STUDENT CLAIMS TO HAVE PERFORMED UNOFFICIAL CORONAVIRUS TESTS ON 50+ STANFORD AFFILIATES, ALLEGEDLY IDENTIFYING TWO CASES
>A Stanford student ran ~50 unofficial COVID-19 tests for Stanford affiliates from his research lab, he confirmed to FoHo on Wednesday. FoHo sources and messages obtained by FoHo confirmed that he was offering under-the-table tests to friends who were otherwise unable to access them.
>Because his research lab had access to the necessary reagents, he told FoHo, he was able to independently perform the tests. He began offering them to friends as well as friends of friends.
>In one case, two undergraduate students wrote that they were tested through a non-standard testing procedure by a friend with access to extra testing materials, according to GroupMe messages obtained by FoHo. The student confirmed that he was the person who tested the two undergrads.
>In another case, the student offered a “contraband” COVID-19 test to a friend, according to a text message obtained by FoHo.
>The student told FoHo that after two Stanford affiliates initially tested positive through his unofficial COVID-19 test, they later tested positive through an official test. It is unclear whether these students were included in any of Stanford’s official counts.
Pretty fucking 水. Government can't get enough tests togther, and so some kid is selling tests.
