And, where are those facilities located and how many states both in Mexico and NOB use them? Just a plain PCR test will not distinguish the difference. Much more elaborate/expensive testing has to be done.

Below is from YOUR Source, not mine:

But can the actual COVID tests on the market detect the Delta variant?

To put it simply: not always. While the Delta variant (otherwise known as B.1.617.2) may be the pathogenic offspring of the novel coronavirus, it carries distinctive biological markers that some among the dozens of commercially available COVID tests from academic institutes and medical giants may not be able to sense. An initial COVID test would then have to receive additional screening that involves more intricate genomic sequencing of a patient’s sample in order to home in on whether or not it’s a Delta variant case, and that process is reliant on a mishmash of private, state, and federal laboratories that are carrying out the screening, "

About your meme: https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2021/jul/26/facebook-posts/large-scale-not-individual-testing-tells-when-delt/

Google it. The same facilities in the US that test for the original Sars-2 also test for the Delta variant. You can Google for testing sites in Mexico also.

"Pensive Einstein) The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed."

"Genomic sequencing from a positive test sample, said Stephen Morse, professor of epidemiology at Columbia University Medical Center, "would tell you unequivocally what variant infected that person."

Hey, not happy with your own source, delete it. Just quoting the source you gave us. :D

For all of the non maskers/anti vaxxers who based their opinions upon "credible" sources like facebook, QAnon, Faux news, Drudge report, Parler, and Breitbart, etc. etc.  >  You may want to take a trip to Joco and ask a medical professional about his first hand Covid experience,  Dr. Adolfo Nuñez. At the entrance, walk down to the third row and turn left, then about 10 meters later you will find him on the right.  He was infected by two American expats from Ajijic.  Dr. Nuñez was dead in 72 hours.   He was not vaccinated since the vaccine was not available to medical professionals in Mexico in the first tier roll out.  Descanse en Paz Dr, Nuñez.Jocotepec.thumb.png.47305ad1421e5c01c7758eedff0cbc55.png

My source was fine. Your pensive Einstein has been banned on FB because it is false.

That is terrible. He had back surgery about a year ago so he could keep working. Nice man.

What's your point? Labs can do further testing on samples. Nothing unusual about it.

It is cruel, evil and immoral. How can anyone compare people being given the opportunity to live with 6 million children, women, and men being horrifically tortured killed?

LIFE exists on the concept of what's in it for me !---with out that survival instinct life will cease to exist-are you that out of touch reality ?-HA

Lower life forms, such as yourself and reptiles, exist on that concept. Mammals who live in family structures exist on the concept of what's in it for us.

Most Americans are altruistic.  Empathy, compassion, selflessness are what allowed the human race to grow. Otherwise it would have died off thousands of years ago.

true words of a socialist--I my friend believe  survival  solely depends on self preservation first; then if anything is left over one can be generous.

That's typical of someone like you who also hates it that a Black man far exceeded anything you could ever do. I am just guessing that you didn't graduate with honors from Harvard nor were you elected POTUS twice. Nothing worse than a Black man not knowing his place and beating you, is there?

You just don't get satire, do you?

No passport for me--I 'm just not built that way---I immigrated to Mexico for freedom from Comi-Cali--and i'm too old to change now--HA-- Mexico may fall too; but i'll be long gone by then--HA
