The UK will conduct antibody tests this week
Hello and welcome to today’s global coronavirus coverage.
People in the UK will be able to receive Covid-19 antibody tests for the first time next week as part of a new government programme.
From Tuesday, anyone aged 18 or over in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland will be able to register for the program when receiving a PCR test, Sky News reports. Up to 8000 people will be able to participate in the scheme.
The results will be used to monitor antibody levels in cases of coronavirus, as those who tested positive sent two finger-prick antibody tests that measured their bodies’ response to different virus variants. The first should be taken immediately after a positive result, while the second should be taken after 28 days.
It will be the first time antibody tests have been offered to the general public, and comes amid discussions about the rollout of the third dose of the vaccine in the UK. Some experts said more time was needed to decide if it was needed.
