This sounds really really fishy to me - COVID variant

| No Comments

From Business Insider:

You aren't legally allowed to know which variant gave you COVID-19 in the US, even if it's Delta
Sam Reider, a musician from San Francisco, got a call from the California Department of Public Health in June. Though fully vaccinated, Reider had recently tested positive for COVID-19 after teaching music at a summer camp. The health department asked him to take a second test at a local Kaiser Permanente.

Reider assumed it was because authorities wanted to find out whether he had a Delta infection. He, too, was curious — but when he got the test results back, he was surprised to learn that doctors couldn't give him any information about his variant.

"When I got the follow-up from Kaiser, they said it's positive, but they didn't have any of the sequencing information," Reider told Insider. That "felt odd to me," he said.

A bit more:

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS), which oversees the regulatory process for US labs, requires genome-sequencing tests to be federally approved before their results can be disclosed to doctors or patients. These are the tests that pick up on variants, but right now, there's little incentive for the labs to do the work to validate those tests.

So they do an initial test for any form of COVID and then do sequencing to determine the variant.  If sequencing is not being done, how the fsck do we have any accurate numbers for delta or Mu?  And what test are they using? PCR with it's known false-positive problem? How many cycles?  35?  More?

If this was a real pandemic, we would be getting 100% solid truth from the scientists.  99% of what we are getting is narrative and it changes day by day.  Ergo: This is not a real pandemic.
