Jim -You said: I would have thought that somebody out there would be doing sample testing (PCR and serum if possible) of some broad population by now, to get an answer.A broad nationwide survey of the United States was announced by the National Institute of Health yesterday (Friday April 10th). They are taking healthy volunteers over the age of 18:After enrollment, study participants will attend a virtual clinic visit, complete a health assessment questionnaire and provide basic demographic information—including race, ethnicity, sex, age and occupation—before submitting samples in one of two ways. Participants working at the NIH Bethesda campus will have blood drawn at the NIH Clinical Center. Other volunteers will participate in at-home blood sampling. Neoteryx, a medical device firm based in Torrance, California, will supply at-home blood collection kits. Researchers will ship each study participant a Mitra®Home Blood Collection Kit and provide detailed instructions on collecting a microsample of blood and mailing it back for future analysis in the laboratory.https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/nih-begins-stu...-Jeff
