Virus # 26”: Chapter 4 Director’s Version (A Serialized Novel by Robert K. Stephen)

Chapter 4 “Some of the Path of Destruction of COVID-19”

So you now know it originated from Wuhan, China with the co-operation either knowingly or innocently with the American presidential administration.

We know that it gave China a relatively tame go but ravaged Italy and Spain initially and gradually took a severe death toll of 3,678,000 in the United States. Any country or continent without a fully functioning and accessible medical system was not as originally thought hammered mercilessly. When the first wave hit the low African case count perhaps was the most unexpected but not the most surprising. Most Mideast states like Iran and Iraq were pummelled. India and Pakistan were not busted in the chops which as many of my colleagues predicted they would be. Bad reporting the mainstream medical establishment cried. Actually as many of us had concluded their low case count was based on the scientific fact most of the population had not been vaccinated against measles and smallpox. It was incorrectly thought that the vast amount of turmeric, cumin and curry in the mostly vegetarian Indian diet boosted the immunity system of many Indians.

I mention the first wave but there were many more like one in September 2020 we attributed to premature reopening of economies. There were two minor waves in 2021. By the close of 2022 Canada was in its seventh wave.

The September 2020 (which carried on into March of 2021) wave struck with a vengeance as the opening of economies was a green light to “mass murder” a term commonly used by many towards the political decision makers who gleefully opened the economy in a quest to return to normalcy. The fact of so many First Worlders took to flying here and there to be with their families particularly for Christmas and New Years augmented the death toll causing it to be nicknamed the Santa Claus surge. Successive surges of COVID-19 took another 375,000 Americans. Canada lost 75,000 of its citizens and again to due poor diet and health Canada’s First Nation citizens comprised 20,000 of the 75,000 dead. Aboriginal communities throughout the globe suffered the same high death rate. The elderly in Canada’s scandalously ill maintained long term care facilities were virtually eliminated. The lack of measles and chicken pox vaccinations seemed more of an immunity grantor in the Third World countries. The mainstream medial establishment weaned on Big Pharma propaganda and rigged peer studies would never believe a lack of vaccinations was in effect very effective immunity against COVID 19.

So the COVID-19 death toll was very hefty;

  • 5,053,000 in the United States. Comorbidity factors particularly obesity, its own epidemic in the United States, are attributed to many of these deaths. The lack of socialized medicine also raised COVID-19’s kill rate for Latinos and African Americans. The US medical system was slipping. Once the best in the word was actually in decline for a decade prior to COVID despite the fact it spent the most per capita in the world on healthcare. The medical industrial complex had favoured more testing with expensive medical equipment and Big Pharma championed drugs. The American medical establishment focused on identifying disease and then administering pharmaceuticals to manage the symptoms. Little attention was paid to prevent disease as it was not profitable.
  • 75,000 Canadians perished with its severely downsized and disorganized medical system.
  • Africa with a primitive medical structure did rather well. The 2021 Ebola outbreak in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Chad may have scrambled the COVID-19 fatality numbers.
  • 1,000,000 in India and Pakistan both like Africa having a largely non-existent medical system but low measles and chickenpox vaccination rates. It was incorrectly thought that certain spices in Indian and Pakistan food had created a better immunity system.

Where measles and chickenpox vaccination rates were low it seemed that fact offered some natural immunity to COVID 19.

Then poof, herd immunity kicked in in 2024 and the virus was gone according to the global politico-medico elite. Well viruses are very clever. They never die but rather mutate and so get ready for COVID-19 Plus.

There is more to COVID-19’s history than statistics and we’ll get to that soon.

By the time an incompletely tested a vaccination was ready in late 2020 it was too late because COVID-19 was on its way to continual mutation originating in South Africa which started with the second wave. The efficacy of the vaccine was reduced to lower than 50%. With each new wave Big Pharma licked its greedy chops. A vaccine for each strain. A corporate management’s senior management team’s dream! Big management bonuses funded by fear and manipulated by greed. At one point a silent minority in the medical system seeing countless reinfections amongst the vaccinated began to wonder if the vaccination game was a sham. Of course, challenge the politico medical elite on vaccination efficacy you risked being categorized as a right-wing nut.

You ask were there any “winners”? On a proportional basis Sweden was the country with the lowest death rate due to its strict social distancing, high nutritional standards and excellent socialized medicine. On the other hand Greece with less than a first class medical system acted aggressively throughout the COVID-19 waves did very well almost as good as Sweden. What was their secret? The Mediterranean diet?  Any answer is possible with the Wuhan virus!
