Dr. Nikolas explained that besides immunity, there are other factors that can be used as indicators in detecting Covid-19, such as viral load.
Viral load refers to the amount of virus in the blood of an infected person. A high viral load in a person’s body can affect the immune system and organs such as the heart.
