    CDC to drop 'gold standard' COVID test: PCR risks false positives......

    PCR tests, long hailed as the "gold standard" in detecting SARS-Cov-2 cases, will be dropped by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the beginning of next year.


    Polymerase chain reaction tests have been a mainstay of the U.S. and global response to COVID-19 since early in 2020, but health officials have warned the diagnostic tool poses a risk of false-positive results.


    The CDC announced this month that it would be withdrawing its request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the emergency use authorization of the test. The agency urged laboratories to "begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test."


    "Although the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus ... Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel met an important unmet need when it was developed and deployed and has not demonstrated any performance issues, the demand for this test has declined with the emergence of other higher-throughput and multiplexed assays," she said via email.



    Nordlund did not respond to followup queries asking if the risk of false positives had motivated the CDC's discontinuance in any way.


    In a July 2020 interview on an infectious disease podcast, Fauci warned that the sensitive PCR tests might, if allowed to progress through too many amplification cycles, return a "positive" result when it was actually just detecting "dead nucleotides."


    The World Health Organization earlier this year warned in a medical product alert that PCR tests carry with them the risk of "false positives" because the test might only be picking up small fragments of the virus via heavy amplification.


    "[D]isease prevalence alters the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence decreases, the risk of false positive increases," the alert stated. "This means that the probability that a person who has a positive result (SARS-CoV-2 detected) is truly infected with SARS-CoV-2 decreases as prevalence decreases, irrespective of the claimed specificity.".....snip~

    Imagine that.....but but but the infections are going up. Its the Unvaccinated, yet people vaccinated can get infected and spread a lil wuhu around, huh? The main test that these mopes were using.

    They knew they were getting false positives but they didn't care.

    Exactly and they knew their infected counts were way off. Funny how this comes out after the Liberal Reporter mentioned Fauci and others like him not believing in natural immunity.

    They got what they wanted all right and have made some adjustments to sell vaccination.

    So all those people who died, supposedly from COVID, may or may not have had COVID.

    Let me put on my surprised face.....

    Remember how I reported on the lines of well over 100 people waiting for COVID tests at the local Urgent Care? A majority of them very healthy looking young people.

    I see nobody waiting now.

    They are doing nurses just like conservatives on social media. A large group was saying the ones dying in the hospitals are the ones that got the shots. They claim the media is lying again. I only know of 3 that died after taking the shots. These were young people in their 30's and 40's. One blood clot and two had seizers. Was it due to the shots, maybe.

    Worse is all those alleged infections that were wrong. Now the CDC is validating that their test that they relied on is wrong.

    I noticed the Democrats tools.....the Lame Stream Media dont have enough braincells to even ask questions about the CDC stopping their gold standard test. Blacks and Latinos will be like.....see. Told ya that the Government cant be trusted.
