Covid-19 RT PCR Test
Overview of Covid-19 RT PCR Test Checkup
Covid-19 test is used to detect an active infection with the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), also known as COVID-19. It uses a technique known as real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). This test helps to detect the genetic material of the virus present in the sample (usually a throat or nasal swab). This is the most reliable and accurate test to diagnose COVID-19 infection.
If you have symptoms like cough, high fever, shortness of breath, respiratory and breathing difficulties, a history of international travel or contact with COVID-19 positive cases, book this test with prior consultation by a general physician. If tested positive, do not panic; self-isolate and get the right treatment.
If you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as sore throat, cough, fever, or other flu-like symptoms, take this test.
This test is also advisable if you have travelled to areas where COVID-19 prevalence is high or have been in contact with a COVID-positive person.
