Are antibody tests are currently approved by the FDA as a diagnostic test for COVID-19?

They are not.

  • In the early days of an infection when the body’s immune response is still building, antibodies may not be detected, limiting the test’s effectiveness for diagnosing COVID-19.  There is also a risk of false positives with antibody testing.
