All of NFL’s 77 false-positive COVID-19 tests came back negative

The following is from an article by CBS Sports.

The NFL went through one of its biggest COVID-19 scares of training camp after there were 77 positive tests that came about on Saturday. Upon further examination for this spike, however, it was revealed that these were false-positives as Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reports that all of the original tests were rerun on Sunday night and each of them came back negative for the coronavirus. Those 77 individuals also underwent additional testing and all of those tests came back negative as well. 

On Monday, Jon R. Cohen, M.D., the Executive Chairman of BioReference Laboratories, the testing partner of the NFLreleased a statement explaining that these false-positives were due to an isolated contamination in the New Jersey lab. 

“On August 22, BioReference Laboratories reported an elevated number of positive COVID-19 PCR test results for NFL players and personnel at multiple clubs. The NFL immediately took necessary actions to ensure the safety of the players and personnel. Our investigation indicated that these were most likely false positive results, caused by an isolated contamination during test preparation in the New Jersey laboratory. Reagents, analyzers and staff were all ruled out as possible causes and subsequent testing has indicated that the issue has been resolved. All individuals impacted have been confirmed negative and informed.”

Several NFL clubs altered their training camp schedules due to this scare, including the Cleveland Browns, who closed the facility for a brief period of time on Sunday, underwent a thorough deep-cleaning and disinfection before opening it back up later that afternoon. The Bears and Patriots were some of the other clubs that dealt with false-positive COVID-19 test results over the weekend.

  1. Makes me wonder how many of the cases in the US are/were false positives…..not just the NFL …..this whole thing is a sick twisted political farce

  2. There’s something really fishy about all of the botched tests that coincidentally keep happening every time something big is about to happen as far as getting things back to normal. All the mistakes being made counting deaths, like attributing every death to COVID19. This will end eventually, like right after the election, you watch. These people that we trust with our lives, our livelihoods are sinister creeps that need to be exposed for who they are.

    1. I do not think it will end until the GlobalCaps get their vaccines into as many people as possible. Plandemic 2: InDoctorNation covers the story very well. From what I’ve read on LewRockwell, the “Vaccine From Hell” is pretty scary stuff as well.

  3. Bombshell Evidence that COVID RT-PCR Tests for Chromosome 8 Human DNA Primary Assembly

    One of the pieces of genetic material tested for by the 80% false positive, faulty, untested, unapproved, RT-PCR test is our own PRIMARY assembly for our chromosome 8. What this means is they are not finding a virus at all, they are just using a piece of our OWN DNA and telling us it is a virus. Time to take down this FAKE pandemic once and for all. Here is the smoking gun.

  4. Do you ever wonder why, people that read all these blogs and internet news releases, take these reports of the, “new cases, scare”, with a grain of salt? I believe that most of these reports are meant to do exactly that, scare gullible sheeple into compliance with the lefts latest draconian laws, issued, based on phony reports.
