Many people had their suspicions that the COVID-19 pandemic would fade away once Joe Biden stepped into office.
While the mainstream media and celebrities were groveling at the feet of the Biden/Harris administration, the WHO quietly made this admission:
WOW: scientists worldwide incl @goddeketal, @Kevin_McKernan and @Bobby_Network were attacked for calling attention to the COVID (PCR) tests’ problems with false positives. @dailyclout covered this, almost no MSM. We were all right. https://t.co/mCpn3wWag6

Corruption is stunning. NOW the @WHO announces problems w PCR tests, advises lowering the ‘cycles’ wh had been too high. This will lower the false positive rate, leading to the impression that VACCINES and ‘LOCKDOWNS’ WORK! @who knew re false positives all along!! Via @goddeketal

Did the WHO admit the PCR tests lead to false positives?
Let’s look at the text directly from the WHO:
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.
Many epidemiologists have warned for months that PCR tests had a tendency to lead to false positives.
That’s because the cycle threshold is so high that it detects any miniscule viral load.
Watch this old clip of Dr. Fauci discussing the cycle threshold:
And lots of places have tested at cycle thresholds upwards of 40.
That’s a recipe for false positives.
Just look at the rate of false positive PCR tests:
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says the "challenge" with testing for #COVID19 in airports is 'the very high false positive rate' and adds 'only 7% of tests will be successful in identifying those who have the virus'.#KayBurleyhttps://t.co/7c8W5pWNmp pic.twitter.com/QG8EJnQbWH

The timing of the WHO’s latest PCR test admission raises eyebrows.
It comes on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Zero Hedge shared further details:
We have detailed the controversy surrounding America’s COVID “casedemic” and the misleading results of the PCR test and its amplification procedure in great detail over the past few months.
As a reminder, “cycle thresholds” (Ct) are the level at which widely used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test can detect a sample of the COVID-19 virus. The higher the number of cycles, the lower the amount of viral load in the sample; the lower the cycles, the more prevalent the virus was in the original sample.
Numerous epidemiological experts have argued that cycle thresholds are an important metric by which patients, the public, and policymakers can make more informed decisions about how infectious and/or sick an individual with a positive COVID-19 test might be. However, as JustTheNews reports, health departments across the country are failing to collect that data.
In fact, as far back as October, we brought the world’s attention to the COVID-19 “casedemic” and the disturbing reality of high-cycle threshold PCR tests being worse than useless as indicators of COVID-19 “sickness”. PJMedia’s Stacey Lennox said at the time:
Biden will issue national standards, like the plexiglass barriers in restaurants he spoke about during the debate, and pressure governors to implement mask mandates using the federal government’s financial leverage.
Some hack at the CDC or FDA will issue new guidance lowering the Ct the labs use, and cases will magically start to fall.
In reality, the change will only eliminate false positives, but most Americans won’t know that.
Good old Uncle Joe will be the hero, even though it is Deep-State actors in the health bureaucracies who won’t solve a problem with testing they have been aware of for months. TDS is a heck of a drug.
And now, as Lennox explains in detail below, we have been proved 100% correct as less than one hour after President Biden’s inauguration, the WHO proved us right.
In August of last year, The New York Times published an article stating that as many as 90% of COVID-19 tests in three states were not indicative of active illness. In other words, they were picking up viral debris incapable of causing infection or being transmitted because the cycle threshold (Ct) of the PCR testing amplified the sample too many times.
Labs in the United States were using a Ct of 37-40. Epidemiologists interviewed at the time said a Ct of around 30 was probably more appropriate. This means the CDC’s COVID-19 test standards for the PCR test would pick up an excessive number of false positives. The Times report noted the CDC’s own data suggested the PCR did not detect live virus over a Ct of 33. The reporter also noted that clinicians were not receiving the Ct value as part of the test results.
Yet a PCR test instruction document from the CDC that had been revised five times as of July 13, 2020, specified testing and interpretation of the test using a Ct of 40. On September 28, 2020, a study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases from Jaafar et al. had asserted, based on patient labs and clinical data involving nearly 4,000 patients, that a Ct of 30 was appropriate for making public policy. An update to the CDC instructions for PCR testing from December 1, 2020, still uses a Ct of 40.
Shortly before the New York Times article was published, the CDC revised its COVID-19 test recommendations, saying that only symptomatic patients should be tested. The media went insane, and Dr. Fauci went all over television saying he was not part of the decision to change the testing standards:
“I am concerned about the interpretation of these recommendations and worried it will give people the incorrect assumption that asymptomatic spread is not of great concern. In fact it is.”
So, of course, the Mendacious Midget™ had spoken, and the guidelines went back to testing everyone, all the time, with an oversensitive test.
Here’s what I expect in the coming months.
You’ll likely see PCR tests conducted at lower thresholds, which leads to fewer false positives.
That, in addition to the warmer weather of spring and summer, will lead to a dramatic decrease in cases.
This all coincides with Biden’s executive orders and the vaccine rollout.
And Sleepy Joe will be named a national hero for saving America from COVID.
Don’t be surprised if they even gave him a Nobel Prize.
Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s how I think this plays out in 2021.
