Li Tongjeng, deputy director of a department of Beijing Yuan Hospital, said that research has shown that the corona virus is active for a much longer period of time in the anus (rectum and human faeces) than in the upper part of the body. Corona virus can remain in the throat for 3 to 5 days of the corona infected people who are not symptoms of the virus. Because of this, the result of the test comes negative many times but the person is positive. Lee said that the anal swab test is more effective, but this method is not as effective as the throttle test, so this method of testing will be used only in quarantine centers.
On the one hand, while some people are saying the anal test is more effective, on the other hand some experts do not believe so. Wuhan University deputy director Yang Zanchi says that the corona virus enters the body from the upper parts of the body, the risk of infection is greater than those parts, so the throttle and nasal test are still a better solution than the anal test. Yang said that there have been cases in which the corona virus has been found in the feces of the patient, but there is no strong evidence that the virus has entered the body from the person’s digestive system.
The Beijing administration will conduct a ceram anti-body test for all passengers who have entered Beijing’s borders after 10 December. This will help in finding the chain of new infection infection.
