Can someone please explain to me the antibody plasma testing that has been going on all over the Jewish world. According to people in the know only one person has been given antibody therapy in Mount Sinai with no real results. The whole fanfare of sending it off by PJ to the Mayo clinic for testing. There are no known results so far. There are far more positive results from treating patients with HCY etc or blood thinners to reduce clots which seem to be a byproduct of the disease.

I have a bad feeling about this. My gut tells me this is just someone or a group of people building a database such as the bone marrow or kidney testing drives that go on regularly and someone will be profiting off this. Dont get me wrong, people are tzadikim for contributing their time and for getting tested for many of these ventures.
It seems like they are also trying it in EY with some results.

There might be an element of do-gooding trying to counteract the negative press/aiva.

Such total bunk on so many levels. Disappointed in Tucker lately.
In regards to your social distancing point, I don't think he was talking about that at all. He was talking about locking down cities. These are 2 different things. I'm not saying he right or wrong, just getting the facts straight.

That seems a bit much to do go 5 1/2 weeks out with a stay at home order. Why wouldn't they do a shorter time frame and reassess then?

Def more than one person has been given the this antibody therapy, and some have responded well to it.

In US? Where?

My daughter tells me that results from a few days of testing IGG immunity are rolling in on antibody tests and they are very weird. People who tested negative on nasal swab COVID tests multiple times are positive for antibodies and healthcare workers who were absolutely exposed to many many people with positive symptoms are testing negative for antibodies.

Explain how they are different?

AFAIK, locking down a city to the fullest extent (like China) is the most extreme form of social distancing. Allowing everyone to proceed as normal with just a few precautions (like Sweden and the states he quoted) is the least extreme form of social distancing. He was referring to the measures cities/states/countries were taking, all locked down to some extent or another.

What are they seeing as far as antibody testing? Is it consistent with people who were presumed positive?

All I can say is my daughter, an RN treating confirmed positive patients left and right, has had symptoms like cough, slight fever, loss of taste and smell yet...tested negative for antibodies.
