Pestilences are quite rampant in Africa. Tropical diseases are part and parcel of our existence. Unlike many places on the planet, pestilences still prevail and continue to cause havoc on the continent. Malaria, typhus, typhoid, cholera, sleeping sickness, yellow fever, river blindness, TB, snail fever, etc., etc., regularly kill thousands of people on a daily basis! AIDS took center stage from the early 1980s to about mid 2010s. Since AIDS was considered a severe impediment to all sorts of sexual activities, hence procreation, it scared and psychologically debilitated many a youth. Awareness and consequent measures managed to reduce the AIDS epidemic. Ebola might well be the new game in Africa, so to speak. It is recognized as one of the upcoming pestilences we might face in the near future. Nevertheless, Ebola vaccines are being attempted, amongst many places, in Cuba, Russia and China!
Experts and pundits alike tell us Africa will be devastated by Covid-19, without adequately elaborating the ‘whys’. These so-called experts predicted that the US would lose over two million people in short order, on the account of Covid-19. It seems these quack doctors/experts are now singing a different tune. Be that as it may, the whole fear mongering and terror inducing pronouncements seem to have done major damage to the old ways of doing things, all across the globe. May be that is the was the intention in the first place. The gullible sheeple (human mass) as usual, is frightened out of its wits. Laws that are being promulgated in many of the nation-states are bound to enforce changes on its livelihood, comprehensively! Don‘t forget; the world economy has been on the precipice, since at least 2008. The declared pandemic might serve as an opportune moment to restructure the world system. Incidentally, the official definition of a pandemic used to be, amongst other things, a death to infection ratio or fatality rate of 12%; not the current 0.1 to 0.5% of Covid-19! Many are still perplexed that things can change so much in such a short time. To this end, genuine scientists, not on the pay of Big Pharma, Big Governments, Big Banks, etc., who are not in research primarily for the money, have been airing their disagreements with the on going ‘paid science’ of the establishment. Naturally, this is something the ‘deep state’ (military-intelligence-industrial-banking-media-complex) doesn’t like, hence, is doing all it can to stop facts/truth from coming to light!
Covid-19 is a flu type affliction, which is usually more prevalent in the temperate regions of the world. In Africa such flues are not as common. One cannot in all honesty say what the impact of Covid-19 would be on Africa in the coming weeks, months or years. Some have predicted that Ethiopia alone would have about 23 million cases of Covid-19 resulting in millions of deaths! We agree precaution is very important, but in the case of Covid-19, we think exaggeration has taken the better of us. ’Covid-19 will be horrible in the developing world, she said. My heart is in Africa. I am worried. The only reason why the reported cases of the coronavirus disease in Africa is low now is most likely because there have not been wide testing of people. The disease is going to bite hard on the continent. I see dead bodies in the streets of Africa.’ Melinda Gates of the eponymous foundation. When total fatality (documented) is only three from Covid-19 in Ethiopia, in the last three months, extrapolating this three deaths to millions of deaths in the coming few weeks or months borders the irresponsible. We admit, Melinda Gates is very much in the know when it comes to Africa’s agriculture and health, not only productive! But since we are neither clairvoyants/fortune tellers nor pandemic planners/plandemics, there is not much we can say about the declared pandemic, except to look at the hard facts borne of genuine science, not paid science! See the article published by the Swiss Propaganda Research next column.
It is obvious Africa doesn’t produce top-notch scientists on regular basis. Even when it does, it has a hard time retaining them. After all, there aren’t many incentives to keep high caliber people inbound. General work environment and living condition might be the major impediments, but other factors such as the overbearing system of governance, mostly based on buffoonery, corruption and outright idiocy, is another one. As a result, instead of quality science, it is politically tainted science along with paid science that is officially imported by the politicos, with the help of our Ivy Idiots (Intellectuals yet Idiots-Taleb) that continue to saturate the airwaves! Since African nation states have no real sovereignty, it would be a waste of time to sincerely dwell on such matters. Nonetheless and from the look of things/data, the prognosis of Covid-19, as pontificated by the global establishment might not come to pass, God willing! In late modernity, where the profit motive supersedes life itself, one must always remain critical, no matter what the topic under discussion is. It is advisable to note that even in the deeply studied fields of the hard sciences (verifiable with potential falsifiability) there are always and will be, lingering reservations. Here is a four decades tug-of war between prominent scientists. It involves the connection between HIV and AIDS. The following is one extraction from the specific milieu.
‘Kary Mullis … is thoroughly convinced that HIV is not the cause of AIDS. With regard to the viral-load tests, which attempt to use PCR for counting viruses, Mullis has stated: “Quantitative PCR is an oxymoron.” PCR is intended to identify substances qualitatively, but by its very nature is unsuited for estimating numbers. Although there is a common misimpression that the viral-load tests actually count the number of viruses in the blood, these tests cannot detect free, infectious viruses at all; they can only detect proteins that are believed, in some cases wrongly, to be unique to HIV. The tests can detect genetic sequences of viruses, but not viruses themselves. Here is Mullis himself:
“Its not even probable, let alone scientifically proven, that HIV causes AIDS. If there is evidence that HIV causes AIDS, there should be scientific documents, which either singly or collectively demonstrate that fact, at least with a high probability. There are no such documents. Scientists are doing an awful lot of damage to the world in the name of helping it. I don’t mind attacking my own fraternity because I am ashamed of it.” Kary Mullis, inventor of the PCR system (polymerase chain reaction) and a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry (1993). Good Day!
