When Should You Get Tested for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) ?

This may be somewhat confusing since the initial stage of COVID-19 infection is quite similar to that of the common flu. However, in most cases, the following symptoms tend to last longer than the common cold or fever:

  • Fever
  • Difficulties in breathing
  • Cough

Other clinical symptoms included in the list by the ICMR are:

  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Mucous formation and running nose
  • Muscle pain
  • Anosmia or loss of taste
  • Ageusia or loss of smell

What kind of TEST is Available for Coronavirus or COVID-19?

RT-PCR Test

  • As per ICMR guidelines, RT-PCR (Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction) based test is the recommended testing method followed for COVID-19 Testing.
  • A NASAL SWAB (Nasopharyngeal) and THROAT SWAB (Oropharyngeal) is collected for testing by taking due safety measures.
  • This is the Gold standard test for Detection of COVID-19. We offer this test across 20+ cities across India.

Antigen Testing

Nasal swab is taken as a sample and immersed in a solution which deactivates the virus. This solution is now put on a strip which is already impregnated with artificial antibodies against covid-19 virus. If the sample of patient contains antigens of Covid-19 virus, they will bind with the artificial antibodies present in the test strip and lines appear. The result is ready within 30 minutes. Since antigen detection does not require any type of amplification process hence time taken is very less but as the sample may not contain sufficient amount of viral load, the test may be False Negative. It does not require expensive machines or extensive training.

If the test is positive no other confirmation is needed. However, negative patients need to be confirmed by RT PCR testing. Advantage of this test is that it gives result in less than 15 minutes, and thus lowers the load for the RT PCR testing which takes much longer time.

Antibody Test [Serological Tests]

Blood of patient is taken who have recovered from Covid-19 infection, and contain antibodies against the virus. These antibodies may be IgG or IgM. IgG antibodies appear 10–14 days after infection and peak around 28 days after infection. Because antibodies appear late in the blood, hence their presence cannot be used as acute infection marker. However, their presence confirms that the patient has recovered from Covid-19 virus. These antibodies are used as Plasma therapy for seriously ill patients having Covid-19 infection.

Antibodies can be detected in the blood using ELISA technique [Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay]. A plate is coated with a viral antigen, which is a protein against the viral spikes.

Samples are incubated with the antigen. If blood sample of patient contains antibodies against the viral spikes, they will bind with the antigen and the antigen antibody complexes are detected in form of colored lines as appear in Home pregnancy test.

Antibody tests are useful to know whether the population has been exposed to the infective agent. It can screen a large population in a very short span of time.

TrueNAT Test

The samples used in this test are taken from nose or throat and dipped in a solution which deactivates the virus. The solution is then placed on a cartridge. This cartridge is inserted into a machine which extracts genetic material from the sample. This is followed by RT PCR. This purified genetic material is now added into a tube which contains RT PCR reagents. This solution is now applied to a microchip which is then put into another machine where reverse transcription and PCR takes place. Sample preparation in this test is automated hence results are available within half an hour. As this test is very quick and portable, it can be carried out in containment zones.

This is an indigenously developed test based on CB-NAAT Cartridge Based Nucleic Acid Amplification Test. This test was used to detect Tuberculosis.

How long does it take to get Covid-19 Test Results

The Reports generally take 24-36 hours for preparation, due to the current situation.
