@Foneguy89 fake news

the CDC is not "lowering the CT from 42 to 28"

they are conflating one small study with testing in general

@vandys @Foneguy89 its been discussed ad nauseum. look at the cdcs actual press release where they explicitly say they are requesting genetic sequencing samples for a select break throush study be below 28 (to eliminate false positives in their study)

nowhere are people who test positive getting different CTs based on vaccination status. you can look up all the current IFUs for the tests under EUA at the FDA site. look at my sticky toots for the link

@Foneguy89 @vandys

again, nonsense speculation. at least this article walked it back a bit with their clarificaton, but at its root, its still misinformation


I would agree with this statement within the pdf:

“Had a CT of 28 been used all along, we would have had nowhere near the number of "cases" currently touted and the pandemic would have been declared over sometime in 2020. Conversely, were a CT of 40 or higher used to diagnose breakthrough cases, you can be sure the numbers would be far higher than currently reported.”

@Foneguy89 the first sentence is obvious. the second sentence is still wrong.

@Foneguy89 more relevant to lower 'case' numbers is the misinformation they spread that the vaccine reduces your chance of getting or spreading covid. many people who are vaccianted think they are "immune" and test less

many people who are not vaccinated are forced to test to be compliant in lieu of a vax.

that alone skews the numbers pretty substantially


PCR tests on vaccinated and unvaccinated people are evaluated using the same criteria; the CDC didn’t change criteria for detecting infection in vaccinated people, as alleged in OffGuardian article healthfeedback.org/claimreview via @HealthFeedback
