- The human body produces antibodies called blood proteins to fight off the virus.
- The body continues making antibodies in case it encounters the virus again. So a person who has recovered from COVID-19 would have COVID-19 antibodies in their blood. A sample of blood can be tested for the presence of these antibodies. A person with antibodies to a virus means they may recover more quickly from an infection, or not get ill at all.
NOTE: A positive antibody test result does not guarantee protection from or immunity to COVID-19.
