Antibody test for speedy detection of Covid-19: ICMR

Apr 03, 2020 19:40 IST

People living in Covid-19 hotspots or areas which have reported large numbers of cases may have to undergo a rapid antibody blood test for the viral infection to ensure speedy detection. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in its interim advisory has recommended the use of the rapid antibody test in the country's 20 existing and 22 potential COVID-19 hotspots as identified by the Health Ministry. The results of the antibody tests, similar to other blood tests, are available in 15-30 minutes.
