‘The CDC (US Centers for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed. That’s the overview and the takeaway—
As my readers know, I’ve described why the widespread diagnostic test for the coronavirus is insufficient, misleading, useless, and deceptive.
That test, used all over the world where it is available, is called the PCR.
It DIAGNOSES patients. “Yes, you have the virus.” “No you don’t.”
A very alert reader sent me a link to a US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) document about the test. The CDC establishes the guidelines for how the test should be done, and what the results mean.
Here is a CDC paragraph about results. I suggest you read it several times.
“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”
I’m going to blow past the blatant contradiction in that CDC paragraph and cut to the chase.
The key line in that paragraph is: “The agent detected [the coronavirus] may not be the definite cause of disease.”
CDC: Yeah, you see, folks, ahem, the test could say the coronavirus is there in somebody’s body, but the virus may not be causing disease…
On one level, the CDC is admitting the test could turn up false positives: the test could SAY a patient has the coronavirus, but he really doesn’t.
This isn’t a footnote stuck at the bottom of a report. It’s right there near the top of the section about the meaning of the test.’
