The number of people in the United States, who are testing positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus or are being counted as coronavirus cases, as well as hospitalizations and deaths attributed to COVID-19 symptoms, has been steadily declining since the end of April 2021. According to a CNBS analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University, as of May 1, seven-day daily average of new SARS-CoV-2 infections had fallen below 50,000—down 17 percent from the previous week.1 2 3
An analysis by Reuters of state and county data for the week ending on Apr. 25 found that new SARS-CoV-2 infections had dropped by 16 percent in the previous week to a daily average of 58,429, compared to the nearly 70,000 new daily cases of the virus reported during the week ending on Apr. 18, and 70,040 new daily cases during the week ending Apr. 12.4 5
In March, the average number of new daily SARS-CoV-2 infections had grown from a low of 38,000 new daily cases for the week ending on Mar. 14 to more than 50,000 daily cases toward the end of the month. At that time, there was concern by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials that the growth in average new daily infections may be leading to a “fourth surge” of the virus in the U.S. During a White House virtual briefing on Mar. 29, the CDC’s director, Rochelle Walensky, MD, warned Americans about the “uptick in cases” at the time.6 7 8 She said:
When I first started at CDC about two months ago, I made a promise to you, I would tell you the truth, even if it was not the news we wanted to hear. Now is one of those times when I have to share the truth and I have to hope and trust you. Listen, I’m going to pause here. I’m going to lose the script and I’m going to reflect on the recurring feeling I have of impending doom. We have so much to look forward to, so much promise and potential of where we are and so much reason for hope. But right now, I’m scared.8
CDC Changes How It Counts “Breakthrough Cases” and Lowers Cycle Threshold for PCR Tests
Sometime between mid- to late-April, the CDC issued new guidance titled “COVID-19 Vaccine Breakthrough Case Investigation and Reporting.” The guidance was intended to notify the public that during the “coming weeks,” the CDC would “transition from monitoring all reported vaccine breakthrough cases (cases of fully vaccinated people coming down with COVID-19) to focus on identifying and investigating only vaccine breakthrough infections that resulted in hospitalization or death.” Health officials said the “shift” would ” help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance.”9 10
The guidance also notified laboratories that, in conducting RT-PCR (reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) tests, they should reduce the magnification cycle threshold (CT) for detecting the SARS-CoV-2 virus to 28 or less, as opposed to the internationally accepted cut-off for CT value of between 35-40. According to the guidance, “Clinical specimens for sequencing should have an RT-PCR Ct value ≤28.”
The CT refers to the number of times a sample is amplified by a PCR machine, or thermocycler, to get a result. By reducing the magnification threshold, many people who may have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus under higher magnification thresholds would now test negative.11 12 13 14
It has been estimated, for example, that up to 90 percent of people who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 at a CT of 40 would have tested negative had the CT been reduced to 30.15
CDC Guidance Coincides With Decline in Coronavirus Cases
Since the CDC issued its new guidance in April, the average number of new daily cases of SARS-CoV-2 has plummeted. By mid-May the seven-day average of new daily cases had dropped to 32,000—the lowest amount since late-June 2020, leading to pronouncements by “health experts” that the lower numbers were “proof that vaccines work.” By May 29, the number was down to nearly 21,000 and down further to 14,315 by June 12.16 17 18
There is a growing sense that the three experimental COVID-19 shots (developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna/NIAID and Johnson & Johnson) being used in the U.S. are working and that that is the reason the SARS-CoV-2 cases are have declined so dramatically during the past two months—that that is why “life in the U.S. looks increasingly normal” and “we can now return to life as we know it.” A recent article by the Associated Press features a headline that reads ‘”A summer of freedom’: Vaccine gives new meaning to July 4th.”19 20
It is logical to ask this question about the falling number of lab diagnosed COVID-19 cases: “Is it possible that the CDC’s guidance may have had something to with it?”
Might it also have something to do with the simple fact that fewer Americans are getting tested for SARS-CoV-2? A recent in article in The Wall Street Journal noted that, according to the CDC, laboratories around the country processed a daily average of just over 677,000 tests for the virus during the week ending on June 3, compared to more than 1 million last winter.
The good news is that the percentage of tests coming back positive has decreased to 2 percent (at least partly due to CDC guidance to lower the cycle threshold to 28 or less), compared to 13 percent during the winter. But that still represents a daily average of 13,540 positive tests during the week prior to June 3, versus a daily average of about 260,000 positive tests during the winter.21
The latest downtrend in SARS-CoV-2 infections may be more a simple case of smoke and mirrors than anything else and the belief that the COVID shots are responsible for the marked decline in infections may be unfounded.

