Took a Test was negative which I am so happy about. But my exposure was only 4 weeks ago. What percentage would it be that my test is correct? Thanks!!!

Hi Help!!! Thanks for getting in touch. Only around 50% of people will have created enough of the right types of antibody that is detected by the test after 28 days. So your test result is encouraging but, I'm afraid can't be conclusive. To be certain you would need to test again after 12 weeks post the possible exposure. I'm sorry that I can't provide you with a higher level of certainty. Please get in touch again if you require any further help or information. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
