An anecdote of a disastrous Covid-19 testing protocol

My friend told me this anecdote of a disastrous covid testing protocol.

He know of a couple who as dance instructors. There were exposed to a colleague who was tested positive for covid. They carried out their self test using ART and the results came out positive. They isolated themselves for 14 day and later found the ART test to be negative.

They went for a PCR test. My friend did not say whether it was a requirement of their work or they were playing safe.

Being foreigners they paid $350 for the test. I do not know if this is the charge for one person or for the couple – my friend was not sure either.

The PCR test came out to be positive. The couple had to be isolated again for another 14 days.

The couple asked why did the PCR tests showed a positive result when they had already isolated themselves for 14 days and were tested negative on ART?

My friend did not know the answer. He said that it was likely that the ART and PCR tests are not reliable.

I do not know the answer either. I remember that these tests are not 100% accurate, so the results could fall within the margin of error.

However, I am quite sure that the protocol had cause the couple to be placed under 28 days of isolation, resulting in a big loss of income and inconvenience to them.

I have a strong view that the protocol is wasteful and unnecessary.

I believe that the testing and isolation is not necessary. I am not sure how well it helped to stop the spread of the virus. Even if the virus, which is mild for asymptomatic people, is spread, it is not likely to cause other people to fall severely sick and need hospital treatment.

I recall reading that most of the people who went through the isolation period completed the isolation with negative test results and did not fall sick themselves.

    For once, he asked the right question. I believes the MTF (Mother’s The F**kers) don’t know the answer. Just copy, no 10-year series.

  • Smart Nation:

    All these tests are unnecessary. People are already mingling at restaurants, food-courts and hawker centers. Anyone could be infected and not know that he/she is transmitting the virus. ART costs money
    to do it everyday. Just because you are in the proximity of an infected person does not mean you will get it. If you do get it and symptoms appear, then get tested to confirm.

  • DESIGNED ART:

    The ART and fart of the process is designed in such a manner that no one would ever be able to appreciate it as it adversely costs a lot more than the desired outcome.

    Perhaps, what TKL is trying to emphasise is: Why ART is needed when PCR always contradicts the results?

    Is Marburg virus now being freemasonly planned ? Or has it been released? If it’s a yes, soon everyone shall become Marbok.

    All sorts of Viruses keep coming back-to-back as though it has been illuminatically premeditated by a group of devilites and cahootive followers.

    One day, it shall be completely exposed.
    Truth be told, it is all a game of the destructive Gog and Magog with a mission to massively eradicate human beings on earth.

    Time to run to Him; The Almighty.

    There are thousands of folks(both VACCINATED and UNVACCINATED)PERFORMING SELF ISOLATION AKA HR(Home Recovery)after going through the ART(OF WAR) against Covid19. Some KAISI folks even pay through their nose for the PCR Test.

    Btw, since there are 1001 cases of Folks going through SELF ISOLATION after Kenna tested POSITIVE by the 2 Holee gadgets(ART and PCR)are there ENOUGH ENFORCEMENT BY THE WORLD CLASS MINISTERIAL TRASH FORCE OF THE 3 STOOGES to ENSURE THAT EVERYONE ADHERES TO THE STRICT PROTOCOL BY EMPLOYING ENOUGH MANPOWER TO ENSURE 101% COMPLIANCE? OWNSELF CHECK OWNSELF. OWNSELF ENFORCE OWNSELF! What happen WHEN during the 28 days of self isolation the Male Dancer cannot tahan, then SNEAKED out to VISIT A KTV joint at Keong Saik Road to RELEASE and RELIEVE pend up tension? If that is the LIKELY case, the Joker should BLAME HIMSELF rather than putting the blame on the Holee ART(of War)and the PCR TESTS!

    Tan Golden Chain, like Simon always say: what do you think?

  • SEND FOREIGNERS HOME:

    Straits Times: Not an option for Raeesah Khan to clarify lie on Oct 5, time needed to structure statement: Sylvia Lim

    It appears that Raaesah Kah decided to “come clean” (be honest) but changed her mind and instead decided to “double down” by lying again to this time to the Committee when she said her party told her to continue lying.

    The Committee should call her again to clarify what she said. If it does not then it is afraid of the truth and its main goal is to just smear the WP.

  • Relax:

    1) If viral load is low, the test can’t detect. ART test has only 98% accuracy.
    2) Vaxxed people with weak immunity system are still vulnerable to virus, and as the efficacy of vaccine wane over time, they will still get sick when people pass virus to them. So be responsible, vaxxed people must do the test. And go booster jabs.

    Above answers are website info.

    Mr Tan, can you answer my question:
    1) If vaccine can increase antibody level, and without doing antibody test, how do you know your antibody level has increased?
    2) High antibody level is not equivalent to good immunity system, T-cells and B-cells are more important, so why vaxx?

  • Trust only myself:

    $350 must be for two……..if for only one then must be daylight robbery.

    PCR test at Changi cost $160 already so expensive.
    In China I had a test for pre-departure costing only rbm75………and the best is along the way back to Singapore nobody bothered to check if I had PDT done……

    $160 vs rbm75 ($16).

    Ten times. That IS daylight robbery!

  • PAP is "fishing" to smear WP:

    Straits Times: WP leaders issued summons after failing to produce documents requested by privileges committee

    The PAP-dominated privileges committee is “fishing” for documents it can use to smear WP. What it really needs to do before concluding its work is to call Raeesah Khan again to explain why he version of what happens differs significantly from what the Committee learned from WP senior officers. She claimed her party told her to continue lying to Parliament. This was disputed by her party. Was she lying again?

    The Committee final report should make clear who it believes to be telling the truth and who is lying. Will it side with Raeesah Khan and smear WP to gain political advantage? Let us see.

  • PAP smear continues:

    Straits Times: WP’s Pritam Singh disputes giving Raeesah Khan choice on correcting lie

    Pritam made it clear he wanted Raeesah Khan to take responsibility for her lies and do what is right. The only choice given to her by her party was when and how she will so it. If the Committee is serious about getting the whole truth it should call Raeesah Khan again to explain the discrepancy in her account of what happened. She likely lied to the Committee when she said her party told her to continue lying. She wanted to “look good” by throwing her party under the bus. Further questioning of Raeesah is necessary to get the whole truth. But it appears privileges committee is more interested in smearing WP than getting at the truth.

    BTW, the biggest lie in Singapore is when LKY said the value of HDB flats will never go down when if fact it will be worth zero at then if the lease. BILLIONS of retirement savings (CPF money) are put into the HDB Ponzi Scheme. When the oldest HDB flats start their rapid decline to ZERO the Ponzi Scheme will be exposed and there will be “blood on the streets”.

    This type of gossip is for the market aunty

    Read below ,

    African swimmer will not compete at the Fina World C Ship .

    Compete spreading Covid oversea can.

    Singapore will not compete at the Fina World Swimming Championships (25m) in Abu Dhabi after four of the Republic’s 14 swimmers tested positive for the coronavirus.

    The four swimmers, who are isolating in a different hotel from the others, are awaiting the results of a second polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.

    The Straits Times understands that three of the swimmers are asymptomatic, while one has a cough, fever and loss of smell and taste but does not require medical attention.

    The Singapore contingent travelled to Dubai on Sunday (Dec 12) and cleared the pre-departure test then, before arriving in Abu Dhabi the next day for the Dec 16-21 short course world championships.
