If the pandemic gives one unlimited CTRL-P on the money machine, what could one do to keep it going and increase their power over society?

Since woke favors emotion over results, nearly anything can be justified.
One could easily lambast those who question C19 screening fidelity at the border as xenophobic and racist.

I personally celebrate more migrants filling the shoes of the stimmy check couch potatoes.

I’m not a border person.

But when I see these two headlines same day..
It’s seems those in power have these polarized pandemic clans under their perfect control.

Stoke the xenophobia/border folks with covid leaks while choking their freedom of movement in the same stroke.

And team panic will cheer the whole shitshow power grab on.
“If you are afraid of Mexican Covid, just take your TSA jab , you racist”.

Ivermectin is OTC in Mexico for $7.

Maybe if they all bring some over we can put an end to this.

Vaccine passports for concerts.
Does the science line up with this widespread panic?
@phish @WidespreadPanic @deadandcompany
This is what musicians are discriminating on.

Note, the Ct values of the vax Vs unvax are the same.
Viability isn’t different
Symptom onset identical Image
Their is no scientific basis for demanding a vax passport.

There is increased risk of adverse vax events for people who are already immune, taking the vaccine to comply to this coercion.

PCR testing is expensive and falsely quarantines 4/5 people.

Viability PCR exists.
Why is it not being utilized in C19?

What is Viability PCR?
Aka Capsid Integrity PCR.

It’s a method for only amplifying RNA that is inside a viral capsid.

Seems important for C19 given all the concerns over PCR Vs infectiousness. Image
There are several techniques which achieve this. The use of intercalating dyes is perhaps the oldest.
These dyes bind to free floating DNA or RNA and cross link it under UV.
Cross linked DNA/RNA doesn’t amplify.

DNA/RNA protected by a capsid is left unaffected. Image
So why isn’t the testing industry all over this?
It’s well known that your infectious window is 7 days and you can be PCR posture for over 30 days.
5X more people are positive if you don’t do this.

Viral load up 250 fold for delta variants in the vaccinated.

Does anti-spike selective pressure drive escape variants?

The good news is all patient outcomes were uneventful.

Curious to know the Ct values of natural immunity plus delta variant.

The argument for boosters is based on neutralizing antibodies which seem irrelevant in this study.
Paper uses the term Viral Load but doesn’t really have one.
This PCR kit doesn’t have an internal control. There is no delta-delta qPCR.
Just a Drosten like E-gene PCR compared to a standard curve.

They should have a human Ct signal to normalize for the NP swab for a load. Image

Anyone want to guess what’s wrong with this paper?

It’s making the rounds as some reason to wear masks. academic.oup.com/cid/advance-ar…
Here is one hint.
They target the N gene which is the highest copy subgenomic RNA in the genome.
SgRNA isn’t infectious.

N numbers are tiny.
