    Lots of BS on social media according to TV1 news tonight.

    Most believable one was that Broccoli causes Covid-19. I am told it was posted by a group called "Kids of the world unite"

    The test for Covid 19 is very sensitive, if you read about how it works you will see that it's more than likely that it will pick up long dead virus traces and flag them as viable.

    The test uses a multiplier effect to determine if a virus is present, in effect creating traces and copies which it then senses.

    "reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR)"

    Step 3: Detecting the COVID-19 coronavirus

    After extraction then it’s time to see whether the COVID-19 coronavirus is present in the sample. The test is what is known as a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) and is based on detecting unique sequences in the virus’ RNA by a method called reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR). Because the Chinese released the genetic sequence of the virus so quickly, that allowed tests to be developed and the methods released to the world so any country could do the test if it needed to. This is where the US screwed up. They decided to develop their own test instead. And then that ended up not working properly, which lost them valuable time.

    This part of the test also uses special reagents and again these are commercially available and imported from overseas. The kit, and a piece of equipment that switches temperatures really fast, turns any RNA present into DNA and then if any of that RNA belonged to the COVID-19 coronavirus it makes loads and loads of copies of it which can be detected. This is what gives a positive test. If none of the RNA belonged to the virus then there shouldn’t be a detectable signal.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    While I share your sentiment, I think if it were any other city, there would likely be idiots doing similar things anyway.

    Auckland or not, people in general are stupid.

    You are 100% correct. It does not matter what race, what city, what country or anything else there is no difficulty finding stupid people. It is the one thing that will never be in short supply.
