Corona: creating the illusion of a pandemic through diagnostic tests

Nailed them, with their own words.

In this article, I’ll present quotes from official sources about their own diagnostic test for the coronavirus. I’m talking about fatal flaws in the test.

Because case numbers are based on those tests (or no tests at all), the whole “pandemic effect” has been created out of fake science.

In a moment of truth, a propaganda pro might murmur to a colleague, “You know, we’ve got a great diagnostic test for the virus. The test turns out all sorts of results that say this person is diseased and that person is diseased. Millions of diseased people. But the test doesn’t really measure that. The test is ridiculous, but ridiculous in our favor. It builds the picture of a global pandemic. An excuse to lock down the planet and wreck economies and lives…”

The widespread test for the COVID-19 virus is called the PCR. I have written much about it in past articles.

Now let’s go to published official literature, and see what it reveals. Spoiler alert: the admitted holes and shortcomings of the test are devastating.

From “CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel” [1]:

“Detection of viral RNA may not indicate the presence of infectious virus or that 2019-nCoV is the causative agent for clinical symptoms.”

Translation: A positive test doesn’t guarantee that the COVID virus is causing infection at all. And, ahem, reading between the lines, maybe the COVID virus might not be in the patient’s body at all, either.

From the World Health Organization (WHO): “Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) technical guidance: Laboratory testing for 2019-nCoV in humans” [2]:

“Several assays that detect the 2019-nCoV have been and are currently under development, both in-house and commercially. Some assays may detect only the novel virus [COVID] and some may also detect other strains (e.g. SARS-CoV) that are genetically similar.”

Translation: Some PCR tests register positive for types of coronavirus that have nothing to do with COVID—including plain old coronas that cause nothing more than a cold.

The WHO document adds this little piece: “Protocol use limitations: Optional clinical specimens for testing has [have] not yet been validated.”

Translation: We’re not sure which tissue samples to take from the patient, in order for the test to have any validity.


“…The SARS-CoV-2RNA [COVID virus] is generally detectable in respiratory specimens during the acute phase of infection. Positive results are indicative of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA; clinical correlation with patient history and other diagnostic information is necessary to determine patient infection status…THE AGENT DETECTED MAY NOT BE THE DEFINITE CAUSE OF DISEASE (CAPS are mine). Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”

Translation: On the one hand, we claim the test can “generally” detect the presence of the COVID virus in a patient. But we admit that “the agent detected” on the test, by which we mean COVID, “may not be the definite cause of disease.” We also admit that, unless the patient has an acute infection, we can’t find COVID. Therefore, the idea of “asymptomatic patients” confirmed by the test is nonsense. And even though a positive test for COVID may not indicate the actual cause of disease, all positive tests must be reported—and they will be counted as “COVID cases.” Regardless.

From a manufacturer of PCR test kit elements, Creative Diagnostics, “SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus Multiplex RT-qPCR Kit” [4]:

“Regulatory status: For research use only, not for use in diagnostic procedures.”

Translation: Don’t use the test result alone to diagnose infection or disease. Oops.

“non-specific interference of Influenza A Virus (H1N1), Influenza B Virus (Yamagata), Respiratory Syncytial Virus (type B), Respiratory Adenovirus (type 3, type 7), Parainfluenza Virus (type 2), Mycoplasma Pneumoniae, Chlamydia Pneumoniae, etc.”

Translation: Although this company states the test can detect COVID, it also states the test can read FALSELY positive if the patient has one of a number of other irrelevant viruses in his body. What is the test proving, then? Who knows? Flip a coin.

“Application Qualitative”

Translation: This clearly means the test is not suited to detect how much virus is in the patient’s body. I’ll cover how important this admission is in a minute.

“The detection result of this product is only for clinical reference, and it should not be used as the only evidence for clinical diagnosis and treatment. The clinical management of patients should be considered in combination with their symptoms/signs, history, other laboratory tests and treatment responses. The detection results should not be directly used as the evidence for clinical diagnosis, and are only for the reference of clinicians.”

Translation: Don’t use the test as the exclusive basis for diagnosing a person with COVID. And yet, this is exactly what health authorities are doing all over the world. All positive tests must be reported to government agencies, and they are counted as COVID cases.”

Those quotes, from official government and testing sources, torpedo the whole “scientific” basis of the test.

