Why Is There Such a Problem Isolating The Covid Virus?

Last Updated on August 17, 2022 by Shaun Snapp

Executive Summary

  • Since the pandemic began, there has been a problem finding an isolated covid virus.
  • With such a widespread virus, why has this been a problem?


An enormous assumption of the covid pandemic has been that the health authorities have isolated the covid virus. This turns out not to be true and the story on this topic brings up many questions.

Where Oh Where is the Isolated Covid Virus?

The lack of an isolated covid virus seems impossible given the magnitude of the pandemic.

The following is a response from the CDC.

A FOIA request was made by the CDC to produce documents related to isolating the covid virus. Observe their quote in the middle of the letter. 

A search for records failed to reveal any documents pertaining to your request. The National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases apprises that the CDC does not purify or isolate any COVID-19 virus in the manner the requested describes. – CDC

The establishment media call this a conspiracy theory, but while is proven the PRC test does not find covid, it increasingly appears that covid has not been isolated. This is further explained in the following quotation.

In 2021 Samuel Eckert’s German Team and the Isolate Truth Fund offered a reward of $265,000 for any scientist who can provide incontrovertible evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been isolated and therefore exists. They too pointed out that not even one lab in the world has yet been able to isolate this virus.

Some scientists “claim” they have, but their “isolation” is only of a sample from the human body, a “broth” of different kinds of cells, remains of viruses, bacteria, and so on. As we saw in our previous post, this is what Medicine Nobel Prize candidate Dr. Scoglio said, that the supernatant, the upper part of the patients’ centrifuged pharyngeal or bronchoalveolar fluid, an extremely complex matrix, was erroneously called “isolated virus”.

Samuel Eckert’s logic for why covid has not been isolated is explained at his website thusly.

Samuel Eckert stated that all virologists have deceived themselves and the public when they claim the existence of disease-causing viruses such as SARS-CoV-2. Virologists inadvertently kill cells in test tubes, believing that this is proof of the presence and isolation of a virus. Only from fragments of dying cells do virologists mentally construct a gene sequence and pass it off as fact. Therefore, the test procedures do not offer any significance or meaning. Typical structures of dying cells in the electron microscope are passed off as viruses. Such structures could never be detected or recognized in a human being so far. – luis46pr

The following quotes provide more background on the mysterious missing isolated covid virus.

…there’s no such thing as a real, physical, isolated covid-19 virus that has been harvested from sick people and shown to infect other people and make them sick. What we’re really witnessing here, it now seems, is three distinct things:

A cocktail of common cold viruses labeled “covid” which are circulating and causing sickness in some people, most likely because of the lack of immune system exposure to wild type viruses during all the global lockdowns.

As a lab owner, published scientist and mass spec analyst myself, I am extremely familiar with the process of using certified reference materials (CRMs) to validate analysis methods and instrument calibration sequences. (I’ve spent far too many evenings creating serial dilutions of standards using a Gilson pipette, trust me…)

Point #1: There appear to be no isolated, purified Certified Reference Materials available for SARS-CoV-2 “covid”. I’ve seen companies that claim to be selling “isolates” containing covid viruses, but in their own description, they explain that their vials contain genetic material from “host cells” (human cells) as well as bovine serum cells, which means it’s a cocktail stew of who-knows-what. Yet it’s called an “isolate.”

In other words, most of the genetic material in the “isolate” is actually from human cells. So it’s not an isolate at all. The covid virus isn’t isolated. In fact, this “isolate” contains viral genetic material, human genetic material and bovine genetic material, plus whatever other viruses were present in the blood of the people and the cows. This could be millions of different nanoparticles present, each containing their own sequences of genetic material.

Point #2: If you have no isolated, certified reference materials, you can’t develop a legitimate analysis test. And this is exactly what the FDA admits in its own documents, which state that since covid-19 viruses weren’t available for the development of the PCR test, they “simulated” it by using human cells and gene bank coronavirus fragments. From the FDA’s own document:

In other words, they faked the covid virus by using gene bank cells which were deliberately and falsely labeled “covid.” This is how the PCR test was developed. The FDA admits it all. The PCR test is a fraud.

