Antibody testing will begin to ramp up throughout the nation in the days and weeks ahead to better inform our tact in fighting the pandemic.
At a hospital in Chicago, a non-randomized sample found that 30-50% of patients tested for Corona have antibodies in their system, suggesting they already had the virus and have potential immunity.
The Chicago City ire reported that:
“A phlebotomist working at Roseland Community Hospital said Thursday that 30% to 50% of patients tested for the coronavirus have antibodies while only around 10% to 20% of those tested have the active virus.”
“Sumaya Owaynat, a phlebotomy technician, said she tests between 400 and 600 patients on an average day in the parking lot at Roseland Community Hospital.
“Drive-thru testing is from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. each day. However, the hospital has a limited number of tests they can give per day.
“Owaynat said the number of patients coming through the testing center who appear to have already had coronavirus and gotten over it is far greater than those who currently have the disease.”
Owaynat told Chicago City Wire:
“A lot of people have high antibodies, which means they had the coronavirus but they don’t have it anymore, and their bodies built the antibodies.”
The antibody testing will better inform public health and government officials about how widespread the virus is already, and in turn, how effective their lockdown measures will actually be.
It’s unclear how widespread the virus is in the nation, and where. According to a New York Times report, more than 25% of all carriers are asymptomatic, meaning they carry the disease and have no symptoms to show for it.
Meanwhile, researchers at Stanford Medicine are working to find out what proportion of Californians have already had COVID-19. The new study could help policymakers make more informed decisions during the coronavirus pandemic.
High positive antibody test results would mean the virus is more contagious than initially thought, But less deadly. Are these antibody testings a possible exit door of the current drastic and inhuman lockdown conditions?

India says if you drinking cow urine will cure Corona we had story in strange sounds. Now we have new story very similar indeed.
Camel urine, a new fringe of Islamic medicine in the shadow of opposition from the Ministry of Health and the support of Ali Khamenei’s relatives
The widespread dissemination of the third medical advice of supporters of Islamic medicine for the treatment of corona in drinking camel urine was met with silence from the judiciary and law enforcement and the reaction of officials from the Ministry of Health and Medical Education and the Medical System Organization.
Despite the opposition of the Ministry of Health to Islamic medicine in recent years, supporters of traditional and Islamic medicine have expanded their activities thanks to the support of relatives of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
This lack of coordination has now become more serious with the outbreak of the Corona Crisis and the intensification of the activities of Islamic medicine activists.
“Anyone can go to the stables and consume anything, but none of that,” said Kianoosh Jahanpour, head of public relations at the Ministry of Health, on Monday, May 1, in response to a video advising to drink camel urine to boost immunity against corona. It is not approved by the Ministry of Health. ”
Noting that “the Ministry of Health does not oversee people’s privacy,” he said he did not want to get involved.
However, Jahanpour’s attempt to resolve the issue on Tuesday met with a backlash from Kambiz Nowruzi, a lawyer and attorney general.
He described the release of the film and his advice to people to drink camel urine in public as “absolutely irrelevant” to privacy and public affairs.
Nowruz also criticized the Ministry of Health’s “inability and lack of resources” in countering the move.
On the other hand, Mustafa Moin, the chairman of the Supreme Council of the Medical System Organization, reacted on Monday by posting a text on his Instagram page while calling the traditional and Islamic medicine “superstitious and imaginary.”
He wrote: “Treatment of diseases by eating hedgehogs ‘blood, عن smoking” Amber Nessa “or the ass of a female donkey, شی Using violet oil suppositories, جان Drinking camel’s urine, emphasizing non-compliance with doctors’ health advice to prevent corona and non-corona. “Drug treatment is one of the superstitions.”
On Sunday, Mehdi Sabili, a director of the Taba-ul-Sadegh Scientific-Educational Association, posted a video of a camel stall drinking the animal’s urine in front of the camera, urging people to treat it with corona. “Hot and fresh.”
This issue was widely reported in the virtual and official media.
The film was released while two other recommendations from Islamic and traditional medicine had already faced domestic and international fringe.
For the first time, Abbas Tabrizian, known as the “father of Islamic medicine,” had advised violet oil suppositories to treat corona in January.
A few days ago, the Islamic Republic Radio and Television’s Ofogh network, in an interview with a person as an expert, recommended “smelling fresh orange several times” to strengthen immunity against the disease.
Opposition from the Ministry of Health; support for Ali Khamenei’s relatives
Widespread propaganda of unconfirmed advice from supporters of Islamic medicine to treat Crohn’s disease is still free, while the judiciary and law enforcement have repeatedly warned journalists and the media to publish news related to Corona, as well as detain dozens of cyber activists for publishing reports. Have.
Proponents of Islamic medicine, based on the recommendations of the Islamic Republic’s religious leaders, including Ruhollah Khomeini and Ali Khamenei, have expanded their counter-insurgency efforts in recent decades by supporting the “Islamization of science.”
In December last year, Ali Akbar Velayati, a physician and a close associate of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, said that the Ministry of Health should give permission to experimental activists in traditional medicine.
He is now the director of Masih Daneshvari Hospital, one of Corona’s main care centers. At the time, he even asked for a legal license for people in traditional medicine who did not have a university degree.
On the other hand, Alireza Marandi, head of the Academy of Medical Sciences and head of Khamenei’s medical team, said: “I hope we will move in the direction of medical education and the provision of Islamic health services.”
He has also defended the training of “wise and Quranic physicians” in this field.
However, the six ministries of health have not turned to traditional and Islamic medicine.
In September 2017, the director general of the ministry’s traditional medicine office said that after three years of research on the subject by the health system working group, it had been concluded that there was no such thing as “Islamic medicine.”
Growth of educational and propaganda bases of Islamic medicine
Dozens of Internet information bases and free and public educational centers, known as Islamic or traditional medicine, have been operating in different cities of the country and are offering solutions to treat various diseases.
One of these advertising sites is a website called Hozeh, owned by the Computer Research Center for Islamic Sciences.
“One of the demands of the West and the enemies of Islam is the full dependence of Muslims on them, especially Jewish pharmaceutical companies, but in the Islamic way of life, according to the principle of Muslim independence,” the website said in a statement. “The best way is to treat it with non-chemical drugs.”
Islamic and traditional medicine are also taught in centers at some universities, including Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran and Ferdowsi University in Mashhad.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The judiciary and law enforcement agencies are unaware of the activities and unscientific recommendations of these centers and individuals responsible for the lives of patients and citizens at risk.
Let’s ask a real question. What is a C19 antibody anyway? They don’t even know for sure they have the real virus – as any research into the PCR test will reveal. They test for ALL related viruses. So this antibody could be any coronovirus.
