UCI Study: COVID-19 seven times higher in OC than previously thought

UCI researchers sought to improve on the accuracy of blood tests by recruiting “subjects outside of a clinical setting” and by using “strategies to minimize bias of recruiting mostly symptomatic cases.”  The scientists also applied a technology they say has “superior sensitivity and specificity relative to what were currently available FDA-approved tests used by others” who have conducted similar serological studies, according to UCI.
