I’m just spitballing here, but I bet you’d do a spit take if I told you our Covid-19 testing just needs a little spit and polish to become the spitting image of an actually effective program. Does America still have enough spit and vinegar to get that done? When I finally spit it out, the answer may have you drooling. Or more accurately, dribbling. ESPN: Saliva-based coronavirus test funded by NBA, NBPA gets emergency authorization from FDA. OMG. In full words, here’s what that means. “The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency authorization on Saturday allowing public use of a saliva-based test for the coronavirus developed at Yale University and funded by the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association. The test, known as SalivaDirect, is designed for widespread public screening.” It’s not a slam dunk, but it’s something.
