“Dead” Virus Cells Frequently Trigger “False Positives” In Most Common COVID Test, New Study Finds

“In the past, our reports raising questions about the accuracy of COVID-19 tests have been met with accusations of ‘fearmongering’ and spreading ‘misinformation’.”

But not today.

That’s because new research from the University of Oxford’s Center for Evidence-Based Medicine and the University of the West of England has found that the swab-based technique used for most COVID-19 testing is at risk of returning “false positives” since copies of the virus’s RNA detected by the tests might simply be dead, inactive material from a weeks-old infection. Although patients infected with COVID-19 are typically only infectious for a week or less, tests can be triggered by virus genetic material left over from a weeks-old infection.”
