Why PCR testing should not be used for public policy making
The following is a document, last updated on February 3, 2021, was prepared by the Stand for Health Freedom (SHF), a grassroots campaign which enables ordinary citizens to inject with their lawmakers through various platforms. The team behind SHF is composed of lawyers, educators, and doctors.
In this 2-page document, SHF summarizes the scientific evidences pointing to the numerous issues of PCR testing. It enjoins policy makers not to base coronavirus restrictions on PCR test results and calls on citizens to “ask state and local health department how they are responding to the WHO’s new guidance for the proper use of PCR test” [the new WHO guidance may be accessed here: WHO lowers cycle thresholds for PCR tests].
The document also calls all citizen activists to ask their state and local health department to:
- Count only those tests results that are run at 30 cycle thresholds or less.
- Publish the PCR cycle thresholds for their area, region, or state.
- Retract any case numbers that are based on cycle thresholds above 30.
Editor’s Note: An article written by Nicanor in May 2020 already revealed the many problems with PCR testing, see Faulty COVID-19 tests: Why prisoners love their jailers and never-ending lockdowns. But this document from SHF is powerful because it empowers ordinary citizens to advocate for their health and freedom. It explains concretely why governments must be transparent with the cycle thresholds they use, and why a simple positive test cannot be utilized to make health decisions. And while some people may think that this move is “misinformation”, the science shows that it is not.
In the Philippines, there is no official document which can tell us what cycle threshold is currently being used. When asked how they distinguish false positives, our health department has offered no answer. Despite this, our case rates were continuously falling, until March 2021, when vaccination started. We need to know what our cycle thresholds are in the country because it can help explain why cases continue to increase despite no major change in the coronavirus mandates in the country.
