Imagine you just arrived from another planet with no previous contact to earth. It was explained to you that an epidemic was running of such serious consequences that everything had been closed down. Flying in and around what would you expect to find? Bodies falling over and lying unattended in the streets? People looking sick everywhere and near to death? At the very least.
What would you actually find? People walking around looking very bored. Hospitals reporting that all Corona virus patients have no symptoms and they just send them home. Some are saying hospital bed occupancy has fallen to about one third of normal levels. Other than that deaths are reported by the media in the hundreds every day – but these are predominantly deaths which would have happened anyway – from cancer, heart disease or pneumonia. Curiously pneumonia patients are treated with anti-viral drugs and ventilators that kill off 66% of the patients within a week. Treating them with infra red as farmers do with pigs would save 90% but that is not done for reasons no one is sure about.
What would your attitude be when presented with all these facts? You would want to know who it was that was perpetrating this mass deception of the people, who appeared to still believe the epidemic was real, despite all the evidence, much of it, of course hidden from the people. Every evening these same poor people would emerge from their houses and clap the NHS, the same organisation that doesn’t use magnesium intravenously for heart attacks, who don’t use infra red on pneumonia patients and who hide away cancer treatments like GcMAF and B17. Occasionally toxic drips have been found in NHS hospitals but these are blamed on some poor nurse, who is then prosecuted for murder. It seems that planning and carrying out the death of selected patients is a key part of the NHS programme through schemes such as the Liverpool ‘Care’ Pathway, and via other inappropriate treatments.
Not only is the NHS failing to save 90% of the people that could be saved by the correct interventions, (they are actually withdrawing food and water from elderly patients who are slated to die by their doctors), they are starting to run the country’s government, with doctors telling the Prime Minister what he is permitted and he is not permitted to do. One third of the country’s economy is closed. Schools are closed. This cannot be healthy for the millions left with nothing to do but sit and wait in isolation and stress. In addition, Police have been given new powers to kill people in their ‘custody’ without trial and without any legal repercussions under the Coronavirus Bill. As with hospitals for Coronavirus diagnosed patients, only a cremated remains need be returned to families.
As a space traveller, you would be forced to only one conclusion. The government wants the people closed down, disempowered, depressed and as many as possible killed.
There is clearly no real threat from the virus as that would affect the government themselves and their families, but from the actions being taken in the name of the virus there is real and sinister threat. As part of the deception, members of the government and Royalty are claiming they have been positive tested for the virus. The Prime Minister is said to be in intensive care breathing through a CPAP device, which normally treats sleep apnea. Either he will be made to disappear from the scene, big drama etc, and replaced by a Minister who does exactly what he is told by the NHS, or his faked illness will be used to bamboozle the people into trusting the NHS yet more and the crisis made to carry on longer while more health destroying weaponry is deployed – things such as 5G, the microwave communication system which was tested in Wuhan and in Milan where many died as a result.
And then there’s all this other stuff still to come –
In October 2019 (only a few months before the apparition of COVID-19) the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (in cooperation with the World Economic Forum) hosted Event 201, a 3.5-hour table-top simulation of a global pandemic.
Oddly enough, this simulation was about a novel coronavirus that would kill millions. About eight weeks later, an actual novel coronavirus spurred in China. This lead to some people wondering if this exercise actually predicted the spread of COVID-19. In response to these questions, a statement was posted on the Event 201 website.
Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise
In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019.
On March 13th, about a day after COVID-19 began shutting down the entire Western world, Bill Gates stepped down from the public board of Microsoft to “dedicate more time to philanthropic priorities including global health and development, education, and climate change”. As the pandemic spread across the world, Gates became an outspoken and authoritative figure on the pandemic crisis, appearing all over mass media to share his views and recommendations.
On March 18th, Bill Gates took part in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit titled I’m Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. AMA about COVID-19. where he answered questions about the pandemic. In one of his answers, Gates referred to a “digital certificate” to keep track of who got vaccinated.
A Reddit user named RemoteControlledUser asked this question:
What changes are we going to have to make to how businesses operate to maintain our economy while providing social distancing?
