COVID-19 Testing Scandal Deepens
Positive reverse transcription polymerase chain response (RT-PCR) assessments have been used because the justification for maintaining giant parts of the world locked down for the previous 9 months. Not dependable hospitalization or loss of life charges; simply optimistic PCR take a look at numbers — a big portion of that are from individuals who haven’t any signs of precise sickness — are the triggers behind the shutdowns.
Experts at the moment are coming ahead in rising numbers denouncing mass PCR testing as foolhardy and nonsensical if not outright legal. Why? Because we’re now discovering that PCR assessments not often inform us something really helpful, at the least not once they’re used as they’ve been to this point.
Why PCR Tests Are the Wrong Tool to Assess Pandemic Threat
We now know that PCR assessments:
1. Cannot distinguish between “live” viruses and inactive (noninfectious) viral particles and subsequently can’t be used as a diagnostic software — For this cause, it’s grossly deceptive to confer with a optimistic take a look at as a “COVID-19 case.”
As defined by Dr. Lee Merritt in her August 2020 Doctors for Disaster Preparedness1 lecture, featured in “How Medical Technocracy Made the Plandemic Possible,” media and public well being officers seem to have purposefully conflated “cases” or optimistic assessments with the precise sickness.
Medically talking, a “case” refers to a sick particular person. It by no means ever referred to somebody who had no signs of sickness. Now impulsively, this well-established medical time period, “case,” has been arbitrarily redefined to imply somebody who examined optimistic for the presence of noninfectious viral RNA. As famous by Merritt, “That is not epidemiology. That’s fraud.”
2. Cannot affirm that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for scientific signs because the take a look at can not rule out illnesses attributable to different bacterial or viral pathogens.
3. Have not been established for monitoring the remedy of 2019-nCoV an infection.
4. Have exceptionally excessive false consequence charges — The greater the cycle threshold (CT) — i.e., the variety of amplification cycles used to detect RNA particles — the better the prospect of a false optimistic.
While any CT over 35 is deemed scientifically unjustifiable,2,3,4 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advocate operating PCR assessments at a CT of 40.5
Drosten assessments and assessments really useful by the World Health Organization are set to a CT of 45. These excessively excessive CTs assure the looks of widespread (pandemic) an infection when an infection charges are actually low.
The CT Is the Key to the Pandemic
Many if not most laboratories amplify the RNA collected far too many occasions, which leads to wholesome individuals testing “positive” for SARS-CoV-2 an infection and being ordered to take off work and self-isolate for 2 weeks.
To optimize accuracy and keep away from imposing pointless hardship on wholesome individuals, PCR assessments should be run at far fewer cycles than the 40 to 45 CTs presently really useful.
An April 2020 research6 within the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases confirmed that to get 100% confirmed actual positives, the PCR take a look at should be run at 17 cycles. Above 17 cycles, accuracy drops dramatically.
By the time you get to 33 cycles, the accuracy fee is a mere 20%, that means 80% are false positives. Beyond 34 cycles, your likelihood of a optimistic PCR take a look at being a real optimistic shrinks to zero, as illustrated within the following graph from that research.7
By operating PCR assessments at 40 to 45 amplification cycles, you find yourself with the false look of an outbreak, and this grossly flawed testing scheme is what authorities leaders are basing their masks mandates and lockdown orders on.

Scientific Review Confirms PCR Flaws
More just lately, a December 3, 2020, systematic evaluation8 printed within the journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases assessed the findings of 29 totally different research — all of which have been printed in 2020 — evaluating proof of SARS-CoV-2 an infection with the CTs utilized in testing. They additionally regarded on the timing of the take a look at, and the way symptom severity pertains to PCR take a look at outcomes. As reported by the authors:
“The information counsel a relationship between the time from onset of symptom to the timing of the specimen take a look at, cycle threshold (CT) and symptom severity. Twelve research reported that CT values have been considerably decrease and log copies greater in specimens producing stay virus tradition.
Two research reported the odds of stay virus tradition lowered by roughly 33% for each one unit enhance in CT. Six of eight research reported detectable RNA for longer than 14 days however infectious potential declined after day 8 even amongst circumstances with ongoing excessive viral masses …”
In different phrases, when you’ve got signs of COVID-19, by Day 8 from the onset of signs, the possibilities of you spreading it to others begins to say no, and in the times following, you might be unlikely to be infectious even for those who nonetheless take a look at optimistic. This is especially true if the PCR take a look at is utilizing a better than best CT. As famous by the authors:9
“Complete live viruses are necessary for transmission, not the fragments identified by PCR. Prospective routine testing of reference and culture specimens and their relationship to symptoms, signs and patient co-factors should be used to define the reliability of PCR for assessing infectious potential. Those with high cycle threshold are unlikely to have infectious potential.”
Live Virus Unlikely in Tests Using CT Above 24
According to The New York Times,10 researchers have been “unable to grow the coronavirus out of samples from volunteers whose PCR tests had CT values above 27,” and if the virus can not replicate, you’ll not get unwell and usually are not infectious, so you can’t unfold it to others.
