The Rapid Antigen Testing is the Covid test, which is simpler and can be performed easily and quickly using a nasal or throat swab.
An antigen test is quick – providing results in minutes. But it has a problem: It is much less sensitive than the PCR test.
A larger amount of virus is needed to be present for the test to be positive. This means that the antigen test can sometimes give a false negative, meaning that a negative result is not always reliable.
A positive result, suggesting that the virus is present, is normally reliable, although false positives are also more likely with this test than with the PCR test.
