For home manage in the territorial context in which I work, the Covid19 patient is advised to have a thermometer and oximeter , possibly also check blood pressure and blood sugar (if previously monitored ).
The simple urinalysis is not mentioned: it is cheap and can be performed at home.
In fact, through a strip that is immersed in urine, after 1-2 minutes we can obtain about 10 parameters.
They indicate not only kidney damage (presence of proteins, red blood cells, white blood cells, nitrites for urinary infections) but also important systemic metabolic indices.
The values of pH, urinary density, glycosuria and ketonuria indicate whether metabolic decompensations, dehydration, etc. are in progress; finally, also bilirubin and urobilinogen, for what concerns the liver or eventual haemolytic anemia.
I say this because unfortunately Covid19 can also compromise not only the kidney system, as well as a series of complications with a sneaky onset, not always quickly diagnosed.
There remains the problem of the stripes packaging, not available individually, from which a single dose will have to be obtained.
But it is probably a problem that can be overcome
