Should We Get Covid-19 Antibody Test to Avoid Lock-down? - Virus 10

Machine to detect virus infection and measure antibody concentration in the blood 
(credit to Abbot)

As of previous post, we talked about method to half spreading of Covid-19 is better by lock down or physical (social) distant than herd immunity (Is Herd Immunity without Vaccine the Worst Strategy? - Virus 9).

We might intend to avoid “lock down or physical (social) distant” rule. How? Should We Get Covid-19 Antibody Test to Avoid Lock-down?

Antibody test also called as:
- immunity titer
- antibody titer
- serological test.

It is a test to measure IgG and IgM antibodies where they are detected in the blood after exposing to the virus, in this case SARS-CoV-2 virus.

IgM refers to antibody caused by recently infection, whereas IgG antibody is formed after 7 to 10 days infection. IgG antibody may include currently and past infections.

We have success to conduct similar titer tests to following communicable diseases:
- mumps
- rubella
- varicella
- measles
- hepatisis B

Moreover, New York state have recorded that 13.9% of 3,000 tested residents are positive for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.

What is it mean?

If this percentage hold to the whole nation, there are projected of 46 million of USA citizens have IgG and IgM antibodies to protect them from Covid-19 infection in the future.

These people may avoid stay at home order or even doing:
- normal job in the offices as usual.
- high risk jobs to take care Covid-19 patients
- customers services

Do you think antibody test is useful? Do you want to be tested?

  12. I don't know enough to really know. If you can't transmit the disease with antibodies, it sounds like a good idea, but if you can, then what good would it be?

  24. I'm not sure it's possible to test so many people here in the United States. I don't even think the numbers of how many have been infected and recovered/died are accurate. I think the best thing is just to have a vaccine and let life continue as usual. Hope they get a vaccine soon!
