... to videos that are already available on youtube in the first place. For example, if the copyright holder had put them on youtube. And this decision would prevent the copyright holder from claiming infringement or damages for anyone who had embedded said video into their own website.

That's fine... but as was concluded above, people would lie about their symptoms anyways if they thought they might be quarantined. The point of the blood test would be not to find people who aren't symptomatic, it would be to find people who *HAVE* had symptoms, but do not necessarily yet realize they might have contracted the illness because the symptoms haven't seemed particularly bad to them yet, or would lie about their symptoms because they don't want to face quarantine. As I said, this test could take only about 15 minutes per person. If you are only doing this as you go with people who are traveling from countries where it is epidemic (which you can tell from their passport, even if they are not directly travelling from that country), then it should be entirely manageable.

So don't rely on people to accurately report symptoms. Take a sample of their blood, regardless of how well they claim to have been feeling. You can tell from passport records whether they've travelled to or from one of the highly affected countries, so you don't even need them to honestly report where they've been recently, and if they've been there in the past three weeks, require a mandatory blood test. I've heard that a fairly recently developed test for this can be performed in under 15 minutes, requiring only a couple of drops of blood that can be obtained simply by pricking the person's finger.

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
