You can’t make this up.
“After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.
In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. 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. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.”
This means the PCR test, which so many people have been required to take, cannot distinguish between COVID and the flu. The CDC just admitted that. That sure explains why the flu suddenly disappeared when COVID hit. It also raises serious red flags regarding who is providing misinformation. All of us have been inundated with the daily drumbeat of new COVID cases reminding us of why this is so very serious. Now we learn that the CDC does not trust the PCR test, which means NONE of the data being reported on the MSM and by the CDC can be trusted. The truth is we don’t even know how many people actually had COVID and we certainly don’t know how many of the 800,000 COVID deaths were actually caused by COVID. We already know that many of them were cases where people died “with COVID” but not necessarily “from COVID.” Now we learn that we aren’t even sure they had COVID at all. I suspect even the MSM is going to be shocked when they realize the extent of deliberately misleading information used to justify extreme measures that clearly did not work. They MSM has proven itself to be incredibly naïve, but this is insane.
So, while COVID is all too real, the reporting by the CDC has been very unreal.
It gets worse. Yesterday, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said testing at the end of quarantine is no longer needed because PCR test can stay positive for up to 12 weeks.
The newly updated CDC guidelines don’t require testing at the end of isolation because PCR tests can stay positive for up to 12 weeks, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.
So, weeks after you had COVID, and recovered, and represent no risk to anyone, you can still test positive on a PCR test. Isn’t that special!
The alternative to a PCR test is an antigen test. Well, it turns out the PCR test is significantly more reliable than the antigen test. Wow!
“RT-PCR tests are the most reliable of diagnostic tests available, with at least 94% peak accuracy. Unlike antigen tests, PCR tests can detect the coronavirus even at low viral loads and at nearly any stage of the infection.”
It is now official. Those people who have been arrogantly lecturing us and micro-managing our lives for nearly two years, by following the science, were themselves ignoring the science. Incredibly we are at a point where we just may know less about COVID today than we did in March of 2020. The only thing we know for certain is that the people who demanded we trust them have proven themselves unworthy of that trust.
Combine that with wholesale testing of people who don’t have symptoms, with a test known to be faulty, and firing them if they don’t comply and this is a perfect storm. Just when you thought things could not possibly get worse, they got worse.
