Coronavirus Food and Drug Administration Roche Holding AG


Health and social care workers will be prioritised for new "incredibly important" coronavirus antibody tests and could receive them within weeks. Prof Jonathan Van-Tam, England's deputy chief medical officer, promised the tests that show if someone has previously had COVID-19 will be rolled out "rapidly". The blood tests by Swiss pharmaceutical firm Roche have been approved for widespread distribution in the UK by Public Health England, which has found they have an accuracy of 100%. What does 'staying alert' mean? They were cleared by Porton Down and should help indicate if a person has gained some degree of immunity against the virus, helping ease lockdown measures.

Coronavirus: Roche antibody test to be rolled out to health and social care staff 'within days and weeks'

Prof Van-Tam confirmed at the daily Downing Street coronavirus briefing: "I anticipate that it will be rapidly rolled out in the days and weeks to come - as soon as it is practical to do so. Advertisement "I also anticipate that the focus will be on the national health service and on carers in the first instance." Image: A finger prick is needed to complete the test He added "the chances of a false positive are extremely low with this test" so "this is a good test that will stand us in good stead moving forwards". Prof Van-Tam cautioned it could take up to 28 days after someone is infected before the test can properly confirm if a person did have the virus. It will "take time" to monitor how much people with antibodies have immunity from the virus and if they do, how long that immunity lasts for, he explained. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps also said the news the tests could be distributed soon was "very exciting" given they are "very, very reliable". They were heralded by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as being a "game-changer" for lifting lockdown because someone who finds out they have COVID-19 antibodies can be "safe and confident in the knowledge that you are most unlikely to get it again".:: Listen to the Daily podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Spreaker Downing Street has confirmed when the tests are rolled out they will "certainly" be available on the NHS. Asked on Thursday if those with antibodies could get "immunity passports", Mr Johnson's spokesman said the government was mulling the idea of health certificates. He said it was an "important breakthrough that we have a test that highly specific but work will continue" to check the length and level of immunity antibodies might offer. But a report prepared by the government's top scientific advisers sitting on the body SAGE warned if antibody tests come into widespread use some employers might start discriminating against those who haven't had the virus. "This might include not permitting those testing antibody negative to return to work, or only taking on new staff with antibody positive test results," a paper compiled on 13 April said. Roche says it can supply hundreds of thousands of the tests each week. They can be checked on fully-automated equipment already widely installed at NHS sites across the UK.

I'm not sure what to think about it. I think the idea that we can rely on the government to protect us from terrorists is fantastic. I think that the idea that we can rely on a private sector that is a little bit more cautious and a little bit more careful is fantastic. I think the idea that we can rely on the government to provide us with everything that we want and have it delivered at a time when we need it is fantastic

I've read a lot of those comments. I don't agree with them. Why? The big thing is, if you're going to be out there with a blood test, it's good practice to be able to interpret it. The big problem is, people are interpreting them as being positive for something too specific

NEARLY 3,000 people have died from exposure to asbestos in Ireland since it was banned in the 1960s. Figures obtained by the Irish Independent show that of the 1,224 deaths registered in the past 30 years, just over 3,000 are believed to have been linked to asbestos.

The analysis of the links between marijuana and schizophrenia is not clear. In particular, there is no consensus as to whether marijuana use is the cause of schizophrenia, or if it is a consequence of schizophrenia.

I think that our current test system has a lot of flaws. The greatest is what we call "blood typing." The blood test results are not reliable.
