They are here as well, directing us to ignore chemtrails, or anything to do with space or discussion of what we live in.

I ignore nothing, I'm certain of nothing, I consider everything

I think you're on to something though! You have to wonder why those of us asking questions are constantly being slammed to the mat by the same people over and over again for asking those questions and not simply accepting the popular narrative.

I no longer wonder. It's only too obvious that when folks come on and attempt to directly direct you away from possible questions, with constant they know for sure knowledge that they can't possibly know for sure.

This applies:

constantly being slammed
Merely offering reasonable and logical explanations for the questions being asked, is all I've done.

The only ridicule I've used has only been to those who refuse to objectively consider it, or ignore it completely, or have previously ridiculed any/all logical explanations for what they observe.
ie: I merely respond in-kind to those addressing me. Be nice you get nice in return. Be a dick and you get a bigger dick in return.

Edited to add: I'm just applying the golden rule to the actions of others and treating them in the manner they are demonstrating that they want to be treated in.

Pfizer has asked a U.S. court to throw out a whistleblower’s lawsuit on the basis that the company can’t be guilty of fraud, abuse, and protocol violations in its COVID Vaccine clinical trials because its contract with the U.S. government allowed them to skirt regulations and federal laws that typically apply to government contracts.

In other words, Pfizer was allegedly able to make false statements to the government, and lie about the safety and efficacy of its product, “because the government was in on it with them!” according to Robert Barnes, the lead lawyer in the case.

The whistleblower, Brook Jackson, was the regional director for the Ventavia Research Group, the company that was conducting Pfizer’s pivotal phase III trial in Texas in 2020.

"A new study by Israeli researchers and published in Nature has revealed an increase of over 25 percent in cardiovascular-related emergency calls in the young-adult population, following the rollout of COVID vaccines, among both males and females. No similar increase was found due to COVID infection alone."

Persistent Cardiac MRI Findings in a Cohort of Adolescents with post COVID-19 mRNA vaccine myopericarditis

Authors: Jenna Schauer, MD; Sujatha Buddhe, MD, MS; Avanti Gulhane, MD, DNB, FSCMR; Sathish Mallenahalli Chikkabyrappa, MD; Yuk Law, MD; Michael A. Portman, MD

Published: March 25, 2022

We describe the evolution of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging findings in 16 patients, aged 12-17 years, with myopericarditis after the second dose of the Pfizer mRNA coronavirus disease 2019 vaccine. Although all patients showed rapid clinical improvement, many had persistent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging findings at 3- to 8-month follow-up.

Abstract: Myopericarditis has emerged as an important adverse event following COVID-19 mRNA vaccination, particularly in adolescents [[1]]. Patients typically exhibit chest pain and an elevated serum troponin level in the days following the COVID-19 mRNA vaccine. They usually are hemodynamically stable, and symptoms and cardiac biomarkers normalize within a few days [[2]]. cardiac magnetic resonance studies, when performed early, frequently demonstrate abnormalities such as edema and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE), meeting Lake Louise Criteria for diagnosing myocarditis noninvasively [[2],[3]]. In classical myocarditis LGE can be predictive of a poor outcome [[5]]. Little is known about the prognostic value or expected evolution of these CMR abnormalities associated with post-COVID-19 mRNA vaccine myopericarditis. In this case series we report the evolution of CMR imaging compared with initial, acute phase, CMR in our cohort of patients with myopericarditis post COVID-19 mRNA vaccine.

If you have a subscription to The Epoch Times, this is a good interview.

Pfizer, Moderna, J&J Vaccines Should Be ‘Immediately Pulled Off the Market’—Dr. Peter McCullough and John Leake (1:07:02)​
American Thought Leaders​
JAN JEKIELEK​
“What we’ve learned is an unbelievable story of poor safety. In fact, I think it’s basically a biological catastrophe on our hands,” says Dr. Peter McCullough, an internist, cardiologist, epidemiologist, and leading expert on COVID-19 treatment.​
In this episode, we sit down with Dr. McCullough and author John Leake, co-authors of “The Courage to Face COVID-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death While Battling the Bio-Pharmaceutical Complex.”​

Their book sounds good.

The Viral Delusion...

The biggest delusion in the history of mankind. It is pure narrative designed to hide the deadly results of industrial environmental pollution and number one why so designed is the incredible profit venture, one of the most profitable in history. It's all about profit...

