Govenor Ron DeSantis held a press conference at the Hard Rock Stadium to discuss new antibody testing and a mobile testing site.

Anti-body testing, which can help those who have had COVID-19 and were not aware, will soon be available at hospitals and drive-thru sites.

These tests will also go to hospitals to test staff in order to see if they have developed a resistance to the virus.

The mobile testing unit will be able to reach those who are most vulnerable, and supply results in real time.

A swab was taken at the beginning of the press conference, and results were available when DeSantis finished speaking, after about 40 minutes.
