Biden Administration to Supply More Free COVID Antigen Tests

The good news is Monday, September 25, you can go to and request four free tests. While I would like to see a much larger program, along with free N95 masks, it’s something at least. One reason the Biden administration is doing this is because they want to keep production lines rolling so test manufacturers don’t go out of business.

That said, they also must realize that the soft denial of reality just isn’t going to work–and now that federal public health officials are admitting that long COVID is a real, quantifiable problem, they have to do something besides encouraging vaccination.

The other thing to note is, if the demand is there, they might do a second round of requests, so stick the site in a bookmark and request your tests

COVID and Economic Pessimism

Economist Claudia Sahm, both at Substack and Bloomberg, makes the argument that COVID is to blame for poor consumer sentiment. From Bloomberg:

Lots of reasons have been given for the gloominess, including political partisanship, the media’s focus on negative news stories and bad “vibes” in general. There’s another, less talked about but more likely explanation for the disconnect: Covid-19 itself. The timing is clear, sentiment plunged at the start of the pandemic but failed to rebound when the economy re-opened and snapped back. In terms of sentiment, the pandemic caused a sudden increase in pessimism that hasn’t gone away…

The question is, how long will this Covid-19 pessimism last? Prominent economic disruptions in the pandemic, like global supply chains and labor shortages, are basically back to normal. But that’s the economics. Sentiment has a broader lens, and so far the extra pessimism from the pandemic persists. And with Covid-19 cases rising once again, it may not end anytime soon.

I don’t think this can be downplayed at all. While a disproportionate amount of attention is paid to the fraction of U.S.-ians who are full-out COVID minimizers, they’re not the majority. Many people are either taking COVID precautions, or suspect they should be, but aren’t because ‘people aren’t doing that anymore.’ For these two groups respectively, COVID is just something they have to deal with or something lurking in the background, but which isn’t going away.

To put this another way: if a vaccine that conferred broad, highly effective immunity to COVID and which essentially made long COVID an incredibly rare event were released, does anyone doubt that various indices of consumer sentiment would improve (at least for a few months)? Of course they would. If nothing else, a subset of people would feel more comfortable consuming things (dining in restaurants, going to theaters, traveling).

So, despite former COVID czar and current White House Chief of Staff Zients’ belief (and arguably Biden’s belief too) that the pandemic is best not dealt with directly, if they want things like consumer sentiment to increase, then they must take COVID head on* and make it safer. Otherwise, the general crankyness will continue…

*Why they pissed away over a year to get research on the second generation of vaccines mobilized escapes me. It’s not just political malpractice, it’s horrible policy.

Housing and Economic Anxiety

Ned Resnikoff makes a very important point about the Hollywood strikes (boldface mine):

But one of the most important background conditions for these two strikes is the housing crisis. As labor historian Nelson Lichtenstein recently noted, dizzying housing costs in Southern California have fueled a wave of labor actions that spans industries, from film writers to teachers to hotel workers. Besides Los Angeles, the other major epicenter for the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes is New York, which is similarly reeling from the effects of crushing rent inflation.

Writers and actors in the film and television industry have the advantage of organization: They can collectively withhold their labor until studio bosses agree to pay them enough to live in New York and Los Angeles. But artists, like American workers overall, are mostly not unionized. They either practice their craft at a net loss or on the thinnest of margins. The housing crisis has devastated that margin.

In the case of Nic Dyer, a painter who got their start in Baltimore, it has meant the difference between integrating into the New York art world and lingering on the outskirts. Dyer, who uses they/them pronouns, lives more than two miles upstate from the city in Hillsdale, a small town near Hudson. Their rent is $900 per month—a stretch, but far more doable than what they would be paying in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

The trade-off is that they’re far removed from any sort of cohesive artistic community. And that has impacted both their art and their earnings…

This is the story that poet and proto–punk rocker Patti Smith tells in Just Kids, her memoir about her friendship with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. One memorable chapter describes renting a room in the Hotel Chelsea, a fixture of the west side of lower Manhattan, and notes that rent was $55 per month. Even adjusted to 2023 dollars, that’s cheap.

This also happened to be one of the most creatively fecund periods in the city’s history. The scene surrounding punk club CBGB was an artistic explosion unto itself, giving us the Talking Heads, The Ramones, Blondie, and Television. Meanwhile, in the same year that CBGB opened its doors, the Bronx was giving birth to hip-hop.

If New York rents back then had been three or four times higher, we probably would have received only a fraction of that extraordinary musical bounty. In fact, we don’t need counterfactuals to see how higher rents would have killed the city’s alternative music scene: Just look at what happened after the New York indie rock boom of the late 1990s and early 2000s. That was the period when The Strokes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio, and LCD Soundsystem first emerged. (Granted, The Strokes were prep school kids.) But by the mid-2000s, the New York scene was losing its preeminence as rising housing costs locked out young musicians.

I would add that it wasn’t just the period of the indie rock boom that was enabled by low housing prices, but the music of the decade before that was too. If you don’t have to give most of your earnings to your landlord, you can get by. It’s not awesome, but you can do it. Once that went away, it became much harder for professions that are economically marginal (though culturally vital) to live in urban areas. High housing prices are also why we saw graduate students strikes in the University of California system:

If my housing costs were double what they were (which adjusted for inflation is what they are–thanks for the information internet!), I don’t see how I could have completed graduate school without going into debt–and that was with roommates. I also remember when I was a post-doc, both the post-docs and graduate students informally organized to get higher wages–and amazingly won*–because they (we) couldn’t afford housing costs (this was a case of a university in an affluent suburban area that didn’t have enough apartments–and the community refused to build more). This also is not a new problem because this was literally decades ago.

I’m not big on the whole ‘Age Cohort Wars’, but I do think many of us not-youngs need to remember how critical affordable, if not always awesome, housing was to a decent quality of life.

A New COVID Normal for D.C.?

After a few weeks of data, it looks like D.C. (and neighborhood Alexandria, VA) have hit a plateau in terms of COVID wastewater concentrations. The good news is we had a decline last week. The bad news is the new normal is about 5.5 times higher than it was in mid-June three months ago. Here’s D.C.:

Screenshot 2023-09-16 at 9.55.03 AM

Here’s Alexandria, VA:

Screenshot 2023-09-16 at 9.54.42 AM

For context, the maximal concentrations for Alexandria and D.C. during the January 2023 peak were 1,306 and 1,222 respectively, while the current values are 676 and 542 respectively, so we’re at 45-50% of the January peak. That possibly* translates into about 1.0-1.5% of people who are currently infected.

Hopefully, this is a leveling off, leading to a decline, and perhaps the new boosters will help hasten that decline. But for now, masking indoors should be the new normal. Getting an infection, which in a small percentage of people (less than five percent), leads to months of debilitating illness, in some cases permanent disability, is something worth avoiding. You still aren’t the weirdo if you’re trying to avoid (re)infection.

*D.C. didn’t do a COVID testathon in August, so it’s hard to benchmark the data at this point. Without a sentinel surveillance system of hospital asymptomatic and symptomatic intake data, we’re flying blind.
