(RoyalPatriot.com )- This week the Food and Drug Administration authorized a new rapid at-home COVID-19 test kit.
Let’s hope this one is more accurate than the last bunch…
Authorities believe that the production of the tests will double over the coming weeks, making it easier for people to test twice weekly to avoid being made to take the vaccine. Under the recent vaccine mandate law implemented without the consent of Congress by President Joe Biden, employees may opt to test for COVID-19 infection twice weekly to avoid taking the vaccine…assuming that their employer doesn’t choose to just fire them anyway.
FDA official Jeff Shuren said that ACON Laboratories expects to produce over 100 million at-home tests every month by the end of the year, and 200 million per month by February.
Ask yourself…did you think we’d be taking precautions like this in February of 2022 when the vaccine is already available?
Surely this isn’t right.
The move comes after months of pressure on the Biden administration to ramp up the production of at-home testing kits. The White House, however, appears to have been reluctant to make the move, potentially over fears that it might make life easier for people who don’t want the vaccine.
Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra has been lobbied by multiple senators from both parties to increase availability of the tests, including failed vice-presidential candidate Senator Tim Kaine.
Jeff Shuren said that investing in the production of the new tests will also drive more tests in the marketplace, meaning we’re likely to see tests become cheaper and more widely available through the end of the year and beyond.
