Exposure app could be as unreliable as the tests.

The app -- called COVID Alert and available on Android or Apple devices -- will compile anonymized data and use reports from confirmed positive COVID-19 cases to notify Canadians when theyve been in proximity to someone who has the virus. It has received the stamp of approval from federal and provincial privacy watchdogs, though it leaves infection contact tracing up to public health officials.

While the initial rollout is just underway in Ontario, Canadians across the country are able, and are being encouraged to download the app in anticipation of more provincial and territorial health authorities signing on to use the new software. Talks are ongoing with other provinces to come on board in the coming days, including New Brunswick and British Columbia, with a federal source saying that all Atlantic provinces are very close to signing on to use the app.

The federal government-backed exposure notification smartphone app has launched, marking the beginning of a new frontier in the coronavirus fight: alerting participating Canadians when they come in proximity to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
To this day no one knows all the details surrounding this so called virus.
We aren't sure of that either.
Medical experts when we read the details are still baffled.
Ya gotta wonder.

That app isn't about coronahoax tracing...It's to Commie track your every movement, who you are in contact with, where you go.....Coming soon the Commie "Social credit system"...if your score gets to low off to the Gulags never to be seen again......Jew commie countries in eastern Europe used to use a similar system...too many strikes against your name off to the Gulags in Siberia and never seen again
It's been used for 3 months in Australia now and surprise, surprise they don't give a crap about coronahoax
COVIDfail – the Australian coronavirus tracing app that can’t find anyone

And as I was suspecting, the swabs themselves are pre-infected with cv19 to spread the disease.
Swab tests for COVID-19 are not seeded with virus

CLAIM: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent out COVID-19 tests seeded with the virus.
APS ASSESSMENT: False. Social media users shared an illustration of a COVID-19 nasal swab test where a six inch long swab is placed into the cavity between the nose and mouth with false information that the CDC sent out COVID-19 tests that contained the live virus. The post asserts that COVID-19 tests are tainted and could expose people to the virus.
According to one Instagram post that shared the illustration with false information: COVID-19 test has the virus ...the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sent states tainted lab tests in early February that were themselves seeded with the virus, federal officials have confirmed.

The Instagram caption further states: ... if one person in the family could have gotten tested with one of those tainted Planted COVID-19 tests that would potentially expose the entire family to the virus
In February, the CDC distributed a batch of faulty COVID-19 test kits to laboratories, but the kit did not contain the live virus. The contaminated tests were not sent out to patients.
The CDC produced two types of test kits in January. There was no evidence that the first batch had any issues. The second type of test kit, which was developed to be manufactured by CDC was contaminated. The Department of Health & Human Services published an investigation of the failed rollout on June 19.
The report states: After receiving these tests from CDC in early February, public health laboratories attempted to validate the test kits before using them on real specimens. They could not validate the testa negative control gave a positive resultand thus, the test kits were not used and no patient received an inaccurate test result.
According to the review, One of the three reagents in this initial batch of manufactured test kits was likely contaminated. These tests are so sensitive that this contamination could have been caused by a single person walking through an area with positive control material and then later entering an area where tests reagents were being manipulated, the report states.

The false post implies that nasal swab tests are tainted with the virus.
We only use sterile swabs, Maldonado explained. Thats actually the problem with getting the swab is that we have to make sure that theyve been sterilized. We cant just take Q-tips from a box.
Maldonado is the senior author of a study that examined swabbing the nasal passages to test for COVID-19. The point of the nasal swab test is to scrape a little bit of the cells lining the nose so that you can get cells that might have virus in them, she said.
