The Communist thugs in charge of China have been trying to have it two ways on coronavirus: Playing the aggrieved victim of racism/biological-warfare/whatever, and acting like the international bigshot who, having solved the crisis at home, is now eager to help other nations around the world.
Beijing’s antics are making everything worse everywhere, this time in the Czech Republic.
The Czech newspaper Irozhlas (I-Radio) reports that the bigshots in Beijing sent 150,000 coronavirus rapid testing kits to Czechia which return false results up to 80% of the time.
Forgive the rough Google Translate results, but I don’t speak Czech:
“We checked them on Saturday at the University Hospital Ostrava, but unfortunately the error rate was quite high, so now we are waiting for the results of further testing across the country, they have never been tested positively because it works with antibodies,” said Svrčinová.
She added that the tests showed false positive and false negative results. “We tested those who searched for a sampling site. Fortunately, we were so far-sighted that samples were immediately taken for the classic examination and that just proved the error rate of the tests,” said Svrčinová. Even if tests are used in end-of-quarantine patients, hygienists will want to check their reliability first.
Jan Hamacek, the Czech Republic’s deputy prime minister and interior minister said, “I don’t think it’s a scandalous revelation that it’s not working,” but it’s difficult to see how he reached that conclusion, given the huge failure rate and that the bad tests return both false positive and false negatives.
