The absolutely stunning
DISHONESTY of NZ Ministry
of Health information about
“A positive test tells us that a person either has COVID-19 (whether they have symptoms, or not) or has had COVID-19 recently. We may not be able to distinguish whether the person is currently infectious or not so we will take a precautionary approach.”
Compared to the CDC and the Australian health authorities this is very dishonest. It says it can tell if you have had COVID-19 In the past. Apart from the fact that this virus has only been around for about 8 months the PCR test is just as likely to mean you were exposed to CORONAVIRUS (mostly associated with colds) in the past. We all have these viruses latent in our body.
This advice is a lie compared to what other jurisdictions are saying.
This is from the US CDC.
The Australian health website says something very similar
Covid-19 is a condition and the agent is SARS-covid- 2, yet in the NZ Ministry of Health stuff here it is all, about Covid-19.
To reiterate, the PCR test can only test for coronavirus and can’t tell you if you have covid-19 or not.
