Thanks for the info, I have bookmarked it. I hope the CDC data is accurate and has not been tampered with as some states have done.

My dad's 80 year old friend went in for a blood test concerning his kidney got a call saying he tested positive for Corona. He called his Primary dr and said it was an error. So much for accuracy. At no time did he have a swab done.

Wrong is still wrong just because you benefited from it.

Re: CDC weekly surveillance report

@Nancy Drew so your point is that no one should be tested because there are some errors? Testing allows a person who is positive to self isolate until several tests show they are no longer a danger to others. I would not want to walk around infecting others. That is why I wear a mask even though I have no symptoms.

Is it possible he tested positive for the antibodies?

@chessylady  Boy did your imagination run wild! That wasn't my point. My point is how many other inaccuracies are there out there?

According to his Primary Dr. No. Clean as a whistle on that front. His right kidney has an issue tho.

Re: CDC weekly surveillance report

@Nancy Drew,  do you know what kind of covid testing was done when the man went in for blood work related to his kidneys?

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?
