Bill Gates Releases Flu Pandemic Death Simulation
Experts are concerned that if a 1918 flu pandemic were to happen in today’s modern world, it might kill more than 30 million people. Our modern world is, you know, ripe with airline travel, car travel, train travel, and any other travel that tends to get us from point A to point Z in short order. The concept being that a flu virus would spread a great many times faster today than it did in 1918.
“In the case of biological threats, that sense of urgency is lacking,” he said. “The world needs to prepare for pandemics in the same serious way it prepares for war.”
Prepare for pandemics in the same way we prepare for war? That’s what Gates says. The weapon of choice, conveniently, is a new universal flu vaccine that Gates is backing. Gates and Trump, supposedly, have even sat down in the White House and discussed the science behind a universal flu vaccine.
Gates says that new pathogens are forming as a result of increasing population numbers. More and more people are living in regions where people were previously not inhabitants, leading to deepening exposures to unique pathogens.
Gates also has mentioned the potential for weaponized or engineered viruses that would be used as warfare. Supposedly, our new friends over in North Korea have the ability to create smallpox viruses on the fly. If a virus were to be created by scratch, we’d be rendered incapacitated in terms of treatment options.
To prove his point, Gates has released a pandemic flu simulator which shows exactly how fast you and your neighbors are going to die when the next big flu sweeps the globe. Created by the Institute for Disease Modeling, a short viewing of the video will show you just have fast you are going to die unless you immediately get a universal flu shot.
Of course, I’m not sure I’d lose any sleep over Bill Gates. While one should always prepare for potential pandemics, it is important to realize that past flu shots have been failures and the fact that Gates has long pushed for vaccines makes his “awareness raising” suspect. Gates has an agenda with vaccines. Whether or not you agree with his agenda or not, it remains an agenda.
In other words, I wouldn’t not go to Starbucks this morning due to being afraid following the viewing of your certain death.
Always have your pandemic supplies on hand, but don’t live in a state of fear. Fear mongering is the essence of marketing these days. Fear moves merchandise and product.
