Shrutika Santosh Patkar, Sneha Balasaheb Shilwant


Abstract: Coronavirus disease basically caused by novel coronavirus emerged from Wuhan, china in December 2019. For decreasing the infection rate rapid, reliable diagnosis is need. Nasopharyngeal swab, sputum, saliva, other body fluid considered useful for COVID-19 detection. Currently nasopharyngeal swabbing, reverse transcription of extracted RNA, quantitative PCR are consider as major tests for detection of COVID-19. All these methods mentioned above have high risk of infection because trained staff are required. These methods also cause economic, logistic burden on health system. So the simple, less invasive, low risk method is require for detection. The non invasive method for specimen collection is saliva. The collection of saliva sample can be done by patient itself and this method is very economic and involve low risk of infection. The aim of these review is to analyses use of saliva for detection of COVID-19.
