I call your attention to this article from Global Research of Canada by F. William Engdahl called Coronavirus Scandal Breaking in Merkel’s Germany. False Positives and the Drosten PCR Test. Engdahl highlights three scandals that are, in an honest world, hoaxbusters.
- On November 27, a group of 23 virologists, microbiologists and other scientists called for the journal Eurosurveillance to retract a January 23 article submitted by “Dr.” Christian Drosten (the reason for the “Dr.” will be made clear hereafter) that claimed to have developed a test for detection of Coronavirus, the 2019 version, Sars-CoV-2 using real time PCR. The test, adopted world-wide in the wake of Tedros Adhanom’s, head of WHO (who at least does not claim the title “Dr.”) recommendation. The group of 23 claims the paper contains ten fatal errors, and should not have been used as justification for the Stalinist-type lock downs, attacks on civil liberties, and quarantines.
- In his paper, Drosten gave a variety of primers for the RT-PCR test to use, There was no scientific rigor behind them. Others have pointed out that WHO primers are found in the human genome, and in various microbes we carry with us. The PCR test is routinely generating false positives to the degree that it is not highly unreliable, but completely so. Thus did a Portuguese court rule that quarantines based on positive PCR tests cannot be enforced. Engdahl also writes about the matter of cycles – the Portuguese court cited a study that concluded that beyond 25 amplification cycles the PCR test (when used as intended, for comparison of DNA strands) loses accuracy, so that at 30 amps it is only 70% reliable, and at 35, only 3% reliable. Remarkably, the Drosten paper recommends 45 cycles! At the level, the test is, according to Engdahl, “not worth a hill of beans.”
- “Dr.” Drosten may find himself in court defending his PhD thesis, which was never properly submitted to Goethe University, leaving that institution with pants down. By law, three copies are to be on file, but two of Drosten’s are missing, the third is water soaked.
