Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

COVID-19 has a number of signs such as fever, cold, cough, body pain, and nausea, among others. However, there are chances of being infected even when there are no COVID symptoms. Keeping this in mind, it is advisable for individuals to get tested especially when they have come in contact with a COVID positive person.  

A COVID-infected individual may start showing corona symptoms within 1-14 days. This is known as the incubation period of COVID-19. Mild to moderate illness lasts for two weeks. On the other hand, it can take up to six weeks to recover. Due to the varying nature of COVID-19 signs in people across the world, it is recommended to get tested proactively and isolate as soon as any of the symptoms appear.

A rapid antigen test requires a nasal swab sample of the patient that is collected by a Max Lab technician. An RT-PCR test for COVID-19, on the other hand, requires a nasal and throat swab to get accurate results. Max Lab provides home collection services for both rapid antigen and RT-PCR tests at government mandated prices which are quite affordable.  

Of the two, RT-PCR tests provide a higher level of accuracy. An RT-PCR Test is recommended for people who need an instant report for travel or other purposes. This corona test detects specific proteins that are present in the COVID-19 virus. An RT-PCR test is conducted to check the presence of genetic material (RNA) in a patient’s immune system. Thus, an RT-PCR test provides a more comprehensive report of the viral infection.
