How did Kary Mullis discover PCR

The PCR test positives: are they really infected?

Quotation from Nobel laureate Kary Mullis, inventor of the PCR test: “With PCR, if you do it well, you can find pretty much everything in everyone.” - “The measurement is not exact.” - “PCR is a process that consists of something does a lot. It doesn't tell you that you are sick. And it doesn't say that the thing that is found has harmed you. "We need other standards, such as the occupancy of hospital intensive care beds with corona patients.

The numbers and the assignment at the RKI

What is this here, here you go?
"The number of registered new infections with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has reached a maximum in Germany. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the health authorities reported 6,638 cases in 24 hours from today."
What 24 hours are we talking about? Lt. "Dashboard" there were cases with the reporting date yesterday, 10/14/20, 3047, plus yesterday's illness date 38.
As "newly reported on October 14th" will there be a total of 4010 cases for 10/14/20 ?! specified, 2169 for October 13th, 300 for October 12th, 15-40 for each day of the last week, some for many days back to mid-September and at least one for March 14th, 2020.
If only we could at least achieve a more detailed description of the development of the number of infections here in the Ärzteblatt (if this designation applies).

Furthermore: "The previous record number was reached on March 28th with 6,294 new infections." NOT CORRECT! The highest number of cases reported to the health department was on April 2nd, 2020 with 6554. The highest number with a validated date of illness (5003) or, alternatively, the date of the first report (483) to the health department was March 16, 2020 - the day on which the schools started and before 23.03. everything was "locked down". The highest number of "new infections" - as the term is used here - must have been a week earlier.
There is talk of "exponential growth" again - based on the data received by the RKI. Prof. Wieler should please look at his numbers first, then talk. Then he should notice that since last week, October 7th. there are no "increases", rather the reported cases are stagnating. Please do not put the exponential function in the case list with the date of receipt at the RKI again. This is going to be nonsense.

Speaking of which: If 3047 and 38 cases were reported yesterday or reported as sick, how could 4010 cases have been reported to the RKI for yesterday? Questions that only the RKI can answer. Sorry That's not how it works.

Nobel Prize winner Kary Mullis, inventor of the PCR test

Important historical document.
The speaker will be Nobel Prize winner Kary Mullis, inventor of the PCR test - who died of pneumonia in 2019.
"I don't think you can abuse PCR. But the results, the interpretation of them."

"With PCR, if you do it well, you can find pretty much anything in anyone."
"One way to abuse it is to claim that the find is of particular importance."

"The measurement is not exact."

"PCR is a process that makes a great deal of something ... it doesn't tell you that you are sick. And it doesn't say that the thing that is found did you harm."
