Study: Woman Suffers Brain Injury from COVID Cotton Swab Test

Yesterday, October 1, 2020, a new study was published in JAMA Otolaryngology, documenting one case where a woman suffered a brain fluid leak after doctors punctured the lining during a coronavirus test.

Surgery was required to repair the leak.

The title of the study is Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak After Nasal Swab Testing for Coronavirus Disease 2019.

There is no valid reason for swabbing the naso-pharynx so deeply that it causes pain and injury to the extreme back and roof of the nose. Whatever microorganisms are there are distributed throughout the entire nose and throat. They are supposedly easily communicated by a sneeze, hence the “need” for masks.. You don’t have to go digging for them. You could even blow your nose into a tissue and that would be a sufficient sample to culture.
