NZ University Exposed in False Claim of Identifying COVID19 Virus (Principia Scientific Intl)

New Zealand’s University of Otago claimed to have “isolated the COVID-19 virus” but has no record of it isolated anywhere, by anyone, ever.

A colleague in New Zealand and I have been submitting Freedom of Information (FOI) requests to various institutions in Canada, NZ, Australia, Germany, the U.K., England, Ireland and the U.S., seeking any records that describe the isolation of a “COVID-19 virus” aka “SARS-COV-2” from an unadulterated sample taken from a diseased human patient.

Our requests have not been limited to records of isolation performed by the respective institutions, or limited to records authored by the respective institutions, rather they have been open to any records held by the institutions describing “COVID-19 virus” isolation performed by anyone, anywhere, any time.

As of today (October 16, 2020) 20 institutions have provided their responses. 19 institutions indicated that they searched their records and found none (authored by anyone, anywhere, ever) describing the isolation of a “SARS-COV-2 virus” from an unadulterated sample taken from a diseased patient. The remaining institution simply refused our request. All 20 of these FOIs responses can be accessed from this page:

New Zealand’s University of Otago

Researchers at New Zealand’s University of Otago claimed months ago to have “isolated the virus” and shared their so-called “isolate” for use in the development of vaccines, testing of antivirals and other “COVID-19” research.

Below are quotes from the Otago Daily Times, 13 June 2020; the full article entitled On the offensive: Otago Uni’s fight against Covid-19 is available here:

Positive cases and access to a high-containment lab meant his team was able to grow the SARS-CoV-2 virus and isolate its RNA, its genetic material; the first New Zealand lab to do so

“I have a list of more than 20 groups contacting me to work with, you name it, any compounds they want to test against the virus to see if it has antiviral properties; vaccine development; how to kill the virus, for example, detergents or UV light so that PPE can be reused; clinical studies …”

Early on, professors Quinones-Mateu and Ussher made the decision to start researching a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.

…At that point, there was no government funding for vaccine research. But they, in collaboration, with researchers elsewhere in New Zealand formed a consortium with the goal of getting a vaccine for New Zealand “at the earliest opportunity”, Prof Ussher says.

Prof Ussher was vocal and persistent in his call for the Government to fund national efforts to produce an effective SARS-CoV-2 vaccine.

…The Government listened. A fortnight ago, Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters announced a National Vaccine Strategy that came with a $37 million budget. Almost half will be for New Zealand research and manufacture, a further $15 million is for international research collaboration and $7 million will fund vaccine distribution in developing countries.

The money is “fantastic” and “the best way for New Zealand to contribute to the global effort”, Prof Ussher says.

…His “best case scenario” prediction is that it will take 12 to 18 months for a successful vaccine candidate somewhere to be identified and go through clinical trials. It will then need to be manufactured and distributed…

Then on August 6, 2020 in an article entitled Covid-19 unmasked: experts discuss coronavirus, Radio New Zealand quoted University of Otago virologist Miguel Quiñones-Mateu as saying But once we isolated the virus and we had it… then we started sharing the genetic material. … It opened the door for projects like the vaccine initiative we’re involved in… If we didn’t have that opportunity of working with the virus, we wouldn’t be where we are” …

and reported that “University of Otago virologist Jemma Geoghegan is involved in sequencing samples of the coronavirus and by comparing mutations she is helping map the spread of the disease”

Exciting and lucrative times at the University of Otago. But how legitimate is their claim of having “isolated the virus”? To find out, my colleague in New Zealand submitted an FOI request seeking any records held by the University that describe the isolation of “SARS-COV-2” from a sample taken from a diseased human patient that was not first adulterated with other sources of genetic material (typically monkey kidney cells and fetal bovine serum).

Below is a screenshot of page 1 from the University of Otago’s “no records” response. The University’s Registrar and Secretary to the Council “can confirm that the University holds no records which fall within the scope of your request...”



ZERO Evidence that COVID Fulfills Koch’s 4 Germ Theory Postulates – Dr. Andrew Kaufman & Sayer Ji

In this interview, Dr. Kaufman explores a new study published in NATURE which claims to establish COVID-19 related pathogenicity in an animal model, but which does not fulfill Koch’s postulates for germ theory, and may overtly misrepresent the truth. This, in fact, is not new, as many publications have claimed to isolate COVID-19 or prove its role in causing animal and human deaths, yet none of them are actually capable of demonstrating this conclusively. Sayer Ji asks hard hitting questions and together they explore the implications of this and other research to the ongoing weaponization of germ theory as a political weapon for mass control and surveillance in violation of basic human, civil, constitutional and medical rights.

Andrew Kaufman MD is a healing consultant, inventor, public speaker, forensic psychiatrist, and expert witness. He completed psychiatric training at Duke University Medical Center after graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina, while a B.S. from M.I.T. in Molecular Biology.

Andrew has conducted and published original research and lectured, supervised, and mentored medical students, residents, and fellows in all psychiatric specialties.He has been qualified as an expert witness in local, state, and federal courts, and held leadership positions in academic medicine and professional organizations.
