Dr. Mina has an enlightening message about the power of cheaper tests. They may not be as sensitive as the PCR tests now, but if every American could be tested affordably every day, the pandemic can quickly come under control. Malcolm Gladwell calls Dr. Mina’s idea “the best and smartest and most helpful” thing he has encountered since COVID began.
