Coronavirus, Vaccines and the Gates Foundation

Global Research – May 2, 2020 – F. William Engdahl

First published on March 20, 2020

Arguably, no one has been more active in promoting and funding research on vaccines aimed at dealing with coronavirus than Bill Gates and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. From sponsoring a simulation of a coronavirus global pandemic, just weeks before the Wuhan outbreak was announced, to funding numerous corporate efforts to come up with a novel vaccine for the apparently novel virus, the Gates presence is there. What does it actually entail?

We must admit that at the very least Bill Gates is prophetic. He has claimed for years that a global killer pandemic will come and that we are not prepared for it. On March 18, 2015 Gates gave a TED talk on epidemics in Vancouver. That day he wrote on his blog, “I just gave a brief talk on a subject that I’ve been learning a lot about lately—epidemics. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a tragedy—as I write this, more than 10,000 people have died.” Gates then added, “As awful as this epidemic has been, the next one could be much worse. The world is simply not prepared to deal with a disease—an especially virulent flu, for example—that infects large numbers of people very quickly. Of all the things that could kill 10 million people or more, by far the most likely is an epidemic.”

That same year, 2015, Bill Gates wrote an article for the New England Journal of Medicine titled, “The Next Epidemic: Lessons from Ebola.” There he spoke of a special class of drugs that “involves giving patients a set of particular RNA-based constructs that enables them to produce specific proteins(including antibodies).Although this is a very new area, it is promising because it is possible that a safe therapy could be designed and put into large-scale manufacture fairly rapidly. More basic research as well as the progress of companies like Moderna and CureVac could eventually make this approach a key tool for stopping epidemics.” Moderna and CureVac both today receive funds from the Gates Foundation and are leading the race to develop an approved COVID-19 vaccine based on mRNA.

2017 and Founding of CEPI

A global flu-like pandemic in fact is something that Gates and his well-endowed foundation have spent years preparing for. In 2017 during the Davos World Economic Forum, Gates initiated something called CEPI, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, together with the governments of Norway, India, Japan, and Germany, along with the Wellcome Trust of the UK. Its stated purpose is to “accelerate the development of vaccines we’ll need to contain outbreaks” of future epidemics. He noted at the time that “One promising area of vaccine development research is using advances in genomics to map the DNA and RNA of pathogens and make vaccines.” We will return to that.

Event 201

By 2019 Bill Gates and the foundation were going full-tilt boogie with their pandemic scenarios. He made a Netflix video which made an eerie imaginary scenario. The video, part of the “Explained” series, imagined a wet market in China where live and dead animals are stacked and a highly deadly virus erupts that spreads globally. Gates appears as an expert in the video to warn, “If you think of anything that could come along that would kill millions of people, a pandemic is our greatest risk.” He said if nothing was done to better prepare for pandemics, the time would come when the world would look back and wish it had invested more into potential vaccines. That was weeks before the world heard about bats and a live wet market in Wuhan China.

In October, 2019 the Gates Foundation teamed up with the World Economic Forum and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security to enact what they called a “fictional” scenario simulation involving some of the world’s leading figures in public health. It was titled Event 201.

As their website describes it, Event 201 simulated an “outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic. The pathogen and the disease it causes are modeled largely on SARS, but it is more transmissible in the community setting by people with mild symptoms.”After the Lockdown: A Global Coronavirus Vaccination Program…

In the Event 201 scenario the disease originates at a pig farm in Brazil, spreading through low-income regions and ultimately explodes into an epidemic. The disease is carried by air travel to Portugal, the USA and China and beyond to the point no country can control it. The scenario posits no possible vaccine being available in the first year. “Since the whole human population is susceptible, during the initial months of the pandemic, the cumulative number of cases increases exponentially, doubling every week.”

The scenario then ends after 18 months when the fictional coronavirus has caused 65 million deaths. “The pandemic is beginning to slow due to the decreasing number of susceptible people. The pandemic will continue at some rate until there is an effective vaccine or until 80-90 % of the global population has been exposed.”

Event 201 Players

As interesting as the prescient Gates-Johns Hopkins Event 201 fictional scenario of October, 2019 may be, the list of panelists who were invited to participate in the imaginary global response is equally interesting.

