“Ninety out of 144. That is a failure rate of of 68.75%. We cannot trust ANY of the data.”

Ninety people who received positive COVID-19 results did not have the virus, according to the Connecticut state Department of Public Health.
The department said the state public health laboratory uncovered a flaw in one of the testing systems it uses to test for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and 90 of 144 people tested between June 15 and July 17 received a false positive COVID test report. Many are nursing home residents.
According to the state Department of Health, the errant testing results were “from a widely-used laboratory testing platform that the state laboratory started using on June 15.”
