The PCR test, what’s considered the “gold standard” of SARS-Cov-2 tests, results in false positives — this is what the World Health Organization (finally) admits in their December 14 report. According to the report:
“The design principle of RT-PCR means that for patients with high levels of circulating virus (viral load), relatively few cycles will be needed to detect virus and so the Ct value will be low. Conversely, when specimens return a high Ct value, it means that many cycles were required to detect virus. In some circumstances, the distinction between background noise and actual presence of the target virus is difficult to ascertain.”
That PCR tests have exceptionally high false result rates is something that experts have already been warning the public of, even in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The higher the cycle threshold (CT), i.e., the number of amplification cycles used to detect RNA particles, the greater the chances of a false positive. Yet the CDC still recommends running PCR tests at a CT of 40 — even though anything over 35 should be deemed scientifically unjustifiable.
