Simple question...

If a person is having symptoms, does this mean that antibodies should be present for a blood test?

Re: Simple question...

Hello,
Not necessarily, if they recently acquired the virus then the chances of the antibodies being detected could be low. It can take up to 4 months for them to be detected.
