Amid reports of vaccine hesitancy, US-based website LifeSite throws a bombshell by running an article with the headline, ‘all vaccinated people will die withing two years’ attributing it to Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier with his photograph. Fear gripped, prompting several governments as well as media outlets to track the source of the news, with many calling it fake.
What concerned the people most is the “blatant death claim” which the Nobel laureate did not make at the first place. The statement was bound to trigger panic in a country where more than 20 million have been administered with the coronavirus vaccine. Besides this, the article raised several questions on vaccine efficacy. However, the Nobel laureate reportedly told the portal that “vaccinating during a pandemic is ‘unthinkable’ and is causing deaths.”
The portal quoted the world’s renowned virologist as saying, “It’s an enormous mistake, isn’t it? A scientific error as well as a medical error. It is an unacceptable mistake,” Montagnier said in an interview translated and published by the RAIR Foundation USA yesterday. “The history books will show that, because it is the vaccination that is creating the variants.” “It is the antibodies produced by the virus that enable an infection to become stronger,” he said in an interview with Pierre Barnérias of Hold-Up Media earlier this month.
According to the portal, the famous French virologist created waves in April 2020 when he told a French television station that he believed SARS-CoV2, the new pandemic coronavirus, was man-made in a laboratory. The “presence of elements of HIV and germ of malaria in the genome of coronavirus is highly suspect and the characteristics of the virus could not have arisen naturally,” he said.
