No test is a 100% accurate. However this test has value as an indication that this donor has had Covid-19 and now has produced antibodies which it is assumed has given them immunity.
They are therefore safe to return to the wider community and the workplace.
We believe that this "fit for work" test will be vital in getting the UK economy back on track.

How to test
Posted: March 17, 2020
The Covid-19 Antibody test detects and measures two specific Covid-19 antibodies, IgM and IgG. The presence of IgM typically indicates that a normal human immune system is fighting the virus.
The other antibody Covid-19 IgG is expected to be present in the blood of an individual who has had the disease and has recovered. IgG simplistically, is the body's defence mechanism to prevent future attacks from the virus.
Note, the the test is NOT detecting the virus, it is detecting the bodies response to the virus.
A person who has not been infected by the Covid-19 virus, will not have either IgM or IgG in their immume systems. In this case they would be negative for both antibodies.

CBD Products can lead to drug test postives in urine samples.
In many high street Cannabidiol products there is sufficient THC to result in urine positive drug test results.
Most urine drug tests for Cannabis use THC-COOH as the calibrant. That is, the concentration of THC-COOH is the compound that determines the pass/fail result.