In simpler terms, this is the devil exercising his powers, creating a narrative, a story, in order to reap as much as he can get from you.

We are living in dark times when fear and ignorance rule the lives and actions of millions of people. The public is unaware of, or chooses to ignore, the CDC's own vaccine injury reporting site, VAERS, that reported by the end of May 2022, there had been 28,532 deaths from the Covid vaccine, and a total of 1,457,342 deaths and injuries from the Covid vaccine. Those numbers do not take into account that only one percent of all deaths and injuries are reported to VAERS and that the CDC has begun the arbitrary removal of thousands of deaths and injuries from the site. In states like California, Oregon, Washington, and New York where the drug/vaccine/pesticide industry owns most of the democratic politicians that run those states, dangerous bills are being considered, like SB 866 in the California legislature that threatens to take away the rights of parents to make medical decisions for their children. The pharmaceutical industry has been killing people for decades with their products, and despite numerous criminal and civil convictions in court, their executives never spend a day in jail, and continue to be relentless in pushing for more profits, regardless of the deadly impact their products have on children and adults all over the world.

What many people do not realize is that while the pharmaceutical industry is effectively marketing their drugs and vaccines using their powerful PR firms, they also have strong connections to disease "charities." At the same time pharma is pushing for the right to inflict their Covid jabs on tiny babies, their relentless requests for more money via disease organizations never lessens. TV commercials, printed ads, and mass mailings use pictures of babies and children to induce you to donate to their "charities." Pharma is partnered with The American Cancer Society, Susan Komen, The Alzheimer's Association, St. Jude Research Hospital, The Michael Fox Foundation, Stand up to Cancer, and many more. So, before the heartwarming commercials induce you to get out your checkbook and send in a contribution to one of these "worthwhile charities," read some of the facts below and you'll probably rethink your decision.

THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

ACS is the mother of all disease organizations. It was founded in 1913 and since then they have tortured millions of animals in their laboratories, supposedly in their search for a cancer cure which they know will never be discovered through vivisection. ACS is one of the richest charities in the world with assets of over $1.3 billion. Their executives enjoy extravagant lifestyles, six figure salaries, and hefty pensions. Board members include executives from pharmaceutical companies like Amgen that manufactures a chemotherapy drug Neupogen. The higher the cancer rates, the more money ACS's partner Amgen makes. Board members from the mammogram industry on the ACS board insure that ACS will continue to deny that radiation from mammograms causes cancer. ACS's relationship with Astra Zeneca inspired them to recruit healthy women to take part in a clinical trial where they were given the highly toxic drug tamoxifen that has been proven to cause uterine cancer. ACS receives donations from petrochemical companies, drug companies, industrial waste companies, and other cancer-causing industries. ACS denied for years that smoking causes cancer. They attacked a FRONTLINE report on PBS regarding the dangers of pesticides. They ruthlessly persecute doctors who practice the natural healing of cancer. In the world of ACS only drugs and radiation must be allowed to treat cancer. They deny that there are cures to cancer and continue to beg for more money to find it.

SUSAN G. KOMEN

When Nancy Brinker's sister, Susan Komen, died from breast cancer, Nancy and pharma saw the opportunity for establishing another huge money maker. Pink ribbons and a whole month dedicated to pushing donations for Komen have inspired millions of people to dress up in pink costumes, pay the entry fee, and walk or run for the cause. Komen is worth well over $400 million and since 1982, has been talking about the ever-illusive "cure" that never comes. Their executives travel first class, and receive six figure salaries. While most of their budget is spent on overhead, salaries, advertising, etc. 20 percent of their donations goes to animal experimentation. Even though the physiology of animals is completely different from humans, they claim this research is necessary to find a "cure" to breast cancer, which for over thirty years is still "around the corner."

One of their partners is DuPont, a chemical company that manufactures the film used in mammography machines, which is one of the reasons why Nancy Brinker strongly advocates for mammograms. Another partner is Chevron, a major polluter and destroyer of the environment. Monsanto/Bayer is one of Komen's sponsors, even though it is a well-known fact, proven in court, that this company produces, among other toxins, pesticides that cause cancer. Komen owns stock in Astra Zeneca, a polluter and producer of cancer-causing products which is proud to be the founder of Breast Cancer Awareness month. As with ACS, the hypocrisy of Komen is glaring. It is unfathomable why all the walkers and runners who raise money for them are unable to understand that after 30 years of failure to find a "cure," Komen is never going to give them one.

