NBA to Disregard PCR ‘Positives’ Above 30 Cycles
Only 2 years too late
wow, if only there had been a group of people who had known about these issues 2 years ago to tell us that a positive result over ~28-30 cycle threshold on a PCR test is almost 100% non-clinical and that running them at 40, over 1000X the amplification of 30, would result in monstrous overcounting of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths…
what a difference that might have made.
shame there wasn’t…
ESPN Sources: The NBA and NBPA have agreed on new protocols that would allow Covid-positive players to clear isolation after five days if “CT values” are above 30. That lowers threshold from seven days and CT values above 35.

“the science™” sure is changing rapidly all of a sudden.
at this rate, in a couple of weeks, we’ll be back to where we were in 2019 and realize that none of this testing is needed at all…

Even 30 is too high. Someone I know who works with PCR regularly says even 25 cycles are suspect.
Any pathogen can easily be present in your airway and probably is but that does NOT indicate illness.
Yes. I agree. Did they ever get a pure std isolated for calibration. I read that when it first came out it was calibrated to the original SARS 1.
“wow, if only there had been a group of people who had known about these issues 2 years ago to tell us that a positive result over ~28-30 cycle threshold on a PCR test is almost 100% non-clinical…”
There was,,,,, The inventor Kary Mullis said the PCR was not to be used for diagnosis… period.
And still,,, it is used exactly for that. And people wonder why I drink…
and yes,,, I note the sarcasm in the article.
Kary also said not to use more than 20 CTs because of increased false positives.
The timing of Dr Mullis’ death was very convenient.
Just because you found a trace of dog shit on my shoe doesn’t mean I own a dog 🤷♂️
Wrong. You own several dogs by now. You need to put out poisoned meat, a wireless dog fence around your property and call animal control immediately or you will be up to your neck in dogs and dog shjt.
doG help us all!
The PCR test has been withdrawn – as bogus.
This was known from the onset.
