Is the virus real? Has it been photographed? What about Koch's postulates? What to do?

Even though I thought I had answered these questions, smart people who I respect keep asking if the virus is real.  So here is another stab at explaining this.

Yes, the virus is real.  A misleading CDC/FDA document originally written in February but reposted months later stated there was no "quantifiable" sample of SARS-CoV-2 available.  While it might have been true in early February, it has been false since then.  Here, CDC tells you how they cultured SARS-CoV-2 and how you can get some--as long as your institution satisfies stringent criteria. CDC's discussion of its culture technique was published in its own journal, Emerging Infectious Diseases.  The article concludes:

We have deposited information on the SARS-CoV-2 USA-WA1/2020 viral strain described here into the Biodefense and Emerging Infections Research Resources Repository, ATCC and the World Reference Center for Emerging Viruses and Arboviruses, University of Texas Medical Branch, to serve as the SARS-CoV-2 reference strain for the United States. The SARS-CoV-2 fourth passage virus has been sequenced and maintains a nucleotide sequence identical to that of the original clinical strain from the United States. These deposits make this virus strain available to the domestic and international public health, academic, and pharmaceutical sectors for basic research, diagnostic development, antiviral testing, and vaccine development. We hope broad access will expedite countermeasure development and testing and enable a better understanding of the transmissibility and pathogenesis of this novel emerging virus.

This virus has been isolated and fully sequenced 125,000 times in countries around the world, both by poor countries such as Nepal, as well as by richer countries such as South Korea and Australia. The methods are described, sometimes in an accessory file.

A large number of people who don't know a lot about viruses, but were cognizant of the nonsense the public is being fed about most other aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic, understandably concluded there was no virus. Perhaps the government agencies that supplied the information from which they drew this conclusion did so cunningly, with the hope to entrap the unwary.

Thankfully, a New Zealand microbiology professor explains what took place as a result of poor wording in requests for information.

Some people still clamour that Koch's Postulates have not been met wrt SARS-CoV-2--but they were met, as closely as possible, in animal models like the Golden Syrian hamster.  [Why are the Syrians always getting slammed?] You can't infect a human to test Koch's postulates, and then publish it, and not be arrested.  

What about photomicrographs of SARS-CoV-2?  It turns out that some of the early photographs were misinterpretations by their authors and did NOT, in fact, provide reliable pictures of the virus. See this Correspondence in the Lancet about published photomicrographs that mistook endoplasmic reticulum for virus, for instance.  (Strangely enough, two of the coauthors of the fabricated Lancet paper damning chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine were coauthors of this Lancet article and response that interpreted photos of the virus incorrectly:  Mandeep Mehra and Frank Ruschitzka. They admitted no mistakes either time. I wonder if the Lancet will give them a 3d chance?) 

But it seems that good pictures of the virus have been taken.  For instance, see figure 2 in this paper.

Please look at the links above before dismissing the virus.  We have been given misinformation about masks, lockdowns, tests, case numbers, deaths, asymptomatic spread, duration of immunity, proper treatment, etc.  But there truly is a mean new virus out there.  It looks like some nasty features were engineered in.

There is Good News

We have vitamins, minerals, and drugs that can effectively manage the infection, particularly when treated early.  I don't doubt that environmental toxins and electromagnetic fields may increase our susceptibility to infection.  But the Coronavirus itself can trigger a litany of autoimmune consequences if left unchecked--after 1-2 weeks when it has been left to run free..  

Our governments and health officials have simply done every single thing wrong to manage it, greatly prolonging and worsening the situation. But you can successfully take your health into your own hands. 

Find a doctor ahead of time who will treat you with effective antivirals so you will be prepared if you do develop symptomatic disease.  Keep up the Vitamin D and Zinc and hopefully you will be an asymptomatic case who develops robust immunity. Find out if your state is one of about 25 that has restricted doctors or pharmacies from providing you with chloroquine drugs, and how to manage the situation.

For example, in my state of Maine, the governor has made prophylactic treatment illegal--but treatment once you get Covid is approved for up to 14 days as an inpatient or outpatient. Forewarned is forearmed! Connect with a medical partner now.  Work together to create a treatment plan so you will receive your preferred, optimal treatment if you do become ill.

Off Guardian has a long piece arguing that he virus has not been satisfactorily isolated. I am a complete laymen and remember your post because I wasn’t sure what to make of it compared to some others I read on the question. Now that Off Guardian has gone into why the virus has not been isolated, can you read it and explain if you agree disagree and why? Would appreciate it.

So far there has been 1,500,000 isolations (http://www.Gisaid.org)
475,000 sequences (http://sars2.cvr.gla.ac.uk/cog-uk/)
and so many purifications of the sars-cov2 virus as they needed many copies to create antiviral molecules for further study which you can buy from 100's of websites - 1 example:(https://thenativeantigencompany.com/products/sars-cov-2-purified-viral-lysate/) and this is just from a few organisations, theres 100's across the world running their own studies, experiments and tests. Someone even went out of their way to demonstrate that Koch's postulates can be met, eventhough its a 130 years out of date practise (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32215622/). What I see a lot being written or claimed by a lot of people is "covid19 has not been isolated....", which is a schoolboy error or a pseudo misunderstanding and like chickenpox, cold sores and colds which are all diseases you dont isolate diseases, you isolate herpes, varicella, rhinoviruses and sars-cov2 which are all the viruses that cause the diseases. The 1st full genome sequence was released March 2020 (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/MN908947) It was then catagorised in taxonomy, which is a database of the entire virosphere (https://gd.eppo.int/taxon/CONHSP) by running many tests on it such as phylogenic analysis, Putative recombination, ML tree research and placed into a type and lineage.

I see no reason why a person should be forbidden - under pain of arrest - from testing a pathogenic microbe on human beings - with informed consent. It is laudable for a person to risk his life for another. We allow it in clinical trials for experimental treatments, so why not infectious disease investigation? Is there something that someone or many people in power are trying to hide?

The germ theory of disease appears to be incorrect. Perhaps a germ is necessary, but it isn't sufficient. As such a weakened immune system is required.

Regarding the New Zealand microbiology professor Siouxsie Wiles, who wrote the article about why official information requests fail... Well being a NZer myself, the name Siouxsie Wiles is infamous. And not infamous in a good way, infamous in a bad way. She's been at the centre of a huge controversy where she (who extorted on the importance of lockdowns, social distancing, masks, and other measures) was caught on video flaunting ALL of these things during the latest Auckland lockdown. She's in the pockets of mainstream media and the govt. I laughed as soon as i saw her babe referenced in this article, because she's not someone who i would trust for a millisecond to be honest genuine and transparent. She's just the opposite. I personally would remove that link from this article, as it detracts from the arguments.
