Testing - Derek Hardballs - 03-26-2020

Startling figures on QT that Germany are now testing 500,000 per week we have tested 90,000 in total.

Germany is more of an outlier though. Other European countries struggling to test to that degree eg France, Spain, Ireland etc
Italy only 150,000 a few days ago despite extent of outbreak - fairer to compare across a number of states

I cannot but wonder how they have managed to do that ?

They have the infrastructure to handle it. We do not.


RE: Testing - DAVE - 03-26-2020

We have the best infrastructure in the world, almost all elements of primary and community healthcare under government control. We don’t have the tests nor a government prepared to pay the market rate.


RE: Testing - MassDebater - 03-26-2020

Wonder where the 500k figure has come from? All current online reports that I found (including one from today) say 160k max per week...

Then again we should be ramping up a lot next week too and China are apparently send 50k test kits to Europe as well.

This article (from today) goes into more detail about Germany and why it seems to be doing better than most places (spoiler, typically younger people are infected and they don't tend to die...) https://www.wired.co.uk/article/germany-coronavirus-death-rate

GERMAN EFFICIENCY KLAXON


RE: Testing - Tom Joad - 03-27-2020

Those 160,000 tests a week the Germans carry out? Are the kits made in Germany, by any chance? If we learn anything from this pandemic, it should be that we need a strong manufacturing industry.
