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.

LabCorp started offering antibody testing at a number of Walgreens stores on April 27. The drugstore chain now features the blood tests at over 100 LabCorp centers within their store venues.

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.

No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab

Published

on

On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.

Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”

At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”

“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.

Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky  Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.

“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
