Disease X and the Zombie "Viruses"
Ready and waiting to take the world stage by storm.
Are you getting bored of listening to the exact same song and dance numbers over and over again? Are the old “viral” bands just not doing it for you anymore? Are you looking for something new and mysterious to come along in order to spice things up a bit and reignite the dwindling levels of fear? If so, then you are in luck as there is a brand new “viral” sensation headed your way!
Introducing Disease X!
Disease X: A hidden but inevitable creeping danger
“An old adage says, “Prevention is better than cure.” Nothing exemplifies this idea better than “Disease X.” According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.”1
Richard Hatchett, chief executive officer (CEO) of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), said about Disease X, “It might sound like science fiction, but Disease X is something we must prepare for.”2 In a list of diseases that the WHO considers high priority in terms of research and development, Disease X occupies a spot among diseases such as Ebola, Zika, and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).1 Unexpected outbreaks of infectious disease (Disease X) have repeatedly rocked the medical confidence and have taken the medical world by surprise.3
Some experts have even commented that COVID-19, caused by severe acute respiratory coronavirus virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), met the standards to be considered the first Disease X,4 while some authors have called Zika a Disease X.5 However, one unfortunate possibility is that COVID-19 and other recent pandemics might have been milder versions of what will eventually be the most prominent Disease X.
Disease X is supposed to be caused by a “pathogen X.” Such a pathogen is expected to be a zoonosis, most likely an RNA virus, emerging from an area where the right mix of risk factors highly promotes the risk for sustained transmission.6
As can be seen, no one currently knows what Disease X truly is, and even though it is admitted that the emergence of Disease X sounds like science fiction, we must prepare for the arrival of this superstar on the world stage. When that will be, no one quite yet knows for sure. But rest assured, this disease, attributed to the unknown Pathogen X, will be the next big thing, and you better be prepared for this upcoming surefire rock legend that is primed to take the world by storm.
“Experts” are already calling for 50 million fans to succumb to the hard-hitting monster jams and powerful ballads of this enigmatic virtuoso. Not since the times of the breakout stardom of the Spanish Flu will the world have seen such a furious fan frenzy. In order to prepare for the eventual hysteria over the arrival of Disease X, plans are in place for mass vaccination drives so that fans are primed for the amazing tunes coming their way.
Disease X Could Bring Next Pandemic, Kill 50 Million People, Says Expert
Kate Bingham further said that scientists have identified 25 virus families, but there could be more than one million undiscovered variants.
A UK health expert has said that Disease X, the name given by World Health Organisation (WHO), can cause another pandemic deadlier than Covid-19. In an interview to Daily Mail, Kate Bingham, who served as the chair of the UK's Vaccine Taskforce from May to December 2020, said the new virus could have a similar impact to the devastating Spanish Flu of 1919-1920. According to WHO, Disease X could be a new agent - a virus, a bacterium or fungus - without any known treatments.
Expressing her concern, Ms Bingham said, "Let me put it this way: the 1918-19 flu pandemic killed at least 50 million people worldwide, twice as many as were killed in World War I. Today, we could expect a similar death toll from one of the many viruses that already exist."
If the world has to tackle the threat from Disease X, "the world will have to prepare for mass vaccination drives and deliver the doses in record time", she told the Daily Mail.
Whatever you do, don't go trying to track down Disease X for an autograph or solo performance just yet as there are more than one million “variants” from 25 different “viral” families that this exciting rockstar could be from. However, take comfort in the fact that Disease X is on the way, hiding somewhere in the world, replicating until ready to debut the signature symptoms that will set it apart from the rest of the crowd.
The expert further said that scientists have identified 25 virus families, but there could be more than one million undiscovered variants, which may be able to jump from one species to another.
"In a sense, we got lucky with Covid-19, despite the fact that it caused 20 million or more deaths across the world. The point is that the vast majority of people infected with the virus managed to recover... Imagine Disease X is as infectious as measles with the fatality rate of Ebola. Somewhere in the world, it's replicating, and sooner or later, somebody will start feeling sick," said Ms Bingham.
