Thanks for all the information Snaggy.

Is it safe to say the positive test volumes are no longer appropriate to use to determine local infections?

Or safe for now but gradual decline in accuracy due to the issues in reporting?

I think point of care tests are the future, and there may not be mechanism to make sure they’re being reported, not so far. Anytime there’s a form that takes 5 minutes to fill out and fax at a docs office, there’s gonna be fails. The paperwork could be simplified, or the EHR or insurance company could help capture the data. I don’t think that many POC tests are being done at the moment, but Abbot reckons to change that with $5 BiNax. If the associated app were widely adopted by patients, maybe government could pull it off the phones. But that info has always been collected not only for the sake of collecting public health data but as a mechanism to trace subjects and enforce quarantines and treatment compliance. People may not like that part.

Maybe a form gets generated at registration including patient info, the test operator checks pos or neg. info goes to health dept, the chart, and patient gets a digital or paper “passport” to work, travel and socialize.

Abbot could probably sell 10 billion BiNax tests @ $5 each. They have the EUA and are ramping up.

Apparently sewage treatment plants have been fertile ground for discovery too. Viral RNA can be measured and can predict the number of cases in a community a few days later.

Yeah. I’ve posted a few sewage threads in here. I think it’s the direction we should go.

Thanks for the info again
