Has the Evidence of Asymptomatic Spread of COVID-19 been Significantly Overstated?

by Dr Clare Craig FRCPath and Jonathan Engler MBChB LLB Abstract Evidence of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from patients who remain asymptomatic (as opposed to pre-symptomatic) is found in a body of numerous meta-analyses. Evidence of asymptomatic transmission has been based on only a handful of instances which themselves are questionable. The existence of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from asymptomatic individuals has become an accepted truth but the evidence for this phenomenon being anything other than mistaken interpretation of false positive test results is weak. Examination of the underlying data from the most frequently-cited such meta-analyses reveals that the conclusions are based on a surprisingly small number of cases (six in total globally) and, moreover, the possibility that they are all coincidental contacts with false positive results cannot be ruled out. Transmission which is pre-symptomatic is rare and represents a negligible risk to the population. It is questionable therefore whether any of the extensive testing, tracing, isolation and lockdown policies have delivered any worthwhile benefit over and above strategies which seek to advise symptomatic individuals to self-isolate. Introduction Many of the world’s economies have been seriously damaged on the basis of alleged evidence that people with no symptoms can spread SARS-CoV-2. It is essential that all such claimed evidence is carefully scrutinised because of the immense and ongoing impact of that claim...

PCR-Based Covid Testing Has Failed

The problem Across Europe, including in the UK, we see the following: Daily ‘cases’ sky-rocketed in Europe as Autumn arrived.Daily deaths labelled as ‘Covid deaths’ rose in line with ‘cases’ – to levels apparently higher than at the Spring peak.BUT: Total all-cause mortality does not reflect the above. What is behind this conundrum? The central thesis of this paper is that we have a major problem with PCR-testing. This is distorting policy and creating the illusion that we are in a serious pandemic when in fact we are not. This is causing: Excess deaths due to restricted access to the NHS.An NHS staffing crisis which is exacerbating matters.Unprecedented assaults on civil liberties and the economy. What we need to do about this: Stop mass-testing using PCR in the UK and replace with Lateral Flow Tests where required.Other recommendations as detailed later in this document. It should be noted that legal cases and technical challenges to PCR mass-testing are growing across Europe, including in the UK. NB: The info contained in this paper is merely illustrative of some of the key issues and does not represent the totality of the evidence available.   The current problem is that both Covid cases and Covid deaths are being overstated massively due to confused definitions and poor measurements. Claims of Covid deaths should be...
