Nasal Swab as Preferred Clinical Specimen for COVID-19 Testing in Children.
Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2020 09; 39(9):e267-e270.PI

Abstract

The first pediatric study demonstrating significantly higher positivity rate of nasal (mid-turbinate) swab testing over oropharyngeal swab testing in detecting SARS-CoV-2 (Fisher exact test 0.046, Cohen K 0.43, confidence interval 95%, 0.014-0.855). Benefits might include lower collection-related hazard for healthcare workers. We recommend it as preferred choice for swab-based SARS-CoV-2 testing in children.