This is expanded upon from another source.

The following quotes are from the website Cormond Drosten Review regarding enormous mistakes that were part of the development of the PCR test for covid.

The focus here should be placed upon the two stated aims: a) development and b) deployment of a diagnostic test for use in public health laboratory settings. These aims are not achievable without having any actual virus material available (e.g. for determining the infectious viral load).

In any case, only a protocol with maximal accuracy can be the mandatory and primary goal in any scenario-outcome of this magnitude. Critical viral load determination is mandatory information, and it is in Christian Drosten’s group responsibility to perform these experiments and provide the crucial data.

Yes. How was the test tuned to find covid, if it did not have a sample of covid from which to test?

“the establishment and validation of a diagnostic workflow for 2019-nCoV screening and specific confirmation, designed in absence of available virus isolates or original patient specimens. Design and validation were enabled by the close genetic relatedness to the 2003 SARS-CoV, and aided by the use of synthetic nucleic acid technology.”

This means the covid or SARS-CoV-2 PCR test was trained on SARS-CoV or on SARS-CoV-1.

The quote

Point #3: If you don’t have a CRM isolate, you can’t calibrate instruments against a known sample. And this means the PCR tests aren’t being calibrated against anything real and physical. Instead, they’re relying on downloaded digital libraries provided by none of than the CDC, the very same Big Pharma front group that’s spearheading this covid scam.

Point #4: PCR instruments are incapable of quantitative analysis. The “positive” hits are nothing but amplified background noise. No PCR instrument can tell you how much of some genetic material was found in an original sample. It can merely detect the presence of material on a yes / no basis. In lab science, this is called a “qualitative” analysis, not a quantitative analysis.

The entire process being used today via PCR is complete junk science that wouldn’t pass even the most basic science lab audit. That’s why most of these PCR outfits aren’t ISO accredited, by the way. They couldn’t pass a single audit. (My lab is ISO accredited with an annual audit, including blind quantitation accuracy tests via mass spec instruments to make sure we are hitting our accuracy targets.)

Dr. Judy Mikovitz, author of Ending Plague, confirmed all this in a recent interview with me. Not only did she confirm that there is no isolated covid-19 virus that has been harvested and purified from a sick person and proven to cause disease in another person; she also confirmed that Dr. Fauci specifically chose a weaponized lab sample that was infected with a cocktail of coronaviruses to use as a basis for gain-of-function research via the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

In effect, it appears the CDC has been fabricating the science behind global “pandemics” for decades, using the media to spread mass hysteria where no pandemic existed. One of the best and most recent cases is the recent Zika virus, where mainstream media outlets were screaming that babies born to new mothers in Florida would be born with shrunken heads (microcephaly) because of the Zika virus. Just as with the covid scheme, billions of dollars were funneled into pharmaceutical companies to research a vaccine for Zika, which turned out to be nothing more than fictional hype. – luis46pr

This problem in isolating a virus is not limited to covid as is explained in the following quotation.

