By the way, that BBC mortuary prick Clive Myrie is from my neck of the woods. He used to go to Hayward Secondary School right near to where I used to.

Users of IVDs must read and follow the IFU carefully to determine if manual adjustment of the PCR positivity threshold is recommended by the manufacturer.

WHO guidance Diagnostic testing for SARS-CoV-2 states that careful interpretation of weak positive results is needed (1). The cycle threshold (Ct) needed to detect virus is inversely proportional to the patient’s viral load. Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken and retested using the same or different NAT technology.

WHO reminds IVD users that disease prevalence alters the predictive value of test results; as disease prevalence decreases, the risk of false positive increases (2). 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.

Most PCR assays are indicated as an aid for diagnosis, therefore, health care providers must consider any result in combination with timing of sampling, specimen type, assay specifics, clinical observations, patient history, confirmed status of any contacts, and epidemiological information.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is a type of coronavirus, a large family of viruses.

Oh gee, a new kind of cold.

Yet Another Study Shows—Yet Again—That Lockdowns Don’t Work​

by Ryan McMaken | Mises.org
January 22nd 2021, 2:21 pm

"We find no clear, significant beneficial effect of [lockdowns] on case growth in any country….In none of the 8 countries and in none out of the 16 comparisons [examined] were the effects of [lockdowns] significantly beneficial"

California keeps key virus data out of public sight

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom has from the start said his coronavirus policy decisions would be driven by data shared with the public to provide maximum transparency.

But with the state starting to emerge from its worst surge, his administration won’t disclose key information that will help determine when his latest stay-at-home order is lifted.

State health officials said they rely on a very complex set of measurements that would confuse and potentially mislead the public if they were made public.

Dr. Lee Riley, chairman of the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health infectious disease division, disagreed.

“There is more uncertainty created by NOT releasing the data that only the state has access to,” he said in an email. Its release would allow outside experts to assess its value for projecting trends and the resulting decisions on lifting restrictions, he wrote.

Suddenly Optimistic Fauci Sees Pandemic "Plateauing," Feels "Liberated" Under Biden Admin​

Finally, Dr. Fauci said Thursday that it looks like new cases in the USA might actually be plateauing, despite the holiday surge we were promised by him a few months ago. But where is this more optimistic frame of mind based on? Well, the diminutive doctor admitted that he feels "liberated" by Biden

Wall Street Confirm Covid Lockdown Is Triggering Global Depression Stock Market Crash​

Must have been due to sleeping on a cold hard concrete garage floor...or maybe the 90% inaccurate PCR process.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has cautioned experts not to rely solely on the results of a PCR test to detect the CCP virus.

In updated guidance published on Jan. 20, the WHO said that lab experts and health care practitioners should also consider the patient’s history and epidemiological risk factors alongside the PCR test in diagnosing the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.

The new guidance could result in significantly fewer daily cases.
Or the CCP saying "we've got this"? I'm glad they are using people to deliberately spread this shit around cuz by golly, it's not an attack.
Naw...now they have their dood in the oval orfice, the virus doesn't need to be here no maor.
