FACT – Puppies cause the Coronavirus


At the exact moment the first case of the Coronavirus was contracted in Wuhan, China, a litter of puppies was born in Zhifang, a town just 16.39 miles from the epicentre of the deadly disease. On 31st January 2020, when two Chinese tourists tested positive for Corvid-19 in Rome, in the quartiere Monti, a neighbourhood of the city, Gigi, a Labrador Spaniel cross, gave birth to a litter of five puppies. Indeed, in virtually every confirmed case of Coronavirus in the world, a litter of puppies has been born within a 25-mile radius of where the virus is known to have been contracted less than 24 hours earlier. This cannot be a coincidence! But, have you read about this startling scientific evidence? No, you haven’t. Have you seen it on the news? No, you haven’t. Why? Because the deep state, the Illuminati, big pharma, Bill Gates, and those with a stake in the lucrative canine world order don’t want you to know. Crufts and the RSPCA, along with their left-wing cronies in the fake-news media, have repressed the story for their own nefarious, but unspecified, reasons. But I am here to speak the truth.

Or not.

The above is clearly a parody, or at best heavy-handed satire, but it illustrates an important point: correlation is not causation. Lurking in the fuzzy edges and the unlit corners of the internet, but increasingly worming and slithering into the more mainstream areas, are the Coronavirus conspiracy theorists. They pedal bizarre and ill-informed pseudoscientific theories about the cause of Corvid-19 and how it should be dealt with. A case in point; the other day a friend of mine sent me a video she thought I might be interested in. A casually but smartly dressed man stands in front of a whiteboard which has some vaguely scientific drawings on it. He is addressing an unseen audience, but the impression is certainly that of a university lecturer dispensing wisdom to his students. He speaks fluently and authoritatively on a subject he is obviously passionate about. He is Dr Thomas Cowan.

For 10 minutes and 40 seconds, Dr Cowan explains that the symptoms attributed to Coronavirus are not caused by a virus at all but by the roll-out of 5G connectivity. Every pandemic over the last 150 years has, he explains, been caused by the increasing electrification of the earth. Viruses, he tells us

“are pieces of DNA or RNA, with a few other proteins…They happen when the cell is poisoned. They are not the cause of anything… When your cells get poisoned. They try to purify themselves by excreting debris, which we call viruses…”

In actual fact, viruses are a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea. They are transmitted in a myriad of ways, including insects, coughs and sneezes, sex, on food and in water. And, I’m sorry Dr Cowan, viruses cause countless different diseases including HIV, influenza, the common cold, chickenpox, smallpox, rabies, Ebola virus, herpes and countless others.

Dr Cowan goes on to say

“So, what happened in 1918? There was a huge pandemic – and every pandemic in the last 150 years, there was a quantum leap in the electrification of the Earth, in 1918, late, late fall of 1917, there was the introduction of radio waves around the world.

Whenever you expose any biological system to a new electromagnetic field, you poison it, you kill some and the rest go into a kind of suspended animation so that interestingly, they live a little bit longer – and sicker…

In 1968, there was the Hong Kong Flu and it was the first time the Earth has a protective layer in the Van Allen Belt, which essentially integrates the cosmic fields from the Sun and the Earth from the Moon and Jupiter, etc., integrates that and essentially distributes that to the living beings of the Earth.

And we put satellites emitting radioactive frequencies in the Van Allen Belt. Within six months, we had a viral pandemic. Why viral? Because the people are poisoned. They excrete toxins. They look like viruses. People think it’s a flu epidemic…”

A little later he says

“And I will only finish by pointing out that there has been a dramatic and quantum leap in the last six months with the electrification of the Earth. And I’m sure a lot of you know what that is, it’s called: 5G, where there now have 20,000 radiation-emitting satellites, just like the radiation-emitting thing in your pocket and on your wrist and that you use all the time.

“And I’ll finish with, anybody want to make one guess as to where the first completely-blanketed 5G city in the world was? Wuhan, exactly.

“So, when you start thinking about this, we are in an existential crisis here, Folks, the likes of which humankind has never seen and I don’t want to go all Old Testament prophet on you, but this is something that is unprecedented…

“The susceptibility has to do with how much metal you have in your body, as well as the quality of the water in your cells.”

