Country on wheels — Coronavirus Detection in Your Car

With its strict lockdown policy, China has achieved remarkable success in controlling novel Coronavirus outbreaks, and now with the global outbreak of COVID-19, can other countries surely replicate China’s success? Each country has its own national conditions, different cultures, and different ways of life. “Copy homework”, probably not that copy. The following is a brief introduction to the detection of novel coronavirusDrive through (drive-thru).

As a “nation on wheels”, the United States often lives without cars. A lot of facilities in life provide convenience for drivers, are not to get off the car, can get off the car less for the guidelines and design. Drive-thru means that you can buy food at a restaurant, buy coffee at a coffee shop, withdraw money at a bank, or get medicine at a pharmacy without getting out of your car. Often all you have to do is Drive to the drive-thru aisle, talk into the human intercom and go to the other window to pay for the order. Such advantages are convenient, do not need to find parking space parking, from the trouble of getting on and off the car; Second, safety, especially at night, do not have to worry about fear, you can listen to the music on the driving seat to do things.

Now, with the spread of COVID-19, Drive Through is also being used to detect novel Coronavirus. Because COVID-19 is highly contagious, testing is not available at all FAMILY doctors’ offices or Urgent Care clinics, as is the case with influenza, and often requires some protective isolation. The emergency department is overcrowded and is not recommended for patients with mild illnesses. Thus, the result is Drive through detection of novel Coronavirus. In early March, when the number of cases in New York began to increase sharply, I signed up for volunteer service at a drive-thru detection station in the Bronx and participated in training activities for medical staff. Unfortunately, I was unable to go because I had to start working in the ward. The following is a brief introduction to the process of drive-Thru detection of novel Coronavirus. As comprehensive testing is not currently available in New York, patients often need to call the center for an appointment rather than a drop-in test. It is their professionals who must first screen to determine whether novel Coronavirus testing is required and whether drive-thru testing is appropriate. After making an appointment, drive to the test point during the appointment time. As soon as you enter the detection point, you will be prompted to close the window as the motorcade slowly moves forward. Check basic information including name, driver’s license, contact information, and so on before driving slowly to the testing tent. A doctor in protective clothing will gently insert a cotton swab into the nasal cavity to take a sample, then give instructions on how and when the results will be available and prompt to close the window and continue driving away from the test point. In general, the sampling process is quick, usually in a few minutes. On the one hand, a drive-Thru detection service can perform detection quickly and centrally due to resource concentration. On the other hand, potential patients do not need to go to clinics or hospitals, thus reducing public exposure and reducing the risk of transmission to others. New York City is now able to detect a significant increase in the number of cases per day since the city opened its first Drive-through testing site in New Rochelle on March 14, and with the development of New tests, including blood tests, it is hoped that testing will no longer be a bottleneck in combating COVID-19.
