Signs of coronavirus antibodies are showing up more frequently in blood donations.

The American Red Cross reports more than 20% of donations from unvaccinated people for the first week of March showed COVID-19 antibodies.

The Red Cross says the presence of antibodies does not confirm infection or immunity but indicates a person was likely exposed to the virus.
