FAQs and information on Covid PCR Test
The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for Covid is a test that helps analyse whether a person is suffering from a Covid infection or not. The PCR Test for COVID-19 is so far considered to be the gold standard for the detection of the virus itself. It is a very reliable and authentic test and is popularly used to test people worldwide. The RT-PCR antigen test (Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction) is the standard gold method to quickly and accurately identify any traces of Coronavirus current infection in the body. This is the most common type of test used to prove that you are currently infected when travelling abroad. These tests require a swab, which can be self-administered or performed by a healthcare professional. These swabs are then sent to a specialised laboratory which can often return results in less than 24 hours. This test is a molecular test that works on the principle of detecting the RNA that causes Covid. It is performed by taking a nasopharyngeal swab inserted deep into the nasal cavity to collect the sample. The collected sample from the swab is then manipulated to extract its genetic material. If the sample contains the required genetic material (RNA), it is said to be a positive sample, and thus, the person is labelled as a Covid-positive patient. It is usually recommended that a person gets their PCR test done if they have developed any of the following symptoms: - Fever with chills - Cough - Congestion - Shortness of breath - Muscular or body aches - Loss of taste or smell - Diarrhoea - Nausea or vomiting.
