In the state of Montana, there’s a rumor going around that needs to be addressed. NBC News Montana reported the following:
“Missoula, Gallatin, and Flathead counties have confirmed zero influenza cases so far this season. Health care workers are quick to add it’s still important to be diligent when it comes to hygiene and to get a flu vaccine if you haven’t already.”
To claim the above is downright farcical. What are the odds that “the flu” just disappeared this season?
Gallatin County communications coordinator Whitney Bermes added, “Since March, the Health Department has contracted with labs to test wastewater in Bozeman, Big Sky, Belgrade, Three Forks, and West Yellowstone for the presence of COVID-19. Testing wastewater can be an early warning sign of virus spread in our community. That testing has been done weekly. And while the weekly samples have been positive for COVID-19, we have not had any hits for the flu thus far this flu season.“
Here at Montana Daily Gazette, we want you to know the truth.
Throughout the state of Montana the “Covid-19” tests that are administered come from Abbott Laboratories. A local Flathead County resident did some extensive research and found out that Abbott testing does not just evaluate for CV-19 exclusively, but also multiple coronaviruses as well as MERS, (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome). Therefore, since Covid 19 isn’t an isolated virus according to PCR testing and therefore undetectable who knows what all is being tested?
The publication states, “Because PCR tests are purely qualitative (and not quantitative), this molecular testing technology heretofore has been universally rejected as preliminary diagnostic tools for infection and disease. PCR testing for diagnosis is largely inconclusive.”
In other words, it’s not a great test to identify specific diseases.
Sorry, Montana county health boards…but your statements concerning the absence of flu (in the year of “Covid”) are as embarrassing as your slip showing.
