Yesterday two vaccinated co-hosts of “The View,” Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, were told during the show that they had tested positive for Covid-19 and had to leave. As a result, the scheduled interview with Kamala Harris had to be done remotely. Here’s how that unfolded:

There’s an update to that story:

Navarro said a subsequent test was negative:
Feeling good and hoping it was just an inopportune, very public false positive.
Please get vaccinated and stay safe folks, so we can beat this damn thing, once and for all. pic.twitter.com/rZp45Yboz0

At this point how does anybody know if every test isn’t a false positive or a false negative?
This theatrical performance just proves to the public how unreliable these tests are. Thanks. https://t.co/idFpsjQ0vo

So a rapid test done on a million-dollar production for a VIP (Harris) turned up a false positive, apparently? Are false positives…common…? https://t.co/HOE5YPW2p1

Better a false positive than a false negative, I guess?

Perhaps a false negative? Why isn't that ever a thing?

And they decided to make a dramatic spectacle of the ‘breakthrough’ cases that turned out to be false.

How this whole thing played out was just strange.
It smells like a stunt to me.

Soooo…. How many other “positive Covid tests” these past 18 months were actually negative? https://t.co/Ao2FOoEaiL

The answer to that is anybody’s guess.
