Less testing for the virus is meaning more Americans dying. Is there anyway we can buy more tests from other countries?

    Hardly.

    Testing only shows that a person might have, (presumed they do have) the Virus in their body.

    Testing does NOT mean a "Positive" will actually be hospitalized. (95% of those on ventilators will die.)

    Hospitalization does prove that the person is Sick.

    Many a Celebrity view testing "positive" is an elite thingy. A FAD for many, some even fake it (Cuomo).

    Testing is really only helpful for contact tracing and for medical people to know what their patients have. More people will die the more everyone ignores the rules of wearing a mask, socially distancing and washing their hands. The control of this virus is not up to the government or the medial establishment but to us as responsible citizens.

    People who experience severe symptoms will or should go to the Er whether they’ve tested positive or not.  People should assume that everyone else,  they come into contact with,  is positive and act accordingly.  And just because you test negative today, doesn’t mean you won’t test positive tomorrow.  I don’t see how testing changes the death rate...please explain.
