Several things claimed in this video are not how things are discovered in science. There is always some uncertainty but it is in the cumulative and
repeated and cross-supporting evidence that we can have an idea of what is happening.
The video claims that there was no isolated and concentrated viral particles from which the initial strains were genotyped. However, that could not be
obtained unless that had already had a good model that allowed for the isolation of the virus.
While it could be (invalidly) argued that in the early days each discovery was of itself not proof, we have now got good genotyping technology, and we
have now isolated and concentrated the virus and it is exactly as those early papers suggested.
The 'analytical' nature of the isolation of the virus was not a separate stage to the clinical identification of the virus. Clinical only results must
be analyzed to get the specifics of the genome. You aren't going to get a genome, or anything 'testable' just from symptoms, and 'culturing' of the
Similarly, this video 'quotes' from the now infamous Kary Mullis video where he implies that PCR can give any desired result if you run it hard
enough. This has been disproven and debunked for 30 years, but still is used over and over again.
Covid-19 pneumonia causes a specific type of injury to the lungs that other similar pneumonic conditions do not. Similarly, the affectation of taste
and smell receptors identifies that there is something different from other viruses that cause pneumonia. As does the fact that the virus can cause
all sorts of damage in clinical situations, without raising an immune response, show that it is, in fact, a novel virus.
This video is just another of the same conspiracist nonsense that is being promoted for political purposes. It sounds scientific and educated but is
simply unrealistic, and if people were to believe it, would cause more deaths as they would not take steps to protect themselves from a disease that
is pandemic across the world and has undoubtedly killed millions.
