ER Editor: Dr. Pascal Sacré, an ICU doctor at a hospital in Charleroi, Belgium, puts together a useful overview of the tests currently being relied on, rightly calling COVID-19 a House of Cards.
It all smells of a scam. Imagine:
- You get a False Positive PCR test result (a highly likely occurrence with this test): ‘You’re sick. You need to stay in quarantine for 14 days and we need to know who you’ve been in contact with’ so that those poor schmucks can also be quarantined. Medical police state.
As Dr. Sacré explains below, a positive PCR test result says nothing about your actually being sick – you’re probably not, nor in fact if you’re even carrying a sufficient quantity of the virus.
- You get a Negative Serology test result (again, highly likely): ‘You’re at risk. You’ve not had the disease so you need to be protected with a vaccine.’ Medical police state.
Dr. Sunetra Gupta has explained why, in fact, you may have been exposed to the virus and not gotten sick, yet your level of protection comes either from your own genetic predisposition or from previous exposure to the common cold virus. A negative serology test result is therefore meaningless, which means that mass serology testing programs, upon which public policy is determined, will produce a false picture of overall immunity being low in the population when it’s not. See Professor Sunetra Gupta: ‘COVID Epidemic on Its Way Out’ [Video].
And those deaths …George Floyd had covid, apparently. Guess what his death certificate will read!
You couldn’t make it up.
The Tests: The Achilles Heel of the COVID-19 House of Cards
Looking for more truth and getting closer to the truth is the best antidote to fear.
DR. PASCAL SACRÉ
“The tool is not the problem, it’s what we do with it.”
– Tests that are not reliable!
– False negatives (real patients not detected)
– False positives (patients who are not positive)
– Tests that detect fragments of the virus and not the virus itself!
– Tests that don’t quantify the viral load, the most important thing…
– Test kits infected with the virus itself: you could catch it by getting tested!
So, you’ve been tested? … Negative? Positive?
Maybe you’re like most people, eager to find out if you’ve got it or better yet, prove that you’re immune to the VID thing.
With this article, I don’t want to add a layer of fear to the pandemic of panic, spread by our dear media in recent months.
Nevertheless, even if some people don’t want to “know anything” and will do whatever they are told to do :
e.g. Wearing a mask everywhere all the time, staying away from your family and friends, not daring to go out or take public transport without your “armour and visor”, not daring to touch anything without wearing gloves stuck to the skin as a result of sweating… &etc.
I think that looking for more truth and getting closer to the truth is the best antidote to fear.
So, these tests! what are they?
Introduction: Diagnosing COVID-19 disease
People confuse the disease with the agent accused of causing it.
COVID-19 refers to the disease characterized by “airway involvement” with a wide variety of symptom patterns (see below).
It is caused by a virus, SARS-CoV-2, of the coronavirus family , SARS for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.
Another coronavirus of this type, SARS-CoV-1, had already occurred in 2003, less contagious but more dangerous (in terms of mortality).
FIRST, on the one hand, you have a disease marked by the existence of signs or symptoms . [No be confused with the causative virus]
The diagnosis is clinical!
Major signs/symptoms :
2. Dyspnea (difficulty breathing)
3. Chest pain
4. Anosmia (loss of sense of smell)
5. Dysgeusia (taste abnormality) with no other apparent cause.
Minor signs/symptoms :
2. Muscle aches and pains
4. Rhinitis (cold)
5. Sore throat
7. Anorexia (loss of appetite and weight loss)
8. Acute confusion
9. Sudden fall without apparent cause
As you can see, it’s a bit of everything and anything.
A little fever and a troubled sense of smell (which can be caused by a zinc deficiency) and hop! you’re clinically suspect of COVID-19.
SECOND, on the other hand, you are diagnosed as having the “causative virus”, SARS-CoV-2, linked to this clinical picture with possibly (severe forms) a severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) that can lead to hospitalization or even admission to the intensive care unit.
The main technique used around the world, in hospitals as well as by general practitioners and/or mobile screening centres, to detect the presence of the virus is called RT-PCR. This technique confirms the presence of SARS-CoV-2 (a fragment actually), not the disease!
Tests for the diagnosis of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus
For Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction, invented in 1985 by the Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry (1993), Kary Mullis.
It is a machine capable of detecting the smallest amount of DNA or RNA (nucleic acids) present in the cell being studied. It detects and then amplifies the detected material, much like a photocopier-enhancer.
The material detected is RNA in the case of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
The primers specific to the genetic material of the virus under study, in this case SARS-CoV-2, are all that is needed to detect the slightest trace of it in the cells collected.
A few definitions before going any further:
– The sensitivity of the test is the ease with which the test identifies the target.
– The specificity of the test is the ability of the test to identify the correct target and not another one.
The ideal test is both highly sensitive (100%) and highly specific (100%).
Is RT-PCR highly sensitive and highly specific? It depends.
– False negatives: RT-PCR comes back negative for SARS-CoV-2 even though the patient is infected. The less sensitive the test is, the more false negatives will occur.
– False positive: RT-PCR comes back positive for SARS-CoV-2 when the patient is NOT infected. The less specific the test is, the more false positives will occur.
Can you imagine the possible dramatic consequences of such errors, in terms of contagion, contamination, improper containment or epidemiological evaluation?
In the literature , the PCR technique is called “rapid, sensitive and reproducible”.
For the WHO, our health institutes, most of the media, everything is fine.
However, it’s not all that idyllic!
The first disappointment is that RT-PCR does not detect the virus, but a genetic trace (RNA) of the virus, which is not the same thing.
A positive RT-PCR test does not necessarily indicate the presence of a complete virus. It is the complete, intact virus that is the transmissible actor of COVID-19.
As the FDA [based on CDC] admits , the detection of viral RNA by RT-PCR does not necessarily indicate an active viral infection (with clinical syndrome)!
A second disappointment is that RT-PCR cannot quantify the viral load since it artificially amplifies (multiplies) the detected genetic material. It only says whether the virus is present or not, and again, only traces of the virus, not the whole virus.
Third disappointment, the technique is complex and has many limitations! Even more so in detecting RNA viruses as in the case of SARS-CoV-2.
“The interpretation of PCR results is difficult. Any PCR must be performed on a good quality sample and adapted to the indication. For some viral infections, a positive PCR is not synonymous with disease… The dialogue between the clinician and the microbiologist is essential for a good diagnosis.“ (RMS, 2007, Vol 3).
