#6 But they all claimed to be fully vaccinated. Either someone is lying or their vaccines didn't work

#7 #6 Vaccine is not a force field that kills any virus coming near. It, if successful, induces a more rapid, powerful, and specific immune response - and therefore, much lighter disease - when encountering the virus.
That is, vaccinated people (unless they're very old, or have some other problem leading to impaired immune system) have asymptomatic infection. But they still test positive.

#8 Or, the virus gets in and can be discovered in testing, but never gets active because the immune response is ready to defend.

#9 "or have some other problem"

Or in this case, an overabundance of 'Virtue Signalling'.

#10 

Would not surprise me if EVERY quorum avoiding elected official "CLAIMS" they are too sick to vote.

It is the perfect Democrat agenda staged play and voting dodge. Use the C-19/21 to avoid the recall to quorum, while increasing their needed virus panic for continued control again.

#11 I believe what grom says but I still don't think this story smells right.

#12 Could be they have the PCR test turned up to 11* which makes it overly sensitive and it is simply detecting viral wreckage.

* or whatever the actual value for the number of amplification cycles is

#13 Most positive results are false-positive because if you turn the sensitivity down enough to avoid them, you miss most of true positives. See False positives and false negatives on Wikipedia.

#17 Link fixed.

g(r)omgoru, to make a hot link: copy the URL, then type a bit of descriptive text in the comment box to attach it to, highlight it, click on the icon of the Earth sitting on a bit of chain that you’ll see in the second row below the comment box, then paste the URL in the box that pops up, obliterating the placeholder http:// as you do so. Click OK to set it.

I highly recommend clicking on Preview and testing the result to be sure it works, so that it doesn’t create a different kind of oops before submitting the comment. ;-)

#18 It does help to closely read the thread before offering helpful suggestions — sorry about that, g(r)omgoru. Next time just do a preview to check that you did all the steps you already knew without any coaching from me, k?

#25 #19 I'm saying no problem if somebody vaccinated tests positive. Somebody vaccinated develops symptoms is problem.

#26 I also notice that the photo showing the case of beer on the plane with them has been mostly scrubbed (or photo-shopped) from most web news outlets.

#30 I use wiki because it's a convenient reference - you could find the same explanation in any textbook on probability (conditional probability chapter)
