The FDA has requested removal of the PCR test for EUA on Dec 31, 2021 because it is unreliable and can’t differentiate between Influenza and COVID or other substances and admitted in a memo from 12/14 that high cycle thresholds on PCR tests for Sars-Cov-2 result in false positives. Future tests will be done “under the new WHO guidelines”, running 25-30 cycles instead of more than 35. This in turn, will result in the number of “positive Covid cases” plummeting, making it appear, at first, as if vaccines work.
KARY MULLIS: WHAT HE SAID ABOUT THE PCR TEST ~ COVID1984 Dr Kary Mullis, the Nobel Prize laureate who invented the PCR process, has been adamant that the test was never meant as a diagnostic tool. “When it comes to Covid, the presence of viral particles picked up by the PCR technique does not and has not been quantitatively linked to an active ‘symptomatic’ infection. It simply cannot be so, because infection threshold as a result of viral load is different for each patient.” It turns out, if you ‘cycle’ over around 25 times, the false positivity of Covid infection starts getting very high.”

Cahill, President of the World's Doctors Alliance: Lengthy discussion of the fraudulent nature of the PCR tests and the ability to now require sequencing of the tests and bring lawsuits against false positives as the basis for forced sequestration or lockdowns and isolation in hospitals. No US labs have shown their PCR tests can differentiate between COVID and Influenza. The CDC implemented a recall of PCR testing within 24 hours after the right was won to sequence PCR tests to determine the accuracy of PCR test positives. Huge harm and suffering has been caused by these vaccines. McCullough: The vaccines are failing. Months after the vaccinations patients are developing neurological problems including paralysis, seizures, blindness, problems swallowing. We will see more and more morbidity and mortality.

June 25, 2021 WHO has statements AGAINST asymptomatic testing in most circumstances except senior facility workers and some contact situations. Please message this hard as we need to stamp out useless --producing mostly false positives-- testing in facilities, travel, businesses, and sports.
- Testing of asymptomatic individuals with NAAT or Ag-RDTs is currently recommended only for specific groups including contacts of confirmed or probable COVID-19 cases and frequently exposed groups such as health care workers and long-term care facility workers.
- Widespread screening of asymptomatic individuals is not a currently recommended strategy due to the significant costs associated with it and the lack of data on its operational effectiveness.

- Now, as over 100 million Americans have been “vaccinated” against COVID-19, the CDC is lowering the CT from 40 to 28, but only when diagnosing vaccine breakthrough cases — cases where fully vaccinated individuals are diagnosed with COVID-19
- To make matters worse, the CDC also will no longer record mild or asymptomatic infections of those who were immunized as “COVID cases.” The only cases that now count as COVID cases for someone immunized with the COVID-19 vaccine are those that result in hospitalization or death

COVID Fraud – Lawyers & Medical Experts start legal proceedings against W.H.O and World Leaders for ‘Crimes against Humanity’. May 15, 2021. ... Fuellmich and his team present the faulty PCR test and the order for doctors to label any comorbidity death as a Covid death as fraud. The PCR test was never designed to detect pathogens and is 100% faulty at 35 cycles. All the PCR tests overseen by the CDC are set at 37 to 45 cycles. The CDC admits that any tests over 28 cycles are not admissible for a positive reliable result. This alone invalidates over 90% of the alleged covid cases / ”infections” tracked by the use of this faulty test.
CDC wants more data on breakthrough cases. Notice they are looking for positives with a cycle threshold less than 28. Suddenly the CDC's rules have changed about what a "case" really is... At least they are going to collect data. CDC, changes PCR test CT cycles and criteria for definition as a COVID case (to reduce the number of "breakthrough cases" reported in those who received the experimental COVID jab?)

Lateral Flow Tests Too Inaccurate for Mass Testing, Major Review Finds March 2021. By Will Jones.

Kids, Schools and COVID Tests — What Are the Risks? March 2021. by Alliance for Natural Health International Researchers warn of brain injury risks for millions of children who are now going to routinely undergo nasal swab tests administered by nonexperts... the improper use of nasal swabs used in PCR or lateral flow testing may result in damage to the delicate membrane protecting the brain. But if you were to believe the fact-checkers, you’d assume this is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. But as has been demonstrated in many other instances, the fact checkers have got it wrong again. There is a risk — and that risk gets greater as more and more untrained people (now including children) administer their own swabs. In October 2020, a case report was published in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery detailing the case of a woman whose brain membrane was pierced by a COVID test swab resulting in the leakage of cerebrospinal fluid. A second woman in the U.S. recently had a similar experience. Assessing the use of nasal swabs, researchers publishing in JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery issued warnings about the risks for the millions who are now routinely going to undergo tests, especially from inexpertly administered nasal swabs... the cribriform plate, the significant part that separates the brain from the nasal cavity is a delicate, soft, honey-comb or sieve-like structure that is thin and narrow with tiny perforations. ...Why lateral flow testing in schools is deeply misleading — and a waste of public money
Asymptomatic transmission of covid-19 December 2020. The only test for live virus is viral culture. PCR and lateral flow tests do not distinguish live virus.

The cycle thresholds (Cts) at which reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (rtPCR) tests for covid-19 become positive are intimately associated with both viral load, and covid-19 infectiousness (i.e. ability to culture live virus). Clinical data indicate lower Cts, and hence larger viral loads, independently predict greater covid-19 mortality when patients are hospitalized for symptomatic covid-19 pneumonia.

