If PCR-negative COVID-like illness is often COVID, every single test-negative case control study is completely worthless and the vaccine trial efficacy numbers mean nothing at all.
This makes so much sense. I work in a hospital operating room and we have 100+ staff and we cannot social distance some of the time. All of 2020 and most of 2021 I was expecting a time where a lot of staff would be out with covid. It finally happened at the end of 2021. At the same EXACT time (about a two week span during the peak of omicron in our city), a large percentage of vaccinated staff was out with a "mysterious serious illness" (that perfectly mimicked covid symptoms) that tested negative for covid, flu, and RSV. So am I to believe tough-as-nails OR staff are calling in sick for days on end with the common cold? Or that the vaccinated individuals are also catching covid along with the rest of the staff?
This whole house if cards needs to crumble. I saw this phenomena firsthand with my cousin and then my teenage daughter. My cousin was sure she had COVID in February of 2020 but had several negative PCR tests. Then she was tested for antibodies a few months later and had them. In my daughter's case she had a bad cold but tested negative on PCR and continued attending high school. Two months later a vaccinated student in her class got Covid, forcing her into quarantine and testing. At that point she tested positive even though completely asymptomatic. It's like the world has turned upside down on disease prevention
That last sentence - wow.
It’s very interesting to read information like this and then witness first-hand these things happening around me. The fact that this is happening so blatantly in front of peoples’ faces with nothing to cover it up but thinly veiled lies, and they still can’t see it…. will prolong this issue and issues like it indefinitely. Thank you for not staying silent.
About a month ago I had a common cold based on symptoms and duration of illness. Feb 25. fine and no vax!
Chris, you know that the pcr did not (and still does not) have primers for SARS2 proteins? it says that in the application for EUA. CDC admitted this in June 2021. FDA said future pcr tests have to discriminate between flu and cold. The pcr test was made to be sensitive for flu A&B, strep, adeno virus, strep, and a plant virus medley. If I understand correctly, here they did serology plus symptoms. I can see why the jabbed would not come up with a pcr+ especially with the overwhelming spike production perhaps overwhelming anything that could have made a + test? So, it is interesting that a negative pcr crops up. .
Chris, your numbers do not make sense. They initially found 314 PCR Confirmed, 58 Probables, 46 Suspects, and 280 Non-Suspects. PCR neg probables + PCR+= 314 + 58 = 372
IgM + in 50% of probables
IgG + in 60% of the probables
Even assuming all of the probables were COVID, probables = 58/372 of the covid cases, which is 15.5% of cases. You state that 79% of those hospitalized with covid are PCR negative. You should state that 15.5% of those hospitalized with COVID are PCR negative. The rest of your analysis therefore is based on a false 79%. As a clinician you has spent most of my career caring for critically ill patients, we know that the ICUs are filled with non-vaccinated patients, >90% of ICU patients. Unfortunately you are misinterpreting data.
Hi dumb dumb
You conveniently left out that 30% of "probables" were tested outside of the 7-day period when a PCR is most likely to be positive.
What are your thoughts on the rct published in Nejm?
Placebo group had significantly more severe disease. No PCR test needed to interpret the results.
Could there be any such thing as vaccines causing false-positive PCR swab? I ask on account of people finding apparent acute immunosuppression where covid spikes 2 weeks after vaccines.
So talk to the Danes. They're supposedly doing the best epidemiology. Or the Israelis. If you don't have your own contacts, get John Campbell to put you in touch.
