He claimed that patients’ test results often come up as false negatives before they are actually diagnosed with the .

“It can fool the — there were cases that they found, the CT scan shows both lungs are fully infected but the test came back negative four times,” the whistle-blower said. “The fifth test came back positive.”

The article also reported that some medication used to treat the virus can have negative side-effects on heart tissue, making patients more susceptible to cardiac arrest.

“A few people recovered from the first time by their own immune system, but the meds they use are damaging their heart tissue, and when they get it the second time, the antibody doesn’t help but makes it worse, and they die a sudden death from heart failure,” he added.
