Is that reason because scientists get paid by the hour and thus want to make their jobs more inconvenient?
No, if you would actually read the study, I'm pretty sure it's because the study was conducted by convenient samples at the grocery store. I don't think they should be using people's selection of particular types of cured meat or savory snack as an appropriate method of determining who has coronavirus or not, at least not without first determining if certain ethnic groups are biased against pastrami.

I was just making a joke, bro. Settle down. They probably picked a grocery store because everything else in NYC was ordered closed at the time so it was the only place to get a reasonably diverse sample. Or they needed to pick up lunch and we're like "Well, since we're here anyways."

do you get throat swabs now also?

or are they still tickling your brain?
They've pretty much been doing the throat swabs since they were doing the nasopharyngeal swabs.

The places around here just seem to be doing the nasal swabs and the nasopharyngeal swabs.

Nasal is exactly that. Just right in the nasal passages. Very mild. I haven't had that one. Nasopharyngeal is the brain tickler.

5 times now. Standing appt every Wednesday at 10am.
