Various Hypotheses on the Origins of SARS-CoV-2

These are hypotheses not otherwise covered in the primary origins page.

Hoax Hypotheses

Questions About Purification & Sequencing

Numerous FOIA replies from the CDC, apparently showing that no virus, ever, has been successfully purified and sequenced, including SARS-Covid-2.1)

Meanwhile Heiko, an independent researcher, asked the science teams of the relevant papers which are referred to in the context of SARS-CoV-2 for proof whether the electron-microscopic shots depicted in their in vitro experiments show purified viruses. Not a single team could answer that question with “yes” — and note, nobody said purification was not a necessary step. We only got answers like “No, we did not obtain an electron micrograph showing the degree of purification” (see below).Citation Needed

We asked several study authors “Do your electron micrographs show the purified virus?”, they gave the following responses:

Study 1: Leo L. M. Poon; Malik Peiris. “Emergence of a novel human coronavirus threatening human health” Nature Medicine, March 20202) Replying Author: Malik Peiris Date: May 12, 2020

Answer: “The image is the virus budding from an infected cell. It is not purified virus.”

Study 2: Myung-Guk Han et al. “Identification of Coronavirus Isolated from a Patient in Korea with COVID-19”, Osong Public Health and Research Perspectives, February 20203) Replying Author: Myung-Guk Han Date: May 6, 2020

Answer: “We could not estimate the degree of purification because we do not purify and concentrate the virus cultured in cells.”

Study 3: Wan Beom Park et al. “Virus Isolation from the First Patient with SARS-CoV-2 in Korea”, Journal of Korean Medical Science, February 24, 20204) Replying Author: Wan Beom Park Date: March 19, 2020

Answer: “We did not obtain an electron micrograph showing the degree of purification.”

Study 4: Na Zhu et al., “A Novel Coronavirus from Patients with Pneumonia in China”, 2019, New England Journal of Medicine, February 20, 20205) Replying Author: Wenjie Tan Date: March 18, 2020

Answer: “[We show] an image of sedimented virus particles, not purified ones.”

Regarding the mentioned papers it is clear that what is shown in the electron micrographs (EMs) is the end result of the experiment, meaning there is no other result that they could have made EMs from. That is to say, if the authors of these studies concede that their published EMs do not show purified particles, then they definitely do not possess purified particles claimed to be viral.

A December 28, 2021 Substack article by Arkmedic, “How to BLAST6) your way to the truth about the origins of COVID-19” has, as the subtitle, “Using BLAST is easy. I'm going to show you how easy and how to prove that SARS-Cov-2 is man-made”.7) This might be assisted by the NCBI SARS-CoV-2 Resources page.8)
