ABOVE: THE DESIGNERS OWN WORDS CONCERNING THE USE OF THE PCR TEST
Remarks: PCR tests are not designed to be used as a diagnostic tool as they cannot distinguish between inactive viruses and “live” or reproductive ones. So, what does the PCR test actually tell us? PCR Tests Cannot Detect Infection. Many consider the mass PCR testing programmes a Massive Waste of Resources. A Reasonable Question to be asked: Is the PCR testing being used to Artificially Created Justifications for Totalitarian Controls via health officials, via imposing draconian Lockdowns Measures. POWER MADNESS. With any attempt to question the logic of lockdowns being aggressively attacked by the establishment and the Sympathetic
Media; resistance is projected even to the topic Lockdown Dangers (i.e. is the cure worse in Human Costs than the COVID-19 Virus itself); the flow on effects and costs of these draconian Lockdowns are yet to be realised but be sure they will be. And the question will be who’s paying the most for all this draconian madness from the Establishment, and why are the same establishment unwilling to accept new science which clearly points to evidences these kind of actions are a serious mistake. The establishment is so obsessed with the POWER KICK they have ignored the call by 15,000 Doctors and Scientists Call for End to Lockdowns; and the most serious question concerning all this is WHY?

MERCOLA HEADLINES: Why COVID-19 Testing Is a Tragic Waste
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
Amplification over 35 cycles is considered unreliable and scientifically unjustified, yet many labs use 45 cycles. This amplifies any tiny sequence of viral DNA that might be present to
the point that the test reads “positive” even if the viral load is extremely low or the virus is inactive
From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the clarion call has been to test, test and test some more. However, right from the start, serious questions arose about the tests being used to diagnose this infection, and questions have only multiplied since then.
Positive reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests have been used as the justification for keeping large portions of the world locked down for the better part of 2020.
This, despite the fact that PCR tests have proven remarkably unreliable with high false result rates, and aren’t designed to be used as a diagnostic tool in the first place as they cannot distinguish between inactive viruses and “live” or reproductive ones.
Dr. Mike Yeadon, former vice president and scientific director of Pfizer, has even gone on record statingfn01 SEE URL: The Huntingtonian October 6, 2020 that false positive results from unreliable PCR tests are being used to “manufacture a ‘second wave’ based on ‘new cases,'” when in fact a second wave is highly unlikely.
Before his death, the inventor of the PCR test, Kary Mullis, repeatedly yet unsuccessfully stressed that this test should not be used as a diagnostic tool for the simple reason that it’s incapable of diagnosing disease. A positive test does not actually mean that an active infection is present. As noted in a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and prevention publication on coronavirus and PCR testing dated July 13 2020:fn02 SEE URL: CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel July 13, 2020 (PDF).
■ Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms.
■ The performance of this test has not been established for monitoring treatment of 2019-nCoV infection.
■ This test cannot rule out diseases caused by other bacterial or viral pathogens.
So, what does the PCR test actually tell us?4cmFN01 Refer Coronavirus Fraud Scandal — The Biggest Fight Has Just Begun SEE URL: … Continue reading
The PCR swab collects RNA from your nasal cavity. This RNA is then reverse transcribed into DNA. However, the genetic snippets are so small they must be amplified in order to become discernible. Each round of amplification is called a cycle.
Amplification over 35 cycles is considered unreliable and scientifically unjustified, yet Drosten tests and tests recommended by the World Health Organization are set to 45 cycles.
What this does is amplify any, even insignificant sequences of viral DNA that might be present to the point that the test reads “positive,” even if the viral load is extremely low or the virus is inactive. As a result of these excessive cycle thresholds, you end up with a far higher number of positive tests than you would otherwise.
We’ve also had problems with faulty and contaminated tests. As soon as the genetic sequence for SARS-CoV-2 became available in January 2020, German researchers quickly developed a PCR test for the virus.
The Verge also reportedfn04 SEE URL: The Verge, March 17, 2020, Current Gold Standards that this flawed CDC test in turn became the basis for the WHO’s test, which the CDC ended up refusing to use.
PCR Tests Cannot Detect Infection
Perhaps most importantly of all, the PCR tests cannot distinguish between inactive viruses and “live” or reproductive ones. What that means is that PCR tests cannot detect infection. Period. It cannot tell you whether you’re currently ill, whether you’ll develop symptoms in the near future, or whether you’re contagious.
The tests may pick up dead debris or inactive viral particles that pose no risk whatsoever to the patient and others. What’s more, the test can pick up the presence of other coronaviruses, so a positive result may simply indicate that you’ve recuperated from a common cold in the past.
An “infection” is when a virus penetrates into a cell and replicates. As the virus multiplies, symptoms set in. A person is only infectious if the virus is actually replicating. As long as the virus is inactive and not replicating, it’s completely harmless both to the host and others.