Among the selected “players” as they were called, was George Fu Gao. Notably, Prof. Gao is director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention since 2017. His specialization includes research on “influenza virus interspecies transmission (host jump)… He is also interested in virus ecology, especially the relationship between influenza virus and migratory birds or live poultry markets and the bat-derived virus ecology and molecular biology.” Bat-derived virus ecology…

Prof. Gao was joined among others at the panel by the former Deputy Director of the CIA during the Obama term, Avril Haines. She also served as Obama’s Assistant to the President and Principal Deputy National Security Advisor. Another of the players at the Gates event was Rear Admiral Stephen C. Redd, Director of the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The same CDC is at the center of a huge scandal for not having adequate functioning tests available for testing cases of COVID-19 in the USA. Their preparedness was anything but laudable.

Rounding out the group was Adrian Thomas, the Vice President of scandal-ridden Johnson & Johnson, the giant medical and pharmaceutical company. Thomas is responsible for pandemic preparedness at J&J including developing vaccines for Ebola, Dengue Fever, HIV. And there was Martin Knuchel, Head of Crisis, Emergency & Business Continuity Management, for Lufthansa Group Airlines. Lufthansa has been one of the major airlines dramatically cutting flights during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

All this shows that Bill Gates has had a remarkable preoccupation with the possibility of a global pandemic outbreak he said could be even larger than the alleged deaths from the mysterious 1918 Spanish Flu, and has been warning for at least the past five years or more. What the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also has been involved in is funding development of new vaccines using bleeding-edge CRISPR gene-editing and other technologies.

The Coronavirus Vaccines

Gates Foundation money is backing vaccine development on every front. Inovio Pharmaceuticals of Pennsylvania received $9 million from the Gates-backed CEPI, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, to develop a vaccine, INO-4800, which is about to test on humans in April, a suspiciously rapid time frame. In addition Gates Foundation just gave the company an added $5 million to develop a proprietary smart device for intradermal delivery of the new vaccine.

In addition Gates Foundation monies via CEPI are financing development of a radical new vaccine method known as messengerRNA or mRNA.

They are co-funding the Cambridge, Massachusetts biotech company, Moderna Inc., to develop a vaccine against the Wuhan novel coronavirus, now called SARS-CoV-2. Moderna’s other partner is the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Head of NIAID is Dr Anthony Fauci, the person at the center of the Trump Administration virus emergency response. Notable about the Fauci-Gates Moderna coronavirus vaccine, mRNA-1273, is that it has been rolled out in a matter of weeks, not years, and on February 24 went directly to Fauci’s NIH for tests on human guinea pigs, not on mice as normal. Moderna’s chief medical adviser, Tal Zaks, argued, “I don’t think proving this in an animal model is on the critical path to getting this to a clinical trial.”

Another notable admission by Moderna on its website is the legal disclaimer, “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements: …These risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, among others: … the fact that there has never been a commercial product utilizing mRNA technology approved for use.” In other words, completely unproven for human health and safety.

Another biotech company working with unproven mRNA technology to develop a vaccine for the COVID-19 is a German company, CureVac. Since 2015 CureVac has received money from the Gates Foundation to develop its own mRNA technology. In January the Gates-backed CEPI granted more than $8 million to develop a mRNA vaccine for the novel coronavirus.

Add to this the fact that the Gates Foundation and related entities such as CEPI constitute the largest funders of the public-private entity known as WHO, and that its current director, Tedros Adhanom, the first WHO director in history who is not a medical doctor, worked for years on HIV with the Gates Foundation when Tedros was a government minister in Ethiopia, and we see that there is practically no area of the current coronavirus pandemic where the footprints of the omnipresent Gates are not to be found. If that is to the good of mankind or grounds to be worried, time will tell.

‘Not a Sexy Drug’: Coronavirus Patients in New York Getting Vitamin C Treatments

21st Century Wire – March 25, 2020 – Patrick Henningsen

Doctors in New York state’s largest health system, Northwell Heath, are treating some of their ‘seriously sick’ coronavirus patients with an intravenous regimen of the powerful antioxidant vitamin C – something big pharmaceutical companies don’t want to hear about right now:

Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist told the New York Post:

“The patients who received vitamin C did significantly better than those who did not get vitamin C,” he said.

