Minnesota readies antibody COVID-19 response

Via Star Tribune

“The University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic are now both offering clinical antibody tests to find out who has recovered from COVID-19, a respiratory illness that has been lab-confirmed in 1,650 cases and caused 70 deaths in the state.”

“Usage of the U’s new test started Monday at M Health Fairview’s Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul, which was converted last month into a 90-bed COVID-19 treatment facility. Priority will be to test doctors, nurses and others treating COVID-19 who are at greatest risk of exposure to the novel coronavirus causing the illness. Mayo launched its antibody testing last week and so far has checked 86 workers or patients.”
