Anyone else tested by Medrite in Monsey and cares to share the results? Trying to compare my numbers with a comparable case.

They are doing a drive Sunday in Detroit https://plasma.lrbcol.org/
Interesting that Detroit got hit so hard and CLE didn't. Any theories?

I recall the week before YT they were predicting that after NYC, the next metro areas which were expecting a spike were Wayne County (MI) and Cook County (IL).

Very strange. Went to get tested for antibodies at Mt Sinai today. The nurses said all sorts of stuff I didn't expect to hear: If you're positive but your count is low, you'll likely develop more antibodies in the coming weeks. If you've had no symptoms for 2 weeks you're not contagious. If your antibody levels are high enough you're immune and won't get it again. Etc.

Not sure if this just reflects lack of up to date knowledge on the consensus, or the opposite - that they internally feel they've proven these things somehow.

Many Dr's say so. Some PPl feel its overly important to be overly cautious. If you're in a high risk group you shall ask your Dr. for his opinion.

This is the paper they hand you. This is obviously not exactly the same as what they were telling us.

And some hospitals feel too.

A person can only be normal, when many Dr's say the same and data indicates so, and your a low risk group, why not listen to medical advice?
