How do I interpret my RT PCR results?

  • Positive RT PCR Results: A positive result indicates that you have an active COVID-19 infection. If tested positive, you must isolate yourself from your family until you test negative. You can either self-quarantine at home, or you can move to a COVID-19 care centre or hospital in Mumbai depending on the severity of your symptoms. The most important step you need to take is to consult an online general doctor in Mumbai and ask for follow-up medical advice. This includes the medications you need to take, dietary changes, and your recovery course.
  • Negative RT PCR Results: A negative test result indicates that you do not have a COVID-19 infection. However, a negative result should not stop you from following the COVID-19 safety instructions in Mumbai. Thus, continue social distancing and wear a mask when you leave the house.

Can an antibody test detect the COVID-19 virus?

There’s a common misconception that an antibody test can be used to determine the presence of an active COVID-19 infection. However, as the name suggests, an antibody test can only be used to check for antibodies you’ve developed for the infection. Unlike the COVID RTPCR test, the COVID-19 antibody test is not used for diagnostic purposes. However, if you know someone who was diagnosed with coronavirus disease in the recent past, it is recommended that they perform a COVID-19 antibody test to understand their immunity status against the infection.
