    Even in China when they test the *entire city* the pooled test had a sample sause of only five. Here the positive rate is as high as 8% and companies are using pooled sample size four and dreamed about pool size twenty... Incredible.

I am currently self quarantining, but I only got the test Bc I was lazy and didn’t want to go to work for a day so called in sick and and my boss said if I would have to get a covid test to come back. I thought it was bs but...well...thank god for my laziness ig.

    Oh god. Pool testing, despite its ingenuity is only good for epidemiological data collection and medical statistics purposes. That basically means COVID is so far out of control in the US, the government had essentially given up on accurate and timely tests for individual. Never mind the tracing done in other countries.

    Hey, biomedical scientist here. When Wendover Productions stated their opinion about the high throughput thermal cyclers (which is actually called real time PCR) not being cost effective at doctors offices it was not only a value judgement of human life but also entirely inane since as they point out most testing is done in national labs. A rough estimate for a single COVID-19 test without insurance is clocked in at around $350USD and there are roughly 328 million people in the USA. This means for a grand total of $114,800,000,000USD, or roughly $115 billion dollars, the USA could have achieved infinite testing capacity. Congress spent $2.2 trillion dollar on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES); so in case you're not keeping track at home that means the government spent nearly 20x the tax dollars on treatment that should have been to spent establish meaningful prevention. As doctor's say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure... It would be entirely within the government's power to use the War Powers Act to temporarily assume control of testing companies like Quest and force them to increase output, as well as any manufacturers producing the supplies necessary to perform those tests. Placing blame for the lack of testing on an excuse like lack of resources is not a very genuine argument in a country that has a nearly $20 trillion dollar GDP. Here's the bottom line why you are waiting 2-3 weeks for your test results that Wendover Productions won't tell you. It's personnel shortage. Overall employment of clinical laboratory technologists and technicians is projected to grow 11% from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations, but the number of people graduating with ASCP technician degrees is simply not keeping pace. But it's also because people like me, someone with a 4-year Bachelors of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences, are "unqualified" to perform simple diagnostic testing in many states in the southeast due to the restrictions on who may sit for certifications exams proctored by organizations like the ASCP. The ASCP's Board of certification has stated in response to COVID-19 that, "The BOC is committed to upholding the standards of certification; no changes to eligibility requirements are being made at this time." This statement is absolutely hypocritical in the face of pooled testing. Pooled testing is just another way these organizations are choosing to put your health and safety at risk in order to make more money and continue to be the gatekeepers of the laboratory science industry. So be sure to write the ASCP's Board of Certification a nice letter when you finally receive those test results back 2-3 weeks late for someone in your family that has already died. There are a lot of people to blame for this debacle but simply opening up laboratory certification exams to all graduates with a B.S. from an accredited college would have saved lives, and it still could save lives. Until then I'll keep applying to lab jobs in Texas and other states whose established law permit them to quickly ramp up testing capacity by simply hiring qualified scientists and thus are the labs receiving butt loads of government funding.

      @Shamrock 75% of covid deaths are people over 65 years old. If it was not for the crutch of modern medicine the majority of theses people would have been dead 15 years ago. Covid just needs to run it's course.

    2. Shamrock

      7 maanden geleden

      @britshell I've already said to you the flu is quite deadly e.g the spanish flu which killed millions additionally the reason those plagues and flu don't kill millions of people per year is primarily because we have vaccinations against, of which we don't have for COVID-19. The flu already kills hundreds of thousands per year and this is primarily in the poor regions of Sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia where medicine is scarce and most people are not vaccinated Until we can find a safe, proven vaccine for COVID-19 precautions, light or strict depending on the severity, will need to be taken. I'd rather my grandparents stay alive Herd immunity would also work but that would mean we will need a slow spread of the virus so as not to overwhelm the hospitals and medical centres which means we'll still have to take precautions so we can minimise deaths

    3. britshell
      britshell
      7 maanden geleden

      @Shamrock Those plagues still exist, the mortality rates quoted were with the aid of modern medicine. Covid is high transmission, low mortality just like influenza aka the common flu. As exposed populations develop heard immunity the threat of Covid will disappear.

    4. Shamrock
      Shamrock
      7 maanden geleden

      @britshell the key difference here however is that those plagues were not nearly as contagious and the world wasn't as developed as it is now. What could have taken a plague months to travel from continent to continent took days with COVID-19 thanks to air travel. What makes COVID-19 dangerous is it's incredibly high contagoisness where as SARS-COV-1 had a much higher fatality rate but much lower contagoisness and thus it was stopped before killing even 1,000 people. Same with Ebola, a disease with a very high fatality rate, but bot as contagious and thankfully emerged in a rural area that could be quarentined

    5. britshell
      britshell

      ​@Shamrock The morality rate is actually quite low when compared to other infectious diseases for example; Bubonic plague is fatal in about 15% cases even when treated, Septicaemic plague is 40% fatal with treatment & the Pneumonic plague is 100% fatal, regardless of treatment. So, 6% is not very high.

    Hey Wendover Productions, I was wondering if you take actions to help small channels? Just curious. I’m a new youtuber and my videos are quality but I can’t seem to get any eyes on my content just because I’m a small channel. Thanks

    That segment on pooled testing is incredibly interesting. Great video man!

    There is a problem with pooled testing. The threshold for what is considered a positive test is not just one copy of the genome. Let’s say it’s 10 for an individual swab. Now if you throw 10 tests together into a pool, you’d have to adjust the threshold. If you adjust it linearly, youd end up with a threshold of 100 copies of the gene. Now let’s say 9 of there zests are actually negative and there would be no copies detectable of tested individually, but there is one test that is positive. If this test would have, let’s say, 99 copies of the genome in it, it would end up as a positive test result if individually tested but negative or invalid if pooled. I currently organizing about 2k tests a week for a company and tust me, pooling and these thresholds for what is considered a positive test (by the way they are basically chosen by the lab not the government or WHO) are a real headache.

      In the U.K. , we use the army to help testing so there is no need for private companies
