Professor Luc Montagnier, a French scientist whose Paris laboratory discovered the HIV virus in the 1980s, has passed away aged 89. Montagnier earned a joint Nobel Prize in 2008 for his work in identifying HIV.
His mortal death on February 8 was ignored by ‘on-message’ media and scientists but was confirmed on January 10 by the mayor of Paris suburb Neuilly-sur-Seine where he had been hospitalised. Montagnier died peacefully on Tuesday surrounded by his children.
The professor earned worldwide acclaim when his lab team at the Pasteur Institute discovered a previously-unknown virus in 1983. French and American scientists then worked on analysing the virus HIV. In 1986. Montagnier was co-awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2008 alongside virologist Francoise Barré-Sinoussi for identifying the virus.
He was also the co-founder of the World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention and co-directed the Program for International Viral Collaboration. In addition, he received more than 20 awards and honorary titles, including being made a Grand Officer in France’s Legion of Honour, the country’s highest military or civilian award.
However, Montagnier was condemned by some colleagues in later years for speaking in favour of homeopathic medicine and for promoting fermented papaya as a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. He was also an opponent of vaccines, a stance he maintained throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Montagnier also said he believed that Covid-19 originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
Following news of his death Montagnier is being remembered as one of the key figures in researching, understanding, and transforming HIV from the death sentence it was in the 1980s to the survivable illness it is today.
The French government has not uttered a word about the death of a great scientist, not a word about mourning. A commentator writes: ‘It is a government of shame, lies and grudge. However, this is expected.
On February 12, on Saturday, there will be a mass demonstration in honour of his memory – in front of the PfiXEP headquarters in Paris. The people will gather under the office of the criminal laboratory to remind the world the words of the great scientist.
His recent advice that those who have taken three Covid experimental vaccines should immediately go to the laboratory and get tested for AIDS (VIV). He said: ‘The result may surprise you.’
