      You ought to do some research into the PCR test. The person who invented it won an award for it, but it was not developed for the purpose of testing for covid 19 and the inventor has stated this quite clearly. The test will come up positive if it detects fragments of viruses in the person being tested. We all have these fragments in us if we have had a cold or the flu. Testing positive using the PCR test does not prove that someone has Covid 19 – it proves that at some time, they have had or currently have a virus which can be one of many in circulation. To shutdown facilities and countries on the basis of this test is beyond ridiculous. If you would like some links to sources please email me
