This video is of Kari Mullis, Ph.D. who invented the PCR (polymerase chain reaction) lab technique for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1993. His technique is used in all Covid-19 tests to determine whether someone tests positive for the disease. He states in this video, that his technique is not to be used to diagnose disease. In context, he was referring to HIV but the same principle would also apply to detecting for the presence of the SARs CoV-2 virus.
“If they can find this virus in you at all, and with PCR if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody...it doesn’t tell that you’re sick and it doesn’t tell you that the thing you ended up with, really was going to hurt you or anything like that."
Yet, we are told that the Covid-19 test is valid and reliable. Who are we to believe – the "experts" who urge everyone to get tested – or the Nobel Prize-winning chemist who invented the technique?
Fauci Agrees with Mullis
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, agrees that a PCR-based test is meaningless when using a cycle threshold of 35 and above.
If you get a cycle threshold of 35 or more, that the chances of it being replication competent are miniscule....You almost can never culture virus from a 37 threshold cycle, so I think if somebody does come in with a 37, 38, even 36, you gotta just say you know, it's just dead nucleotides – period.
In this interview, Fauci admits that the Covid-19 test is basically useless for diagnosing the disease since the cycle threshold determines whether the number of amplifications used produces accurate results. When a nasal swab is submitted, the RNA sample is converted to DNA using a process called reverse transcription. This DNA is then amplified exponentially using cycles to multiply this genetic material. This process is called amplification and each cycle doubles the amount of DNA copies made. Each test manufacturer limits their amplification at cycle thresholds anywhere from 35 - 40 cycles, or even higher. Thus for example, if enough of the DNA material resembling the virus is found at or before 35 cycles are completed, then the test is considered positive. Yet as Fauci points out, at a cycle threshold of 35 or more, the tests are not competent to produce accurate replication results. That is why the Covid-19 tests results in so many false positives. That is why people are asymptomatic despite testing positive for the disease – because they don't have the disease. That is why the number of cases reported are vastly inflated resulting in an atmosphere of fear.
Dr. Mullis' Opinion of Dr. Fauci
Do you inherently trust Dr. Fauci as an authoritative expert on Covid-19, testing, and vaccinations? Dr. Mullis didn't, but he's no longer around to voice his less than stellar opinion of Dr. Fauci since he died in 2019.
