Here’s the problem, we are testing people for any strain of a Coronavirus. Not specifically for COVID-19. There are no reliable tests for a specific COVID-19 virus.
The common cold is not a specific virus, but many of them are a coronavirus. That means many counted as the SARS2 virus are actually the common cold or flu.
No, no and no.
Where the hell are you digging up crap like this?
The corona tests are Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests.
They detect the RNA of a virus (so specifically “which” virus; i.e. they’re searching for active SARS-CoV-2 hallmarks).
Now, nobody’s saying the tests are 100% accurate. I believe the accuracy is about 85%. Sometimes the RNA just doesn’t get detected.
But they do not show non SARS-CoV-2 RNA (they could, but it’s not the trigger that’s being looked for, so all non SARS-CoV-2 results are discarded).
And the flu (influenza) is not accidentally counted in the bloody results.
Seriously man, you Americans come away with the most chronic paranoid stupidity.
I checked your link.
It’s a report from March by one Julian Rose, supposedly a text from some scientist who wishes to remain anonymous.
Here’s the scientific rebuttal:
Your link, your thread title and your conclusions are misleading and wrong.
