Straight from the horse’s mouth—both sides
—The CDC (US Centers for Disease Control) admits the coronavirus test is flawed. That’s the overview and the takeaway—
As my readers know, I’ve described why the widespread diagnostic test for the coronavirus is insufficient, misleading, useless, and deceptive.
That test, used all over the world where it is available, is called the PCR.
It DIAGNOSES patients. “Yes, you have the virus.” “No you don’t.”
A very alert reader sent me a link to a US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) document about the test. The CDC establishes the guidelines for how the test should be done, and what the results mean.
Here is a CDC paragraph about results. I suggest you read it several times.
“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”
I’m going to blow past the blatant contradiction in that CDC paragraph and cut to the chase.
The key line in that paragraph is: “The agent detected [the coronavirus] may not be the definite cause of disease.”
CDC: Yeah, you see, folks, ahem, the test could say the coronavirus is there in somebody’s body, but the virus may not be causing disease… [The virus is common and can be in many people without causing disease! The test can’t tell if a person is sick. It only tests for the virus – and that in itself is unreliable.]
On one level, the CDC is admitting the test could turn up false positives: the test could SAY a patient has the coronavirus, but he really doesn’t. [Or it can say that someone has the coronavirus but is not, and will not, be sick].
This isn’t a footnote stuck at the bottom of a report. It’s right there near the top of the section about the meaning of the test.
On a deeper level, the CDC is saying straight out, IF THE TEST SHOWS A CORONAVIRUS IS PRESENT, THAT DOESN’T MEAN IT’S CAUSING DISEASE.
Well, yes, I’ve pointed out that the test has an inherent problem. At best, it might show that a virus is present in the patient’s body. But the test is incapable of determining HOW MUCH virus is ACTIVELY REPLICATING in the patient’s body.
And why is that important? Because, to even begin to say a virus is causing actual illness in a human, there would have to be millions and millions of the virus replicating in his body—and the PCR test has never been proven, in the real world, to be able to make such a judgment call accurately.
But, if you read that CDC quote again, you’ll see the CDC is ordering labs to report a positive test result to public health agencies—where it will be counted as a “coronavirus case” come hell or high water.
Thank you, CDC. So very, very much. The next ship for Uranus leaves tomorrow. Pile on board and make the trip. You can run tests there to your heart’s content.
