COVID-19 testing is often too sensitive, picking up other strains of coronavirus instead of this year’s pandemic strain.

This leads to false positives and a misinterpretation of ‘cases’, many of which do not require hospitalisation.

Informative tweets follow:

The cycle threshold for the UK swab tests at is 40 or 45, so that is likely to be picking up all sorts of ‘old’ virus:

No one is saying there hasn’t been an uptick in real cases or hospitalisations, but health advisers should be looking at this testing issue more closely, not only from a diagnostic aspect but also one of public trust:

This is an interesting Q&A:

Indeed. Cui bono?

A number of Americans think that the continuing US lockdowns will last until the election to prevent President Trump from winning re-election.

That explains nothing about what is happening in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Do we have to be collateral damage for the US presidential election?

No.

This is part of the Great Reset, so that Western society can be got rid of and replaced with socialism. I do not think that will happen, but it could, given everyone’s compliance this year.

Anyway, here is a good graphic (despite the typo) and a video about testing that you can share. Be sure to click on Justin Hart’s graphic to see it in full. It says that Ohio’s governor tested positive and negative on the same day:

This leads to all sorts of confusion amongst the public. As far as I know, no one has been able to isolate the RNA from COVID-19, making the tests questionable:

The answer to testing could be to drop the PCR swab test currently in use and switch to a saliva-based test which might be more accurate.

The tweets below are from physicians in Boston and Cambridge, Massachusetts:

More to come on COVID-19 testing tomorrow.
