COVID Cases Plummet After WHO Changes Testing Protocol on Biden’s Inauguration Day

By: The Daily Grind

Days after the World Health Organization changed the protocol for confirming a positive COVID-19 test, the number of positive cases across the world have dropped dramatically, leaving the mainstream media confused anding people to suggest that the timing of the change in testing protocol was political. 

On January 20, the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration and entrance into the White House, the World Health Organization (WHO) quietly issued new guidance on the manner in which polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests were to be conducted and reported. It warned against reporting someone as having COVID-19, just because the test had been positive, when they did not actually present with any symptoms. The WHO also raised concerns about the “risk of false positive” tests.

The Details

In a surprising statement, the WHO described PCR tests merely as an “aid for diagnosis” without placing any greater weight upon the results of PCR tests, pointing the testers to examine real life evidence, such as symptoms. 

“Most PCR assays are indicated as an aid for diagnosis, therefore, health care providers must consider any result in combination with timing of sampling, specimen type, assay specifics, clinical observations, patient history, confirmed status of any contacts, and epidemiological information,” the WHO stated.

Reporting on the news at the time, theU.K. based website Lockdown Sceptics, wrote that the news vindicated the warnings of likeminded “sceptics,” who had been “ridiculed for questioning the accuracy of the PCR test, referring to the risk of false positives when prevalence is low and urging the Government to carry out confirmatory second tests on those that test positive.”

The WHO’s new guidance conformed to the longstanding wishes ofthose critical of the excessive dependence on the results of PCR tests on forming government policy, as the directive stated that “a new specimen should be taken and retested” and further stipulates that “health care” workers should weigh up the test result alongside real-world information, such as symptoms or “clinical observations,” and contact with any other infected individuals.

At the time, a number of commentators pointed to the politicized timing of the WHO’s news, suggesting that it would be a help to Biden’s response to COVID-19, most likely reducing the number of cases reported, as he began his time in office. 

It could also be seen as an act to mutually benefit both Biden and the WHO, since Biden came to the White House as an ally of the WHO, whilst Trump had began the process to withdraw from the WHO last summer after denouncing the organization as being “China centric.” The WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also expressed his own delight at Biden’s recent inauguration.

Just a number of days after the WHO’s note, the media reported that COVID cases were dropping in what has been described as a “plunge,” leaving the “experts” confused as to the reason why. Reports have noted that cases, along with deaths and hospitalisations, have dropped “precipitously in the United States in the last several weeks.” 

On January 14, The Covid Tracking Project (CTP) wrote that for the week just ended, “deaths are 25 percent higher than any other week since the pandemic began.” In the next weeks’report on January 21, the CTP wrote that weekly new cases were “down 20 percent,” with the same trend the next week with a “17 percent” drop in cases compared to the previous week. 

The CTP report issued on February 4 had a marked difference in tone compared to its January 14 report, saying that “weekly new cases were down more than 16 percent over the previous week.”

WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in not a medical doctor but likes to give that umpression, like Jill Biden does.
