1 & 2: That article “Duration of infectiousness and correlation with RT-PCR cycle threshold values in cases of COVID-19, England, January to May 2020 (n324)” is misleading for the following reasons: “Virus culture was attempted from 324 URT samples (from 253 cases) that tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 by RT-PCR”: and “Presence of SARS-CoV-2 was confirmed by SARS-CoV-2 nucleoprotein staining by enzyme immunoassay on infected cells” Where and how has been tested the validity and reliance of RT-PCR and of said staining and Ct values: These are not provided.
3: No prove is provided for it to be conforming the Rivers postulates
4: A study on ferrets at a Porton Down lab: like the Lockdown; is a very stress-full situation which will weaken the immune system: It is a study that is not representative for the transmittable quality of human covid19.
Moreover, PHE provided no proof of SARS-Cov-2
