in our clinic will depend on wait times that day.
That will ultimately depend on your insurance coverage. Presently, many people with insurance are able to get tested at no charge. If you’re uninsured, AFC’s cash pay prices are highly competitive – contact us for the details.
