What is it the combined test PCR and Antigen?

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath feeling
  • Painful swallowing
  • Smell loss
  • Taste loss
  • Muscle soreness
  • Diarrhoea

When there are no symptoms but there was contact with a positive SARS-Cov-2 patient, or a situation that may generate doubts about being at risk of infection. It is recommended to perform PCR test at least two days after that contact or situation, because it is possible that during the first days the viral load is not high enough to detect it.

If it is positive the laboratory have to inform health authority, and have to contact the medical center to inform about the situation and follow protocols established by health authority.
