FANCY A BUM? The Anal Covid Swab Test is Coming

IF THINGS weren’t already bad enough, China – the Birthplace of the Coronavirus, has now ‘thrust’ upon the world the Anal Covid-19 test.

The test involves a swap of the rectum in which a cotton swab 3 to 5 centimetres (1.2 to 2.0 inch) into the anus and rotating it.

“There have been cases concerning the coronavirus testing positive in a patient’s excrement, but no evidence has suggested it had been transmitted through one’s digestive system,” Yang Zhanqiu, a pathologist at Wuhan University told Chinese newspaper Global Times.

Chinese residents are not happy with the new test and have expressed concern and disbeleif at the Anal test.

The Washington Post also reported that one Chinese citizen wrote on Weibo “It’s difficult for the nurses,” one person wrote on Weibo.

“We must really try hard to avoid catching coronavirus!!” said another.

Taking an anal swab could increase accuracy in key groups, Li noted during an interview with the China Central Television. (CCTV) However, given that the method is not as convenient as throat swabs, it will only be applied to key groups at quarantine centers.

Meanwhile, the testing method has been controversial among experts. Yang Zhanqiu, a deputy director of the pathogen biology department at Wuhan University, told the Global Times that since the virus has proven to be contracted via the upper respiratory tract rather than the digestive system, the most efficient tests are still nasal and throat swabs.
