I read this morning in the Boston Globe that none of the 80 players on the New England Patriots has tested positive for coronavirus during 28 days of continual testing thus far. I’m sure that such testing is being done for all the professional sports teams in the US.

So explain to me why we can’t have daily testing and immediate results—or even testing by appointment with immediate results—for the general population?

    This is an excellent question, Alan. My first thought is that the general population doesn’t access to that type of testing because we can’t run the ’40’ in 4.3 seconds, hit a 98 MPH fastball 450 feet or nail a 3-pointer at the buzzer. For some odd reason, selling vital goods and services, providing a fine-dining experience or generally keeping the money flowing through the economy isn’t as important.

    I guess this is the new America….
