The official explanation for the COVID pandemic is a dangerous, infectious virus. This is the rationale for isolating a large portion of the world’s population in their homes so as to curb its spread. While the official COVID narrative has been accepted as fact by almost everyone, there are a vocal minority of commentators who argue that the COVID pandemic is a hoax and some who argue that COVID is not even a real disease. According to author and investigative journalist, David Icke, COVID does not exist and the fake pandemic is a being used as an excuse to exert more control over our lives and to introduce vaccination programmes, which he argues can cause serious health issues. David Icke says: “[The global power elite] have coordinated the most extraordinary situation in which a virus which has never been shown to exist could lock down and enslave almost the entirety of humanity simply because the majority believe what they’re told without question”. Meanwhile, American author and holistic psychiatrist, Kelly Brogan, has been very vocal in speaking out about COVID. She doesn’t believe the existence of COVID either, saying there is “potentially no such thing as the coronavirus”.
Molecular biologist, Andrew Kaufman, has arrived at similar conclusions about the non-existence of COVID and has said that the existence of viruses have never been proven. You can see an interview with Kaufman in the video here in which he explains his reasoning. Instead, he says that viral diseases are the result of improper nutrition, toxins, and electromagnetic radiation. Kaufman says that the COVID pandemic is a “completely manufactured crisis” and says that “no confirmation of the virus’ existence can be found”. Similar to Kaufman, according to German virologist, Stefan Lanka, not only does the COVID virus not exist, but viruses in general do not exist. In his article ‘The Misconception Called Virus’, Lanka says that there is “no such thing as pathogenic viruses”. He says, “claims about the existence of viruses are based on historic misinterpretations” and “the real causes of disease which are ascribed to viruses have already been discovered and researched”. Lanka says that “a virus has never been isolated according to the meaning of the word isolation and it has never been photographed and biochemically characterized as a whole unique structure”.
In 2015, Lanka became famous for winning a German Supreme Court ruling upholding his claim that the measles virus has never been proven to exist, and thus, is not something for which children need to be vaccinated. Regarding the existence of viruses, Lanka goes on to say: “All scientists who think they are working with viruses in laboratories are actually working with typical particles of specific dying tissues or cells which were prepared in a special way. They believe that those tissues and cells are dying because they were infected by a virus. In reality, those prepared tissues and cells are dying because they were starved and poisoned as a consequence of the experiments in the lab. The death of tissue and cells — on account of starvation and poisoning and not because of an alleged infection — has continuously been misinterpreted as evidence for the existence of viruses, as evidence for their isolation and as evidence of their propagation”.
According to Kaufman, various diseases that are blamed on viruses are actually caused by improper nutrition and toxins. One example of a disease being erroneously blamed on a virus was the Zika outbreak in Brazil which was traced back to the use of a novel pesticide used for the control of mosquito populations in Brazilian drinking water (Parens et al 2017).1 Another example is the Polio outbreak. The Polio outbreak occurred immediately following unprecedented DDT usage. The graph here shows the correlation between Polio cases and DDT usage. As DDT was introduced Polio cases soared and as it was eventually phased out, cases of Polio began to rapidly decline. The Polio outbreak is another example of a disease being erroneously blamed on a virus. As Morton Biskind says: “Central nervous system diseases such as Polio are actually the physiological and symptomatic manifestations of the ongoing government and industry sponsored inundation of the world’s populace with central nervous system poisons”. While DDT was banned, we’re still bombarded with pesticides in our food today and the scientific literature documents elevated risk of disease among those exposed to pesticides (Owens et al 2010).2
In his book ‘The Contagion Myth’, Thomas Cowan supports the views of Lanka and Kaufman and explains why viruses are not the cause of any disease, denies the germ theory of disease (which says that infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms in the body) and gives alternative explanations to what causes disease, such as improper nutrition, toxins, and electromagnetic radiation. Cowan says that we will soon see a paradigm shift when it comes to viruses; that viruses are not harmful, but helpful exosomes that our cells produce to rid the body of poisons and help make adjustments to environmental threats. Writing along similar lines, in his book ‘What Really Makes You Ill’, David Parker rejects the medical establishment’s explanation for disease and refutes the germ theory of disease, denying that “germs”, bacteria and viruses cause disease. Parker says: “[The mainstream explanation] claims that viruses are the cause of many diseases, as if this has been definitively proven. But this is not the case; there is no original scientific evidence that definitively demonstrates that any virus is the cause of any disease”.
In his book ‘The Invisible Rainbow‘, Arthur Firstenberg points out that since the early 1900s, virologists have attempted to prove the contagiousness of viral diseases, such as influenza, but all such experiments have failed. In the book, Firstenberg says: “The embarrassing secret among virologists is that from 1933 until the present day there have been no experimental studies proving that influenza — either the virus or the disease — is ever transmitted from person to person”. The book explains that when investigating the Spanish flu outbreak, the Boston Health Department attempted to infect people by exposing them to the mucus from those who were suffering from the flu. One of their experiments included taking hundreds of people with the flu and sucking the mucus out of their nose and injecting it into healthy people who didn’t have the flu. Not one time could they make the next person sick. They did this over and over again and were not able to demonstrate contagion. In his book ‘The Contagion Myth’, Thomas Cowan explains the conclusion of the experiments, saying: “The Spanish flu was not contagious and physicians could attach no blame to the accused [virus]”.
