Reminder: the province has gone to once-per-month COVID reporting.


This paper examined multiple commercial RATs. For the ones available in BC (at least, which were available in BC), the Panbio (dark blue box, but NOT the Artron) was not very sensitive; BTNX Cassette was one of the best but BTNX was one of the worst. (I think that the green box tests we got were BTNX and not BTNX Cassette.) They did not test the Artron (the blue box which dominated the pharmacists’ “free basket” for the past year).


From Jeff’s wastewater spreadsheet, it looks to me like cases are trending upwards slowly.
