FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): An ongoing shortage is limiting COVID-19 tests in Allen County again.

After announcing on January 4th that they would be limiting rapid tests to those 18 and younger as well as symptomatic individuals 50 and older, now the Allen County Health Department says rapid tests won’t be offered at all at their public testing site at 5750 Falls Drive in Fort Wayne starting Tuesday, Jan. 18th, due to a state shortage.

Rapid tests will be given today to those who qualify while supplies last, and the slower PCR tests will still be available to anyone, regardless of age or symptoms. Those tests usually take 3 to 5 days before results are available.

There are almost 30 testing sites elsewhere in Allen County, and more than 650 throughout the state.

The tests are fatally flawed! They are rigged to give positive tests. Some are over sampled that even the inventor says is WRONG to do. Why would a healthy person,showing no signs of sickness go and get one of these tests. It seems the best thing that could happen is to get Omicron. It is mild and would then give you natural immunity. Besides the “vaccines” aren’t working on Omicron. Read “The Real Anthony Fauci” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Your eyes will be opened and pitchforks will quickly be out of stock at the farm and fleet. If you don’t have time to read it or can’t afford the book go to the Amazon web page for the book and read the reviews and comments. Take your blood pressure meds first.
