HMOs resume publicizing test results after 8 mistakes found

HMOs resume publicizing coronavirus test results after some errors were found in a previous batch, prompting a freeze for experts to reevaluate the data, the Ynet news site reports.

The Health Ministry says Saturday just eight out of 6,000 tests were found to be incorrect as a result of a computer error, and that the mistakes were caught before the results were sent back. But fears that more tests were inaccurate led the HMOs to temporarily refrain from alerting Israelis about their test results.
