Did anyone see Ben McDonald’s twitter post about Covid cases?
He said he knew of 6 who tried to get tested. They filled out the paperwork, but for whatever reason (wait too long/out of tests) they left without getting tested.

2-3 days later, they received an email stating they tested positive for COVID.

I keep hearing this, but people really need to step up with proof, And then someone needs to be prosecuted for fraud.

There was a tweet over the weekend about 6 Florida labs that had a 100% positive result for all the Covid labs they reported for the day.

Right. I've heard it indirectly many times over the last few days. If true than there is concrete proof of inflated numbers. We've all suspected inflation but this is concrete and it needs to be made into an issue.

Unfortunately our politicians are weak and spineless and wont make a scene about it

Stout posted something last week where the actual letters and documents were shown.

The problem is "proof" would just be met with "THAT'S SHOPPED!!1!"

Totally anecdotal other than an EMA Director confirmed it...

Someone I know had a family member test positive with the rapid test. Whole family had to get test. When the original family member was tested for confirmation with the "long" test, they came back negative... Whole family tested negative...

EMA Director said about 40% of the rapid tests in his county were coming back as false positives... Now, how those false positives are tracked and reported can inflate the active cases as well...

I have heard similar stories from a number of people I know.

Anecdotal, but seems to be a pretty common occurrence.

It seems like an employee drug test. Once notified if refused it’s assumed to be positive.

The fact he can give a rough percentage with any confidence means its tracked - and, to me, invalidates the whole enterprise

40% inaccuracy essentially means not really accurate at all when it comes to public policy

I'm saying individuals would have to go on record saying they were never tested but received letters saying they tested positive. Surely some news organization would air that story.

I've seent his posted several times on Facebook posts of people saying the same thing. That they didn't make it to their appointment but got a notification of test results.

My brother found out today he was negative, his text was 11 days ago. That’s insanity.

False positives and backlogged death reporting. It's almost like we're being subjected to politically-motivated fraud.

There are 43 pages of OBITS in the Houston Chron today
That's part of the plot too I guess.
