At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a lack of the COVID-19 test kit. Although the COVID-19 test kit eventually increased, shortages continued to occur as regional demand increased.

1. Who should consider testing for COVID-19?


If you think you are seriously ill, seek medical attention from a health care professional immediately. If you feel like you have a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1.


Signs of serious illness include, but are not limited to severe shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, coughing up blood, chest pain, arrhythmia, persistent vomiting, or diarrhea.


However, if you are in poor health. One of the many ideas to meet diagnostic needs is to get the COVID-19 test kit and have a test.


2. Test method of the COVID-19 test kit


There are two main types of COVID-19 test kit: molecular COVID-19 test kit, antigen COVID-19 test kit.


l Molecular COVID-19 test kit


This test method is considered the most sensitive to detect active infections and the results are highly accurate.


In most cases, there is a special cotton swab inside the COVID-19 test kit. The health care provider will use the cotton swab to collect mucus from your nose or throat (Some molecular tests now use saliva, and people may feel more comfortable).


Molecular detection is commonly known as PCR, short for a polymerase chain reaction, a laboratory technique used to detect viral genetic material. The turnaround time can range from a few minutes to a few days or more, depending on whether samples are analyzed in the field or sent to an external laboratory.


l Antigen COVID-19 test kit


This diagnostic test is often called a "quick test" because the turnaround time is much faster than the RNA test. It's also cheaper to produce.


From the patient's point of view, antigen detection works basically the same as molecular detection. Your healthcare provider will wipe your nose or throat to collect a sample for testing by using the COVID-19 test kit. But instead of waiting days, an antigen test can produce a result in an hour or less. If you test positive, you're probably right: the antigen test is very accurate. The problem is that these tests are more likely to miss active infections. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 but test negative, your doctor may order a molecular test to rule out a false negative.


Some antigen testing can be done directly at your healthcare provider's office, which means you don't have to go to the lab to get tested.
