The documentary-styled video claiming COVID-19 as a planned pandemic took the internet like storm until it was banned from the social media and the main website domain hosting the same was also taken down by the internet service providers across the globe – post fact-checks and remarks from medical researchers. But the video is still being surfaced across various digital channels.
Based on various media reports, the video was a part of an upcoming movie called Plandemic. The 26-minute video features Judy Mikovits, former research director at the Whittemore Peterson Institute; and Mikki Willis, filmmaker and the producer of the Plandemic film. The video runs in an interview format – claiming that Mikovits was a part of the team that discovered HIV, revolutionized HIV treatment, and was jailed without charges for her scientific positions.
In the video, Mikovits accuses Anthony Fauci, head of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and a member of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, of being responsible for the deaths of millions during the early years of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. On top of that, Judy claimed that the COVID-19 virus was engineered to increase vaccination rates.
Who is Judy Mikovits
Mikovits started her career as a lab technician at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in 1988. She became a scientist and obtained a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from George Washington University in 1991. By 2009, she was research director at the Whittemore Peterson Institute (WPI), a private research center in Reno, Nevada, but she remained largely unknown to the scientific community. That year, however, she co-authored a paper in Science that suggested an obscure agent named xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) caused chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) – leading to controversy that led Mikovits behind bars in 2011.
