    Again they caused a fire in the municipal garbage dump of Comonfort Guanajuato and they are already looking for those responsible.
    By Ana Barrón

    San Miguel de Allende, Gto.- Again the municipal garbage dump of Comonfort burned in flames, but fortunately this time it was quickly controlled. The worrying thing is that it seems that it was provoked again and that who does it do not measure the consequences of this. To begin with, it puts the life of the members of emergency bodies at risk and, after the rest, the risk of the population due to the gases generated when burning this waste.

    False Negative Covid PCR Test Results
    ... Based on our clinical experience we feel confident in saying that some people have had false negative tests. This should come as no surprise given the data - see below. This has occurred at every private lab we have used and the government lab too. ...

    To sum up, most health care providers now lean towards making a clinical diagnosis, ruling in positive patients based on their symptoms and history of exposure, rather than ruling out patients on the basis of the negative tests. It would be smart for all of us to follow this logic to avoid being misled by a false negative result.
