- Cases is a term that describes people who are believed to be infected with SARS-CoV-2 and suffer from COVID-19.
- The definition of cases varies state by state.
- A case is not an absolute determination because it is not positively verified.
- Cases are largely determined by a PCR test, which has been disqualified for COVID-19 diagnosis by the FDA because it cannot distinguish between Influenza and COVID-19.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced in April that it has stopped tracking COVID cases among the vaccinated that do not result in hospitalizations or deaths. The agency is now assuming that new cases are among the unvaccinated unless otherwise advised, which skews numbers to paint the unvaccinated as spreaders of disease.
- Hospitals claiming “at capacity” only because they reduced capacity.
“Cases” are not very reliable as a metric for viral infection. Many locations have low standards for consideration as a “case”. For example, there is a “believed to be COVID-19” criteria. There are also situations where lab testing companies only report positive cases, which means 100% of their results are positive. With regards to COVID-19, the big problem is the use of the now FDA discredited PCR test to diagnose active infections (see PCR testing). Instead, what truly matters is the death rate and adverse events. These were left out of government and mainstream media.
Cases are a useless metric.
