The program said that the suspected case is that a person suffers from one or more of the following symptoms: –

The Walid Clinic program said: The suspected case includes a reserved patient with severe acute respiratory disease “sari” who suffers from a high temperature of more than 38 degrees, and a cough, with no other causes during the last 10 days from the date on which symptoms appeared.
The possible cases are a suspected case with any of the following conditions present within 14 days before symptoms appear.
The new definition clarified that a confirmed case is a suspected or potential case that has been laboratory confirmed to be infected with a pcr analysis with “Covid-19” infection, or by a “rapid antigen” analysis or what is called a “rapid test”.
The definition also included the diagnostic characteristics of corona infection according to the type of radiation used, whether plain or CT scans.
