Following the Portuguese, German and Dutch rulings, now the Austrian court has ruled that PCR tests are not suitable for COVID-19 diagnosis and that lockdowns has no legal or scientific basis.
The Vienna Administrative Court granted a complaint by the FPÖ against the prohibition of its meeting registered for January 31 in Vienna.
“The prohibition was wrong,” the court said says in the ruling (read judgement below).
The court stated on the basis of scientific studies that the grounds for the prohibition put forward by the Vienna State Police Department are completely unfounded.
The court agrees with the statements in the complaint “on all points” and even goes far beyond the arguments put forward by the FPÖ itself.
In particular, the criteria and definitions used to determine the number of corona infections are being massively questioned.
It is expressly pointed out that, even according to the World Health Organization (which took a u-turn only after Biden took office), “a PCR test is not suitable for diagnosis and therefore does not in itself say anything about the disease or infection of a person”.
“However, the Minister of Health uses a completely different, much broader case definition for Covid-19 diagnosis, which cannot be used to justify the prohibition of a meeting.”
The court came to the conclusion that the “information” from the Vienna City Health Service, on which the prohibition by the Vienna State Police Department was based, “did not contain any valid and evidence-based statements or findings on the pandemic”.
Based on the definitions of the Minister of Health, “Case definition Covid-19” from December 23, 2020, a “confirmed case”
- is any person with evidence of SARS-CoV-2-specific nucleic acid (PCR test), regardless of clinical manifestation or
- any person with evidence of SARS-CoV-specific antigen that meets the clinical criteria or
- any person with evidence of SARS-CoV-specific antigen that meets the epidemiological criteria.
Thus none of the three “confirmed cases” defined by the Minister of Health meets the requirements of the WHO concept of “sick / infected person”. The WHO refuses to rely solely on the PCR test (confirmed case 1).
