PATHOLOGICAL-ANATOMIC DIAGNOSTICS OF CORONAVIRAL INFECTION CAUSED BY THE COVID-19 VIRUS. RESULTS OF THE APPLICATION OF MOLECULAR-GENETIC AND MORPHOLOGICAL METHODS
The effectiveness of therapeutic and epidemiological measures aimed at combating infectious diseases directly depends on timely and accurate etiological diagnosis. In the case of a new coronavirus infection COVID-19, identification of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the patient's biomaterial by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method is the main criterion for confirming a case of the disease, both in clinical and in pathological practice . In an epidemic, the use of medical information systems with the formation of network access to the results of medical, in particular, laboratory research, plays a significant role in ensuring the operational exchange of data and continuity between medical institutions when routing patients. In the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the solution of these tasks was implemented through the Unified Medical Information and Analytical System (UMIAS), which combined the results of laboratory and diagnostic tests conducted in various laboratories in Moscow in case of suspected coronavirus infection.
