CRP is an important marker in the prediagnostics and treatment follow up of the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV).
Situation update and how CRP is used
C-reactive protein (CRP) is one of the key markers needed to diagnose and follow up the treatment of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). In practice, every single patient that comes to the fever clinics/hospitals with fever and other suspected symptoms will be first checked with CRP and whole blood cell count. These routine tests help to identify a common cold from this more severe new virus infection. Further chest imaging and nucleic acid test are used to confirm the coronavirus infection. During the treatment, C-reactive protein (CRP) is also monitored together with other biochemical markers throughout the whole treatment and recovery process.
