I signed up for bikur cholims testing today In Lakewood. They emailed me when to go to the testing site and they took one vial of blood. Ill report back if/when they contact me about donating.

I went today as well. They told me that I might only find out whether I have antibodies if they actually need me to donate.

Ive had a dry cough on and off for two months (still have one now), and other symptoms that passed. I never got tested for infection. Would definitely want to donate plasma if I have antibodies, can I get tested? Do you think theyd want to screen me?

probably yes heard from someone tested in Monsey that basically the computer made the decision you just tweak answers a little they were very generous not to many questions asked

GiftOfLife emailed me with a survey link for people who had been infected with COVID-19 to sign up for antibody testing for plasma donation.

A close relative of mine tested for Covid-19 and it came back negative. He managed to get an Anti Body test and it came back, as him having the Anti Body.

Not sure which test was inaccurate but most likely it was the original Covid test. He had the  symptoms.

I am wondering was % of test are inaccurate.
