Good that they are testing, but so few tested positive it must be quite hard to catch..

And that's assuming that those with a positive test actually have it.

850 tests.
How many players ? And what spread of time between repeat tests of the same players?

(As per other threads, 2 tests at same time but using separate testers / labs etc can increase the probability of a correct positive (and reduce false negatives).

If it was 850 separate people at approx the same time (give or take a couple of days) then 4 out of 850 is reasonably low. (Approx 5 in 1000 = 0.5% of the population (and ignoring false positive and false negatives)

Do they test everyone - players/coaches/medics etc?

Are they using the players tested or relying on World Beating number of individual tests done which would reduce to 425 players at most?
