NY’s missed testing opportunity

NY’s antibody testing program is highly commendable … and, it’’s already generating some very useful data.

But, I wonder..

Why aren’t they swabbing the same people for coronavirus diagnostic tests?

Doing so would tell us how many asymptomatic “hidden carriers” are currently in circulation.

My view: that’s one of the most important pieces of missing information … especially if it’s done on a periodic basis, say, weekly.

Would give us a good sense of how infectious the population is right now.
