Does the Government believe the 293 confirmed cases (as at 6 May) give an accurate reflection of the true rate of infection and spread of Covd-19 in Jersey?


What is the rate of false negative results on Covid-19 tests carried out in Jersey?



This question is asking for opinion and not information held for the purposes of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. It is therefore not possible to respond to this part of the request.


This information is accessible by other means as it is available within a previous Freedom of Information response at the following link:
