COVID-19 antibody test from UC Irvine team can predict if you’ll have severe disease

Some researchers at UC Irvine have developed a new kind of COVID-19 antibody test that can predict early on if someone will have a severe case of the disease. … A simple blood test available in labs around the world can reveal these bad antibodies within the first few days of the disease, potentially as early as one day after symptoms appear, according to UC Irvine professor Gregory Weiss, who oversaw the research.
