Understanding PCR Cycle Threshold (Ct) in SARS-CoV-2

Despite the science being clear on the threshold of PCR tests, Public Health England advised that a typical RT-PCR assay will have a maximum of 40 thermal cycles (Ct), this is despite knowing full well that PCR tests run at that threshold and higher produce a 97% chance of a false positive and are not able to distinguish whether an infectious virus is present.

This fact was addressed in the Lisbon Court of Appeal on 11/11/2020 where an international legal precedent was set.

See court ruling below.
