The Center for Disease Control now admits to combining two very different sorts of tests to report the number of cases, not the survival rate, just the number of cases, of the virus. The first sort of test, a viral test, that determines whether or not a person is CURRENTLY infected with the virus are the ones that are most readily available and use a swab to take a sample for analysis.
The second sort of test is an antibody test that checks to see if there are antibodies for the virus in the blood. Anti-bodies would either indicate the person had the virus already or was exposed and the body’s immune system took care of the little bug.
“The viral testing is to understand how many people are getting infected, while antibody testing is like looking in the rearview mirror. The two tests are totally different signals,” Jha told The Atlantic.
And that, when it comes to reporting the numbers is a problem. The numbers we’re seeing from the CDC, and as it turns out, a number of states, are not accurate and are turning out to be inflated.
So, what does the CDC have to say? The official word:
“Now that serology testing is more widely available, CDC is working to differentiate those tests from the viral tests and will report this information, differentiated by test type, publicly on our COVID Data Tracker website in the coming weeks,” [CDC spokesperson Kristen Nordlund] said.
