Same way it helps everywhere else.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Perhaps the discussion of forged documents should stay in the Super Sekrit forums

I would go a step further.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

Why is it a waste if it prevents spread? What would you say about other medical testing/screening and how does this differ?

Some of the test requirements are illogical, a waste of money and effort. Why does TLV require a PCR to fly out of the country? Most countries only have entry requirements.

https://www.cdc.gov/csels/dls/locs/2021/07-21-2021-lab-alert-Changes_CDC_RT-PCR_SARS-CoV-2_Testing_1.htmlAre they stopping all PCR tests Friday?

This is a very specific one, and the first one that was available and EUA-approved in the US in February 2020

They now have PCR tests that can multiplex and test for flu and covid simultaneously.

Just take action and get into the business. Once the money starts pouring in you won't be bothered that much. This isn't masks and sanitizers, you can still make big money.

Was it our recently appointed ambassador to Japan that famously said "never let a good crisis go to waste"?

True, but the FDA isn’t cancelling EUAs for COVID-only ones. Rightfully so, there’s so much testing going on that any single PCR assay won’t do, and the pandemic calls for it. Granted, at this point the testing bottleneck is thermal cycler capacity at CLIA certified-labs. My PCR got sent on Saturday night to Sherman Abrams in Brooklyn, they’re a pretty big lab, and I only got my results tonight (96 hours+ after testing!!)

Did they give any explanation as the why they are withdrawing the EUA request for this one?
