Speaking on RTE Radio earlier today, Clare based GP Dr. Máire Finn told presenter Claire Byrne, that “the only circulating virus in the country at the moment is Covid, so if you have any nasal respiratory symptoms, anything of that nature, it’s Covid until proven otherwise.” Her comments echoed those of Health Service Executive Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Colm Henry, who told RTE last week that “fortunately, we have no flu this season.” Praise Jesus it’s a miracle.
Finn had been asked by the presenter about the numbers of patients contacting her surgery complaining of Covid. Finn said “I feel the patient attitude is changing, people are reluctant to go for a test and it’s not necessarily out of any fear it’s out of convenience….but there’s a lot of people saying well really this is just what I get every year, this is just my sinus you know.” She then went on to say that Covid is the only circulating virus in the country. The presenter was typically useless.
To suggest that Covid is the only virus in Ireland right now is absurd. So flu, chest infections, colds, hepatitis, mumps, chickenpox, warts, polio, herpes and norovirus have disappeared? Of course not and there’s the rub. The Irish are wising up. The patient who said “ah sure it’s the type of thing I get every winter” is spot on. That’s exactly what it is. Maybe she knows that submitting herself for a PCR test won’t end well. The widely discredited test would inevitably bring back a positive result and she would have to isolate, as would anyone she’s been in contact with.
Dr. Vernon Coleman has written
“First, the PCR test is not specific for covid-19 since it merely detects RNA which can come from all sorts of sources. Second, in order to examine the RNA, the swab needs to be amplified by 25 to 30 times. If you amplify too much then the result is unreliable and unscientific because it picks up bits of debris left over from a cold or flu in the past. Even the WHO says that the amplification should not be done more than 30 times.
But governments everywhere are amplifying PCR swabs by up to 40 times – meaning that the results are utterly worthless because they are picking up old bits of virus. Anyone who has, or has had, any sort of cold or flu bug in the last year or two is being counted as a positive PCR test. And that’s what is happening in the UK. The NHS Guidance uses a PCR cycle threshold of 40. And that’s why so many people seem to have covid-19.”
He is 100% correct of course. The test is worthless. As long as they continue to deploy them, they’ll find (false) positive cases, meaning more lockdowns. It’s a vicious cycle and it is doing more damage to our health than any virus could. Here in the UK they’re giving people hope today, by telling them that case numbers are falling. Of course they are. We are in the wickedly brutal third national lockdown, which means that they are not testing as many people. Eventually they’ll open up a little and in doing so will administer more PCR tests. At that point the case numbers will rise and it’s lockdown all over again. It’s psychological warfare.
