The CDC shared a controversial post on Twitter where they confessed that Americans who took the C-19 nasal swab PCR test may have had their DNA harvested.
“Remember that #COVID19 nose swab test you took?” the post reads. “What happened to the swab? If it was processed with a PCR test, there’s a 10% chance that it ended up in a lab for genomic sequencing analysis. Learn more about the process and its importance.”

Website Wired explained how these nose swabs detect new strains of SARS-CoV-2.
The video report stated that the alleged ‘’10%’’ of samples collected are taken in labs for genomic sequencing testing, claiming the scientists only look at the genetic makeup of the virus, not the DNA of the humans.
The sequencing is performed with cooperation between local, state, and federal agencies and academic and clinical labs.
They stated that there’s a 10% chance of samples being tested, but the real number is much higher.
Republican Congresswoman MTG asked: “Did the CDC get permission from people to take their DNA?”
One professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition at Harvard, Albert Ascherio, downplayed the conspiracy that the government or any labs are gathering people’s DNA before admitting it is possible.
“There is no need to test human DNA, but of course, it will be on the swab so it could be tested, which is probably what people may worry about if they are in [a] conspiracy mood,” Ascherio said.
The government would like to build a database of human DNA.
The US government has collected the DNA of every child born in the nation’s hospital for decades now.
ACLU reported, “The DNA of virtually every newborn in the United States is collected and tested soon after birth… It used to be that after the screening was completed, the blood spots were destroyed. Not anymore. Today it is increasingly common for states to hold onto these samples for years, even permanently.”
In December 2019, the Pentagon warned the military personnel not to take mail-in DNA tests.
Forbes asked, “Could this genetic information lead to genetic surveillance, tracking, and grave privacy concerns for military personnel and others who use these kits?”
