कोरोना की वैक्सीन लगवाने वाले सभी लोग अगले दो साल के अंदर मर जायेंगे : क्या है सच्चाई जानिये!

कोरोना की बीमारी पछले तक़रीबन दो साल से दुनियांभर में फैली हुई है अभी तक इस बीमारी से अकेले भारत में ही तीन लाख से ज़ियादा लोगों की मौत हो चुकी है जबकि कई करोड़ इस से एफ्फेक्टेड हैं, अभी तक कोरोना की कोई भी दवा या वैक्सीन मौजूद नहीं है जिसके बारे में कहा जा सके कि इसके इस्तेमाल से कोरोना नहीं होगा, जो वैक्सीन या दवाईयां कोरोना के मरीज़ों को दी जा रही हैं वो उनके पुराने नतीजों को देख कर अंदाज़े के बतौर दी जा रही हैं

कोरोना बीमारी से लोग मर रहे हैं, ये आगे कब तक रहेगा कोई भी नहीं कह सकता है लेकिन एक बहुत चिंतित करने वाली बात विश्व के एक बहुत बड़े वैज्ञानिक ने कही है, इस ख़बर के आने के बाद पूरी दुनियां में आग लगा दी है, खबर ही ऐसी ख़तरनाक़ है, नोबिल अवार्ड से सम्मानित लक मोन्टगॉनिएर (Lucmontagainer) ने कहा है कि उन लोगों के बचने की कोई गुंजाईश नहीं जिन लोगों ने कोरोना की कोई भी वैक्सीन लगवा ली है, नोबिल अवार्ड से सम्मानित वायरोलॉजिस्ट लक मोन्टगॉनिएर ने कहा है कि कोरोना की वैक्सीन लगवाने वाले सभी लोग अगले दो साल के अंदर मर जायेंगे,

कोरोना की तबाही के शुरू होते वक़्त लोगों को कोरोना की दवा का इन्तिज़ार था लेकिन कोरोना की जो वैक्सीन जब से सामने आयी हैं तभी से नयी नयी बातें-कहानियाँ सामने आ रही हैं, लोगों में कोरोना को लेकर पहले से ही खौफ है, वैक्सीन के बारे में अजीब तरह के खुलासे और चर्चाओं से आम आदमी और अधिक परेशान, खौफ में आ गया है, फ्रांस के अख़बार में प्रकाशित नोबिल अवार्ड से सम्मानित वायरोलॉजिस्ट लक मोन्टगॉनिएर की रिपोर्ट के सामने आने के बाद पूरी दुनियां में ख़ौफ़ फैल गया है, यूरोपीय देशों से लेकर अमेरिका तक में इस रिपोर्ट के आने के बाद से पैनिक की स्थिति हो गयी है,

Lucmontagainer ने कहा है कि विज्ञानं की ग़लती के साथ साथ मेडिकल केयर की भी कमियां हैं, ये नक़ाबले कुबूल ग़लतियाँ हैं, फाउंडेशन अमेरिका के ज़रिये पब्लिश किये गए एक इंटरव्यू में उन्होंने ये तमाम बातें कहीं, उन्होंने कहा कि कोरोना की वैक्सीन इंसानों में अन्य तरह की अनेक गंभीर समस्याएं पैदा कर रही हैं

सच्चाई : इस ख़बर के सामने आने के बाद तमाम बड़े मीडिया प्लेटफ़ार्म पर इस खबर को लेकर फैक्ट चैक प्रकाशित हुए हैं, जिसमे रियूटर, इंडिया टुडे, ऑल्ट न्यूज़, प्रिंट आदि ने जाँच कर लिखा है कि ये खबर बिलकुल ग़लत है और किसी ने अफवाह फैलाने के लिए व्हाट्सअप पर पोस्ट की थी, जहाँ से ये झूठी खबर वॉयरल हुई है

न्यूयॉर्क टाइम्स (New York Times) ने एक आंकलन कर बताया है कि इस साल जनवरी तक भारत में कोविड से मरने वालों (Covid Deaths) की संख्या 42 लाख से भी अधिक हो सकती है. दूसरी लहर की गिनती नहीं है. राहुल गांधी (Rahul Gandhi) ने इस खबर का लिंक ट्विटर (Twitter) पर साझा कर दिया तो स्वास्थ्य मंत्री डॉ हर्षवर्धन (Dr Harsh Vardhan) नाराज़ हो गए. उन्होंने लिख दिया कि लाशों पर राजनीति कांग्रेस स्टाइल. पेड़ों पर से गिद्ध भले ही लुप्त हो रहे हों, लेकिन लगता है उनकी ऊर्जा धरती के गिद्धों में समाहित हो रही है. राहुल गांधी को दिल्ली से अधिक न्यूयार्क टाइम्स पर भरोसा है. लाशों पर राजनीति करना कोई धरती के गिद्धों से सीखें. गिद्धों को लेकर स्वास्थ्य मंत्री की जानकारी ठीक नहीं है. उन्हें पता नहीं है कि उन्हीं की सरकार ने गिद्धों को बचाने के लिए पांच साल का एक एक्शन प्लान बनाया है. यह कार्यक्रम 2006 से चल रहा है. स्वास्थ्य मंत्री ने गिद्धों के प्रति जिस घृणा का प्रदर्शन किया है वह अफसोसनाक है.

