  1. “The CDC recommends all individuals get tested if they have been exposed to a known positive case.”
    Too bad there isn’t any way to determine a positive case is “known”. The inventor of the PCR test insisted it was not useful for this purpose. Fauci has stated that with 35 or more cycles, the PCR test results in excessive false positives, making it useless. While the CDC recommends 40. Let’s not forget that Elon Musk took four tests in one day, done by the same nurse in the same facility, and got two of each, positive and negative. No one “knows” if any one was exposed to an infected individual or not. All they know is that they may have been exposed to an individual who tested positive with a test that is fundamentally unreliable.