During the course of the video Dr Cowan refers to poisoned dolphins and frogs, experiments carried out during the Spanish flu pandemic involving injecting infected snot into healthy people and horses sneezing into nosebags. I kid you not. By the way, I can’t find any information about the snot and the horse experiments that don’t point back to Dr Cowan as the source. There is also an anecdote about an electrician with a metal plate in his arm who becomes ill because electricity now affects him.

Just about everything Dr Cowan says is wrong, ill-informed or misinterpreted. Hang on, you may say, you aren’t a doctor or a physicist, you write comedy sketches and blog about being disabled and being a one-man strain on the NHS. What qualifies you to judge a doctor? I hold my hands up, I have no relevant qualification. But, I do have the ability to read around a subject, check sources and fact-check. I have read around Dr Cowan’s theory about 5G and I have read around the opposing view, that 5G has absolutely nothing to do with the Coronavirus, and there is no equivalency. By this, I mean that the two opposing views do not carry equal weight. There is no verifiable evidence for one and a ton of peer-reviewed scientific research and evidence for the other.

5G is not really new technology. As the name suggests, it’s the 5th generation of an established technology, a progression from 3G then 4G.

China relies on “sub-6” airwaves that are between common 4G and Wi-Fi frequencies for its 5G network. 4G is around 2GHz, and 5G is around 3.5GHz, Wi-Fi uses 5GHz. It’s well-trodden territory that has been around for more than a decade. These are not the “millimetre wave” systems that so concern the conspiracy theorists. Millimetre-wave is still safe, by the way, but this isn’t even millimetre-wave. These frequencies are weak; so weak they can’t even penetrate tinted windows. In addition, these frequencies are from the non-ionising end of the radiation spectrum. Radiation sounds scary, but visible light is radiation. If you visualise a rainbow, red at one end and violet at the other, the frequencies beyond violet are ionising and therefore harmful, which is why we use sunscreen to protect against ultraviolet light. Further out from ultraviolet are the evermore harmful radiation frequencies of the Chernobyl kind. To the left, on the red end of the spectrum, we have infrared and the non-ionising radiation, where we find radio waves (Long-wave, Medium-wave, etc), television signals and wi-fi. And 3G, 4G and, more recently, 5G.

Dr Cowan tells us that Huwan was the first city ‘blanketed’ with 5G coverage. Yes, Huwan did have 5G turned on on November 1st, but so did 49 other cities in China. Besides, nine US cities had 5G months before Wuhan. Some cities in the UK have 5G, Birmingham, for example, has had it since last summer. President Trump doesn’t talk about the Birmingham virus. Japan, which does not have 5G still has Coronavirus, as do many countries in Africa. How, Dr Cowan, can this be, if the virus is only a symptom of 5G poisoning?

Why does all this matter? Why am I expending time and energy writing about this instead of writing about my near-fatal experiences back in 2018? I’m writing about this because Dr Cowan’s 10-minute 40-second video has gone viral – oh, the irony. Superficially, it sounds vaguely plausible – 5G rolls out and suddenly the world is sick; there must be a link. But remember, as I said near the start of this post – correlation is not causation.

If you believe that Corvid-19 is caused by 5G poisoning our cells, and if you believe that the virus is merely a symptom of this poisoning and is therefore not contagious, then there is no point self-isolating or maintaining social-distancing. After all, if someone is poisoned by Arsenic, for example, you wouldn’t stay 2 metres away from them for fear of catching Arsenic-itis. At present, the only means we have to contain this disease is to remain apart from each other. If the solution were simply to turn off some mobile phone masts, you would like to think that someone might have tried it already.

Finally, who is Dr Thomas Cowan? According to the ‘Meet the Staff’ page of the Dr Thomas Cowan’s Fourfold Healing website, he graduated from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in 1984. After his residency in Family Practice at Johnson City Hospital in Johnson City, New York, he set up an anthroposophical medical practice in Peterborough, New Hampshire. He’s since relocated to San Francisco. Virtually everything written about him is either written by himself or his colleagues or is so hagiographic that it’s useless. I did read that he is currently suspended from medical practice for proscribing unlicensed medication and not informing his patient. However, I have not been able to reliably verify this. I did discover that David Icke is a fan. If you remember who David Icke is you will understand the level of murkiness and depth of delusion that I’ve wading about in.

Right near the end of his lecture, Dr Cowan says something that I find truly terrifying –

“So, if you start injecting aluminum in people, they become receptors for absorbing increased electromagnetic fields and that is a perfect storm for the kind of deterioration of the species, which is what we’re now experiencing.”

