A bit about COVID-19 testing

The Virus

The causative agent, known as coronavirus, comes from a broad family of viruses.This latest Corona virus (CoV) is SARS-CoV-2, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2,the virus that causes COVID-19, the disease.Other coronaviruses are capable of causing illnesses ranging from the common coldto more severe diseases such as Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). The vast majority of people infected with SARS-CoV-2 will either be asymptomatic or, have extremely mild symptoms. The death rate is only 0.27% which means that only 27 people, on average, out of every 100,000 who get infected, will die.

In order to test for the disease COVID-19, there are two options:

1) Testing for current, ongoing infection – this entails a test of viral antigens to see if there are virus particles actively dividing in the body, within the cells. A sample is taken as a swab from the throat or nostrils to collect cells of the respiratory system. These are stored in a specific medium to prevent any death of tissue prior to testing. The samples are processed in a laboratory, viral RNA, if present, will be isolated and amplified in a process called the polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) which amplifies viral genetic material (RNA in this case, first converted to DNA) so that many copies are produced which can then be visualised by matching with known viral RNA sequences for this virus SARS-CoV-2. If no matching sequences are found, the person is deemed not to have an active infection.
2) Testing for past, recent infection – this entails a blood sample being taken to the laboratory. This is then tested in an ELISA test (Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay) to test for antibodies against the virus (SARS-CoV-2) causing COVID-19 disease. If antibodies are present in the blood, this indicates a recent infection in which the immune system has mounted an antibody response against the virus to help eliminate it. This test may not be effective if the infection was more than 14 days ago, since the antibody levels in the blood reduce to trace levels after an infection has been tackled and the virus is no longer present in the system. Also, an antibody response is not the main mechanism by which the body removes invading viral infections. The main mechanism is another arm of the specific immune system response called cytotoxic T cell response. This is currently not being tested for.
