What Are the Types of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Tests?

To check if someone is infected with coronavirus, health care providers look for pieces of the virus in a sample swab taken from inside a person's throat or nose. These tests can tell if the person is infected on the day of the test.

RT-PCR

Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction: Most tests to check for current SARS-CoV-2 infection rely on RT-PCR testing to detect the virus's RNA in a respiratory tract sample from a patient. PCR is a laboratory method used for making a very large number of copies of short sections of DNA from a very small sample of DNA so that it can be detected. This process is called "amplifying" the DNA.

Rapid Antigen Tests

These tests detect the viral proteins of SARS-CoV-2 in respiratory samples. The main advantages of antigen tests are that they can provide results in minutes, are simpler than RT-PCR tests to perform, and are sometimes used at the point of care, such as at a health clinic. However, they are not as sensitive as RT-PCR tests, so negative results do not rule out infection.

Blood Test for Antibodies

(Total, IgG, IgM) to SARS-CoV-2 (Serology): These tests detect antibodies produced by the body's immune system in response to SARS-CoV-2. COVID-19 serology tests can tell whether or not you have had the viral infection in the past. However, antibody tests are not the preferred tests to diagnose current infections. Antibodies don’t show up for about 1 to 2 weeks after you first become sick so antibody tests could miss some early infections.

Covid Monitor Profile/Covid Allied Test

Need for covid allied test

Almost miillions case of COVID-19 have been confirmed worldwide,resulting in large number of deaths.For such a high volume of patients presenting at hospitals and other health care centers, accurate diagnosis and efficient markers for disease outcome are key . Laboratory test biomarkers can play a useful role here.

These tests are required for monitoring the patient's health status throughout the course of the disease and are categoriesed day wise as the illness progress. These tests are required whether the patient in admitted to hospital or under home care.


Signs & symptoms and complications:

High fever, chills, cough, shortnes of breath, diarrhoea, fatigue, pneumonia, Complications such as heart failure, myocardial infaction, respiratory failure, thromboembolic events-(Stroke and limb ischemia), acute kidney injury, inflammatory syndrome.

Disease can present as acute viral pneumonia, acute lung damage, acute respiratory distress syndrome. The primary infection could be followed by hyperactive immune reaction which seems to underlie the severe manifestations of the disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. Because it is a new virus, scientists are learning more each day. Although most people who have COVID-19 have mild symptoms, COVID-19 can also cause severe illness and even death. Some groups, including older adults and people who have certain underlying medical conditions, are at increased risk of severe illness.

  • How does the virus spread?

    COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person to person, including between people who are physically near each other (within about 6 feet). People who are infected but do not show symptoms can also spread the virus to others. Cases of reinfection with COVID-19 have been reported but are rare. We are still learning about how the virus spreads and the severity of illness it causes.
    COVID-19 spreads very easily from person to person. How easily a virus spreads from person to person can vary. The virus that causes COVID-19 appears to spread more efficiently than influenza but not as efficiently as measles, which is among the most contagious viruses known to affect people.
    For more information about how COVID-19 spreads, visit the How COVID-19 Spreads page to learn how COVID-19 spreads and how to protect yourself.

  • What to do after testing positive?

    14 days of complete home isolation required.
    Two consecutive covid testings (24hrs apart) being negative after home isolation. call 1056 for more details.

  • Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected. Each health department determines community spread differently based on local conditions. For information on community spread in your area, please visit your local health department’s website.

  • People with COVID-19 have reported a wide range of symptoms – from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. If you have fever, cough, or other symptoms, you might have COVID-19.

  • Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately
    >> Trouble breathing
    >> Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
    >> New confusion
    >> Inability to wake or stay awake
    >> Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone
    *This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
    Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.

  • Yes. At-home testing and collection allow you to collect a specimen at home and either send it to a testing facility or preform the test at home.
    You and your healthcare provider might consider either an at-home collection kit or an at-home test if you have signs and symptoms of COVID-19 or if you can’t get testing at a local healthcare facility.
    For more information, Contact Us.

  • Yes, it is possible. You may test negative if the sample was collected early in your infection and test positive later during this illness. You could also be exposed to COVID-19 after the test and get infected then. Even if you test negative, you still should take steps to protect yourself and others. See Testing for Current Infection for more information.

  • Based on the available information to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low. See If You Have Pets for more information about pets and COVID-19.
    However, since animals can spread other diseases to people, it’s always a good idea to practice healthy habits around pets and other animals, such as washing your hands and maintaining good hygiene. For more information on the many benefits of pet ownership, as well as staying safe and healthy around animals including pets, livestock, and wildlife, visit CDC’s Healthy Pets, Healthy People website.

  • Community mitigation is a set of actions that people and communities can take to slow the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19. The goal of community mitigation in areas with local COVID-19 transmission is to slow its spread and to protect all individuals, especially those at increased risk for severe illness, while minimizing the negative impacts of these strategies.
