    A positive finding in a high cycle threshold PCR test does not mean one is ill or infectious or that they even HAD SARS-COV-2. What cycle threshold were they using?

    Exactly. There was a case the other day where an Austrian parliamentarian who clearly displayed that after being placed in Coca Cola, the result came up……positive! And as for those papaya and goats in Ghana which also came up after testing, also came up ‘positive’!!

    You really can’t make this stuff up!

    Another article with a list of positive tests. Are any of these people actually ill? What test is being used? What primer is being used in the test? How many cycles are being run? How many times have these people been tested before they tested positive? I have seen a previous article in the Thaiger where it was reported that someone tested negative twice and then tested positive and it was reported as a case. How does that work?
    As someone pointed out – this is a virus so deadly that you have to be tested to find out that you have it!!
