Some references on the reality of SARS-CoV-2.
For readers interested in questions such as the reality of SARS-CoV-2 (or viruses in general), if the virus is causing covid, if it fulfills Robert Koch’s postulates, if it has been isolated etc., SPR recommends this Twitter thread by an American geneticist and quite skeptical covid analyst. The recently published, first SARS-CoV-2 human challenge study may also be of interest.
While viruses were discovered only decades after Koch, cannot be cultured in the classic sense, and cannot be seen with a conventional light microscope, they are still very real. Viruses aren’t exosomes (extracellular vesicles), either, but exosomes can play a role in virus infections and viral disease.
For readers interested in the more specific and more complex question of whether the human retrovirus often called HIV is causing the syndrome often called AIDS, see this overview of skeptical scientific papers, articles and documentaries.