“It helps a tremendous amount, but it is not highlighted because it’s not a sexy drug.”

A spokesperson for Northwell Health confirmed for the Post that vitamin C treatments for coronavirus patients are “widely used” across the system.

The Shanghai, China government officially recommends vitamin C treatment for COVID-19.

Let’s stop the virus! Let’s end the hysteria!

Dr. Rath Health Institute – Mar 20, 2020 – Topic: CORVID-19 Treatment (A MUST READ!..CCFSH)

To the people and governments of the world – An Open Letter by Dr. Matthias Rath (Extensive)

The following graph summarizes the ongoing global scam of public manipulation on behalf of those known vested interests:

III. Clear answers: What you should do now

There is reason to be concerned about the current pandemic, in order to take responsible actions to contain it. But there is no reason for hysteria or to succumb to a global psychological paralysis that primarily serves the corporate interests propelling it.

There is reason to follow the safety advice of the authorities, but there is no reason to give up our fundamental human rights. To the contrary, now is the moment to defend them.

This Open Letter offers effective, safe and affordable advice to strengthen the immune resistance of everyone. But this advice goes far beyond the current pandemic. Vitamins and other essential micronutrients are effective in helping to prevent other diseases as well, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. Thus, for the people and governments of the world, the current crisis offers a unique opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rapid progress made in this field of medical science and to take a giant leap forward towards a global system of health care that focuses on the prevention and eradication of diseases.

I am hereby calling upon:

1. The people of the world

Follow the instructions of the authorities. The following recommendations are additional recommendations:

Short term:

  • Make – ideally fresh – fruits and vegetables, rich in vitamins and essential amino acids, your main nutrition throughout the day. If you can, start an organic garden at home.
  • Fight isolation, fear and paralysis by carefully reading this letter and studying the links it contains.
  • Familiarize yourself with current knowledge about the benefits of micronutrients from the world’s largest online library, Pubmed.gov. If you search for the following key words you will be surprised about the knowledge that is available today:
  • You may use online translation programs to translate the available summaries (abstracts) of these studies into your own language. Even if the texts are scientific, you will be surprised how much you can understand.
  • After browsing through this wealth of natural health information, I encourage you to switch on the TV and watch the news or read a newspaper. You will hardly hear anything about the thousands of studies on the health benefits of vitamins. This way you can experience the media’s amazing natural health ‘wall of silence’ for yourself.
  • Talk about the health benefits of vitamins in fighting infections and other diseases with everyone you know – in your family, community, church, and sports club etc.
  • Email the facts you learned from this letter and forward them to everyone you know.
  • Print out this letter out mail copies of it to people who, like you, may also be interested to learn about this important information.
  • Hardly any political decision taker – from local to national level – has this information. So send it to your mayor and the political representatives of your local community as well. Then call them by telephone and make sure they have read it. You should also ask them to forward this information to the higher levels of government.
  • Above all, help improve the immune system of yourself, your children and your loved ones by developing a ‘family health plan’ based on healthy nutrition. This way the current crisis turns into a life-changing positive experience.

Natural Health becomes a human right

Some of my readers may have followed the contents of this Open Letter with some disbelief. Can it really be that a powerful global industry has risen in the midst of our societies that is based on such unethical principles, and now – that the world community is turning their back on them – is trying to cement its grip on humanity through enabling laws and psychological warfare?

For all such readers, the following historical analogy may be helpful: In the 16th century, human progress had reached a point when mankind had advanced to usher in the Modern Times. The Medieval powers, however, insisted on maintaining their feudal privileges. In the ensuing ’30-Year War’ these Medieval powers of Europe dragged the entire continent with them into the abyss. To no avail – the advent of Modern Times could not be stopped. I already shared this historic analogy with the readers of the New York Times 17 years ago, on March 9, 2003.

