You seem sincere in your posts, but might be missing some clarifying facts.
Kary Mullis invented the PCR testing method in the 80s. He died in August, 2019, which was before the COVID-19 virus was spreading. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kary_Mullis
He could not have developed any COVID-19 test or commented on its accuracy. There are several different PCR tests for COVID-19. Developed by different companies. It's usably accurate, but like all medical tests, is much less accurate than most people think, and maybe as low as 60%. There are also antigen tests which are much faster, but even less accurate. Medical science is not really that precise. That's why they run trials.
And the COVID-19 virus has been isolated and its genome sequenced. Here is just one example. https://mra.asm.org/content/9/11/e00169-20
The mRNA vaccines that were developed relied on the genetic sequence to artificially create an immune response to specific proteins instead of using a weakened natural virus like traditional vaccines.
At least 330 thousand more Americans died in 2020 than in 2019. https://usafacts.org/articles/preliminary-us-death-statistics-more-deaths-in-2020-than-2019-coronavirus-age-flu/
No, its not the millions some projected a year ago. Of course the CDC and government in general is riddled with dishonesty and incompetence. But they also have had to learn along the way, and China wasn't very informative of how the virus started and how it affected their populace. So they have had to muddle through. Of course cases are misclassified. But just the excess deaths is enough to show something is out there, and it is most likely COVID.
Most cases are mild. And even most deaths are likely just pulling them forward for a few years. So we should see corresponding lower deaths the next few years. Young, healthy people don't have much to fear from it. But most of them don't want to spread it to their older and less healthy friends and family. I don't mind all the masks and isolations if it reduces the chance of having my parents die earlier than they would otherwise.
What's the trial number of your company's product? I would like to look it up if you don't mind.