THE ALZHEIMER'S ASSOCIATION

This organization was founded in 1980 to provide support for families of people with Alzheimer's and to fund biomedical research, a euphemism for animal experimentation. They have assets of over $250 million and spend a quarter of that on vivisection. Countless studies in the U.S. and Europe have proven that aluminum is one of the main causes of Alzheimer's. In the 1980s, ads and commercials were everywhere, warning us against using aluminum products - in beauty creams, anti-perspirants, cooking utensils, aluminum foil, and more. Then all the warnings suddenly disappeared. The powerful aluminum industry had let the medical industry know that their ads were hurting their profits and that they needed to stop.

The aluminum industry spends over $400,000 a year lobbying Congress and their wishes are hardly ever denied. Because of the aluminum industry's pushback, the Alzheimer's Association chose to ignore the aluminum connection to Alzheimer's and instead, like all disease organizations, claims to be looking for the "cure." They are also searching for that laughable, favorite imaginary creature of vivisectors, a human/mouse model. The Alzheimer's Association vivisectors claim they will "invent" a mouse that's exactly like a human being, somehow they will inflict it with Alzheimer's, and then proceed to find a cure by tormenting the mouse. That human/mouse model has yet to see the light of day. Every drug and "breakthrough" the Alzheimer's Association has announced in the past several decades has been a failure, causing, like all drugs do, a brief respite from symptoms, then an array of dangerous side effects. Premier Alzheimer's researcher in England, Dr. Christopher Exley, at Keele University, who studied the aluminum/Alzheimer's connection, also provided a way to cleanse the body from aluminum and heal from the disease. His team was defunded because Bill Gates used his money and influence to shut his research down. Dr. Exley had the temerity to link the aluminum in vaccines to Alzheimer's.

ST. JUDE RESEARCH HOSPITAL

No one knows how to tug at the heartstrings better than Marlo Thomas at St. Jude. Using celebrities and small children who have been inundated with radiation and drugs, rendering them hairless and hollow eyed, Marlo produces commercials that would have you believe that St. Jude is all about altruism and healing children from cancer. Nothing could be further from the truth. St. Jude was founded by Danny Thomas in 1962 when his entertainment career was slipping, and after his death, fundraising has been taken over by his children. St. Jude has assets of over $5.302 billion and, after St. Jude Medical partnered with Abbott Laboratories, their income in 2018 was $981 million. Richard C. Shadyac, Jr. the CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising arm of St. Jude, received, in 2018, a salary of $893,589. The top executives of ALSAC all receive salaries in the high six figures. Andrew Davidoff, chairman of St. Jude, received $1,365,679 in salary in 2018, and James Downing, president and CEO of St. Jude, received $1,202.948. All the top executives at St. Jude receive salaries in the high six figures, along with first class travel perks, companion travel expenses, and tax indemnifications. St. Jude has been investigated by the Justice Department more than once for illegal kickbacks and had the faulty products they manufacture recalled by the FDA time and time again.

St. Jude claims that the survival rate of children in their care has gone up from 20 percent to 80 percent. Survival rate means that if a child lives five years after treatment at St. Jude then dies, he or she is considered a survivor even though he or she is six feet under. Our efforts to find the actual mortality rate from government sources in D.C. or Tennessee were rebuffed. St. Jude does not want it known what that mortality rate is.

St. Jude is given total authority by parents to experiment on their children. The list of toxic treatments that are inflicted on children at St. Jude's is heartbreaking. (For a partial list refer to our article about St. Jude's on our site) Most of the treatments involve chemotherapy and radiation, the two standard toxic therapies perpetrated on adults as well. Is there anyone who hasn't known a cancer patient who was chemoed and radiated to death and died in terrible pain? Children, with their underdeveloped immune systems, must suffer even more.

And when someone dies from the toxic therapies, we are always told that it was cancer that killed them, not the poisons and radiation they had inflicted on them. Natural healing through detoxification and diet, which actually can cure cancer, is unheard of in the medical/pharmaceutical industry. To admit that natural healing works would put them out of business.

The animal experiments that are perpetrated on animals in the St. Jude/Abbott vivisection laboratories are some of the most brutal in the country. PETA has used every avenue at their disposal to try to end some of the most horrific experiments but have had little success. As with all disease organizations, St. Jude receives donations and taxpayer grants of over $84 million a year to torture animals and they will not easily give up that money.

