He's giving his blood, sweat, and tears, literally! Any COVID-19 antibody testing Canada does will include samples from the Prime Minister. Once it becomes available, he says he'll make sure he gets tested.\nOn May 26, during Justin Trudeau's daily press conference, Canada's antibody testing was brought up as it relates to him.\nTrudeau was asked by a reporter about whether or not he plans to take a serological test when it becomes available because of his exposure to the virus.\nHis answer to the question was simple.\n"Yes, I do,” Trudeau said.\nHe noted that as soon as those tests become widely available across the country to Canadians, he will make sure that he is among those who get tested.\n"I think serological testing is an important part of understanding exactly how COVID-19 has been present in the country, including in people who haven't displayed any symptoms at all,” Trudeau said.\nHealth Canada authorized the country’s first serological test back on May 12. That will detect COVID-19 antibodies.\nAt least one million blood samples from Canadians will be collected over the next two years to be tested so that the virus can be tracked in the general population along with those who are at greater risk.\nBased on what he said, Trudeau will be included in that.\nInteresting! Trudeau is going to take a serological test because he was exposed to his wife's COVID-19 case early on.These tests detect antibodies in the blood -- which would tell us if Trudeau ever actually had COVID-19.More: https://t.co/gDsnZulB1L pic.twitter.com/otwa8rABYP— Rachel Gilmore (@atRachelGilmore) May 26, 2020\nThe PM was likely exposed to COVID-19 by his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau when she got the virus back in March. Due to that, he isolated at Rideau Cottage and she quarantined.\nGrégoire Trudeau fully recovered from the virus a couple of weeks after testing positive.\nThe testing of the collected samples will be done under the leadership of Canada’s COVID-19 Immunity Task Force.\nHealth Canada noted that serological tests that detect antibodies help give an understanding of if people who get the virus are immune to it.\nThe task force will try to answer questions about how many people had the virus beyond those who were tested and how long possibly immunity could last.\nIn another step to defeat the virus, Health Canada has approved the first Canadian clinical trials for a potential vaccine.\nThat will happen at the Canadian Centre for Vaccinology at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.\nIf the trials are successful, there would be work done to make sure that the COVID-19 vaccine can be produced and distributed here in Canada.
