Living in the U.S. South, the community I think we are really excluding a lot is the rural community. I think there are a lot of people in the rural community that are not even aware that there is a virus. They're not getting the testing they need; and naturally, if they're not getting tested and they're not aware that they're infected, they're not getting the treatment.
