PCR samples must be run through multiple cycles to amplify the genetic material to sufficient levels for positive detection. But if you run the samples through too many cycles, you are likely to achieve a result which is entirely meaningless.
According to Kary Mullis, the inventor of the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technique, “PCR is a good tool for research, but a very bad tool for medicine (in the clinic).” This is because the technique is considered “oversensitive” for purposes of clinical diagnosis.
…one can understand why all these doctors and scientists say that a positive RT-PCR test means nothing, nothing at all in terms of medicine and clinic!
Positive RT-PCR tests, without any mention of Ct (cycle threshold) or its relation to the presence or absence of symptoms, are used as is by our governments as the exclusive argument to apply and justify their policy of severity, austerity, isolation and aggression of our freedoms, with the impossibility to travel, to meet, to live normally!
There is no medical justification for these decisions, for these governmental choices!
In an article published on the website of the New York Times (NYT) on Saturday, August 29, American experts from Harvard University are surprised that RT-PCR tests as practiced can serve as tests of contagiousness, even more so as evidence of pandemic progression in the case of SARS-CoV-2 infection .Source
Beware the Deceptive “Cycle Threshold”
Again, the number of amplification cycles used to achieve a definitive result for any given lab is called its “cycle threshold.” It is an important parameter, which the dimwitted mainstream press cannot comprehend, nor can it be bothered to reveal its import to viewers and readers.
The Wadworth Center, a New York State laboratory, analyzed the results of its July tests at the request of the NYT: 794 positive tests with a Ct of 40: “With a Ct threshold of 35, approximately half of these PCR tests would no longer be considered positive,” said the NYT. “And about 70% would no longer be considered positive with a Ct of 30! “
An appeals court in Portugal has ruled that the PCR process is not a reliable test for Sars-Cov-2, and therefore any enforced quarantine based on those test results is unlawful.
A new study from the Infectious Diseases Society of America, found that at 25 cycles of amplification, 70% of PCR test “positives” are not “cases” since the virus cannot be cultured, it’s dead. And by 35: 97% of the positives are non-clinical.
PCR is not testing for disease, it’s testing for a specific RNA pattern and this is the key pivot. When you crank it up to 25, 70% of the positive results are not really “positives” in any clinical sense, since it cannot make you or anyone else sick
So, in summary, with regard to our current “casedemic”, positive tests as they are counted today do not indicate a “case” of anything. They indicate that viral RNA was found in a nasal swab. It may be enough to make you sick, but according to the New York Times and their experts, probably won’t. And certainly not sufficient replication of the virus to make anyone else sick. But you will be sent home for ten days anyway, even if you never have a sniffle. And this is the number the media breathlessly reports… and is used to fearmonger mask mandates and lockdowns nationwide…Source
As we have mentioned before, this Chinese virus outbreak is being treated differently by governments and public health “experts” than has any other infectious disease outbreak in public health history. People dying from cancer, accident, and homicide are being counted as COVID deaths as long as they are suspected of having been infected by the virus — with or without a positive COVID test. And we are seeing how unreliable COVID tests themselves can be.
Providers are also being paid a “bounty” for COVID deaths. And all of us have noticed the special hushed voice that many persons use when discussing people who have died with COVID. People who die from other causes just do not get any respect these days.
It is not that the young are particularly stupid. It is that too many of them pay too much attention to mainstream media, and do not read much outside the internet. Lacking the perspective of time and never having felt the need for a significant attention span, they also lack the perspective they should be getting from a broad range of time-honored and validated reading. And so they become chumps for pseudo-information sources such as “Comedy Central” and the mainstream media.
Once we understand how RT-PCR testing works, it becomes impossible to let the current government routine screening strategy, inexplicably supported by the virologists in the safety councils, continue.
My hope is that, finally, properly informed, more and more people will demand that this strategy be stopped, because it is all of us, enlightened, guided by real benevolence and common sense, who must decide our collective and individual destinies.
No one else should do it for us, especially when we realize that those who decide are no longer reasonable or rational.
…. It is time for everyone to come out of this negative trance, this collective hysteria, because famine, poverty, massive unemployment will kill, mow down many more people than SARS-CoV-2!Source
