The diagnosis of infection by COVID-19 is based on the clinical history, radiological tests and analytical tests. Thanks to the PCR technique we can confirm if there is any presence of the virus in the RNA. The presence of antibodies, IgG and IgM, provide information about the evolutionary state of the infection and allow you to know your immune status against COVID-19.