Evidence emerges that COVID tests are faulty. FDA and CDC admit as much Lockdowns around the world are based on rising numbers of positive test results, many of which are likely to be incorrect. December 2020
WHO Updates Guidance on PCR Tests 20 January 2021. Recommends Re-Testing to Confirm Positives. Says “as disease prevalence decreases, risk of false positives increases…Provide the Ct value in the report to health care provider.”
WHO guidance Diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2 states that careful interpretation of weak positive results is needed (1). The cycle threshold (Ct) needed to detect virus is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load. Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken and retested using the same or different NAT technology…
WHO reminds IVD users that disease prevalence alters the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence decreases, the risk of false positive increases (2). This means that the probability that a person who has a positive result (SARS-CoV-2 detected) is truly infected with SARS-CoV-2 decreases as prevalence decreases, irrespective of the claimed specificity.

Talking about PCR False Positives (A “case-demic” not a pandemic) Shows quotes of Dr. Fauci re. asymptomatic spread. Human chromosome 8 can register as a false positive. Contact tracing asymptomatic people makes no sense. Asymptomatic people are not spreading disease. They’re spreading immunity. It’s okay for kids to go back to school.

The COVID-19 RT-PCR Test: How to Mislead All Humanity. Using a “Test” To Lock Down Society "This misuse of RT-PCR technique is used as a relentless and intentional strategy by some governments, supported by scientific safety councils and by the dominant media, to justify excessive measures such as the violation of a large number of constitutional rights, the destruction of the economy with the bankruptcy of entire active sectors of society, the degradation of living conditions for a large number of ordinary citizens, under the pretext of a pandemic based on a number of positive RT-PCR tests, and not on a real number of patients." …The PCR technique was developed by chemist Kary B. Mullis in 1986. Kary Mullis was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1993…Kary Mullis himself stated that if PCR was a good tool for research, it was a very bad tool in medicine, in the clinic .
….Positive RT-PCR tests, without any mention of Ct 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 .

Smoking gun: Fauci states COVID test has fatal flaw; confession from the “beloved” expert of experts Nov 2020. by Jon Rappoport
Kary Mullis, the creator of the PCR technology that is being widely used to test for so-called ‘cases’ of COVID-19, did not believe the technology was suitable for detecting a meaningful presence of a virus…. “I don’t think you can misuse PCR. [It is] the results; the interpretation of it. If they can find this virus in you at all – and with PCR, if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody.” … If they are amplified less than about 35 times, no-one will test positive. If they are amplified 60 times, everyone will test positive. The flawed thinking is obvious enough.

.... Nevada this month ordered nursing homes to stop using the point-of-care tests after they found more than 20 instances where positive findings were overturned by more precise assays. That was more than half of the positive samples re-tested. Other states are now questioning their accuracy as well.
Federal officials, meanwhile, said states don’t have the authority to bar the tests, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said it would take “appropriate action” if Nevada didn’t cease the ban....
In recent weeks, a new concern has emerged around false positives, which could prompt nursing homes to isolate residents or even dangerously move them to COVID-19 wards when they’re not infected.
“Then they go and get COVID,” said Jeff Engel, senior adviser at the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, or CSTE. “We think there’s a lot more work that needs to be done on accuracy” of point-of-care tests.
CSTE has heard about false positives in almost every state, though Nevada is the only state known to have recommended halting the tests, Dr. Engel said.
Manufacturers of the screenings, government officials and an independent expert, say that false positives occur with all tests and that the concerns are based on a small sample.
Of 3,725 antigen tests performed at Nevada nursing homes, 39 positive antigen test samples were also sent for PCR testing. According to the Nevada directive this month, 16 of those were true positives and 23 were false positives. [KD: that's an almost 60% false positive rate but based on PCR tests that may also include false positives! It may be time to return to medical doctor diagnosis.]
[KD: All PCR test labs have a conflict of interest (just like our news media being funded by big Pharma trying to sell us potentially harmful & ineffective drugs & vaccines ) in that the testing labs continue to get funding if they continue to find positive (albeit mostly false) SARS-Cov-2 test results that the press wrongly calls "cases", even though the virus itself has already ripped through and infected most of the population that could be infected. This Kansas lab is not the only PCR testing lab setting too-high # test cycles.]
“Michael Mina, an assistant professor of epidemiology at both Harvard Medical School and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health told Harvard Magazine that reporting someone positive on a test with a high cycle threshold is like finding a hair in a room, testing it for DNA, and then saying the person who shed that hair is currently in the room.
“That’s a false positive, but that’s what we’re doing,” he said.”
Does anyone know if doctors have proposed acceptable alternatives such as saliva tests or swab tests at the back of the mouth away from the cribiform plate?
Covid Test Nasal Swab Punctured Woman’s Brain Lining And Caused Brain Fluid To Leak From Her Nose October 2, 2020
I will also add that Patients with Alzheimer's also have this fluid leaking from there nasal cavity. “A fractured cribriform plate can result in olfactory dysfunction, septal hematoma, cerebrospinal fluid rhinorrhoea (CSF rhinorrhoea), and possibly infection which can lead to meningitis. CSF rhinorrhoea (clear fluid leaking from the nose) is very serious and considered a medical emergency. Aging can cause the openings in the cribriform plate to close, pinching olfactory nerve fibers. A reduction in olfactory receptors, loss of blood flow, and thick nasal mucus can also cause an impaired sense of smell.
PCR tests are highly prone to false positives ( with a 45- 80% rate of false positives ). Clearly, this swabbing method is both unnecessary, and extremely dangerous.

... in Massachusetts and New York, more than 50% of infections identified by PCR-based surveillance had PCR cycle threshold values in the mid-to-upper 30s, indicating low viral RNA counts. Although such low counts could imply either an early- or a late-stage infection, the long duration of the RNA-positive tail suggests that most infected people are being identified after the infectious period has passed. Crucially for the economy, it also means that thousands of people are being sent to 10-day quarantines after positive RNA tests despite having already passed the transmissible stage of infection.
