"Gold" Standard PCR Is Really "Dirt" Standard

Something we've known for about 6 months....

PCR tests, long hailed as the "gold standard" in detecting SARS-Cov-2 cases, will be dropped by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the beginning of next year. 

Polymerase chain reaction tests have been a mainstay of the U.S. and global response to COVID-19 since early in 2020, but health officials have warned the diagnostic tool poses a risk of false-positive  results....

Yes.  But CDC attempts to smear pure Bee Ess over the real reason!

 ..."Although the CDC 2019 Novel Coronavirus ... Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel met an important unmet need when it was developed and deployed and has not demonstrated any performance issues, the demand for this test has declined with the emergence of other higher-throughput and multiplexed assays," she said via email. ..;.

Not only "false positives."  The damn thing can't distinguish between Wuhan Flu and typical Influenza-A or -B.

It will take about 10 years for CDC to have credibility again, if ever.
