Q: What is the difference between the rapid test and the RT-PCR test?
A: The rapid test detects nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 virus, while the RT-PCR test detects nucleic acid from the virus. In other words, the RT-PCR test detects viral DNA and the rapid test detects viral protein.
