Ex-World Bank economist pushes $100B plan to test everyone in US every 2 weeks for coronavirus

Sharing is Caring!

So this is the plan:

Everyone in the US getting tested every 2 weeks is being pitched as the “solution” to getting folks back to work.

Paul Romer, the former chief economist of the World Bank and a Nobel laureate, released a plan Thursday advocating the government spend $100 billion dollars annually to test every person biweekly for the coronavirus in an effort to reopen the economy.

“Until a vaccine is developed and deployed, the simplest and safest path to this outcome is a national testing strategy that marshals our existing resources to test everyone in the U.S. once every two weeks and isolates all those who test positive,” Romer’s plan reads.
