The Virus

In late December 2019, a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown cause was reported by health authorities in Wuhan, China. A subsequent investigation, launched in early January 2020, identified a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) as the infectious agent responsible. This coronavirus is thought to be zoonotic in origin.

Typical symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. In rare but severe cases, the disease can progress to pneumonia, multiple organ failure, and death. The elderly, and those with underlying health conditions (such as heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes) are most at risk of developing serious illness.

Wondering if you have contracted the Corona Virus in the past?

Get COVID tested by our pharmacist in the safe CQC premises of Hope Medical. The COVID-19 Rapid Test detects IgM and IgG antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in human whole blood, serum and plasma specimens.

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is the most common antibody. It’s in blood and other body fluids, and protects against bacterial and viral infections. IgG can take time to form after an infection or immunization.

Immunoglobulin M (IgM) is found mainly in blood and lymph fluid, this is the first antibody the body makes when it fights a new infection.

Procured by a reputable pharmaceutical company, the COVID-19 Rapid Test was compared with PCR and as shown the accuracy is above 90% for both IgM and IgG(More information on the comparative testing can be provided on request)

It is important to note that the COVID19 antibody test identifies if the body has developed an antibody response to a COVID19 infection. The test is not a viral test to identify if there is a current infection.

Results are available within 10 minutes and tests are only £49.99 each.
