For all the soothsayers of following science and stating numbers don't lie... I give you the two finger salute! Here ia a condenced summation of proper action gone wrong. BBC Panorama Covid Testing, April 2021. Nobody was prepared and under haste, it made a lot of waste. Yet people believe in good faith, that science knows how to get us through tough times. Without proper implementation science might as well come from a monkey. It has taken over a year, yet only 70% corrected at best. Though nothing since recording is accurate enough to justify actions taken or given though Corona.

Expedited with each measure
Labs under great pressure
Incompetency from a fester
Words taken from a tester

Students now considered pros

The strained seem untrained
Processes are so deranged
Degraded or contaminated
From pipette now infiltrated

Mad slime from a nose

Measures in cutting cost
Efficiency is now lost
Accuracy to be tossed
Instead, being embossed

Mandated funding he chose

False positives out number
Never questioned by the counter
Oversight now a misnomer
Only checked by informer

Johnson smelling of a rose

Ha! So we can call him Rosey Johnson, aye? Some how that does not sound so nicey. Ha!

Just got back from the hospital, me doc sez... Corona testing is inconclusive, because the common cold can trigger a false positive. Just too much weight on 50/50 iffy testing. To add human error just makes it even more over blown. She don't trust lab work done by 3rd party providers. They were so un-equipped to deal with demands set upon them. Quick results from massive testing is asking for trouble. If the data was to convict a serial killer, they would end up walking. Some politicians just don't get how many will assume protection when nobody is protected. There is no true immunity from vaccinations, just helps with limits to how many will need hospitalization when they do get Corona.
