Can I get the new Covid-19 antibody test?

  • Swiss firm Roche in talks with UK over antibody tests

The examination found Roche's serology test was "highly specific" and had an accuracy of 100%.

Some evidence suggests that antibodies develop soon after a coronavirus infection, but it is not clear whether that guarantees anything more than short-term immunity from reinfection.

Sources told the BBC the Roche test was the first one to offer serious potential.

It is hoped the test will become available to the wider public, although it is unclear whether this will be via the NHS or through commercial websites.

Until now, officials have said such tests are not reliable enough.

Sir John Bell, regius professor of medicine at Oxford University, described the test as a "major step forward".

No. The test must be analysed on big, expensive machines that hospital laboratories already have for running other Roche tests for different conditions.

But he said it was now unclear whether having Covid-19 gave immunity against all future infection with the virus.

"We are working closely with the NHS, public health bodies and the United Kingdom government to enable the roll out of our test across the United Kingdom as soon as possible", it said in a statement.

"All of that remains to be seen which just means that we need to evaluate and monitor these tests as carefully as we can". "Through that, you get a sense of how many people have been actually immune from wave one, and then we could match that up with a number of known cases we have", said Dr. Robert Strang.

Sawant also said, that he had urged the Prime Minister to find ways to restart mining in Goa, which has been non-operational ever since a Supreme Court ban in 2018. "We want to welcome the tourists post Covid-19 so an SOP should be decided", the chief minister said.

"We are delighted that devices are progressing through validation, and are actively working on our plans for rolling out antibody testing and will make announcements in due course", a Department of Health and Social Care spokesperson said.

But although it could determine whether someone had had the infection, it did not determine "for sure" whether they would be protected from the virus in future, he said. They are allowed to go home only when the tests are negative", the Chief Minister said in a video message.He requested people living in the border areas not to help residents of the state to enter secretly."This is my request.

"But because we didn't have that testing capacity at the time, it wasn't possible to do that".

The blood test detects antibodies in patients who have been exposed to the virus, even if they never developed symptoms.
