Courtney Love has complained about inequality in access to COVID test kits, citing her experience that she and many of her “wealthy friends” have had access to at-home coronavirus/antibody test kits for more than six months.
“I’ve never been great at this 1 percenter s***. I love myself some fine living, but in the end I bleed liberal,’ Love wrote 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 in both of my countries ( and globally too ) for 5 bucks or even 20,” the 56-year-old Golden Globe nominee added.
As a new strain of the coronavirus is 70 percent more “catchy” than the last, Love argued that all Americans need this testing capacity more than ever.
If tests that can detect Covid antigen within 15 minutes were made available and cheap, “people would still make tons of money and this s**t would be curbed,” according to Love. “Billions and maybe trillions in world economy could be saved,” said the singer, songwriter and actress.
She concludes her post by saying, “I feel less dirty and my conscience more clear to post this. Though I’m scared to as well.”
