**Comment**

Everyone’s assuming COVID-19 tests are accurate, when research straight from China shows they are not:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/03/21/study-shows-covid-19-testing-as-bad-as-lyme-msids-testing/  (Please see comment section as well)  There is a greater than 50% false positive rate and upwards to 80%!

Even the CDC states their PCR test has problems (labs can’t verify test performance):  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/testing.html

This article states a drawback to PCR is that it can’t identify people who went through an infection, recovered, and cleared the virus (This is true with Lyme disease testing as well): https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/02/singapore-claims-first-use-antibody-test-track-coronavirus-infections

Regarding PCR testing for COVID-19, pulmonologist & epidemiologist Dr. Wobarg states:

We are currently not measuring the incidence of coronavirus diseases, but the activity of the specialists searching for them.  https://www.wodarg.com

All this test is doing is giving inaccurate results more quickly.
