  1. Daily Mail: "Globally, it is estimated that rates of flu may have plunged by 98% compared with the same time last year."
    The scam is beyond obvious at this point. Your life literally depends on you figuring this out and resisting while you still can.

  2. Trump holds "record rallies" and covid-19 reaches record infection rates. What a mess and it's all being conducted by a clown who goes around in circles, claiming he's "rounding the corner" … 🙁

  3. Treat the patients not the machines!!!!

    The PCR test amplifies genetic matter from the virus in cycles; the fewer cycles required, the greater the amount of virus, or viral load, in the sample. The greater the viral load, the more likely the patient is to be contagious.

    Most tests set the limit at 40, a few at 37. This means that you are positive for the coronavirus if the test process required up to 40 cycles, or 37, to detect the virus.

    Tests with thresholds so high may detect not just live virus but also genetic fragments, leftovers from infection that pose no particular risk — akin to finding a hair in a room long after a person has left, Dr. Mina said.

    The C.D.C.’s own calculations suggest that it is extremely difficult to detect any live virus in a sample above a threshold of 33 cycles. Officials at some state labs said the C.D.C. had not asked them to note threshold values or to share them with contact-tracing organizations.

    With a cutoff of 35, about 43 percent of those tests would no longer qualify as positive. About 63 percent would no longer be judged positive if the cycles were limited to 30.

    In Massachusetts, from 85 to 90 percent of people who tested positive in July with a cycle threshold of 40 would have been deemed negative if the threshold were 30 cycles, Dr. Mina said. “I would say that none of those people should be contact-traced, not one,” he said.

  4. Stop falling for the communist Media Scare tactics, Do you all not notice the only thing they want to talk about is the Corona Virus, I personally know several people who went to testing stations, the lines were long so they left without being tested……..yet……In the mail they received results that stated they were positive for c-19….. Wash Your Hands, Read the real Statistics …… Use your Common Sense…..Fact Hillary Paid for The Dossier/ Price tag to YOU $48,000,000 … FACT the Bidens are right Now being Investigated for Treason and Fraud … FACT The Corona 19 Virus was created in a lab in Wuhan China and set Loose on the World, Several Medical Journal Published Research (going back to 2004)Confirms this and the History of Combining 2 Strains of Covid and the changing of the molecular structure of the Virus to make it infectious from Bats to Humans…..If you still insist on living in a totalitarian communist Society …..Then Move…. there are thousands of people in China, Venezuela etc……Who would be more than ecstatic to exchange positions with you

  5. Flu season is on the rise plus covid19 deadly combination. I have two friends have died today from heart complications and positive to covid19. Rip Alex and Richard both only in 30s.
