The World Health Organization warns that a positive CoVid antibody test is not a “valid immunity passport” releasing you from distancing and use of PPE. Current antibody testing is not yet completely accurate, and many tests cannot quantitate antibody levels or types.
First, antibody-positive patients may have only low levels of viral neutralizing antibodies. Then too, viral immunity requires activated T-lymphocyte killer cells to destroy virus and virus-infected cells. Currently there are no tests that show if you have CoVid immune T lymphocytes.
So if you are tested and find that you do have antibodies, don’t get a false sense of security. It could be deadly!
