"The money is in the testing, not the vaccine, or treatment..."

And this is likely the future of $$$ in "medicine"

This article paints the clearest picture yet of the COVID endgame to me...

The more I think about it, what is even the point of testing?? There's practically nothing you can do with that knowledge besides isolate yourself....and then what?

Cue has shifted its marketing to focus on Covid only but the hubs were really designed to test for other things as well.

I've been using it for over a year now and the convenience is great. I can just run a test while I'm doing other things around the house. I still get about a 7% failure rate where the test kit fucks up but they replace those for free so idc.

It's a nice system for sure but there's no way I'd pay for these things out of pocket.

but once hubs and subscriptions become the ONLY way...or the PREFERRED way...the gap between the healthy and sick and the ability for the sick to get quality care is going to widen even further.

It's already bad enough that my PCP won't even do labwork in house anymore....

We have the cue, wife's job gave it to her, and we test a lot.

I tested negative on Monday, felt crummy on Tuesday, tested positive on Wednesday. Immediately allowed me to isolate and keep the keeps from getting it.

BTW...i'm not knocking testing... i'm frustrated at the pace of testing technology exceeding the pace of vaccine development. It's like more innovation is happening on the testing front than the treatment front.... when wearing my Tin Hat, I can only conclude that it's by design. COVID is the new "common cold" and instead of coming up to drugs to treat and not cure...they've discovered it's easier just to come up with tests and not even bother with creating the drugs to treat or cure.

easier to test for something than to cure it or create a vaccine. It is literally AMAZING that multiple effective vaccines were able to be developed as quickly as they did. But a test is much, much more simple. That doesn’t mean they are sitting in their hands re: more vaccines and treatments. Moderna just announced yesterday the effectiveness of a new Omicron vaccine. There are a tone of new treatments available now as well.

There’s money in ALL of this stuff.
