Research casts doubt on the reliability of rapid Covid testing immediately after infection STAT (Dr. Kevin). Wow, false negatives are a known issue…but see to what extent:

On days 0 and 1 after the PCR test was positive, all the antigen tests used produced false negative results, although in 28 of the 30 cases, the level of the virus detected by the PCR test was high enough to infect others people. In four cases, the researchers were able to confirm that the infected person had spread the virus to others before the rapid antigen test result was positive.

One year later, how is Biden doing in response to the pandemic? Justin Feldman (Lois F). Today’s must read. A convincing and well-supported view of why the Biden administration’s approach is so misleading. Given the lack of lasting immunity, it is scientifically crazy, but politically convenient, because it conforms to “will not change at all”:

I think the Biden administration has made a strategic decision to prepare for a specific pandemic situation. In this case, high levels of illness and death will continue to exist in early 2021, after which the population will generally develop immunity to vaccination and previous infections. This population immunity will reduce the number of deaths to a manageable and negligible level, just like seasonal flu. In this case, the Biden administration’s pandemic response will focus on vaccination and medical care, while largely rejecting other public health measures—the so-called “non-pharmaceutical intervention” policy, from contact tracing to large-scale Detection, and then temporarily shut down non-essential services.
