COVID Testing Mania, is This Mass Psychosis?

Friends, this stuff baffles me on many levels.   All around the nation various local media outlets are reporting on this massive influx of people getting tested, or trying to get tested, for COVID-19.  Miles and miles of people suddenly lining up for COVID tests everywhere, it’s weird.

The media is pushing the testing aspect hard right now and hitting the Biden administration for not having a federal system in place to facilitate this massive influx of people needing COVID tests.  Without a doubt, that narrative is why Biden told the media today the states have to solve the issue on their own. [More on that later]

In the interim, I asked the question on the Twitter about why people would be lining up for hours to get a COVID test now. What’s the reason?   Most of the responses are generally of the same mindset as the original question with people also wondering why.  I can identify only a few generally valid reasons, and even then, something still doesn’t make sense.

♦ Some people are required to take a test for work, and with the mandates now beginning to kick in, that seems to make sense.  However, does this mean people have to stand in line for hours before every shift?  [feel free to chime in on this one]

♦ Some people are required to take a test to travel to a destination that requires a negative test.  Again, that seems to make sense, I guess.  However, it still seems silly from the perspective of testing is unlikely to stop any infection that can happen at any given moment.

Other than ‘being required’ to take a test for the two reasons above, why would anyone take one?

Why would perfectly healthy people, asymptomatic people, line up to take a COVID test?   Is this a reflection of mass delusion as a result of government and media driven fear?

Seriously, what gives?

This response from the line in Orlando, Florida seems nuts:

“Well, I’m heading out of town to Kentucky to visit some family, and I hear omicron has really picked up and is spreading pretty fast,” Orange County resident Dave Roseford said. “So I wanted to go ahead and make sure I had the best guard against that.” (link)

So ‘Dave’ is not sick, doesn’t feel sick, is going to visit people 500 miles away, and wants to find out if he’s COVID positive?   Because why?…

Then there’s this response, which is even more nuts, but I appreciate the brutal honesty:

“I can answer this because I live in the Lib Death Star known as Brownstone Brooklyn. They are doing this to tell friends and family whether they are ‘safe’ to be around. It’s an elaborate handshake among the Covidians.” (link)

The White House previously attempted to gain some political advantage with the COVID Omicron panic by declaring “a winter of death” awaits the unvaccinated.  It appears to me this administration is now going to reap a massive amount of backlash over a panic they created.   Once again proving the axiom that every statement, policy or recommendation, that Joe Biden advocates is the exact opposite of what should be done.

The White House has ordered 500 million test kits for them to distribute saying, “In cases where infected people show symptoms or not, testing is the only way to find out if they have the virus so they can avoid being out and about and potentially spreading the disease.”  This would imply the only reason to test is to find out if you are infected, yet if you are asymptomatic (not showing symptoms) then why test?

Could it be the hysteria cannot remain in place if there isn’t a new layer of fear of some sort?  As Jordan Schachtel notes: ” COVID cases are the engine of COVID Mania. Take away the testing, and the “crisis” disappears. See: every single nation in the world that doesn’t test widely for COVID. They’re doing just fine with the “plague” issue.” 

Let me ask you, what’s going on around your town? 

Is this madness and ‘Winter of Death‘ hysteria visible around where you live also?
