Infectionist calls coronavirus antibody tests a waste of money
Earlier, an infectious disease specialist and vaccinologist, the head physician of the Leader-Medicine medical center, Evgeny Timakov, spoke about the ways in which you can test yourself for coronavirus. According to him, if a person has recently been in contact with a patient and begins to fall ill, it is necessary to do a PCR test. At the same time, it is pointless to donate blood for antibodies at first, since they begin to form on the seventh or tenth day of the illness.
