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.
Seems consistent with everything else related to covid-19 - nothing makes sense.
 
Although cant it just be that  she hasn't fully recovered yet and developed those antibodies?

healthcare workers who were absolutely exposed to many many people with positive symptoms

Exposed with or without PPE?

Thatís crazy. Donít know what to believe anymore.
I remember watching the press conference a week or so ago (they all look the same). They asked the president if was going to take the antibody test. Dr Brix responded there was no such test. This is when states were doing test.

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?

Highly doubt any state can take much longer....they may have some serious civil unrest on their hands .

PPE but not hospital grade. Lets put it this way...wouldnt count on any PPE really working with the amount of patients any healthcare worker is exposed to. Plenty hospital staff have self quarantined from family because they know PPE only helps so much.

Probably her genetic makeup. Shes only one in oir family who lost titers to MMR and needed to be vaccinated a third time.

What are they seeing as far as antibody testing? Is it consistent with people who were presumed positive?
A large NY medical center/hospital is passing information not to take the antibody test since they haven't tested its validity to COVID-19 as a whole.  IOW, still too many unanswered questions regarding number of strains, length of immunity, etc. so there is no point in getting it since we don't yet know what it means.

most hospitals are having their workers as the guinea pigs to see if it works

Lol. Why is anyone even responding to his comments? Does anyone actually give them any weight?

That would be my response in a normal world.  ::)

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.
quote from Bill Gates in Washington Post, if you go for him
But several more-promising candidates are on the horizon. One involves drawing blood from patients who have recovered from covid-19, making sure it is free of the coronavirus and other infections, and giving the plasma (and the antibodies it contains) to sick people. Several major companies are working together to see whether this succeeds.
Of course he ends we need a vaccine......

Exactly...building a database like bone marrow or kidney donation.
