An antibody test 9, or "serological test", is designed to detect if a person has had coronavirus before (symptomatic or asymptomatic) and recovered from COVID-19. Compared to the testing that determines if you have coronavirus at the time of the test, this test is relatively easy to perform. A device pricks a person’s finger to get a blood sample, which is then placed on a kit assembly, works by testing your blood for coronavirus (COVID-19) antibodies to see if they have already have had the virus and now have developed immunity to it. The antibody test has been determined to be 98.6% accurate in testing by Abingdon Health, a UK medical research facility.
