Wonder if you have you had Covid-19?
The highly accurate antibody test that can show if you have previously been infected.
When should I have the antibody test?
The antibody test should be performed at least 2 weeks following symptoms or suspected exposure to coronavirus. This period allows time for the antibodies to be formed. If you are symptomatic or it is less than 2 weeks since you had symptoms the PCR test may be more suitable. The antibody test can show if you have ever been infected with SARS-CoV-2.
