BHMG Conference Series – Covid-19 Testing: Role and Limitations of Testing

May 4, 2020

It is true that quick and easy testing is required in order to achieve containment (case identification and contact tracing) after mitigation has achieved a very low prevalence. Significantly, for Baptist Health the identification of an IgG response will probably make it possible to identify a cadre of healthcare providers who will be able to interact with COVID-19 patients, or suspected COVID-19 positive patients, with less risk to themselves and their families.

Join Dr. Allan Feingold as he discusses the latest information related to Covid-19 testing.