There are a number of other researchers that provide a corroboration of the assertion that the virus theory lacks evidence. For example, the Australian Perth Group proved scientifically that the existence of the HIV virus has not been demonstrated, saying: “One has no choice but to conclude that whatever HIV is, it is not the virus that causes AIDS, or even is it a real virus”. This is supported by German molecular biologist Peter Duesberg, who claims that AIDS is actually caused by illicit drug abuse and antiretroviral medications (Duesberg et al 2009).4 In his book ‘Imparied Health’, John Tilden explains the real cause of measles, which is not caused by a virus, saying: “Measles is the manner in which a child’s body throws off toxemia. When children are cared for improperly, they become toxemic and their skin eliminates toxin to a greater degree than does the skin of grown people”. Meanwhile, in the book ‘Virus Mania’, by Torsten Engelbrecht, he explains how various diseases blamed on viruses (from HIV, to Hepatitis C, to the Spanish flu virus) can be explained by other causes and there is no real proof of the existence of these viruses; see excerpts from the book here, here and here.
One of the main reasons as to why people think SARS-CoV-2 exists (the proper name for the COVID virus) is because it has been photographed under an electron microscope. But are the electron microscope images really that of a virus? According to a paper published in August 2020 in the journal Kidney360 (Cassol et al 2020) the alleged images of SARS-CoV-2 that have been spread throughout the scientific community and unquestionably accepted as a new virus, are not that of a virus.5 The researchers saw indistinguishable SARS-CoV-2 structures in people with no evidence of the alleged COVID disease and in samples taken before COVID even occurred. It turns out that the alleged images of SARS-CoV-2 that are referenced as evidence for the virus’ existence are just a common protein coating on normal vesicles, picking up dyes in the electron microscope preparation. In all cases that they examined, they found structures indistinguishable to what is being called SARS-CoV-2. They are not viruses, but normal cell particles. Thomas Cowan gives a breakdown of the paper here.
Regarding the isolation of SARS-CoV-2, the authors of the book ‘Virus Mania’ asked the researchers of various papers that allegedly isolated the virus if their electron microscope photographs showed the purified virus. They had numerous replies here, and in not one instance did the researchers say that they purified isolated SARS-CoV-2. Even Michael Laue from one of the world’s most important representatives of the COVID pandemic, the Robert Koch Institute, wrote in September 2020: “I am not aware of a paper which purified isolated SARS-CoV-2”. The main objective in the isolation and purification of viruses is the separation of the virus from the host tissues and cell organelles and is important for interpretation of whether the RNA obtained is contributed solely by a virus or something else.6 The authors of ‘Virus Mania’ conclude: “If no such particle purification has been done anywhere, how can one claim that the RNA obtained is part of a viral genome? And how can such RNA then be widely used to diagnose infection with a new virus? We have asked these two questions to numerous representatives of the official COVID narrative, but nobody could answer them”.
Others have also investigated the lack of evidence for the isolation of SARS-CoV-2, casting doubt over its existence. Christine Massey, a popular Canadian activist, and a colleague of hers in New Zealand, Michael Speth, submitted FOIA requests to dozens of science institutions and official bodies around the world, seeking any evidence that describes the isolation and purification of SARS-CoV-2. She had numerous replies here, but none were able to provide any such evidence. Massey concludes on her website: “Freedom of Information laws reveal that no institution has registered the isolation and purification of SARS-CoV-2”. The lack of evidence for the isolation of SARS-CoV-2 has been corroborated by some officials in government institutions. In January 2021, the American television network NBC broadcasted a documentary in which there was an interview with Chief of Epidemiology of the Centers for Disease and Control of China, Wu Zunyou. It is an extensive documentary, in which after some exterior shots of the Wuhan market, the journalist asks why they didn’t share the data on SARS-CoV-2 found in the samples taken in December 2019, to which Zunyou replies: “They didn’t isolate the virus. That’s the issue”.
One way to gauge if COVID exists is to see if the arrival of COVID has impacted the death rate. Upon downloading data from the CDC, Genevieve Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths in the United States for 2020; see the article here. Quote: “Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September which includes the period from before COVID arrived in the United States to when COVID rates soared. Surprisingly, the deaths of the elderly were the same before and following COVID. Since COVID mainly impacts the elderly, experts expected an increase in the percentage of deaths in older age groups. However, this increase is not seen from the CDC data. In fact, the percentages of deaths among all age groups remain relatively the same”. If there was a new deadly virus killing people, mortality should have increased over the baseline. But it hasn’t! Ergo, COVID isn’t a real killer disease, but a compendium of statistically contrived deaths. These contrived deaths exist because if you die for any reason within about 28 days of a positive COVID test then you are included in the official COVID death count, as the BBC acknowledge in their report here.
