Virus # 26 Director’s Cut : Chapter 5 “Born in Pig Shit: Welcome to COVID-19 Plus”

COVID-19 Plus appeared in 2025. It was thought to have originated near a pork processing plant in the state of Virginia so it can be honestly said to be an American virus. It was not in the slaughterhouse that it was born but rather in a pork feces holding tank adjacent to a huge pork processing plant.

A slaughterhouse must dispose of swine feces and in the United States transport of liquified animal feces across state lines was illegal due to the widespread understanding of the toxicity of such feces. Not even Haiti would accept them!

So the feces were stored in huge tanks. These are the same tanks you see at oil refineries. Hundreds of thousands of litres of pig shit with no place to go. They were a powerful breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. And some of the feces were affected by the COVID-19 virus and in a toxic cesspool a mutation developed which wouldn’t be a problem if the feces were contained in their storage tanks.

Well Mother Nature doesn’t always co-operate and often strikes back at the abuse humans have done to the eco-system and will strike back whether it be through a virus that kills off some of the population or through huge forest fires like the ones in Australia in 2019 and 2020 or massive tsunamis or hurricanes. In this case it was an earthquake that cracked one storage tank sending thousands of litres of sewage spewing out all over the fields by the storage tanks and into the nearby river.

You can guess what happens next. Human ingestion through contaminated water. The COVID-19 Plus virus, as we called this new brute, was coated in a protein shield and that prevented water, chlorine and fluoride from killing it. COVID-19 Plus sickened its victims almost identically to its predecessor COVID-19.

Humankind was spared the devastation cased by the earlier COVID-19 virus. We leant that the protein shield of the virus made this a very hearty virus and it bound itself to carbon particulate so it could latch on for a ride as did COVID-19.

COVID-19 Plus petered out in 18 months killing a mere 4,388,888. Why so quickly no one really knows. Some of us medicos surmised that the ineffective COVID-19 vaccinations actually worked against COVID-19 Plus. The issue was what was going to be the next mutation?
