  Watch Ali Wentworth rejoin husband George Stephanopoulos, daughters after 16 days in COVID-19 isolation The comedy star and author walked down the stairs of her home to claps and cheers as Destiny's Child's 'Survivor' played on one of her kid's phones.Comedian and author Ali Wentworth -- who revealed her COVID-19 diagnosis about two weeks ago -- has ended her isolation period during which she fought and recovered from the virus in her bedroom.

Among those items that tested positive for the coronavirus were samples from a goat, a papaya and a pheasant, all at once exposing the total science fraud behind coronavirus testing . As we’ve warned for over a month, most coronavirus tests produce huge numbers of false positives . The testing kits are largely made in China, and either through gross incompetence or malicious intent, China-made lab tests are notorious for being so inaccurate that they’re practically useless.

PCR tests and antigen tests are both diagnostic tests , which means that they can be used to determine whether you currently have an active coronavirus infection. However, there are important differences between these two types of tests . PCR tests detect the presence of the virus's genetic material using a technique called reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, or RT-PCR. Antigen tests detect specific proteins on the surface of the coronavirus . They are sometimes referred to as rapid diagnostic tests because it can take less than an hour to get the test results.

“It’s not like we were around people who were sick,” Porter said.

Posey and Porter shared their family’s story Saturday, before they learned of Billy Ray and Michael’s deaths.

Posey said he believed people in Gadsden need to “wake up” to the danger of the virus that cost his wife her life, and take the social-distancing guidelines seriously. If loved ones become ill and must be hospitalized, the recommended measures are not optional, they are enforced.

Posey said when he was hospitalized last year, his wife told him “Don’t let me stay a night.”

“Those seven nights she spent (hospitalized) were miserable for me, and I know they were for her,” Posey said.

Phacethia took medication for rheumatoid arthritis and had slight high blood pressure. She wasn’t being treated for the underlying conditions -- the heart, lung and kidney problems -- so often cited as making people more vulnerable to the virus.

For Phacethia, he said, the virus made her very weak, “it just drained her.” Her body started shutting down, he said.

“She just couldn’t get right,” Posey said, and had to be hospitalized. ”She was alone.“

“She really was a good person,” Posey said. “She was the type person, when she left the house, she presented herself well. She didn’t go around and collect a lot of friends.”

With the toll it’s taken so far on their family, they know the seriousness of the virus and want others to know also — that’s why they spoke out.

“People aren’t taking this virus seriously,” especially, it seems the younger people, Posey said. He’s seen people come to visit hugging on each other.

“I see people out without masks, ” Posey said. “They know it’s happening, but they’re not taking it seriously.”

Both Porter and Posey are troubled by people shouting to re-open businesses and gathering places, as they grieve.

They said they know of no factors that put their family at risk to be hit so hard by COVID-19 — nothing that makes their family any different than any other family in this community.
