As of right now, we’re beginning to see a lot of new cases of coronavirus conveniently popping up in states across the country, especially in states that are trying to reopen their economies and get back to normal before a massive collapse happens that sends our nation into a death spiral of anarchy and mayhem.
Oh. Wait. Black Lives Matter and their “large gatherings” they claim are to protest injustice and police brutality, have already done that, haven’t they? No doubt a significant portion of these new cases are coming from these events, but the media will refuse to say so because they don’t want to be labeled “racist.”
A new report has revealed, however, that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is actually conflating the results of two different kinds of coronavirus tests and distorting metrics that are giving many states around the country an inaccurate portrait of the pandemic.
This stuff is really getting old. Really, really old.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
The CDC is over counting the number of China coronavirus cases in an apparent effort to keep the country shut down throughout the summer. This fraudulent activity was uncovered by the far-left Atlantic proving even a dead clock is right twice a day.
On May 21, 2020, the Atlantic reported that the CDC was over counting the number of cases of individuals with the China coronavirus:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is conflating the results of two different types of coronavirus tests, distorting several important metrics and providing the country with an inaccurate picture of the state of the pandemic. We’ve learned that the CDC is making, at best, a debilitating mistake: combining test results that diagnose current coronavirus infections with test results that measure whether someone has ever had the virus. The upshot is that the government’s disease-fighting agency is overstating the country’s ability to test people who are sick with COVID-19. The agency confirmed to The Atlantic on Wednesday that it is mixing the results of viral and antibody tests, even though the two tests reveal different information and are used for different reasons.
This is not merely a technical error. States have set quantitative guidelines for reopening their economies based on these flawed data points.
Several states—including Pennsylvania, the site of one of the country’s largest outbreaks, as well as Texas, Georgia, and Vermont—are blending the data in the same way. Virginia likewise mixed viral and antibody test results until last week, but it reversed course and the governor apologized for the practice after it was covered by the Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Atlantic. Maine similarly separated its data on Wednesday; Vermont authorities claimed they didn’t even know they were doing this.
By including both active cases with cases of individuals who had the China coronavirus in the past, the CDC is grossly overstating the number of active cases in the US. Unfortunately, states like Texas and Florida have reset their economic reopening time tables based on this bogus data.
Apparently the CDC is still co-mingling these results. Forbes reported last week:
A report released Thursday from the Government Accountability Office levied criticism at the CDC for combining active cases of the coronavirus and positive antibody tests, which may give a misleading view of nationwide testing and spread.
So why in the world would the CDC do something like this? Well, there are a lot of reasons the Deep State would want to fudge the numbers on this and end up causing an economic collapse. Front and center is the fact that such a collapse would destroy President Trump’s chances of getting reelected come November.
Secondly, this would open up the door for the government to justify shoving through all kinds of socialistic measures and restructure our country, taking away power from states and individuals, placing it in the hands of the “elite” within the Deep State and beyond.
It sounds nefarious, right?
That’s because it is. We know this is what progressives want. They’ve never been shy about it. What do you think they mean when they say “never let a good crisis go to waste?”
The far-left New York Times also reported last week on the GAO’s report:
The report also criticized the C.D.C.’s counting of coronavirus tests, which combines tests for an active infection and those that detect antibodies. This practice inflates the percentage of Americans that appear to have been tested and gives an unreliable picture of the way the virus is spreading around the country, according to the new report. After the C.D.C. was criticized last month for combining the two types of tests in its reports, the agency promised to separate them. But as of June 9, it had still not resolved the issue, the office reported.
The CDC’s method of reporting the number of active cases is totally flawed. It is fraudulent. The CDC counts individuals who show that they had the China coronavirus in their counts of individuals who are identified currently with the virus. This data is then used by states to determine whether to open our shut down their economies.
At this point, you have to wonder if there’s a single thing we’ve been told about this virus that’s the actual truth. Is the whole thing being blown up out of proportion just to give the government some additional fodder to use against Trump in an election? Is the Deep State really that evil?
The obvious answer is yes. Whether that’s what’s actually happening right now is anyone’s guess.
