RT PCR Test : Procedure & Test Results

What is the COVID-19 RT PCR test?

The RT PCR test is a diagnostic procedure used to determine the presence of the virus causing COVID-19. (Sars -Cov-2) Being highly accurate, it is considered to be one of the most reliable methods to detect an active coronavirus infection. During the procedure, the lab technician uses a sterile swab to carefully collect the contents from inside your throat or nose. Once collected, they are sent to a lab in your locality for a detailed analysis.

While the COVID-19 RT PCR test is MedKare’s most popular health assessment considering the ongoing pandemic situation, MedKare also offers a variety of other health packages like full body checkthyroid profilevitamin profileallergy assessmentdiabetes screening etc. In addition, you can refer to MedKare’s top medical guides, a repository containing in-depth and useful information on various health and medical conditions like how to stop loose motionhow to increase blood pressure and wellness information such as importance of weaninghow to reduce belly fat after c sectiondiet for PCODweight loss diet plan charthow to detoxify bodyGM diet plan and much more.

How do I interpret my RT PCR results?

  1. Positive RT PCR Results: A positive result indicates that you have an active COVID-19 infection. If tested positive, you must isolate yourself from your family until you test negative. You can either self-quarantine at home, or you can move to a COVID-19 care centre or hospital depending on the severity of your symptoms. The most important step you need to take is to consult an online general doctor  and ask for follow-up medical advice. This includes the medications you need to take, dietary changes, and your recovery course.
  2. Negative RT PCR Results: A negative test result indicates that you do not have a COVID-19 infection. However, a negative result should not stop you from following the COVID-19 safety instructions. Thus, continue social distancing and wear a mask when you leave the house.

Can an antibody test detect the COVID-19 virus?

There’s a common misconception that an antibody test can be used to determine the presence of an active COVID-19 infection. However, as the name suggests, an antibody test can only be used to check for antibodies you’ve developed for the infection. Unlike the COVID RTPCR test, the COVID-19 antibody test is not used for diagnostic purposes. However, if you know someone who was diagnosed with coronavirus disease in the recent past, it is recommended that they perform a COVID-19 antibody test to understand their immunity status against the infection.
