A detected test for COVID-19 generally confirms a correct diagnosis of COVID-19, but false-non detected results from all existing tests for COVID-19 have been documented.

It remains unclear the exact percentage of tests that produce false non detected results but reports by the HSE based on evidence from China proposes that this could be as high as 30%. The sensitivity of testing depends on the type of specimen obtained, the quality of the specimen, and the duration of illness at the time of testing.

The duration of the illness at the time of testing is crucial if initial testing is non detected, but if the suspicion for COVID-19 remains, it is suggested to repeat the test which decreases the chances of failing to identify infected individuals. The test will find the virus in the majority of people who have symptoms. But in some cases, like all tests, it may not pick up that you have the virus.

This newer COVID-19 test detects certain proteins that are part of the virus. Using a nasal swab to get a fluid sample, antigen tests can produce results in minutes. A positive antigen test result is considered very accurate, but there is an increased chance of false negative results — meaning it is possible to be infected with the virus but have negative antigen test results. Antigen tests are not as sensitive as molecular tests. Depending on the situation, the doctor may recommend a molecular test to confirm a negative antigen test result

These tests detect antibodies which the body generates in response to a prior COVID-19 infection. They do not detect a current active infection. If test results show that a patient sample has antibodies, it indicates that the subject is likely to have been infected with COVID-19 at some time in the past. It may also mean that you have some immunity. The WHO (World Health Organization) cautions that there is a lack of evidence on whether having antibodies means that a subject is protected against re-infection with COVID-19. The level of immunity and how long immunity lasts are not yet known. Ongoing studies will eventually reveal more data on this
