COVID-19 False Positives and Real-Life Implications for Long-term Care
The global coronavirus pandemic is worsening quickly, and at a time when winter is bearing down, forcing more of us to remain inside. In fact, health experts are predicting that confirmed daily cases of COVID-19 will climb above 200,000 nationally. With soaring infection rates come more testing, as well as more hospitalizations and deaths.
A focus on COVID-19 testing will come into sharp relief as Talk Ten Tuesdays continues with the second portion of its three-part series on false-positive tests. During the next edition of the popular weekly Internet broadcast, Talk Ten Tuesdays co-host Erica Remer, MD will reintroduce Arnold Cohen, PhD, who has been doing groundbreaking work on COVID-19 false positives.
Dr. Cohen will report on the consequences of false positives for patients in long-term care facilities. Putting a human face on the testing dilemma will be Brian Kim, who will report on his real-life experience of false-positive testing results, and how it wreaked havoc on his family.
