So two of the three positive tests from the Phillies staff were false positives. Wonder what the prevalence of false positives is nationally?? Who knows, and who cares right?? Masks! Shut everything down forever! Science and data!

Any idea what the false + or false - might be?

This meta-analysis found the virus is viable for average 5 days after appearance of symptoms. Thereafter tho you shed dead RNA which gives a positive result, "detection of viral RNA cannot be used to infer infectiousness." So PCR test is largely bogus.

Are we testing people without symptoms? The whole thing is such bullshit at this point. I can’t believe we are still playing the game of covid.

Yes. They test every player and staff member, not just those exhibiting symptoms.

False positives were from the quick test that reportedly can have error rates as high as 30%. MLB uses the siliva test said to have an error rate as low as 1% but no higher than 10%. Siliva test is typically an overnight turnaround.

All of them are asymptomatic too. 😄

Are any of these players with “positives” actually symptomatic? Generally we never hear any details which suggests to me that they are not or are very mild.

Ya. No Biggie I guess. Wear masks forever and stay home until you die and only 10 can attend your funeral.
