Health professionals have already warned: “We must save lives, not Christmas”.

The first of all, of course, is not to attend meetings with other people if you are suffering from symptoms similar to coronavirus.

Because no, you shouldn’t trust the tests at all, as they don’t trust asymptomatic people. This could cause a serious problem at Christmas lunches and dinners.
