Israel, on the other hand, is gearing up for large scale serology tests in order to gauge the proportion of population which has developed antibodies against the novel coronavirus. Israel, whose aggressive response to the coronavirus has held its fatality rate to a fraction of those of the United States and other hard-hit nations, is readying a nationwide serological test of 100,000 citizens.
