Is Poornima Wagh a Fraud?



Charlatan’s Web

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.

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.

The Questions Nobody’s Been Asking Until Now

There is just one problem.

Is everything she is saying true? Did she really earn two simultaneous doctorates from the London School of Tropical Medicine, one in virology and one in immunology, in under four years? 

Did she really play a key role on a team that attempted de novo sequencing of 756 samples of lung fluid taken from “covid” patients suffering from pneumonia, finding no viral material whatsoever — as she has repeatedly claimed?

Did she really do her doctoral work at one of the most prestigious medical institutes in the world — which research concluded that HIV infection does not exist?

It seems that until now, none of the people who have interviewed her have made any effort to verify or corroborate her claims, nor has anyone attempted to vet her doctoral degrees or work history prior to putting her on the air.

Excerpts from:

End of the Line for Poornima Wagh?

As previously reported, Poornima Wagh appeared on the world stage 3/2022, recycling much of the material produced by a team of folks I call “#TeamNoVirus”. But with a twist.

She claimed to have 2x PhDs from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, that she had tested 1,500 or 756 patient samples, finding “no COVID” in any of them. But are these facts true?

Planet Waves FM did a search for the claimed scientific credentials of this latest ‘covid truth’ celeb, and turned up nothing.

Wagh was also unable to cite any published paper, or supply any evidence whatsoever of any the purported testing. There are many other details of her claims which are unsubstiantiated, and cannot be verified.

Kudos to my trusted colleague journalist Eric Francis Coppolino (Planetwaves FM, Substack) for incredible research & reporting which you can read here.

I’m really sad about this, because I was holding out hope until the very end that there was some kind of explanation for all of the anomalies in her background, CV, and the fantastic stories she was telling. I really wanted to believe in her.

But I can’t see how she can recover from this.

Stay tuned to Planetwaves FM and also follow Eric’s Substack for updates.