In my next post, I will explain, if you haven’t already guessed, why I find this sentence so alarming, especially given the situation we are all enduring just now.

N.B. I have not provided a link to the Cowan video because I don’t want the imps that run around the internet making algorithmic links between my site and the kind of sites that host this nonsense. You will have no problem finding the video via a search engine if you want to spend 10 minutes 40 seconds in an alternative reality.

    Well put!
    I can’t say I am surprised by his end-of-lecture remarks: ignorance begets ignorance, especially in matters of public health sadly.
    Hope you are all staving off boredom in lockdown better than I am!

    • Stephen Deal on 25/03/2020 at 11:19 am

      Hi Oscar,
      I’m rarely bored, there’s too much to read. I hope you are locked down at home and not in Oxford. This whole Corvid-19 business must be messing with your studies, and just as doctors are at something of a premium. Stay safe.

      • Rob Tunnicliff on 25/03/2020 at 8:45 pm

        Well written as usual, there are also of worrying people out there, neither mind the ones who don’t care, keep very safe, love to you all.

    • Kerry Dobinson on 25/03/2020 at 12:10 pm

      What a great read Stephen. You definently do alot more research into material you read on the internet than I do and I will certainly be forwarding any other conspirisy theory’s onto you in the future. The Earth has always been a mad place, but it has become crazier in the past weeks. I suppose we seek comfort in any explanations, especially in times of uncertainty, making us in damager of absorbing rubbish theory’s like this one.
      Thanks for doing the research.

    Hello Stephen. Really enjoying the blog. Thank you.
    This one demonstrates wonderful example of the logical fallacy ‘post hoc ergo propter hoc’ – after this, therefore, because of this. The best example I know involves spiders. The experiment goes like this. You place a largish spider in a container and then put the container on a table. You then make lots of noise, banging the table and shouting. This causes the spider to scuttle around. You then pull the legs off the spider and repeat the banging and shouting. The spider does not move. Thus demonstrating that spiders hear through their legs.
    Keep safe and well and writing.
    All love

    Excellent analysis, thanks.

    Being English I didn’t speak to you in that lift in Scarborough in 1993, Stephen. I absolutely loved your sketches that year & was lucky enough to participate in some back home the following year. I don’t know what made me look you up on the internet last week, but delighted to be re-acquainting myself with your humour. I shall check in again.

  5. Donna on 02/07/2020 at 3:44 pm

    Just wondering how you and Polly are holding up.

  6. John on 04/04/2021 at 5:16 am

    Well written friend, but you totally mischaracterize Dr. Cowan. Had you decided to do real homework before writing a disparaging piece about this man (other than your Google based fact check), you would know that he merely wonders if 5G contributed. If you study and understand human biology, and you understand that all cells in the human body actually communicate through a myriad of frequencies… if you understand, for example, how different frequencies of light have different effects in different ways on different cell types in the body, or how different frequencies elicit differing hormone secretions depending on the frequency (e.g. UV or infrared)… we know UV light makes vitamin D and we know blue light destroys melatonin… If you know these facts, all of a sudden it makes sense how these cell frequencies chronically can disrupt a slew of biological processes. Read The Body Electric by Becker. This is not fringe, nut job conspiracy stuff brother.

    But the whole point of Cowan’s book is not what caused Covid (again 5G is simply him wondering, making an educated guess). The whole point of the book is that he has researched thousands of studies on viruses and has never once found a study that proved viruses or germs cause sickness. He has all the studies posted on his website for the record (you hint that he is making up some of these studies out of thin air because Google of all places didn’t yield them in your search results). He backs up everything he says. He has found that studies claiming to have isolated a given virus have not in fact done so. In no case do they actually isolate a virus. They will do some filtering but then typically pull out the supernatant band from the centrifuge use that! Maybe they have some virus in it, maybe not. But the point is they completely ignore the scientific method. They use samples containing a whole slew of particles, starve some CEO cells
    In a Petri dish, inject them with strong antibiotics, THEN put this not-isolated substance into the dish… and when they see breakdown of cells, they exclaim “We’ve proven this virus causes the disease!” Fact is they have never been able to make a test subject sick using snot, mucous, etc from an infected subject. These are facts. I had a hard time with it too, but I did my homework. I suggest you read his book and deep dive into the research. Not what Google pukes out. Then if you want to trash this decent man online go right ahead.
