China is Criticizing Virus Testing

world news online news

(ANS) Even as China has imposed some of the world’s most stringent restrictions and lockdowns, which were implemented over a virus comparable to the seasonal flu, it is now criticizing countries that are requiring that visitors from China to undergo virus tests. online news

In particular, China’s foreign ministry issued this statement:

“We believe that the entry restrictions adopted by some countries lack scientific basis…’

The irony of this situation is not lost on critics of the PCR test, for example.

During the past three years, in a number of countries, the PCR test has been used to “determine” whether people were infected with the virus.

However, criticis and analysts have maintained that during the past few years the PCR test has been misused and implemented in a way that inaccuracies occurred.

They assert that frequently those administering and evaluating the PCR tests subjected test samples to amplifications in excess of 35 times.

Each amplification is logarithmic.

When test samples are subjected to amplifications in excess of 35 times, the likelihood of false positives’ occurring is rather great, they say.

The foreign ministry announced that, in response, it will impose “countermeasures.” It criticized virus tests as being politically motivated.

Countries that are imposing tests include Australia and Canada.

The US, INdia and the UK are putting in place stricter entry standards, according to ANS.

For its part, France will be requiring travelers from China to demonstrate negative virus tests. Tests must be done within two days of arrivals, officials say.

Even after gaining entry, travelers from China will be subjected to periodic testing, according to reports.

Sweden, whose representative holds the presidency of the European Union, is pressing the EU to develop and to impose EU-wide standards.

The UK will be requiring those traveling from China to take tests before boarding airlines. However, officials claim that tests will be used only for “informational purposes”.

They say that no quarantines will be imposed.

China’s officials have been conferring with those of the World Health Organization (WHO). Reportedly, those conferences have concerned the virus, measures said to counter the virus and the experimental mRNA vaccine.

A number of the world’s political leaders have been pressing for adoption of a “vaccine passport”.

For example, during the recently held Bali Conference, US President Biden, signed onto the provision that calls for a worldwide vaccine passport.

That is, if such a provision were adopted on an international level, travelers would be required to show proof of vaccination.

In the wake of protests in various cities in China, officials there eased lockdowns and restrictions.

More recently, China announced that travelers to China would not be subjected to quarantines and the like.

A number of critics are saying that the easing of restrictions is a way to create conditions of fear such that additional restrictions and vaccine mandates will be imposed.

Notes from APS Radio News

In the US, for example, the average mortality rate of the virus has been .07%.

In previous years, when the seasonal flu (influenza virus) was being recorded, there have been times when the mortality rate of that virus could be as high as .13%.

As well, for most age groups, the recovery rate has been 99%.

Dr. John Ioannidis, a research scientist and an evidence-based expert at Stanford University, has outlined the fatality risks of the virus as a function of age groups.

“The real-world risk of dying from COVID-19 based on published data from the Irish census bureau and the central statistics office for 2020 and 2021 is as follows: For people

under 70, the death rate was 0.014%; under 50 years of age, it was 0.002%, which equates to a 1 in 50,000 risk, or about the same as dying from fire or smoke inhalation.

Under 25 years of age, the mortality rate was 0.00018%, or 1 in 500,000 risk of dying from COVID-19.”
