The PCR test measures the viral load i.e. how much virus is in your mucosal tissues and if the virus is still active.
The test, however, does not indicate whether you previously had the virus and have already cleared it.
The serological test measures your body’s antibody response i.e. immune response. This means whether or not your body has started fighting the virus. This test only tests positive 5-7 days after being infected, when the body mounts an immune response, however also continues to test positive once the virus has been cleared, thereby showing whether you have recovered, or were asymptomatic. covid testing houston

COVID-19 is a viral infection that is causing the current pandemic. A single person, even if asymptomatic, can infect several people. The virus is transmitted through respiratory droplets. Maintaining social distancing and wearing a mask can help prevent the spread of infection. The coronavirus affects different people in different ways. There are various symptoms associated with COVID-19. Most patients experience fever and a dry cough. Some notice a loss in taste and/or smell or a sore throat. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, fatigue, and body aches. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should get tested and self-quarantine for 14 days.
