I normally enjoy your posts, but you clearly missed this part of the article (or didn't read it):

 

 

 

 

Is it fake news then? Or is it news that is inconvenient to a narrative that you want to push?

but did he die?

"Not a false positive" -- according to some reporter from Fox Sports?  Surely a medical professional to make such a claim.  So the team let a verifiably visibly ill player around the team and into the game?

So are you trusting the scientific community which developed the COVID test, or do you trust Fox, which is a pro-Trump network? It seems you trust neither.

Because, y'know, death of the incumbent is the ONLY measure of the impact from getting this infection... :picard:

 

 

I can't believe how stupid people are. Like these are ordinary people spewing out some really stupid positions. I don't claim to be enlightened, but having the decency to be responsible is one of many things people lack, because they don't want to believe COVID.

 

If I have a cold of any sort, regardless of COVID or not, I don't question a diagnosis. I stay the &^@# home so I don't spread anything.

As above, listen to the INVENTOR of the test.

 

I do my own research and don't simply believe what the TV tells me, let alone politicians or their operatives like Fauci and Tam who continually contradict themselves.

PCR test inventor Kary Mullis:

 


 

So wouldn't the responsible thing be to isolate yourself then? You're dodging the point.

Actually, I think I already know your answer. You won't isolate or take any precautions because you don't care about what happens to other people. Can you guarantee that you don't transfer the virus?

 

If not, then you are being reckless.

Each person that I have talked to about this, yeah, it doesn't end well for them. I'm actually curious what your research has come up with so far.

 

What are your opinions of COVID, and how it's being transmitted? Most importantly, how are you determining these results? (i.e. what is your scientific method? Statistics)

 

Doing your own research doesn't mean  "Well, someone else is doing my research for me."

 

Otherwise you are cherrypicking information.

Fake news.

 

Is the guy even sick or showing any signs of illness?  No, it was just a "test", which means absolutely nothing.  The PCR test is notoriously unreliable, yielding 89-94% false positives because it wasn't even designed for that purpose and thereby has zero correlation to whether someone is infected or contagious, let alone symptomatic.

 

This ignorance, insanity, and fear-porn simply has to stop.

Agreed.  100%.  The Governors here in the states using this boogeyman virus as an excuse to give orders that are not granted to them by the US Constitution is blatant tyranny.  The fact that LE are following these orders and breaking the oath they swore to uphold makes me sick to my stomach.

Pretty sure Ken Rosenthal is one of the most respected baseball writers out there.

 

Did you do your own research on that?

Lol, and what do they gain out of this? Certainly their country suffers because of an economic closure due to a COVID crisis, which affects their voting base.

 

200,000+ people have died due to COVID in your country and not one mention of it in your post, but the very mention of tyranny is at the center of your post.

Your country is screwed beyond belief because of people like you.

I'd really like to know how many Dodgers and people connected with the team come down with Covid in the next couple of weeks. 

This could be a great teaching moment for American Covidiots.

227K deaths, if they haven't learn by now, I don't think that will change anything.

Dodging what point?  The tests are PROVEN irrelevant and pointless, and the guy in question isn't even ill, same as most that take it.  Did you even watch the video?  Are you interested in facts, or just emoting and maintaining a level of fear and angst?

Instead of name-calling, telling people what you think they believe, and falsely projecting their intentions, turn the TV off and do some (any?) real research ON YOUR OWN.  Listen to what Mullis said, and understand what he said.  The "test" simply identifies fragments of RNA, and has nothing to do with indicating if someone is infected, contagious, or even ill.

PROVEN?

 

Did Mullis himself talk about Covid specifically? Because if you did ANY research on him, you'd realize he died in August 2019. Furthermore, he himself said that the PCR test cannot be misused. (It's in the video)

 

Now, what you've PROVEN to me is that you've taken something completely unrelated to COVID (Covid was first reported as early as December 2019), and tried to make a point about PCR/Covid.

 

Nice "research" there.

 

Also, check this out: https://in.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-pcr/fact-check-inventor-of-method-used-to-test-for-covid-19-didnt-say-it-cant-be-used-in-virus-detection-idUSKBN24420X

 

Yeah, it looks like you don't actually know what you're talking about @Gaudette Celly

Yeah, but fortunately in Michigan the courts ruled their governor had far over-stepped her bounds in mandating all the lockdowns and tyranny upon her state.  It's no different here, btw -- they instill unelected medical people as dictators, creating and enforcing mandates by fiat outside of the legislature, which is tyranny by definition.  But most people don't care and cannot even see what's happening.  Sad fact is they love fear and tyranny, and are going to continue to get it, good and hard.

Holy crap dude.

 

You have 227,000 + deaths due to COVID. I'd like to hear their thoughts about them "not caring" about COVID.

So you didn't even watch it, or again, simply didn't understand what he said.  Hint: it was about the use of PCR for viruses and RNA in general.

I saw the video.

 

Yeah? And did you see that PCR tests are considered the "gold standard" for measuring SAR viruses.

 

A spokesperson for Public Health England told Reuters why PCR tests are being used widely in England: “Molecular diagnostic tests, such as real-time PCR, are the gold standard methods for identifying individuals with an active viral infection, such as SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19 disease), in their respiratory tract. These tests are rapid and produce results in real-time.

 

It's in the Reuters link above. So let me ask you this: do you know what the scientific method is to measure this, or are you rejecting evidence because it doesn't suit your narrative?

 

To me, it's the second. You have yet to explain how it works, Mr. Researcher.
