Low Usefulness

Antigen Tests

Antigen testing can have meaningful “false-positive” rates. This means a higher percentage of patients testing negative may be positive. According to the CDC website dated 10/20/2020, “There are limited data to guide the use of rapid antigen tests as screening tests on asymptomatic persons to detect or exclude COVID-19, or to determine whether a previously confirmed case is still infectious.”

As a consequence, Crucial Care physicians-experts do not recommend this test at this time.

Antibody Tests

According to the CDC website dated 10/20/2020, “Antibody test results should not be used to diagnose someone with an active infection”.

As a consequence, Crucial Care physicians-experts do not recommend this test at this time.
