Prof. Marius Ilie et. al: Negative controls were also positive❗️
 
 This confirms: They are not "disease-causing viruses"
 
Marius Ilié et. al. from the "Université Côte d'Azur - Faculty of Medicine" confirmed to us on written request not only that they carried out control experiments, but also confirmed the results we had published through our own control experiments. 
 
The authors of the publication "Setting-Up a Rapid SARS-CoV-2 Genome Assessment by Next-Generation Sequencing in an Academic Hospital Center (LPCE, Louis Pasteur Hospital, Nice, France)", which involved over 20 scientists, replied:
 
 Prof. Marius Ilie et. al: "[...] Since then, however, we have also sequenced negative samples in routine practice and, interestingly, NGS finds some weakly positive samples."

Guillaume Croville et. al. - Control experiments are necessary, unfortunately we did not perform any❗️
 
The scientists of the publication "First French draft genome sequence of Monkeypox virus, may 2022" confirmed to us upon written request that they unfortunately did not carry out any control experiments to eliminate doubts. 
 
This applies to all publications worldwide, they are not isolated cases. We will publish correspondence from many countries. 
 
 Guillaume Croville et. al...: 
 
"Unfortunately, we did not carry out controls for several reasons" [...]. 
 
"I fully accept that all these reasons are not good" [...]. 
 
"You're absolutely right about the controls we need to do for sequencing, but also for the bioinformatics process, and that's something I'm thinking about to be able to do robust analyses in the near future."