One of St. Jude's favorite fundraisers is their annual "Coon Hunt." People gather to have their dogs chase down racoons, tear them apart limb from limb and then the racoons are skinned on stage in front of a cheering audience. Marlo has been asked year after year by animal activists to end this unspeakably cruel event but her reaction was to say that "Coon Hunt" sounds too racist so they will change the name to "Racoon Festival." The fun and festivity for these St. Jude sadists will continue unless the public demands an end to it.


CONCLUSION

This is just a partial list of all the disease organizations involved in vivisection who claim to be looking for "cures." The vivisectors know better than anyone that experiments on animals cannot be extrapolated to humans, but to them, that is the beauty of it - they can claim until the end of time that they are looking for the "cure," but sadly it never comes, so just give them more money and you can feel the warm glow of thinking you are "doing something worthwhile."

We suggest that if you receive an envelope from one of these "charities" that you not merely throw it away, (although that's better than writing a check) send them a little note explaining why you are refusing to donate. If they say they are doing biomedical research it means they are experimenting on animals.

If you want to learn more about these disease organizations, they are listed on our site under the title in bold letters: Information Cards. https://www.peopleforreason.org/

Lab Origins of SARS-COV2​

A friend and former colleague asked me about the latest news regarding the "natural" versus "lab origins" hypothesis for SARS-COV2. I've held firm to my convictions formed in 2020: It came from a lab​


CognitiveCarbon

An old friend and former colleague asked me about the latest news regarding the “natural” vs “lab origins” hypotheses for SARS-COV2, the virus responsible for the disease known as COVID-19. I’ve held firm since early 2020 that the virus was man-made, and new evidence continues to accumulate that makes this conclusion all but inescapable.

I decided to collect together some material and links that I had saved and put them here so that you can easily reference them (and so can I.) I may add to this post in the future, if I find other links of interest, but these are the most important ones I found and saved so far. Without a doubt, there are many other resources of interest on this topic.

It. Was. Made. In. A. Lab.

Here are the links.
  1. SARS-COV Chimeric virus paper, 2007; some authors on this paper were from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. They experimented with adding HIV proteins to SARS-COV to create chimeric viruses to test ACE2 binding. (more detail and clip below)
  2. This article, which hints at an emergency shutdown in the Wuhan Lab in October of 2019.
  3. This Epoch Times article, which lays the background for the CCP’s involvement in biological weapons research over many decades.
  4. This article, published on GITHUB in April of 2020 by researchers who wished to remain anonymous so that their careers wouldn’t be destroyed. It also presents historical evidence of many biological research accidents around the world over decades that most people are blissfully unaware of.
  5. The Spartacus letter, revised in September of 2021.
  6. This article by EthicalSkeptic, who makes the claim that analyses of the “Genetic clock” of mutations on the strains of SARS-COV-2 yield surprising contradictions about the sequential origin of various strains, including Omicron. His claim: the Wuhan strain may extend as far back as 2018 and Omicron possibly earlier still. His twitter account https://twitter.com/EthicalSkeptic is a national treasure, in my opinion, as he is one of the sharpest minds in data analytics I have ever known.
  7. This article by “ClownBasket” on substack, which summarizes a number of other articles and findings pointing to lab origins of SARS-COV2.
  8. This article by Dr. Ah Kahn Syed, who uses the gene sequence comparison and analysis tool known as BLAST to find interesting correlations between the sequence(s) for SARS-COV2 and existing sequences that were already stored in GENBANK and other repositories. His conclusion: lab originated.
  9. This tweet thread from Jessica Rose, when she first read the Pradhan paper whose results are summarized here. Jessica’s Substack is also chock full of reference material relating to the virus, pandemic policies, and the shots. Jessica’s Twitter bio is impressive: “Applied Mathematician | Immunologist | Computational Biologist | Molecular Biologist | Biochemist | Musician | Writer | Logger”
I may add additional links here in the future, but this is a good starting point.

A New Test Can Help Reveal If You're Immune to COVID-19​

BY JAMIE DUCHARME

UPDATED: JUNE 14, 2022 9:50 AM EDT | ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED: JUNE 13, 2022 11:20 AM EDT

How much protection do you currently have against COVID-19? The answer depends on so much: whether you’ve already had COVID-19 (and if so, how long ago); whether you’ve been vaccinated (and if so, how many times, and how recently); whether you have any medical conditions that could weaken your immune system; and so on. Even antibody testing only approximates immunity to COVID-19, so there’s no simple way to know.

