RE: Life in covid19 testing lab and virology research during the times of pandemic - the crazy year.

Hi to you,

I would appreciate it very much in reading your answers on the following questions.

Scientifically, it is not the things that confirm a theory, but the anomalies, those that challenge it.

With this in mind, how do you answer the question that there is little that challenges virus theory in the publications, but a lot that confirms it?

How familiar are you with the history of virus theory science or have you read scientific papers that deal with it controversially?

When you started your career, did you automatically assume that the theory of viruses, as commonly accepted today, was proven beyond doubt?

Within your university or other education, did you discuss anomalies, work that contradicted mainstream science, integrate it into the curriculum? What about outside of it?

Have you personally never had any doubts about virus theory? If not, could you give a reason for this? If yes, what would it be?

I am not really sure if I understand your question clearly. But if you are pointing at the alternative theory where viruses aren't real, then I must say that I have been working with them for over 8 years now. Previously, I use to make replication incompetent viruses for modifying the genetic code of cells and animals for my project. The only difference this time is dealing with an competent infectious virus. Furthermore, you can actually isolate the virus from the patients. That's how we create the repository for different strains. You can look at this virus using cryo electron microscope. Then when you infect the animals with the virus you isolated from the patient and then infect a susceptible animal with it, it gets sick and shows the symptoms. For SARS-CoV-2 this animal can be K18hAce2 mice, or a hAce2 knock-in mice (basically mice genetically engineered to express human version of Ace2 protein on its cells). Given I have done all these experiments myself, including looking at the virus in a CryoEM, I have very little to no reason to doubt the existence of viruses. If I got your question wrong it would help if you elaborate.