❝There is no evidence of anyone dying from any novel illness❞
Andrew Kaufman, London Real
If SARS-CoV-2 does not exist (as the death rate and the lack of evidence for the isolation and purification would seem to suggest) then why are people testing positive? As of 2021, the PCR test is the most used method of determining if someone has COVID and it works by analyzing genetic sequences (a sample of DNA or RNA) taken from a swab from the sinus cavity. However, the genetic sequences that the PCR test analyzes for SARS-CoV-2 are found naturally in the human body which means anyone can test positive; see the article by Salud here. Quote: “The genetic sequences used in PCRs to detect suspected SARS-CoV-2 and to diagnose cases of illness and death attributed to COVID-19 are present in dozens of sequences of the human genome itself and in those of about a hundred microbes. And that includes the initiators or primers, the most extensive fragments taken at random from their supposed “genome” and even the so-called “target genes” allegedly specific to the “new coronavirus”. The test is worthless and all “positive” results obtained should be scientifically invalidated and communicated to those affected. Stephen Bustin, one of the world’s leading experts on the PCR, says that under certain conditions anyone can test positive”.
The PCR also uses something called ‘amplification’ which means taking an exceptionally small sample of DNA and amplifying it to a large enough amount to analyze. It amplifies the DNA in cycles. PCR commonly uses 20 cycles of amplification and each cycle doubles the target DNA. Excessive PCR cycling can produce false positive results through the amplification of either contaminating DNA or DNA with similar sequences. For example, a September 2020 study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases (Rita Jaafar et al 2020)7 revealed that when you run a PCR test at a cycle of 35 or higher, accuracy drops to 3%, giving a 97% false positive rate. Yet tests recommended by the World Health Organization were set to 45 cycles, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Prevention recommended 40. Meanwhile, an April 2020 study published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (Bernard Scola et al 2020)8 showed that to get 100% confirmed real positives, the PCR test must be run at 17 cycles. Above 17 cycles, accuracy drops dramatically. By the time you get to 33 cycles, the accuracy rate is a mere 20%, meaning 80% are false positives, as illustrated by the graph here.
When speaking about the amplification cycles for the PCR test, Reiner Fuellmich, who is a member of the German Corona Investigative Committee, said: “Anything over 35 cycles is — as reported by the New York Time and others — considered completely unreliable and scientifically unjustifiable. However, the Drosten test, as well as the World Health Organization recommended tests that followed his example were set to 45 cycles. Can that be because of the desire to produce as many positive results as possible and thereby provide the basis for the false assumption that a large number of infections have been detected?” In July 2020, Anthony Fauci, who is an American physician serving as the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was on a podcast where they speak about the PCR tests and how a positive test using a cycle greater than 35 is worthless. Fauci uses the phrase “replication incompetent” which basically means junk (see here for the video-clip with Fauci talking about how the PCR test is useless above a cycle of 35).
In his book ‘Perceptions Of A Renegade Mind’, David Icke argues that SARS-CoV-2 does not exist and explains how the genome sequence for the virus was essentially created on a computer. Quote: “What they are calling COVID is actually created by a computer program, i.e. they made it up — that’s it. They took some lung fluid, with many sources of genetic material, from one single person alleged to be infected with COVID-19 by a PCR test which they claimed, without clear evidence, contained a virus. They then used several computer programs to create a model of a theoretical virus genome sequence from more than 56 million small sequences of RNA, each of an unknown source, assembling them like a puzzle with no known solution. The computer filled in the gaps with sequences from bits in the Genebank to make it look like a cornonavirus”. As Kaufman says here: “They use computer modelling to essentially create a new genome from scratch”.
❝There is no virus, other than a digital, theoretical abstraction made on a computer from a genomic database❞
In his book ‘Slave to the Technium’, Gregory Garrett also raises doubts over the existence of COVID, saying: “There is no COVID-19 virus. If you ask any scientist to show you scientifically verified proof that it exists, they will not be able to show you. Given that it has not been scientifically established that the COVID-19 virus exists, it is therefore clear that everything being done supposedly in the effort to tackle the virus is being done for another purpose and COVID is being used to conceal this. However, with the elite-driven narrative being endlessly promoted by the World Health Organization, governments, and pharmaceutical industries, along with the corporate media, the truth is being obliterated”. If SARS-CoV-2 does not exist (as the death rate and the lack of evidence for the isolation and purification would seem to suggest) then what’s the purpose of all the anti-COVID measures? Do the lockdowns, mandatory face-masks, social distancing and quarantine regulations, really serve to protect us from a deadly virus or do these measures, as Leon Gumm says, serve “only to make people panic so they believe without asking questions that their lives are in danger so they can be controlled and manipulated into giving away their freedoms”.
