Many people are being encouraged to "Get Tested" for COVID-19 even if they aren't sick. Docs are telling people "we just want to make sure." BAD IDEA. When you take a COVID-19 test, there is a fifty percent (50%) "Error Rate" in the test.
Turns out, according to the CDC, the present COVID-19 tests might come back "positive" if you've merely had the common cold! That's right! Because the "Common cold" is another coronavirus! Here, Look at this from the CDC Web Site . . .

So the test results are grossly unreliable. But it gets worse . . . a LOT worse.
If your test comes back "positive" your name and address immediately goes into a State database shared with Police, Fire and EMS. So if you call the police for anything . . . like an ambulance . . . a message comes up on the police dispatcher's computer telling them "Universal Precautions Required at this address." Your so-called "medical privacy" under the HPPA laws . . . GONE!
Once that message pops up in the police department, every cop, every fireman, every EMS worker in your town immediately knows someone in YOUR HOUSE is infected. In small town America, the Gossip mill starts immediately.
It gets worse. In California, the Child Protective Service is filing legal actions against parents who test positive, to TAKE THEIR MINOR CHILDREN AWAY until the parents are no longer positive!
