    Positivity rate .. What is the minimum number of tests required to determine the positivity rate ? If you just test one person and he turns out positive then the positivity rate is 100% .. This is happening on other parts of karnataka ..I cant believe that the positivity rate on Gulbarga is lower than DK . In DK the test percentage is higher ..hence the positivity rate could be higher . There should be minimum number of test required to determine the positivity rate
