    That's the exact opposite of the situation as I've read it repeatedly. The tests produce too many false negatives.

    Your comment looks close to the Donald Trump theory of pandemic response, "If we do less testing we'll have less cases."

    Using that logic no worried teen should ever do a pregnancy test.

    Do you have any evidence of the false negatives?

    Love the teen analogy as pregnancy testing doesn’t stop young ladies from getting pregnant or getting pregnant again lol

    Type "US Covid tests: false negatives" into the search engine of your choice. There should be heaps. One scary item mentions that including both false negatives, and false positives, the error rate is about 50%.

    You need to mention the US because Trump decided the US should manufacture their own tests rather than use what everybody else uses.
    Subsequently it seems, Trump's tests are as accurate as a coin toss.

    pritch have you not learnt anything the four years of posting dribble in the 2016 US presidential Election thread?

    It is you, the accuser, who is to supply credible and verifiable sources not the rest of the KB members to go down that rabit hole.

    Yes, people have caught it twice, and apparently it's more severe 2nd time around.....
