A bombshell dropped this week – video surfaced of Dr Tony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), saying PCR tests that give a positive result at 35 cycles or more do NOT show a person is infected. He explains such test results are only detecting dead nucleotides, at most.
What is now sort of evolving into a bit of a standard, that if you get a cycle threshold of 35 or more that the chances of it being replication competent are minuscule […] but you never, you almost never can culture virus from a 37 threshold cycle, so I think if someone does come in with 37, 38, even 36, you gotta say you know, it’s just dead nucleotides, period.
