If the test is positive, the patient may be offered a full blood test to confirm the initial result. This blood sample will have to be carried out in a laboratory on the prescription of a doctor. This second test will be borne by the patient.
Results will be provided within 1–2 days. If the second test confirms the positive result, the patient will then be invited for a PCR test.
If the finger prick blood test is negative, this means that the patient has never come into contact with the virus. There is no further action to be taken, except to comply with general health guidelines (physical distancing, wearing a mask, hand hygiene, etc.).