Ebola had a fatality rate of around 67 per cent, and she added that others like bird flu and MERS also killed a large number of people. "So we certainly can't bank on the next pandemic being easily contained."
For those who just can't wait until Disease X finally graces us with its presence, let's take a journey back in time and see if we can learn just a little bit more about the future legend-in-the-making. Let's see if we can uncover the history of Disease X and try to read the tea leaves in order to find out when, where, and how this worldwide phenom will make its debut. Let's look at the reasons for why Disease X is said to be coming to rescue us all from the doldrum tunes of yesterday. We will see if this really is a new star rising, or whether Disease X has already made an appearance before, making it nothing more than a cleverly disguised comeback tour that will be repeated ad nauseam.
According to a February 2018 article from CNN, the WHO announced the presence of Disease X in its 2018 global plan to accelerate research and development during health emergencies. It looked to “Ebola,” “Zika,” and “SARS1” as the types of threats that needed to be prepared for, conveniently doing so two years before the emergence of the “threat” of “SARS-COV-2.” The WHO defined Disease X as “the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease.” America's “most trusted scientist” Anthony Fauci stated that, based upon past experiences, the thing that will hit us is something that is unanticipated. Thus, the goal for Disease X is to anticipate the unanticipated. In order to do so, the WHO needed to move “nimbly” and create the necessary platform technologies. This involved scientists developing customizable recipes for creating vaccines. Thus, when an unanticipated outbreak occurs, the new “virus” can be sequenced and then plugged into the already-developed platform in order to create a new vaccine. Utilizing a similar approach in 2016, the WHO was able to create an “Ebola” vaccine in 12 months rather than the 5-10 years it would normally take:
World Health Organization gets ready for ‘Disease X’
“The World Health Organization included “Disease X” in its most recent global plan for accelerating research and development during health emergencies like the Ebola, SARS or Zika epidemics.
The strategy and preparedness plan, known as the 2018 R&D Blueprint, was published last month. So what, exactly, is Disease X?
This enigmatic name “represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease,” according to the WHO.
“As experience has taught us more often than not the thing that is gonna hit us is something that we did not anticipate,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “Just the way we didn’t anticipate Zika, we didn’t think there would be an Ebola that would hit cities.”
“X” stands for unexpected, he said.
When confronted with the unknown, the WHO recognizes that it must “nimbly move” and that this involves creating platform technologies, explained Fauci.
Essentially, scientists develop customizable recipes for creating vaccines. Then, when an outbreak happens, they can sequence the unique genetics of the virus causing the disease and plug the correct sequence into the already-developed platform to create a new vaccine.”
“WHO’s work alongside governments, scientists and private entities “resulted in the first ever fully effective vaccine against Ebola, developed and tested in 12 months as opposed to the 5-10 years such a process would normally take,” said Kieny, who welcomed the opportunity to use her Ebola experience to prepare for future health emergencies.”
While the CNN article stated that the WHO introduced us to Disease X in 2018, it actually made its first appearance the year before. In the January 2017 “List of Blueprint Priority Diseases,” the WHO developed a tool to identify pathogens to prioritize for research and development in public health emergency contexts. They attempted to identify diseases that posed a public health risk due to their “epidemic potential” and lack of effective countermeasures. Disease X was the last entry in the list of priority diseases. However, at that time, Disease X was not really defined and served as a placeholder for any disease identified prior to the next review using the Blueprint’s decision instrument.
List of Blueprint priority diseases
For the purposes of the R&D; Blueprint, WHO has developed a special tool for determining which diseases and pathogens to prioritize for research and development in public health emergency contexts. This tool attempts to identify those diseases that pose a public health risk because of their epidemic potential and for which there are no, or insufficient, countermeasures. The diseases selected through this process are the focus of the work of R& D Blueprint. This is not an exhaustive list, nor does it indicate the most likely causes of the next epidemic. It should be noted that diseases such as influenza, yellow-fever, cholera etc., which present significant health risks, are absent from this list because medical countermeasures are available for them or they are already the focus of dedicated R&D; activities.
The initial list of prioritized diseases was established in December 2015.
