So far, there have been a limited number of reported cases of COVID-19 infection in the US, and the US military has designated several detention sites around the country to quarantine Americans, should things take a turn for the worse.
Historically government health officials have exaggerated the threat of pandemics in the US, including the bird flu, the swine flu, anthrax and Ebola.
For example, as detailed in the 2009 NY-T’s bestseller “The Great Bird Flu Hoax,” then-President George W Bush projected 2-M Americans would die from bird flu, with the best-case scenario taking only 200,000 lives. The final death count in the US from that pandemic was Zero.
It generated massive profits, though, as US taxpayer dollars were used to purchase 20-M doses of Tamiflu. 1 of the people who line his pockets from that hoax was Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the President of Gilead Sciences (NYSE:GILD) when the drug was created.
Notably, GILD is in the forefront of the development of a vaccine for this problem.
The bird flu was a DNA, genetically engineered biological warfare weapon. It was a chimera. It had 3 different elements in it and we were all lucky that somehow they attenuated the lethality and the infectiveness of the bird flu.
Whether or not COVID-19 will be similarly ineffective in its spread and lethality remains to be seen. Judging by the statistics in China.
Understanding the COVID-19 Virus
The COVID-19 virus is a chimera too, like the avian flu virus before it. It includes SARS, an already weaponized coronavirus, along with HIV genetic material. That was in a published article by Indian scientists. You could see the pictures right there, but political pressure was brought to bear upon them so they withdrew the paper.
This is why some scientists are now looking into using HIV drugs to treat it. COVID-19 may also have a flu virus mixed in, along with gain of function properties that allow it to spread a greater distance than normal.
Pandemics have also been used to chip away public freedoms.
For example: the anthrax scare of Y 2001 was used as the driver for signing the Patriot Act, which was the 1st step in taking away many of our personal freedoms and rolling out a complete surveillance state. Such outcomes are far more concerning than the risk of infection itself.
What is called Amerithrax came out of a US government biological warfare weapons lab and program.
George Orwell’s book, “1984,” has become reality, showing the totalitarian nature of the Patriot Act.
The US government has a large stockpile of Amerithrax, a super weapons-grade nanotechnology anthrax with 1 trillion spores per gram, that is just the tip of the iceberg of the biological weapons developed.
This weekend I learned that there was a tabletop exercise at John Hopkins University last fall … on coronavirus. Tabletop exercise is a euphemism for a war game. Their estimate was that it killed 65-M people.
John Hopkins have a BSL-3 facility that they proudly announce on their website. They justify it by saying they are developing vaccines.
The Big Q: How do they do that?
The Big A: They go around the world, and this is a matter of public record, and scour for every type of hideous disease, fungus, virus and bacteria you can possibly imagine. They then bring it back to these BSL labs and develop an offensive, biological agent using DNA genetic engineering and synthetic biology set up by the Pentagon under DARPA.
Once they have an offensive agent, they then proceed to develop a vaccine, because the agent is no good unless you can have a vaccine to protect your own people.
So, they’re developing vaccines to have biological weapons, because a biological weapon consists of 2 elements: (1) the offensive biological warfare agent and (2) a vaccine to protect your own people, and that is what is being done at all these BSL-4 facilities, and many of the BSL-3s as well.
John Hopkins has a BSL-3 and they admit they do dual use. That’s what dual use means. They 1st develop the offensive biological warfare agent and then they develop the vaccine.
Johns Hopkins University is the biggest recipient of research grants from federal agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and Department of Defense.
It has also received millions of dollars in research grants from the Gates Foundation.
In Y 2016, Johns Hopkins spent more than $2-B on research projects, leading all US universities in research spending for the 38th year running.
While it is unclear exactly which treatment is the most effective, 1 expert that I read this weekend says that Dr. Paul Marik’s intravenous vitamin C protocol for sepsis would be a good starting point, seeing how sepsis appears to be what kills those who succumb to a serious COVID-19 infection.
Dr. Marik’s retrospective before-after clinical study showed that giving patients IV vitamin C with hydrocortisone and vitamin B1 for 2 days reduced mortality from 40% to 8.5%. The precise protocol used was 200 mg of thiamine every 12 hrs, 1,500 mg of ascorbic acid every 6 hrs, and 50 mg of hydrocortisone every 6 hrs. The treatment has no side effects and is inexpensive, readily available and simple to administer.
According to Dr. Marik, vitamin C and corticosteroids have a synergistic effect, which is part of why his combo protocol is so effective. Still, simply using high-dose IV vitamin C exclusively has been shown to improve survival in patients with sepsis and acute respiratory failure, reducing mortality from 46% to 30%.
It also reduced the number of days they needed to remain hospitalized. On average, those who received vitamin C had by Day 28 spent 3 fewer days in the intensive care unit than the placebo group (7 days compared to 10). By Day 60, the treatment group had also spent 7 fewer days in the hospital overall (15 days compared to 22).
While I have found no trials that look at integrating hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) it may well provide a powerful synergy that could get the fatality rate from sepsis even closer to Zero. HBOT is not available at many hospitals, and even if it were, it is not approved for sepsis.
You can review Dr. Marik’s PowerPoint presentation, “Hydrocortisone, Ascorbic Acid and Thiamine for the Treatment of Severe Sepsis and Septic Shock,” presented at the 2020 Critical Care Reviews meeting in Australia.
Have a terrific week.
