Daily Testing Rant.

This piece underscores the need for a truly massive enterprise to not only get the number of new cases and deaths down to as low as possible using physical isolation, but to test nearly everyone (both serum and swab to find active cases, asymptomatic carriers, and those who have antibodies and may be immune), and to quarantine and contact trace everyone who tests positive or had close contact with someone who tests positive. This is the ONLY WAY we can get control of this thing short of effective antivirals or vaccines. Which WE CANNOT AFFORD TO WAIT FOR.

We must demand full mobilization to get this done with the fierce urgency that it warrants.