The list is reviewed and revised on an annual basis in order to insure a dynamic process. The most recent review was in January 2017.
Revised list of priority diseases, January 2017
Arenaviral hemorrhagic fevers (including Lassa Fever)
Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever (CCHF)
Filoviral diseases (including Ebola and Marburg)
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV)
Other highly pathogenic coronaviral diseases (such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, (SARS))
Nipah and related henipaviral diseases
Rift Valley Fever (RVF)
Severe Fever with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (SFTS)
Disease X *
*Any disease identified prior to the next review using the Blueprint’s decision instrument will be included in the list.
NB: the Chikungunya virus was discussed during the meeting and a number of experts stressed the risks it poses. Along with a number of other pathogens, there was agreement that Chikungunya Virus continues to warrant further research and development.
Disease X made its official debut as “the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease” in February of 2018. The goal was to prepare for an unknown “Disease X” as much as possible. As in 2017, other known “diseases” made up a list of those that were considered to be major public health risks that required further research and development, including surveillance and diagnostics. Both “MERS” and “SARS1” were included in the 2018 list as diseases that required more R & D, while other “conronaviral” diseases were discussed as being potentials to add to the list. It was very “fortunate” that the WHO implemented this program at that time given that a “novel coronavirus” just so happened to emerge less than two years later to take advantage of the sped up R & D, vaccine development, and surveillance and diagnostic programs that were put into place.
In fact, the “Covid” vaccine had an Oxford team already working on the creation of the vaccine starting January 10th, 2020 and a vaccine was fully completed by early February 2020 even though the sequence for “SARS-COV-2” wasn't even available until midnight on the 10th of January 2020. “Plug and create” indeed.
The concept of a “One Health” approach involving animal diseases was included for preventIon and control as well as minimising spill-over and enhancing food security. The WHO also left open the possibility of utilizing animal vaccines in order to prevent future outbreaks. Thus, we can see that they were pushing a zoonosis theme, i.e. a “virus” spreading from animals to humans, from the very beginning. The role of anti-microbial resistance resulting in the emergence of a resistant pathogen was also discussed:
2018 annual review of the Blueprint list of priority diseases
“The second annual review occurred 6-7 February, 2018. Experts consider that given their potential to cause a public health emergency and the absence of efficacious drugs and/or vaccines, there is an urgent need for accelerated research and development for*:
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF)
Ebola virus disease and Marburg virus disease
Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)
Nipah and henipaviral diseases
Rift Valley fever (RVF)
Disease X represents the knowledge that a serious international epidemic could be caused by a pathogen currently unknown to cause human disease, and so the R&D; Blueprint explicitly seeks to enable cross-cutting R&D; preparedness that is also relevant for an unknown “Disease X” as far as possible.
A number of additional diseases were discussed and considered for inclusion in the priority list, including: Arenaviral hemorrhagic fevers other than Lassa Fever; Chikungunya; highly pathogenic coronaviral diseases other than MERS and SARS; emergent non-polio enteroviruses (including EV71, D68); and Severe Fever with Thrombocytopenia Syndrome (SFTS).
These diseases pose major public health risks and further research and development is needed, including surveillance and diagnostics. They should be watched carefully and considered again at the next annual review. Efforts in the interim to understand and mitigate them are encouraged.”
“The value of a One Health approach was stressed, including a parallel prioritization processes for animal health. Such an effort would support research and development to prevent and control animal diseases minimising spill-over and enhancing food security. The possible utility of animal vaccines for preventing public health emergencies was also noted.
Also there are concerted efforts to address anti-microbial resistance through specific international initiatives. The possibility was not excluded that, in the future, a resistant pathogen might emerge and appropriately be prioritized.”
While Disease X is a relatively new concept used to hype up an unknown upcoming future threat, according to the “experts,” we have already witnessed our first example of this phenomenon with “Covid-19.” According to a February 2020 Bloomberg article, the “novel coronavirus” was considered a contender for the title of Disease X. Marion Koopsman, a member of the WHOs emergency committee, stated that “this outbreak is rapidly becoming the first true pandemic challenge that fits the disease X category:”
Coronavirus May Be the ‘Disease X’ Health Agency Warned About
“The World Health Organization cautioned years ago that a mysterious “disease X” could spark an international contagion. The new coronavirus, with its ability to quickly morph from mild to deadly, is emerging as a contender.
