Expert Answer
Let E1 and E2 be the events that a person suffering from COVID-19 and a person not not suffering from COVID-19.
As per the question P(E1) = 1/100 = 0.01
Now, P(E1) + P(E2) = 1
P(E2) = 1 - P(E1) = 1 - 0.01 = 0.99
P(A|E1) = 99% = 0.95
P(A|E2) = 0.5% = 0.005
Probability that a person not loving disease, given that his test result is positive, is given by .
By using Baye's theorem, we obtain
P(E2|A) = P(E2) P(A|E2)/{P(E1) P(A|E1) + P(E2) P(A|E2)}