Fact Check: Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier didn’t say Covid vaccine recipients will die in two years

A viral WhatsApp message claims that Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has said that all those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19 will die within two years. India Today’s AFWA probes the truth.

Fact-check: WhatsApp hoax claims Nobel laureate said all vaccinated people will die within 2 years

As if the panic created by the deadly second wave of the pandemic was not enough, a viral statement attributed to French virologist and Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has left netizens startled and scared. As per this statement, all those who have vaccinated themselves for Covid-19 will die within two years.

A clip of Luc’s interview is being circulated on social media in which he’s seen questioning the idea of vaccinating people during the pandemic.

“It’s unthinkable to vaccinate during a pandemic. They’re silent. It is the antibodies produced by the virus that enable the infection to become stronger. It is what we call antibody-dependent enhancement, which means antibodies favour a certain infection. It is clear that the new variants are created by antibody-mediated selection due to the vaccination,” Luc says in the French interview.

A Twitter user shared the video with the caption: All vaccinated people will die within 2 years. Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has confirmed that there is no chance of survival for people who have received any form of the vaccine. In the shocking interview, the world’s leading virologist stated bluntly: “There is no hope…”

India Today Anti Fake News War Room (AFWA) has found that though Luc had called the idea of vaccinating masses during the pandemic an unacceptable medical error and raised concern about antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE), he hasn’t said anything like all people who got themselves vaccinated for Covid-19 will die within two years.

Several websites have also published reports based on this claim. The archived version of the post can be seen here.

The interview in question has been carried by several news websites. Had Luc given such a shocking statement, it would have surely been carried by international media. But we did not find any such statement attributed to Luc in any credible media outlet.

On the right of the viral video, a logo of “Rair Foundation USA” can be seen. We did a keyword search and found the article on the website of “Rair Foundation USA”, which describes itself as a grassroots activist organisation.

 

In this report too, it isn’t written anywhere that people receiving a vaccination for Covid-19 will die within two years. The complete interview can be seen here.

What Luc said

The Nobel laureate has called mass vaccination against coronavirus during the pandemic “unthinkable” and a historic blunder that is “creating the variants” and leading to deaths from the disease. He has also raised concerns about antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE).

According to the Mary Ann Liebert “Coronavirus Resource Center,” virus-specific antibodies are in general considered antiviral and play an important role in controlling infections in a number of ways.

However, in some instances, the presence of specific antibodies can be beneficial to the virus. This activity is known as antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE). The ADE of virus infection is a phenomenon in which virus-specific antibodies enhance the entry of the virus, and in some cases, the replication of the virus.

The Press Information Bureau (PIB) has also refuted the claim, calling it fake. — Cecilia (@Ceciliafields) May 24, 2021

Luc’s history of controversial statements

Luc Montagnier was the joint recipient (along with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Harald Zur Hausen) of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). However, his nomination had led to massive controversy as there were allegations of theft and deception against him.

Thereafter, Luc created several controversies with his statements.

Last year, he’d said that the deadly coronavirus was manufactured in a laboratory in China’s Wuhan. Though this theory is yet to receive validation, it had created quite a sensation back then.

As per the French news website “The Connexion”, just one year after winning the Nobel prize, he had claimed that a good immune system was enough to protect people against AIDS. The report also says that Luc is known for being anti-vaccination, pro-homoeopathy, and believes that “water has memory”.

In 2017, he had opposed the French government’s decision to make certain vaccinations mandatory, accusing the policy of “poisoning the next generation little by little”. In response, 106 academicians and scientists had written an open letter, alleging that one of their peers is using his Nobel Prize status to spread dangerous health messages outside of his field of knowledge.

Thus, it is clear that though Luc Montagnier has indeed raised concerns around vaccination during the Covid-19 pandemic, but he has not said anything like people who vaccinate themselves will die within two years.

INDIA TODAY FACT CHECK

Claim – Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier has said that all those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19 will die within two years.

Conclusion – Though Luc has raised concerns around vaccinating masses during the pandemic, he has not said that people who vaccinate themselves for Covid-19 will die within two years.