From recent reports about the stealthy ways the so-called Covid-19 virus spreads and maims, a picture is emerging of an enigmatic pathogen whose effects are mainly mild, but which occasionally -- and unpredictably -- turns deadly in the second week. In less than three months, it’s infected about 77,000 people, mostly in China, and killed more than 2,200.
“Whether it will be contained or not, this outbreak is rapidly becoming the first true pandemic challenge that fits the disease X category,” Marion Koopmans, head of viroscience at Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, and a member of the WHO’s emergency committee, wrote Wednesday in the journal Cell.”
In a February 2020 article for The New York Times, Peter Daszak, a disease ecologist and the president of EcoHealth Alliance in New York who helped coin the Disease X term, stated that they were referring to “the next pandemic, which would be caused by an unknown, novel pathogen that hadn’t yet entered the human population.” They felt that the “virus” would originate in animals and “emerge somewhere on the planet where economic development drives people and wildlife together.” Interestingly, it was believed that Disease X would be confused with other diseases early on in the outbreak (cough…influenza…cough). It would have a higher mortality rate than the seasonal flu but would spread as easily as the flu. Thus, according to Daszak, “Covid-19” fit the definition for Disease X. Fortunately, these soothsayers were able to predict that such a pandemic as “Covid” would occur as they felt that the next big one was likely to be a different “pathogen,” i.e. a “virus” close to “SARS” but not close enough that the same vaccine would work against both. They had the infrastructure in place to handle their pandemic premonition due to The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), a group founded by the Gates Foundation and composed of public, private, philanthropic and civil society organizations, which funded vaccines and therapeutics for the pathogens that they “predicted:”
“In early 2018, during a meeting at the World Health Organization in Geneva, a group of experts I belong to (the R&D Blueprint) coined the term “Disease X”: We were referring to the next pandemic, which would be caused by an unknown, novel pathogen that hadn’t yet entered the human population. As the world stands today on the edge of the pandemic precipice, it’s worth taking a moment to consider whether Covid-19 is the disease our group was warning about.
Disease X, we said back then, would likely result from a virus originating in animals and would emerge somewhere on the planet where economic development drives people and wildlife together. Disease X would probably be confused with other diseases early in the outbreak and would spread quickly and silently; exploiting networks of human travel and trade, it would reach multiple countries and thwart containment. Disease X would have a mortality rate higher than a seasonal flu but would spread as easily as the flu. It would shake financial markets even before it achieved pandemic status.
In a nutshell, Covid-19 is Disease X.”
“During its World Health Assembly in 2016, the W.H.O. set up the R&D Blueprint to bridge this gap and announced a priority list of pathogens that most threaten global health and for which no vaccines or drugs were in the pipeline. SARS made the list, as did MERS, Nipah, Ebola and other rare but serious diseases caused by epidemic viruses. The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations — a global partnership between public, private, philanthropic and civil society organizations launched at Davos in 2017 — stepped up to the plate and sourced funding to develop vaccines and therapeutics against some of these.
To escape from the Age of Pandemics, we’ll need to treat them as a public health issue and start working on prevention in addition to responses. Our first goal should be to broaden our armory against potential mass epidemics. When some of us added “Disease X” to the W.H.O.’s priority list two years ago, we wanted to make the point that it’s not sufficient to develop vaccines and drugs for known agents when the next big one is likely to be a different pathogen — a virus close to SARS, say, but not close enough that the same vaccine can work against both.”
In a final February 2020 article, Shibo Jiang, of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, stated that the Wuhan pneumonia should be classified as the first Disease X. The Chinese researchers felt that it fit the definition as they had believed that the first Disease X would be a transmissible “infectious” disease caused by a “novel coronavirus” originating from bats. Thus, prior to "Covid,” they accelerated efforts to develop “viral” fusion inhibitors and neutralizing antibodies with broad-spectrum inhibitory activity against divergent human “coronaviruses” and “SARSr-CoVs:”
The First Disease X is Caused by a Highly Transmissible Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus
“Based on the announcement of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2018, the Wuhan pneumonia caused by an unknown etiology should be recognized as the first Disease X.”
