Something bothers me about that video. There is a logical symmetry/interchangable-ity between infected and non-infected individuals. If the algorithm requires n tests for say 20% infected then it should require exactly n tests for 100%-20%=80%. Shouldn't it?
Then the claim that above 30% infection rates will require more tests than number of individuals is false.
Corrections are appreciated.
