Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Have you being tested positive for COVID19?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No.

So why you want an antibody test ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you have read my original message you will know.

Antibody testing can only be done in those who have a confirmed infection

Since you have never being a confirmed case of Corona infection so doing antibody test will not be of any help

If it came back negative so there is a chance that you never had a corona infection

So I don,t think there is a need to do an antibody test

You can ask your GP as well to take a second opinion

Please do let me know if you have any other question
