CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Microsoft multi-billionaire Bill Gates is calling for a "global alert system" backed by "mega-diagnostic platforms" that could test over "20% of the global population every week" in preparation for the next pandemic.
"The world wasn't ready for the COVID-19 pandemic. I think next time will be different," declares the pro-abortion philanthropist, warning that "the threat of the next pandemic will always be hanging over our heads — unless the world takes steps to prevent it."
Gates, who is one of three people in the world with a net worth exceeding $100 billion, paints an apocalyptic scenario in his 2021 annual letter demanding that "pandemic preparedness must be taken as seriously as we take the threat of war."
"The world needs to regularly run germ games — simulations that let us practice, analyze and improve how we respond to disease outbreaks, just as war games let the military prepare for real-life warfare," exhorts Gates, boasting his foundation has donated $1.75 billion in the fight against COVID-19.
Researchers say the vaccine zealot has become "the subject of a diverse and rapidly expanding universe of conspiracy theories," including 44% of Republicans and 19% of Democrats in the United States who believe Gates "is linked to a plot to use vaccinations as a pretext to implant microchips into people."
"Until vaccines reach everyone, new clusters of disease will keep popping up," Gates asserts. "Those clusters will grow and spread. Schools and offices will shut down again. The cycle of inequality will continue."
Gates did not confirm if a blanket bombing of the globe with vaccines would include encoding of medical information in a patient's skin using near-infrared quantum dots (NIR QDs) — invisible to the naked eye but detectable when exposed to near-infrared light.
A Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation developed the technique — popularly misunderstood as "a cover for implanting some form of microchip, radio frequency identification (RFID) chip or other digital tracking device" — interpreted by some as the satanic "Mark of the Beast," the Australian Strategic Policy Institute noted.
The MIT report, published in December 2019 in Science Translational Medicine, confirmed that "intradermal QDs can be used to reliably encode information and can be delivered with a vaccine, which may be particularly valuable in the developing world and open up new avenues for decentralized data storage and biosensing."
"Paper vaccination cards or certificates are the most widely used records in the developing world but are subject to error and possessed by only 60% of all households in low-and middle-income countries," MIT researchers argued as a rationale for implanting information under the skin — "a platform that is robust, inexpensive and easy to use."
Microsoft donated $1 million to the ID2020 Alliance in September 2019 seeking to "leverage immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity" and to use biometrics to improve vaccine coverage in developing nations.
In his letter, Gates advocates the widespread use of the controversial mRNA vaccine technology, describing it "in large part" a "success" against COVID-19 and explains that "mRNA vaccines are a new type of vaccine that delivers instructions to teach your body to fight off a pathogen."
"Although our foundation has been funding research into this new platform since 2014, no mRNA vaccine had been approved for use before last month. This pandemic has massively sped up the platform's development process," he writes.
Gates predicts that "mRNA vaccines will become faster to develop, easier to scale and more stable to store over the next five to 10 years" and would be a "huge breakthrough, both for future pandemics and for other global health challenges" like HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.
Top medical researchers, however, have warned against the use of experimental gene-based vaccines.
"Human experiments are underway with gene-based vaccines whose ominous dangers have never been revealed to the thousands of unknowing volunteers," warn award-winning Thai-German medical doctor, microbiologist, virologist and immunologist Sucharit Bhakdi and biochemist Karina Reiss in their bestseller Corona, False Alarm? Facts and Figures.
A December 2020 review published by the Penn Medicine Center for Evidence-based Practice concludes that current evidence on mRNA vaccines "is made up entirely of small early-stage trials, nearly all of which examined only short-term outcomes" and have not assessed "the risk of serious but uncommon adverse events."
"There are no specific guidelines for use of messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines or contraindications to mRNA vaccines. No large trials of any mRNA vaccine have been completed yet," the findings state.
But echoing Pope Francis' slogan "no one is saved alone; we can only be saved together," Gates notes that "for all our differences, everyone in this world is connected biologically by a microscopic network of germs and particles — and that, like it or not, we're all in this together."
