I work for NHS, although not frontline. We have been offered the antibody test. I have never had any symptoms and wonder if it would be worth myself getting it.

We were offered it as part of a research project a few weeks ago. I know of at least one person who says they had no symptoms and tested positive for antibodies.

I had the antibody test yesterday and I’ve had no real symptoms. It’s worth it in terms of gathering data too about % of asymptomatic cases etc so it might be worth it for that reason alone. I’m pregnant and have been working from home since day 1 so seems extremely unlikely but who knows!

I think I read that Fergus Walsh the BBCs medical correspondent had one and was positive despite not having symptoms.

Ah I will have it; just wondered if I had no symptoms and had had it would I have antibodies but it seems I might.

I heard 40% are asymptomatic
