We all know Pfizer as the big pharmaceutical company that has given us Viagra.
Now, its former Chief Science Officer is giving us the truth.
According to Dr. Mike Yeadon, half or even “almost all” of tests for Covid are false positives. Besides, he added in a recent interview, the threshold for herd immunity may be much lower than previously thought, and many countries may have reached it long time ago.
Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer on Great Britain’s talkRADIO, Dr Yeadon said the Government are “using a test with an undeclared false positive rate. That’s dreadful. If you don’t know what it is – shame on you.”
All who have tested positive for coronavirus should be tested again, Dr. Yeadon said: the idea is to eliminate the possibility of the test showing a false positive result.
“Were it not for the test data that you get from the TV all the time, you would rightly conclude that the pandemic was over, as nothing much has happened,” Dr. Yeadon added. “Of course, people go to the hospital, moving into the autumn flu season … but there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.”
While media messaging (especially of the mainstream kind) is already announcing expectations of a “second wave,” the survival rate of Covid-19 has been upgraded since May to 99.8 per cent of infections. In ordinary flu, the survival rate is 99.9 per cent. Covid can have serious after-effects. So can flu or any respiratory illness.
As Dr. Yeadon pointed out, the “novel” Covid-19 contagion is novel only in the sense that it is a new type of coronavirus. But, he said, there are presently four strains which circulate freely throughout the population, most often linked to the common cold.
Any “second wave” of Covid, and any government case for lockdowns, given the well-known principles of epidemiology, will be entirely manufactured, Dr. Yeadon explained.
In Boston this month, a lab suspended doing coronavirus testing after 400 false positives were discovered.
According to an analysis of PCR-based test shown on medical website medrxiv.org, “Data on PCR-based tests for similar viruses show that PCR-based testing produces enough false positive results to make positive results highly unreliable over a broad range of real-world scenarios.”
University of Oxford Professor Carl Heneghan, Director of Oxford’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, wrote in an article How Many Covid Diagnoses Are False Positives? that “going off current testing practices and results, Covid-19 might never be shown to disappear.”
The Tanzanian fiasco
It is also telling that the government of Sweden discovered that 3,700 false Covid positives have come from test kits made by China’s BGI Genomics. The kits were approved in March by the FDA for use in the U.S.
It’s not true, either, Dr. Yeadon said, to claim that all pandemics come in subsequent waves. Yes, the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918 did come in successive waves during World War I, but this was an entirely different kind of virus, not in the coronavirus family, Dr. Yeadon pointed out. Besides, general early century malnutrition and unsanitary conditions, played a role, too, together with the fact that World War I soldiers, hard hit, lived in cold mud and conditions the worst imaginable for immune resistance.
And lockdowns make no sense, either: “The shape of the deaths vs. time curve implies a natural process and not one resulting mainly from human interventions. Famously, Sweden has adopted an almost laissez faire approach, with qualified advice given, but no generalised lockdowns. Yet its profile and that of the U.K.’s is very similar,” Dr. Yeadon added.
Here’s who’s been talking: Dr. Yeadon founded a biotech company which was later acquired by Novartis, another pharmaceutical giant. He ran the Asthma and Respiratory Research Unit at Pfizer.
