Types of COVID-19 Tests

There are two types of tests that allow the detection of COVID-19 in patients. The most common one is the viral test, also known as PCR. It is used to detect viral DNA in samples taken from your nose or throat. The samples are taken using a swab, which resembles a long cotton bud and it usually takes 24 to 48 hours for the results to be ready.

The antibody test is less common and is used to find out if a person has had and recovered from COVID without being diagnosed. Only in specific cases will your doctor refer you to take this test.

What To Do After The Test?

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, you need to be isolated from others. Some people need to be hospitalized, while others with mild or no symptoms can be quarantined at home. Being quarantined means that they should not go out or meet anyone, risking to infect them. Your doctor will also ask you specific questions to trace the source of your infection and all the contacts that you might have infected.

If you test negative, it only means that you were healthy at the moment the sample was taken. But still, you need to keep complying with the safety measures—wash your hands, wear a mask, and stay six feet away from others. These easy steps will let you protect yourself, your family, and the lives of others.
