Caution in Identifying Coronavirus by Electron Microscopy

white and black stone fragments

Sarah E. Miller and Cynthia S. Goldsmith We are concerned about the erroneous identification of coro-navirus directly in tissues by authors using electron microscopy. Several recent articles have been published that purport to have identified severe acute respiratory syndrome corona- virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) directly in tissue. Most describe particles that resemble, but do not have […]

Chronology for Covid & SARS-CoV-2 PCR and Metagenomics

red and white analog alarm clock at 10 10

Eric F. Coppolino/Chiron Return A chronology tells you what happened when. It puts things in order. In times of chaosand experience coming at us simultaneously and from all directions and all viewpoints, this is a revolutionary act. When mayhem is the vehicle of oppression, organization is rebellion. When misinformation is a weapon, assembling documented facts […]

There Was No Pandemic

Coronavirus News on Screen

Denis G. Rancourt All-cause mortality by time (day, week, month, year, period), by jurisdiction (country, state, province, county), and by individual characteristics of the deceased (age, sex, race, living accomodations) is the most reliable data for detecting and epidemiologically characterizing events causing death, and for gauging the population-level impact of any surge or collapse in […]

SARS-CoV-2 Spike Ectodomain Targets α7 Nicotinic Acetycholine Receptors

corona, coronavirus, virus

Brittany C. V. O’Brien et al. Virus entry into animal cells is initiated by attachment to target macromolecules located on host cells. The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) trimeric spike glycoprotein targets host angiotensin converting enzyme 2 to gain cellular access. The SARS-CoV-2 glycoprotein contains a neurotoxin-like region that has sequence similarities to […]

So Long “Covid”

virus, microbiology, cell

Mike Stone … is “long Covid” a clearly definable condition or is it the mere creation of media hype and fear propaganda preying on those who were already over-stressed and in a heightened state of fear? Were the symptoms that are now associated with “long Covid” either the exacerbation of pre-existing conditions that existed prior […]

Autoimmunity is a Hallmark of Post-COVID Syndrome

coronavirus, corona, virus

Manuel Rojas et al. Autoimmunity has emerged as a characteristic of the post‐COVID syndrome (PCS), which may be related to sex. In order to further investigate the relationship between SARS‐CoV‐2 and autoimmunity in PCS, a clinical and serologi‐ cal assessment on 100 patients was done. Serum antibody profiles against self‐antigens and infectious agents were evaluated […]
