There is no specific answer to this but suspected cases should be screened for the virus with nucleic acid amplification tests (NAAT), such as RT-PCR.

If testing for COVID-19 is not yet available nationally, specimens should be referred. A list of WHO reference laboratories providing confirmatory testing for COVID-19 and shipment instructions are available.
