Del Norte County is Looking at Your Poop for Covid-19
Yes, that's right. Our local health officials are examining wastewater in an attempt to generate "case estimates based on the detection of genetic fragments of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in stool".
This is clearly a convoluded and inaccurate method to determine case estimates. Not only are all of these stool samples "mixed in the same pot", but anyone who has natural immunity and antibodies, or anyone that has had a vaccination, will be expressing this genetic material in their stool as well.
Essentially they have deployed a system that will always generate a positive result, regardless of vaccination or natural immunity status, saying nothing of testing positive for other strains of flu or coronavirus.

A guide, on finding a man who has lost his way, brings him back to the right path—he does not mock and jeer at him and then take himself off. You also must show the unlearned man the truth, and you will see that he will follow. But so long as you do not show it to him, you should not mock, but rather feel your own incapacity.
Do not rely on following the degree of understanding that you have discovered, but simply think, “This is not enough”.
