What is the difference between COVID-19 PCR test, antigen test, and antibody test?
There are two kinds of tests available for COVID-19: viral tests and antibody tests. RT-PCR test and antigen test are both viral test which detects the presence of SAR-CoV-2 from upper respiratory samples. The RT-PCR test targets the genomic information of the virus (RNA); however, the COVID-19 antigen test kit detects pieces of proteins that make up the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The WHO recommends both RT-PCR tests and antigen tests for the diagnosis of active coronavirus infection. Please visit the US FDA page for more information about Coronavirus Testing Basics.

Sensitivity and Specificity are statistical measures of the performance of a binary classification test that are widely used in medicine.
Test measuring the portion of positives that are correctly identified (% of sick people who are correctly identified as having an illness)
Test measuring The portion of negatives that are correctly identified (% of healthy people who are critically identified as not having an illness)
Results of testing representing the portion of true positive results, from both true positive and true negative results in the selected sampling.
Accuracy rates are used over Efficacy rates due to describing something reaching its goal as part of the whole and it’s something which can be measured, while efficacy rates are more abstract.
