What’s likeliest to kill more than 10 million human beings in the next 20 years? It’s probably not what you’d think.
There’s something out there that’s as bad as war, something that kills as many people as war, and Bill Gates doesn’t think we’re ready for it.
“Look at the death chart of the 20th century,” he says, because he’s the kind of guy that looks at death charts. “I think everybody would say there must be a spike for World War I. Sure enough, there it is, like 25 million. And there must be a big spike for World War II, and there it is, it’s like 65 million. But then you’ll see this other spike that is as large as World War II right after World War I, and most people, would say, ‘What was that?'”
“Well, that was the Spanish flu.”
In a 1990 paper on “The Anthropology of Infectious Disease,” Marcia Inhorn and Peter Brown estimated that infectious diseases “have likely claimed more lives than all wars, noninfectious diseases, and natural disasters put together.”
Infectious diseases are our oldest, deadliest foe.
And they remain so today. “In a good year, flu kills over 10,000 Americans,” says Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “In a bad year, it kills over five times that. If we have a pandemic, it will be much worse. People think the H1N1 flu wasn’t so bad. But more than 1,000 American kids died from H1N1!”
In 2014, the world avoided a horrific global outbreak of Ebola, thanks to thousands of selfless health workers — plus, frankly, thanks to some very good luck. In hindsight, we know what we should have done better. So, now’s the time, Bill Gates suggests, to put all our good ideas into practice, from scenario planning to vaccine research to health worker training. As he says, “There’s no need to panic … but we need to get going.”
The massive coronavirus outbreak has raised the question: Could anyone have seen this coming? Billionaire Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates did – publicly warning in 2015 that most countries are unprepared for the real probability of an infectious pandemic, and asserting “if anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s most likely to be a highly infectious virus, rather than a war.” In this special report, MSNBC’s Ari Melber reports on Gates’ past warnings, his public health work, his repeated efforts to personally lobby Donald Trump on these issues, and potential implications for battling this pandemic – and the next one. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC.
Trevor and Bill Gates discuss coronavirus testing, accelerating vaccine development and how the world will rebound.
If crisis is a means by which Democrats achieve their political ends — and it is; just think of their famous “never let a crisis go to waste” playbook — then imagine what coronavirus means to the globalists.
What a dizzying opportunity for them to achieve massive goals.
This is new world order time — one world order time, in the teachings of the Bible believers.
Nathan Shepard is a bible scholar with a background in theology and archeology. He has spent more than 17 years studying the ancient scriptures and how the words of the prophets became historical fact over time.
Now, his spine chilling theory links present times events to bible prophecies in a clear and concise way… and foretells a very sinister future for the US. From that moment on, he decided that he must become a survival expert, train and prepare for the worst disaster in human history…
Not only is America’s economy crashing. Not only have the world’s producers come to a grinding halt. But citizens are in fear. They don’t know who or what to believe. They’re hunkering in homes, at government’s order. Police are in the streets, enforcing quarantines.
Churches have closed their doors — some of ‘em, because they face the threat of fines and court action if they don’t.
Savings accounts and 401(k)s are being depleted by the day.
Beaches are closed, as are public parks.
“L.A. sheriff orders all gun stores closed amid coronavirus shutdown,” The Los Angeles Times reported.Second Amendment rights are in jeopardy.
Wall Street profits are tumbling. Jobless claims are skyrocketing. Congress is being called to act and act quickly to pass legislation that bails out business, doles out checks, saves the citizens who find themselves in sudden positions of unemployment.
And when President Donald Trump dares to suggest the obvious — that America needs to get back to work, get back in business, get back into the game of life?
There are oh-so-plenty of leftist, anti-Trump, even anti-American forces and sources ready to jump down his throat, to rail against his leadership.Politically speaking, coronavirus is proving a great tool for the left.
The Democrats, with their pitifully poor presidential pick of Joe Biden, know a good crisis when they see one. So do their mouthpieces in the media, who scream at every turn about the potential of millions of lives to be saved if only Americans would quarantine — hoping listeners don’t realize the silliness and scientific unsoundness of such claims.
How to prove those numbers? How to prove, for example, shutting down beaches and parks saves lives — any lives, never mind a set, specific, finite number of lives? Really, how to arrive at any statistical truth when the numbers are constantly changing?After all, a 2% amid the storm can change into a 0.5% when the storm clouds clear — can change into a 0.0005% when the dust settles and the final numbers are actually counted, in context of the whole.
And therein lies one of the biggest problems with this coronavirus craze — the inability for the average citizen to discern what’s truth versus what’s hyperbole. Because the Democrats, with their “never let any crisis go to waste” mindset, underscored by Nancy Pelosi’s recent try at padding the coronavirus bill with all kinds of far left ridiculous wish-list items, sure do know how to wax hyperbolic when necessary.They sure do know how to grab attention and drum up the panic, when politically expedient, that is.
And just think: All the more so the global forces who would seek to strip America of all greatness, redistribute U.S. wealth to the world’s poorest nations, implement a one currency system that can be controlled by a select few, and design a total top-down approach to governing that melds borders and cultures into one.
Oh, and yes, don’t forget — that wipes out any religion that interferes with worship of the government.
A new world order. A one world order.
Biblically speaking, this will come.
We have all heard the conspiracy theories about the collapse of the economy that will turn money into worthless paper and dust… The end is near?
“[A]bout that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father,” the Gospel of Mark states.
Right. Time will tell. Nobody else will.
But isn’t it interesting that the coronavirus is currently stripping Americans of their freedoms to assemble, freedoms to worship in church, freedoms to buy and sell, freedoms to exercise their Second Amendment rights, freedoms to live a life unfettered by a growing burdensome government?
It’s a temporary situation, no doubt. With Trump in charge, it’s almost definitely a temporary situation.
But one day — and on this, bet the farm — it won’t be. And that right there is the real take-away lesson for this coronavirus age.
