    Re: Zoo Tiger Tests Positive...

    I've read articles recently that suggest various COVID-19 tests either give a ridiculous number of false positives (mistaking basically any cold or flu for COVID-19) or give an unknown number of false positives.

    I've also read that these kinds of human-to-canid and human-to-felid transmissions are so rare as to be next to impossible.

    The more time goes on, the more I wonder whether half the world's epidemiology/virology "experts" have any clue what they're doing. Stories like this don't help.

    We can't test nurses in some areas, but a zoo animal can get tested. Messed up. Only in New York.

    "There are reports of pet dogs or cats outside the US getting infected after contact with contagious people".

    Geez..Great..Just great.
    I feel so much better now since I've completely given up all hope.

    Hmm... what is the age of consent for a tiger?
