80 Percent False Positive
I wanted to share some thoughts about the recent insane rise in COVID-19 positive test rates.
First thing first, if you look at the amount of testing being done daily in the US, you are up to 1.5M tests done daily. We are at an amazing rate for testing. This is great news first and foremost.
But this is where the problems also start. As many of you have probably noticed, the main stream media (MSM) has been pushing the positive COVID-19 rates at around 180-200,000 positive cases daily.
They have been stressing this as a catastrophy…as a horrible finding for our country…as all doom and gloom. HOWEVER these tests have been PCR tests, which have some really big problems that I am finding.
After doing research on PCR tests, which I have talked about before, what I am finding is that there is something called amplification or "passes" that are needed to get positive findings on PCR tests. Imagine you have to grow the virus in a petri dish and it has to grow to a certain size before we can see how bad it is. This is a simplistic view but it will work for this conversation.
Now, the research is showing that at 17 "cycles" or 17x amplification, you are getting near 100% accuracy on positive findings. IE if you test at this level, and come back positive it is absolutely positive. However, if you test at 33+ "cycles" or 33x amplification, you are showing 80% FALSE POSITIVE findings. This is huge and important.
Even Dr. Anthony Fauci has admitted that the PCR test is useless and misleading when run at "35 cycles or higher." He made this comment in a July 16, 2020, "This Week in Virology" podcast. His direct quote was
"If you get a cycle threshold of 35 or more … the chances of it being replication-confident are minuscule … You almost never can culture a virus from a 37 threshold cycle … [or] even 36 …"
So why does this matter? Because the FDA and CDC are recommending 40 cycles per test be run.
This means that every test that is being run has a huge 80%+ chance of being a false positive.
This is HUGE!!! Because what we are seeing are FALSE TEST RESULTS.
Let me repeat myself - the positive COVID test rates we are seeing in the United State are FALSE POSITIVE test results.
In August, even the New York Times said this:
"In three sets of testing data that include cycle thresholds, compiled by officials in Massachusetts, New York and Nevada, up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus, a review by The Times found."
Just so we know, doctors are not being told how many test cycles are done on their positive patients. So we don't have the information to know how accurate the test is for each of these patient positives.
So what we have is a TON of people being told they have COVID but simply this is not truth…most of them are negative for COVID-19!!!
If we assume 20% of the positive results are possibly truly positive, then the next question becomes - does this 20% positive or 40,000 per day give us the number of hospitalizations and possibly lead to the number of deaths we are seeing?
Now one last comment. These possibly false positive results are leading to quarantine, lock down orders and a general loss of free society as we know it. And I don't know why this is happening. I can't be the only person who is asking questions about PCR testing and false findings.
This is why I can't answer and would throw it out there for others to comment and ask.
Let's discuss and see where things go. Maybe we can come up with some reasons for why this is happening and work to get this information to the local, state and federal officials who are directing our public health initiatives and lockdowns.
