In March, the UCI Medical Center became the first hospital in Orange County to provide COVID-19 testing. In the UCI Podcast, Dr. Ed Monuki, chair of pathology who leads UCI Health’s testing efforts, discusses how the campus came together to address this community need and how future testing for the coronavirus and its antibodies will play an important role with the resumption of our regular daily activities, like going back to work or the classroom.
