Covid 19 Testing

Covid - 19 Info And More

The World Health Organisation (WHO) was informed about a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown aetiology in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China on 31 December 2019. On the 7th of January 2020, a Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was identified as the causative virus by the Chinese authorities.

The Novel Coronavirus is formally named SARS-CoV-2. The disease caused by the virus is now referred to as COVID-19.


In asymptomatic individuals, a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR may be followed by a not detected/negative result on subsequent testing, even if the repeat test is performed after a short period of time. This is because there are a range of factors that may result in a not detected/negative test including the duration of viral shedding, individual immune response, vaccination status and sample quality. Drs AC Mauff and Partners practising as Lancet Laboratories takes no responsibility for any claims of whatsoever nature or any consequential losses relating to test results falling within the aforementioned category.
