Are The New Waves of Infection Real? Is Testing for Covid-19 Accurate?
We have now learned that the test does not identify the whole virus, just a segment. In addition, many other viruses, bacteria, and even some things that are not microorganisms at all can yield a positive test. For instance, the president of Tanzania secretly had a sheep, a goat, and pawpaw (a type of fruit) tested using PCR by his health department. The goat and the pawpaw both tested positive.

This explains why there were only a few hundred flu cases reported in the entire U.S. this past season — a number unprecedented in modern times.