Nobel laureate who found HIV now backs homoeopathy, anti-vaxxers & calls Covid a lab accident

French virologist Luc Montagnier went viral on WhatsApp for apparently saying ‘people who take any Covid vaccine won’t survive’. That’s fake, but he has made many such claims.

New Delhi: You are a French virologist, who co-discovered the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in 1983 and were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2008. Then, in the midst of a once-in-a-century global pandemic, you start making headlines on Indian WhatsApp, for apparently saying “there is no chance of survival for people who have received any form of the (Covid) vaccine”.

This is not a thought experiment; it’s the true story of Luc Montagnier who, in recent years, has taken a decisive turn away from the fabled ‘scientific temper’ and grabbed headlines for promoting baseless claims about vaccination, homoeopathy and most recently, Covid-19.

He didn’t actually say what the WhatsApp message claims he did; the fake forwarded message has been debunked by many. But the 88-year-old Montagnier has made several unverified assertions since the pandemic hit, and even before that.

In April last year, when little was known about the novel coronavirus, Montagnier had claimed in an interview to a French news channel that the “presence of elements of HIV in the genome of the coronavirus and even elements of the ‘germ of malaria’ are highly suspect”, alleging that this was the result of trying to formulate a vaccine against AIDS.

However, around the same time, he also claimed that Covid-19 was a man-made virus from the Wuhan Institute of Virology — a hypothesis that has gained increasing currency but still remains unverified.

Earlier, he supported controversial theories like ‘DNA emits electro-magnetic waves’, and tried to give credibility to anti-vaxxers. A year after winning the Nobel Prize, he claimed that a “good immune system” is enough to protect one from AIDS, and also supported a discredited theory of water having memory — the basis of homoeopathy.

In 2017, Montagnier was even at the receiving end of the scientific community’s ire, when he condemned the French government for making certain vaccines mandatory, suggesting this is “poisoning the next generation little by little”.

Following this, 106 scientists wrote an open letter to him, saying: “We, academics of medicine, cannot accept that one of our peers is using his Nobel prize [status] to spread dangerous health messages outside of his field of knowledge.”

Lost credibility

Montagnier was born on 18 August 1932 in the French commune of Chabris. He earned a degree in science in 1953 and medicine in 1960 at the universities of Poitiers and Paris, and joined the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1972 as a research scientist. It is here that he discovered HIV with fellow scientist Francoise Barré-Sinoussi in 1983.

They eventually got the Nobel for this discovery in 2008, but Montagnier began to lose credibility around that time — his grant applications began to be rejected, leaving him with no money to pursue his work.

In a 2010 interview to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, he claimed he was leaving Europe for China to “escape the intellectual terror” and to study electromagnetic waves which he believes are emitted by “highly diluted DNA of various pathogens”.

“I’m no longer allowed to work at a public institute (in France). I have applied for funding from other sources, but I have been turned down,” he said.

The year before, Montagnier had published two controversial studies, one of which claimed “water can carry information via an electromagnetic imprint from DNA and other molecules”. The study was published in a journal whose editorial board he is on. Two decades before Montagnier’s study, another French scientist Jacques Benveniste had written “that water can retain ‘memories’ of compounds even when diluted at a very high level”.

Montagnier’s paper left Swiss immunologist Alain de Weck “perplexed”, while Andy Lewis — who hosts the blog The Quackometer — said in an email to ScienceInsider: “This is classic pathological science — dredging around in the noise of irreproducible experiments by practitioners whose expertise is not in these fields in order to support hypotheses that fly in the face of well-established scientific principles.”

In an address to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Germany in 2010, Montagnier expressed indirect support for homoeopathy.

“I can’t say that homoeopathy is right in everything. What I can say now is that the high dilutions (used in homoeopathy) are right. High dilutions of something are not nothing. They are water structures which mimic the original molecules,” he was quoted as saying by The Huffington Post (now HuffPost).

His current whereabouts could not be verified independently; there’s little reliable information about him to be found on the internet.

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2008

Born: 18 August 1932, Chabris, France

Affiliation at the time of the award: World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention, Paris, France

Prize motivation: “for their discovery of human immunodeficiency virus.”

Work

Retroviruses are viruses whose genomes consist of RNA and whose genes can be incorporated into host cells’ DNA. In 1983, Luc Montaigner and Françoise Barré-Sinoussi discovered a retrovirus in patients with swollen lymph glands that attacked lymphocytes – a kind of blood cell that is very important to the body’s immune system. The retrovirus, later named Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), proved to be the cause of the immunodeficiency disease AIDS. This discovery has been crucial in radically improving treatment methods for AIDS sufferers. Work
