Just a word of warning

I heard from two different people today that they tested positive for Covid19 after getting a negative rapid test.

Maybe that is a coincidence but appears that Omicron could be going undetected by the quick tests. Rapid tests have always been more faulty but I am getting the feeling that they might be giving us a false sense of security on this particular wave.

It appears the good Dr. Fauci was right when he said the Rapid tests might have issues with this variety.

Even testing before gatherings might not help keep the virus away.

Stay safe.

1. This virus is smarter than we are.

It is always several steps ahead of us.

2. Just an FYI

I heard a Doctor on on of the morning news shows. He stated that some otc Covid test did not detect omicron.

I believe he said Applied DNA, Meridian Bioscience and either Todd or Tide Company. He said donít by those.

Another post was just made with the same information.
