Dr. Florian Krammer Discusses Retrospective Serological Study with The New York Times

In an article in The New York Times, Dr. Florian Krammer talks about his recent work conducting a retrospective analysis of SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence. Dr. Krammer, a Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and member of the Center for Research on Influenza Pathogenesis (CRIP), recently published a pre-print article examining more than 5,000 serum samples from New York City and found evidence of SARS-CoV-2 seropositive samples collected from patients in February 2020. With New York City’s first case of COVID-19 confirmed on March 1, 2020, Dr. Krammer’s work suggests that SARS-CoV-2 may have circulated in the city several weeks earlier.
