1 in 5 people tested in New York City had antibodies for the coronavirus


Nearly 1 in 7 people in New York who were randomly tested  for coronavirus antibodies turned out to have them, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced today (April 23). In New York City, the number is even higher: About 1 in 5 people tested positive for antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. 

If those early results translate to the rest of the New York population, that would mean about 2.7 million people across the state would have been infected.

The antibodies suggest these people were exposed at one point to the coronavirus and recovered, Cuomo said. However, it is still not known whether or not these people  are now immune to it.
