I think that in 3 months we've kinda seen where the negative test thing is going. Regardless of whether it is dangerous or not (humiliating/psychological/physical damaging at least) it is not the plan that the negative test continues. They're just phasing it out and it was a middle step towards full vaccination requirement. The leap towards that was too big to take in once. We see this movement clearly now, e.g. in the UK and NYC.Hey everyone,
I'm skeptical about the covid-19 test. My only reason for being skeptical is that they are actually allowing proof of a negative test to be able to travel. To me, it would make more sense for them to eliminate that option in order to generate an incentive/punishment to get people vaccinated. So the fact that they are allowing people to get a negative test (something that has a modicum of rationality about it) makes me skeptical that there is something on the test swab that is nefarious. I am contemplating a trip and wonder if I should get that swab. Do any of you have other reason or evidence to suspect that it is dangerous to get the swab?
