CDC coronavirus test kits.... I smell a rat.

Here's my concern:

China, Italy, and elsewhere have been able to test hundreds of thousands of patients, and yet we had to wait on the CDC for an officially approved test? And their first release FAILED.

“The great strength the US has always had, not just in virology, is that we’ve always had a wide variety of people and groups working on any given problem,” says Keith Jerome, the head of virology at the University of Washington. . “When we decided all coronavirus testing had to be done by a single entity, even one as outstanding as CDC, we basically gave away our greatest strength.”

Obviously, this monopoly is being controlled by REPUBLICANS, so what does that tell you except that they intend to make megabucks from this situation?

5. Lets face it,

 

we do not have any test kits available. Believe there is a shortage of Reagent that is produced in China. And we are totally screwed as a result.

Not at all surprised, but wanted to read more.

9. I think they tried and failed.

I'm reading that many states are going commando on the tests.
