1) The main potential problem with SARS-CoV-2 testing is that we are not even certain the RNA used for the test comes from the virus and that COVID-19 is a disease caused by SARS-CoV-2.

Disclosure - I am a Deregistered Doctor.

2) The reason for this is that austere scientists such as James Hidrith and Stephen Bustin do not think Koch’s Postulates have been met.

These postulates are the criteria required to prove a disease originates from a causative pathogen.
3) There simply is not enough proof yet that the constellation of symptoms being observed is actually a result of SARS-CoV-2 or something else such as influenza etc etc.

Similarly, the RNA used in the testing could be based on another virus or even endogenous exosomes.
4) David Crowe has simplified the complex RT-PCR test in the following two articles.

Essentially the test is not an all or nothing result and is at best just a continuum producing many false positives.
5) Here are David’s musings and also his analysis of the RT-PCR test:……
6) Factor in the sampling errors from poor technique leading to insufficient nasal aspirate means the whole process has many pitfalls.

Also consider the political reassignment of co-morbid deaths to COVID-19 and even more errors occur.
7) The Democrats are pushing for whole population testing which will make this crisis self-perpetuating and neverending.

Hopefully a Gold Standard Test with purification/isolation of SARS-CoV-2 can be made which proves Koch’s postulates.
8) Until then we have many unanswered questions and no reason to extend this charade.

Indeed reopening up our economy appears the least risky option at hand.

Would appreciate Peer Review/comments ...
