What is the COVID-19 PCR Test?

COVID-19 PCR test is a molecular technique that is used to confirm the presence of the COVID virus. In COVID-19 PCR, a sample taken from the upper respiratory tract or nasal region is used to analyze the presence of the COVID-19 virus. 

In this PCR (Polymerase chain reaction), the viral RNA of the COVID virus is multiplied several times and converted into viral DNA. This viral DNA is then detected through PCR testing and the results are used to predict the presence of COVID infection.