Firstly, it must be noted that the study was supported by the Wellcome Trust,23 and that the lead author, as well as one additional author, work for the Wellcome Trust, 24 a pharmaceutical giant that makes multibillion dollar revenues from AIDS medications like Combivir, Trizivir and Retrovir (AZT, Azidothymidine).25 These researchers involved in conflicts of interest will hardly be able to say that HN has not been proven to exist. 26The California Monthly, the UC Berkeley alumni magazine, confronted Nobel laureate Kary Mullis in an interview using a statement from another Nobelist, David Baltimore. ” [Dear Mr. Mullis,] you mentioned Baltimore a moment ago. In a recent issue of Nature,43 he said: ‘There is no question at all that HN is the cause of AIDS. Anyone who gets up publicly and says the opposite is encouraging people to risk their lives.”‘ Whereupon Mullis replied: ”I’m not a lifeguard, I’m a scientist. And I get up and say exactly what I think. I’m not going to change the facts around because I believe in something and feel like manipulating somebody’s behavior by stretching what I really know. I think it’s always the right thing and the safe thing for a scientist to speak one’s mind from the facts. If you can’t figure out why you believe something, then you’d better make it clear that you’re speaking as a religious person. People keep asking me, ‘You mean you don’t believe that HN causes AIDS?’ And I say, ‘Whether I believe it or not is irrelevant! I have no scientific evidence for it!’ I might believe in God, and He could have told me in a dream that HN causes AIDS. But I wouldn’t stand up in front of scientists and say, ‘I believe HN causes AIDS because God told me.’ I’d say, ‘I have papers here in hand and experiments that have been done that can be demonstrated to others.’ It’s not what somebody believes, it’s experimental proof that counts. And those guys [from AIDS orthodoxy] don’t have that. “44

And since no HN can be found in AIDS patients, the hunt for a vaccine is also an irrational undertaking. 54 Even Reinhard Kurth, director of the Robert Koch Institute made a sobering comment in the Spiegel in 2004: “To tell the truth, we really don’t know exactly what has to happen in a vaccine so that it protects from AIDS.”55 Viral load measurements with the help of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are just as dubious and ultimately meaningless. As long as HN has not been proven to exist, these tests cannot be calibrated for In 2006, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shook again the foundation of the past decade of AIDS science right to the core, inciting skepticism and anger among many HN = AIDS advocates. A US nationwide team of orthodox AIDS researchers led by doctors Benigno Rodriguez and Michael Lederman of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland disputed the value of viral load tests-the standard used since 1996 to assess the patient’s health, predict progression to disease, and grant approval to new AIDS drugs-afterHN-and they cannot be used to measure “HN viral load.” Very fine traces of genes (DNA, RNA) may be detected, but whether they come from a (certain) virus, or from some other contamination, remains unclear. 56 Heinz Ludwig Sanger, professor of molecular biology and 1978 winner of the renowned Robert Koch Prize stated that “HN has never been isolated, for which reason its nucleic acids cannot be used in PCR virus load tests as the standard for giving evidence of HN.” Not coincidentally, relevant studies also confirm that PCR tests are worthless in AIDS diagnosis: for example, “Misdiagnosis of HN infections by HN- 1 viral load testing: a case series,” a 1994 paper published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. 57b their study of 2,800 positively tested people concluded viral load measures failed, in more than 90% of cases, to predict or explain immune status. While orthodox AIDS scientists and others protest or downplay the significance of the JAMA article, Rodriguez’s group stands by its conclusion that viral load is only able to predict progression to disease in 4% to 6% of (so-called) HIV positives studied, challenging much of the basis for current AIDS science and treatment policy. 58 The same controversy plagues tests that count CD4 helper cells. Not a single study confirms the most important principle of the HIV = AIDS theory: that HIV destroys CD4 cells by means of an infection.59 60 Furthermore, even the most significant of all AIDS studies, the 1994 Concorde study, questions using helper cell counts as a diagnostic method for AIDS61-and many studies corroborate this. One of these is the 1996 paper “Surrogate Endpoints in Clinical Studies: Are We Being Misled?” Printed in the Annals of Internal Medicine, the paper casually concludes that CD4 count in the HIV setting is as uniru:ormative as “a toss of a coin”-in other words, not at alJ. 62 – Virus Mania

This video makes the claim that the entire presentation of viruses is false. 

I am not sure I agree with this — however, this does bring up the question of why the CDC can’t seem to offer any examples of isolated viruses which is explained in the article. 


There is no evidence that the covid virus has been isolated. Considering the billions of dollars that have gone into this virus, with billions spent on vaccines this is very odd.
