ICYMI: Vaccinations and T-cell Tests Are Needed to Fight COVID Variant
(Washington, D.C., June 30, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. appeared on FOX Business to discuss the emerging COVID-19 Delta variant, ongoing mask mandates, and the importance of T-cell tests in future research saying in part,
“Certainly this Delta variant spreads quicker, easier. But they’re arguing back and forth if it’s more lethal. Probably the best news I can tell you is if you have already had the COVID virus that’s really good protection for you from any type of a serious sequela from this Delta variant, and we think our vaccinations have reasonable protection as well… We’re so close to herd immunity. Just encourage people to go get the vaccination. We also need something called a T-cell test. The T-cell test would tell you if you have already had the virus… The FDA is holding up this test, for what reasons I don’t know. It’s approved in Great Britain and Europe. And they just tell me they don’t have enough oxygen in the room to see if it’s worthwhile or not, but a T-cell test would be very helpful.”
