The logic of the ignorant: If you don’t test for something, then you won’t find it. If you don’t find it, then it must not exist. Ergo, making CV-19 “go away” is as easy as ceasing testing for it.

In addition, his math is bad. If we cut testing in half, we wouldn’t necessarily find half as many cases, because testing is still largely driven by symptomatic cases. So the positivity rates would look worse, and people would be pointing out how the high positivity means the US testing is inadequate, and then he’d be bitching that we need to do more tests.
