"Negative Diagnostic Test Results

The diagnostic tests available today for COVID-19 are so new that it's unclear how reliable they are, Medscape Medical News reports, which means clinicians need to use their judgment particularly when interpreting negative results. False negative rates in published studies range from 3% to 66% in different patient cohorts, and early evidence suggests test accuracy varies widely depending on what part of the body is being tested and at what point in the disease course testing occurs, among other factors.
"How we treat patients is going to depend on understanding this concept," said one expert. "It isn't one number. It's actually much more complicated and very nuanced." If clinicians don't understand that, he added, "We're really going to make mistakes about how to use all these negative tests."
"


The article says physicians have to use "clinical judgement" instead of just relying on black-and-white "test results", because even the best tests have false positives and false negatives, so testing interpretation and response is context-dependent.

LibTards just can't process this kind of thing. They view the world as a simplistic dichotomy of 'good and evil', where you classify each person as one or the other, and from there forward, all they do or say is either Gospel or lies. No nuance allowed; no imperfect goodness; no silver lining in the cloud.

I guess life must be simple for them, but they all seem so full of stress and rage and hate, that I'm not sure it is a good way to view the world.

Heck I was sick a month or so back. But, because I had no fever they refused to test me. Well now I’m trying to get the antibody test to see if I had C-19. But now the docs are refusing because it’s not supposed to be accurate

Truth is I think they aren’t testing to save money. Anytime a very large medical corporation “doesn’t have the test yet” when other less advanced nations do it seems awfully suspicious.

It could be money, but I believe that the local Death Panel has just decided that some people aren't important enough to waste a test on.

Insurance companies have the model in place and working for deciding who is worth spending resources on. :evil: They were put in charge of healthcare for just such a purpose.
