Physicians develop test to predict mild or severe COVID-19 symptoms
Doctors treating coronavirus patients have seen symptoms range from mild to severe, or in some cases completely asymptomatic. But what if there was a test to determine how sick a particular patient would get from the virus? Dr. Mehta, a pediatric gastroenterologist at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, is leading the team of researchers. So far tests from the data collected have isolated mild cases from those that are moderate or severe, just as predicted. Dr. Mehta said he hoped the test will be more available in six to nine months.
