Today, news broke that a “Stanford study” found coronavirus infections to be 55 to 88 times more prevalent than previously reported. The bogus, misleading headline was trumpeted at Breitbart.com and most of the independent media as the latest effort to try to claim the coronavirus is “no worse than the flu.”
The problem with this breaking news? It’s completely false.
As we show below, 13 out of 14 “positives” documented in the study were likely false positives.
In fact, the study is based almost entirely on false positives due to the faulty test kits that were used by Stanford researchers. Those test kits, it turns out, were made in China by a biotech manufacturer rated at the very bottom in a list of test accuracy rankings. And just like all the other China-made test kits that are exported to the USA, they are intended to create complacency across the USA by making people believe the coronavirus isn’t dangerous at all.
This is achieved by China exporting kits which produce huge numbers of false positives. Combined with the very low number of actual test subjects used in the study, the data are so horribly bad that the study is worthless (and the conclusions are bogus). In fact, it’s worse than most of the so-called “climate science” that’s often cited by progressives who claim the oceans will rise so fast that New York City will be under water in a decade or so.
Let’s take a look at how this study falls apart.
NATURE openly admits the study may be bogus due to unreliable antibody test kits