“On February 9, 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced the Blueprint list of priority diseases, including Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), as well as Disease X, for research and development in emergency contexts. Disease X would be a new disease with an epidemic or pandemic potential caused by an unknown pathogen (www.who.int/activities/prioritizing-diseases-for-research-and-development-in-emergency-context). At that time, we believed that the first Disease X could be a transmissible infectious disease caused by a novel coronavirus originated from bats. This supposition was based on a live SARS-related coronavirus (SARSr-CoV), designated SARSr-CoV-WIV1, isolated from bat fecal samples in Vero E6 cells. It had 99.9% whole genome sequence identity to that of SARSr-CoV-Rs3367 identified from Chinese horseshoe bats and another novel strain, SARSr-CoV-RsSHC014, both of which could utilize human, civet and Chinese horseshoe bat angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2) as the host cell receptor for infecting human, civet and Chinese horseshoe bat target cells (Ge et al. 2013; Cui et al. 2019). This evidence prompted us to accelerate our efforts to develop viral fusion inhibitors and neutralizing antibodies with broad-spectrum inhibitory activity against divergent human coronaviruses and SARSr-CoVs (Zeng et al.2017; Xia et al. 2019).”
By all accounts, it appears that we have already had the pleasure of meeting Disease X over the last three years with “Covid-19.” We were “fortunate” that, in the two years leading up to the “pandemic,” researchers had “predicted” the emergence of a “novel coronavirus” and had found a way to create a vaccine for a “viral family” that had remained without one for 40 years. The fact that they did so in record timing with the plug-and-play approach based upon genetic sequences is just icing on the proverbial “plandemic” cake. This “preparation” for Disease X allowed for quick sequencing of the “SARS-COV-2 virus” from unpurified BALF fluids of one patient which was then able to be plugged into a vaccine and used to create PCR testing within the first few days of its “discovery.” Everything went exactly as planned in advance as was set in place in 2018. Go figure.
As it seems that we have already uncovered the identity of Disease X with “Covid-19,” why are there so many fear-based articles swirling around claiming that it is still on the way? For example, a May 2023 article in The Economic Times warned that a WHO report stated that Disease X is coming, and that it may be 20 times deadlier than “Covid.” The WHO have no idea what Disease X is, claiming that it could be either another “virus,” a bacterium, a fungus, or something else entirely. We are warned that this isn't science fiction, an odd statement to make if “Covid” is considered the first example of Disease X. It is believed that the future Disease X may come from animals or possibly come as a man-made “virus” released either accidentally or as a “bioweapon.” Ironically, the WHO relies on science fiction in order to convince us that Disease X is not science fiction:
What is ‘Disease X’? WHO health experts say it can be deadlier than Covid-19
“The world is barely recovering from the onslaught of the Covid 19 pandemic when health experts dropped a new bomb.
Think Covid 19 was the worst health scare humanity had seen? Think again.
According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, a new, more insidious, and far more deadly disease may turn the world upside down. The scientists at UN’s health agency have termed it as ‘Disease X’.
What Is Disease X?
Aside from the fact that it will wreak havoc on humanity, the research team has no idea about the nature of the pathogen. In an interview with The Telegraph, the team told that they have no idea if it would be a virus, a bacterium, a fungus or something else altogether. Since the medical researchers are in the dark as to what the new health menace will be like, there may be a lack of any treatments or vaccines. “This isn’t the stuff of science fiction,” Dr. Richard Hatchett, of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, told the Telegraph. “This is a scenario we have to prepare for. This is Disease X.”
“Some public health experts have speculated that Disease X might be zoonotic - meaning it will spread from wild animals to humans. Ebola, Covid-19 were all zoonotic diseases. However, some researchers are not discounting the possibility of it being a human made virus - aka a tool of bioterrorism. ““The release of such pathogens, either through laboratory accidents or as an act of bioterrorism, might lead to a disastrous Disease X as well and has been remarked as a global catastrophic risk,” warned a 2021 study which was published in the journal Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology.”