Bill Gates’ answer:
The question of which businesses should keep going is tricky. Certainly food supply and the health system. We still need water, electricity and the internet. Supply chains for critical things need to be maintained. Countries are still figuring out what to keep running.
Eventually we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.
While most of Gates’ answers were received with praise, this one raised lots of eyebrows. The most upvoted reply highlights the similarities between Gates’ solution and the “Mark of the Beast” in the Bible.
This concept of a “digital certificate” to store medical information (including vaccines received) and to grant access to rights or services was not a mere suggestion. It is part of a massive project that is propelled by a powerful group called ID2020 which is backed by the United Nations, the Rockefeller Foundation and … Bill Gates’ Microsoft.
Simply put, ID2020 is looking to create a digital identification system that would store a wealth of personal information and that would go beyond the limits of national governments. The official website of ID2020 states that a global digital identity is necessary to keep track of refugees and ID-less people in developing countries. Of course, people in developed countries would be ID-ed as well. The website states:
We Need to Get Digital ID Right
Unfortunately, current models of digital ID do not meet everyone’s needs. They are generally archaic, insecure, lacking adequate privacy protection, and for over a billion people worldwide, unavailable.
Everyone should have access to a digital ID that enables them to prove who they are across institutional and international borders and across time, while giving them control over how their personal information is collected, used, and shared.
In an article published by ID2020 in 2018, vaccines are the perfect way to introduce digital identity to the world – especially infants. Appropriately titled Immunization: an entry point for digital identity, the article states:
Because immunization is conducted in infancy, providing children with a digital child health card would give them a unique, portable digital identity early in life. And as children grow, their digital child health card can be used to access secondary services, such as primary school, or ease the process of obtaining alternative credentials. Effectively the child health card becomes the first step in establishing a legal, broadly recognized identity.
In short, according to ID2020, vaccinations are the perfect opportunity to introduce a digital ID that would store the medical history of each individual. This identity would also be used to grant access to basic rights and services.
ID2020 is already testing the introduction of digital IDs in Bangladesh. On August 2019, ID2020 published a “Request for information” article stating:
A2i and its partners Gavi and ID2020 are committed to jointly researching and implementing a unique ID for infants through digitisation of vaccination processes in Bangladesh.
The program will provide infants and children with a portable, biometrically-linked digital ID either at the point of birth registration or at the time of their immunizations, simultaneously supporting three shared objectives:
Driving improvements in CRVS (Demographic and Social Statistics) coverage and process
Supporting improvements in vaccination process and equity
Ultimately, supporting access to rights and services throughout one’s life-course.
In this Bangladesh experiment, digital ID is “biometrically-linked”, meaning that it is based on the fingerprints of individuals. The article describes the process in place:
Information is required regarding biometric scanners capable of capturing the fingerprint biometrics of parents during phase 1 with the ambition to also effectively capture infant biometrics in phase 2. Scanners can be cabled or Bluetooth. Scanners must be a minimum of FBI certified FAP30, portable, robust and capturing a minimum of 500 pixels per inch. Please state the port type on the scanner(s), for example, micro USB, USB C, or other.
While this project is linked to biometrics, Bill Gates has been funding research on a different form of vaccine identification: The quantum dot tattoo.
Quantum Dot Tattoo
In December 2019, a group of researchers at the MIT published a study in Science Translational Medicine about the use of quantum dot tattoos to identify who people who received a vaccine.
An article in Futurism titled An Invisible Quantum Dot ‘Tattoo’ Could Be Used to ID Vaccinated Kids reviewed this study:
For the people overseeing nationwide vaccination initiatives in developing countries, keeping track of who had which vaccination and when can be a tough task.
But researchers from MIT might have a solution: they’ve created an ink that can be safely embedded in the skin alongside the vaccine itself, and it’s only visible using a special smartphone camera app and filter.
In other words, they’ve found a covert way to embed the record of a vaccination directly in a patient’s skin rather than documenting it electronically or on paper – and their low-risk tracking system could greatly simplify the process of maintaining accurate vaccine records, especially on a larger scale.
