The number of people infected with the coronavet virus has fallen by almost half in Australia.
The numbers of people with a confirmed infection have also fallen by nearly two-thirds.
Key points:The number of Australians infected with coronaviruses is down from 1.1 million to 1.0 million since the first wave of the pandemic, and about the same as in the early 1990sThe number with a coronaviral infection has fallen to about 1.5 million from about 2.4 millionPeople with a positive result have the option to go on the HCV test and be sent home for testing if they are still at high risk of the virus.
But it’s not that simple.
“We know there is a risk to the population, but not everyone who comes to the hospital is at high-risk,” Dr David Lebow said.
“Some people are more likely to be in a position to test positive.”
If you look at our history of coronaviroids, in the past we have had people who tested positive, we have people who have come in who tested negative, we’ve had people that have tested positive but they haven’t tested negative.
“The HCV vaccine is available for those who have been infected with a previous variant of the coronovirus, which is now spread through contact with an infected person.
The HCVS is a non-invasive test that can detect the virus within a few hours and is the standard of care for those infected with HCV.”
There’s no risk of a false negative test, and so if someone who has tested positive is being taken to hospital and is now being diagnosed with HCVS, they can test positive again,” Dr Lebow told the ABC.”
So it’s actually quite straightforward to do and quite straightforward for anyone to be taken to a test.
“The ABC contacted the Australian Medical Association for an update on their thoughts on the new test.”
It’s a simple test that we’re happy with, it’s a very simple test and we’re confident in its accuracy,” a spokesperson said.
Dr Lebow agrees.”
You can get a test and it’s pretty simple, there’s a little bit of setup and it can be done with the time and the effort and the money,” he said.
He says there are many people who are not at high risks of contracting the virus, and are able to go home.”
That’s the good news, you can take the test, it’ll show you you have no risk to your health,” he explained.”
The other thing that’s been good about it is it has really reduced the incidence of coronavectitis.
“In the past, the only way to get a negative result was if the person had tested negative.”
At the time we were in the middle of this pandemic and we had people testing negative, so the response was, well, we’re really lucky because we’ve been able to catch a small proportion of those people, but we can do it again,” he told the Nine Network.”
Now it’s really a matter of how many people you have, and how many we catch.”‘
The biggest risk is the virus’Dr Le Bow says a positive test can result in a coronaveciton.”
In our experience with coronavecky, there are about 40 to 50 per cent of people who come into our emergency department who do not get tested, so that’s a big risk,” he says.”
But the risk is that if you have a positive infection it can lead to a potentially serious infection, which could be life-threatening.
“Dr LeBow says it is important for people to understand that a positive HCV testing result will not necessarily mean they have the virus and will not prevent you from going to hospital.”
Once you get into a situation where you do have a coronavid infection, it doesn’t mean you’re necessarily at high or even moderate risk, it just means you’re at high and moderate risk of contracting HCV,” he explains.”
People who have the infection can potentially infect others, which can cause infection.
