  1. We’ve provisionally ordered 17.5 million unit of something that doesnt exist yet?

  2. Stupid title, doctors and scientists should be idientifying this, world leaders mostly dont know shit from shingles.

  3. I am not sure the World Leaders are medically trained?

  4. As an antibody test manufacturer, I’m very surprised by this. What is the testing methodology they are following when assessing these tests?

  5. Tbh I hope scientist identify the antibody tests and not our world leaders because most of them aren‘t even capable of basic human decency right now…

  6. The idea behind this is to allow people who are immune to return back to work.

    Which fails way earlier than “we have no reliable way of testing”.

    Namely: We don’t know if a prior infection immunizes us.

  7. Well I would trust trump to test for anti bodies either… (title joke)

  8. Well they’re politicians not scientist’s… Fuck we expecting them to do lol…

  9. There are not many actual leaders.

    Just Alpha Sociopaths in positions of power.

  10. Holy shit. The immunity passport thing is straight out of Contagion.

  11. You should change the title to say “world leaders have failed to identify a single CHINESE coronavirus test which works” and get 12 times more upvotes tbh

  12. I would like to be a fly on the wall at Elizabeth Holmes right now.

  13. There is a big difference between false positives and false negatives.

    If you only have false negatives even a 10% accurate test will be useful (to those 10% of people known to have antibodies at least). Of course more accurate is better, but you can only use what exists, this virus is still young as are mass produced self administered antibody tests.

  14. No one is getting “back to work” until they find one. Containment was a misery failure for most countries. It’s in the global wild now.

  15. World leaders tend not to have the skills to do such things, despite making claims for them xD

  16. Good thing Boris the genius bought 3.5 million of these tests. He is so smart ask anyone in the UK threads they will tell you.
