So about 2 weeks ago my 4-year-old nephew got sick, he had a fever, a cough, and a sore throat. My father who watches him got sick as well, same
illness fever, cough, sore throat. Both got tested using the at-home kits you buy from Walgreens (BinaxNOW) and both came up negative for COVID. My
father is vaccinated.
Fast forward to this last weekend and I had the family over for a BBQ. My nephew and father both came since they didn't have COVID and everyone had
a great time.
On Monday my wife and her Grandfather who was at the BBQ fell ill, Fever, cough, sore throat. Since my grandfather-in-law had cancer before and
because of his age they took him to a hospital and he tested positive for COVID.
My wife went to her doctor and she tested positive for COVID at the doctor. My wife said they used the same looking rapid test at her doctor.
Fast forward to today and I am feeling ill, mild fever, cough, but no sore throat. My wife buys me a BinaxNOW rapid test and it comes with 2 tests
and I came up negative for COVID. For #s and giggles, she took the other test and it came up negative for COVID.
We then went and dropped off a BinaxNOW rapid test for her grandfather and he showed negative for COVID on BOTH tests.
How can this be?
The only theories I have are either the BinaxNOW don't work and they all show negative, or there is some kind of incentive for hospitals and
doctor's offices to keep bolstering the COVID #'s for money or other gains.
What do ya'll think? Do I have COVID?