In a late September 2023 Bloomberg article, we are told that Disease X was coined specifically for unknown “infectious” threats such as “novel coronaviruses.” This led to the development of vaccines, drug therapies and diagnostic tests that could be rapidly adapted and deployed in response to these “unknown threats.” It is reiterated that “Covid” was an example of Disease X, and that an animal reservoir is the most likely source for the next Disease X. The WHO is “studying” Disease X in order to “enable early cross-cutting R&D preparedness that is also relevant” for an unknown disease. Due to the work that was done in 2017, it took just 326 days from the release of the genetic sequence of “SARS-COV-2” until the authorization of the first “Covid” vaccine. Due to the success of Disease X, CEPI is further supporting rapid response vaccine platforms that could now develop new immunizations within 100 days of the emergence of a “virus” with “pandemic potential.” Along with sped up timelines, a new global agreement to protect against future “pandemics” is being sought, as well as a global fund by the World Bank, a WHO Hub utilized for predicting “pandemics,” a global “virome” project to “discover” new “viral threats,” and a global center for “pandemic” therapeutics. It appears that responding to the “not science fiction” known as Disease X has been very good for bringing about globalization:
What Is Disease X? How Scientists Are Preparing for the Next Pandemic
It sounds like something Elon Musk might have cooked up: “Disease X.” In fact, the term was coined years ago as a way of getting scientists to work on medical countermeasures for unknown infectious threats — novel coronaviruses like the one that causes Covid-19, for example — instead of just known ones, like the Ebola virus. The idea was to encourage the development of platform technologies, including vaccines, drug therapies and diagnostic tests, that could be rapidly adapted and deployed in response to an array of future outbreaks with epidemic or pandemic potential.
1. What is ‘Disease X?’
It’s the somewhat mysterious name for an illness caused by a presently unknown, yet serious microbial threat. The World Health Organization added Disease X in 2017 to a short list of pathogens deemed a top priority for research, alongside known killers like Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Ebola. Covid-19, caused by a novel coronavirus, was an example of a Disease X when it touched off the pandemic at the end of 2019. The vast reservoir of viruses circulating in wildlife are seen as a likely source of more such diseases. That’s because of their potential to spill over and infect other species, including humans, giving rise to an infection against which people will have no immunity.
2. What’s the point of studying Disease X?
As the WHO puts it, it’s to “enable early cross-cutting R&D preparedness that is also relevant” for an unknown disease. The humanitarian crisis sparked by the 2014–2016 Ebola epidemic in West Africa was a wake up call. Despite decades of research, there were no products ready to deploy in time to save more than 11,000 lives. In response, the WHO created an R&D Blueprint to accelerate development of a range of tools for “priority diseases.”
3. How’s the research for the next pandemic going?
It took just 326 days from the release of the genetic sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to the authorization of the first Covid vaccine, thanks in part to the work done since 2017 in preparation for Disease X. Now groups like the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, or CEPI, are supporting rapid response vaccine platforms that could develop new immunizations within 100 days of a virus with pandemic potential emerging under a $3.5 billion plan. Other efforts underway include:
A new fund, approved by the World Bank, for pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.
The Global Virome Project that aims to discover zoonotic viral threats and stop future pandemics.
A $5 billion US government initiative to develop next-generation vaccines and treatments for Covid-19, called Project NextGen.
$262.5 million in funding for a US national network for detecting and responding more efficiently to public health emergencies.
Establishment of global center for pandemic therapeutics.
Disease X is exactly what they warned us that it wasn't, i.e. science fiction, as there literally is no known threat present. The WHO can hype up this looming future threat and test scenarios with their fear-addicted focus groups until they decide to declare that a threat fitting their description has been identified at a time that is convenient to push along their overall agenda. As usual, the WHO and other “health” organizations are preparing for and fighting an invisible enemy while putting into place initiatives that bring us closer to a “One Health,” a.k.a. “One World,” response in lockstep with the agenda of establishing a one world governing body. As Disease X is a fictitious threat, they can use various fictional scenarios, such as a “pathogen” coming from zoonosis and the “viral” spillover or from the creation of a “viral” bioweapon, in order to try and trick the public into accepting further control-grabbing measures.
