COVID-19 Antibody Test – What You Need to Know
According to the CDC, one of the main reasons COVID-19 has been transmitted so easily and quickly is because it is being spread by individuals who aren’t aware they even have the virus. These are known as asymptomatic cases. Unfortunately, the virus can be spread person-to-person through small droplets that are released from the mouth when someone speaks.
This is why it’s so difficult to pinpoint how many cases of coronavirus there really are in the U.S. specifically as we do not have blanket testing available as of now. Luckily, a COVID-19 antibody test near me can help. The test itself involves examining a small sample of someone’s blood to detect proteins in the immune system (known as antibodies). The presence of these antibodies are a clear indication that the person has had the virus and since recovered.
