The world is slowly returning to ‘normal’ when it comes to travelling, attending gatherings and restaurants and businesses opening their doors once more. However, South Africans are very much in the midst of our third wave and at risk of contracting the virus.
We understand the stress and inconvenience that needing a COVID-19 test brings, and we aim to make the experience as quick as possible while still providing the most reliable results.
COVID-19 testing in Sea Point at The Point:
Indalo Bio Genetics Lab offers an RT-PCR test for COVID-19 - a test used to diagnose and detect the genetic material of the Coronavirus. The test is also used for patients who were previously diagnosed with Covid-19. The PCR test is the "gold standard" of testing to diagnose COVID-19 because it's the most accurate and reliable test - results are available after only 24 hours!
Who should get tested?
The following people should get tested for COVID-19:
- Individuals who have symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested as quickly as possible. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of sense of smell, alteration of the sense of taste, fever, weakness, muscle pain or diarrhoea.
- Individuals who have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should also be tested at the earliest opportunity.
- Individuals who are in need of a test result prior to travel
Why would you get a rapid test?
People who suspect they have COVID-19 need to know whether they are infected immediately, so they can self-isolate, inform close contacts and receive treatment. Indalo Bio Lab's RT-PCR tests produce results in one day, which means people can take appropriate action more quickly and potentially reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Rapid tests are beneficial for those who urgently need to attend an event or catch a last-minute flight.
