Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

248 cases, 5 deaths. Last Saturday was 274 cases. Stop it, you'll upset Everidey. 115 of the 248 (46%) are false positives at a conservative False Positive Rate estimate of 0.8%. No they're not. The false positive rate is much lower - testing isn't done by randomly sampling the population - it's fo...

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

De Gascun freely admits the Positivity rate today is 2.2% and the False Positive rate is between 1.0-3.0%.
