They really can’t help themselves, can they?
The next major pandemic is coming. It’s already on the horizon, and could be far worse — killing millions more people — than the last one.
Be afraid, very afraid.
We don’t yet know for certain what form it will take — just that its arrival, according to global health experts, is not just a possibility but a probability.
We’ve no idea what it is, or how it will manifest itself, but be scared anyway because we say so. As for global health experts, they have demonstrated that they cannot be relied upon to tell the truth during the covid episode, so fuck ’em, frankly. This is a desperate attempt to be relevant.
That’s horrific enough.
No, it isn’t. It’s a blatant attempt to scare people. There is nothing horrific going on beyond that.
Even more terrifying is the fact that Britain and the rest of the world have so far done very little to prepare for it.
Sigh… In late 2019, we – and pretty much everyone else – had a pandemic plan in place. It was a good plan as Sweden demonstrated.
To combat Disease X — as the World Health Organisation ominously calls it — we will once again need vaccines to be engineered and delivered in record time. But, as things stand, there is absolutely no guarantee that will happen.
Life itself isn’t guaranteed. So we live for the day. Or you can hide under he bed and wait for the WHO to come to your rescue. Bear in mind that this life is something none of us will survive. We all have to die someday.
By contrast, we may well look back at the Covid-19 crisis as a walk in the park — and of course it was nothing of the kind.
Only because the fuckwits abandoned their perfectly good plan in favour of media induced panic.
Today, it’s all too easy to forget that governments around the world were dangerously unprepared for a global health crisis; indeed many viewed it as the stuff of apocalyptic fiction.
They were prepared, they chose to abandon the plan and panic. And two really bad flu seasons akin to the Hong Kong flu of 1969 or the flu pandemic of 1919, is not apocalyptic. Not even close.
These people really do want us to live in a permanent state of fear. Well, I refuse. The article is nothing more than the usual media induced panic mongering. Risible bollocks, all of it.
