    Why aren't corona virus test kits widely available?

    Same old story: profits before people.

    What's the Truth on the Coronavirus Testing?

    Mar. 12, 2020 2:53 pm
    By Thom Hartmann ...

    After it was widely reported that Tom Hanks and his wife were able to simply walk into a clinic in Australia with the symptoms of a common cold and instantly get a coronavirus test - which was positive - Americans are beginning to ask out loud, "Why can't we get tested?"

    According to President Obama's Ebola Czar (last night on Rachel Maddow's show), Ron Klain, Trump "privatized" the testing here in the United States. Instead of taking the World Health Organization test kits which are cheap and widely available all over the planet, and having them distributed across the country back in December, or January, or February when we knew this disease was spreading in the United States, Klain said that Trump has outsourced the testing to two big American companies, Quest and Labcorp.

    Trump's head of HHS, Alex Azar, is the guy who doubled the price of insulin when he was CEO of Eli Lily company. Do he and Trump own stock in these testing companies? Why are we refusing to accept the WHO test that the entire rest of the world is using? What the hell is going on here?
