  1. What is the current amplification rate of the PCR test? 45? Won’t someone ask Ashley Bloomfield?

    Will they scale it down again later to suit the narrative? ????

    So many questions, never any answers…..

    • What Bloomfield should be called upon to explain is why on Earth the PCR test is still being used when the CDC (and numerous other experts) have declared that it is not suitable as a diagnostic tool for covid. It is completely unreliable. We should abandon all testing, it causes more harm than good.

  2. Still so much emphasis on vaccine??WHY? It’s not doing anything, why can’t people get it? SA GP said late last year that the latest variant is just like a common flu…people just pushed her views aside but now UK media interviewed her and said she was correct all along. Why are people so afraid? So mad as my spouse went ahead and got the booster…oh crazy world. Appears the fear mongers are winning ☹️☹️
