Testing for Nonsense

Some actual sources:

MIT Medical https://medical.mit.edu/faqs/faq-testing-covid-19#faq-9

Harvard https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/which-test-is-best-for-covid-19-2020081020734

And an article from the Lancet that does actually talk about some of the actual potential problems with mass-PCR testing, where the suggestion is that we need to continue to refine our testing strategies, rather than the idea that false positives are widespread. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanres/article/PIIS2213-2600%2820%2930453-7/fulltext
