Is ‘COVID Vaccine’ A Copycat Of Theranos Blood Test Fraud?
Worried top international pharma expert agrees with whistleblower from Theranos blood test fraud – COVID-19 vaccine drive is following the same pattern as the Theranos scam of 2003.
Former Health Canada specialist in pharmaceutical regulatory assessment, Dr Saeed Qureshi, shares the fears of whistleblower, Tyler Shultz. Each having their own unique insights, both men agree we should beware a ‘covid copycat’ of the $9 billion Theranos’ blood testing scandal.
Dr Qureshi summarizes the issue as follows:
“Theranos was a privately held health technology corporation. It was initially touted as a breakthrough technology company, with claims of having devised blood tests that required only very small amounts of blood and could be performed very rapidly using small automated devices the company had developed. However, the claims later proved to be false.”
Theranos whistleblower – Tyler Shultz, is grandson of George Shultz, a former U.S. Secretary of State. The younger Shultz gave evidence to state regulators that took down the company and got CEO, Elizabeth Holmes and the firm’s president, Sunny Balwani, charged with nearly a dozen felony fraud counts. The two are awaiting trial in U.S. District Court in San Jose.
And no one should place great trust in governmental bodies such as the FDA. Last month Dr Qureshi called them out on their ‘lies’ and dishonest practices.
Shultz revealed to The Mercury News :
“There were so many systems that had to fail to allow Theranos to happen,” Shultz, 29, said in a telephone interview. “But in this kind of post-Covid world, I do see a lot of opportunity for fraud. The science side is moving really, really fast. Corners are going to be cut. I’m very worried another Theranos will happen. The environment right now is conducive to fraud in the medical space.”
Dr Qureshi expands for our readers with a simple analogy to illustrate how COVID-19 fraud could work like the Theranos scam. He says the opportunity exists because:
“the presence/absence of virus is established by indirect testing. These indirect tests are commonly known as PCR and antibody tests.”
Such tests, says Dr Quresh:
“Monitor specific types of proteins or related chemicals which are produced by the presence of viruses, not only by SARS-CoV2 or COVID-19, but by all pathogenic viruses.”
The gold standard of a disease – the isolated virus – has never been established for COVID-19. Contrary to media claims, no test exists that will specifically identity the SARS-Cov-2 virus. In fact, there is no scientifically proven virus or disease.
This is why you may have heard reports of different SARS-CoV-2 strains. There are already thousands of ‘different’ SARS-CoV-2 genotypes profiled in the GISAID database since December 2019, when the Chinese government first reported several human pneumonia cases in Wuhan city. (Wang et al., 2020a).
You may have already realized there may not actually be a SARS-CoV-2 deadly virus because atypical symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting are also commonly found (Ding, 2020; Wang, 2020; Zhu et al., 2020). ‘Atypical’ is a get out term for experts wanting to fudge the whole COVID calamity.
Dr Qureshi is not alone in his cynicism. Dr. Stoian Alexov, a high-profile European pathologist, joins the Canadian among a rising number of specialists who say, “NO ONE Has Died From The Coronavirus!” It simply doesn’t exist as a distinct, isolated and identifiable pathogen.
Moreover, there certainly isn’t anything ‘novel’ about any coronaviruses. They are a class of genetically diverse viruses found in a wide range of host species like mammals and birds (Drosten et al., 2003; Resta et al., 1985). The mutation rate for any RNA virus – such as the one alleged to have caused the pandemic – is drastically high and this higher mutation rate is correlated with a virulence which is beneficial for viral adaptation (Duffy, 2018).
“The bug called COVID-19 is officially not definable and has not been identified. Let me repeat: The pathogen that is the cause of the illness called COVID-19 has never been identified and is unknown at this time. It may be a virus or it may be something else.”
If it does/did exist it has, like any RNA virus, mutated rapidly as our immune systems adapt to it and we build herd immunity.
What the tests currently do is seek to identify genetic material and an RNA sequence based upon lung fluid extracted from Chinese patients earlier in the pandemic. However, such genetic material is found in everyone. It is merely at higher levels in very sick people suffering from a number of non-COVID illness.
If, like me, you find your skepticism growing, then do read our related articles discrediting claims this disease has been identified as a virus because in New York they recently found out that ‘5,700 COVID Cases Show Blood Poisoning, No Virus.’
Just like with Theranos, scammers are seeking to take advantage of demands for mass testing and are reportedly engaging in fraudulent antibody test scams. The Mercury News reports:
“Four members of Congress made reference to an FBI alert late last month, warning that the drive to reopen the economy has put a premium on rapid development of antibody tests, and that fraudsters were marketing fake or unapproved tests “potentially providing false results.”
Earlier this summer, Mark Schena, 57, of Los Altos became the first person charged by the U.S. Department of Justice with securities fraud over pandemic-related activity, with federal authorities accusing the medical-technology CEO of seeking to trick investors by fraudulently promoting an unproven coronavirus test.
The Securities and Exchange Commission has already charged Applied Biosciences, a Utah firm, with fraud in connection with claims about its “finger-prick” coronavirus tests. The glut of ‘false positives’ claims of ‘asymptomatic’ carriers, etc. has made fear and uncertainty more contagious than the ‘virus.’
As Qureshi explains:
“Similarly, if one would request validation data for COVID-19 testing (presence/absence of virus and by extension its disease, not of some non-specific proteins) in particular from authorities/experts, it will immediately become clear that claims of testing/pandemic are false.”
He asks us to imagine a new test to establish the dangers of unsafe cars whereby authorities decide to implement a policy to check every vehicle’s tire pressure. We know that it is straight forward to draw a conclusion on safety if we stop check cars and measure the pressure of the tires because we would find a consensus of opinion that would say under-inflated tires can be dangerous. [for ‘tires’ read flu-like symptoms]
But as Dr Qureshi says:
“However, it is not accurate or logical to use tire pressure monitoring to decide on the overall vehicle safety and to reject cars as unsafe if some cars deviate from the tire pressure criteria.”
This is where we are at with the current and unreliable COVID testing. Qureshi continues:
“As with tires so with COVID testing. Unfortunately, authorities end up deciding that cars safety will be monitored only on the basis of tires pressure levels. Now this would become a “Regulatory Compliance Requirement” or the law for cars safety assessment. On top of this, irony is that authorities to provide their own version of tire pressure gauges leading to showing of failures of otherwise perfectly acceptable cars as unsafe and useless.”
Dr Qureshi warns:
“However, in this case authorities are making and accepting false claims for the testing and avoiding the Theranos like demise which would be unavoidable for long. Request the authorities to provide validation details of the available COVID-19 tests? The pandemic will disappear very quickly as did the Theranos.”