Chances are, if you have no symptoms, a positive test simply means it has detected inactive viral DNA in your body. This would also mean that you are not contagious and pose no risk to anyone.
For all of these reasons, a number of highly respected scientists around the world are now saying that what we have is not a COVID-19 pandemic but a PCR test pandemic. In his September 20, 2020, articlefn05 SEE URL: Lockdownskeptics September 20, 2020 “Lies, Damned Lies and Health Statistics — The Deadly Danger of False Positives,” Yeadon explains why basing our pandemic response on positive PCR tests is so problematic.
In short, it appears millions of people are simply being found to carry inactive viral DNA that pose no risk to anyone, yet these test results are being used by the global technocracy to implement a brand new economic and social system based on draconian surveillance and totalitarian controls.
Artificially Created Justifications for Totalitarian Controls
Again, medical experts agree any cycle threshold over 35 cycles makes the test too sensitive, as at that point it starts picking up harmless inactive DNA fragments. Mina believes a more reasonable cutoff would be 30 or less.
Changing the cycle threshold from 40 cycles to 35 cycles eliminated about 43% of the positive results. Limiting it to 30 cycles eliminated a whopping 63%
According to The New York Times,fn09 SEE URL: The New York Times August 29, 2020 the CDC’s own calculations show it’s extremely unlikely to detect live viruses in samples that have gone through more than 33 cycles, and researchfn10 SEE URL: Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases April 27, 2020; 39(6): 1059-1061 published in April 2020 concluded patients with positive PCR tests that had a cycle threshold above 33 were not contagious and could safely be discharged from the hospital or home isolation.
Importantly, when officials at the New York state laboratory, the Wadsworth Center, reanalyzed testing data at The Times’ request, they found that changing the threshold from 40 cycles to 35 cycles eliminated about 43% of the positive results. Limiting it to 30 cycles eliminated a whopping 63%.fn11 SEE URL: The Vaccine Reaction September 29, 2020
Massive Waste of Resources
As noted by Dr. Tom Jefferson and professor Carl Henegan in an October 31, 2020, article in the Daily Mail,fn16 SEE URL: Daily Mail October 31, 2020 mass PCR testing has been a massive waste or resources, as it doesn’t provide us with the information we actually need to know — who’s infectious, how far is the virus spreading and how fast does it spread?
Instead, it has led to economic devastation from business shutdowns and isolating noninfectious people in their homes for weeks and months on end. Jefferson and Henegan claim they shared their pandemic response plan with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over a month ago, and just presented it to him again. “We urge him to pay attention and embrace it,” they write, adding:
These four areas are:
① Addressing the problems in the government’s mass testing program
② Addressing “the blight of confused and contradictory statistics”
③ Protect and isolate the vulnerable — primarily the elderly, but also hospitalized patients in general and staff — while allowing the rest to maintain “some semblance of normal life”
④ Inform the public about the true and quantifiable costs of lockdown that “kill people just as surely as COVID-19”
“If we do these things, there is real hope that we can learn to live with the virus. That, after all, was supposed to be the plan,” Jefferson and Henegan note. With regard to testing, the pair call “for a national program of testing quality control to ensure that results are accurate, precise and consistent.”
Importantly, we must not rely on positive/negative readings alone. The results must be assessed in relation to other factors, such as the age of the subject and whether they are symptomatic, to determine who actually poses an infectious risk. You can review the full details of their proposed plan at the end of their Daily Mail article.fn17 SEE URL: Daily Mail October 31, 2020
Lockdown Dangers Have Been Kept Out of Public Discussion
Jefferson and Henegan aren’t the only ones highlighting the fact that the global lockdown strategy is causing more harm and destruction than the virus itself. In a June 16, 2020 article in The Federalist, James Lucas, a New York City attorney, wrote:fn18 SEE URL: The Federalist June 16, 2020
The Hidden Costs of Lockdowns
■ Increased chronic disease rates due to unemployment, poverty and putting non-COVID medical care on hold
— Researchfn23 SEE URL: Health Services Research 2007 Apr; 42(2): 644–662 by the Veterans Administration has shown delaying cancer treatment for just one month led to a 20% increase in mortality. Another studyfn24 SEE URL: The ASCO Post April 14, 2016 found each one-month delay in breast cancer diagnosis increased mortality by 10%
■ Increased rates of mental health problems due to unemployment and isolation
■ Increased mortality rates from suicide
— In one study,fn25 SEE URL: Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health 2003; 57: 594-600 being unemployed was associated with a twofold to threefold higher relative risk of suicide. A more recent studyfn26 SEE URL: Well Being Trust Projected Deaths of Despair During COVID-19 estimates “deaths of despair” linked to lockdowns may be around 75,000 in the U.S.
