Benefits of having a SARS-CoV-2 antigen test available

  • SARS-CoV-2 virus causes respiratory tract infection
  • Transmitted mainly via respiratory droplets after close contact, and primary viral replication is presumed to occur in mucosal epithelium of the upper respiratory tract (nasal cavity and pharynx)
  • Viral load peaks within the first week after symptom onset, and then declines
  • A SARS-CoV-2 antigen test detects the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from part of the upper respiratory tract swab specimens by identifying a nucleoprotein that is carried by the virus
  • The test identifies current infection during the acute phase of COVID-19, while the virus is still present in large quantities in the respiratory tract
