I have heard the claim that the PCR at high amplification may also produce a positive result when fragments of the virus are left over, after initial infection. Not sure if this is verified or not, but I have seen this in the hospital when someone tests positive for a month or more after infection, and possibly even after a 'common' coronavirus (cold).
As for the rest, time will tell. Those of us that are skeptical may be entirely wrong, partly wrong, or right, same as for the other side of the table.
In regards to the poster who asked me to be respectful of science as well as my patients, I will say that I AM respectful of science. I am respectful of the fact that some of science is theory, not absolute. I remain skeptical of certain aspects of this pandemic. Some, not all. There are many out there who would attack me in kind for not believing in evolution, but believing in creation. Evolution is also science. All of us cherry pick to some extent, don't we?
