    Maybe if the test results were actually accurate they could have a better understanding… I have seen so many false positives just in my county alone in CA… Those are not being taken into account for accurate covid cases. just another positive, gotta get those numbers up. I have personally been witness to a very false positive.. Filled out all paperwork, waited over an hr after turning in test paperwork, left without being tested then get a response fron testing site health dept that it was positive….hmmmm something is definitely not right
