PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) testing has become the gold standard in testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the explosion of new cases is being used as evidence for ordering fresh lockdowns all around the world.
Ignoring the fact that lockdowns were a total disaster in countries like Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, Belgium and of course the United States, the powers that be are again calling for and instituting lockdowns. It is almost as if repeating a bad strategy will somehow this time around produce a positive result.
In order to understand why PCR testing is not only inaccurate but also downright dangerous, a little history is necessary. The PCR test was discovered by a scientist Kary B. Mullís, who died in August 2019 before the outbreak of COVID-19. This test was designed to pick up genetic material. A positive test merely means that either RNA or DNA has been found and through the process of chemical amplification anywhere from 35 to 45 times and is then recorded as a positive test.
The PCR test does not mean an active infection is present but only that genetic particles thought to be related to SARS-CoV-2 are present. Professor Christian Drosten of Charity Hospital in Berlin developed the version of PCR testing that is used all around the world today to test for COVID-19. Is there really a COVID-19 pandemic or is it a PCR test pandemic?
I propose that it’s the latter. Professor Drosten developed the PCR test without ever having seen the original Wuhan virus. Professor Drosten used an old SARS virus hoping it would be similar enough to detect the SARS-CoV-2virus. The actual verification of the efficacy of his PCR test was confirmed by China, yes China a country we should always believe because of their incredible transparency and honesty.
Of course the WHO closely followed by the CDC highly recommended that the PCR test should become the world’s standard in determining the presence of the new virus. It’s also apparent that the WHO is totally subservient to the whims of China. A positive PCR test does not mean an infection is present, It simply means that it is positive for something that resembles SARS-Cov-2. In a huge development occurring in Liverpool England recently a new test was put to use to determine the spread of COVID-19. Liverpool is supposedly having one of the largest outbreaks of COVID-19 in England. This new test is called the “Lateral Flow Test “ and it actually tests for a protein in order to deliver a positive test.
In some very surprising results among a mainly asymptomatic group of people it returned less than 1/4 positive results as compared to the “gold standard PCR.” This is a remarkable result and if further verified will blow a huge hole in the argument that COVID-19 is spreading and draconian lockdowns are required. I’m sure the pharmaceutical industry, government health bureaucrats and most of the media will quickly try to discredit these results since it goes against the narrative that COVID-19 is increasingly becoming out of control and necessitates lockdowns and of course a massive vaccine program.
Testing asymptomatic patients has always been a tricky proposition. If people show no symptoms how can we assume they are infected and highly contagious? Especially in light of testing procedures which could be very suspect. There is a wide variation around the world in countries that have been affected by COVID-19. Many countries that have lockdowned severely show huge amounts of new cases and yet countries like Sweden with minimal lockdowns fair far better.
It is not black-and-white and masks, social distancing and lockdowns don’t seem to be the answer. In fact, the CDC just released the total death count in the U.S. as of Nov. 18, 2020 and it was 2.5 million. In 2019, the total death count was 2.85 million, so it looks like this year will be similar to last year, proving many of the deaths listed as COVID-19 were actually deaths that would have occured without the virus.
Recently scientist have been talking about cross immunities and T-cell reactions as a possible explanation for variations in disease outcomes around the globe. The Lateral flow test and its rapid implementation may yet bring the world back from the precipice of both economic and mental disaster to a state of reality. Shutting down a large part of the global economy due to panicked and very faulty reasoning is causing untold damage and misery to much of the world’s population.