Today, the merchandise of the global petrochemical as well as pharmaceutical investment business is – in the interests of the people of the world – being systematically replaced by superior and safer technologies. This pending demise of these multitrillion-dollar global investment businesses poses an existential threat to their stakeholders. In an attempt to postpone their own demise, they are apparently ready to drag all mankind with them into the abyss, ruin the existence of countless people and businesses, curtail human rights and abolish democracy.

The current pandemic is a decisive moment in human history. In the 16th century the people of Europe had no chance to avoid the destruction of their continent – because there was no precedent in history available for them to learn from. Today, the situation is different: With the events 400 years ago, we have such an historic parallel. We can act and prevent this!

With the help of information in this letter, the people and governments of the world have the opportunity – and responsibility – to protect democracy and turn this crisis into one of the greatest steps forward in human history: The starting point for a global movement with the goal to liberate human health from its century-long captivity by special interests – and deliver into the hands of the following generation a much more healthy world.

Natural health becomes a human right now!

Wishing you good health,
Dr. Matthias Rath

Did you know the Zika virus is patented? (Guess who owns it…)

Natural News – Feb 7, 2019 by: Jhoanna Robinson

The World Health Organization (WHO) dubbed the Zika virus a global health emergency on Feb. 1, 2016 without detailing much about the disease. In fact, most of the public do not know that it is patented.

Zika, which is a sexually transmitted virus, has existed for many years, and is marketed by two companies: Middlesex, United Kingdom-based cell and microbiology cultures provider LGC Standards Ltd. and Manassas, Virginia-based reference microorganisms provider American Type Culture Collection (ATCC).

Now comes the question of who owns the patent of the Zika virus.

The Zika virus is a commodity that had been purchased online from the ATCC-LGC partnership for 599 euros by The Rockefeller Foundation. (Related: Zika: A masterpiece of public mind control.)

American banker and Chase Manhattan Corp. former chairman and chief executive David Rockefeller, in an address to a Trilateral Commission Meeting in June 1991, said: “It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

In 1947, researchers from The Rockefeller Foundation placed a rhesus monkey in a cage in the middle of the Zika Forest in Uganda. The research team was investigating possible causes of yellow fever, but instead of finding more about it, they made a discovery: Rhesus 766 would ultimately become known as the first carrier of the Zika virus.

Scientists Sound Alarm Over Mysterious Gov’t Plan to Spread Viruses Using Bugs

A team of scientists sound the alarm in a new Science Policy Forum report about a mysterious US government program that is developing genetically modified viruses that would be dispersed into the environment using insects. The virus-infected or ‘Frankenstein’ insects are being developed as countermeasures against potential natural and engineered threats to the US food supply. The program is operated by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) could be viewed as an attempt to develop an entirely new class of bioweapons that would prompt other nations to seek similar weapons, they cautioned.

The researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology and the University of Freiburg both in Germany, and the University of Montpellier in France suggest DARPA’s program could likely breach the Biological Weapons Convention, the first multilateral disarmament treaty banning the development, production, and stockpiling of biological and toxin weapons.

Dubbed the “Insect Allies” program, DARPA began modifying insects in 2017, with the plan to produce more resilient crops to help farmers deal with climate change, drought, frost, floods, salinity, and disease, said Gizmodo. The technology at the center of the program is an entirely new method of genetically modifying crops. Instead of modifying seeds in a lab, farmers would send swarms of insects into their crops, where the genetically modified bugs would infect plants with a virus that passes along the new resilience genes, a process known as horizontal genetic alteration. Hence the technology’s name—Horizontal Environmental Genetic Alteration Agents (HEGAA).

For HEGAA to work, Gizmodo explains that DARPA labs develop a virus that is inserted into the chromosome of a target organism. Scientists would use leafhoppers, whiteflies, and aphids genetically altered in the lab using CRISPR, or a variant of a gene-editing system, to carry the virus into crops. Each plant would then be infected by the insect, triggering the intended effects of protecting crops from natural and or human-made threats.

However, the lead author of the report, Richard Guy Reeves from the Department of Evolutionary Genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, says DARPA’s Insect Allies program is disturbing and an example of dual-use research in which the US government, in addition to aiding farmers’ crops, is also developing a biological weapon.
