COVID: Is the Virus Real?
SARS-CoV-2. The woo-woo virus.
People who can think and follow a line of reasoning should have a shot at considering the questions:
Did researchers actually discover the virus?
Did their proof fall short?
DID RESEARCHERS DO ENOUGH TO PROVE THE CORONAVIRUS EXISTS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
If someone says that, during the full moon three weeks ago, the moon suddenly turned gold, and then a strange squadron of giants passed across it, on their way to the ocean, do you think it might be a good idea to find out whether, three weeks ago, there was a full moon? Might that be a basic starting point?
That’s what I’m doing. Checking up to see whether there was a full moon.
A rational researcher, at the CDC, if one actually existed, would say, upon hearing of a possible outbreak in the city of Wuhan: “Let’s see the proof that a new virus is responsible, is the causative agent.”
What kind of proof would he be asking for?
First, he would want to know, “Do researchers there have an actual biological specimen of this new virus? Do they have the real thing?”
And if the answer came back yes, he would reply, “We’re sending in one of our Wuhan people so he can confirm that.”
But how would the confirmation work? You can’t just lay a specimen of a virus on a table and shine a light on it.
There is a traditional method of observation. It’s called an electron microscope photograph (an EM). Certain established procedures exist for obtaining an EM from a patient’s tissue sample. The CDC scientist would want to make sure the Chinese scientists had carried out this process correctly.
Rough sketch: From a patient’s tissue sample, you take a small bit and spin it in a centrifuge. The material settles out in layers. Knowing which layer (by density) you’re looking for, you remove a bit from that layer, look at it under an electron microscope and photograph it. If you’ve found a new virus, you should see many identical particles of it in the photo—and, obviously, it should be something you’ve never seen before.
The rational CDC scientist—if one actually existed—would say, “Let’s have a look at the Chinese EM.” He wants to confirm there are many identical particles of the new virus in the EM.
But there is more. And here is where the rubber meets the road and the failure factor is very high. I need to back up a bit to explain.