The Clinical Infectious Diseases evaluation11 confirms this. Under the heading “The Relationship Between RT-PCR Results and Viral Culture of SARS-CoV-2,”12 they level out that “significantly lower” CTs have been utilized in research that appropriately recognized infectious sufferers.
Five of the research included have been unable to determine any stay viruses in circumstances the place a optimistic PCR take a look at had used a CT above 24. What’s extra, with a view to produce stay virus tradition, a affected person whose PCR take a look at used a CT at or above 35 needed to be symptomatic.
So, to make clear, when you’ve got signs of COVID-19 and take a look at optimistic utilizing a PCR take a look at that was run at 35 amplification cycles or greater, then you might be prone to be contaminated and infectious.
However, for those who should not have signs, but take a look at optimistic utilizing a PCR take a look at run at 35 CTs or greater, then it’s doubtless a false optimistic and also you pose no threat to others as you’re unlikely to hold any stay virus. In reality, offered you’re asymptomatic, you’re unlikely to be infectious even for those who take a look at optimistic with a take a look at run at 24 CTs or greater.
Timing of PCR Test Also Matters
The Clinical Infectious Diseases evaluation additionally confirmed that the timing of the take a look at issues. According to the authors:13
“… there seems to be a time window throughout which RNA detection is at its highest with low cycle threshold and better risk of culturing a stay virus, with viral load and likelihood of rising stay virus of SARS-CoV2 …
We suggest that additional work ought to be completed on this with the purpose of developing an algorithm for integrating the outcomes of PCR with different variables, to extend the effectiveness of detecting infectious sufferers.”
Another scientific evaluation14,15 that regarded into how the timing of the take a look at influences outcomes and your threat of being infectious was posted on the preprint server medRxiv September 29, 2020. Fourteen research have been included on this evaluation.
The information present that your possibilities of getting a real optimistic on the primary day of COVID-19 symptom onset is just about 40%. Not till Day 3 from symptom onset do you’ve got an 80% likelihood of getting an correct PCR consequence.
By Day 5 the accuracy shrinks significantly and by Day 8 the accuracy is nil. Now, these are symptomatic individuals. When you’re asymptomatic, your odds of a optimistic PCR take a look at being correct is just about nonexistent.
The graph under, from one of many research16 included within the evaluation (Bullard et. al.), illustrates the likelihood of a affected person being infectious (having stay virus) based mostly on the CT used and the timing of the take a look at. As defined by the evaluation authors:17
“The figure … shows how the probability of SARS-CoV-2 infectious virus is greater (the red bars) when the cycle threshold is lower (the blue line) and when symptoms to test time is shorter — beyond 8 days, no live virus was detected.”
Florida to Require Disclosure of CT Data
Even although well being authorities know that prime CTs end in excessive charges of false positives, they don’t specify the CT used for the PCR assessments they’re reporting. Fortunately, that’s about to vary in Florida, which simply grew to become the primary state to require all labs within the state to report the CT used for his or her PCR assessments.18
The Florida Health Department issued the order December 3, 2020, and labs should adjust to the brand new obligatory reporting rule inside seven days.19
This might show fairly attention-grabbing, particularly if the state well being division decides to invalidate optimistic outcomes obtained from assessments run above a sure amplification threshold. Time will inform precisely how this reporting requirement may affect pandemic response measures resembling masks mandates and lockdowns.
Portugal Rules Quarantine Based on PCR Results Is Unlawful
In associated information, an appeals courtroom in Portugal just lately dominated20,21 that the PCR take a look at is “not a reliable test for SARS-CoV-2” and that “a single positive PCR test cannot be used as an effective diagnosis of infection.” Therefore, “any enforced quarantine based on the results is unlawful.”22
The courtroom additionally famous that forcing wholesome individuals to self-isolate could possibly be a violation of their basic proper to liberty. The case was introduced by 4 German vacationers who had been pressured to self-quarantine after one among them examined optimistic.
Several scientific research have been introduced forth as proof on this case, together with a September 28, 2020, research23 in Clinical Infectious Diseases, which discovered that while you run a PCR take a look at at a CT of 35 or greater, the accuracy drops to three%, leading to a 97% false optimistic fee. The courtroom dominated that, based mostly on the science offered, any PCR take a look at utilizing a CT over 25 is unreliable.
Fatal Errors Found in Paper on Which PCR Testing Is Based
The Portuguese appeals courtroom will not be alone in its critique of the PCR take a look at getting used because the sole standards for quarantine. November 30, 2020, the scientific paper24 describing the work circulate of find out how to use the PCR take a look at to diagnose SARS-CoV-2 an infection — which was rapidly accepted as the usual by the WHO and utilized the world over — was challenged25 by 22 worldwide scientists who demand that the paper be retracted on account of “fatal errors.”26
The paper in query was written by Christian Drosten, Ph.D., a German virologist, and Victor Corman, who heads a German working group on virus diagnostics and scientific virology. According to Reiner Fuellmich,27 founding member of the German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss,28 or ACU),29,30 Drosten is a key perpetrator within the COVID-19 pandemic hoax.
