Important information: This is not like a typical MCH BLOOD TEST
Supporting statements towards more Antibody Testing:
The CDC said that it recommends providers use multiple antibody tests on patients, and it obtains the most accurate tests available.
The CDC said that the prevalence of those testing positive for antibodies among the general population is between 5 and 25, with higher figures coming from areas with localized outbreaks.
The FDA has also warned that all antibody tests can produce false results, and that “broad use of the tests, when not appropriately informed by other relevant information, such as clinical history or diagnostic test results, could identify too many false-positive individuals.”

Antibody Tests for past infections
An antibody test can show if you have previously been infected with the COVID-19 virus.
Antibody tests (also called serologic testing)
How is it POC done? A sample of blood is taken.
Where can you get these tests? At a doctor’s office, blood testing lab, or hospital.
What does the test look for? These blood tests identify antibodies that the body’s immune system has produced in response to the infection. While a serologic test cannot tell you if you have an infection now, it can accurately identify past infection.
What about accuracy?
Having an antibody test too early can lead to false negative results. That’s because it takes a week or two after infection for your immune system to produce antibodies. The reported rate of false negatives is 20%. However, the range of false negatives is from 0% to 30%, depending on the study and when in the course of infection the test is performed.

Rapid Decay of Anti–SARS-CoV-2 Antibodies in Persons with Mild Covid-19
*New England Journal of Medicine recent article suggested the rapid decay of anti–SARS-CoV-2 IgG in early infection,1 but the rate was not described in detail. We evaluated persons who had recovered from Covid-19 and referred themselves to our institution for observational research.
