Short version (synopsis)
- The suspicion that the COVID-19 coronavirus is man-made, that has been in circulation for some time now on the internet, has risen out of the “conspiracy theory” stage to bona fide scientific argument emanating from virologists in Norway who claim this novel mutated virus could only have originated from a laboratory rather than mutated in nature.
- Furthermore, a noted pathologist in eastern Europe, based upon autopsies he has conducted, makes the bold statement that “no one has died from the coronavirus” and that “it is impossible to create a vaccine against the virus” because antibodies specific for COVID-19 have yet to be identified. 18+ years have been spent in failed attempts to produce a coronavirus vaccine.
- In addition, researchers in Romania claim the data shows very few patients solely die of the mutated COVID-19 coronavirus alone and theorize the synergistic combination of a virus + tuberculosis bacterium is the likely reason why some people die a horrid death from COVID-19.
- Finally, The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) have proceeded with lockdown and quarantine measures with no regard for the collateral damage which is devastating countries worldwide, leaving no foreseeable economic future and the possibility of starvation for many millions of people around the world.
Norwegian virologist Birger Sørensen, in an attempt to develop a vaccine, has broken down elements of the COVID-19 coronavirus and have determined the six mutations identified “could not evolve naturally.”
Sørenson’s group focused on parts of the virus that are changing. Certain components of the virus are very well adapted to infect humans. That finding raised suspicion over man-made origins of the virus. This COVID-19 coronavirus exhibits two ways of attaching itself in the respiratory tract of humans. One, the well-known entryway to the lower respiratory tract via ACE-2 receptors on living cells (viruses are not live and must infect a living cell and take over its genetic machinery to replicate), and two, an additional receptor that causes pneumonia. Says Sørenson:
“The structure of the virus cannot have evolved naturally. When we compare the novel (COVID-19) coronavirus with the one that caused (the previous) SARS, we see that there are altogether six inserts in this virus that stand out compared to other known SARS viruses.” Four of those inserts increase human vulnerability to COVID-19 infection.
These changes do not exist in other coronaviruses and can only be produced in a laboratory, he says.
Sørensen: “We know that these properties make the virus very infectious, so if it came from nature, there should also be many animals infected with this, but we have still not been able to trace the virus in nature. … The only place we are aware of where an equivalent virus to that which causes Covid-19 exists, is in a laboratory.” He called this an “inconvenient truth.”
“No one has died from the coronavirus”
Calling the World Health Organization a “criminal medical organization” for creating fear and chaos without objective, verifiable proof of a pandemic, Dr. Stoian Alexov of the Bulgarian Pathology Association says “No one who has died from the coronavirus. I will repeat that: no one has died from the coronavirus.”
That eyebrow-raising statement was followed by a claim that pathologists have not been able to identify any antibodies that are specific for COVID-19, a requirement for the production of vaccines. Dr. Alexov doubts the veracity of reports that antibodies can be used to treat patients. Dr. Alexov’s comments were made at the European Society of Pathology webinar on May 18.
Dr. Alexov says COVID-19 related deaths in Italy were preceded by immunization with the H1N1 flu vaccine that suppresses the immune system, which could have increased lethality.
Dr. Alexov: “Therefore in the absence of monoclonal antibodies to the novel coronavirus, pathologists cannot verify whether the COVID-19 coronavirus is present in the body, or whether the diseases and deaths attributed to it indeed were caused by the virus rather than by something else.”
Dr. Alexov says “COVID-19 is a fatal disease only in exceptional cases, but in most cases it is a predominantly harmless viral infection.”
Dr. Alexov’s statements were published in OFF-GUARDIAN online newspaper and included supportive backing from other health authorities. The director of the Institute of Forensic Medicine at the University Medical Center in Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany also said there is a dearth of solid evidence for COVID-19’s lethality.
A CO-INFECTION BETTER EXPLAINS COVID-19 DEATHS
Accounts of COVID-19 alone having very low lethality may be explained the studies involving co-infections with COVID-19 and other viruses or bacteria (Mycoacteria tuberculosis). There is growing evidence that co-infection with COVID-19 coronavirus and tuberculosis (bacterial) spells trouble for those who are co-infected. A more severe form of TB is postulated when both viral and bacterial infections like these are coincident. The immune system is acutely hampered when individuals are infected by both of these pathogens, say researchers in Romania where TB is at epidemic levels. However, the precise data needed to predict the impact of this co-infection is still in the process of being collected to confirm this association.
It is known that influenza infection may promote the progression of dormant (latent) TB into active infection by hindering the patient’s immune response. T-cell counts (CD4 and CD8) can drop to undetectable levels when TB and coronavirus infections co-exist. Higher TB death rates are reported in winter when influenza outbreaks are common.
The association of COVID-19 coronavirus infections with tuberculosis is gaining scientific traction.
Use of the TB vaccine reduces lethality for COVID-19 coronavirus infections. Drugs used to treat COVID-19 are the same drugs used to treat TB. Mortal outbreaks of COVID-19 coronavirus were geographically centered in areas that had been fighting TB epidemics: Wuhan, China; Modena, Italy; New York City, largely because of immigrant populations or aerosol contamination via wind storms of by TB from pig farms.
Also, co-infection with HIV increases the risk of dying of COVID-19 coronavirus. There are an estimated 13 million Americans with dormant TB; 2 billion worldwide. It appears the fear over COVID-19 coronavirus infection is highly exaggerated except for those who are co-infected.
THE LOCKDOWN WILL KILL MORE THAN THE VIRUS
Collateral damage from draconian measures to control the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus is crushing economies and thrusting whole nations into the threat of extinction due to potential food shortages, shortages of currency and coins, commercial refusal to use legal tender over credit cards, and refusal to work due to fear of infection.
A data analyst in South Africa asserts the consequences of the country’s lockdown will lead to 29-times more deaths than from the coronavirus itself. The report says attempts to save lives from the COVID-19 coronavirus over other causes of death “is a false dichotomy.” While the virus kills, the economy sustains. Attempts to flatten the curve only keeps hospitals from being overwhelmed, it doesn’t reduce body counts. The lockdown actually restricts accessibility to medical care leading to further needless deaths. The poor will suffer severe consequences ahead of the rest of the population in South Africa. Focus on saving the lives of at-risk individuals would be more effective, says the report.
In both New York City and Italy, over 95% of the deaths occurred among individuals with co-morbid conditions (obesity, diabetes, hypertension and autoimmunity). By location and skin color, older infirm patients in nursing homes and dark-skinned individuals, both who have low vitamin D levels, are at greater risk for a mortal outcome. The indiscriminate lockdown of entire populations leads to societal paralysis. South Africa is trading a disease that infects widely but kills narrowly. The lockdown disaster dwarfs the number of deaths due to COVID-19. Lockdown of the healthy in an attempt to save those who are ill could potentially lead to the death of all.
