So far in 2020: CNN.com has published 38,000 news articles containing the word "Coronavirus" and 40,000 news articles containing the term "COVID-19", MSNBC.com has published 4,700 news articles containing the word "Coronavirus" and 2,630 news articles containing the term "COVID-19", and FOXNews.com has published 38,200 news articles containing the word "Coronavirus" and 13,800 news articles containing the term "COVID-19".
Unfortunately, not once has CNN, MSNBC, or FOXNews published a single article containing the term "cycle threshold". The media is lying to the public about COVID-19 by making it seem as though the PCR "swab" testing used today has the ability to determine... yes you have COVID-19 or no you don't. The #1 question that the mainstream media should be asking today is... "Who determined that a cycle threshold of 40 should be used to determine whether or not you have COVID-19?"
A cycle threshold of 40 means that a person tests positive for COVID-19 if there is a match for one of the genetic sequences associated with SARS-CoV-2 in less than 40 cycles of amplification. After 39 cycles of amplification, there are 550 BILLION copies of the DNA being tested. If the PCR test doesn't find a match until 39 cycles, it means that the test is only finding trace amounts of one of the genetic sequences associated with SARS-Cov-2 and the person being tested has a 0% chance of getting sick or infecting another person, but based on today's CDC standards that person will count as a new positive case of COVID-19!
The truth is... it was already proven last month that a patient with a cycle threshold value of 35 or higher has a 0% chance of being contagious. Patients with a cycle threshold value of 33 or 34 also have an extremely low chance of being contagious.
We know somebody who works in one of the largest U.S. diagnostic labs and in recent weeks over 90% of all "positive" PCR tests for COVID-19 have had a cycle threshold value of 33 or higher. The fear-mongering media refuses to report this fact. They refuse to even explain the meaning of a cycle threshold value.
If today's media journalists wanted to earn their paycheck, they should do a report on what cycle threshold value is used to determine a positive COVID-19 test in every foreign country. Most foreign countries appear to be using cycle threshold values of between 25 and 35 to determine if a person is positive for COVID-19, which explains why they have lower amounts of COVID-19 cases.
