"Inability" suggests it's something the Trump administration wants to do but is incapable of doing. "Supression" is more like it. You can tell by the partisanship of these testing talks just how little Trump wants to see the real numbers.

His puny brain can't wrap his mind around the idea that it's his only route forward.

It's nice that Dr. Birx always mentions her concerns about Massachusetts at this time. Especially because Trump doesn't indicate that he gives a damn. He never even mentions the state-the reasons for that, who knows. One could speculate.

Just so everyone is clear-he said he thinks he's going to win the election in a landslide. Because that's what matters right now too.

I think it's important to note that when any gov atm talks about testing capacity they tend to only be referring to labs able to process the tests ( at least here in the UK). The availability of the test itself and the manpower required (nurses etc) to do the test is a different story.

Again, when people start talking about herd immunity as the magic bullet, ask yourself if you’re willing to live the rest of your life with lung, kidney and/or heart damage. I know my answer.

He clearly has no idea why Rosa Parks did what she did. Disgusting to compare those protesters to her.



An ally and occasional adviser of President Donald Trump said those protesting coronavirus restrictions were “the modern-day Rosa Parks,” referring to the icon of the civil rights movement who refused to give up her bus seat.

Stephen Moore made his comments in a Washington Post article published Friday.

“I think there’s a boiling point that has been reached and exceeded,” Moore, an economist and conservative commentator who Trump unsuccessfully tried to nominate to the board of the Federal Reserve last year, told the Post.

“I call these people the modern-day Rosa Parks — they are protesting against injustice and a loss of liberties,” Moore said.

While he does not work in the White House, Moore has been advising the president on economic issues surrounding the coronavirus.

So my idiotic state of Wisconsin, who voted for Trump in 2016 and whose Supreme Court overruled our Democratic Governor in delaying last Tuesday's election, now has at least 7 confirmed cases of individuals who voted last week, including a poll worker. Should be interesting to see how many more confirmed cases there are in the next couple days.

Extremely unfortunate and completely unnecessary.

Basically “you can wear a Bandana and it does help, but definitely don’t touch your Bandana.”

For context here, 1-5 microns is supposedly the size of the water droplets (someone coughing), and the smaller one is more the size of the virus itself (contact with surfaces).

"Say it don't spray it" should be Biden's campaign slogan.

Bay Area town is up to the tests

Bolinas is among the first communities to attempt to screen all its residents for virus.
BY LAURA NEWBERRY
The remote Bay Area town of Bolinas is among the first communities in the world to attempt to test all of its residents for the novel coronavirus.

Bolinas, population 1,600, will offer free tests Monday through Thursday to residents 4 years and older, according to a statement from UC San Francisco, whose staffers will administer the tests.

The communitywide testing effort was spearheaded by two locals, venture capitalist Jyri Engestrom and pharmaceutical company executive Cyrus Harmon.

Nearly the entire town was registered for testing as of Friday, according to the Mercury News.

The drive-through test will entail a mouth and throat swab to check for active infection and a finger prick to detect antibodies, a crucial step in determining who has already had the virus.

A second round of testing will follow two weeks later if enough money is raised.

The project is expensive, costing more than $400,000 and entirely funded by private donations, the Mercury News reported.

Few communities globally have attempted to implement comprehensive testing.

And those that have tend to be small, tightly knit and progressive-leaning, such as Bolinas and Telluride, Colo.

Bolinas organizers were inspired by the Italian town of Vo’, outside Venice, which was able to gain control of the virus’ spread through two rounds of community-wide testing.

A team of infectious disease doctors at UC San Francisco will analyze the collected samples to gauge the prevalence of infection in Bolinas.

The study will also help researchers trace the spread of the virus in California, the university said.

Effective testing is considered essential before state and local governments can lift stay-at-home orders, reopen schools and businesses, and allow the nation’s faltering economy to recover.

Diane Havlir, head of UC San Francisco’s HIV/AIDS division, said in a statement that testing sets the foundation for every other component of the pandemic response.

This is an article I copied from today's L A Times.

In a perfect world we could be able to do this to the whole population.

This seems to be the standard most people want to see implemented.

Singapore was ready to come out of the lockdown and has now extended it by another month with massive outbreaks in their worker camps. They are now posting higher daily infection numbers than in their first wave - a great example of what happens when you are readying to reopen and get large crowds together again.

A lesson many US states are about to learn.

At a cost of $400,000.00 for 1,600 folks (actually less cause kids under 4 won't get tested), the cost to do this nationwide would be about 82 Billion.
