Beijing Olympics lowers COVID testing standards, otherwise, there would be no Olympics

How convenient when a bureaucratic body has the power to switch COVID standards at the drop of a hat in order to allow it to continue moving forward and not shut down as the rest of us have been forced to do. COVID Standards around testing and quarantine rules are going from asinine and impossible to achieve to almost gone in the blink of an eye. Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last week he was doing away with all COVID precautions from vaccine mandates to mask wearing, and instead, would rely on the judgement of its citizens to protect themselves.

Now, the Beijing Olympics organizers and Chinese authorities are lowering the threshold for athletes to participate in the upcoming games. Likely, they realize that just like all other aspects of the world, the mandates and expectations are shutting down businesses and industries left and right.

Specifically, China has lowered the threshold for producing a negative COVID-19 test for participants as they arrive for the Winter Games which will begin next week on February 4th. In a statement, organizers said:

“In order to adapt to the reality of the current environment and further support of Games participants, Beijing 2022 and the Chinese authorities, in consultation with medical experts and IOC, refined countermeasures with the following changes effective 23 January 2022.”

The concern was that athletes could test negative in their home countries after recovering from COVID-19 but still test positive upon their arrival in China, reported the Wall Street Journal. That’s because their testing standards were “tougher than those used by many sports leagues in the U.S. and Europe.”

The CBC reports the communication was sent out by Beijing 2022 on Sunday explaining it was dropping the cycle threshold (Ct) value from 40 to 35. Anyone with a PCR result of less than 35 will be considered positive. The higher the Ct value, the less infectious a person with COVID-19 is. The CBC also reports:

Further changes include that if a positive participant spends 10 days or more in isolation, then that person will be released to their Games time accommodation if they are not displaying any COVID-19 symptoms and if their PCR results have a Ct value greater than or equal to 35 for the past three consecutive days.

Another change is reducing the time in which a person is deemed a close contact, dropping from two weeks to seven days.

“During that period, testing will be carried out twice daily. The close contact will be able to choose whether their PCR test sample is collected as a nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swab,” the communication explained.

All of these changes will be applied immediately and will also apply retrospectively.

A latest video from Project Veritas may be one of the most shocking undercover investigations yet. The video unearths “Pfizer is internally discussing the possibility of mutating the Covid virus themselves in order to taylor a vaccine to sell to the public” Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe explains.

The undercover video has gone viral and already garnered nearly 19 million views. The video begins with a Project Veritas journalist asking Pfizer’s Director of Research and Development Jordon Trishton Walker, “Pfizer ultimately is thinking about mutating COVID?”

Walker responded with a smile, “well, that is not what we say to the public. No.” Walker goes on to say “don’t tell anyone this by the way, you have to promise you won’t tell anyone” obviously unaware he is being recorded.

“We’re exploring like – you know how the virus keeps mutating?” Walker continues. “Well one of the things we’re exploring is like, why don’t we mutate it ourselves so we could – we could create – preemptively develop new vaccines, right?”

In a complete admittance of astronomical greed by the vaccine maker, Walker goes on: “So, we have to do that. If we’re gonna do that though, there’s a risk of like, as you could imagine, no one wants to be having a Pharma company mutating f**king viruses. You have to be like very controlled to make sure that this virus that you mutate doesn’t create something like, you know goes everywhere.”

Walker then goes on to insinuate the coronavirus did in fact start in Wuhan:

“Which, I suspect is the way that the virus started in Wuhan, to be honest. Like it makes no sense that this virus popped out of nowhere.”
