Lab Leaks and other Legends



One of the biggest distractions regarding the existence of pathogenic viruses is the various “supporting” stories that appear in both the mainstream and alternative media. The controlled corporate media intentionally promulgates contagion mythology as it fuels the medico-pharmaceutical complex and vested interests. Additionally, as the last few years have demonstrated, the contagion narrative is useful for pushing globalist and technocratic agendas, as exemplified by the World Economic Forum using COVID-19 hysteria to push their “Great Reset”. On the other hand, while much of the alternative media is awake to the globalist agendas and Big Pharma coverups, they continue to lend support to the existence of viruses, as well as the concept of microbial-based disease contagion in a wider sense. Unfortunately, this feeds back into the fraud (and fear) that all of the other fraud has been built upon.

This is not a new phenomenon although the COVID-era has demonstrated how it has escalated to  engulf almost the entire planet. Virus Mania outlines the “pandemic” playbook that has been developed by the industry over several decades. It all relies on the public being duped into believing they are in perpetual danger from micro-organisms. As the book details, fraudulent science is at the heart of germ and viral theory, so that is what needs to be exposed. Once appreciated, there is no need to waste energy debating the various aspects of the latest “pandemic” when nobody buys it in the first place.


Recently there have been stories in both the mainstream and the alternative media, stating that the World Health Organisation’s Director-general, Tedros Adhanom believes, “Covid did leak from Wuhan lab.” Additionally, these stories report that, “Jeffrey Sachs, leader of the Lancet Commission on COVID-19, now says that he is convinced that the pandemic started in a lab and that SARS-CoV-2 was created with the aid of U.S. biotechnology.” It all sounds like a smoking gun, unless you know about virology’s ‘little’ problems…

“Lab Leak” nonsense gets the thumbs up from Tedros

The alternative media should be wary that the COVID-19 lab-leak/engineered virus hypothesis appeared in the mainstream media as early as February 2020, as outlined in Eric Coppolino’s “Chronology for Covid”. This is in contrast to the extreme degree of censorship that ‘no virus’ claimants face. In fact, most of the Big Tech platforms completely ban such content and it never features in the mainstream media. In any case, we have previously addressed the lack of any scientific basis to “virus” gain of function claims in videos here and here. Dr Stefan Lanka has also dealt with the myth of man-made pathogens and ViroLIEgy’s Mike Stone has termed such fantasies as “Gain of Fiction“. In a nutshell, all claims regarding “lab leaks” come back to the same issue: if there is no evidence of a virus to start with, there is nothing to leak.

Further fuelling the virus fear narrative and hot on the heels of declarations of monkeypox outbreaks, was an alleged “national incident” reported by Bloomberg on June 22. It included the dramatic headline, “UK’s Polio-Free Status at Risk as Virus Found in London Sewage,” and almost simultaneously, the United Kingdom’s Health Security Agency (UKHSA) declared that:

Vaccine-like type 2 poliovirus (PV2) isolates have been found in multiple sewage samples collected from the London Beckton Sewage Treatment Works between February and June 2022…An average of 1 to 3 poliovirus isolates per year have been detected from UK sewage samples in recent years. However, these have all been single detections which are unrelated to each other. In this instance, the isolates identified between February and June 2022 are genetically related.

This of course is virology’s definition of ‘isolates’, which does not require that any particles fulfilling the definition of a virus be found. For example, a paper describing the, “Isolation of Vaccine-Like Poliovirus Strains in Sewage Samples,” was published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases in 2017. We have detailed the illegitimate methodologies of virology in much of our work and this paper utilises many of the same techniques. In brief, they took samples of raw sewage and performed “virus isolation” by adding the sewer water to abnormal cell lines (human rhabdomyosarcoma and genetically-modified mouse cells). These are conveniently used as they are said to be, “susceptible for poliovirus infection,” or in order words, more likely to exhibit cytopathic effects in this application. On the basis of observing such cell breakdown in some of their in vitro experiments they declared they had, “isolated poliovirus.”


Their next step involved the fraudulent claim that, “viral RNA was purified,” from the tissue culture experiments, when there had been no demonstration of any virus in their samples. Then they proceeded with genomic sequencing, including ‘dirty’ use of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) up to 42 cycles to “find” their selected fragments. (With the PCR, a cycle threshold around 35 indicates a single molecule was present in the original sample so beyond that the “positive” findings are usually artefact.) In any case, their generated reads were, “mapped to a set of HEV [human enterovirus] sequences using a curated database containing sequences representative of isolates from all HEV serotypes.” Here we enter into virology’s circular reasoning: they are claimed to be “viral” sequences because they have been previously declared as such and deposited on a genetic database. However, none of the sequences have ever been shown to come from “polioviruses”, if we are talking about disease-causing infectious particles, and thus the UKHSA is misleading the public. No “viruses” are being detected in sewage samples, they are simply detecting (or at least purporting to detect) pre-selected genetic sequences on a sewer river fishing expedition.

