WHO warns that PCR COVID tests are more likely to give false positives
The notice was issued only one hour after President Joe Biden was sworn into office, leading some observers to question the timing of the release. The World Health Organization issued a notice on Wednesday warning medical professionals to follow instructions of PCR tests for coronavirus to avoid getting false positive results. The notice was released only one hour after President Joe Biden was sworn into office, leading some observers to question the timing of the release. If the PCR tests are resulting in false-positives, and that information is now used to mitigate the large positivity numbers, the number of case counts will begin to drop.
The optics of a decreasing COVID-case count would be a boon for the launch of the Biden administration. Literally one hour after Biden takes the oath, the WHO admits that PCR testing at high amplification rates alters the predictive value of the tests and results in a huge number of false positives pic. If many of those cases were established as extant with the help of PCR tests that were resulting in false-positives, that would mean that the case count for which Trump was criticized was not a factual number. A number of supporters of Donald Trump have alleged that the impact of the coronavirus pandemic is being exaggerated for the purpose of damaging his reputation in the lead-up to the 2020 election and the subsequent inauguration of Joe Biden.
The WHO in particular has faced the ire of supporters of Donald Trump, who have alleged the organization has been corrupted by the government of China. When he returned, he attempted again to avoid the question before talking about China. China does not recognize the sovereignty of Taiwan and believes it to be a part of China. President Joe Biden promised during his presidential campaign that he would rejoin the WHO, and intended to do that on his first day in office.
