No insurance necessary—a simple finger stick is all it takes.
Antibody testing is used after an infection has occurred (usually 8–14 days after infection). There are 2 different kinds of antibodies—IgM and IgG. IgM is produced by your immune system as the body fights the virus. Later on, IgG antibodies are produced that confer longer term immunity. We do not yet know how long the IgG antibodies against the virus last.
What antibody testing can determine is:
Testing can provide you and your family with information to better plan for protective measures against re-infection and your risks to exposure either socially or at the workplace
COVID-19 is the name that is used for a novel (new) coronavirus that affects the respiratory system (the infection is referred to as SARS-CoV-2).
The virus infects the body in a manner similar to other coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV (from bats), and MERS-CoV (from camels). Symptoms may appear 2–14 days after exposure to the virus. People with the infection can experience fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, a loss of taste or smell, a sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea. Severe symptoms warranting immediate emergency medical care include, trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in the chest, confusion, an inability to stay awake, or bluish lips or face.
The infection can last from 2–6 weeks, although lingering effects can last for much longer. Some people however either have minimal symptoms or may be “asymptomatic,” or “without symptoms.”
Those who are most at risk are the elderly and people with co-existing medical conditions such as lung disease and diabetes. The infection can affect any age, however, and produce a wide range of illness from very mild to life threatening.
People who have recovered from the infection produce antibodies.
