The demand for coronavirus testing for Chinese passengers is mistaken

Biden administration has implemented travel restrictions for people arriving from China. The concern isn’t about an existing strain; it’s about new ones emerging. He says we should want more travelers from China so we can study new strains that might develop there. Pre-departure testing of travelers from China for coronavirus doesn’t make sense, Dr. Anthony Fauci says. The goal should be to quickly identify emerging variants of concern, he says. Travelers can choose to take tests anonymously once they arrive in the U.S., and N95 masks should be required for all.
