PCR versus Rapid Antogen tests

We are told the PCR is the Gold standard... which it aint, its crap, certainly at the multiplications they use. And RA tests are not utilised much, but for covid management they would be much much better, and MUCH MUCH MUCH cheaper, and would let us get on with living much quicker.

PCR around $150 and 48hr wait.
RA  about $5, around 20 minutes, and retest in say 24 hours.

Are these peoples heads so far up their corporate tied arses they have oxygen starvation?

Re: PCR versus Rapid Antogen tests

If there was an easy test that you could take daily on your own, this pandemic could be crushed.  Frankly, speed and frequency are more important than 100 percent accuracy.

ERGO the RA test would be the better way to go.
