What's a coronagraph?
There are several types of coronate tests that can indicate whether you are infected with the coronavirus, such as a antigen rapid test and a PCR test. An antigen rapid test gives the result within 30 minutes, so you know immediately if you are infected with the virus at that moment. The result of a PCR test takes a little longer (max. 24 hours), but is more accurate. Moreover, with the PCR test you get an international travel certificate, which is a requirement for entering many countries. With an antigen rapid test you get another kind of certificate, which is often not suitable to travel with.
