Individuals at Risk
Chlamydia Pneumonia affects people of all ages and spreads quickly in crowded areas. School-aged children and people in hospitals have a significant risk of infection. Older adults are at higher risk of reinfection and developing more severe symptoms.
Methods of Infection
Chlamydia Pneumonia is spread through respiratory excretions and commonly spread through households with how long it takes to develop symptoms. Symptoms may take around 3-4 weeks after the initial infection to appear and can last for several weeks.
Milder cases can recover without medical intervention and antibiotics can be used to treat the illness however, if symptoms become too severe medical attention becomes necessary.
Chlamydia Pneumonia testing is offered at Solaris Diagnostics as part of the respiratory panel in which RT-PCR techniques are utilized to detect the presence of viral pathogens.
