During the start of Lunar New Year celebrations, a mystery virus is spreading and infecting throughout China.
As for official statistics, 54 people in the mainland have died and over 1,700 people (as of writing) have been sickened. Although unverified video claims up to 90,000 have already been infected by the coronavirus.
A laboratory in Wuhan, China was cleared to work with the most dangerous pathogens in the world in 2017. Once the outbreak of the coronavirus went public, it was reported that the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market (just 8 miles from the lab) was the culprit of the virus, where wild (and often illegal) animals are sold. However, no link with the market and Patient Zero were found.
The market likely had some hand in transmitting the virus, given its unsanitary conditions and high volume of human traffic, but the coincidence of the Wuhan lab’s location becomes even more disconcerting when viewed in light of the currently “unrelated” events.
In what has to be bizarre coincidence, in just November of last year, the Gates Foundation held a simulation called “Event 201”. Event 201 simulated an outbreak of a “zoonotic “coronavirus”. “Zoonatic” would be the spread of disease through animals (vertebrates).
Let’s study how the scenario concluded:
The scenario ends at the 18-month point, with 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. From that point on, it is likely to be an endemic childhood disease.
Other interesting tidbits from the simulation:
- “Although at first some countries are able to control it, it continues to spread and be reintroduced, and eventually no country can maintain control“.
- “There is no possibility of a 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“.
With hospitals being stretched thin with overworked staff, medical supplies close to running out, and numerous patients seeking treatment – it’s vital to keep pulse on the situation. Only time will be indicative if the situation abates in severity or worsens.
