On April 28, 2020, Quest Diagnostic announced that individuals can order a Wuhan virus antibody test online instead of having to go to a doctor for a prescription.
Americans who feel they may have been infected with COVID can finally get some answers with a quick blood test at a local lab. Quest says results come back within 48 hours
CNBC reported the following:
An antibody test shows whether someone has been exposed to or potentially had the coronavirus and developed the antibodies to fight the infection. It doesn’t guarantee immunity, but physicians say a positive antibody test indicates that a patient may have some level of protection against reinfection.
According to Quest’s website, the test costs $119.
Quest requires potential patients to fill out a short questionnaire to determine if they are eligible to be tested. From there, it instructs them to have their blood drawn at one of the company’s 2,200 laboratories, Quest announced in a statement. The company said that the results would be available after one or two days after a blood sample is taken.
Quest believes that the antibody tests can be useful for individuals who never felt symptoms or mild ones who think they were exposed to the virus on previous occasions. The clinical laboratory believes that these tests could help people determine whether their body produced antibodies to combat the disease.
U.S. officials and corporations across the nation are allocating substantial sums of money into antibody testing, in hopes that it will get people back to work and reopen certain sectors of the economy.
This represents a positive development in the Wuhan virus saga.
Testing will be key in determining who’s at risk and who can go back into the workforce.
Focusing on testing should be the approach that policymakers take in dealing with this pandemic.
It strikes a solid balance with regards to public health and economic activity.
POLL: Real Clear Politics Shows a Tightening Race in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is going to be one of the most important battleground states in the 2020 election.
Many pundits have described it as a potential “tipping point” state, that could propel both candidates — Donald Trump and Joe Biden — to victory should they win it this election cycle.
According to recent polls, the Pennsylvania race has only tightened down the home stretch. As of October 27, 2020, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden leads Trump 49.6 at 45.8 on the RealClear Politics poll for Pennsylvania.
Back inn July 28, 2020 Biden was leading Trump 49.4 to 43.1. Although the former Vice President still maintains the lead, there is a clear sign that Trump is catching up following a final debate where some of Biden’s weaknesses were exposed following a controversial comment on natural gas.
President Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 0.4 points in 2016, after polls had failed Democrat presidential candidate Hilary Clinton leading by 1.9 points right before the election. This, along with Trump’s pickups in Michigan and Wisconsin, marked a major breakthrough for Republicans and showed the power of Trump’s America First nationalist message.
Now, we’re back in the home stretch. Biden has already made major gaffes by calling Trump supporters “chumps” and even explicitly calling for the end to regular oil production. Trump must capitalize on these mistakes and re-emphasize his successes against China regarding tariffs.
Pennsylvania voters don’t need to hear about the wonders of tax cuts but rather about the nationalist policy set Trump has to offer on issues of trade, immigration, and natural gas sector production. Trump has spent significant time campaigning in Pennsylvania, knowing full well that this state may determine the outcome of the entire race.
He should be focusing on the Keystone state and other Midwest states he flipped so that he can cruise on to victory by even more comfortable margins that he did in 2016.
