With flu-like symptoms similar to other common, respiratory infections it can be difficult to identify whether or not you and your family have been exposed to this novel virus. Some people develop serious complications, whilst many show no symptoms at all.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Currently, the official symptoms of COVID-19 include*:
- A high temperature above 37.5 degrees – this means that you are hot to touch on your chest or back
- New, continuous cough – this means coughing persistently for over an hour, 3 or more coughing fits in a 24 hour period, or an existing cough worsening
- Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you can’t smell or taste anything, or your ability to do so may be different to normal
*Please note that these symptoms may change as we learn more about the virus. The most up to date information can be found on the NHS website.
IS THE ABBOTT TEST SUITABLE FOR ME?
What tests are available for COVID-19?
There are currently two types of test that can be performed to determine whether or not people have been exposed to this virus:
This type of test looks for the virus itself and is used to determine if someone currently has COVID-19 and could transmit the infection to others. This test is currently provided for free by the NHS to anybody over the age of 5 who is showing symptoms.
Your immune system produces antibodies when it is fighting an infection. Serology testing detects these antibodies, within blood, which remain after you have recovered from an infection. This indicates if you have previously had COVID-19.
Is this COVID-19 Antibody test suitable for me?
If you think you may currently have COVID-19, you should follow the advice provided by the Government and the NHS. This test is only suitable for people who think they may have been previously exposed to the virus, but are not currently showing any symptoms.
If you have had symptoms within the last 14 days, or have been in contact with anybody who has within this time, you must wait for at least 14 days before coming for this test. This test searches for the antibodies created when your body has fought the virus and cannot detect the virus itself. Therefore the results will not be accurate if the COVID-19 virus is currently in your body. The NHS are providing free tests for those who think they may currently have the virus.
