If this type of testing is repeated in the future, would the teachers who are back in the classroom be considered front line workers?

Notice there is no population testing yet?

The reality is that we do not know who has COVID in the general public until they come down with symptoms.

The REALITY is that the tests are under counting because of both the people being tested and the delay in testing reagents and labs.

This is NOT controlling the Virus, it is behind the virus as much as 14 days given that it can take that long to see a person get symptoms enough to report to the hospital and get tested.

These are SCIENTIFIC facts.

In fact the waste of efforts just in trying to get testing done and not getting any new medicines to treat it or getting a vaccine developed.

We are in the beginning of what we experienced with Polio, and that took as much as 10 years to get a vaccine. Fortunately Polio didn't occur now, it would have killed millions more and disabled more millions. During Polio the majority of people didn't have cars, nor used busing and trains, let alone planes.

What happened to the excellence of private sector healthcare?
