COVID-19 is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2. This virus belongs to the Coronaviridae family, in the Nidovirales order. COVID-19 disease needs to be clinically diagnosed and even though the rapid test devices are ofter described as COVID tests, these devices can not be considered to be a COVID test as its function can only measure the antibodies caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and neither can these kind of tests be used as a stand alone diagnostic device. Therefore can only act as a supplementary test.
