Taipei, Aug. 26 (CNA) The results of a large-scale testing program for COVID-19 antibodies in the central county of Changhua are expected to be made public on Thursday, two days after the scheduled announcement was postponed due to an "administrative" delay.

The research team in charge of the testing project involving more than 10,000 test subjects notified the media on Wednesday that the results of the antibody tests will be made public in Taipei early the following day.

In a statement, the team said it will announce the results of testing for positive rates and response intensity of COVID-19 nucleoprotein antibodies, spike protein antibodies and neutralizing antibodies, at the planned press event to be headed by Chan Chang-chuan (詹長權), a professor at the College of Public Health under National Taiwan University (NTU) and the leader of the mass-testing project.

The notification came several hours after NTU public health professor Chen Hsiu-hsi (陳秀熙), a member of the research team, told the press Wednesday that the test results will be made public as soon as possible "as a public service."    [FULL  STORY]
