    Honestly, the less alarming the numbers look, they more they seem to crack down.

    Which only makes me wonder WHY, as it should everyone. WHAT aren't they telling us ??

    It may be simply that as more stringent quarantine processes are implemented, people (being only human) begin to depend upon the bureaucracy to make new careers in positions that may not pay much but are rewarded by authority and even some perks. That is what evolved in various States in the US and us true of people everywhere. Once you build a petty power structure, there is great resistance to bringing it down.

    nice article that explains why exactly the testing of large amounts of non symptomatic people right now is important to determine if we can / should start lifting quarantine measures. also spreads some optimism because things don't appear to be as bad as they seemed few weeks ago, even in the US.

    But Jens, do you think that testing a significant portion of the 130M population is realistic in this country?

    significant would even be, for example, to test couple hundred thousand randomly selected people in the metro manila area, to determine how to proceed there. results and necessary numbers will of course differ a lot depending on where you are. to get an approximation of the real infection rate in dumaguete, a sample of few thousands would be a good start. these are doable numbers, even here. test reliability is an issue of course.

    edit: and by doable I mean, with significant effort compared to what is done now. with current capacities of few hundred tests/day we wont get there of course. But other countries are running tens of thousands of tests per day.

    Exactly why I would never put some Chinese garbage vaccine in my body. Their trash people, culture, society and government can't be trusted with anything you aren't willing to chuck in a landfill within a couple weeks of coming in contact with. Every government in the world would be very wise to cancel all contracts that involve anything more than cheap labor from the country. They simply can't be trusted with anything more than that.

    Not a fan then! Just buy test kits from Taiwan and get on with it. Test, trace and treat.

    There's a missing word here: "public".
