Subject: Chinese Invent New Covid Test - No More Nasal Swabs

Written By: LyricBoy on 01/27/21 at 6:56 pm

Researchers in Red China have come up with a new Covid test as an alternative to the awkward nasal swab, where a 5” swab is jammed up your nose.

Doctors there determined that anal is better than nasal. Swabs, that is...

Over the last few months it has been reported that COVID-19 has been detected in sewage.

So I can understand it, but I would still prefer the nasal swab...

In many other countries they would check a child’s temperature using a thermometer inserted anally. I know this method is used in China (from a research talk I went to, not personal experience), so it probably seems not unusual to them.

People like me and my mom who have slow bowels might take a week for infected poop to make its way to the butthole. Besides, why not just give a stool sample?

I guess in principle it’s better than being exposed to the infected person’s uncovered face. But I don’t think it’s an accurate option.

Would be interesting to see how they’d do this at one of those drive-up testing centers.

Pull down your pants like Beavis and shout “Peekaboo!!!”

But with my history I’ve given more stool samples than I can count. Easier than doing something invasive.

I had some sort of testing that was being done a few years ago, and the doc gave me one of those plastic stool sample bottles. Just for kicks I filled it all the way to the brim, packed it all down real tightly and then smoothed off the top before putting the cap back on.

Wish I coulda been there when the test lab opened that thing up.  ;D ;D

Only makes sense if you can detect meaningful levels of the virus in your ear.
