  1. In my opinion, the speed that they are doing the creation of the test and the fact that they are fairly new tests (like @Mayhem said) should cause pause for people. They have not had enough time to test them before they went out to the public and started mass production of them. I just hope that they do not do this for the vaccine for it. The tests have to be continuously modified as the new "versions" and modifications keep surfacing for the virus. These new versions that surface are normal virology but you cannot modify the test until the modified version has been found in a host. This means that more and more types of tests have to be used which means that the costs are higher. Think of it like the Flu test. You are tested for various strands of the Flu but that means that it is multiple tests: One for A, another for B, another for C, and one for D. Companies were eventually able to use one test in some capacity but until they did, the Doc guessed with one to do and if it was positive then ran the next one and so forth. This means that the individual could be charge for each test and not just once. Also, if someone is benefiting then they possibly have a large "acceptable" threshold. This means when they are being tested for quality control the defective lots can be deemed acceptable because they are within the "allowed margin or error". This leads to more people purchasing them for retests anyways and the company does not care that they are defective "a little". They make money either way. I used to make drug testing devices and did R&D and Quality Control for them in a lab. The threshold thing happens a lot more than you think. I ran a testing device and it failed multiple times for a certain drug. This means that the whole lot has to be scraped and lots of money lost. The higher ups deemed it passable and expanded the margin of error to get around tossing it all in various stages of production. Everything went out. About 6 months later, a complaint came in for false positives (we dealt with complains about devices as well). I was for the exact device that the high ups sent through anyways. The complaint explained that they use three of the tests and all showed positive for heroin and cocaine. They used a different brand of device and it was negative. The complaint explained that the "positive" tester has their kids taken away by the courts because of it and they were still in the process of getting them back with the tests that were accurate. My point is that it happens a lot and the CDC, FDA, etc are profiting companies for all of these things with the big Pharma companies as well.

  2. Friend and his family went in for testing. They said his wife and daughter tested positive and obviously no point in testing him. He just had to have it. They listed him as infected, no test.

  3. I always pay attention to what I am being told. I was surprised to learn that the term coronavirus covers a whole group of viruses that encompasses all the known cold viruses (200 of them) and all of the flu viruses. So are we just being tested for a coronavirus? Or is the test for Covid19? So I definitely had the flu late February. Would I be included as part of the statistical data for having coronavirus? I'm thinking so what! A cold or a flu have created respiratory failure in old people since before data was collected. I see no difference in the local death rate from coronavirus. People are still not dropping dead in the streets like we are led to believe. The latest statistic on coronavirus deaths that I've seen shows 2.6 deaths per 1000 tested. The number keeps dropping as more people are tested. Current data shows this isn't a pandemic. I'm smelling a conspiracy of massive proportions.
