I have to say that I was amazed that the information about this event was still available online! Until I found THIS buried in one of the pdfs on the site:
“EVENT 201 MODEL Disclaimer: this model was used exclusively for the exercise in October 2019 and does not relate to and cannot be applied to the current 2019-nCoV outbreaks because the epidemiologic inputs in this model differ from what is observed in 2019-nCoV.”
So, I am using the information from the website, and doing what I can with it, but it is ALL SUSPECT, as I now know it has been ALTERED to fit current reality. I went to the Wayback Machine, and this page was as it is now as far back as I could go, which was February 3. The other pages don’t appear to show changes, but none were archived before 27 January, so who knows?
This is the link to the Event 201 website:
For those of us with open eyes, it is just so FUCKING OBVIOUS how the scenario in Event 201 parallels the current crisis. But for me the question is WHY hold such an event in the first place, if your plot is about to launch. WHY be so OBVIOUS? We’ll get into that later. First, I’ll synopsize the event itself.
The Event 201 exercise was held October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. It was held by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. As we know, Bill Gates is BIG VACCINE, a megalomaniac, and a partner of the ChiComs.
The “made up” virus for this scenario was a CORONAVIRUS called Coronavirus Acute Pulmonary Syndrome (CAPS). It originated with BATS, transferred to pigs, then humans. It started in a large city in South America. There are rumors online that the Event 201 virus was originally stated to have started in Wuhan China. This IS possible, given that one change in the information has already been noted.
Spread by “mildly symptomatic” people is possible with the fake CAPS. Approximately 50% of CAPS cases require hospitalization, many of them in an intensive care unit (ICU). The CAPS fatality rate in hospitalized patients is about 14%. The overall case fatality rate (CFR) is 7%. The average R0 is 1.74. The incubation period ranges from 5to 7 days.
For comparison, the World Health Organization estimated the REAL Wuhan Flu RO at between 1.4 and 2.5. The death rate is expected to be around 1-2%, but nobody really knows yet. Incubation ranges from 1 to 14 days. It seems the coronavirus in Event 201 is more severe than the Wuhan Flu, which is interesting, and I think may be significant.
Also, with the scenario virus, there is an existing medicine which may be effective against it, a fictional drug called extranavir. This also mimics the real-life Wu-Flu, with hydroxychloroquine, Remdesivir (sounds a lot like extranavir, doesn’t it?), and now even Ivermectin, an anti-parasitic for horses and people, working to kill the virus.
All of this sounds weirdly familiar, right? SO many parallels.
I found it interesting that with regards to a VACCINE for the fictional CAPS, Event 201 was pretty pessimistic:
“Development of a vaccine against the CAPS virus will likely take years to achieve. The vaccine development process can take more than a decade. In pandemic situations, the timeline for vaccine development could possibly be shortened, but developing and manufacturing a vaccine against CAPS in time to control this pandemic is unlikely.”
Also, in parallel to what is being reported by some about REAL WuFlu, the possibility that a vaccine for CAPS could exacerbate problems with OTHER viruses:
“Some experiments have raised the possibility that immunity incurred from certain coronavirus vaccines can be short lived and that enhanced disease may result from certain coronavirus vaccines. This has prompted some concern that vaccines targeting coronaviruses (eg, MERS, SARS) could lead to adverse events.”
Maybe the plan is to magically “develop” a vaccine in “record time” for the Wu-Flu? One that they assure us doesn’t have adverse effects?
They go on to discuss the supply chain for medical countermeasures (MCM) and vaccines. The consensus seems to be, as we are finding in the real world right now, that the supply chain for MCM is inadequate to the task of a global pandemic:
“Challenges with ensuring equitable access to and distribution of MCMs have been encountered in the past. Countries have withheld sharing samples in an effort to secure access to MCMs.”
Next, and importantly for us as citizen reporters, Event 201 addressed the communication aspect of a pandemic. Here is a quote from the website:
“These false messages are often defined as misinformation, erroneous information shared through various channels, and disinformation, purposefully spread false or misleading information. The information environment is increasingly made up of a mix of information coming from web sources and other media, in addition to historical sources such as print and TV news media. However, the influence of social media has made the spread of false information even more pernicious.”
“Disinformation campaigns are widely recognized in the political world but have been identified in the public health realm as well. In the fall of 2018, a team of researchers systematically identified a concerted effort to spread disinformation and discord about vaccine safety. Public health response efforts for the currently ongoing Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have been challenged by disruptive rumors that have occasionally targeted public health responders. Misinformation during a public health emergency is a particularly concerning threat, because of the time-dependent nature of outbreak response and the corrosive effect misinformation can have on public trust. Current solutions to the spread of mis-and disinformation are limited. Social media platforms have attempted to change their algorithms to limit the spread of false information and promote correct information, but the problem of misinformation continues. Many misinformation response actions have been developed to be used against political misinformation and disinformation but may be applied in response to an epidemic. More than 50 countries globally have taken different government-led actions that, in theory, aim to combat misinformation. These actions can range from media literacy campaigns and fact-checking websites to more extreme measures, such as jailing users for publishing content deemed to be misinformation. In some cases, authorities have shut down social media sites or the internet entirely.”
This gang is DEFINITELY NOT HAPPY that we are out here and able to co-opt their narrative! They would like to see us in JAIL for daring.
There was discussion at Event 201 about the financial implications of CAPS, and the reserves of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, national governments, and private charities to handle a pandemic. In the scenario, low and middle-income countries would require a “bail-out.”
Well, that’s the synopsis of the information available about Event 201. Now for some speculation on my part.
I started out this inquiry asking WHY would Gates et. al. have this OBVIOUS event in parallel with the release of an actual CORONAVIRUS? It is so blatantly comparable to the current situation, EXCEPT for the hospitalization and DEATH RATES, which are MUCH HIGHER with the fictional CAPS.
It got me thinking. WHAT IF the goal is to make the current REAL WU-FLU situation as miserable, scary, economically devastating, and awful as possible, and then turn and point to FICTIONAL CAPS VIRUS to say, “see, as BAD as this was, it could be MUCH WORSE. You have to LET US DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY to prevent the NEXT ONE.”
I don’t know, but I would love input from you all on WHY you think they would have this scenario which so clearly mimics what we are experiencing, only with a much WORSE virus.
Next, I plan to look at the “Players” in Event 201. I will report back anything I find.
