Isolation is a process of separating a ‘thing’ from everything else (See the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary definition of isolate). In the vast majority of scientific studies, isolation is defined as such. However, virologist misuse the word isolation/isolate to instead mean culturingmixture. The process used in every scientific paper claiming to isolate a virus mixes a sample taken from a diseased person with Bovine Fetus Cells/genetic material and host cells like Monkey Kidney Cells and/or Human Lung Cancer Cells. They next top it off with antibiotics and antifungals. They will then observe for a number of days to confirm cell deformation/death. They call this ‘isolation’. I call it a gross misunderstanding for some and fraud for others who know exactly what they are doing.
Merriam-Webster defines purification as, “the act or an instance of purifying or of being purified”. When a thing is isolated, purification can be measured. In scientific papers, this is expressed as a percentage value. For instance, 99% pure oxygen was used in this experiment. No purity measurements are reported in any papers on SARS-COV-2.
Lets investigate a paper claiming Virus Isolation for SARS-COV-2 which has been used as a reference in papers that study SARS-COV-2. The title is “A Novel Coronavius from Patients with Pneumonia in China, 2019”.
