In this Nature article, published in September 2020, the potential of rapid antigen test is described. The article discusses how to use rapid antigen tests, how they work, and the difference between PCR. Again, in this article it is stated that the PCR method also detects people who are not likely to spread the virus. It is commonly assumed that the viral load peaks early in SARS-CoV-2 infections and then gradually declines, with tiny amounts of virus RNA staying in someone’s throat or nose for weeks or possibly months. Lastly, the authors speculate about the potential of using the rapid tests at home: “Testing should become a part of life: in the morning you take your cereals, your vitamins, and you quickly check your status”
