Testing / Contact Tracing / Quarantine of Positives... the ONLY WAY (again)

Rajiv Shah (MD), the head of the Rockefeller Foundation, was excellent on Chris Hayes today, explaining EXACTLY what I've been saying. "We need a huge massive enterprise to expand testing around the world"... the only "pathway out" of our current economic and public health predicament. Testing both serum and diagnostic, contact tracing, and isolation of people testing positive is the ONLY way to actually succeed in suppressing the epidemic short of effective antivirals and/or vaccines. The sooner people understand this and start DEMANDING that our government mobilize whatever resources are necessary to get this done, the sooner life can return to some semblance of normal. The fact that it is also the only way to minimize more death and suffering should be reason enough.
