No fiction writing today.
Today, I was cruising social media when I came upon a video concerning The Pirbright Institute, the coronavirus, patents concerning the virus and the cure, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. At first, I thought it was the ramblings of a madman. “It’s just another conspiracy theorist shouting doomsday prophecies.” That was my thought process until he pulled up the patent numbers and showed them to the camera.
Intrigued by what I saw, I visited the website of the Pirbright Institute, and a link took me to the Gates Foundation. Mr. and Mrs. Gates do support PI with a grant of about 600k for a term of 20 (I’m assuming years.) While perusing the site, in the left corner of my screen a headline made me balk. Yahoo News had a headline which said Mr. and Mrs. Gates had fallen prey to conspiracy theorists.
Now, I’m really intrigued.
I don’t trust the media to deliver facts, so I will say that straight from jump street. Do I think Mr. and Mrs. Gates are devious human beings, who have concocted a virus to eradicate all life as we know it? No, but then again, what do I know? The Gates family is known to be very charitable and to give to numerous charities.
The Pirbright Institute is in Surrey. England. Their website list their major stakeholders as: OIE, WHO, the European Commission, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (www.pirbright.ac.uk, n.d.) The motto of the Pirbright Institute is, “preventing and controlling viral diseases.” They seem to focus on viruses found in animals, such as, hoof and mouth disease, black tongue, etc. The other focus is on the coronavirus. According to their website, they have started working/testing a vaccine on animals to combat the virus.
Bill Gates stepped down from being Chairman of Microsoft in March of 2020. Mr. Gates became the World Health Organization second largest donor, second only to the United States (politico.eu, 2017) According to the article, due to his contributions, he holds a large amount of sway at WHO. Thus, you can draw your own conclusions from there.
Now, you can spin this anyway you want to but I’m not saying Bill Gates is the Anti-Christ (nor am I saying he isn’t.) I just found it interesting and thought I would investigate it. I don’t believe the media could tell the truth, even if their lives depended upon it. Thus, I tend to not believe the numbers showing an increase in deaths etc. Nor do I believe in the number of cases increasing. The survival rate if infected with coronavirus is 99 %.
Um, what virus?
The flu kills over 60,000 people a year. If the coronavirus is so deadly, why aren’t we seeing an uptick in deaths worldwide? Why aren’t we seeing every hospital filled to the brim with patients? We have seen an uptick in fearmongering, we’ve also seen the media spread fear with little to no evidence to back it up.
So, is it as bad as they say or are, we being prepped for something worse? Only time will tell.
