I had the first routine Full Blood Test IN TWO YEARS recently but it did not include an antibody test – so this statement is a wild exaggeration.

Antibody test to check if you’ve had coronavirus

An antibody test is a blood test to check if you’ve had coronavirus (COVID-19) before. This test is not widely available yet.———————————————————————————————————————–

Half of UK population now have antibodies against Covid-19, new data from govt stats agency shows
Around half of all people in the UK have developed antibodies to fight Covid-19, according to new data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), due to either inoculation or prior illness with the coronavirus.

Blood samples have revealed that by the week ending March 14, 54.7% of England’s population had developed antibodies, suggesting they have been infected or vaccinated.

In Wales the figure was 50.5%, Northern Ireland, 49.3%, and Scotland, 42.6%, the ONS said in its infection survey report, published on Tuesday.

Despite lower rates among some groups, the ONS said: “Across all four countries of the UK there is a clear pattern between vaccination and testing positive for Covid-19 antibodies.”

Regional variations for antibody levels across England showed a high of 60.0% in the north west, compared to 50.3% in the south east.

ALSO ON RT.COMLondon has no plans to share Covid vaccines with Republic of Ireland, PM’s office says despite reportsMore than 30.6 million people in the UK have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine to date, while over 3.8 million have had their second dose, according to government data.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the government aims to vaccinate all the over-50s and those with existing medical conditions by mid-April, and all adults by the end of July.

According to the government’s lockdown exit plan for England, non-essential retail – including outdoor hospitality – will be allowed to reopen from April 12, with all social contact restrictions to be lifted from June 21.

The UK’s Covid-19 incidence rate was 56 per 100,000 people as of Tuesday, while the number of people testing positive in the last week has decreased by 7.9% on the previous seven days.
