So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative. Don’t get me wrong, I wear a mask and take precautions, but when you hear stories like this, you wonder how much of these reported numbers are manipulated or incorrect.

.... so they had COVID and were lucky enough that their immune systems fought off the disease, at which point they would no longer test positive (and would instead need to be tested for antibodies). I'm not a doctor but idt this requires an Md to understand

Or they had it before even going on the trip.

I truly don’t believe or like to think there’s any truth to conspiracies, but my wife knows two people who on separate occasions were incorrectly tested positive. They both went to drive through testing centers and got as far as filling out paper work, but ended up leaving because the wait was too long. A week later they both received their “positive” results in the mail. I wish I was making this up but I keep hearing similar stories and it definitely makes me question everything.

This is always “I know someone who knows someone who left the line early...” and never substantiated.

Testing is known to show false posi/negatives. Get the antibody testing if possible

There’ve also been patients testing negative and then tested a little later and testing positive. Works both ways

You do realize that test results are solely based on your active viral load at the time of testing right?
