Question 6: Which are the false positive and false negatives and how many are there of each?
|Urine Gram stain||UTI||Total|
False positives are those whom the test finds to be positive but do not have the disease. Hence there are 3 of them.
False negatives are those whom the test finds to be negative but do, in fact, have the disease. Hence there are 2 of them.
