Optimistic reverse transcription polymerase chain response (RT-PCR) exams have been used because the justification for protecting massive parts of the world locked down for the previous 9 months. Not dependable hospitalization or dying charges; simply optimistic PCR take a look at numbers — a big portion of that are from individuals who don’t have any signs of precise sickness — are the triggers behind the shutdowns.
Specialists at the moment are coming ahead in rising numbers denouncing mass PCR testing as foolhardy and nonsensical if not outright felony. Why? As a result of we’re now discovering that PCR exams not often inform us something actually helpful, at the least not after they’re used as they’ve been up to now.
Why PCR Checks Are the Unsuitable Software to Assess Pandemic Menace
We now know that PCR exams:
1. Can not distinguish between “stay” viruses and inactive (noninfectious) viral particles and subsequently can’t be used as a diagnostic software — For that reason, it’s grossly deceptive to discuss with a optimistic take a look at as a “COVID-19 case.”
As defined by Dr. Lee Merritt in her August 2020 Docs for Catastrophe Preparedness1 lecture, featured in “How Medical Technocracy Made the Plandemic Possible,” media and public well being officers seem to have purposefully conflated “circumstances” or optimistic exams with the precise sickness.
Medically talking, a “case” refers to a sick individual. It by no means ever referred to somebody who had no signs of sickness. Now hastily, 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’s not epidemiology. That’s fraud.”
2. Can not verify that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for medical signs because the take a look at can’t rule out illnesses brought on by different bacterial or viral pathogens.
3. Have not been established for monitoring the therapy of 2019-nCoV an infection.
4. Have exceptionally excessive false outcome charges — The upper the cycle threshold (CT) — i.e., the variety of amplification cycles used to detect RNA particles — the higher the prospect of a false optimistic.
Whereas any CT over 35 is deemed scientifically unjustifiable,2,3,4 the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration and the U.S. Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention advocate operating PCR exams at a CT of 40.5
Drosten exams and exams really helpful by the World Well being Group are set to a CT of 45. These excessively excessive CTs assure the looks of widespread (pandemic) an infection when an infection charges are the truth is low.
The CT Is the Key to the Pandemic
Many if not most laboratories amplify the RNA collected far too many instances, which ends up in wholesome individuals testing “optimistic” 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 exams should be run at far fewer cycles than the 40 to 45 CTs at present really helpful.
An April 2020 examine6 within the European Journal of Scientific Microbiology & Infectious Ailments 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 price is a mere 20%, which means 80% are false positives. Past 34 cycles, your probability of a optimistic PCR take a look at being a real optimistic shrinks to zero, as illustrated within the following graph from that examine.7
By operating PCR exams 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 Overview Confirms PCR Flaws
Extra just lately, a December 3, 2020, systematic evaluate8 printed within the journal of Scientific Infectious Ailments assessed the findings of 29 completely different research — all of which have been printed in 2020 — evaluating proof of SARS-CoV-2 an infection with the CTs utilized in testing. In addition they seemed 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 recommend 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 larger in specimens producing stay virus tradition.
Two research reported the odds of stay virus tradition decreased 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 hundreds …”
In different phrases, in case you have 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 if you happen to nonetheless take a look at optimistic. That is significantly true if the PCR take a look at is utilizing a better than perfect CT. As famous by the authors:9
“Full stay viruses are essential for transmission, not the fragments recognized by PCR. Potential routine testing of reference and tradition specimens and their relationship to signs, indicators and affected person co-factors must be used to outline the reliability of PCR for assessing infectious potential. These with excessive cycle threshold are unlikely to have infectious potential.”
Dwell Virus Unlikely in Checks Utilizing CT Above 24
In accordance to The New York Instances,10 researchers have been “unable to develop the coronavirus out of samples from volunteers whose PCR exams had CT values above 27,” and if the virus can’t replicate, you’ll not get sick and will not be infectious, so you can’t unfold it to others.
The Scientific Infectious Ailments evaluate11 confirms this. Below the heading “The Relationship Between RT-PCR Outcomes and Viral Tradition of SARS-CoV-2,”12 they level out that “considerably decrease” CTs have been utilized in research that accurately recognized infectious sufferers.
5 of the research included have been unable to establish any stay viruses in circumstances the place a optimistic PCR take a look at had used a CT above 24. What’s extra, in an effort 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, in case you have 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 larger, then you might be more likely to be contaminated and infectious.
Nonetheless, if you happen to would not have signs, but take a look at optimistic utilizing a PCR take a look at run at 35 CTs or larger, then it’s seemingly a false optimistic and also you pose no danger to others as you’re unlikely to hold any stay virus. Actually, offered you’re asymptomatic, you’re unlikely to be infectious even if you happen to take a look at optimistic with a take a look at run at 24 CTs or larger.
Timing of PCR Take a look at Additionally Issues
The Scientific Infectious Ailments evaluate additionally confirmed that the timing of the take a look at issues. In keeping with 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 must be achieved on this with the purpose of establishing an algorithm for integrating the outcomes of PCR with different variables, to extend the effectiveness of detecting infectious sufferers.”
One other scientific evaluate14,15 that seemed into how the timing of the take a look at influences outcomes and your danger of being infectious was posted on the preprint server medRxiv September 29, 2020. Fourteen research have been included on this evaluate.
