We need to see the proof, if that’s true it’s a fraud upon the people.

Mass State Troopers should be able to get the the bottom of this. Call whomever is in charge to Troop E.

Call the media but obviously not one of the spinners of fake news.

Your post is missing facts. Let’s hear the whole story or delete it. Makes zero sense.

A hospital makes approx $4500.00 More for a COVID Death than they do for another death cause. It's all about the money

Here is a fact:
Cases are reported by testing. Each test is a case. People get multiple tests. Therefore many people have multiple cases. Most employers require a negative test before returning to work. My architect had 7 tests before a negative.

I know this info to be true because my coworkers wife runs the tests in the lab and that’s how she sends the data to the state daily.

Well that narrows it down considerably.

what I want to know is what they were doing testing someone that died long ago.

Perhaps they simply got the patient's name mixed up with another identical name.

Hospital in New York confuse my son with someone else with his name once. So my son ended up talking to the guys dad....who was head of a prominent investment firm....about family histories and where their family came from and where ours came from.... Not related closely at all. Not for the last 180 years. but it was interesting cuz my son made a high level contact in the field he is going to school for..... And people automatically assume he's related to that other guy too

But, but some of the fake facts align with my agenda. Let’s keep regurgitating this for effect.

No, put the same people that investigated the heinous lead pipe beatingbnear Dearborn, Michigan on it...I heard it was about an "execution" as one of the witnesses has stated..

My condolences for the loss of your father

You are correct. Most states are doing the same thing. If one person tests positive they will be subjected to numerous tests until a test comes back negative. Each test is treated like a new case. The numbers are BS.

Its always a coworkers wife, or a neighbor's kid, or the milkman's first cousin's dogsitter.

We have numerous accounts here in VA of people who went to get tested, registered for testing and then dropped out of the line and never got tested for various reasons. A week or two later they got a call saying they had tested positive and they need to quarantine at home for 10-14 days. They are officially recorded with the health department as being COVID +.

I think testing is a good tool but I also think that it has become profit driven and I am losing faith in the accuracy of the tests.

The "pandemic" has taken on a dimension of its own with all its rules and orders and restrictions. Everyone is making a superficial effort to be in compliance and keep doors open and services running but there needs to be a realization that most of the rules and orders have little effect if they are not done correctly with attention to detail. At the point you start slacking, you might as well throw them all out. I don't buy the every little bit helps argument. Clean is clean and dirty is dirty. Tests, masks, distancing, etc. gives a false sense of security. We are all at risk and there is no proven way to mitigate that risk short of absolute isolation. To think otherwise is foolishness. There is a lot of profit being made on the virus by certain people and a lot of power is being usurped. On the other side, this is costing some billions of dollars and many lives are being destroyed and lost under false pretenses.

Prepare to meet your maker and go about life.

Well considering I have been to the lab to be tested myself, due to the fact that my wife is Respitory Therapist treating people with covid, and she had an exposure, I would say it’s first hand knowledge.

Also, a nice small piece of info. They were a cancer research lab, they have stopped cancer research to run covid tests. 💵💵

And those who push the computer buttons in the hospitals and record keeping bureaucracy get part of it.
And keep their jobs.
