Ebola pandemic. Flashing outbreaks of “animal” flu. The massive spread of the “plague of the XXI century” – AIDS. Pharmaceutical companies report on the creation of the next “miracle vaccines” against these misfortunes. But unfortunately…
All kinds of “pioneers” of panacea for monstrous diseases earn billions from their highly controversial vaccines. But at the same time they like to refer in every possible way to the great forerunner – the “disinterested” Robert Koch, the Nobel laureate and the “conqueror of tuberculosis”.
Heinrich Hermann Robert Koch was rightly considered the head of European microbiologists. A simple rural doctor, he had passion for scientific research. Working in a primitive rural laboratory, Koch developed a number of new methods in the study of microbes. In 1871, his wife gave Robert a microscope for his birthday, and since then he spent all days at the device examining various tissues … In 1890, Koch invented tuberculin – a drug designed for mass tuberculin diagnostics in the form of a Mantoux test. His whole life is an example of the asceticism of a scientist who has treated people in different countries of the world.
