  1. The test is not only worthless, from the perspective of truth; it’s dangerous. Some could manufacture in a “bug” that eventually goes up someone’s nose.
    Not only are security[s] worldwide getting nose jobs/”Pull your mask above your nose sir/mam”; but now – the virus is increasing w/the tests, in more ways than one dares to count?

  2. Just had a random thought….What if ‘they’ are considering giving us an OS upgrade to unlock some of that ‘junk’ DNA that no-one knows what to do with.
    How would one go about that then? Some mRNA tinkering perhaps?
    As I say, just a random thought…….

  3. The “test” is not flawed , it’s worthless. It detects a sequence of RNA about 300 base pairs long alleged and i underline alleged to be a tiny fragment of an alleged Virus which is 30,000 base pairs. That sequence of RNA being detected
    could be from anything..a bacterial or fungal or cancer cell or just plain cellular debris. To prove that this sequence of RNA is specific to a virus you have to isolate and purify said virus and describe its entire genome. This is never done. We have a spike in testing and nothing more.

  4. The FDA web site has a large section on covid. Interesting information there that explains how they use the 3 different tests; PCR, Antigen and Antibody. You can read how they use manipulation of results and use assumptions to arrive with the numbers they want. https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/coronavirus-covid-19-and-medical-devices/antibody-serology-testing-covid-19-information-patients-and-consumers.

    The CDC does the same manipulations in how they come up with the positivity rate for the country. They can use different algorithms when ever they choose.

    Optimizing Testing Outcomes
    Test performance
    The utility of tests depends on the sensitivity and specificity of the assays; these performance characteristics are determined by using a defined set of negative and positive samples. . Positive and negative predictive values are determined by the percentage of truly antibody positive individuals in the tested population (prevalence, pre-test probability) and the sensitivity….

    Testing strategies
    In the current pandemic, maximizing specificity and thus positive predictive value in a serologic algorithm is preferred in most instances,
    Another strategy is to focus testing on persons with a high pre-test probability of having SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, such as persons with a history of COVID-19-like illness.

    Three strategies can be used to improve positive predictive value: Choosing a test with a very high specificity, perhaps 99.5% or greater, will yield a high positive. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/lab/resources/antibody-tests-guidelines.html

  5. The parallels with hiv (for which Mullis created the pcr test) are apparent i.e. no viral isolate; use of a surrogate test; no gold standard test; excessive amplification cycle used to create “positives”; false positives resulting from other conditions; Fauci front and center in both cases; huge fear campaigns; the idea of asymptomatic transmission; the aggressive censorship of dissent within medical/scientific field; the imagery of the spiked viral particle plastered over everything… I was reminded of hiv pretty much from the start..
