After Two Years, CDC Head Admits PCR Tests Produce False Positives
Yet the guidance for quarantining and CDC’s case numbers was based on them all this time
CDC head Rochelle Walensky admitted Wednesday that the agency has rejigged its guidance, including cutting COVID isolation times in half, based on the fact that PCR tests are producing massive amounts of false positives.
Noting that PCR tests for COVID can stay positive for up to 12 weeks after infection, Walensky stated “we would have people in isolation for a very long time if we were relying on PCRs.”
Er yeah, that’s been happening for two years now.
It’s a startling admission given that, as pointed out by commentator Yossi Gestetner, case numbers and people having to isolate, cancel events and close businesses was all based on potentially false positives from oversensitive PCRs.
In a separate interview, Walensky also admitted Wednesday that the agency’s latest guidance on COVID was based on what the government perceived people would accept.
“It really had a lot to do with what we thought people would be able to tolerate,” Walensky starkly admitted.
