Covid Antibody testing

I was trying to find out why Florida hasn't reported any new cases last two days and ran across antibody testing results. I had not seen any data on antibody testing and found it interesting.

It appears 27% of those tested have antibodies. I do not know if it includes those who got the vaccine or how that works into the percentage.

This is another from last October at tests done at medical facilities only and then it showed 15% of those tested had antibodies. Only about 5% of Floridians had tested positive at the time looking at new case data for the period.

That to me would indicate about 3 times the number of people had Covid than new cases are showing. Which would be even more good news as we try to get to herd immunity.
