When Did CDC Know Their Approved COVID-19 Tests, Faulty PCR Testing Would Make Case and Death Data Unreliable?

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to come under fire for changing positions on masking and a lack of transparency surrounding adverse effects of COVID-19 vaccines, new concerns about the agency’s guidance over PCR tests has prompted America’s Frontline Doctors to consider filing a Freedom of Information Request.

The CDC’s July 21st statement (Lab Alert: Changes to CDC RT-PCR for SARS CoV-2 Testing) has raised serious concerns about the reliability of the approved PCR testing regime. The official CDC statement says in part, “CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses…” This assertion would seem to indicate that the current generation of PCR tests do not reliably distinguish COVID from influenza, or other viral diseases. Such reliability issues would call into question data regarding cases upon which lockdowns and other government mandates have been based since the beginning of the pandemic.

AFLDS Communications Director, Dr. Teryn Clarke stated,

“This constitutes an extremely damaging lapse. If PCR testing cannot distinguish between COVID and influenza, then at least a portion of last winter’s COVID spike was likely to have been due to the normal flu season. Is this reason influenza all but “disappeared” during COVID? The CDC’s lack of transparency regarding the limitations of the PCR test caused severe and irreversible harm worldwide.”

The AFLDS Legal Team is considering options to force government transparency.

Dr. Simone Gold, founder of AFLDS added,

“The entire pandemic has been based on PCR testing– to identify cases, justify lockdowns and to ascribe cause of death. Now the CDC is saying these COVID “cases” might actually have been influenza cases? It is absolutely essential these tests are accurate, reliable, and validated. The public has a right to know how the CDC made the decision to recommend that the public rely on this test. Anything less than full transparency is tantamount to an admission that CDC manipulated data and intentionally or through incompetence misled the public.”
