Shameless Manipulation of Positive PCR Tests - false positives
"Hospitalization rates1 associated with COVID have dropped from a high of 132,500 Americans on January 6, 2021, to 71,500 on February 12, 2021. The U.S. had 920,000 staffed hospital beds in 2019,2 of which 14.4% harbored a COVID case in January 2021, and 7.8% do so far in February 2021.
This tremendous drop was predicted. Every hospitalized patient is tested for COVID, often repeatedly, using PCR tests with high false positive rates. False positives are due in considerable part to exorbitant cycle thresholds. This refers to the maximum number of doublings that are allowed during the test.
The problem caused by excessive cycle thresholds was well described in an August 2020 New York Times article,3 but has otherwise been ignored by the mass media. Dr. Sin Hang Lee, director of Connecticut-based Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory, challenged4 the FDA's reliance on exorbitant cycle thresholds in its acceptance of efficacy claims for Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine in early December 2020. He and FDA remain engaged in this debate.
The WHO instructed PCR test users and manufacturers on December 14, 2020,5 and again on January 20, 2021,6 that PCR cycle thresholds needed to come down. The December 14 guidance stated WHO's concern regarding "an elevated risk for false SARS-CoV-2 results" and pointed to "background noise which may lead to a specimen with a high cycle threshold value result being [incorrectly] interpreted as a positive result."
The first instruction7 has been superseded by the second, which additionally advises on clinical use of the test:8 If the "test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken and retested ..."
While this implies that the test should only be performed in those with symptoms, and its results should be interpreted with the clinical context in mind, most PCR tests in the U.S. are used very differently: to screen asymptomatics at work, at colleges and universities and to permit border crossings."
The government and CDC totally manipulate the numbers of cases. If they want to lock things down, they trend the numbers up. If they want to appear that their measures are working, they trend them down.
Also what they don't tell people, is that in the first wave they ran out of the ability to test people. So recent "records" are totally BS
