|Let’s enter the official world (of the insane)—where everyone is operating on the theory that a new coronavirus was discovered in China and the worthless diagnostic tests mean something and the case numbers are real and meaningful.|
| We execute all those absurd maneuvers and we land square in the middle of yet another scandal—this time at our favorite US agency for scandals, the CDC.|
The Atlantic, May 21, has the story, headlined, “How could the CDC make that mistake?”
The stark inference The Atlantic somehow failed to grasp is hugely inflating the data regarding the number of corona cases.
“We’ve learned that the CDC is making, at best, a debilitating mistake: combining test results that diagnose current coronavirus presence with test results that measure whether someone has ever had presence of the virus, which pretty much includes everyone, dead or alive. The agency confirmed to The Atlantic on Wednesday that it is mixing the results of PCR tests with antibody tests, even though the two tests reveal different information and are used for different reasons.” Mixing the apples with the oranges.
“Several states—including Pennsylvania, the site of one of the country’s largest outbreaks, as well as Texas, Georgia, and Vermont—are blending the data in the same way. Virginia likewise mixed the PCR viral-presence tests with antibody test results until last week, but it reversed course and the governor apologized for the practice after it was covered by the Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Atlantic. Maine similarly separated its data on Wednesday; Vermont authorities claimed they didn’t even know they were doing this.”
“‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’ Ashish Jha, the K.T.Li Professor of Global Health at Harvard and the director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, told us, when we described what the CDC was doing. ‘How could the CDC make that mistake? This is a mess’.”
“The CDC stopped publishing anything resembling a complete database of daily COVID test results on February 29, 2020…”
First of all, the CDC’s basic mission is publishing disease statistics on an ongoing basis. Reporting partial data, mixed apples and oranges data is totally wrong and misleading. The big deal, of course, is combining results from two different tests—the PCR and the antibody—and placing them in one lump, as though this is factual and indicative of something when knowing full well it is not.
It appears the experts believe only PCR viral presence tests should be used to count the number of COVID cases. This test is meaningless because presence of virus is universal. People are all equally exposed. The only difference is whether their immune-response is able to prevent any illness, or whether their immune response is ineffective due to existing poor health.
The Atlantic article fails to mention the real problem : COMBINING THE TWO TESTS WILL VASTLY INFLATE THE TOTAL NUMBER OF CASES.
We’re not talking about categories like “rate of infection” or “percentage.” We’re talking about plain numbers of cases of corona virus presence.
PCR tests will indicate corona presence and some antibody tests will indicate past corona immune response activity. Adding them together will pump up the number of cases. You know, that big number they flash on TV screens a hundred times a day.
“Coronavirus cases jumped up again yesterday, and the grand total in the US is now…blah blah blah”
THAT number is used by media and government and related con artists to scare the people and justify lockdowns and to prevent reopening the economy.
Therefore, what the CDC is doing is not a mistake. They’ve managed to create the illusion that absolute case numbers are higher than they are, and even though they are meaningless because it would be difficult to find someone who does not have corona virus in their VIROME.
Somehow, these “mistakes” always seem to result in worse news, not better news. The “errors” are always to bolster the ‘experts’ side rather than the reality side.
Case in point: the computer prediction of COVID deaths in the UK and US made by that ‘abject failure, Neil Ferguson’, whose track record, going back to 2001, has been one horrendous lunatic exaggeration after another. His 2020 projections of 500,000 COVID deaths in the UK and two million in the US were directly used to justify lockdowns in many countries. For the right price, Ferguson will produce figures on-demand that say anything fake experts want.
The CDC, back in 2009, stopped reporting the number of Swine Flu cases in the US—while still claiming that number was in the tens of thousands. This was exposed by then-CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson. The CDC stopped counting cases, because the overwhelming percentage of tissue samples from patients was coming back from labs with no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu. And yet, in a later retrospective “analysis,” the CDC claimed that, at the height of the “epidemic,” there were 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US…complete and utter fake nonsense.
Going all the way back to 2003 and SARS, the CDC and other public health agencies around the world hyped the dangers to the sky; the final official death count, globally, when the dust cleared? 800 counted, with probably none being real.
There is a tradition of lying on the high side, blowing up figures in order to create the illusion of destruction. This has all been done to create the stage setting for this current virus which, if it really exists, is pretty much totally harmless.
CDC? Mistake? The agency is certainly incompetent. But that’s just the beginning of the story.
The only time they say there is no danger is when they’re lying through their teeth about the effects of vaccines. The WARP vaccine is lurking in the background, waiting and hoping the public will be sufficiently duped into a stampede to be the first to get vaccinated with this untested bio-weapon.
SO HOW MANY COVID CASES SHOULD WE SUBTRACT TO GET THE ACTUAL TOTAL?
“Probably, whatever the TOTAL is. Just when a few governors are trying to reopen their economies, a gigantic case-counting deception at the CDC is taking the wind out of their sails. The millions of Americans suffering financial devastation could be pushed back into a hole. Who is screaming to high heaven about THAT on the nightly news? No one. Why not?
