The PCR COVID Test Is Fraught With Error, Abuse and Inaccuracy

What’s Wrong with PCR COVID-19 Testing? LOTS!!!

1. Do You Know what the PCR test is?

  • The PCR test is the main test being used to detect the SARS-COV2 virus, & diagnose COVID-19.
  • PCR stands for a polymerase chain reaction.
  • In the case of the SARS-COV2 virus, the PCR test serves to amplify fragments of viral DNA for easier detection.
  • The steps are:
    • Swab people at testing sites for the SARS-COV2 virus
    • Test the samples in the labs on PCR machines
    • Implement a PCR protocol to amplify a piece of the SARS-COV2 viral genetic material
    • Look for a fluorescent ‘signal’ that the machines can read as a positive signal for the detection of SARS-COV2 viral genetic material
    • Run the samples through “cycles”—each cycle grows the positive ‘signal’
    • Identify a positive result when enough of a ‘signal’ is detected after cycling.
    • The number of cycles used is critical—using too high of a number of cycles may lead to false-positive test results.

2. Do You Know that a positive test result doesn’t mean you are infected?

  • PCR tests have a high false positive rate when used with a high cycle threshold.
  • PCR testing cannot distinguish between the identification of genetic material from a “live” SARS-COV2 virus vs. the genetic material from a dead (noninfectious) virus
  • A positive SARS-COV2 PCR test result cannot be used to measure the ‘viral load’ in the body.
  • A positive SARS-COV2 PCR test also cannot be used to explain whether a sufficient “viral load” is present for the virus to be transmitted from one person to the other.
  • PCR testing cannot be used to definitively identify whether the SARS-COV2 virus, or other viruses and bacteria, is the cause for a person’s symptoms.
