WHAT IS COVID-19 TEST?
SARS-COV-2 PCR (COVID-19) test is based on finding evidence of the virus using Nucleic Acid Amplifcation(NAA) technology.
This Technology allows for detection of even minute amounts of the virus.
It is estimated by different groups that due to sample collection limitations up 30% of the cases will be still missed (false negative).
HOW IS COVID-19 TESTING DONE?
Patient needs to submit a nasopharyngeal(NP) swab (sample collected from nose).
Sample collection occurs drive-thru in parking lot in order to minimize potential exposure.
