NOTICE REGARDING COVID ANTIBODY TESTING - Friday 5th June 2020
The practice is NOT presently in a position to offer the recently announced Covid antibody test.
The sensitivity of antibody tests is not yet clear: there are clear examples of people who were confirmed (through PCR testing) to have had Covid-19, but in whom the antibody tests remain negative.
It remains unknown if having antibodies for Covid19 will prevent reinfection.
It remains unknown if having antibodies prevents the ability to pass on the virus to others.
The quality and duration of immunity is not yet clear.
By the time the test becomes positive, the patient may no longer be infectious, so the test has little or no value in contact tracing and isolation.
