Dr. Thomas Cowan: How the PCR-test (not) works

  - 7:50

Thomas Cowan, MD, explains that the PCR-test is a surrogate test, not a real test. The PCR-test allows the tester to choose which level of viral load he/she will infer as the threshold for being 'infectious'. That is why many countries have lots of 'infectious cases' - the countries with a so-called 'casedemic' - while other countries have basically none - as the latter have chosen a more stringent rule on which PCR-test levels should be called 'infectious'. Thomas Cowan is a medical doctor and author of several books about medicine, including nutrition, anthroposophical medicine and herbal medicine. He is the author of Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, The Fourfold Path to Healing, and The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care. He has served as vice president of the Physicians Association for Anthroposophic Medicine and is founding board member of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

If you have any exposure, you will test positive. Most of us have been exposed. PCR was designed to diagnose what pathogen a patient was infected with based on symptoms. Being exposed, doesn't mean you're infected or even transmitting. Only presymptomatic individuals transmit, because the virus is replicating. I always ask people, do you get an influenza test when you're not sick?

Bet my bottom dollar that Sweden doesn't amplify their samples as high as Melbourne
