AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There’s no escaping our performance on crushing Covid is attributable to Trump & TrumpsGOP. By acting too slow to Shutdown the country, by making a mockery of science, they did a disservice to Americans. More than 50,0000 Lives would have been saved. Our Healthcare that Trump has degraded & de funded along with all scientific research, has a left families suffering from poor health . What have we gained under Trumps Presidency?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Dr Fauci says we have to do more to get kids back to school. That means crushing the virus with Rapid Testing in everyone’s home. Adherence to mask wearing & social distancing, affordable safe child care, WIFI & computers for every student in need. This is necessary infrastructure. When can Americans expect these funds. ? Plus PPE’s and sanitizers. The minimum

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Simple Covid Test, that I and many others have advocated, for the Public , are to be purchased by the Rockefeller Foundation for 6 bi partisan States, to be announced by Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland & including Va & Michigan. They’ll purchase 1/2 million tests from BD & Quidel. It is hoped all the States will participate.Rapid testing, results in 15 minutes, is the only way to stop the Outbreaks. Have a blessed day.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce All Antonin virals with efficacy should be encouraged & developed. It’s magical thinking to expect a vaccine to be a magic cure all. Everyone on our Planet must be vaccinated. Covid 19 would have to be eradicated for 100% protection from this infection. It’s far smarter to test our way out of this infection using the Simple Cheap Frequent Covid Saliva Tedt in every population. This is one issue the World can unite around; the preservation of life and our Societies. We’ll need every tool at our disposal to eliminate Covid & the next microbe to cause a Pandemic. This is not a one time effect. There’ll be many threats to our Societies until we change our lifestyles and allow Nature to thrive along with us!

Opinion | Scared That Covid-19 Immunity Won’t Last? Don’t Be – The New York Times & an Israeli Nobel Laureate agree, the vaccine will be effective and everyone should take it. I was wrong about the science when, I assumed it was the antibodies we produced were important. It isn’t, our immune response to the virus protects us. That’s all that matters. After listening o the experts, I’m convinced & have no fear of taking the vaccine when available.

Dropping antibody counts aren’t a sign that our immune system is failing against the coronavirus, nor an omen that we can’t develop a viable vaccine. — Read on http://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/31/opinion/coronavirus-antibodies-immunity.html AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Allow rapid testing for all Americans in their homes on a daily basis . It’s available & cheap $1/day, easy , like SalivaDirect or Rutgers or Abbott Labs ? Approve for everyone, scaling up may cost $5.4 Billion. Prevents Putbreaks, tests those asymptomatic, easy to trace contacts in 24 hours, Game Changer. Open schools & economy. Healthy go out and those testing positive stay home. Better outcomes. Pooling of tests can be accomplished, too!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Pooling of tests in the States with Low infections would work and increase the numbers tested. However, in States with high rates of infection, we still require more testing on an individual basis. As Americans lose control over virus deaths, it’s not to late to introduce a Universal 3 week lockdown to stop viral spread and to introduce the simple cheap in home tests. Masks and social distancing SavesLives. It’s a fact along with constant hand washing. We’re not fighting freedom, we’re fighting a virus that has no boundaries. Be well & stay safe.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Leading assistant Secretary of HHS supports frequent alternative testing to mitigate and crush this virus. They are considering batch testing in Scolld and Universities to detect the virus early. In a clinical setting you want perfection. To prevent the virus from spreading in the general population you need less accurate and more frequent inexpensive test sing and tracing . It’s the only way to stop viral spread. SalivaDirect is one test. There are 15 others in development. Cheaper faster and easier with results in minutes will save lives and. Our Economy. It is the right way to think. Just like Government & clinicians have found that early masking , though not perfect would have saved lives. “The perfect is the enemy of the “good”. Finally, I feel hopeful we’ll oversee this virus and thrive!