■ Reduced collective life span
— Extended unemployment is also associated with shorter, unhealthier lives. Hannes Schwandt, a health economics researcher at Northwestern University, estimates an extended economic shutdown could shorten the lifespan of 6.4 million Americans entering the job market by an average of about two years.fn27 SEE URL: Reuters April 3, 2020
Lack of education is also associated with significantly shorter life spans and poorer health. High school drop-outs die on average nine years sooner than college graduates,fn29 SEE URL: Center on Society and Health February 13, 2015 and school closings disproportionally affect poorer students.
Who Pays the Most?
As noted by Lucas, in addition to calculating the overall costs on society, modelers must also determine “on whom those costs fall,” because the costs are not borne equally by all. The consequences of the lockdowns disproportionally affect those who are already the most vulnerable — financially and health wise — such as those living near the poverty line, the chronically ill, people with mental illness and minorities in general.
A Pandemic of Fearmongering
Nine facts that can be backed up with data “paints a very different picture from the fear and dread being relentlessly drummed into the brains of unsuspecting citizens,” the article states.
In addition to the fact that PCR testing is practically useless, for all the reasons already mentioned, these data-backed facts include:
① A positive test is NOT a “case”
— As explained by Dr. Lee Merritt in her August 2020 Doctors for Disaster Preparednessfn33 SEE URL: Doctors for Disaster Preparedness lecture, featured in “How Medical Technocracy Made the Plandemic Possible,” media and public health officials appear to have purposefully conflated “cases” or positive tests with the actual illness.
Medically speaking, a “case” refers to a sick person. It never ever referred to someone who had no symptoms of illness. Now all of a sudden, this well-established medical term, “case,” has been completely and arbitrarily redefined to mean someone who tested positive for the presence of viral RNA. As noted by Merritt, “That is not epidemiology. That’s fraud.”
② According to the CDCfn34 SEE URL: CDC.gov Pandemic Planning Scenarios Updated September 10, 2020and other research data,fn35 SEE URL: Annals of Internal Medicine September 2, 2020 DOI: 10.7326/M20-5352 the COVID-19 survival rate is over 99%, and the vast majority of deaths occur in those over 70, which is close to normal life expectancy.
③ CDC analysis reveals 85% of patients testing positive for COVID-19 wore face masks “often” or “always” in the two weeks preceding their positive test. As noted in the Ron Paul article,fn36 SEE URL: Ron Paul Institute October 28, 2020 “The only rational conclusion from this study is that cloth face masks offer little if any protection from Covid-19 infection.”
④ There are inexpensive, proven successful therapies for COVID-19
— Examples include various regimens involving hydroxychloroquine with zinc and antibiotics, quercetin-based protocols, the MATH+ protocol and nebulized hydrogen peroxide.
⑤ The death rate has not risen despite pandemic deaths
— Datafn37 SEE URL: YouTube, SARS-CoV-2 and the rise of medical technocracy, Lee Merritt, MD, aprox 8 minutes in (Lie No. 1: Death Risk).,fn38 SEE URL: Technical Report June 2020 DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.24350.77125 show the overall all-cause mortality has remained steady during 2020 and doesn’t veer from the norm. In other words, COVID-19 has not killed off more of the population than would have died in any given year anyway.
As noted in the Ron Paul article,fn39 SEE URL: Ron Paul Institute October 28, 2020 “According to the CDC as of early May 2020 the total number of deaths in the US was 944,251 from January 1 — April 30th. This is actually slightly lower than the number of deaths during the same period in 2017 when 946,067 total deaths were reported.”
15,000 Doctors and Scientists Call for End to Lockdowns
All in all, there are many reasons to suspect that continued lockdowns, social distancing and mask mandates are completely unnecessary and will not significantly alter the course of this pandemic illness, or the final death count.
And, with regard to universal PCR testing where individuals are tested every two weeks or even more frequently, whether they have symptoms or not, this is clearly a pointless effort that yields useless data. It’s just a tool to spread fear, which in turn allows for the rapid implementation of the totalitarian control mechanisms required to pull off The Great Reset. Fortunately, more and more people are now starting to see through this plot.
About 45,000 scientists and doctors worldwide have already signed the Great Barrington Declaration,fn40 SEE URL: Great Barrington Declaration which calls for the end to all lockdowns and implementation of a herd immunity approach to the pandemic, meaning governments should allow people who are not at significant risk of serious COVID-19 illness to go back to normal life, as the lockdown approach is having a devastating effect on public health — far worse than the virus itself.fn41 SEE URL: Sky News October 7, 2020,fn42 SEE URL: Washington Times October 8, 2020
The declaration points out that current lockdown policies will result in excess mortality in the future, primarily among younger people and the working class. As of November 5, 2020, The Great Barrington Declarationfn44 SEE URL: Great Barrington Declaration had been signed by 11,791 medical and public health scientists, 33,903 medical practitioners and 617,685 “concerned citizens.”fn45 SEE URL: Great Barrington Declaration Signatures