“Coroni” also in poop? I didn’t make up this image – it actually appeared on a media platform!

This issue of misattributed genetic sequences has permeated into claims of SARS-CoV-2 being man-made, not in the fictional sense as we argue, but that an actual virus was made in a laboratory. I have been asked several times to comment on Dr Ah Kahn Syed’s blog, “How to BLAST your way to the truth about the origins of COVID-19.” Dr Syed claims to, “prove that SARS-CoV-2 is man-made,” but his entire article is based on the unestablished premise that the sequences he analyses belong to viruses. This includes the claim that the SARS-CoV-2 “virus” contains “‘HIV-1’ glycoprotein 120” sequences. In 1997, Eleni Papadopulos-Eleopulos outlined why there was no evidence that these sequences or associated proteins belong to “HIV” as there has never been isolation of the putative viral particle. It is no different 25 years later and claims that they are specific to a “virus” are unfounded.

Just as Harry Potter is “true” in the world of J.K. Rowling’s books.

Papadopulos-Eleopulos and The Perth Group have further outlined why there is no proof that “HIV” RNA is “viral” or unique (and that the HIV orthodoxy curiously allow 30-40% variation of their claimed “unique” sequences) in pages 27-43 of “HIV – a virus like no other”. So, returning to Dy Syed’s article, it doesn’t matter how accurate his database analysis may be – the fatal flaw is the spurious information that the virologists have fed into the system. The only “viruses” being discussed are in silico constructs, rather than biological entities that have anything to do with causing harm to humans.


Virology generates a great deal of data but it is largely in a descriptive fashion, whether it be in regard to genomics, proteomics, PCR results, or “antibodies”. The technology and sheer volume of this data can be overwhelming, if not seductive. However, like modern molecular biology in general, it is looking more like a data-mining chemistry pursuit rather than a science having anything to do with the understanding of nature. Perhaps the proponents should considering the warning that Sir John Maddox issued in 1988:

Is molecular biology running into a dead end?…Is there a danger, in molecular biology, that the accumulation of data will get so far ahead of its assimilation into a conceptual framework that the data will eventually prove an encumbrance? Part of the trouble is that excitement of the chase leaves little time for reflection. And there are grants for producing data, but hardly any for standing back in contemplation.

Similar to Dy Syed’s blog, we hear claims from the virus proponents along the lines of, “what about the 11 million SARS-CoV-2 genomes on GISAID – are all these people lying?” This argument is circular reasoning as it asserts that each of the submitted “genomes” provides more evidence of the “virus” when it is simply loops of the same track. The question that needs to be asked is, “how were any of these alleged genomes created?” When this is investigated, it becomes apparent that the virologists do not want to engage in a falsifiable hypothesis-driven approach that is at the heart of the scientific method.

Virology is hiding its failures by largely engaging in descriptive science and our research into its history leads me to believe that this has been a case of self-deception in some cases and outright fraud in others. As a 2008 commentary in the journal Infection and Immunity explained, “descriptive research by itself is seldom conclusive,” and, “microbiology and immunology are now experimental sciences and consequently investigators can go beyond simply describing observations to formulate hypotheses and then perform experiments to validate or refute them.” In this regard, we can see that virology has painted itself into a corner and relies on other methods to keep itself afloat.


In 2021, I co-authored The COVID-19 Fraud & War on Humanity with Dr John Bevan-Smith. We outlined why there was never any evidence of a pathogenic particle termed ‘SARS-CoV-2’ and thus, no basis to the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently writing a much more extensive follow-up essay that will expose how the virologists have maintained various illusions by straying from the scientific method, not only with regard to COVID-19, but with all of their foundational claims concerning “viruses”. Further to the themes in this article, we will perform a deeper analysis of how virology has invalidated itself and cannot be considered a scientific pursuit. The essay will expose how foundational experiments involving everything from “cultures” through to “genome” creation and alleged clinical diagnostics have been performed without valid controls. We build on the case from our first essay that we can ignore such virological nonsense and the various anti-human “solutions” they are offering. The end of virology will be a gain for humanity.
