The currently available SARS-CoV-2 antibody tests with their traditional serological approaches just tell us - yes or no, which has resulted in an underestimation of asymptomatic and mild infections.

This editorial describes a recent study (Nature, 17th Aug 2020) that gives an idea about the future of antibody testing in Covid-19.
