CDC begins testing Americans for the Coronavirus—but how?

As my readers know, I’ve been presenting evidence AGAINST the idea that the China “epidemic” is caused by a new coronavirus. (archive here)

Of course, the World Health Organization and the US Centers for Disease Control are relentlessly pushing the idea that: this is a spreading epidemic, and it is caused by COV-19, a new human coronavirus.

Now, the US Centers for Disease Control is rolling out a program to test Americans (e.g., travelers who have been to China). As time passes, the program will likely pull larger numbers of Americans into that net.

The CDC program immediately raises two problems: why bother testing for a virus if it isn’t really causing human disease; and what kind of test is being done?

In this article, I’m focusing on the type of test, and whether it’s accurate, even if you assume the coronavirus is causing disease.

Reading through CDC literature (see also here), I believe the two most prevalent US testing methods are: antibody, and PCR.

Antibody tests are notorious for cross-reactions. This means factors in no way relevant to a given virus can make the test read positive. In that case, the patient would be falsely told he “has the coronavirus.” But it gets worse. Traditionally, antibody tests reading positive were taken as a good sign for the patient: his immune system had contacted a germ and defeated it. Then, starting in 1984, the science was turned upside down: a positive test was, astoundingly, taken to mean the patient was ill or would soon become ill.

The PCR test (which requires excellent technicians who will not make any number of possible mistakes) takes a tissue sample from a patient which might contain a tiny virus particle(s) much too small to be observed—and blows it up many times, so it can be seen. However, the test says nothing reliable about HOW MUCH virus is in the patient’s body. Why is that important? Because millions and millions of replicating virus in the body are necessary to even begin talking about actual illness. A positive PCR test, nevertheless, will be taken to mean the patient “has the epidemic disease.” —An even deeper issue: where is the PRIOR PROOF that the PCR is testing for a virus that actually causes disease?

The prospect of these two tests being done on Americans is not comforting, to say the least. People will be roped into believing they are “epidemic cases,” and therefore need to be isolated, and treated with highly toxic antiviral drugs.

In the event they become ill, from the drugs, they’ll be told “the coronavirus is doing the damage.” In some cases, this will result in even further dosing with the same drugs, at higher levels—a disaster.

A very small percentage of doctors are aware of the profound shortcomings of these two diagnostic tests. Most of them will shrug off their doubts and perform the tests anyway, because refusal would endanger their careers and medical licenses.

This is the sordid drama now unfolding in the American landscape.

It’s not just America. The same tests are being done all over the world.

    As I predicted, here and there, we are seeing more “confirmed” cases (i.e. test positive) with untraceable route-of-infection or with implausible route. A couple of cases in Hunan were traced to a contact 34 days ago.

    And of course, no one would consider the obvious explanation – that the test itself is phony.

    Executive Summary of 20 days of research

    It is not even certain that it IS a virus or that it is dangerous. It is only so on condition that we are told the truth about the properties of the Coronavirus.

    If it turns out that there are other secret reasons than what we are told, there is a danger of confirming a false story.

    This also applies to alternative media: Both mainstream and alternative media accept the premise of the story itself of the virus and its postulated properties. Although mainstream and alternative media are in opposition to each other, BOTH confirm the premise; that it is a virus that is the cause, although there may be another cause (s).

    Everyone juggles axiomatically in the smallest detail on the premise that virus is the cause – that it has certain properties, whether it can be biologically created in a laboratory, whether it has a high or low risk of infection (R_0), death rates, censorship, etc – and enormously complex thought cathedrals are subsequently created based on the basic assumption (axiom). These thought cathedrals and constructions may be in opposition to each other, but all operate from the basic assumption; that it is a virus that is the cause – and 99% of all analysts exclude all other causes.


    • Rick Potvin says:

      You have obviously studied philosophy at the university level to write that last paragraph! Excellent.

      So let me take your line of thought one step further. What would it mean that the head of the W.H.O. would conclude that the rate of death of corona virus is higher than the rate of regular flu?

      I’ve been constructing a “thought cathedral” that explains how the W.H.O. has failed to provide a “control” for their “cases” as would be needed in a proper case-control-study. I see how I made a mistake now. I adopted his assumption that a virus is the cause!

      But of course, Jon’s been telling us this for awhile… that a virus doesn’t have to be the cause.

  5. GenaT says:

    Even the CDC is admitting the millions of test kits they distributed around the nation are faulty and are finding both an unacceptably large number of false positives and false negatives. Supposedly due to a “faulty” reagent in the kits.