One of the important thing “fatal errors” within the Corman-Drosten paper is that they wrote it — and developed the PCR take a look at — earlier than there was any viral isolate obtainable. All they used was the genetic sequence printed on-line by Chinese scientists in January 2020.
Interestingly, the paper was printed a mere 24 hours after it was submitted, which suggests it wasn’t even peer-reviewed earlier than being embraced by the entire world. Undercover DC interviewed Kevin Corbett, Ph.D., one of many 22 scientists who at the moment are demanding the paper’s retraction, who said:31
“Every scientific rationale for the event of that take a look at has been completely destroyed by this paper. It’s like Hiroshima/Nagasaki to the COVID take a look at.
When Drosten developed the take a look at, China hadn’t given them a viral isolate. They developed the take a look at from a sequence in a gene financial institution. Do you see? China gave them a genetic sequence with no corresponding viral isolate. They had a code, however no physique for the code. No viral morphology.
In the fish market, it’s like providing you with just a few bones and saying ‘that’s your fish.’ It could possibly be any fish … Listen, the Corman-Drosten paper, there’s nothing from a affected person in it. It’s all from gene banks. And the bits of the virus sequence that weren’t there they made up.
They synthetically created them to fill within the blanks. That’s what genetics is; it’s a code. So, its ABBBCCDDD and also you’re lacking some, what you assume is EEE, so you place it in … This is mainly a pc virus.
There are 10 deadly errors on this Drosten take a look at paper … But right here is the underside line: There was no viral isolate to validate what they have been doing. The PCR merchandise of the amplification didn’t correspond to any viral isolate at the moment. I name it ‘donut ring science.’ There is nothing on the heart of it. It’s all about code, genetics, nothing to do with actuality …
There have since been papers saying they’ve produced viral isolates. But there aren’t any controls for them. The CDC produced a paper in July … the place they stated: ‘Here’s the viral isolate.’ Do you recognize what they did? They swabbed one particular person. One particular person, who’d been to China and had chilly signs. One particular person. And they assumed he had [COVID-19] to start with. So, it’s all stuffed with holes, the entire thing.”
No Viable Virus Found in Positive Cases
The critique in opposition to PCR testing is additional strengthened by a November 20, 2020, research32 in Nature Communications, which discovered no viable virus in PCR-positive circumstances. The research evaluated information from 9,865,404 residents of Wuhan, China, who had undergone PCR testing between May 14 and June 1, 2020.
A complete of 300 examined optimistic however had no signs. Of the 34,424 individuals with a historical past of COVID-19, 107 examined optimistic a second time. Yet once they did virus cultures on these 407 people who had examined optimistic (both for the primary or second time), no stay virus was discovered.
Expose the Fraud, End the Misery
A variety of specialists have now come ahead, calling out the COVID-19 pandemic as a merciless hoax perpetuated by fatally flawed testing. Aside from this testing information, there’s no proof of a deadly pandemic in any respect. While there’s such a factor as COVID-19, and folks have and do die from it, there aren’t any extra deaths on account of it.33,34,35
In different phrases, the overall mortality for 2020 is regular. The pandemic has not killed extra individuals than would die in any given yr — from one thing, something — anyway. So, except we predict we should always shut down the world and cease residing as a result of individuals die from coronary heart illness, diabetes, most cancers, the flu or the rest, then there’s no cause to close down the world as a result of some individuals occur to die from COVID-19.
The excellent news is the hoax is beginning to be uncovered, and can proceed to be uncovered as extra circumstances are introduced earlier than the courts of the world. Fuellmich and his ACU authorized crew are main that cost. As for what you are able to do within the meantime, contemplate:
• Turning off mainstream media information and turning to unbiased specialists — Do the analysis. Read by means of the science.
• Continue to counter the censorship by asking questions — The extra questions are requested, the extra solutions will come to gentle. Arm your self with mortality statistics and the details on PCR testing, so you’ll be able to clarify how and why this pandemic merely isn’t a pandemic anymore.
• If you’re a medical skilled, particularly for those who’re a member of an expert society, write an open letter to your authorities, urging them to talk to and heed suggestions from unbiased specialists.
• Sign The Great Barrington Declaration,36 which requires an finish to lockdowns.
• Join a bunch so that you simply can have help. Examples of teams shaped to combat in opposition to authorities overreach embrace:
◦ Us for Them, a bunch campaigning for reopening faculties and defending youngsters’s rights within the U.Ok.
◦ The COVID Recovery Group (CRG), based by 50 conservative British MPs to combat lockdown restrictions37
◦ The Freedom to Breathe Agency, a U.S. crew of attorneys, medical doctors, enterprise house owners and oldsters who’re preventing to guard freedom and liberty
