An antibody test related to COVID-19 will be released by the Mayo Clinic next week. Doctor Deepi Goyal with the Mayo Clinic says it’s a game-changer.
“This will detect an immune response in a patient that may have had the virus,” said Goyal. “The advantage of that is they can detect antibodies it can identify patients that have may potentially have been exposed and may be immune to subsequent infections of COVID. And I say maybe expose because we don’t know for sure how this virus will behave.”
Goyal says medical professionals will need to learn more about how to use the test properly.
