Researchers to test all residents of one California town for coronavirus

Researchers in a town in northern California have decided to test all of its residents for the novel coronavirus. Bolinas is home to some 1,600 people. This is one of the first such efforts in the United States since the pandemic hit the country. Researchers also said that the townsfolk would also be tested for antibodies. Researchers hope it will help them understand how widespread COVID-19 is.

Are they demanding that everyone be tested using the law? If so, that's illegal. If it's voluntary, then that's great. But you can't force people into any kind of test or the such

It just came out recently that the CDC was testing people with faulty testing kits that were contaminated with the virus itself. I don't know if I trust the government swabbing my mouth by force either by intent or incompetence they might end up giving me the virus.

Calling it right now. Unless the town has a ton of elderly folks, it will show that COVID is more infectious than the flu but it has a similar mortality rate.

(See headline.) (Pictures small rural town of people getting by and thinking about how important it is to do antibodies testing, but also understands the importance of not infringing people's natural rights.) (Clicks article.) 'Wealthy Bay area...' THOSE RICH (mild expletive that I can't post on this app - without red tape) !