    They have, for some reason, apparently decided to use San Antonio, TX, where I live, as some sort of testing area for this disease, whatever it might be. They brought in about 100 people to be quarantined at an abandoned guest area on Lackland AFB, of whom two showed signs of illness while refueling in California (what illness? They really don’t know, fever and the sniffles) and they were hospitalized in isolation in California. Within a week, another member of that group of 100 also showed signs of illness, and was hospitalized in a large public hospital right in the middle of the large medical complex, in this city of over one million people.
    Yesterday, the 16th, they were supposed to pick up around 300 more people, off one of those cruise ships in Japan, and also bring them here to San Antonio for a 14 day quarantine. They should have been here by now, I have not seen anything since the announcement they were bringing 300 more people here.
    I’m wondering if enough people get sick, for whatever reason, that they can blame on this pandemic, they might try to force the people here to allow them to experiment with us with mandatory use of that RNA vaccine they have had lying around for awhile, but have never gotten approval to even test it on people because it is unknown what the possible long-term effects might be.

    • el gallinazo says:

      One should not forget that they used AZT and other DNA terminator drugs in high doses to kill off the “HIV positive” people in a matter of months early on. They have since cut back the dosage by an order of magnitude, so it only makes the “patients” feel crappy but doesn’t kill them. The HIV/AIDS scam has been such a giant success, and it still is paying dividends in so many ways, that these psychopaths will probably reuse the old protocol.

    Their POISON Vaccines do NOT PREVENT DISEASE. They only CAUSE DISEASE(S) It’s Their GUARANTEE of Repeat Business. Once they vaccinate our, otherwise HEALTHY Babies, Puppies and Kittens, they now have us for Lifetime costumers (IF the vaccine don’t kill us first, which in many cases they do) Vaccines go straight to our brains, Causing many MENTAL Malfunctions. From many VARIABLES of AUTISM. As Bipolar, Asbergers, etc. etc. etc.

    When our Military GI’S are in Boot Camp, they are forcibly Vaccinated with every vaccine that comes down the Pike. Including Smallpox vaccine which has been BANNED for years, because it was causing so many DEATHS. As many as 22, GI’S have been committing Suicide EVERY day. Most before even going out to war. It is believed by many, that the Vaccines are the Cause due to severe Depression and etc. that vaccine cause. It is known that Vaccines cause AGGRESSION in Humans and Animals. Do the math, please.

    I read that the state of Florida had received the tests and was intending to start testing people for the supposed “corona virus” last week. However no more information was given as to exactly where or how people where going to be tested. I thought it was likely to be people already in hospitals as well as people being admitted in the ER departments. I am of the opinion that whatever is going to be given by doctors or hospitals to people that “test positive” for the “corona virus” will be given by mouth and/or injection and that medication is what actually will make the tested patients ill in some way, likely with a form of pnemonia so they can declare a pandemic. I base this on the reporting that people that became ill in Africa with the “ebola virus” reported that they became ill after taking vaccines at the local hospital. Lastly and importantly it was in Florida last summer and I believe also the summer before that the genetically modified mosquitos where released. Whatever modified diseased genetic tissue that was placed in those mosquitoes is now in the people who were bitten by them. I take staying away from doctors and hospitals very seriously, I advise my family members to do the same.

    As usual Jon you lay out rational possibilities and expose the level of corruption on a world wide scope. Unfortunately your unable to provide a key ingredient in the process of exposing the lies! That in which I’m speaking is HOPE for humanity. I’m quite good at seeing behind the curtain also, but without some sense of hope what’s the point.
    Could you present some positive outcomes from all of this chaos the entire world is in?

    • Alan says:

      Isn’t it comforting to know that God hopes for humankind to live happily on this earth (before moving on to the next), and guiding Christians (the brave kind who are “awake” and actively expose and fight evil) and sages alike to repel the evil matrix controllers and bring true freedom to all? Have (true and /correct/) faith in God, and we will win.

      Just knowing the true nature of this “epidemic” shows us the proper way to deal with it. We should be healing the sick people, rather than getting all paranoid and quarantining (imprisoning) healthy people based on phony tests.

  9. Pft says:

    With a respiratory virus, asymptomatic individuals testing positive for antibodies simply means one has been exposed. Meaningless information except in the very early stages of a new virus outbreak.

    Also the validity of these tests for the new virus is unknown simply because no extensive testing has taken place. They cant possibly know if the antigens they use are specific for this virus, and the sensitivity of the test for these antigens

    Once a virus has become endemic such information becomes meaningless anyways unless there is a symptomatic infection. The value would lie in treatment decisions assuming this virus requires different treatment than any other cold or flu. We don’t quarantine over colds or flu and we should not for this one either.

    HIV turned a positive antibody test into something sinister. Supposedly it never went away and went dormant after infection and subsequent antibody response while remaining infectious for life. Antibodies remained for life. Thats the story. Nothing like thats been suggested for coronavirus. In fact studies have shown antibodies after infection/recovery from coronavirus disappear quickly and at least 98% recover (more like 99.8% I think since many don’t get diagnosed or tested with mild symptoms)

    So its not really been proven this virus is any more of a problem than a bad cold or flu. Beyond its novelty and marketing there should be no quarantines or other restrictions. Let it run its course.

