Oh come on...you can do better than that agenda response. You two had a interesting banter going there and you responded with something so
" mousey"
You should of responded with a word that was misspelled.....you see that allot here....they don't have a good rebuttal so they use the old spelling error line.
The audience is booing and walking away.

Your statement wasn't about catching Covid, your statement was about a positive test result.

If someone survives a symptomatic case of Covid then they very likely developed antibodies. I don't believe the blue line (or whatever the indication is) on the at-home test says the same thing.

Another way to look at it.

Assuming (YMMV) the average cost of a hospital stay at 100K and a per test cost of $5, break even would be saving one hospital stay for every 20,000 tests.

Strange assumption. A test will prevent hospitalization?

Just wondering, on the home test kits do you just pee on them and wait for the results or what?

Just kidding.........

Omicron infection rate has been reported to be up to 70 fold greater.

If 30% of people positive self isolate, what's the impact on infection rate?

And then hospitalization?

Funny, but after I had Covid (waaaaay back at the end of February 2020, with minimal symptoms), there were no tests available, unless you had a fever of 101° , or trouble breathing, neither of which applied to me...), I took an antibody test when they first became available (about 2-3 months later)...

The lab tech (who's upstairs in my building and knows me), hand carried the test results to me in my office (I was the first case they'd seen, and they were excited to let me know).

I called my wife to let her know. I said, "I got the test results... I'm pregnant!"

Well, as far as we (spouse and myself) you can give our 16 test kits to the hospital. I think the medical professionals need it more than we do. If we think we have the dreaded Covid, we will seek medical assistance. It won't do me any good to self test if I have some form of illness with some type of crippling symptoms. I've had my shots, will not be traveling or cruising or employed and if anyone wishes to visit me, they can take their chances that we are not infected.
