Coronavirus disease is the infectious disease caused by SARS-Cov-2. It is transmitted via respiratory droplets that are exhaled by infected people through coughing, sneezing, or talking. It can also spread through contaminated surfaces.
The most important symptoms of Covid-19 are recent onset of any of the following:
A new continuous cough
A high temperature
A loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell
It is also possible to display no signs of infection at all, and you may be infectious without showing disease symptoms. This is what is known as being asymptomatic.
Why take a covid-19 antibody test?
An antibody test can tell you if it’s likely you’ve had Covid-19 before. It checks if your body has created antibodies to the virus or if these are from the vaccine, if you have been vaccinated. Some people prefer to know if they have antibodies as it makes them feel safer going out into the community. You may also require a test for work or travel purposes.
