Think about multiple people testing positive shortly after testing negative

We are all familiar with super spreader events. However none of them had readily available pre-event testing that I am aware of. Yes, we know there are false negative tests. Nevertheless a few questions have crossed my mind.

1) Was everyone tested before the SCOTUS party last week? The Notre Dame president claimed he was, so I assumed all others were as well. Imagine a false negative from someone who sheds enough virus to infect that many people. It’s mind-numbing.

2) What test was used? I hear it was the Abbott test. Who administered it, who ran it and did they use the proper procedure and equipment?

3) If Chris Wallace was correct and the Tump team wasn’t tested before the debate, why did they do that? Were they concerned about a possible positive. It just doesn’t make sense to avoid testing when you claim to test a lot.

The other possibility is that the SCOTUS party wasn’t a super spreader event, and these folks were just a bunch of irresponsible people all got caught the same time. Of course, both could be true.
