Episode Summary


Let’s talk about laboratory testing for COVID-19. Again. What’s new since we talked about this in August? A lot. Here are some of the questions we’ll talk about.

  • Do positive antibody tests indicate that people are immune to infection by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19?
  • What sample types might replace the dreaded nasopharyneal swab for more comfortable sample collection?
  • What are the new rapid tests for COVID-19, and how should they be used?
