When someone is infected with a Virus or any other infectious agent, their body’s immune system produces antibody to fight against the infection. Same goes with COVID-19 infection, which triggers our immune system to produce antibodies to fight against it. Now, these antibodies last in the body for several months to years. In line with this theory, detection of such antibodies gives you a clear picture of your current immune status.
The test is done as sero-surveillance, which is a reference to understand the spread of infection in a community by looking for antibody generation in an exposed individual. This test is not for Covid diagnosis purposes, The test identifies if a person has had the novel coronavirus at some point in the past and has produced the antibodies to fight it. The test kits and procedures have been approved by ICMR.
