Well since the CDC is one of the revered sources of those who trust the science, I thought I'd throw them in your face to see how you'd try to spin their statement to mean the opposite.
So go ahead . . .
Why it is a foolish choice to design a test specifically to test for a new and dangerous pathogen? that is what they were looking for!I see.
What better way of saying that the PCR-test was a foolish choice. If they knew that, why did they use it?
They have in fact replaced that earlier test with one that will simultaneously test the same sample for covid and two strains of influenza. But that test will not identify whooping cough or measles or cancer or heart disease or ....
Tests are designed to test for specific things. This was deliberate, not a mistake of some sort.
The device that measures your blood pressure does not also measure your temperature and weight, right?
