10,000 antibody testing kits arrive in Jersey

A delivery of 10,000 antibody testing kits has arrived in Jersey.

The tests can detect whether a patient has had Covid-19, and therefore whether they have evidence of immunity to it.

The kits still need to be tested for reliability, which will take seven to 10 days.

Once they have been confirmed as offering reliable results, they will start being used and further kits will be ordered as necessary.
