Detecting a few fragments of viral RNA does not mean a virus is actually pathogenic

As a follow-up to my previous post, I did find a study that claims to have found Zika in the amnion of two microcephaly cases.

If you actually read this paper however… the small number of fragments found can only be called inconclusive.  In one of the cases, they found only 2 fragments (meaningless) in sample 2, and sample 1 had a few hundred but that was from the amniotic fluid filtrate. It was 0.2% of the total virus particles found. Also not conclusive.

We need brain tissue with hundreds to thousands of virus particles infecting the cells to begin to say anything is causing microcephaly.

I’m reserving judgment still but the fact that they peddle the fear without the evidence makes me think the whole thing is a coverup and vaccine marketing scam.
