(RightWing.org) – A new test could make a huge difference in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Designed so people can use it themselves and get results quickly, it could speed up testing dramatically and make it much easier for people to get on with their lives without risking passing it on.
On Tuesday, November 17, the FDA announced that it had approved the COVID-19 All-In-One Test Kit, produced by California-based startup Lucira Health. The test is unique because it’s completely self-administered – it doesn’t need support from medical professionals or testing labs. Users simply take a nasal swab, put it in a vial and place it in a test unit; it provides a result in about half an hour.

With a simple test kit available, there’s even less justification for the sorts of destructive lockdowns currently being pushed by Democrats. The Lucira kit should go on sale in California and Florida soon, with a roll-out across the rest of the country early next year. It’s expected to cost around $50 per test.
