Why was post #72, my rebuttal got deleted?  It wasn't offensive or anything just a well reasoned response.

Listened to the NLU podcast that came out today. I guess cam champ, who tested positive, has taken 3 more tests since then that have all come back negative. There is so much gray area here.

I'm not even sure it's gray area so much as whatever the false positive and false negative rates for the tests are.  I haven't paid close enough attention to even know if those values are known.

60 minutes did a report on a test kit that was suppose to check for antibodies.   The idea of the test kit was to determine if you had the Coronavirus at one time.   I believe they found that only about 20% of the test were accurate.   I believe it will be quite some time before we have an accurate test.

Problem with these tests are that some of the tests have a very low sensitivity and/or selectivity.  In the beginning, CDC's tests were basically useless.  Even some test now, you see them to be only 60-70% accurate.  I am sure other tests have much higher sensitivity and selectivity.  But we don't know which test people are actually using.

Regardless, no test is 100% accurate.  So it is not surprising to see some false positive (and probably some false negative as well.
