Our expert says:
Jay, there is a theoretical possibility of becoming infected – practically it is probably nil. There are different types of tests you can do. A PCR test is more than 90% sensitive after 5 days and will give a definite result after 14 days. 4th generation ELISA tests are positive within 3-4 weeks and a follow up after 3-6 months
will give a definite result. The PCR test is about R600 and an ELISA test about R100. Good luck.
