  • The swabs were submitted to thermolysis (15 µL of samples mixed with 45 µL of distilled water protocol: 98°C for 3′ and 4°C for 5′). Then, 5 µL were tested with the Allplex SARS-CoV-2 assay (Seegene, Seoul, South Korea) on the CFX Connect Real-Time PCR Detection System (Bio-rad, Hercules, California, USA) following manufacturer’s instructions.

  • The cycle threshold for E, RdPR and N genes are displayed.

  • ND, not detected.
