I went for a blood test this morning and was asked would I like an extra sample taken as an anti body test??? not having had the covid I wouldn't build up any antibody's surely, maybe just an excuse to get the prescribed amount of tests done at the behest of the government

Asymptomatic COVID is enough of a concern that the frontline Staff at my place get regularly tested for it. Regardless of any political impetus, it's good idea just in case you happen to be lucky enough to have some of the raw ingredients for a vaccine inside of you :B

I haven't got a problem with it, just wondering why I would be given an antibody test not having had the virus, being in the high risk , I probably would have snuffed it had I have been infected, and as the government appear to be more interested in the quota of tests done rather than the reasons, is it to boost public confidence that they have everything under control, another U turn coming soon near you.

I went for blood test for something else on Friday and I asked for an antibody test because I was convinced I'd had it before December. Surprised to receive the text that same afternoon , it was negative. I was quite disappointed because I would have felt a little safer if I had antibodies and as I say I was really convinced I'd had it.

Everything is not a government conspiracy casper. Many people have had the virus with no symptons or very insignificant symptons, and just because you are in the high risk category doesn't mean you will get severe symptons.
Getting the antibody test will just be for peace of mind.

I'am not implying there is a conspiracy conspiracy is a strong word perhaps the thought crossed your mind, I am talking about the governments obsession with figures, they give a figure that so many tests will be carried out by such and such a date, or the schools will return in September, and everything must fit into that timeline regardless, even if it means manipulating the system to appear they have control, perhaps if they provided more information people would understand what was happening, as it is various sub organisations, GP's, dentists. opticians, etc have to keep seeking information to enable them to carry out their own arrangements, so anyway I can expect to be told that I have had / not had covid for my peace of mind, lets wait and see.

Just an addendum to my previous post, an antibody test is only good within a fortnight of having the virus.

Have you had a text to tell you the result of your antibodies test yet Casper? I was very surprised when within a few hours of having blood taken result came through It seemed very quick to me.. I thought antibodies stayed in your system for an undertermined time so why is it only good for two weeks?

They are at a maximum just after the disease then they fade away to a very small amount, the quicker tests can only detect them when there are a lot still floating around your system.

The Commons Home Affairs Select Committee and the Public Accounts Committee are both finding significant mishandling of the Covid response by the Government.

I suspect there will be more committees raising points soon.

Will it make any difference? I doubt it, the same people will keep on making blatant mistakes on a near daily basis.
