Some denialists say that the coronavirus does not exist. It is much worse than that: its genome is not known. There are several articles published in scientific journals that appear to the contrary, but they do not contribute anything that could be expected, starting with the one that the “experts” take as canon, which is that of Na Zhu published last year in the New England Journal of Medicine (1).
It is at the heart of any debate about the coronavirus and the pandemic. If the genomic composition of the coronavirus is not known, it makes no sense to talk about PCR testing, nor about “positives”, nor “cases”, nor “outbreaks”. Nor does it make sense to talk about strains or mutations, even though pseudoscientific studies on these variants have proliferated since the beginning of the hysteria.
In the coronavirus databases there are almost half a million different genetic sequences that claim to represent as many strains of the same virus. These sequences have one thing in common: they have not been obtained from organic tissue. What scientists regard as such is an assembly made by computer programs from virus genome databases.
In a study published in June last year (2), CDC (Centers for Disease Control) researchers admitted that they had only taken 37 base pairs from a genome, which has a total of about 30,000 nucleotides. That means that only 0.001 percent of the coronavirus genomic sequence came from the real world, from organic tissue samples. The rest has come from a computer.
If anyone is concerned that the virus has “escaped” from some mysterious laboratory, they should be much more concerned to learn that it has “escaped” from a computer.
The same concern should be shown if they are told that there are half a million different variants of dogs or cats.
What the “experts” consider to be the coronavirus genome derives from the same vice that shakes large sectors of modern science: computer science. The sequences are not taken from reality but from a computer or, at least, they are completed thanks to it. They are therefore computer models in which there is a bit of everything. It is even possible to find sequences that are part of the human genome or that viruses share with humans.
Since its discovery by June Almeida in 1964, numerous micrographs of the coronavirus have been obtained. The images reveal that its size is extremely variable. According to Zhu, the bandwidth ranges from 60 to 140 nanometers, more than double. It is like finding a human being that is 1.70 meters tall and another that is 4 meters tall. But even coronaviruses, real or supposed, have been found with sizes smaller or larger than the limits established by Zhu.
It is more than evident that, both in terms of genome and size, when many scientists speak of coronaviruses they are actually alluding to organic particles of very different types that, on occasions, are not even viruses.
