Abstract

Utilizing 34 348 severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS CoV-2) nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) results from 2 health systems, we estimated the clinical sensitivity of a single SARS-CoV-2 NAAT. We found that SARS-CoV-2 NAAT has 82%-97% sensitivity for diagnosing coronavirus disease 2019 among symptomatic patients.
