He is right. Ever wonder why there is barely any Corona case in China? Because of the advanced PCR Test. Analyzing more than just one Genetic Sequence and not more than 24 cycles.
A positive PCR Test doesn't mean you are contagious or even sick. That's a truth. You can ask any doctor about that.

The virus is BS too

Oh, so now he's a scientist too?

He's right. Those testings didn't really test which thing is tested. You should check the chromosome instead of just random checking with some tools made from China, origin of where this virus coming from!

I expected a more mature response from him, and language. Why not take another test, and/or a different one. Given the risks of covid and a relatively low chance of a false positive why not just take it like a champ and self isolate. He is young and fit and may not show symptoms but infect many others.

Yes, it's frustrating when it gets personal! But other famous sports stars haven't reacted in this manner. Deep down he must know he needs to self-isolate when there is a risk of infecting others who may be more vulnerable. Not least his own mother who suffered a stroke earlier this year.

Ronaldo is surprisingly smart. Certainly is the PCR Test complete bullshit. It determines a virus infection even if the person only has completely harmless parts of the visrus in the sample. That is well know and this problem has occured before, but ... You make of this whatever you want.

Well, that will land well in this country. People adore him. However, the Government will not be so happy and he'll soon be censored. Many, yes many people who test positive have no symptoms. But reports only talk about 'cases', which is false info. Result is that this country goes down the hill quickly. More people in many countries all around the world open their eyes to what's really going on. In the end our Government should be held accountable.
