    you don’t think huge backups in testing and lab capacity mean fewer positive results?

    Sweden's curve looks like NY's. We should have done what they did, and we would be on the other end of it now.

    Now you want to hold up Scandinavian countries as the model? That's pretty rich.

    The other end of what? COVID's shoe?

    Yes, but I'm saying that's not happening on a consistent basis. My suburban county offers free testing by appointment. Private clinics provide testing pretty quickly and easily. I have a co-worker who found out his test results (positive) last week, a couple of days after testing.

    Yes, the federal and state government should be doing more to expand testing, but that doesn't mean that the situation is as you described.

    I think we know we are still drastically undertesting in this country. That is why Faucci is starting to push for pooled testing, which sounds like a great idea to me. We need to be doing millions of tests every day, especially while we are in the heat of this surge.

    The reason we overcame out East here is because we went on total shutdown for two months. While we have learned since that masks can really help, we still need to discourage people from going out unless absolutely necessary. The only way at this point to slow this virus is to starve it of hosts.
