TheVoiceOfJoyce Colleges & Schools can’t reopen if Covid is their Community. To prevent outbreaks use RapidTests (SalivaTests) like Harvard’s , Rutgers, BD, Quidel results in 10-15 min. Perdue is testing everyone, NBA funded Harvard’s test. Athletes can’t afford to get Covid, it affects their cardio pulmonary functions. Be wise. Test everyone or go virtual! We have the means to defeat Covid, is there willingness?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Since the Mayor is using RapidTests in Sunset Park & Park Slope in Brooklyn & parts of the Bronx , why not make these tests available to all students and teachers and staff? It may cost a few million ( $3 million?)for tests twice a week & peace of mind for everyone. We’ll stop the Outbreaks and be able to resume our lives.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce If you’re wealthy, Live in LA school district or a NYC hot spot , RapidTests are available. Release them to the entire population. Harvard’s strip test costs a $1 a day. Only RapidTests requiring a device costs a little extra. Not what they’re charging , because the Quidel or BD machine cost around $9000. Why only the rich or emergencies, they work, we should all have testing at home and Stop Outbreaks and find the virus before it spreads.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There’s an old saying, a carpenter only sees a nail. Trump only sees money for him & friends. Opening up the Arctic to drilling is the worst idea of many. Does he anticipate Fire Tornadoes as the earth warms or more Carbon Emissions? No only cash. No planning. What did he envision when he had no plan either for the Covid Pandemic? Shouldn’t we solve one problem first, before rushing to create another? Disturbing Nature has no good outcomes. That’s why Covid is the first of many Pandemics. Why can’t he control his worst instincts? It’s not easy, but doable , when you care about consequences.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There are RapidSalivaTests that are faster than SalivaDirect! Harvard has sponsored RapidTests as well. Results in 15 minutes. No School should reopen account to virologists if Covid is raging in ourCommunities. These RapidTests should be in all our homes, in schools and work. They detect the virus when people are infectious and asymptomatic. Outbreaks can be controlled and the sick can be quarantined! These tests are GameChangers

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I support RapidTests.Org. Please support a Federal Program of RapidSalivaTests & #StopCovidOutbreaks. How?

Dear supporters of Rapid Tests,Some of you may have heard the news that the FDA approved SalivaDirect for PCR testing. This is a positive development, but by itself it will fall short of the widespread screening we would need to reopen schools and offices.First the good news: SalivaDirect offers improvements over the type of testing … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I support RapidTests.Org. Please support a Federal Program of RapidSalivaTests & #StopCovidOutbreaks. How?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why are we allowing Covid to cause a disproportionately large number of deaths in the Latino, African American, Native Americans, & elderly, when we have the Rapid Salive tests ready for production at Yale, Harvard, BD , Quidel, Sherlock Industries , Rutgers, 25 BioSciences. We the People need minor cash to prevent these deaths, why aren’t they available to the population. It’s only a $1/day and we save lives, stop outbreaks & resume living. The sick stay home and the healthy are out!!!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce It isn’t proven yet, however, in a population with a high incidence of infection, the virus is active & viable in the air. It makes sense that the virus remains in the air. At greater distances than 6 ft. We know it’s carried by pollutants. Only Lockdown totally Nationally &/or RapidTests can help contain this virus to allow us to resume our lives. Then we’ll prepare for the next one and Pollution control.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Finally, the Scientists agree it’s time to use the Rapid Tests. They cost a $1 a day and should be deployed for our Entire population. You stop the Outbreaks. They’re simple to read and the healthy can lead “normal lives”, with masks & social distancing. The best part, the infections are caught early. Invest now and the Public can be using them in Mid September without losing out on the in school experience.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Trump & lack of a National testing & containment policy has led directly to the deaths of Americans . It’s time for Governors to convene and purchase & approve the use of the simple cheap in your home saliva test with results in 15 min. Check out Yale & Rutgers and others. Only testing, tracing, masks, self tans social distancing can save our kids and Society. The next method would be 3 weeks of Nationwide Lockdowns. Your choice, we’re losing this battle & our options
