(The Daily Barker) In a not-so-stunning coincidence, the World Health Organization has changed the diagnostic criteria for COVID-19 on the same day of the CCP installed Joe Biden as the so-called President of the United States.
Previously, a single positive PCR test was the definitive detection for those being diagnosed with COVID-19. Now they are considered as “an aid for diagnosis.”
Rather than a positive test determining that you have COVID-19, if you don’t show symptoms, another test is needed. These strict requirements will see a definitive drop in new cases of the deadly ‘Rona just as Biden ascends to the most prominent office in the world.
Don’t hold your breath, however, for the WHO to retroactively apply these numbers to previous cases of COVID-19 or offer any congratulations to Trump for his mitigation efforts. But if this new tighter diagnostic standard had been applied from the beginning of this shamdemic, the world would have seen that the numbers were massively bloated.
Recently, Knut Wittkowski, the former Head of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design at Rockefeller University, stated that the drastic decline of influenza can be traced to over diagnosing for COVID-19:
“There may be quite a number of influenza cases included in the ‘presumed COVID’ category of people who have COVID symptoms (which Influenza symptoms can be mistaken for), but are not tested for SARS RNA,” Wittkowski told Just the News on Thursday.
Those patients, he argued, “also may have some SARS RNA sitting in their nose while being infected with Influenza, in which case the influenza would be ‘confirmed’ to be COVID.”
Rather than admitting that there have been existing issues with the way in which COVID-19 cases have been reported, the CDC claims that the widespread adoption of mask wearing and social distancing were responsible for the drop in flu case.
Following widespread adoption of community mitigation measures to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, the percentage of U.S. respiratory specimens submitted for influenza testing that tested positive decreased from >20% to 2.3% and has remained at historically low interseasonal levels (0.2% versus 1–2%). Data from Southern Hemisphere countries also indicate little influenza activity.
What are the implications for public health practice?
Interventions aimed against SARS-CoV-2 transmission, plus influenza vaccination, could substantially reduce influenza incidence and impact in the 2020–21 Northern Hemisphere season. Some mitigation measures might have a role in reducing transmission in future influenza seasons.
So flu numbers were on the decline because of mitigation efforts at the same time that COVID-19 numbers were rising? This is cognitive dissonance at its best
Some may say that we didn’t know much about the coronavirus at the beginning of the outbreak and have developed while learning from our mistakes; after all, that’s the essence of “science”, right? But as Michael Thau points out – the WHO is simply returning to the way things used to be done:
For the past year the world has been kept in constant submission to the whims of mini tyrants and dictators locking people in their homes, shutting down businesses, shuttering schools and closing churches. The testing has been inconsistent, at best, but the only mainstay is the rising cases of COVID-19 which governments have used to justify Draconian mitigation efforts. Drug abuse, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, suicide, and social issues have skyrocketed since social distancing came into play, but suddenly it all goes away with one man being installed as POTUS.
The WHO should be held responsible for the damage caused to societies around the world from their false reporting. Don’t hold your breath for that. Joe Biden will receive credit for his ten executive orders meant to fix this issue along with increased police state measures further subjecting innocent citizens to dangerous over responses to a non-issue. As Americans, we cannot forget the lies which have been told to us.
