COVID Sucks, People Don't

Shifting from running zero COVID tests to running millions is not a simple process, but a lot of people have mobilized to make it happen. A few weeks ago I got the chance to talk with Fred Turner from Curative about how they went from a company with just a few employees running a variety of tests to a company with hundreds focused entirely on COVID testing. This conversation really helped me feel a bit better about our situation.

Destin Sandlin is, in his normal jobs, an engineer and a content creator. But for the last couple months, he has become a community organizer and logistics expert making and distributing PPE with a network of hundreds of volunteers.

Vi Hart is a mathematician and technologist and she has been working (with many other experts) on a report called "The Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience." She absolutely schools me on how bluetooth tracking and contact tracing actually works. And she also makes it clear that right now isn't a time for picking one strategy, it's a time for exploring all of them without knowing for sure which ones are going to be most helpful. 

But one thing's for sure, all of this would be much harder if it happened even ten years ago.
