That’s Anthony Fauci he is discussing. Also about this matter of “false positives”. Saw this as a comment here.
Bayesian conditional probability is being completely ignored. Let’s say a COVID-19 test is 90% accurate and 1 out of 100 people have COVID-19. You test positive for COVID-19, what’s the chance the test is correct? 100-1=99 people don’t have COVID-19 but 99×10%= ~10 will falsely test positive. The probability that you actually have COVID-19 is only 1/(1+10)= ~9%. ~90% of positive cases/deaths are FALSE!
Meanwhile there is so much money being made out of curing us that this is one disease that will never go away. False positives are all just part of the story.
