US states are using 37-40 cycles of amplification - meaning they are driving virus levels in their samples up 100-1000 times as high as the German standard. To put it mildly, this is not a trivial difference.
This should be a front-page story, day after day. The number of positive tests has driven so much of our response to the ro.

Imagine if @nytimes etc treated this with half the seriousness with which they treated the USPS “scandal” (which seems to have disappeared, btw)...
Instead the Times wrote one piece (a good piece, even if it was in the context of demanding even MORE testing), which the rest of the media has largely ignored. The Times sets the agenda! But not this time.
