Cyan (thinking): Oh, that doesn’t sound good . . . Or familiar?

Ah, right, she’s one of the convicts.

Cyan: Hey! Don’t worry about that, I’ll clean it up. Do you know how to get to the isolation wing?

Purple: S-stay back . . . If I {koff} get you sick —

Cyan: No, don’t worry about that! I just found out, I have antibodies!

Dramatic irony says Cyan gets reinfected.

My wager is Cyan gets Plot Armor making lemonade from the lemons of “Wait, I was infected?!” to be a decent human to Violet.

I’m more worried about Violet. Didn’t Leif implied his parents are dead? Maybe his information was correct …

2 words: False positive

At least with the most common real-world COVID tests, the test itself won’t “find” anything that’s not actually the virus. You only get false positives when humans mix up the tests somehow — contaminating a negative sample with virus from somewhere else, mislabeling a positive sample with the name of some other subject who was negative, and so on.

Here, the doctor is only doing one test at a time, announcing the results right away before moving on to the next one, and the subject is the only person in the room. Under those conditions, it would be really hard to get a result with somebody else’s antibodies mixed in.

Is it just me, or are the tags, and more to read side bar in a different font then they were on Friday? It looks smaller? less serif?

Not just you!

Should be about the same size, but there’s a new sans-serif font, yeah. I decided I wanted that kind of “auto-generated metadata” text to have its own look, instead of being “the fancy title font but smaller” or “the main-text font but more italic.”

(I made a ton of other CSS edits and fixes over the weekend, the fonts are just the most visible. Most of them were more in the vein of “deleting properties that no longer do anything” and “combining properties that were overriding each other”…and a lot of “commenting everything up so I don’t have to remember what each line does.”)
