COVID-19 is a phony pandemic. There is no coronavirus pandemic. It only exists because of a fraudulent PCR test. Outlaw the test and the pandemic disappears.
Short Bio – David William Rasnick, PhD is an American biochemist with over 40 years experience, 20 years in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. He has worked on emphysema, arthritis, parasites, cancer and AIDS. He is known for his leadership of the AIDS dissident movement, which disputes HIV is the cause of AIDS. He was an advisor to President Thabo Mbeki of South Africa and member of the Presidential AIDS Advisory Panel in 2000. He has 42 scientific publications and two published books: The Chromosomal Imbalance Theory of Cancer: Autocatalyzed Progression of Aneuploidy is Carcinogenesis (2012) for researchers (Published by Science Publishers, marketed and distributed by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group, ISBN 978-1-57808-737-2) and the 2008 novel Germ of Lies (self-published through LuLu.com, ISBN-13: 978-0615251288).
Using a PCR test to terrorize billions of people, shut down the world, destroy economies and tens to millions of jobs isn’t just scientific/medical misconduct, it is a crime against humanity. Training children to accept enslavement in a totalitarian world is even more abominable.
Before addressing your questions, here is some essential background.
“On 31 December 2019, the WHO China Country Office was informed of cases of pneumonia [of] unknown etiology (unknown cause) detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province of China. From 31 December 2019 through 3 January 2020, a total of 44 case-patients with pneumonia of unknown etiology were reported to WHO by the national authorities in China. During this reported period, the causal agent was not identified.” (1)
However, just 4 days later, China declared that a “new type of coronavirus” was the cause. Five days after that, on January 12, China shared the genetic sequence with other countries to use in developing specific diagnostic kits. About a month later, China had the capacity to perform 35,000 genetic tests per day.
The first question I had was why go to all that trouble for only 44 cases of pneumonia? China has over 1 million pneumonia cases every year. Pneumonia can be caused by exposure to many things such as chemicals, chronic drug use, chemotherapy, and malnutrition which then makes people susceptible to bacteria and viruses. Just being old is a risk of developing pneumonia. We simply don’t know what caused pneumonia in Wuhan City. The causes may have been different for different individuals.
Second, going from a handful of pneumonia cases to identifying a new viral cause, followed by a “specific” genetic test in a little over a month could not possibly satisfy even minimal scientific standards. It is very difficult and time consuming to definitively prove the existence of a ‘new’ virus as well as proving that it causes the specific symptoms characteristic of a supposedly new disease.
I wasn’t the only skeptic. In mid January, two Chinese and an America colleague were not convinced (2).
“The facts can be argued,” they said, “particularly regarding causality despite these facts having been officially announced.”
“The data collected so far is not enough to confirm the causal relationship between the new type coronavirus and the respiratory disease. The viral-specific nucleic acids were only discovered in 15 patients.”
Even for truly contagious diseases, it’s very difficult to sort out which—if any—of the hundreds of trillions of viruses and bacteria (3) present in each of us, is THE cause of a specific disease. This is why vigorous scientific standards and methods must be used to determine what actually causes a disease or pathology.
The fatal error with using PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) tests for viral infections is that the results of the tests have not been scientifically validated by comparison with the authentic virus. In order to prove that a specific virus causes a specific disease, it is essential to capture from the host a disease-causing virus completely intact, free from all other infectious agents and artifacts that can be misleading. It is essential that this same virus be purified from the host by independent researchers as confirmation. This has not been done for COVID-19.
PCR can amplify ANY, otherwise undetectable, small segment of RNA or DNA sequence. It is a serious mistake to declare that detecting these small segments of genetic material is equivalent to detecting actual virus (4). In fact, if PCR is the only way to detect a virus, this is strong evidence that the virus is not the cause of the disease.
PCR tests for specific RNA viruses are currently not feasible for a number of reasons but primarily because the genetic sequences of these viruses are very unstable. In order to get around this problem, the tests search for small, relatively stable sequences of RNA that are common to ALL members of a viral family. At best these tests might be specific for a viral family but not for a specific member, as is claimed for COVID-19. But even then, the results are meaningless until it has been conclusively demonstrated that the PCR test results correlate with the presence of ACTUAL virus in human samples.
