Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
herd immunity UPDATE!
The new testing policy, which goes into effect early next week, will require international air travelers to present a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours of their flight, regardless of vaccination status or nationality.
The Biden administration plans to issue guidance allowing the more than 150 million Americans with private health insurance to be reimbursed for at-home COVID-19 diagnostic tests. ... to distribute an additional 25 million free tests to community sites in order to expand access to at-home tests in underserved communities.
Monica Gandhi, an infectious diseases expert at the University of California, San Francisco, said enhanced testing [MANDATES] make sense from a political perspective, but not necessarily from a public health one, because current tests are imperfect -- they're either too sensitive, or not sensitive enough.  

"I think the administration wants to look like they're 'cracking down.' That's because we have lower vaccination rates than many countries of our income level," Gandhi said.
