Morgellons is a real disease

Real scandal or wild theory ?: That's what the Morgellons on the corona test sticks are all about


Videos are currently making the rounds on the Internet that are supposed to prove that so-called Morgellons were placed on corona masks and test sticks, which are supposed to make us sick. But is that true?

  • Covid-19 tests and masks are prepared with so-called Morgellons, which make you sick.

  • This theory is currently shared on different platforms.

  • But it is not true - behind the supposed pathogens there is harmlessness.

Videos are currently being sent on various platforms that are supposed to prove that the cotton swabs used to search for fragments of the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus in the throat and nose are anything but sterile. They are contaminated with so-called Morgellons, which, depending on the clip, are sometimes fibers, sometimes worms or parasites.

However, there is agreement that the pollution did not happen by chance. According to the explanations in the videos, the Morgellons are purposely placed in our brains where they are supposed to cause Morgellons disease. Who might want that and why is not clarified, but the question is asked: "What is the government planning to do with us?"

The answer is: Nothing, it has nothing to do with it. Because even though forensic biologist Mark Benecke deals with the subject of Morgellons from time to time and confirms its existence to a certain extent (see video above), the claims made in the clips are all false.

"There is no evidence of pathogens on the swabs, nor is there any Covid-19 research to suggest that there is any truth to this video," quoted Neysa Ernst from Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, US Maryland.

Aaron E. Glatt, spokesman for the Infection Diseases Society of America, also sees no truth in the videos. The Morgellons disease discussed in the clips actually does exist. But “there is no evidence that it is an infectious disease. It is not triggered by anything that moves. "

It is a “medically controversial disease with a delusional disease similar to the dermatozoa delusion”, as it is called in the medical lexicon “Pschyrembel”. Those affected reported medically undetectable fibers, insects or pollen threads in or on their skin, which are associated with various unspecific symptoms such as joint pain, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, itching and anxiety.

Morgellons have different faces

The fact that the videos sent around on Tiktok, Whatsapp and Telegram do not take the truth very seriously can also be seen in the description of the Morgellons, which in another clip are also called Morgellione: These are sometimes as fibers, sometimes as worms and described as a parasite yet another time. Sometimes even in the same film.

The Morgellons can actually have very different faces, as forensic biologist Benecke, who currently answers questions about the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus and the Covid-19 pandemic on, reveals after 20 years of dealing with the mysterious objects. "They are things that look like something living, but in reality they might be insects from the garden or - we see that most often - skin with clothing fibers." Often it is just clothing fibers - “maybe from blue work clothes in China?” Suspects Benecke on his Instagram channel. The expert also has a very simple explanation for the fact that they move: “This is called electrostatic forces. Or it happens because of moisture. "

However, these particles are not dangerous. Nor do they indicate that the products that are "infested" by the Morgellons are unclean, says Benecke: "The sticks are sterile because they are only sterilized after the sticks are ready."
