Our doctor here in Portugal drew blood for current infection test.

I've been looking online for hours and can't get this info. All I get is nasal swabs for current and blood for antibodies.

Can a current infection show up in a blood test? Now I'm worried!

I guess you posted this in the wrong forum


The serological test will tell whether you have been infected but not if you still have an active infection. I believe it's cheaper than the Swab DNA testing and therefore it may be that s/he is not be concerned if you have an active infection.
