When do I need to do a COVID-19 PCR test?
You should conduct a COVID-19 PCR test if you have been exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 positive patient, or if you have symptoms such as cough, loss of taste or/and smell, headache, body pains etc within 2 weeks after suspected exposure to the virus. You should also do a test if you are traveling to a country or with an international airline that requires a PCR test. You can find up-to-date information about your airlines’ or destination country’s regulations here.
What do I do if my result turns out to be positive?
Confirmed positive cases are advised to isolate for 10-14 days, eat healthy meals, avoid smoking and drinking alcohol and seek proper care from Health Professionals. For mild to severe case, you can contact our isolation centre for out-patient and in-patient care via 08108248414.
What is an inconclusive COVID-19 PCR result?
An inconclusive COVID-19 PCR Result is neither positive or negative. It might indicate an error in sample collection or very early stage of infection. At LifeCentre Medical Services, we ensure that inconclusive results are communicated to clients and re-testing or resampling is done.
What is the difference between a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test, an Antibody test and a PCR test?
A COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test is a lateral flow test done to detect the presence of the COVID-19 antigen. A COVID-19 Antibody test is a serology test that detects the presence of antibodies produced by the body in response to a COVID-19 infection. A COVID-19 PCR test is the gold standard test which uses molecular studies to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