But an international group of researchers recently developed a different tool to help assess COVID-19 immunity: a blood test that can measure T cells, white blood cells that work alongside virus-fighting antibodies to mount an immune response. Their work is described in a new study published in Nature Biotechnology.

T-cell testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus isn’t totally new—the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted emergency-use authorization to another T-cell test, called T-Detect, last year—but it tends to be labor- and time-intensive, says study co-author Ernesto Guccione, a professor of oncological sciences at New York City’s Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai. His group, which includes other researchers from Mount Sinai and institutions including Singapore’s Duke-NUS Medical School, aimed to simplify it by using technology that is widely accessible and can turn around results in less than 24 hours.

Their process starts with mixing a person’s blood sample with material from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If there are T cells specific to SARS-CoV-2 in the blood, they’ll react to the viral material and produce a substance that can be detected via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology, like that used to run COVID-19 diagnostic tests. Measured levels of that compound serve as a proxy for cellular immunity.

The test has been licensed to the U.K.-based biotechnology company Hyris and is already in use in Europe. The FDA is still reviewing the technology, so it’s not yet available in the U.S. (Hyris employees served as co-authors on the Nature Biotechnology paper, and its technology was used in the study; Guccione consults for therapeutic companies and receives compensation through a licensing agreement between Hyris and Mount Sinai.)

Why test for T cells when antibody tests are already widely available? There are a few reasons, Guccione says.

Testing for antibodies only tells part of the story, since T cells are also a critical piece of the body’s immune response. And while antibody levels drop off significantly within a few months of vaccination or infection, cellular immunity can last up to a year, Guccione says. “Monitoring both will give us a much clearer picture [of immunity] and will hopefully inform our re-vaccination strategies,” Guccione says. The wide use of this test could help define how long protection lasts and how often booster doses are needed.

Plus, some immunocompromised people do not produce antibodies—even after multiple vaccine doses—but they usually do have some T cell response. T-cell testing could help those individuals learn whether they have any defenses against COVID-19.

There are limits to what the test can reveal. Experts are still trying to find what are known as “correlates of protection” for COVID-19: measurable indicators that suggest an individual is protected enough that they are unlikely to get sick. For now, testing for antibodies or T cells can’t give you a yes-or-no answer about whether it’s safe to go to a concert or party without fear of catching the virus, for example. It just gives you one more data point to factor into your risk calculation.

Guccione says widespread T-cell testing could help define those elusive correlates of protection by making immunity easier to study. A scalable, affordable testing strategy could facilitate larger studies that bring much-needed answers.

“With large numbers comes clarity,” Guccione says. “That’s the hope: by using this test, we can finally get those numbers that were totally unavailable with the previous technology.”

Correction, June 13

The original version of this story misstated the financial relationship between Hyris and Guccione. He does not receive royalty payments directly from Hyris.

SARS-CoV-2–specific T cell quantification​

SARS-CoV-2–specific T cells were tested as described before (Le Bert et al., 2020). Briefly, PBMCs were isolated using Ficoll-Paque and directly tested by IFN-γ-ELISpot for reactivity to four SARS-CoV-2 peptide pools of 15-mers covering NP (NP-1, NP-2) and membrane (M) and one pool of 55 peptides covering the most immunogenic regions of S (Fig. S2).

T cells reactive to different pools of S peptides in COVID-19 convalescents.
Spike is a long protein with 1,276 amino acids; thus it requires 253 15-mer peptides overlapping by 10 amino acids to cover the whole protein, equaling 7 pools of ∼40 peptides. To reduce the number of peptide pools to test, we selected a single “S pool” comprising 55 peptides. For the selection, all sequences of published SARS-CoV-1 epitopes (http://www.iedb.org; positive assays only, T cells assays, host: human) were aligned with the library of S-SARS-CoV-2 15-mers. We selected the 15-mer peptides that cover the homologue sequence of the described SARS-CoV-1 epitope sequences. In addition, we added the 15-mer peptides that cover the predicted SARS-CoV-2 S epitopes published by Grifoni et al. (2020b). The 55 peptides cover 40.5% of the S protein. The frequency of reactive cells to the selected S pool (red) was compared with the seven pools of 15-mers overlapping by 10 amino acids covering together the entire S protein (S1–S7) in COVID-19 convalescents (n = 15).

