Good news that some have tested negative now

 

 

The rapid test is most accurate in the first 5 or so days after becoming symptomatic.  If these individuals are a- or presymptomatic, this is not the ideal test to deliver.

This tells me the system is working as designed.  On land people are still getting infected so it's important to recognize that there will be cases detected on ships.  Even the best tests can still produce incorrect results so they keep on testing and have a plan when a test is positive.  

If only we all had this capability in our daily lives the spread would drop significantly and more could be opened across society.
