Questions are being raised about the scientific credentials of Dr Poornima WaghSun 9:45 am Europe/London, 4 Sep 2022 2
Our search for the scientific credentials of the latest ‘covid truth’ celeb turns up nothing. Poornima Wagh claims to have worked on analysis of 756 samples proving SARS-CoV-2 does not exist. Did she?
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine Responds, Aug. 30 and Sept. 1
UPDATE: The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has checked in with the following statement this morning from their press office: “Nobody by the name of Poornima Wagh has obtained a degree from our institution.” We have also received a second confirmation from Roger Watson: “I have it from the dean of Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases at LSHTM, Alison Grant, that nobody of her name has obtained any degree from their institution.” Update Thursday, September 1: The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has confirmed: “Nobody with the last name Wagh, including as part of a hyphenated surname or as part of a surname containing the letters in that order, has obtained a degree from this institution.” — efc. PS — Dougie Jones, anyone?
Salisbury College Responds, Sept. 1
UPDATE: Poornima Wagh claims a degree in finance from Salisbury University, December 1995. However, the graduation program lists her as Liberal Studies. I contacted the campus and, after bouncing around the telephone system, landed in the president’s office. There, I learned that the Finance Department has been under the Purdue Business School since its founding in 1986. Liberal Studies is under the Fulton School, which is an entirely different academic region of the University. — efc

SOMEONE CLAIMING TO HOLD TWO DOCTORATES from the world-renowned London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine is the latest sensation of the health freedom movement — distinctive because she claims to be an accredited virologist who states declaratively that SARS-CoV-2 does not exist.
Wagh claims to have participated in a massive laboratory project in early 2020 that attempted to sequence 756 samples of lung fluid taken from supposedly “covid”-positive patients in California — only to find that none of them contained any such virus particles whatsoever.
For the growing number of people who assert that SARS-CoV-2 has never been isolated and cannot be tested for, she is a dream come true — a scientific unicorn providing long sought-after vindication.
What is different here is that the “no virus” side of the discussion is generally stating that various genetic sequences have been falsely declared as belonging to “SARS-CoV-2” in computer simulations. These are hypothetical “genomes,” called in silicosequences, that have never been shown to match an actual virus or cause disease. Wagh is saying that they couldn’t even find those theoretical sequences in their hundreds of samples, much less whole virus particles.
Meanwhile, more than two hundred governments and institutions around the world deny having any record of a sample of SARS-CoV-2 taken from a human host. If what she is saying is true, Wagh provides a critical layer of validation of this position — and she is being welcomed with open arms by the health freedom or “covid” truth movement.
In addition to having extraordinary public support for a scientific dissident, significant public presenters are noticing Wagh. For example, Dr. Lee Merritt, when introducing Wagh in an Aug. 17 video, said the interview was “the most important video she had done” since the covid crisis began.
She has been interviewed numerous times by vlogger Regis Tremblay, with one video getting more than 63,000 views so far.
After a webinar presentation held Sunday, Aug. 28, her co-panelist Reiner Füllmich was so impressed that he invited her to appear before his well-known and widely-respected Corona Investigative Committee. Like many mainstream “covid” truth organizations, this panel has a tendency to be hostile to the no-virus position — but they are open to her. It’s as if she’s the presenter everyone has been waiting for.
Despite the credible efforts of many doctors and scientists during the past 30 months of the crisis, Poornima Wagh is now being held up as the official whistle-blowing insider scientist with long-awaited, irrefutable proof that no SARS-CoV-2 virus exists.
Welcome to old-school investigative reporting. Worth paying for!
Thanks for putting me onto this danceaway. She caught me hook line and sinker and rod and reel. She just exuded genuineness.
Could she have even been an agent spreading lies just too muddy things a little. Who knows.
Not just you, all of us, Ian. Including Dr Lee Merritt, Regis Tremblay, and the Expose, all of whom introduced her to us without question, as this author points out. I still do not know what to think, as the graphene oxide problem has been pointed out by others, and the hydrogel as well, so I am not ready to discount them yet.
