The NIPD Genetics 4 Respiratory Viruses test is a molecular test performed using RT-PCR methodology that can simultaneously detect and differentiate between the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, the Influenza viruses A and B which cause the common flu, and the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) which causes RSV infections. Although these are distinct viruses, their symptoms are incredibly similar. Molecular testing is the only way to accurately identify whether a person has COVID-19, flu or RSV. This is critical both for effective and early treatment of each disease, and in controlling the spread of COVID-19 and limiting the effects of this pandemic.
Respiratory Viruses panels are available in several combinations. To take the test most appropriate for you select from the options below:
The upcoming flu and RSV season is going to coincide with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The shared similarities, in symptoms and disease transmission, between COVID-19, seasonal flu and RSV necessitate accurate diagnosis and differentiation between these diseases, which can only be achieved through testing. The NIPD Genetics 4 Respiratory Viruses test can detect and differentiate between SARS-CoV-2, Influenza A, Influenza B, and RSV, which can help so that:
People who experience symptoms associated with a respiratory infection (cough, sore throat, fever, etc.)
People who have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19
People travelling abroad or returning from overseas
People who are wondering if they have COVID-19
People who are anxious about their health
Register and complete the sample information form online or manually at one of our sample collection points
Drive to one of our collection points
A nurse will collect one nasopharyngeal sample
Samples are sent for testing to our accredited laboratory
You will receive your results within 72 hours
Different panel options are available and include testing only for COVID-19, Influenza, RSV, COVID-19 and Influenza, or Influenza and RSV.
High risk population groups for COVID-19, Influenza and RSV:
Adults of over 65 years old
People with compromised immune system, with chronic or with pre-existing conditions like asthma, diabetes and heart diseases
If you suspect that you have a respiratory viral infection that is consistent with the symptoms of COVID-19, flu or RSV, then you should get tested to know what precautions and treatment you should take. The ideal time to get tested would be 3 days after being potentially exposed to the virus, when the viral load is high in the system and can be detected, or at the onset of symptoms.
The test results will tell you whether you have an active infection of COVID-19, Influenza A, Influenza B, RSV, or if you are negative for all of these diseases. It is possible that you will be positive for a combination of these viruses, or even that you are simultaneously affected by all of them.
Accurate testing and detection can help in proper treatment for the flu, and in managing and controlling the spread of COVID-19, Influenza and RSV. Testing can also prevent another surge in COVID-19 cases, and in guiding medical treatment and patient care.
Inform your healthcare provider of your results, and follow their instructions and advice. Keep following all instructions and precautionary measures issued by the Ministry of Health, to protect your loved ones and communities, and control the spread of COVID-19.
