Why are these lunatics treating covid tests like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket?
The Daily Mail reports that the Biden administration struck a $137 million deal to build a new factory in the U.S. to ramp up production of Covid-19 testing kits – but the new facility won’t be completed until late 2024 at the earliest.
While the contract gives the company three years to complete the facility, it is not immediately clear when it will be at full production, which is expected to pump out 83.3 million tests per month.
The deal has fueled speculation that the administration is predicting high rates of testing capabilities for coronavirus detection will still be needed several years down the line.
Others have pointed out that the deal does not fix any immediate issues rising from testing kit shortages in the U.S., which has led to massive wait times at testing locations across the country.
