The Escalation Rate of Antigen in Canada’s Adult Population: New Research Sheds Light
Currently, Canada's COVID-19 Immunity Task Force and Canadian Blood Services are publicizing the outcomes of the initial 10,000 blood contributor samples evaluated for antigens of SARS-CoV-2. The investigation simply makes known that from 9th May through 8th June 2020, less than 1 percent of the 10,000 blood samples tested positive for antigens to the new Covid19. Antigens show past infection with SARS-CoV-2, hence making population analysis of this kind to reveal the number of people that have probably been vulnerable to the virus.
This out-turn provides an initial sighting into the current Canadian Blood Services research evaluating SARS-CoV-2 antigens over nine regions Regular updates will be done immediately Canadian Blood Services are done with their investigation of the total sample of 37,800 contributions made in May and June this year. Furthermore, the results for Quebec will be provided by Héma-Québec before long; this is very crucial in getting a well-rounded and comprehensive detail about the Coronavirus rates in the region.
Immediately the results of the total investigation of the analysis of the ten regions are fully done and collated in few weeks, Professor Catherine Hankins, CITF Co-Chair, thinks that the citizenry should be carried along with immediate effect due to the perturbing spike in the Coronavirus cases caused by the relaxation of the lockdown all over Canada. She further reiterated that the entire populace stands at risk even though it is only a small percentage of adult Canadians that have been infected by the virus. She laid much emphasis on the need to upgrade the amplitude of tracing and testing to curtail the spread.
Professor David Naylor, CITF Co-Chair, expressed his agreement in that the facts surely indicates the existence of various undiscovered infections for each case detected through RNA and swab screening. He went on to advise the populace to ensure regular washing of hands, constant obedience to social distancing guidelines, and putting on nose masks in communal indoor terrains and the general outdoors.
