World Warned Over Killer Flu Pandemic

World warned over killer flu pandemic
By Ben Russell, Political Correspondent
Monday, 21 July 2008

The world is failing to guard against the inevitable spread of a devastating flu pandemic which could kill 50 million people and wreak massive disruption around the globe, the Government has warned.

In evidence to a House of Lords committee, ministers said that early warning systems for spotting emerging diseases were "poorly co-ordinated" and lacked "vision" and "clarity". They said that more needed to be done to improve detection and surveillance for potential pandemics and called for urgent improvement in rapid-response strategies.

The Government's evidence appeared in a highly critical report from the Lords Intergovernmental Organisations Committee, which attacked the World Health Organisation (WHO) as "dysfunctional" and criticised the international response to the threat of an outbreak of disease which could sweep across the globe.

The Government said: "While there has not been a pandemic since 1968, another one is inevitable." Ministers said it would could kill between two and 50 million people worldwide and that such an outbreak would leave up to 75,000 people dead in Britain and cause "massive" disruption.

Peers joined ministers calling for urgent action to build up early warning systems across the Third World that can identify and neutralise outbreaks of potentially deadly new strains of disease before they are swept across the globe by modern trade and travel. Peers also called for new action to monitor animal diseases, warning of the potentially disastrous effects of conditions such as the H5N1 bird flu virus jumping to humans and demanded that Britain step up funding for the WHO to tackle the threat.

With international tourist journeys now reaching 800 million a year, giving unprecedented potential for epidemics to spread across borders, and many cities rapidly growing in developing countries, which would provide "fertile ground" to spread disease, peers on the committee warned that conditions such as Sars, avian influenza and ebola "have the potential to cause rapid and devastating sickness and death across much of the world if they are not detected and checked in time".

Their report said: "We have been warned that an influenza pandemic is overdue and that when – rather than if – it comes the effects could be devastating, particularly if the strain of the virus should be of the H5N1 variety that has been seen in south-east Asia in recent years.

Come again?
Back in 2017 at forum on pandemic preparedness at Georgetown University Dr. Fauci made an interesting statement. Fauci told the audience the Trump administration will not only be challenged by ongoing global health threats such as influenza and HIV, but also a surprise disease outbreak.

Part Of The Problem, Not The Solution I

Post by Riddick » 04-08-2020 11:45 AM

Even as the South Korean solution to COVID-19 (widespread testing and the hydroxychloroquine-zinc cure) is beginning to work here, at Monday's Coronavirus Task Force press briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci ignored the success. Instead, responding to a question directed to him, and him only, he pretended the only way the U.S. could get back to normal was through vaccines and new therapies.

Businesses and researchers are working to get out a vaccine right away. Fauci has repeatedly said it can't be done in less than 12 to 18 months. By contrast, in 2009 the CDC expedited the H1N1 vaccine process & got it done in 5 months. Why should approval take over a year now? Apparently NIAID (one of the institutes of Fauci's NIH) is planning on slow walking both COVID-19 therapies and vaccines. FULL STORY

Just a "Coincidence" I'm sure ??! Just the name of Bill Gates , makes my skin crawl. He and his other power broker friends Are the real ,unearthly , Dominates of Power at the moment. All Pro-Chinese at the Moment. The only thing is.......China has a good chance of "Crashing" before the rest do, It has taken on most of the World debt, Not including it's own. The unknown is just how much of the USA our Politicians have already sold to the Chinese, and any body else, to fill their pockets and depending on what political party in Power. I can safely say , if the Democrats win, We No longer Own even Ourselves.

Here are many Articles that will give you just a hint of of the Power being exerted. Using "Models" that are usually wrong and Made- Up, for what they are pushing.
