45 Cycles

Unable to find an answer to the question that has been bugging me for a while now using internet searches, this morning I decided to resort to the old fashioned telephone method to find out whether the PCR test is what is being used in Ontario to come up with the recent pandemic of scary headlines about "case" numbers in this province.

I also wanted to know what the amplification cycle number is for Ontario PCR tests, given that even St. Fauci has declared that anything more than 35 cycles is utterly useless in determining the presence of the WuFlu.

It took me about an hour and at least six calls to get some answers.

What I found out was rather shocking from more than one angle.

First, and not so shocking, yes, the PCR test is the one used to determine the number of "cases" in Ontario.

Second, and this came as a bit of a shock to me even though it shouldn't have, a tech at an Ontario Lab facility told me that they are using 45 cycles in their PCR tests.


Then I guess he got a bit nervous as happens in Sovietized societies when one realizes that, perhaps, one has said too much and he asked,

"Don't mention that I told you anything about this (nervous laugh.) Okay? Because I am not authorized to give you this information. Okay?"

I told him I understood because people could lose their jobs over this and he said, "That's correct."

As I write this I sure hope he isn't the ONLY tech who works there because I would not want to see him suffer for the crime of telling me the truth.

During another call I made the person on the phone flatly refused to tell me what the cycle value is, advising me instead to ask my physician to obtain that number for me. I told her my physician was probably already quite busy and that I wasn't going to bother her with this. Not to mention that my physician might also be reluctant to become involved in the dissemination of such sensitive information for fear of the repercussions it might have upon their career.

So it turns out that there is probably a good reason, from the point of view, perhaps, of those with an interest in amplifying the COVID fear factor in Ontario, why the PCR cycle value is being treated as though it were some sort of a state secret.

So, until I hear differently, I will use the 45 cycle number for Ontario PCR tests.


Destroying the social and economic life of Ontario on the basis of 45 cycle PCR tests is sheer, destructive lunacy.

  1. Took me all of 30 seconds to find detailed info about the PCR test.
    Giving just anyone a simple answer to a complex question can and should get you fired.

  2. Yeah, that was one of the pages I found in one of my earlier searches. It probably took me only 30 seconds to find as well. Unfortunately, it did not contain the answer to my simple question.

    "Giving just anyone a simple answer to a complex question can and should get you fired."

    But the answer IS simple. The number of cycles is the number of cycles.

    So if I call up the Ministry of Culture and ask someone how to play the guitar, and they answer "just pluck or strum the strings" I can see how your prescription might be applied.

    If on the other hand, I were to ask them how many strings are on a standard guitar, it would be a simple question with a simple answer. It took me about 30 seconds to find an answer to that question, too.
