A qRT-PCR test is a quantitative test and measures the level of virus.
PCR is the safest way to assess the presence of viruses.
The regular PCR test result is an international travel certificate in English signed by a licensed physician. We also issue EU-Covid certificates in connection with the medical certificate for EU citizens and this can be collected via Kivra or a transcript at our clinic.