The information present that your possibilities of getting a real optimistic on the primary day of COVID-19 symptom onset is simply about 40%. Not till Day 3 from symptom onset do you’ve an 80% probability of getting an correct PCR outcome.
By Day 5 the accuracy shrinks significantly and by Day 8 the accuracy is nil. Now, these are symptomatic individuals. While you’re asymptomatic, your odds of a optimistic PCR take a look at being correct is nearly nonexistent.
The graph under, from one of many research16 included within the evaluate (Bullard et. al.), illustrates the likelihood of a affected person being infectious (having stay virus) primarily based on the CT used and the timing of the take a look at. As defined by the evaluate authors:17
“The determine … reveals how the likelihood of SARS-CoV-2 infectious virus is larger (the crimson bars) when the cycle threshold is decrease (the blue line) and when signs to check time is shorter — past 8 days, no stay virus was detected.”
Florida to Require Disclosure of CT Knowledge
Though well being authorities know that prime CTs end in excessive charges of false positives, they don’t specify the CT used for the PCR exams they’re reporting. Luckily, that’s about to alter in Florida, which simply turned the primary state to require all labs within the state to report the CT used for his or her PCR exams.18
The Florida Well being Division 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 exams run above a sure amplification threshold. Time will inform precisely how this reporting requirement may affect pandemic response measures corresponding to masks mandates and lockdowns.
Portugal Guidelines Quarantine Based mostly on PCR Outcomes Is Illegal
In associated information, an appeals court docket in Portugal just lately dominated20,21 that the PCR take a look at is “not a dependable take a look at for SARS-CoV-2” and that “a single optimistic PCR take a look at can’t be used as an efficient prognosis of an infection.” Due to this fact, “any enforced quarantine primarily based on the outcomes is illegal.”22
The court docket additionally famous that forcing wholesome individuals to self-isolate might 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 certainly one of them examined optimistic.
A number of scientific research have been introduced forth as proof on this case, together with a September 28, 2020, examine23 in Scientific Infectious Ailments, which discovered that once you run a PCR take a look at at a CT of 35 or larger, the accuracy drops to three%, leading to a 97% false optimistic price. The court docket dominated that, primarily based on the science offered, any PCR take a look at utilizing a CT over 25 is unreliable.
Deadly Errors Present in Paper on Which PCR Testing Is Based mostly
The Portuguese appeals court docket just isn’t 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 movement of tips on how to use the PCR take a look at to diagnose SARS-CoV-2 an infection — which was shortly 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 because of “deadly 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 medical virology. In accordance 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 culprit in the COVID-19 pandemic hoax.
One of many key “deadly 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 out there. All they used was the genetic sequence printed on-line by Chinese language scientists in January 2020.
Apparently, 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
“Each 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. That they had a code, however no physique for the code. No viral morphology.
Within the fish market, it’s like supplying you with a number of bones and saying ‘that’s your fish.’ It might be any fish … Hear, 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 suppose is EEE, so you set it in … That is mainly a pc virus.
There are 10 deadly errors on this Drosten take a look at paper … However 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’s nothing on the middle of it. It’s all about code, genetics, nothing to do with actuality …
There have since been papers saying they’ve produced viral isolates. However there aren’t any controls for them. The CDC produced a paper in July … the place they mentioned: ‘Right here’s the viral isolate.’ Are you aware what they did? They swabbed one individual. One individual, who’d been to China and had chilly signs. One individual. And so they assumed he had [COVID-19] to start with. So, it’s all stuffed with holes, the entire thing.”
No Viable Virus Present in Optimistic Instances
The critique towards PCR testing is additional strengthened by a November 20, 2020, examine32 in Nature Communications, which discovered no viable virus in PCR-positive circumstances. The examine evaluated knowledge from 9,865,404 residents of Wuhan, China, who had undergone PCR testing between Might 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. But after 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, Finish the Distress
Plenty of specialists have now come ahead, calling out the COVID-19 pandemic as a merciless hoax perpetuated by fatally flawed testing. Other than this testing knowledge, there’s no proof of a deadly pandemic in any respect. Whereas there may be such a factor as COVID-19, and other people have and do die from it, there aren’t any extra deaths because 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 12 months — from one thing, something — anyway. So, except we predict we should always shut down the world and cease dwelling 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 staff are main that cost. As for what you are able to do within the meantime, contemplate:
• Turning off mainstream media information and turning to impartial specialists — Do the analysis. Learn by the science.
• Proceed 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 information on PCR testing, so you’ll be able to clarify how and why this pandemic merely isn’t a pandemic anymore.
• In case you are a medical skilled, particularly if you happen to’re a member of knowledgeable society, write an open letter to your authorities, urging them to talk to and heed suggestions from impartial specialists.
• Signal The Great Barrington Declaration,36 which requires an finish to lockdowns.
• Be part of a gaggle so that you simply can have assist. Examples of teams fashioned to struggle towards authorities overreach embrace:
◦ Us for Them, a gaggle campaigning for reopening faculties and defending youngsters’s rights within the U.Ok.
◦ The COVID Restoration Group (CRG), based by 50 conservative British MPs to struggle lockdown restrictions37
◦ The Freedom to Breathe Agency, a U.S. staff of attorneys, medical doctors, enterprise house owners and oldsters who’re preventing to guard freedom and liberty
