The science behind COVID and vaccines!

Should FDA, and other authorities, approve the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 vaccines? – A scientific perspective

COVID-19 is a recently labeled infectious disease which is presumably caused by a novel coronavirus labeled as SARS-CoV-2.

It is important to note that COVID-19 is not based on any defined and specific symptoms but common and general flu-like potentially treatable with antibiotic regimens [1]. However, medical experts and regulatory authorities, in particular FDA, have adopted an official position that illness is because of a viral infection caused by SARS-CoV-2. Being a viral disease led to a policy decision that a vaccine is needed for its treatment that is to be developed. The pharmaceutical industry has made great efforts in collaboration with the authorities to develop vaccines quickly. There have been media reports that some vaccines are at a late development stage and ready to be submitted to the FDA for marketing approval.

What does a positive coronavirus test really mean?

One thing is for sure that the test does not show the presence of the virus. Anyone who says otherwise is misinformed or lying. At present, there is no test available to test the coronavirus.

The test, which is usually conducted using swab samples, is called the PCR test. The PCR test does not test the virus, but a long chain chemical compound commonly known by its fancy name DNA. Therefore, the test is a chemical test to monitor a chemical compound (DNA) or its part by its nature. With a positive test result, it is assumed that the DNA is from the coronavirus. However, because no one has seen or isolated actual coronavirus, it is impossible to establish if the DNA (or its part) is from the virus. The positive test results could be from any or many sources, including regular seasonal, live or dead, flu-virus, or its debris.

Also, scientifically speaking, before any test is accepted for its intended use, it must be validated to show that it is specific and accurate. However, the current PCR test could not be validated because it would require coronavirus itself and its DNA that is not available. Therefore, the PCR test becomes invalid or irrelevant and unpredictable.

So to the question, “What does a positive coronavirus test really mean?” The answer is NOTHING! For a more detailed discussion on the topic, please follow the link..

CDC virus testing and isolation claims for SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19: Non-scientific and pure illusion!

A few days ago I provided critical comments on a publication from Australia (University of Melbourne) which claimed isolation and identification of SARS-CoV-2 virus [1]. I suggested that claims were not supported by scientific evidence and logic.

The present article critically evaluates a similar claim from America’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) in a publication [2] entitled: Continue here

Isolation and characterization of the virus (SARS-CoV2)

It is both logical and common sense to expect that if a particular material is claimed to exist then its presence must be established using valid and well-recognised practices and laws of science. For example, if it is suggested that a certain geographical area may provide a significant amount of mineral such as gold or oil then that mineral must be extracted, isolated and characterized before proceeding with large scale production for public benefit and commercial gains. The same understanding has to be applied in other areas including the medical and pharmaceutical areas.

At present the world is allegedly in the grip of a serious and wide-spread disease (pandemic) referred to as COVID-19 caused by a virus labelled as SARS-CoV-2. Hence, there is purportedly an urgent need for a treatment for this disease. Commensurately, it is important to note that the medical community has declared with apparent certainty that disease (COVID-19) exists and is caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2. [click here to continue]