    This is really nothing more than a marketing exercise for a new vaccine. This vaccine will likely be mandatory, at least for anyone wanting to get on a plane. It doesn’t matter if the vaccine is ineffective, because the flu vaccine is not either , and its no worse than the flu. The fact the vaccine may cause worse effects than the virus is also not a problem since the industry and regulatory agencies have become proficient in covering this up and control the MSM. Manufacturers have no liability to boot. In fact, vaccines can be used for digital identity (2020 ID), infertility programs and perhaps reducing life expectancy. Use your imagination. It is after all the neomalthusians behind mandatory vaccines and lowering standard of living through Climate Change scares to bring on a carbon tax tat will make energy and food too expensive for the non-elite.

    I’m surprised that Mike Adams jumped on the virus bandwagon. I guess it works with his worst-case scenario motif.

    • Protestant says:

      Yes, I was also surprised that Mike Adams was pushing chitin as a “health product”, and he deleted my comment on his website about it. It’s important that people know the truth, so here it is:

      Shocking research shows that INSECT CHITIN NANOFIBERS cause the amyloid plaques behind Alzheimer’s, autism, and other neurological diseases. Though vertebrates like mammals & birds have a natural defence enzyme called “Chitinase” that dissolves invertebrate chitin, mad scientists have disabled that by creating horrible Chitin Nanofibers that bond with mammal Hyaluronic Acid, which allows them to invade the entire nervous system.

      The depopulation crazies have already been using Chitin Nanofibers in cosmetic surgery, creating people with half-insect tissue in their faces, and touting these nanofibers as “drug delivery systems” for medicines, vaccines, and even public water supplies as a “water purifier”.

      Even worse: scientists have known for some time that CAFFEINE BLOCKS CHITINASE, our protective enzyme against insect chitin. Finland has the highest rate of Alzheimer’s dementia in the entire world, followed by Uruguay and the USA. Finland also has the highest per capita coffee consumption in the world, and the USA is not far behind, along with caffeine soda and sports drinks for kids. But what about Uruguay, where coffee consumption is relatively low? “Mate” is the answer, the favourite high caffeine drink in Uruguay. Humanity is under attack, by Globalists determined to get insect chitin into our brains, which fits right in with the Illuminati worship of Xeper the Egyptian Dung Beetle.

      “Fungal Enolase, β-Tubulin, and Chitin Are Detected in Brain Tissue from Alzheimer’s Disease Patients”

      “Chitin has been discovered to accumulate in the diseased tissue of mammals, including humans, afflicted with a disease characterized by formation of congo red-staining plaques. Such diseases include Alzheimer’s disease, spongiform encepalopathies, type II diabetes, atrial amyloidosis, and the like. A method for detecting the chitin in the mammal is described which is useful for diagnosing disease caused by accumulation of the chitin or amyloid plaques comprising chitin in tissue. Further described is a method for treating a disease in the mammal caused by the accumulation of chitin or amyloid plaques comprising chitin by administering a composition which inhibits formation of the chitin or degrades the chitin.
      Amyloid plaque as a target for therapeutics that function by blocking or disrupting chitin synthesis or activity.

        Thank-you for this information. I don’t drink coffee to often and will be drinking it even more rarely now. I will be doing further research on this as well.

      • Jake says:

        How did you come up with the coffee connection?
        I love coffee in the morning to help with my fast.

  11. adolfo rondo says:

    According to a NY times article there is NO antibody test so far for the coronavirus.

  12. Rick says:

    When do corona virus symptoms kick in?

    Right off the bat. haha.

  13. Richard says:

    The “corona” virus… Interesting, the name. A corona is the visible energized plasma field around a star… or a “crown” = halo = aura. Intersting.

    Looking at this video of the coronavirus under a microscope, it appears more like the aurora borealis. Those aren’t hairs moving. That is energy.

    Interesting that China rolled out 5g on a large scale on the couple of days around Halloween, 2019. Within a couple of weeks, the first death from the virus occurred. A couple more weeks… clusters. And so on.

    Meanwhile, the people with the virus outside of the 5G environments seem to be fine (i.e with regard to significant symptoms).

    Read Dr. Robert O. Becker’s books, The Body Electric” and “Cross Currents: The Perils of Electro-Polution and The Promise of Electro-Medicine” In these works, you can read about hundreds of research projects that are very ominous.

    By the way, the symptoms of radiation sickness, itself, are fever, nausea, headaches and body aches, etc.

    I propose a treatment for those afflicted. Get the heck out of these unnatural fields and frequencies.
