Why is it important to test patients for antibodies to COVID-19?
Currently several methods are being used for Covid-19 like viral test or antibody test etc. An early detection cannot be done by anti-bodies methods as its take couple of weeks to generate in the body after an infection to cope with.
Some time Covid-19 patient does not show any symptoms as it is asymptomatic in lots of people and if they have or ever had Covid-19 in the past then anti-body test would be the best method, as it will show presence of anti-bodies in the patient as a result of viral infection. Such anti-bodies can be used as therapeutic agent through plasma therapy in active patients.
