NOQ Report has been questioning the accuracy of both the coronavirus tests now being widely administered as well as the numbers coming from various government and non-government agencies regarding the pandemic. Death rates and infection rates appear from multiple angles to be extremely exaggerated and reports of false positives have been rolling in for months. Now, a quarterback in the NFL is one of the latest victims of this phenomenon.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who is arguably the best player on the team, tested positive for COVID-19. He was instantly placed on injured reserve and isolated from his family, including his wife who had brain surgery last year. But it turns out the test was wrong. Kelly Stafford took to Instagram to vent her anger.
Lions star QB Matthew Stafford was removed from the NFL’s COVID-IR list on Tuesday, but not after a false-positive test by the league turned his family’s life upside down.
“The past four days have been somewhat of a nightmare,” wrote Stafford’s wife, Kelly. “We were all tested the day after and we were all negative, including Matthew…then he tested negative again, then again, again and again.”
Shortly before her Instagram post, Kelly posted a story that simply said, “I am about to lose my s–t.”
Last year, Kelly had surgery to remove a brain tumor. According to the CDC’s guidelines, she would be classified as high risk if she contracts the coronavirus. The Lions posted a statement Tuesday afternoon saying Stafford is back on the roster after receiving a false positive test.
“I have been losing my mind because of how my Family has been treated since my husband was put on the Covid-IR list,” said Kelly, who has four children with Matt. “Even after we knew it was a false positive, I was approached in a grocery store told I was ‘endangering others,’ my kids were harassed and kicked off a playground, I was told I needed to wait in my car when trying to pick up food, and people closest to us had to get tested just so they could go back to work… and that’s just to name a few things.”
This case is neither isolated nor acceptable. Testing positive for COVID-19 can be life-changing for many. Are the numbers inflated? Are the tests tainted? Is there something more nefarious happening than simple mistakes?
COVID-19 may take down an indepentent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