I find THAT ( 1,276 amino acids ) curious
in-so-much-as the " Spike Protein " of " Wuhan-Hu-1 " has 1273 amino acids.

There are at a minimum inconsistencies across ((( their ))) documentation.

Hmmm ...

A New Test Can Help Reveal If You're Immune to COVID-19​

BY JAMIE DUCHARME

UPDATED: JUNE 14, 2022 9:50 AM EDT | ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED: JUNE 13, 2022 11:20 AM EDT

How much protection do you currently have against COVID-19? The answer depends on so much: whether you’ve already had COVID-19 (and if so, how long ago); whether you’ve been vaccinated (and if so, how many times, and how recently); whether you have any medical conditions that could weaken your immune system; and so on. Even antibody testing only approximates immunity to COVID-19, so there’s no simple way to know.

But an international group of researchers recently developed a different tool to help assess COVID-19 immunity: a blood test that can measure T cells, white blood cells that work alongside virus-fighting antibodies to mount an immune response. Their work is described in a new study published in Nature Biotechnology.

T-cell testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus isn’t totally new—the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted emergency-use authorization to another T-cell test, called T-Detect, last year—but it tends to be labor- and time-intensive, says study co-author Ernesto Guccione, a professor of oncological sciences at New York City’s Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai. His group, which includes other researchers from Mount Sinai and institutions including Singapore’s Duke-NUS Medical School, aimed to simplify it by using technology that is widely accessible and can turn around results in less than 24 hours.

Their process starts with mixing a person’s blood sample with material from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If there are T cells specific to SARS-CoV-2 in the blood, they’ll react to the viral material and produce a substance that can be detected via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology, like that used to run COVID-19 diagnostic tests. Measured levels of that compound serve as a proxy for cellular immunity.

The test has been licensed to the U.K.-based biotechnology company Hyris and is already in use in Europe. The FDA is still reviewing the technology, so it’s not yet available in the U.S. (Hyris employees served as co-authors on the Nature Biotechnology paper, and its technology was used in the study; Guccione consults for therapeutic companies and receives compensation through a licensing agreement between Hyris and Mount Sinai.)

Why test for T cells when antibody tests are already widely available? There are a few reasons, Guccione says.

Testing for antibodies only tells part of the story, since T cells are also a critical piece of the body’s immune response. And while antibody levels drop off significantly within a few months of vaccination or infection, cellular immunity can last up to a year, Guccione says. “Monitoring both will give us a much clearer picture [of immunity] and will hopefully inform our re-vaccination strategies,” Guccione says. The wide use of this test could help define how long protection lasts and how often booster doses are needed.

Plus, some immunocompromised people do not produce antibodies—even after multiple vaccine doses—but they usually do have some T cell response. T-cell testing could help those individuals learn whether they have any defenses against COVID-19.

There are limits to what the test can reveal. Experts are still trying to find what are known as “correlates of protection” for COVID-19: measurable indicators that suggest an individual is protected enough that they are unlikely to get sick. For now, testing for antibodies or T cells can’t give you a yes-or-no answer about whether it’s safe to go to a concert or party without fear of catching the virus, for example. It just gives you one more data point to factor into your risk calculation.

Guccione says widespread T-cell testing could help define those elusive correlates of protection by making immunity easier to study. A scalable, affordable testing strategy could facilitate larger studies that bring much-needed answers.

“With large numbers comes clarity,” Guccione says. “That’s the hope: by using this test, we can finally get those numbers that were totally unavailable with the previous technology.”

Correction, June 13

The original version of this story misstated the financial relationship between Hyris and Guccione. He does not receive royalty payments directly from Hyris.

I don't see how anyone can trust any medical testing any more. This entire debacle was started by a known faulty test for a man made virus that nobody actually isolated. Now I'm supposed to trust their tests again?

I'll pass

For it to have been man made, wouldn't it have had to been isolated to begin with? How did they make if they never had it?

If it escaped* from the lab, and I do believe that is where it came from, it had to start out isolated.

* or more likely, intentionally released.

On the top shelf.
if we are lucky he will go on a ventilator




The monster always comes back to wreck revenge on it’s creator.

Fauci succumbing to his creation might be the ultimate karma payback.

Don't forget to jab the hell out of him with remdesivir.....before shoving a vent on him.

He needs MOAR... MOAR of every jab.
