Harvard Study Suggests Non-Infectious COVID-19 Fragments Can Become Part of Human Cells’ Genomic Infrastructure


Face Masks Can’t Stop These PCR Positive Tests Because it’s Internal to the Body


 PCR “Positive” Test Data is Now Essentially Useless, Fear-Mongering Information

   A new study published as a pre-print, awaiting peer-review, in December, 2020 suggests that viral RNA in some SARS-CoV-2 infected patients can implant itself within the human cells’ molecular RNA and DNA infrastructure which then continually copies those strands of RNA for months.  through a process called viral retro-integration.  While people in this situation will not be infectious and no new, full-fledged virus particles are created, the RNA fragments alone are enough to key a COVID-19 PCR test positive even if the person is not infected and has no actual virus particles in their system.  Under this scenario, face masks and social distancing are irrelevant since the source of the RNA that is triggering the PCR test positive is coming from within the person’s own cells - not from the outside, in the person’s environment.

   The report, entitled, “SARS-CoV-2 RNA reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome1 was published by researchers from Whitehead Institute of Biomedical Research, Harvard University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

   The researchers looked at the continuous or recurrent positive rates of the COVID-19 PCR tests, which have been reported in patients weeks or months after recovery from an initial infection.  After looking at studies with strict quarantine on subjects who recovered from COVID-19, they suggested that the ‘re-positive’ cases were not caused by re-infection.  Furthermore, they found “no replication-competent virus was isolated or spread from these PCR-positive patients.”

   The researchers postulated one of the explanations for a non-infectious, virus-free PCR-positive patient is that “SARS-CoV-2 RNAs could be reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome, and transcription of the integrated DNA copies could be responsible for positive PCR tests.”

   In simple terms, the RNA from COVID-19 becomes a part of the cell’s DNA infrastructure and gets manufactured along with all of the other DNA and RNA segments under normal, routine cellular processes.  These copied RNA fragments then are able to trigger a positive designation in a COVID-19 PCR test - with all of the negative social ramifications that come with it - but there is no virus produced, no sickness and no infectiousness.  Because the source of these RNA particles is from within the person’s own cells - not the outside air - precautionary measures such as face masks and social distancing can be of no use in reducing the likelihood of a positive PCR test for COVID-19 in these people.

   They cited examples of other transcripts integrated into the human genome via the LINE-1 element.

   The researchers further stated, “From an evolutionary perspective, retro-integration of viral RNA by LINE-1 could be an adaptive response by the host to provide sustaining antigen expression possibly enhancing protective immunity.”  But, they caution, “Conversely, retro-integration of viral RNAs could be detrimental and cause a more severe immune response in patients such as a “cytokine storm” or auto-immune reactions.”

   These types of adverse reactions were observed in animal studies during the vaccine trials of the SARS-CoV-1 vaccine in 2003 and duplicated again in 2012. 

   The researchers suggested that using PCR tests to classify someone as positive for carrying infectious forms of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus would be essentially moot because, “the PCR assay may detect viral transcripts from viral sequences stably integrated into the genome rather than infectious virus.”

  Again, this is simply put by stating that the human cells have the COVID-19 RNA integrated into their own cell mechanics and naturally reproduce the RNA strands - not the whole virus - that make a PCR test show positive for COVID-19 where no virus, infection or illness exists.  Therefore, using a PCR test to diagnose for COVID-19 coronavirus disease would be at once misleading and completely useless.

   PCR tests are only designed to detect RNA strands, they are not designed to actually find entire functional viruses.
