The CDC quietly announced last week that it was withdrawing its request to the FDA for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the 2019-Novel Coronavirus PCR Diagnostic Panel for detection of SARS-CoV-2 (the name for the COVID-19 virus). It now recommends laboratories adopt a method that can detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 from influenza viruses. The US has used the PCR test to report more than 34.4-million cases of the COVID-19 since the pandemic began and more than 610,000 deaths. Covid cases based on this test soared nationwide while, at the same time, hospitalizations and deaths from the Flu dropped to near zero. There were only 646 deaths relating to the flu among adults reported in 2020, whereas in 2019 the CDC estimated that between 24,000 and 62,000 people died from influenza-related illnesses, according to Fox News. The CDC now recommends that laboratories start transitioning to other types of COVID-19 diagnostic tests that can test for both COVID-19 and the flu. -GEG

The CDC quietly announced last week that it was withdrawing its request to the FDA for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2.

Most of the public is probably unaware that similar to the current COVID-19 injections that are not yet approved by the FDA, but only given Emergency Use Authorization, so too the hundreds of diagnostic tests that supposedly detect COVID-19 are also NOT approved by the FDA, but only authorized via an EUA.

What is the reason the CDC is withdrawing its EUA request for the Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel?

In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test.

Caitlin McFall, writing for Fox News, is the only one in the corporate media I could find that even reported this, and the few reports I found in the Alternative media so far have been mostly inaccurate.

McFall reports:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) urged labs this week to stock clinics with kits that can test for both the coronavirus and the flu as the “influenza season” draws near.

The CDC said Wednesday it will withdrawal its request for the “Emergency Use Authorization” of real-time diagnostic testing kits, which were used starting in February 2020 to detect signs of the coronavirus, by the end of the year.

“CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives,” the agency said.

The U.S. has reported more than 34.4 million cases of the coronavirus since the pandemic began in 2020 and more than 610,000 deaths.

But while cases of COVID-19 soared nationwide, hospitalizations and deaths caused by influenza dropped.

According to data released by the CDC earlier this month, influenza mortality rates were significantly lower throughout 2020 than previous years.

There were 646 deaths relating to the flu among adults reported in 2020, whereas in 2019 the CDC estimated that between 24,000 and 62,000 people died from influenza-related illnesses.

The CDC urged laboratories to “save both time and resources” by introducing kits that can determine and distinguish a positive test for the coronavirus and flu. (Source.)

In September 2020, the New York Times reviewed PCR test data compiled by officials in Massachusetts, New York, and Nevada and determined that up to 90% of those testing positive carried either no virus or such a small amount as to be of no danger whatsoever.

I know that the RT-PCR test cannot be used to diagnose for infectious disease. COV-SAR-2 virus (which has NEVER been PROVEN even to exist, let alone the DELTA variant). The test inventor the late Kerry Mullis, MD won a Nobel Price in Medicine for inventing/developing the RT-PCR test. He said (while he was since alive, now deceased) that his test CANNOT be used to diagnose for infectious disease! It is ABOUT TIME that the RT-PCR be eliminated to test for COVID-19 and its’ variants, all of which I believe do nor exist. This is a PLAN-DEMIC or SKAM-DEMIC and certainly… Read more »

You got it right, although, Mullis got the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, not Medicine.

This whole thing is based on two things, the PCR that, as you correctly noted, is not a diagnostic, and the fact that viruses have never been proven to exist.

Or rather, INFECTIOUS viruses are not proven to exist; that is, being disease-causing absent any other possible illness cause.

Electron micrographs are proof that viruses exist – they are basically a photograph. You are being scammed and lied to.

Not only that but there is NO test that can differentiate between flu and the common cold – coronavirus is the cold. I got that from vi ro logist of many decades.

Hello Readers, My name is Ray Hayward and for some time I became suspicious of the figures being presented by the media while reporting a pandemic there was not one bit of evidence locally,I investigated the alleged deaths reported through our Registry of Births,Deaths and Marraiges going back to the year 2000 and while initially we had every year a number of deaths from Influenza and pnuemonia suddenly these deaths plummeted and where replaced by Covid deaths an analysis of these figures was showing that adding the two figures together the deaths from Covid and the lower deaths from the… Read more »

Virologists tell me flu and cold aren’t even remotely similar, they are very different. What’s really going on here?

viruses do not exist. the whole nature of disease has been a lie for about a century. Germ Theory is the underlying fraud.

Virologists are in a 70+ year bubble of convoluted methodology whereby they don’t even recognize that their methods are a fraud and prove nothing. See the work of Dr. Stephan Lanka.

Well, if any virologist will admit that viruses do not exist, then they end up without job/profession, right? Why would they agree with the idea that viruses do not exist and/or do not cause diseases?

‘PCR’….NO!!!
‘PCR’……NO!!!!
‘PCR’……NO!!!!!!!!
The INVENTOR, himself, stated that the PCR does NOT DETECT A VIRUS!
PERIOD……END of that discussion!

Thank you for the CDC link! Now, according to the CDC, the Covid-19 pandemic never happened. Are they going to say so in MSM? Or they’re going to carry their project till the supposed end of it on March 31, 2025?

To E. Grogan: The Sars-Cov-2 virus has never been isolated and cannot be proven to exist. The CDC and China have failed to produce the virus (which is really an exosome). Explain that!!

Here is the link for the FactCheck “debunking”: https://www.factcheck.org/2021/07/scicheck-viral-posts-misrepresent-cdc-announcement-on-covid-19-pcr-test/ FactCheck.org tried to debunk the story by splitting hairs: the CDC made no overt admission that the PCR test is garbage, but they said that they will withdraw their request for the “Emergency Use Authorization”. This implies the PCR test will no longer be officially recognized if authorization is removed. The CDC’s document says: “CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses.” This implies that the PCR is incapable of differentiating between Covid and the flu.

If the PCR test for CoVid-19 is not diagnostic, then we are in a big mess. However, the number of deaths in 2020-21 still looks astronomical, even if some of these were due to the regular non-CoVid-19 flu. Where do we go from here?

Some super-honest, super-careful, super-detailed, super-thorough, super-trustworthy scientist (or better yet, three to five of them working together) should perform whatever tests are necessary to answer these basic questions PRECISELY once and for all. Because there certainly does seem to AT LEAST be some sloppiness in the definitions and meanings and certainty and scope and extent of these issues. My guess is, various bacteria do exist and each claimed antibiotic is effective at killing one or more of them. When it comes to virus, the questions seem MANY and the precision seems SLOPPY or VAGUE. Yup, such a group should create… Read more »