CDC stands for CRIMINAL DECEIT CORPORATION. ALL they sell are LIES! I know of two people who died in their sleep (one was young, one older) and they both of course got The Shot beforehand. Then I know of someone who had their relative die in a car accident en route to the hospital, cause of death on certificate? COVID. I guess he ran into a gargantuan covid virus which made him wreck his car.
And, nobody is talking about the fact that people are becoming “magnetic personalities’ due to the shot, it’s causing them to emit a magnetic field.
They aren’t saving us, they’re making vaccine recipients MAGNETIC.
Is there a Mr. Walensky?
If so, I would be extremely worried if I were he.
duh. no. they contribute to our downfall. Do not get the jab.
You’ve explained this better than anyone. I’ve read from Jon Rappoport on the subject of the PCR test threshold cycles going down to 28 for the vaccinated to make the vaccine look like a winner. The word is getting out there. The public needs to know this. I think this is part of the reason why Gov DeSantis of Florida made a law stating that RT PCR threshold cycles must be disclosed for every test. That number has been a secret and still is in other states, where you can’t get the details of the test – just the results.
I think the reality is even worse than the cycles issue…. The PCR ‘test’ can only ‘find’ small proteins, whereas the supposed ‘sars-cov-2’ ‘virus’ is imagined by virologists to be 30,000 bases. So the ‘test’ could never ‘find’ the ‘virus’ even if the supposed virus had ever been found, isolated, and proven to exist (which it hasn’t). How do you test for something you’ve never found?
But let’s pretend it does exist for a moment…. PCR is like doing an internet search. Say you are trying to find a specific large document (in this case, ‘sars-cov-2’), but you can only use a few small words in your search. If you choose very common words (for example: “and” “the” and “dog”) you will get many, many, many ‘positive’ results which will be meaningless. False-positives.
This has been the situation with ‘sars-cov-2’ and ‘covid’ from the beginning. There are hundreds of unregulated PCR tests, which could be searching for any small common proteins and could never find the whole ‘virus’ even if it existed. Imagine a PCR test primed to look for a human snot protein… it would generate a bunch of false-positive ‘sars-cov-2’ cases.
Some less-fraudulent PCR tests search for the ‘spike protein’ which virologists assumed into existence for ‘sars-cov-2.’ I think this is the reason so many vaccinated people are testing ‘positive’ for ‘sars-cov-2’ after vaccination, because their bodies are now flooded with ‘spike proteins’ created by the vaccines hijacking their bodies. And some PCR ‘tests’ are primed to look for ‘spike proteins.’ There is also the possibility of similar proteins that might exist in humans or other living things that could cause false-positives…
The cycles issue is another way to help fake the results– it is like the volume knob on a radio. Turn it down low enough, and you don’t hear anything. Turn it up and you hear…. something. Whether that something is meaningful or not depends on if you tuned to the correct frequency. And PCR can never do that with large complicated molecules, only small ones…
And you can get whatever results you want by your choice of what protein to look for. I think this part also needs to be disclosed by labs– WHAT protein(s) is the test searching for, as well as how many cycles the test was run at. And this needs to be somehow certified by a non-corrupt regulator to ensure the test is actually searching for what the company says it is. Given that these tests have the ability to create a massive fake pandemic, you would think the quality of the tests would be of the utmost importance.
Really, the PCR ‘test’ needs to be absolutely banned as a ‘test’ for supposed ‘viruses.’
None of which is going to happen… The fraudulent tests are too useful to the virology-vaccinology industry, the ‘public health’ bureaucracy, wanna-be tryants, etc for controlling the population through fear.
Because of the vagaries of testing I usually look at deaths for more reality. I find that, adjusted for population, the world over the US death rate is actually worse than many less vaccinated. For Example in Portugal the 7 day avg is between 1 and 2 per day for a population of 11 million vs about 400 in the US with 325 million. That is about 6 times better than the US. Even India only has a normalized rate about 15% worse than the US but is portrayed as a horror show in the media, death rates portrayed without context. The recent death rates in the US are on the order of those in late summer of 20 when we were in full alarm and panic. It seems that we have simply decide to declare victory and move on.
Meanwhile countries like India and Portugal have studies showing effective treatment and prophylactic use of Ivermectin, reporting of which is being aggressively censored in the US.
If in fact the CDC were perpetrating a fraud like you suggest my guess is to give the public confidence in the vaccine program.
Why don’t you ever run stories about Governor DeSantis in Florida firing Rebekah Jones the data analyst for refusing to doctor the COVID numbers? He even called the police to raid her house. I thought you were all about health freedom? I guess only when it suits your political preference.
