Types of COVID-19 Testing: What You Need to Know

Quick Care Med Urgent Care

COVID-19 is an RNA virus, which is the genetic code of the virus. RNA is an unstable molecule that can replicate and mutate quickly depending on their need to survive, and they spread rapidly from person to person. Antibodies can inhibit these actions in RNA viruses and create a biological environment that prevents the replication of the virus altogether or makes it difficult to do so.

COVID-19 antibodies are proteins found in the blood that help to fight infection through immune function. Researchers have developed a precise antibody test for COVID-19. The blood test looks for specific antibodies that are fighting or fought the coronavirus, as opposed to the common cold or seasonal flu. Below is a chart explaining the differ types of tests.Types of COVID-19 Testing
