PCR testing for SARS-COV-2

Conduct autopsies to determine the cause of death
The virus and the disease
SARS-COV-2 is a virus. When this virus enters the body via the nasal passage or the lungs it can provoke a severe respiratory illness. The disease it can cause is called COVID-19.
COVID-19 was first identified by Chinese doctors in Wuhan in December 2019 by examining the lungs of infected patients. They found broken-glass like features in CT-scans. Chinese experts shared data about the virus on a world health databank.
This information was picked up by Professor Christian Drosten in Berlin. He developed a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test that detects the presence of the genetic material of the virus by taking a mucus swab at the back of the throat or deep in the nasal passage.
How the PCR test works
A PCR test multiplies copies of genetic samples of a virus and amplifies them to produce enough material to study.
The sample is put in a machine that doubles the presence of the RNA genetic material from the virus with each cycle. The lower the cycle threshold the more likely the test will detect people who are sick and infectious. The higher the cycle threshold the less likely it is that someone is ill or infectious.
Mary and John both take a PCR test this is what happens to their swab samples.
One part of the virus is present in Mary’s sample. So, the machine produces:
2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, and 1024 parts after 10 cycles.
If 100 parts are present in John’s sample, the machine produces: 200, 400, 800, 1,600, 3,200, 6,400, 12,800, 25,600, 51,200, and 102,400 parts after 10 cycles.
If 100,000 parts or above is the viral load that the PCR machine needs to identify illness and infectiousness, then Mary is defined as healthy and John as having the disease COVID-19.
However, if Mary’s sample is put through 17 cycles on the PCR machine it produces 131,072 parts of the RNA of the virus and she is treated as if she is infectious and diseased with COVID-19. There is no standard for the cycle threshold used by testing companies.
Government admits the test does not identify illness or infectiousness
On 28 Oct 2020 Public Health England confirmed that: “RT-PCR detects presence of viral genetic material in a sample but is not able to distinguish whether infectious virus is present.” This document confirms that the tests are not standardised and have different cycle thresholds.
False data on cases in hospital
If Mary is admitted to hospital for any reason within 14 days of her PCR test, she is defined as a COVID-19 case because the NHS definition stipulates: “For all relevant data items: a confirmed COVID-19 patient is any patient admitted to the trust who has recently (ie in the last 14 days) tested positive for COVID-19 following a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test” (https://www.england.nhs.uk/statistics/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2020/07/Publication-definitions-doc.pdf)
False data on COVID-19 deaths
If Mary dies of any cause within 28 days of her positive PCR test, the government counts her as a COVID-19 death, regardless of the actual cause of death. The government website states that their COVID-19 death figures are: “Number of deaths of people who had had a positive test result for COVID-19 and died within 28 days of the first positive test.” (https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/deaths)
Lockdown is based on grotesquely exaggerated data
We have no idea what the positive tests actually indicate about someone’s health but we all know the consequences.
Mary is healthy but is ordered to self-isolate, she is forbidden to leave her house, and people who were in the café where she sat the day before are told to self-isolate. Some of them also take a PCR test with the same consequences. Mary is recorded as a “COVID-19 case” in the official data, and the Government, its scientists, and the media all claim that COVID-19 cases are rising fast. The government pays private test companies to conduct more and more of these tests, millions every week. The whole of Liverpool is being tested by the army. The country is placed in Lockdown: democracy, freedom, and individual liberty are suspended. Millions of people are driven into poverty and despair.
End the testing epidemic
All of this chaos is based on the PCR test. It is not standardised and it does not detect if someone is ill or infectious.
We must stop the testing of healthy people. Doctors must examine the lungs of suspected COVID-19 patients. The government and NHS must stop all statistical references to COVID-19 cases, where this is based solely on a PCR test.
Autopsies are needed to determine the cause of death and to find cures and treatments for COVID-19
The history of forensic medicine is based on the principle “Mortui vivis docent - the dead teach the living.” Applying this basic scientific principle requires that autopsies must be conducted on representative samples of the daily deaths attributed to COVID-19. Only by examining those classified as deaths “from or with COVID-19” can forensic medicine identify the true cause of death and the actual course of the disease, and this can help to evaluate the effectiveness of their treatment and improve future treatment.
