Joe Biden’s pledge to provide 500 million free COVID test kits has hit a hitch, since there is no contract in place to manufacture a single item.
According to the Daily Mail, it is still unknown “how many tests will be instantly accessible or how swiftly they can be mailed out.” If the testing kits are ever created, there will be no website for buying them.
According to Jennifer Nuzzo, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins, “if those tests arrived in January and February, it may have an effect.” “However, if they are stretched out across ten to twelve months, I’m not sure what effect they will have.”
Probably very little, even if kits begin coming in five weeks, which seems unlikely.
Omicron was found on Nov. 24 by South African medical officials, barely 28 days before it peaked in that country.
According to CNN, Ridhwaan Suliman, a senior researcher at the South African Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, his nation has “already past its omicron epidemic peak.”
Suliman characterized the country’s fourth wave as a “steeper wave,” that was “significantly shorter” than those prior, saying in a tweet that it took “about half the number of days to reach the peak compared with previous waves in South Africa.”
According to Suliman, although test positivity remains “still high at 29.8%,” the fact the figure is decreasing confirms “the decline in infections is real and not a testing artifact.”
As of Wednesday, wags around the nation — including Yours Truly — were still debating if omicron killed even one sad person in Texas.
This country’s first omicron case was reported on Dec. 1. If the US follows South Africa’s path of infection, we should reach a climax around New Year’s.
That means it will be weeks, if not months, before a single Joe Biden ApprovedTM COVID testing kit reaches anyone’s home.
Perhaps this is why Nuzzo added to the Daily Mail, “That is not a plan; it is a wish.”
With this in mind, I am pleased to introduce the VodkaPundit Omicron Testing Kit*. Not only is it complimentary, but nobody is required to push anything up your nose.
Unless you’re like that kind of thing. I am not a judge.
