Adams had practical advice for Trump: announce a “road map” towards making cheap home tests for coronavirus universally available.
Adams noted an article at Reason.com explaining that technology for cheap coronavirus home testing is being developed. …
It would cost around $20 billion to provide 330 million Americans with rapid at-home test kits costing $1 each for weekly use. Given that the federal government has already borrowed $3 trillion in response to the pandemic and appears interested in borrowing trillions more, that would be a real bargain. Such a testing regime “will stop the vast majority of transmission and it will cause these outbreaks to disappear in a matter of weeks,” Mina said. “This is something we can actually do at warp speed.”
The problem, Bailey explained, is that such tests are currently illegal…
Adams suggested that Trump would be “guaranteed” a win in November if he would address the problem, and create a one-page “road map” with a timetable for producing cheap, universal, weekly at-home testing.
Trump’s performance on covid has been weak. To note that the Dems would have been worse is little consolation. The non-left spurned its chance to gain control of the US borders, and the Dems turned a two to six week lockdown in April into a 7 month-and-counting failed lockdown by not closing the borders. As calculated here, the US lockdown non-performance is consistent with about a hundred cases of covid entering the US per day.
Trump would have won this election easily, if not for covid.
