With COVID-19 testing continuing to lag in the U.S., the extent to which the pandemic has spread in the country remains elusive. One hope to ascertain this spread is the use of antibody tests, which can help detect if an individual has already been exposed to COVID-19. Now available on the market, these tests may help health care professionals, researchers, government officials and the public alike as society begins to reopen. However, questions have emerged regarding the accuracy of the tests, as well as their role in ascertaining important factors such as future immunity.
In this Facebook Live Q&A, epidemiologist Michael Mina will review antibody testing in the U.S., as well as update our viewers on other testing and contact tracing measures that will ultimately allow us to reopen society. The World’s Jonathan Dyer will moderate. Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to Facebook @ForumHSPH or @pritheworld.
