To sell the illusion, that the vaccine is working.
California public health officials recorded 3,084 breakthrough cases this year. “… it is likely that additional post-vaccination cases will occur.”
Post-vaccination cases are recorded if a person tests positive for SARS-Cov-2 two weeks after receiving J&J or completing the two-dose Moderna or Pfizer vaccination. But, why?
Well, since the beginning of this pandemic, PCR-CT values in excess of 35 cycles have been used around the world, with some tests using 40+ cycles. Dr. Anthony Fauci told the world that anything over 35 cycles was useless in testing for COVID-19. Yet this has been the standard throughout the pandemic and has caused hundreds of thousands of false positives.
Well now, the CDC is changing its practices of data logging and testing for Covid-19. Lower cycles when testing vaccinated patients. This is undoubtedly being done in order to decrease the number of breakthrough infections being officially reported.
As of May 2021 (and only for fully vaccinated people), the CDC will only accept samples achieved from 28 cycles or fewer. Also, asymptomatic or mild infections will no longer be recorded.
As of May 1, 2021, CDC transitioned from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases to focus on identifying and investigating only hospitalized or fatal cases due to any cause. This shift will help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance. Previous case counts, which were last updated on April 26, 2021, are available for reference only and will not be updated moving forward.
If this was done in the first place, there would never have been a pandemic at all. The incredibly broad definition of “Covid case”, used all over the world, lists anyone who receives a positive test as a “Covid case”, even if they never experienced any symptoms. The CDC has enacted two policy changes that will make this broad definition no longer apply to vaccinated people.
From the CDC’s instructions for state health authorities on handling “possible breakthrough infections” (uploaded to their website in late April) Made Official on May 1st 2021:
For cases with a known RT-PCR cycle threshold (Ct) value, submit only specimens with Ct value ≤28 to CDC for sequencing. (Sequencing is not feasible with higher Ct values.)
So now, even if a sample collected at the low CT value of 28 turns out to be positive, the CDC will no longer be keeping records of breakthrough infections that don’t result in hospitalization or death. Although, previous (much less strict) guidelines are what allowed cases to rise and lockdowns to take place.
According to the latest available numbers, as of April 26, the CDC reported 9,245 people had tested positive for COVID at least two weeks after getting their final COVID vaccination. About 9%, or 835, people required hospitalization, and 132 died.
Of the hospitalized patients, 241 were said to be asymptomatic or having an illness not related to COVID, and 20 deaths were reported as asymptomatic or not related to the disease. The latest numbers are from 46 U.S. states and territories.
A frank and honest translation: “We’re changing the way we’re doing PCR tests. We were running them with a high number of cycles and getting millions of false positives, and those numbers were deployed to justify the lockdowns—but NOW we’re moving to a lower number of cycles. This change, all on its own, will result in fewer positive results, fewer case numbers, making the vaccine look VERY GOOD.
