Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Yes. There are several symptoms of coronavirus, including fever, cold, cough, body pain, and nausea. However, there have also been instances where people have tested positive, despite showing no symptoms of COVID-19. That is why it is advised that individuals undergo a rapid RT-PCR test for COVID-19, especially if they come in contact with someone who is COVID positive

A person infected by the COVID-19 virus may start showing symptoms of coronavirus within 1-14 days of exposure, which is known as the incubation period. Mild to moderate COVID-19 infections may last for up to two weeks. It may also take some people up to 6 weeks to recover. As some people show symptoms of coronavirus, while many others do not, it is recommended to opt for a rapid RT PCR test for COVID-19 proactively in case of suspected exposure and to isolate oneself as soon as any symptoms appear

The RT-PCR test for COVID-19 requires a throat and nasal swab for accurate results. A rapid antigen test on the other hand can be performed with a nasal swab alone. The swabs are collected by Max Lab technicians, and you can also avail home collection services for both the rapid antigen and RT PCR tests from Max Lab, at government mandated prices

Of the two types of tests for coronavirus, the RT-PCR test provides higher accuracy. People who need an instant report for travelling or any other purpose generally opt for an RT-PCR as well. The RT-PCR test detects specific proteins that are present in the COVID-19 virus and looks for the presence of RNA (genetic material) in the immune system. That is why, the RT-PCR, providing a more comprehensive report of the infection, is the more accurate type of corona test.
