Govt releases antibody tests for medics

Coronavirus antibody tests will be available on the NHS following agreements between the government and pharmaceutical firms Roche and Abbott.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the government has signed contracts to supply 10 million antibody tests, which will show if someone has had COVID-19 and potentially developed immunity.

The roll-out will start with health care workers, patients and care home residents from next week.
