What happens now?
Can you ask them what % of their test pool had antibodies?

It wouldn’t be representative of the broader population.

When is this testing coming to Crown Heights?

Great article in Mishpacha about the origin of the CovidPlasma group - what a Kiddush Hashem

Had signed up for the group in the beginning of April and drove to Brooklyn today with two of my kids to get tested for antibodies. So proud of them.
