  1. Lack of proof of asymptomatic spread

    This is a study that looked at several hundred asymptomatic people (tested positive for covid, but had no symptoms). They looked at 1,174 close contacts of these asymptomatic individuals and could not find ONE CASE of a person getting COVID from the asymptomatic people. It’s difficult to prove a negative, but if you can’t find one case out of nearly 1200 people who were in close contact to asymptomatic individuals, then we can at least conclude that if asymptomatic spread happens at all, it’s extremely rare.

    “There were no positive tests amongst 1,174 close contacts of asymptomatic cases. ”


    Here’s another study that was also not able to find even one case of asymptomatic spread:


    This means that as far as the science goes, testing asymptomatic people is ludicrous since they don’t spread the virus, yet we are wasting millions of dollars on such tests.

    For more on asymptomatic spread, see Proof of Asymptomatic Spread.

  2. So 198 samples processed and out of that you confirmed 69 new infections but somehow cleared 225 people to leave quarantine? The math says they’re releasing lots of people without actually testing them. And that guarantees that some of these people are still infectious. Keep playing with fire…

    • The PCR tests are overrun with false positives too. That is why they are being withdrawn worldwide. Our public health officials are dumb followers who craft their policy from CNN and the preferences of Massa’s hotel lobby.
