(CNN) A new nationwide study of the blood of more than 28,000 dialysis patients may help answer one of the big questions surrounding the pandemic: how many people have antibodies to SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus?The answer could tell us a lot about how many people in the United States have been exposed to the virus and how much community spread there has been. Plus, the testing strategy used in the study points to a relatively easy way to track Covid-19 disease activity over the long-term, especially among vulnerable populations.The short answer to how many people had antibodies, as of July, is approximately 9.3% — although numbers ranged from an average of 3.5% in the West to an average of 27% in the Northeast.

What the 1918 flu pandemic can teach us about coronavirus“This research clearly confirms that despite high rates of COVID-19 in the United States, the number of people with antibodies is still low and we haven’t come close to achieving herd immunity. Until an effective vaccine is approved, we need to make sure our more vulnerable populations are reached with prevention measures,” study author Dr. Julie Parsonnet, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, said in a statement.
