Coronavirus: A Gloomy View

Coronavirus: A Gloomy View, by Brandon Smith.

For the past couple of months the WHO, the CDC and even Donald Trump have been dismissing Covid 19 as nothing much to worry about. The WHO actually still refuses to call it a pandemic even though the virus meets all of their own criteria.

Until recently the mainstream media was also pumping out article after article on why Covid 19 is “no more dangerous than the flu”. With the official death rate at 2.3% to 3% (changing by the week), the virus already has higher mortality than the average flu [death rate 0.15%]. …

Only in the past week have the media and certain government representatives suddenly decided to take the pandemic issue seriously. Why wait until there are large community outbreaks in South Korea, Iran and Italy before instituting some travel guidelines? Why are flights still moving back and forth from these places to the US? Why is Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow telling the country that the pandemic “is contained” and there’s no threat to the economy? Why is the Surgeon General of the US telling people to ‘Stop buying N95 masks’ because they will not work for you; they only work for medical and CDC professionals? …

What will happen:

Going by the speed of the outbreaks in Italy and South Korea, it is likely that two weeks from now the American public will finally realize how bad the situation actually is. The government at this stage will demand “voluntary quarantine” of individuals who think they might have the virus.

The government, while admitting that the virus is spreading, will continue to downplay the threat to keep people as apathetic as they can. The authorities will clam that this was done “for the greater good” in order to avoid mass panic, but they don’t care about preventing “panic”, they care about control. The more desperate people are in the aftermath of a crisis the more likely they are to trade their freedoms for some semblance of security.

Within the next two months we will probably see at least a handful of government enforced quarantines. Watch for checkpoints going up on main roads and highways testing for fever and symptoms … Some people will inevitably turn to violence to get what they need. …

There will be hundreds of announcements by government officials and the media hinting that a vaccine is “right around the corner”. Don’t believe it. On average a vaccine takes 1 year to develop at minimum. That is the fastest it could be accomplished an this is under the best possible circumstances. Also, keep in mind that Covid-19 has many similarities to SARS, and the last time they tried to develop a vaccine for SARS it caused an “immunopathologic lung reaction” in test animals, meaning a negative reaction that can cause death. … The bottom line is, a vaccine can take up to ten years to produce, one year if there is a massive effort and mountains of money invested. There will be no legitimate vaccine in 2020. …

Liberty websites like mine and many others will eventually be shut down or blocked from public view by the government. They will claim that we are “spreading panic” or “fake news” and “putting the public at risk”. This is what is happening in China and it could just as easily happen here. They will assert that the ONLY authority on the pandemic is the government, and alternative sources cannot be allowed to exist. Anyone that questions the narrative that centralization is the solution will be targeted. …

Finally, a “solution” will be presented to the world by global institutions like the WHO and the IMF. As the globalists suggested in their “Event 201” pandemic exercise which simulated a coronavirus outbreak killing 65 million people and was staged TWO MONTHS before the real pandemic started, the great fix will be to form a global financial authority to manage the response. And thus we see the beginning of global governance…

Perhaps. I favor the theory that the feeble government actions were always too late simply because of incompetence and the complacency engendered by 70 years of peace and prosperity. We’ll see.