The invisible “tattoo” accompanying the vaccine is a pattern made up of minuscule quantum dots – tiny semiconducting crystals that reflect light – that glows under infrared light. The pattern – and vaccine – gets delivered into the skin using hi-tech dissolvable microneedles made of a mixture of polymers and sugar.
“It’s possible someday that this ‘invisible’ approach could create new possibilities for data storage, biosensing, and vaccine applications that could improve how medical care is provided, particularly in the developing world,” MIT professor and senior author Robert Langer said in the statement.
The article states that this study was the result of a direct request from Bill Gates.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded the team’s research, which was published in the journal Science Translational Medicine on Wednesday.
According to a Scientific American story, the project came about following a direct request from Microsoft founder Bill Gates himself, who has been personally involved in efforts to eradicate polio and measles through vaccinations.
While answering a question about conducting business in the era of social distancing, Bill Gates replied that “digital certificates” will be used to determine who had COVID-19, who recovered from it, who was recently tested for it and who received the vaccine. This short (and unexpected answer) opened a gigantic pandora box of what could be in store in the near future: The inevitable mass vaccination campaign to eradicate COVID-19 would be the perfect opportunity to introduce a worldwide digital ID. This system would store a wealth of information about each individual (including vaccination history) and would be used to grant access to rights and services. Although Gates did not go into specifics, “digital certificates” could be linked to biometrics or a quantum dot tattoo.
PM in intensive care, Raab steps in
|Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, was moved to an intensive care unit (ICU) in St Thomas’ Hospital last night after his symptoms worsened. As of the latest update, he remained conscious and had not been put on a ventilator, however, he was moved to the ICU so that he could be close to one in case, as is not uncommon, he deteriorated rapidly. |
Not all ICU patients are placed on ventilators and there are other treatments, such as CPAPs, which use pressurised air to help a patient breathe. Being sent to an ICU is not a good sign, but doctors are likely being extra cautious in choosing to send Johnson to one.
With no cure for Covid-19, ICU care focuses on helping patients breathe while their own body fights off the disease. Paul Nuki, our Global Health Security Editor, explains what kind of treatment the PM might expect.
– Raab steps up –
While everyone’s thoughts are clearly with Johnson and his family, there is also the important question of continuity of government if he is incapacitated.
Johnson spoke to Dominic Raab, the Foreign Secretary and de facto deputy PM, and asked him to deputise “where necessary”. The UK does not have a constitutionally clear system of succession and while there has not been a deputy PM since Nick Clegg, that position was a relatively new invention.
At the start of this government, there was some confusion as to whether Raab, as First Secretary of State, or Michael Gove, who was acting as deputy in all but name, was Johnson’s official stand-in. Downing Street later confirmed it was Raab and that was re-confirmed once Johnson tested positive for the coronavirus.
Still, it may not all be that simple. As Harry Yorke reports, Raab may not actually take over all of the PM’s responsibilities if Johnson is incapacitated, which could instead be reserved to Cabinet members whose department is directly involved.
– Borrowed authority –
The other question, of course, is whether the Cabinet, which is already divided on key issues around the epidemic, will follow Raab’s direction for long. There have been suggestions that as the head of a department that has relatively little involvement in the fight against the virus, the Foreign Secretary is in a poor position to lead.
However, it could, in fact, be the exact opposite. That because, for example, he does not have direct involvement in the dispute over whether to prioritise the NHS or the economy, his voice may carry more authority.
That being said, Raab will still need Cabinet consent for key decisions. And, the Cabinet could, if acting together, choose to replace Raab, assuming the PM was not in a position to object, reckons Oliver Wright at The Times.
All of that thinking grows more complicated if Johnson is incapacitated for anything more than a few days or a couple of weeks. As Lord Kerslake, the former head of the Civil Service, points out to The Guardian, there would be no immediate need to test Raab’s authority, but if Johnson were to have a prolonged recovery then the Cabinet might have to consider a more formal process.
That, however, is not a question for right now.
