Bill Gates says most COVID-19 tests in the US are 'completely garbage' because it takes too long to get results

Bill Gates says there's one massive problem with COVID-19 tests in the US: results take too long to come back.

To solve the problem of slow testing, Gates said medical providers shouldn't receive payment for COVID-19 tests unless they can produce results within 48 hours.

City elections officials were overwhelmed with a flood of vote-by-mail ballots, more than 400,000, or ten times the usual number in a primary.

The envelopes provided to voters to return their ballots were postage-paid, which may have led to incorrect handling and missing postmarks. Late Monday...

Then it is our res...
