Private island off Florida buys thousands of coronavirus tests

Fisher Island, a luxury private island located off Miami, has purchased thousands of rapid COVID-19 blood test kits from the University of Miami Health System. The private island made a deal with the hospital system to produce the test kits for its more than 800 families, employees who maintain the property and those who patrol its streets. Only one percent of Florida has been tested for COVID-19.

Shouldn't be allowed if there's a shortage. If grocery stores can limit how many rolls of TP you can buy at once, then they should have same restrictions as everyone else in regards to test kits. If they can afford it they should put the same amount of money into replacement kits.

This could possibly be surprising? We see this same behavior in ever facet of life. What will surprise me is the day when we all stand up and say NO MORE.

Is anyone really shocked? Money has always created inequality despite what may be fair socially, this just another depressing example.
