Covid test negative but symptoms occur
My mother in law has all the symptoms of Covid 19 infection, fever, cough, cold, body ache, occasionally vomiting, acidity, loss of taste. But her Covid rapid test has come out to be negative. The rest of the family members are all positive. She got the test done at a government dispensary. Considering she has all the symptoms, we believe the test is not correct. Please suggest what to do as a precautionary measure?
