The WHO’s new guidance, which includes lower PCR thresholds, almost guarantees COVID “case” numbers will automatically drop dramatically around the world.
In an “inauguration” of its own while Joe Biden was being sworn into office, the World Health Organization (WHO) initiated new rules regarding the PCR assays used for testing for COVID-19.
Even though they’ve been widely used across the U.S. and around the world to determine who has a positive case of COVID, PCR assays are not designed to be used as diagnostic tools, as they can’t distinguish between inactive viruses and “live” or reproductive ones.
Besides that, previously, the WHO had recommended 45 “amplification” cycles of the test to determine whether someone was positive for COVID or not.
The thing is, the more cycles that a test goes through, the more likely that a false positive will come up — anything over 30 cycles actually magnifies the samples so much that even insignificant sequences of viral DNA end up being magnified to the point that the test reads positive even if your viral load is extremely low or the virus is inactive and poses no threat to you or anyone else.
What that means in plain language is that the more cycles a test goes through, the more false positives that are reported.
Now, with the WHO’s lower PCR thresholds, it’s practically guaranteed that COVID “case” numbers will automatically drop dramatically around the world.

I guess some things are impossibly to hide permanently, Trace. I suspect they will walk back a lot of the “official” narrative over the next few months.

Reblogged this on Alexanders' Blog and commented:
Really? And they waited until now?
The COVID-19 virus (SARS-CoV-2) is an RNA virus. And the PCR test amplifies the single strand RNA. The report says DNA. I also cannot find the recommendation by WHO setting the number of cycles for a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT). I would like to share this information but if I’m not technically correct or can point to a reference, my friends in the medical or scientific community will not take me seriously. Please help me.
Thomas the number of cycles associated with finding live virus in the sample is 30. Anything higher than 30 is very likely to produce false positives. WHO finally gave this guidance in a memo: https://web.archive.org/web/20210121170101/https://www.who.int/news/item/14-12-2020-who-information-notice-for-ivd-users
Kary Mullis,the inventor of the pcr test said himself it should not be used for the method of identifying viruses. The truth can not be hidden forever.
Too true, F. Pacheco. It’s my understanding that the CDC is revoking the PCR’s emergency approval at the end of the year and requiring labs to adopt some other method of diagnosing Covid 19.
