The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test that is currently being used is known not to work. This test, at best, tells analysts that you have some viral DNA in your cells. Which most of us do, most of the time. PCR will only tell the analyst that the viral sequence is related to a specific type of virus – such as the huge family of coronaviruses. But that’s all. PCR doesn’t isolate for a specific virus, such as COVID-19.
It cannot tell you whether or not you have COVID-19, specifically.
This is why you’re hearing that most people with COVID-19 are showing nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. That’s because most coronavirus strains are nothing more than cold/flu like symptoms. The few actual novel coronavirus cases do have some worse respiratory responses, but still have a very promising recovery rate, especially for those without prior issues.
So even if you don’t have COVID-19, the PCR test might pick up another coronavirus in your system and give a false positive reading for COVID-19.
And that’s not even getting into the other issue – viral load.
PCR is useless at telling you how much virus you may have. And that’s the only question that really matters when it comes to diagnosing illness. Everyone will have a virus kicking round in their system at any time, and most will not cause illness because their quantities are too small. For a virus to sicken you, you need a lot of it, a massive amount of it. But PCR does not test viral load and therefore can’t determine if it is present in sufficient quantities to sicken you.
If you feel sick and get a PCR test any random virus DNA might be identified even if they aren’t at all involved in your sickness which leads to false diagnoses.
And coronaviruses are incredibly common. A large percentage of the world human population will have coronavirus DNA in them in small quantities even if they are perfectly well.
Do you see where this is going yet?
