Why Should You Get the Coronavirus Antibody Test?
You may be wondering what the coronavirus antibody test near me is and how it differs from the standard coronavirus test — which is something we also offer at all of our Quality Urgent Care locations.
As the numbers and statistics continue to come in, it is becoming increasingly clear — according to medical experts, including the CDC — that asymptomatic transmission is one of the main contributors to the spread of coronavirus in the population. This means individuals could have the virus and not know it as they experience no symptoms whatsoever. With an antibody test, we can identify individuals who have already had the virus and have since recovered.
The test itself involves drawing a patient’s blood to examine it for specific antibodies. These antibodies are only present in those who have had coronavirus and recovered. With this information, some of the population can go back to normal everyday life without the risk of catching or spreading the virus.
