PCR Testing was never reliable

So many on DR1 have been trying to expose the invalid amplification of virus being done with PCR testing, even the inventor of PCR testing saying it was not reliable for SARs type testing.

Now the flip-flopping CDC admits it was a faulty test.
I think the CDC is incompetent. They also tried to discredit Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine and yet later had to admit they had efficacy in early viral treatment.


Of course there will be those on this thread that will insist their facts come only from MSNBC for them to believe it.

After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

It begs the question as to what will be required to enter the US from abroad after December 31, 2021............and how fast can countries like the DR respond to the changes that will occur in high tourist season.

Maybe it puts an end to the fake PCR test document industry in the DR.

The US has required an Antigen test to enter, not a PCR test, So where is the connection to needing a PCR test to enter the USA?

Fake PCR tests? That'd be for Canadians, eh?

If that is the case for the US, then I stand corrected.

But the fake tests in the DR are still an issue......and probably will remain so.......regardless of what test is required.

The US only requires an Antigen test for entry, but some people will get a perhaps fake PCR test:

Q: Is there a specific type of COVID-19 test that must be taken? 


A: You will need a viral test (NAAT or antigen test) to determine if you are currently infected with COVID-19.

According to the article on Fox News, the problem is the inability of the PCR test to differentiate between covid and the flu

When it comes to Covid information as opposed to misinformation seems to me it's good practice to ignore fringe right-wing publications.


Viral Posts Misrepresent CDC Announcement on COVID-19 PCR Test

>Scientists consider polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, tests a highly reliable tool for diagnosing COVID-19. But social media posts are misrepresenting a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcement regarding the eventual discontinuation of its own test, falsely claiming the government has conceded that PCR tests aren’t reliable.

So now we know why they were saying that the seasonal flu has "disappeared" since the pandemic began... They just added all the people positive with flu in the covid cases total and called it a day 🤷🏻‍♂️

When it comes to covid misinformation, I only trust left-wing liberal media outlets to do fact checks. Like this one...
https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/22/politics/fact-check-biden-cnn-town-hall-july/index.html

Fact check: Biden makes false claims about Covid-19​

Considering how closely Dominican covid policies mirror American ones, it's imperative that Dominican doctors and residents are spared this sort of misinformation from the American president.

I don't think reliability is all that important. It makes the Capn Vax's of this world feel better.
