USC President Carol L. Folt and Professor Neeraj Sood of the USC Price School of Public Policy joined Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti at his daily COVID-19 briefing Wednesday to discuss Sood’s serological testing study.
Sood described the study, in which researchers from USC and the county tested the blood of 1,000 randomly selected individuals for COVID-19 antibodies over the weekend. It’s an effort that could help chart the safest path toward post-pandemic life. Folt praised the unique collaborative effort involving the university, L.A. County and the mayor’s office, along with partners at Stanford University and UCLA.