In keeping with the theme of science fiction, my favorite Disease X scenario combines two fictional crises into one in the form of Zombie “viruses.” According to an October 2023 Bloomberg article, we are facing the threat of newly emerging “Zombie viruses” due to the manufactured climate change “crisis.” In the article, we are introduced to virologist Jean-Michel Claverie whose work is shedding light on the “threat” posed by global warming thawing out grounds that have been frozen for millenniums. Last year, Claverie published research claiming to extract ancient “viruses” from the Siberian permafrost that remained “infectious.” Due to the melting permafrost, there is now said to be danger coming from the north as microbes, bacteria and “viruses” are freed from their icy slumber and reawakened. According to WHO spokesperson Dr. Margaret Harris, the WHO is working with 300+ scientists to determine the next Disease X, and this includes looking at “those that may be released with the thawing of permafrost.”
Fortunately, Claverie is well-versed in science fiction as he comes from a background of theoretical particle physics and applied computer science, although he has no formal training in the pseudoscience of immunology. However, he felt that his experience in his current (pseudo)scientific fields gave him an advantage when investigating other (pseudo)scientific fields, i.e. virology and immunology. After reading about a reanimated flowering plant, Claverie thought that if something as complex as a flowering plant could be revived, he could expect to revive “viruses” from permafrost as well. He felt that his first efforts into “reviving” the not-alive-to-begin-with “viruses” in 2014 were not taken seriously. Thus, in 2019, Claverie “isolated” 13 “viruses” from 7 samples of Siberian permafrost. One of the “viruses” was said to have been frozen more than 48,500 years ago. Summoning the great science fiction novelist within him, Claverie concluded: “If Neanderthals died of an unknown viral disease and this virus resurfaces, it could be a danger to us.” This ominous warning has led to the fear that the very search for these Zombie “viruses” may ultimately awaken and bring about a zombie “virus” outbreak that could fit the very Disease X scenario we are trying to avoid:
Zombie Viruses Are Waking Up After 50,000 Years as Planet Warms
A fortnight camping on the mosquito-ridden, muddy banks of the Kolyma River in Russia may not sound like the most glamorous of work trips. But it’s a sacrifice virologist Jean-Michel Claverie was willing to make to uncover the truth about zombie viruses — yet another risk that climate change poses to public health.
His discoveries shine a light on a grim reality of global warming as it thaws ground that had been frozen for millenniums. Claverie, 73, has spent over a decade studying “giant” viruses, including ones nearly 50,000 years old found deep within layers of Siberian permafrost.
With the planet already 1.2C warmer than pre-industrial times, scientists are predicting the Arctic could be ice-free in summers by 2030s. Concerns that the hotter climate will release trapped greenhouse gases like methane into the atmosphere as the region’s permafrost melts have been well-documented, but dormant pathogens are a lesser explored danger. Last year, Claverie’s team published research showing they’d extracted multiple ancient viruses from the Siberian permafrost, all of which remained infectious.
“With climate change, we are used to thinking of dangers coming from the south,” Claverie said in an interview at his laboratory in the Luminy campus of Aix-Marseille University, France, referring to the spread of vector borne diseases from warmer tropical regions. “Now, we realize there might be some danger coming from the north as the permafrost thaws and frees microbes, bacteria and viruses.”
“For years, global health agencies and governments have been monitoring for unknown infectious diseases against which humans would neither have immunity nor drug therapies. The World Health Organization in 2017 added a generic “Disease X” to a shortlist of pathogens deemed a top priority for research and for which it aims to develop a roadmap to prevent or contain an epidemic. Since the Covid-19 pandemic shuttered the world for months, efforts have only intensified.
“WHO works with 300+ scientists to look at the evidence on all viral families and bacteria that can cause epidemics and pandemics, including those that may be released with the thawing of permafrost,” said WHO spokesperson Dr Margaret Harris.
