testing as an absolute imperative

I feel I have to say this EVERY day until something happens. The key to getting through this to anything like a normal state, with a normal economy, is TESTING TESTING TESTING. Test everyone insofar as possible. Develop and deploy both swab (current infection) and serum (presence of antibody) tests designed to give instant results and cost very little. Deploy, deploy, deploy. Equivalent to wartime necessity. I see NO SIGN the idiots in charge of our country get this. But if we want to return to anything like a normal economy before effective antirvirals or vaccines are available (up to 18 months and no guarantee), this is the ONLY way. Testing, contact tracing, isolation of positives. There is no other way.
