Covid 19 - testing window

Can you test for the virus within the 14 day incubation period?

Dr Sashini Seeni 8 months
General Practitioner

Greetings!

Thank you for your question. It is possible to test for the virus during the incubation period. This is the pre-symptomatic phase where patients have yet to show any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19. The viral titre may be low if it’s too early in the development of the infection. The results may initially show as negative. Hence, repeated test may be needed.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you.
