COVID19 PCR Tests are Scientifically Meaningless...
First a couple of reference definitions with their links.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a method widely used to rapidly make millions to billions of copies of a specific DNA sample, allowing scientists to take a very small sample of DNA and amplify it to a large enough amount to study in detail. PCR was invented in 1984 by the AmericanbiochemistKary Mullis at Cetus Corporation. It is fundamental to much of genetic testing including analysis of ancient samples of DNA and identification of infectious agents. Using PCR, copies of very small amounts of DNA sequences are exponentially amplified in a series of cycles of temperature changes. PCR is now a common and often indispensable technique used in medical laboratory and clinical laboratory research for a broad variety of applications including biomedical research and criminal forensics.
This is more of a medical/technical link and yet still important. At the outset, the following is stated
Regulatory status: For research use only, not for use in diagnostic procedures.
The question then is why is this test being used for the testing done around the country? Further on down in the specifics about the test kit are the bullet points - Quality Control and Limitations. These are important points to read and understand. (link above.)
From one of the medical suppliers -
PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix is a pre-formulated, optimized, universal 2X master mix for real-time PCR workflows. Coupled with user-supplied primer sets and template, PowerUp™ SYBR® Green Master Mix is designed to amplifiy targets for accurate gene expression analysis.
And here you can see the packaging.
This PCR test is the common test that is given at any COVID19 testing site. Are the medical personnel so clueless or inept as to continue to make use of a product and test procedure that clearly states that is not to be used in diagnostic procedures? When local, state, and national media in unison encourage and urge people to get tested we have to wonder if the entire process is about our health, or are there other nefarious goals?
