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.
