Minimising primary care professionals' (PCPs) risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection is crucial to ensure their safety as well as functioning health care system. PCPs' perspectives on the support they needed in the early stages of a public health crisis can inform future preparedness. The goal of this study is to understand PCPs' experiences of providing care during the COVID-19 pandemic, with focus on personal risk from COVID-19 and testing.
The current study evaluates a testing algorithm for the rapid identification of SARS-CoV-2 variants that includes the use of PCR-based targeted Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) detection assays preceded by a multiplex PCR sensitive to s-Gene Target Failure (SGTF).
