There has been a lot put out there lately about Bill Gates being “behind” the COVID-19 outbreak -- at the very least for massive profits, and at the worst, as a means of “population control.”
On the surface, this may sound like another in a long-list of coronavirus conspiracy theories that have spread almost as rapidly as the disease itself. However, there is a compelling series of dots to connect here.
Consider this. Merely weeks before the first cases of COVID-19 were announced out of Wuhan, The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, held a high-level pandemic exercise called “Event 201” that seems to have been a predictive blueprint for exactly the road we are now on with the coronavirus outbreak.
On October 18, 2019, representatives from each of the aforementioned groups descended on New York City to discuss how they would respond to “a severe pandemic” much like the one we are now dealing with.
Conspiracy theories aside, the timing of Event 201 has to be considered suspicious in light of what we know now about the coronavirus. The waters become even more muddied when you know that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, funded Pirbright Institute, which owns a patent on coronavirus for vaccine creation purposes.
As crazy as it might sound, it is not beyond the realm of possibilities that Gates created and endorsed the release of COVID-19 so that he could profit from an exclusive vaccine for it.
Yet, there are others who think Gate’s could be behind the pandemic for even more nefarious purposes. They suggest that Gate’s interest in COVID-19 is also about depopulating the planet as part of Bill Gates’ admitted efforts to use vaccination and “health care” as a means of reducing the world’s population by 10 to 15 percent.
In his defense, Gates has been warning about the lack of preparation and systems in place to deal with infectious disease threats that could lead to a pandemic, for decades, and not only in the weeks before COVID-19 hit.
Furthermore, it is true that Gates has contributed substantially to the development and delivery of vaccines around the world. But, these vaccines continue to prevent potential life-threatening diseases such as measles and polio, which would be the opposite of “population reduction.”
So, for every person that thinks that somehow Bill Gates is the demon behind the curtain pulling the strings on the coronavirus outbreak and response, there are just as many people saying that blaming him for COVID-19, is like blaming your cardiologist who warned you about heart disease after you have a heart attack.
But, what do you think? Is Gates a hero or a villain? Please comment below.
