*Legal Terms and Conditions
- Essential characteristics of the service to be provided: Undertaking of the PCR or laboratory test for the diagnosis of the coronavirus – COVID-2019 (SARS-CoV-2). Molecular method based on the detection of the RNA of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by means of RT-PCR. At present, this is the leading technique for the diagnosis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the early stages of the disease. Molecular detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is very specific; therefore, a positive test result confirms the detection of the virus. A negative result does not always mean absence of the virus, as it depends on the viral load of the sample. If a negative result is obtained from a patient in which there is a high suspicion of infection by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, that result should be confirmed with a new test. A nasopharyngeal sample is taken; thus, it is not necessary to go to the test on an empty stomach.
