Keep those numbers rising and who’s gonna pay everyone’s Bill’s when can no work? Gotta be a better way than using an inaccurate testing system.
Here come more cases! The mayor has to find more reason to shut the island down. These tests don’t even actually test for this specific virus, but instead for traces of similar virus particles. There is a huge percentage of false positives. We have NO hospitalizations. These are all asymptomatic, if they were even real cases.
…what were the results?
Complete the story please.
All this testing using the PCR is feeding right in to Kawakami’s “I am the savior” shut-down mentality. The PCR is known to produce 80-90% false positives when the number of test cycles exceeds 33 amplifications. The politically motivated CDC and other government agencies have called for 40-45 cycles which guarantees the little tyrants, like Kawakami, will have all the excuse they need to further ruin people’s lives.
He, Kawakami, preaches the “I care about you little people” drivel, yet his action belie his rhetoric. If he did care he would not shut off the island for travelers just as the various industries and businesses were getting wobbly feet under them. And after only a handful of so called cases. Does he even comprehend what he has done? These businesses have spent millions of dollars ramping back up, only to be shut-down after several weeks. All for what are in all probability false positive test results. Now everyone is flocking to the test sites like frightened lemmings…even if they have absolutely no indication of illness.
This is a disaster for those least able to weather the storm. Of course Kawakami thinks he will have unending access to millions of federal dollars to bribe those he is trashing into thinking he really does care. But monetizing such massive levels of federal debt cannot go on forever…then Kawakami’s (all the political classes actually) false promises and delusions will be exposed for what they are…barbaric insanity.
Are you kidding me? Why go looking for a virus when there’s no symptoms? Just wanted to be included. Fine. How many infected new cases? This is a waste of energy though.
