Monkeypox Mania

A case of monkeypox was identified in the US on or around May 18. Rah!

Cases have been confirmed in over ten countries outside of Africa, including the UK, Spain and Australia. Alarmist mainstream media is all over it. Rah!

But fret not, like the COVID-19 plandemic, monkeypox is also scripted.

In March 2021, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) jointly hosted a tabletop exercise with Munich Security Conference (MSC) called “Strengthening Global Systems to Prevent and Respond to High-Consequence Biological Threats” in which there was a

…global pandemic involving an unusual strain of monkeypox virus that first emerges in the fictional country of Brinia and eventually spreads globally. Later in the exercise, the scenario reveals that the initial outbreak was caused by a terrorist attack using a pathogen engineered in a laboratory with inadequate biosafety and biosecurity provisions and weak oversight. The exercise scenario concludes with more than three billion cases and 270 million fatalities globally.

Not surprisingly, the initial “attack” starts on 15 May 2022. And by January 2023, the virus has spread to 83 countries with 1.3 million fatalities.

With no known effective therapies or vaccines, countries have had to rely principally on non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic.

In other words, more lockdowns, contact tracing and mask-wearing. I am not saying this monkeypox business will unfold as written but it is “interesting”.

As with most exercises, it is supposed to be about the response and its lessons. If I have to summarize the four findings and the consequent five recommendations into a few sentences, it would something like this: Governments and the international community aren’t incapable of dealing with such a threat so they need more power and to spend more money to do more and act earlier. In short, more control.

I will comment on the second recommendation regarding early and proactive response:

National governments must adopt a “no-regrets” approach to pandemic response, taking anticipatory action—as opposed to reacting to mounting case counts and fatalities, which are lagging indicators.

You mean just like COVID-19? I am generalizing since each country responded differently but if, for argument’s sake, those in charge genuinely did not know what COVID-19 was except that it could be a major problem (partly because it could have been engineered) and were genuinely concerned in early 2020, they would have closed international borders immediately whilst having no lockdowns internally. Realizing in a month or so later that it was basically a bad flu, they then could have re-opened international borders whilst focusing on repurposing existing drugs. Instead, they did nothing initially, dismissed the possibility of the virus being engineered as “conspiracy theory”, allowed case numbers to rise and then acted like a bunch of maniacal alarmists by enforcing wholesale lockdowns based on cold- and flu-like symptoms. In other words, they did the opposite of what anyone with half a brain might do. How convenient.

It’s a relief to know that this year’s exercise involves “a localized bioweapons attack against cattle in the fictional country of Andoriban with a genetically engineered strain of the Akhmeta virus”. In this scenario, there are 120 million deaths over 20 months. Given the involvement of cows, am I supposed to read into this some sort of “meat shortage”? This is somewhat consistent with Bill Gates’s love of “synthetic beef”. And not surprisingly, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funds the NTI.

Also, the Akhmeta virus belongs to the genus that is related to smallpox and monkeypox and was found in Georgia in 2013. Georgia is not that far from Ukraine and both countries are known to have biolabs linked to the US. Funny that.

Given that these exercises, including the previous two in the series held in 2020 and 2019, involve engineered material being accidentally on purpose released, one would think those in power would be more open to discussing engineered viruses and biolabs, and know what to do in the real world.

Oh wait, hang on. I almost forgot, it’s not about our wellbeing.
