In the event of Covid-19 infection, the body develops class IgG antibodies relatively early and their presence can be detected for the longest period of time. Therefore, the test for this antibody is considered to be a reliable element of having had a Covid-19 infection.

The importance of the test:

1. Covid-19 can be symptom-free(1).
2. If the body has encountered a virus, it can develop antibodies over time, even if the disease was symptom-free(2).
3. SARS-CoV-2 IgG test identifies the antibodies developed in the body of an infected person(3).
4. The identification of antibodies helps finding out whether the particular person has been in contact with Covid19(3).
