    Thought this is a great article which summarized the state of antibody testing for SARS-COV-2 I totally agree with your conclusions I am a clinical and molecular immunologist just getting ready to offer antibody testing in south jersey in my lab As lab director I’m recommending it as a first step towards defining immunity in patients My intensions is to expand that to include both antibodies and T cell activities in patients. There is evidence that T cells play an active role in both protecting and activating the immune system by the virus

    Thank you, succinct and well targeted for me, on the thoughts I have had… and I particularly like the Zombie reference! :)
