    I think you may be confused.

    They initially adapted RT-PCR tests that looked for the “E” gene shared by all beta corona viruses. Different labs in different countries then targeted different genes only found in SARS-CoV-2. Most target the RdRP gene. These targeted tests have been around since early January in Australia when they sequenced the virus and grew it at the Peter Doherty institute.

    Only recently they have created Antibody tests. This test doesn’t test for the presence of the virus itself but for the bodies response to the virus - typically the IgM and the IgG antibodies. This is helpful in determining if you have had the virus.

    On a positive note. Pneumonia deaths in USA have dropped off a cliff since COVID-19 took over.

    The "Vaccination Passport" that's currently being reported on in the news isn't a new idea. The idea was first discussed by the EU in 2017. Their timeline for implementation was 2019-2021.

    7 News reported it as a new idea in response to COVID-19.

    Sorry I can see your point there now. It's like blaming the coronavirus for the collapse in the economy. Large parts of the economy was sick and would have died anyway.

    That really just says it all, doesn’t it!
    No wonder they’re only interested in tested direct links and pneumonia like symptoms. Gotta findem some how