And now, I’ll add another, lethal blow: the test has never been validated properly as an instrument to detect disease. Even assuming it can detect the presence of the COVID virus in a patient, it doesn’t show HOW MUCH virus is in the body. And that is key, because in order to even begin talking about actual illness in the real world, not in a lab, the patient would need to have millions and millions of the virus actively replicating in his body.

Proponents of the test assert that it CAN measure how much virus is in the body. To which I reply: prove it.

Prove it in a way it should have been proven decades ago—but never was.

Take five hundred people and remove tissue samples from them. The people who take the samples do NOT do the test. The testers will never know who the patients are and what condition they’re in.

The testers run their PCR on the tissue samples. In each case, they say which virus they found and HOW MUCH of it they found.

“All right, in patients 24, 46, 65, 76, 87, and 93 we found a great deal of virus.”

Now we un-blind those patients. They should all be sick, because they have so much virus replicating in their bodies. Are they sick? Are they running marathons? Let’s find out.

This OBVIOUS vetting of the test has never been done. That is an enormous scandal. Where are the controlled test results in 500 patients, a thousand patients? Nowhere.

The test is an unproven fraud.

And, therefore, the COVID pandemic, which is supposed to be based on that test, is also a fraud.

“But…but…what about all the sick and dying people…why are they sick?”

I’ve written thousands of words answering that question, in past articles. A NUMBER of conditions—none involving COVID, and most involving old traditional diseases—are making people sick.

One response to “Corona: creating the illusion of a pandemic through diagnostic tests”

  1. There are other problems with to so-called testing. The Diamond Princess model is skewed as is the US CDC:

    First, by the fact that none of the compliment were under 25 years of age and that age group is virtually not at risk at all from this virus, and that age group makes up 14% of the US population.

    Secondly, the testing done on all the passengers was totally unreliable as there were no antibody tests to determine those who may have been infected but the virus had disappeared by the time of the test.

    Thirdly, in comparison to other liners with similar compliments infected by the virus, and similar air conditioning facilities, proportionally, far less have died.

    Fourthly, the US CDC has been in bed with big pharma for decades now and probably since it’s inception in 1946. In its stats which deals with flu infections, hospitalizations and deaths, it characterizes such flus as “influenza related”. Other advanced nations do not make such neat characterizations to ensure high numbers to foster the hundreds of billions going to big pharma for yearly flu vaccinations.

    Fifthly, once there are huge monetary and political issues involved the characterization of cause of death becomes increasingly problematic. Presently, in places like New York State if an elderly person with serious pre-morbidity issues like ischemic heart disease, together with hypertension and is at deaths’ door, and then gets the virus and then pneumonia and thereafter dies, there no doubt in this hour be a tendency to characterize the death of COVID 19, but if the same person were to get pneumonia first and then the virus, the cause of death would most certainly be named COVID 19.

    There are trillions of dollars at stake if big pharma, epidemiologists, the CDC, can induce the government to protect the public from this so-called “deadly virus” with the purchase from some big pharma corporation, having rights to some magic-bullet vaccination which has just coincidentally been created in some Israeli lab. It is no coincidence that big pharma produces just about all of our pharmaceutical drugs in China which is a huge stakeholder in the game.

    What else is to explain China’s totally contrived fake-news hype at the time of the outbreak without even doing comparisons at that time to coronavirus rates in the previous years? Then we have the “show case” of the Diamond Princess, perfectly timed for all of the hype.

    To be fair, people should know that few people would be suspicious in a situation like this, if the US CDC and people like Dr. Anthony Fauci were clean of such connections, and Israel not magically have the cure-all vaccination already developed at this precise time, especially when the stakes are so high and our nations are literally and wrongly being “held up” at gun point by our governments.

    It is also wrong for so many experts to say or to infer it is necessary to wait until we have an accurate denominator top determine a mortality risk percentage in order to make proper decisions. They are only adding to the problem by adding more unnecessary delay in removing the restrictions to the general population. It is irrelevant in a situation like this to know accurately the actual mortality risk to the general population when the risk sector has been so carefully and highly defined. The decision to protect that group from death has already been made by in many jurisdictions by restricting visitors to nursing homes and other institutions, while isolating at risk people in such care, plus waring all others on the outside of their risk and the need for them to take reasonable precautions. What is at issue is the isolation of over 98% of the population which is not at risk of death or serious harm from the virus, and in that respect because we do know who are in fact at risk in this small percentage, it is not only irrelevant to wait until antibody tests come in for an accurate denominator, but it becomes a matter of common sense and gross negligence for the government to continue to shut everything down.
