Bao et al’s claim to meet Koch’s Postulates is no more than modern day Alchemy undertaken with very sophisticated instrumentation, untested assumptions and poor research design. Implicating in the laboratory is not the same as fulfilling. And that’s what is happening throughout these epidemiologically-based/intoned papers purportedly ‘showing’ ‘SARS-CoV-2 causes ‘Covid-19 disease’ based on putative isolation, no viral purification as well as biased and untested assumptions. ‘Imputed suspicion’ then starts to crumble [as below] when one looks closer at the research designs and the huge claims made – it’s a ‘Covid-Dazzler’. Huge claims are then found to be at worst false or at best spurious; these are “facts” that disappear as one looks closer. It reminds me of Agatha Christie’s comment:
“The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to seekers after it.” —The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
This claim that Bao et al fulfils Koch’s Postulates is questionable because of the following research design and interpretation flaws:
White DO, Fenner FJ. (1986) Medical Virology. San Diego, Academic Press.
Dr Kevin P Corbett, London, England.
