This does beg the question is this test picking up some variant of the covid virus and not covid 19

Alternatively, they could also have found a cluster and sampled to many people in the cluster thus skewing the results

As always, more tests are needed.

All the variants are called Covid-19. It's unique enough that it's not mistaken for anything else. The variants are tiny... if it was human (and not a virus) the mutations would be on the order of "has blue eyes" or "has black hair" or "has freckles" and not "has an extra arm and three hands."

COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) is the disease.
SARS-Cov-2 (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2) is the virus that causes it (of which 2 strains are known to have been identified thus far).
edit: Of the two known viruses, one is thought to be considerably more dangerous.

Personally, I'd be very happy if this virus is not as deadly as first reported.

I'm in a demographic that does not do well with this virus.

Also, they need to do this type of study in New York. New York has a huge number of people been tested in the hospital. Does this mean that there are 50 times as many people who had mild or no symptom? New York has 252,000 confirmed cases. That would mean that there are 10 million people that have the antibodies in New York alone

95% of people in NY have the Anti-bodies in them already lol lol...because they already have a Bacterial form relative of the viral contaminate sized living Pleomorphic Bacteria disguised in viral size called Covid-19 in its traditional Bacterial form insitu inside them.The person being tested for the so-called viral anti-bodies ALREADY had them inside their body BEFORE they contracted Covid-19...because Covid-19 is just a gut bacteria that has morphed and went into the bloodstream in viral contaminate size to be expelled ALIVE instead of dead like other viral sized pieces of dead material... people are getting something hey have already you understand now?The nasty magic of the un-policed Pleomorphic Bacteria?

Does it ever bother you that you toss out your under informed opinions as if it is 100% fact based? You make these affirmations as if you're involved in the research and you aren't. You're just typing up worthless krunk and pretending its a fact with no bearing on the subject matter being discussed or the science involved.

As usual Peter hollow commentary based on nothing but your obssesive desire to troll me on ATS…..Peter the cat is out of the are one of those who has fought for a long time to keep it in the over Peter.Its not been fun and it is over now...savvy?

Stop trolling and trying to derail another ATS Members relevant have no power nor acumen to decide what is relevant and what is not for everyone zip it.

As a side note usual we see no formal normal sane rebuttal from you just more worthless dross.This is because there IS NO REBUTTAL POSSIBLE . Peter,come on if you are so interested and believe you can back up your slanderous attack go for it....I would love to explain the finer details upon your back....but you do not deal in facts you deal in misinformation and redirects so bring it with normal rebuttal if you can manage that or keep your childish attacks to yourself....your schtick is old.

Have a nice day Peter.....hope springs eternal.

What antibodies test?
I haven't seen that that is available.
Is this more nonsense?

a reply to: Sillyolme

Two types of test are typically developed in regard to a disease, one to test for the microbial agent (virus, bacteria, etc.) and one to test for the antibodies. The first is used to identify/confirm what it is or if an individual is actively infected, the latter identifies if they have been exposed (at some time) and are immune by testing if they are producing the antibodies that help combat the microbial agent, in many cases years or decades after exposure depending on the antibody production.

The antibody test results can also be used to identify how much of a population has been exposed and make estimates as to "herd immunity" in a community.

In short, it is real, not nonsense.

Earliest known US death was actually in early February in California with no known travel history.

It happened in Santa Clara Co California which means that person got in mid-January.

So the virus was here earlier than thought and already spreading in the community. So if you thought you had it, you should get antibody tested.

I don't get it, official results from an antibody test conducted by the University of Southern California (USC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health showed that mortality rate from Covid19 in L.A. county is less than 0.2% and they continue with this lockdown charade?!?

The ESTEEMED World Health Organization continues disseminating discouraging Covid-19 news.

Antibodies aren't important:

The doctors are not going to respect the CDC and NIH after they learn they were led to believe this whole thing has been blown out of proportion and is destroying the economy and in some cases is destroying the community hospitals that have to turn away all the non-essential operations and doctors appointments. The CDC cannot cover up this by adding all deaths to the covid deaths, they already added most of the deaths with possible covid like symptoms to their list of covid deaths. The CDC is just as guilty of covering things up here as the Chinese government was, just a different tactic being used.
