This fascinating video was submitted by a reader of In Other News. In it, Sayer Ji and Dr. Andrew Kaufman discuss the new Omicron variant and, how it is being used to “boost the numbers.”
This video claims that neither the SARS-Cov2 virus nor its Omicron variant have been either isolated or imaged using electron microscope technology. I investigated that claim and found several images, claiming to be of SARS-Cov2 virus.

Transmission electron microscopy imaging of SARS-CoV-2

However, I also found an article on the National Institute of Health (USA) website, which suggests that the images in fact may not show virus particles but instead show cross-sections of normal cell structure.
“However, we believe the EM images in the Correspondence do not show coronavirus particles but instead show cross-sections of the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER). These spherical structures are surrounded by dark dots, which might have been interpreted as spikes on coronavirus particles but are instead ribosomes. The purported particles are free within the cytoplasm, whereas within a coronavirus-infected cell, accumulations of virus particles would be found in membrane-bound areas in the cisternae…”Electron microscopy of SARS-CoV-2: a challenging task
