Benefits of Regular Covid-19 Testing
Regular RT-PCR Covid testing saves lives
It is well known that “Precaution is always better than cure”. Regular and widespread Covid testing will not only prevent the spread of infection but will also be an effective means to get our lives back to normal. Testing allows us to identify people who are in need of assistance and isolating them at early stages will help reduce the chances of infecting others. Even if you do not show symptoms, it is necessary to take tests as it is known that nearly half of all Covid infections are spread by asymptomatic people and hence identifying people who are pre -symptomatic and asymptomatic will help save lives.
A simple swab test of saliva is all that is needed to check if you are positive or negative. A positive test will alert the individual and not only will they get treated faster, they will take steps to minimize the spread of the virus.
- The COVID-19 test result will help your healthcare provider to make informed decisions about you care and protection
- Being tested for COVID-19 will not only keep you safe but also people around you, such as family, friends.
Testing for Antibodies
Another important kind of test is that which detects if a person has been affected by the virus and is now immune to it. When tests show the presence of antibodies in the blood, it shows that the person is immune. More immune people increases the immunity of the population and protects the community as a whole . People who are immune can work in essential services such as health care and public safety.