“Like his workspace, Claverie’s friendly disposition and ready smile are underlaid with an intimidating level and range of expertise. Coming from a background of theoretical particle physics, applied computer science, and biochemisty, he had no formal training in immunology — something Claverie says conversely proved an advantage in his career, coming to the field free of preconceptions.”
“He initiated the work on permafrost after reading that a flowering plant was revived from a piece of fruit that was frozen for 30,000 years,” says Chantal Abergel, Claverie’s wife and an experimental biologist who heads the laboratory’s operations. “He thought if something as complex as a flowering plant could be revived, then we could expect to revive viruses too from permafrost.”
Claverie first showed “live” viruses could be extracted from the Siberian permafrost and successfully revived in 2014. For safety reasons his research focused only on viruses capable of infecting amoebas, which are far enough removed from the human species to avoid any risk of inadvertent contamination. But he felt the scale of the public health threat the findings indicated had been under-appreciated or mistakenly considered a rarity.
So, in 2019, his team proceeded to isolate 13 new viruses, including one frozen under a lake more than 48,500 years ago, from seven different ancient Siberian permafrost samples — evidence to their ubiquity. Publishing the findings in a 2022 study, he emphasized that a viral infection from an unknown, ancient pathogen in humans, animals or plants could have potentially “disastrous” effects.
“50,000 years back in time takes us to when Neanderthal disappeared from the region,” he says. “If Neanderthals died of an unknown viral disease and this virus resurfaces, it could be a danger to us.”
“Some scientists also fear that technology — such as Russia’s floating nuclear power plant, the Akademik Lomonosov — could transform previously unreachable areas along Siberia’s coastline into mining hubs as ice-free routes through the Arctic circle increase accessibility. Mining these deeper depths, beyond the active layer that thaws every summer, would increase the possibility for human interaction with a potentially harmful ancient pathogen, Claverie says.
That underscores the dilemma intrinsic to research too — that hunting down the next big threat to humanity could inadvertently propagate the danger. Potential for cross contamination during sampling expeditions is high. As such, some are beginning to advocate less proactive, resource-hungry, approaches instead.”
It appears that, even though some considered “Covid-19” to be Disease X, the true arrival of this mysterious player has yet to actually occur. “Covid” was simply the opening act. It was Disease X until it no longer served the purpose of being one. The luster of “Covid” has worn off as it is yesterday's news. Disease X is in need of a fresh coat of paint. Thus, like the carbon copy singers and bands that rise up to take the place of the older generation of musicians as the “next big thing,” there is a new Disease X being groomed and promoted in order to keep the fans in anticipation of its arrival. The real star of the show has yet to take the stage.
When will this egnimatic performer make its appearance? What members of the band can we look forward to seeing? Will Disease X be accompanied by the Lab-Created Bioweapons or the Zoonotic Spillovers? Will we see the presence of the Bacterial Boogeymen or the Furious Fungi? Perhaps we will finally get to see Disease X and the Zombie “Viruses.” What hits will they perform? Will we hear powerful new tunes, or will we relive the classics of yesterday? My guess is that we will be in for at least one cover of a popular top-ten billboard hit:
Once Disease X graces us with its presence, claiming the fans that it was geared towards, it will eventually fall out of favor. Like “Covid” before it, the “new” Disease X will fade into the background in order to be replaced by the next big thing to take up the mantle. This cycle will continue, producing recycled versions of the greatest hits, pretending that it is offering something new when, in reality, we have heard this exact same song many times before.is back again with another round of damning Freedom of Information requests busting the germ theory hoax wide open for all to see. dove into some of the issues related to “virus isolation.” took a look at some myths surrounding deodorant and how to successfully detox yourself from them. spoke with Dr. Stefano Scoglio and examined if graphene oxide exists in the vaccines as well as whether it actually even exists.
Dr. Tom Cowan and Dr. Mark Bailey provided an excellent response to the HART group on their position on the “no virus” topic.
Here is a very entertaining and catchy song about the fraud of virology. 😉
