As stated in this article: "The real challenge, Obtera told Live Science, will be producing the cartridges and testing systems quickly. The company must practice social distancing on the manufacturing lines to keep workers from falling ill". If each worker is tested for covid 19 prior to starting their shift and if this rapid test is negative for covid-19 then they could work close to each other ... correct? If not, does that mean that is the test not accurate enough for the workers to take the risk of contracting covid 19 from each other?

In response to the crisis pandemic the world is facing; Multibrands International has launched a revolutionary product named 'Panodyne Rapid Test Kit' to test for coronavirus. The highly portable lgM-lgG the combined antibody test for COVID-19, developed by an expert team, is now available to test for the detection of lgG and lgM antibodies of coronavirus from a small specimen of human serum, plasma or droplet of blood. The detection works with proteins to indicate if a person's immune system has responded with the COVID-19 virus to indicate infection.

But could they have built immune system response with just exposure and not full on infection, or rather that they did contract but it never was able to take full hold? I think everyone is wondering if that mystery cough back in December or January could have been Covid-19 - www.djemir.com

I have been hearing some Drs saying they have concerns about some of the new antibody tests and that most are not specific to this strain. One of the companies being used states on its website...
“Positive results may be due to past or present infection with non-SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strains, such as coronavirus HKU1, NL63, OC43, or 229E. “
So how is that going to be helpful at all??