Governor DeSantis did not fire the serial liar and perpetually troubled Rebekah Jones. Her supervisor did and for good reason.
The date of ‘the vaccine reaction’ article, ‘Corona cases plummet when…’ is September 29, 2020.
That is three months before the Pfizer vaccine was given emergency approval. So, well before the vaccine rollout.
Also, you don’t appear to have provided a CDC reference which shows its previous guidance specifying a higher CT threshold.
The CDC seems to have perfected the art of not just gas lighting, but of talking out if both sides of their mouth. That have the gall to try claiming the vaccine is contributing to a decline in “cases” while at the same time, admitting that running the PCR test properly would do the same thing.
I don’t trust the CDC and their ‘statistics’. Like Mark Twain once said, “There are lies, dam*ed lies and statistics.”
The number of cases and CoV-2 related deaths is impossible to know with any accuracy. This is because there are no accepted standards for the PCR tests, and that even assumes these tests can differentiate CoV-2 from other viruses. Thus it is easy to ramp cases up or down according to cycle settings, of which the public is not allowed to know. There is no surveillance or overseeing of the process as labs are free to do whatever they want. Therein lies the bases for creating a fake pandemic.
Are the Covid injections saving us? This is a dumber than dumb question. This is because we have not defined CoV-2 because we have no absolute testing methods. The injections have never been properly tested in trials as the only common denominator is that these potion present high RRR rates, or relative risk reduction, which is only the percentage change between the control groups of who and who did not get an infection. Then again, without proper testing methods, that is impossible to know within any trial study or group who actually got CoV-2.
Without any long term data over several years, we cannot know who is or isn’t being “saved” from a virus. You may escape it today but not a year from now. So how can we determine if someone is saved? Using the exact measure of risk from the rather incomplete and fictionalized trial data, the ARR, or absolute risk reduction is 1%…not in the 90% range as advertised by the pharma companies. This is actually true for many drugs. Meaning that out of 100, 150, or 200 people, only one less person has gotten the virus after taking the injection verses those who did not get any injection. Again, it boils down to having a standardized, competent 99% effective testing method…and PCR tests ain’t it. So what is?
can’t trust’em. they lie.
So much BS to make everything “look” just as they want it to “look” for the best leveraging of public mentality.
The count of success of so-called vaccines can not be accurate…. I know several people that had the virus and also got the so+called vaccine…after healing… Just because its advised! So those vaccine numbers are majority of people that actually already had virus…. Not because the So -called vaccines are successful.
I would go farther than this– the fact is, this supposed ‘virus’ ‘sars-cov-2’ was never found, isolated, or proven to exist, so how could you test for it legitimately if you’ve never found it?
Even if it did exist, the PCR tests are a complete fraud because they can’t ‘find’ a whole ‘virus’ but only small proteins (‘sars-cov-2’ is supposedly 30,000 bases). Which means the results were always going to be bogus (note that the inventor of the PCR manufacturing technique, Mullis, never wanted it used for this ‘purpose’). And there are hundreds of these ‘tests’ which are completely unregulated and are searching for what proteins, exactly? Depends on who made each test…
Imagine if the test is primed to look for a human snot protein– it will return a fake positive result for ‘sars-cov-2.’
Then there’s the issue of the number of cycles used in running the tests, which is another way to fake the results (as the CDC is doing with vaccinated people now). Turn the cycles down far enough, no positive results…
I think this whole epic ‘covid’ scam is built on the fake fraudulent tests, because those produce the fake ‘positive cases’ that fuel the fake pandemic numbers and the real fear and hysteria and all the other nonsense that follows.
And, of course, fear of ‘the virus’ (whichever virus of the moment people are hysterical about) is used to control the population into begging to have their rights taken away and to be injected with insane experimental poison ‘treatments’ (vaccines)…
This scam has been repeated many, many times in the past… The root of the problem is virology-vaccinology and the willingness of people to be fooled by it.
Great article. Does anyone know if Canada is following the same shift in guidelines for testing and reporting?
Why did we have a multi billion dollar government agency called the CDC with over 50 years of experience manage this crisis without a plan? It was a on the job medical training exercise with dire consequences. Isn’t it time we start asking questions? Why was there no best practice for medical treatment established early on. Why did they allow those with Covid be treated in Nursing homes? Why did they negate any treatment that physicians on their own found to work? Why did they over program the PCR testing to 40 cycles? Why did they expand the definition of how people die? Why have they ignored the voices of 100’s of thousands of medical professionals around the world that expressed their views on how to better mange the crisis. Why are minors being pushed to be vaccinated when their ability to beat the Covid is almost 100%? Why are they down playing the side effects of the mRNA that is harming 1000;’s.including deaths beyond 5000 in the USA? What is their true agenda and why?
