Missing Chinese study about CoViD19

Recommended Posts

Mello_

"The results were peer-reviewed and published in the Chinese Journal of Epidemiology on March 5th, 2020. The data-driven conclusion of the study was that “nearly half or even more” of patients testing positive for SARS-COV-2 did not actually have the virus. In other words, half of the results were false positives."

Psst...obviously there are things we cant say about this madness.

Lets not forget that:

“The only means to fight the plague is honesty.” Albert Camus, The Plague (1947)

They would withdraw it if the test itself was inaccurate.  I think that this is the case.

How do you know that test was inaccurate? It was peer reviewed. Or you want to say that sometimes we have holes in process of peer review?

Peer review does not do what you might think it does. The accuracy of the test is not something that the peer review process gets into.

The goal of peer review is to make sure that the study is well laid out, described well, follows procedures, and the conclusions follow from the experiment. Of course that is just some of the things they do.

There's so much stuff yet to learn about the virus. Here in Quebec, we learned that the first round of test were giving about 25% false negative...

We not even know know if it will act like the Herpes or hepatitis and stay present in infected people to come back later.

No vaccine have been made for corona type virus. The covid-19 is just one of many, and not the only one affecting human.

Lack of knowledge is the main reason why we need to be careful.

The reports author was contacted about the withdrawal of the paper, and merely said "it is a sensitive subject". Make of that what you will. Sensitive to The State ?
