CLAIMS SHARED ON social media have suggested that the scientist who created PCR testing, a method used internationally to detect Covid-19, said that the tests could not be used to accurately identify Covid-19 and viruses like it.
Additionally, many of these posts have claimed that PCR testing returns a high number of false positives in a way that has inaccurately inflated the number of people diagnosed with Covid-19.
The claims first emerged months ago in other countries and have surfaced in Ireland in recent weeks.
There are a few variants on the claim, but all of them make some reference to Kary Mullis, the American biochemist who created the PCR test, and suggest that he said the tests were not suitable for testing for viruses or Covid-19.
PCR tests are used in Ireland and many other countries, and involve taking a swab from someone’s throat and nose and then using PCR – polymerase chain reaction – to detect the genetic material of the virus that causes Covid-19.
A virus is a “small collection of genetic code, either DNA or RNA, surrounded by a protein coat”.
Viruses, which are unable to replicate alone, infect other cells and use components of the host cell to make copies of themselves, which is how they increase in number.
Different versions of the claim suggest that Mullis said that PCR tests:
- Could be used to find “anything in anybody”
- Should not be used to test for viruses or infectious diseases
- Should not be used to test for Covid-19
A Facebook post making the claim in Ireland shared on 14 October, for example, attributed the following quote to Mullis, who the post describes as the “PCR Covid (fake) test inventor”:
“With PCR if you can do it well you can find almost anything in anybody.”
An image in the post includes another quote that it attributes to Mullis: “PCR test cannot accurately test for infectious diseases… Test cannot detect free infectious viruses.”
The post then says: “This is the ‘test’ that is being used to produce the ‘cases’ to justify fascistic lockdown by finding anything in anybody – and they know it.”
The post has been shared 111 times and received 134 likes and 43 comments.
Another Facebook post, which has been shared 104 times, said that Mullins was the “inventor of the PCR Covid test” and that it was “not made to detect any kind of infectious disease. It’s just there to pick up a signature of your DNA and RNA”.
A post shared on a Facebook page on 24 November, which has been viewed over 15,000 times, said:
The people behind this plandemic knew that to maintain the constant fear they got to keep the cases high, so they decided to use the PCR test, “Kary Mullis” himself stated it can’t be used to detect covid19 and will test positive for anything if you increase its test frequency.
The claims have been made in multiple countries in different languages.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehaviour acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
