Grunge queen Courtney Love has shared some thoughts on COVID-19 testing the US, expressing frustrations that the working class don’t have access to the same at-home testing kits that she and her “one percenter” bezzy mates do.
“I have and many of my wealthy friends have had access to COVID test kits, for over six months,” the Hole rocker revealed on Instagram.
“Every time I give people without the same money or access as me a box of 20 I get furious that these are not available at every Tesco and at every 7/11 … for five bucks or even 20.”
Posting her negative result from an at-home test by pharmaceutical company Roche, which can apparently “detect COVID antigen in you within 15 minutes”, Love went on to argue that making the testing kits “available and cheap” would be enough to thwart the pandemic.
“Billions and maybe trillions in world economy could be saved,” she said, going on to acknowledge her own privilege.
“I’ve never been all that comfortable with my own elitism, especially in the area of public health,” she continued.
“You all deserve to have a box of tests in your fridge. I keep asking why the fuck you don’t.
“I feel less dirty and my conscience more clear to post this.”
