WHO finally admits that PCR tests are unreliable
The World Health Organization has finally admitted in a memo from December 14, that high cycle thresholds on PCR tests for Sars-Cov-2 will result in false positives. The question is: Why only now?

This explosive information on the unreliability of PCR tests has been available for months. It is therefore curious that the WHO took so long to make such an announcement. Cynics argue that the WHO dragged their feet on purpose, because they wanted to make it appear as though vaccines actually work.
As FWM reported earlier, the design of the vaccine used false positive PCR results to boost its efficacy rate. Dr. Tommy Megremis had warned on Facebook: “The problem is in the false positivity if you will for the PCR test. If you are generally aware, the PCR test is used to amplify small amount of genetic material so as to recognize patterns of DNA by ‘cycling’. […] It works because if you amplify and cycle enough times to ‘grow’ legitimate DNA fragments, you get something with with a fair amount of specificity.
“What is becoming more and more apparent is that the PCR test was not designed as a diagnostic tool for infection, and really cannot function as one without having a huge amount of false positives, period. When it comes to Covid, the presence of viral particles picked up by the PCR technique does not and has not been quantitatively linked to an active ‘symptomatic’ infection. It simply cannot be so, because infection threshold as a result of viral load is different for each patient. It turns out, if you ‘cycle’ over around 25 times, the false positivity of Covid infection starts getting very high.”
The polymerase chain reaction tests (PCR) works by taking nucleotides – tiny fragments of DNA or RNA – and replicating them until they become enough in quantity to eventually identify.
The replication is done in cycles, with each cycle doubling the amount of genetic material. The number of cycles it takes to produce an identifiable gene is known as the “cycle threshold” or “CT value”. The higher the CT value, the more likely it is to test for the presence of Sars-Cov-2. Despite this, many governments and health officials have been relying on PCR tests to make far-reaching pronouncements.
According to the WHO: “Users of RT-PCR reagents should read the IFU carefully to determine if manual adjustment of the PCR positivity threshold is necessary to account for any background noise which may lead to a specimen with a high cycle threshold (Ct) value result being interpreted as a positive result.
“The design principle of RT-PCR means that for patients with high levels of circulating virus (viral load), relatively few cycles will be needed to detect virus and so the Ct value will be low. Conversely, when specimens return a high Ct value, it means that many cycles were required to detect virus. In some circumstances, the distinction between background noise and actual presence of the target virus is difficult to ascertain.”
Thus, any test with a CT value of over 35 is potentially meaningless. Dr Kary Mullis, the Nobel Prize laureate who invented the PCR process, has been adamant that was never meant as a diagnostic tool. Similarly, the MIQE guidelines for the use of PCR state: “Cq values higher than 40 are suspect because of the implied low efficiency and generally should not be reported.”
Therefore PCR tests will in future be done “under the new WHO guidelines”, running only 25-30 cycles instead of more than 35. This in turn, will result in the number of “positive Covid cases” plummeting, making it appear as if vaccines work.
Thus, after months of flooding the Covid data pool with false positives, miscounting deaths “by accident”, or adding “Covid-19 related death” on many death certificates, the WHO is now back-peddling on its claims.

BrusselsThe move by Elon Musk to rid the online platform of "woke" ideologues, has sparked EU concern over online content control. With Twitter dismantling its entire Brussels office, some EU officials claim the platform will no longer comply with their new rules on controlling online content.
ParisPrisoners convicted of terrorism-related offences are monitored by the judiciary and intelligence services upon their release. This has been a huge cost to French taxpayers.
BerlinAnyone who dares to complain about gas prices, which have increased at least six fold in the last year, is denounced as a traitor in Germany. In reality, many families do not know how they will stay warm since they are no longer able to afford heating.
BrusselsIn 2022, the Flemish government will pay €175 763.87 in membership fees to the World Economic Forum (WEF) and 27 000 Swiss francs (about €27 300) as participation fees to the annual meeting of the WEF in Davos. This is according to Flemish minister-president Jan Jambon's response to a parliamentary question by Flemish MP Sam van Rooy.
BudapestTo keep illegals flooding into the EU, human traffickers are now willing to accept the deaths of police officers. During a chase on the Hungarian highway, alleged Iraqi traffickers opened fire at the police. In the end, the traffickers could only be arrested and disarmed by a counter-terrorism unit.
KievTesla founder Elon Musk is once again becoming an important military factor in the Ukrainian theater of war. Musk has decided to take around 1 300 of his Starlink satellites, which previously covered the territory of Ukraine, off the grid due to financing problems.
KievAlthough his closest allies, the US and Poland, are certain that one of his rockets hit the Polish village, Ukraine's President Vladimir Zelensky insisted until Wednesday that his neighbour was the culprit. He has so far refused to apologize for the attack that killed two Polish citizens and destroyed a tractor.
CincuFrench NATO soldiers stationed at the Cincu military base in Romania bitterly complained to an investigative journalist about the terrible living conditions they suffer. They live in filthy prefabricated houses from Mali that are hardly heated, there are not enough toilets, and garbage is piling up in the camp.
LyonRight-wing and even Macron voters are strongly in favour of stricter measures regarding the reception and management of migrants on French territory, but it appears that the president has been deliberately deceiving his constituents. It is becoming increasingly difficult for the authorities and the media to make people believe that denouncing the migratory invasion is an "extreme right-wing" issue.
It is a small sensation that should ring all the alarm bells among the established players. According to a recent survey by the Wahlkreisprognose platform, AfD federal spokeswoman Alice Weidel is now the favorite for the job of chancellor in central Germany – ahead of incumbent Scholz (SPD).
