By R. Mitchell –
You can’t make this stuff up.
After more than a year of pummeling the American public with “positive rates”, “positive cases”, and “upticks in COVID cases”, the CDC admitted last week that the PCR test being used to detect these ‘positives’ isn’t very good at telling the difference between the seasonal flu and COVID-19 or other SARS varients.
In a “lab alert” published Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention informed healthcare labs that they should abandon the Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel and find something else that can actually tell the difference between influenza and COVID-19 (emphasis added):
CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season.
Analysts, physicians, and epidemiologists attempted to alert the public that the deaths attributed to COVID-19 were statistically flawed.
Some blamed the monetary incentive thinking that hospitals and labs might get a little something extra if COVID was detected, so why bother questioning a test that thinks everything is COVID?
Others felt the media and its hunger for crisis was magnifying the numbers.
But, ultimately, it was the test itself that artificially inflated Coronavirus numbers and that led to lockdowns, mask mandates, travel restrictions and an economic downturn that many are still struggling to survive.
The test was originally approved in February of 2020, just after Biden’s inauguration.
It is unknown why the CDC waited more than a year to determine that the real-time PCR test was creating so many false positives for COVID.
