He’d already gone to war with Fauci for misusing his PCR test. Mullis and other scientists said Fauci was magnifying the retrovirus HIV using PCR to “prove” it was the cause of AIDS. Mullis was furious that Fauci refused to debate him on science but argued from authority.
Does this all sound familiar? It’s another reason why this COVID “novel” was not credible from the beginning. In the past, Fauci, CDC, etc, had abused test methods many times to push pandemics and pharmaceuticals.
