That picture is troubling, many doctors say, as it casts doubt on the reliability of a wave of new tests developed by manufacturers, lab companies and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most of these are operating with minimal regulatory oversight and little time to do robust studies amid a desperate call for wider testing.

I guess we could just use a Quija board. Those kind of results are worse than no testing at all, as it gives 1 in 3 coronavirus patients the false belief they are not infected and can't transmit the virus. Just better to assume you have it if you have symptoms.

Wall Street Journal makes me nervous. This needs fact checking. One in three seems a bit high.
Conservative minded folks would know Rupert Murdoch owns the WSJ.

I mean if we're gonna start doubting based on political bias....

The saliva test is 1 in 3. The genetic test is more widely available currently and is more accurate.
