British to Have Millions of Wuhan Virus Antibody Tests Expected to Arrive in the UK Within Weeks
From City AM:
Millions of tests that can detect if someone has ever had coronavirus will arrive in the UK in the coming weeks, according to the housing and communities secretary.
The antibody tests, which have been described by Boris Johnson as a “gamechanger, could allow people to return to their everyday lives.
The test can see if someone has certain types of antibodies, which are created in the body to fight infection, in their bloodstream and have therefore contracted the virus.
It is thought that once someone has contracted Covid-19 that they will build up an immunity against the virus.
