Coronavirus arrives in San Diego

Toxic Tourist

In news we sincerely wish was merely almost factual, San Diego has had its first confirmed cases of coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19, otherwise known as we’re all gonna die. In news we even more sincerely wish was almost factual, San Diego has had its first confirmed screwup in the handling of a case of coronavirus. A patient was released from the hospital back into federal quarantine after what the CDC is calling a “mix-up” over whether or not a test for the virus was negative. SDQT has obtained an image of the test in question, and presents it here in the interest of public accountability.

Wait, does yes mean yes there’s an infection, or yes it’s okay to release the patient? Why do they make these tests so confusing?