May 12, 2020, Jessica Watson stated in the British Medical Journal:
“No test gives a 100% accurate result; tests need to be evaluated to determine their sensitivity [percent of positives that are true positives] and specificity [percent of negatives that are true negatives], ideally by comparison with a ‘gold standard.’ The lack of such a clear-cut ‘gold-standard’ for covid-19 testing makes evaluation of test accuracy challenging.” (5)
The gold standards in virology are electron microscopy of human tissues for the presence of actual viral particles and laboratory culturing of pure replicating virus from the same tissues.
The PCR tests are called surrogate markers because they do not detect actual virus, but are hoped to highly correlate with the presence of actual virus. A surrogate marker has meaning only after its accuracy has been determined by comparison with the gold standard methods under real world conditions.
For example, license plates are surrogate markers for motor vehicles. If someone walks in with a box of say 100 license plates, a reasonable assumption is that they came from a 100 vehicles. It is not reasonable to assume what type of vehicle correlates with each license plate. It is not reasonable to assume that the license plates correlate with functioning vehicles. Obviously more information is required for accurate results.
The gold standard comparison in this example is to see how well the vehicles corresponding to the 100 license plates actually operate. You may find a correlation anywhere from 0–100%.
If you learn that the license plates all came from a used car dealer, it is reasonable to assume there is a good correlation between the license plates and vehicles you can actually drive off the lot. Conversely, if the license plates come from a junk yard, you can expect a zero correlation with functioning vehicles.
To the best of my knowledge, the surrogate markers for HIV (antibody tests, western blot, PCR viral load) were the first tests for a virus holding political significance that FAILED gold standard confirmation. HIV set the precedent for suspending gold standard confirmation of surrogate markers for other viruses of political significance—which includes COVID-19.
The World Health Organization’s unprecedented rush orchestrated the poor quality work that created the COVID-19 “pandemic.” Early April 2020, two papers reported that electron microscopy had detected coronavirus particles “in the setting of COVID-19”—reminiscent of the “setting of HIV.”
In the first paper, 6 of 26 Chinese who died of COVID-19 were reported to have coronavirus particles in their kidneys (6). In the second paper, a 63-year-old black man in Switzerland, who tested negative for the virus, was reported to have coronavirus particles in his kidneys (7). May 8, 2020, Sara Miller and her colleague John Brealey disputed the claims in both studies (8).
When I started an electron microscopy company called Viral Forensics I soon became very familiar with the work of electron microscopist Sara Miller. It was essential that I did because she is an authority of great renown on electron microscopic detection and identification of viruses.
Sara Miller’s short article (8) demolished the electron microscopy part of the two studies (6,7):
“We read with concern the articles that report the presence of coronavirus in kidney based on electron microscopic evidence. Neither article, in fact, demonstrates the presence of coronavirus in the kidney.”
The lack of gold standard confirmation means the reliability of the PCR tests is highly questionable. Indeed, in March 2020, Zhuang Guihua and colleagues reported that 80% of positive test results were wrong (9). The authors recommend against PCR screening “even for those who are in close contact with a confirmed case.” Let’s address what is meant by “a confirmed case.”
There are two reasons why it is not possible to measure the reliability of the tests for COVID-19. As we have seen, the first and most telling reason is the fact that no unique virus has been proved to cause COVID-19. The CDC itself provides the second and perhaps most disturbing reason.
According to the CDC, both COVID-19 and FLU have the same symptoms and complications (10).
• Muscle aches
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Sore throat
• Runny or stuffy nose
• Respiratory failure
• Acute respiratory distress syndrome
• Cardiac injury (e.g. heart attacks and stroke)
• Multiple-organ failure (respiratory failure, kidney failure, shock)
• Worsening of chronic medical conditions (involving the lungs, heart, nervous system or diabetes)
• Inflammation of the heart, brain or muscle tissues
• Secondary bacterial infections
If you have the FLU and don’t test positive for COVID-19, it is just the FLU. Conversely, if you test positive to the PCR test, you become a COVID-19 statistic, regardless of whether or not you have any symptoms.
“It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each other and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pre totalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition.”
