How to take a swab sample

 Coronavirus? Check this on your own.


What is a RT-PCR test?

The purpose of RT-PCR is to detect the presence of a virus in a secretion taken from the throat or nasopharynx. A positive result for the presence of a virus indicates infection.

Molecular tests of throat or nasopharyngeal swab samples detect genetic material of a virus about two days before symptoms appear, during illness and convalescence.

If a virus is detected, it is necessary to follow the guidelines of the Poviat Sanitary and Epidemiological Station (Powiatowa Stacja Sanitarno-Epidemiologiczna, PSSE) that covers the area of your residence in order to report such a result and comply with further recommendations, including quarantine or a recommendation to stay at an infectious diseases hospital.

Please note that the result reflects only the state at the time when the sample was taken. One result can be negative, and after a dozen or so hours the next one can be positive. This is related to the amount of virus and the ability to detect its presence by this method. The result must always be consulted with the doctor and PSSE in the context of the clinical condition of each examined patient (symptoms, contacts with other people).

According to the recommendations issued by the World Health Organisation, this is the only test recommended by the Medical Department of DMC to determine the current presence of SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) and widely used in Poland by sanitary and epidemiological services.