THE NEXT HUMAN
In April 2017 the National Geographic Magazine published an article discussing the evolution of man and where we are going and what he may look like.
The question that must be asked is: Is the mRNA injections that reprogram cellular function the first step in this evolution of man? The Medicine man has created a man-made gain of function virus that was released onto the world stage and has severely harmed the economic balance of societies around the world and has destroyed lives. In turn, the medicine man has decided that the only way to stop this scourge on society is to create a man made viral like substance that when injected into the human body reprograms how the cells perform their function. Fighting fire with fire and ignoring the role that a vibrant and whole immune system does in protecting humans from the ever-present viruses in its many forms and pathogens that we are surrounded with in our daily lives. Rather that boost and enhance the immune system of those inflicted, the medicine man has denied that any thing but an injection of a mRNA viral like substance that reprograms cellular function is the answer.
What is emerging from the mass mRNA Experimental injections which is not a vaccine is the fact that the man-made mRNA substance CANNOT be controlled and contained within a specific cellular site such as muscle cells. It migrates into heart cells, brain cells and the reproductive cells that have specific focused cellular functions to keep the human alive and functioning according to God’s design which is now being altered by the medicine man without any knowledge of what the long-term impact will have on the future of man’s existence on earth.
Reports of the harm being done continues to increase in volume and is being reported primarily on the web because the mass media has chosen not to inform and educate, but to be the recipient of the multi-multi- million-dollar PR campaign to convince all humans that the injection is the only way to prevent death from the Covid.
The underutilized adverse reaction reporting system called VAERS which is managed by the FDA is now reporting deaths from the injections is greater than all deaths reported from vaccines over the last 15 plus years. Instant deaths are being reported as well as spontaneous abortions and heart failure. All being ignored by the medicine men as they press on with their goal of injecting everyone with the support of the political system in the US as well as around the world.
The greatest crime against humanity is that our children are being used as lab animals and being injected without any concern that their ability to reproduce will be erased or limited when they mature. Why our religious leaders and the medical ethicists have remained silent is beyond my comprehension.
Why does man believe he can improve on God’s design of the human body? We continually ignore that man’s lifestyle issues are the root cause of the majority of man’s ills and rather that stop the root causes that have created a bloated medical industry we continually look for cures that are patentable, profitable and proprietary and generate profit for the creative medicine men. The Covid mRNA injection is just the first of many more that are on the drawing boards of Big Pharma.
There may not be a Next Human if we unleash a gain of function biological warfare virus that is unstoppable. The earth may be renewed without us. It may be God’s design.
My thoughts for the day.
There is still light in the world, if u look for it:
Thank God for NVIC.
FREEDOM of VACCINATION CHOICE No Matter What!
The current Covid virus has NEVER been properly isolated……Get the true scientists to confirm this.
How can any test be trusted if the virus cannot be first isolated?
Consequently the tests provide a mismash of False Positives 89%-95%.
These fraudulent results have then been used to literally put the fear of death into the populations worldwide……Creating a state of mass hysteria.
Hand picked bought and paid for academics have picked up the baton and latched onto non scientific solutions to a problem that mirrors a below average seasonal flu outbreak.
Lockdowns do not work….Except prevent active opposition and a forbearance of all civil rights to free assembly.
Social distancing is a mumbo jumbo measure…..Question:Has everybody been celibate since the pandemic has been declared?
Mask Wearing has been called out as dangerous and self harm ,and is a way of muzzling the public.
This Scamdemic should be exposed at all levels.
The leaders who planned this outrage, should face charges of crimes against humanity:
Long Prison terms to reflect on their psychopathic tendencies,and divested of all their illgotten gains,which should be used directly to compensate the multitudes harmed by the under reported adverse side effects of this rushed jab job.The Big Pharma bonanza
Together with the complicit academics and politicians and those who will cry and wring their hands and quote the infamous:-
“I WAS ONLY FOLLOWING ORDERS”
I monitor covid infection and deaths in IL.
I calculated death rate by divideing last week’s death with the positive infection 2 to 3 weeks prior.
In April 2021 the death rate dropped below 1%
In June it came back up and higher.
July 8 it jumped to over 2× the nominal 1.4%. I wandered what was happening.
I didn’t expect lies because they stopped report on TV.
This also explained why the Olympic althies test – here and + in Japan.
Also with bad tests infection will spread.
