  14. Tests Available for Covid19:
    • Viral tests [to find out if you have a current infection – when you get exposed to COVID-19, it starts replicating in your upper respiratory tract. And the more coronavirus there is, the easier it is to detect. The plateau occurs pretty early on, within a few days of showing symptoms. But if you test earlier than that, the results aren’t nearly as reliable.].
    • Antibody tests [to find out you if you had a previous infection – it can take 1–3 weeks for your body to make antibodies.].
