Major League Baseball teams are participating in a study of the coronavirus that will test hundreds of people — including players — from the various clubs for antibodies.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are among the teams participating in the study. Stanford University is one of the institutions running the study.
Up to 10,000 people are part of the study, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, who also reported that the goal of the study is to get a better measure of how many people nationwide may have had coronavirus, since some who contract the disease are asymptomatic.
As explained by Diamondbacks president and CEO Derrick Hall talking to Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf, the test involves drawing blood from the finger and putting it in a machine that runs the test in about 10 minutes.
