  • Pls see these two links : the project the Rockefeller Center has elaborated for the next step of the “pandemic” . Pls note they do not consider at any moment the Covid 19 will extinguished it self, as any corona virus should and that they are putting huge amounts of money in their plan (and ask yourself to whom it will benefit ?). Also check this link from the same Rockefeller Foundation. These are scenarios written in 2010. The first one is Lock Step and is similar to Event 201.

  • The overwhelming majority of farmed animals are kept in dark, unsanitary, overcrowded factory farms, which stresses their immune systems. Worse, they’re bred primarily for rapid growth and maximum output, not robustness, and their genetic similarity makes them especially likely to transmit disease to one another.

  • Person expecting heart attack could save themselves by immediately starting Apaan Vayu Mudra and in few seconds the patient feels that he is feeling better. Same is the case this being used by Migraine patients. This has been tried by many patients with excellent results. Why not do research on this Mudra Yoga. Similarly practicing Pran Mudra and Varun Mudra.

  • Yoga is very good but needs proper training for those who are new to it. Bur Mudra Yoga is very easy to learn and practice. It could be done as a Preventive Health Care. It's very easy to learn and practice. It's part of Yoga theory but unfortunately it has been left out by vested interests. There is Mudra for most of the diseases, therefore those who cannot afford to buy medicines can keep themselves fit by practicing Mudras. more details given in,

    • He didn’t predict anything he just knew another pandemic would come. It’s obvious look at our world’s history! He’s just smarter than most of us. There are many organizations/people that are focused on studying pandemics and stuff like what is happening now with Covid. Besides Bill reads and has read way too many books! He knows a lot about health care/ vaccines/ diseases

  • how come bill knew of this in presence of thousands of scientists when did he convert himself into a health expert or is it correct to say a virus himself which does not have any antivirus, this sounds very doubtful of his intensions , if he thinks he can turn the humans into filmlike mutationed robots he must have very well prepared with the statements, its high time he donated for the well being of humans. its a real surprise how he is updated with even what the scientists dont understand and great economists dont, sonds very alieneted

They're also running projects for Childhood Cancers, Africa Rainfall Modeling, Microbiome Immunity.

  • Herr Gates ist informiert, seine Ansichten sind vernünftig. Herr Gates muss Angst nicht schüren. Die Angst lebt in unserem Gehirn. Herr Gates muss uns nicht kontrollieren. Unsere Begrenzungen und unsere Voreingenommenheit durch was auch immer und so unterschiedlich diese auch ist, kontrolliert uns von ganz allein. Und Herr Gates muss uns nicht mit einem Chip zerstören. Dies tun wir von ganz allein. Und wenn ich sage wir, so meine ich den Menschen, jeden Menschen, alle Menschen und in meiner eigenen Begrenzheit auch mich. Denn wäre es nicht so, dann gäbe es nicht seit Jahrtausenden Chaos, Krieg, Hunger und was es halt sonst noch so an menschengemachtem Scheiß gibt. Aber warum ist das so? Und Herr Gates allein oder egal welche Gruppierung, ob religiös oder wissenschaftlich oder politisch oder sonst wie.... kann dies nicht ändern. Das Chaos der Welt, der Hass der Welt ist ein Hass der Menschen, jedes Einzelnen und egal wie ihr flieht ob ins Kloster oder sonst wohin oder sonst wie es ist der Mensch und sein Gehirn der unsere Probleme nicht lösen kann. Denn könnte er es, hätte er es schon getan. Warum ist das so? Wir sind voneinander getrennt. Wir, meine ich die Menschen, alle Menschen. Vielleicht müssen wir dieses Problem erst lösen. Wie das funktionieren könnte, darüber müssen klügere Menschen als ich nachdenken. Bis dahin finde ich den Ansatz von Herrn Gates erst mal auch nicht schlechter als andere...... Ihr müsst nicht meiner Meinung sein. Aber wenn ihr wollt könnt ihr drüber nachdenken

    • I'm gonna copy paste a thing I sad in another discussion because I'm too lazy to type it again. Sorry for my bad english though. Fucker's been working on eradicating Polio for years now. And he's vaccinating spree in Nigeria has been helping lots in that. The only places left with Polio after his vaccination campaign and investment into better sanitary infrastructure of the third world, are Nigeria and Afghanistan, mostly because doctors have been killed on site because of terrorist presence. In fact, if it weren't for the Boko Haram in Nigeria, a terrorist group that emerged in the early 2010s in the northern part of the country, Bill and his team would've had eradicated the disease from the region, remaining only in Afghanistan. I think this man has a lot to say about disease spread and prevention. Just 'cause you know him from doing something else it doesn't mean he's only done that thing. Read a bit into the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation. I suggest starting with the wiki article, and from there branch through other stuff.

  • Guys, I looked into it... It turns out Bill Gates is actually a shapeshifter from Proxima Centauri b. He came to Earth in 1960, killed the original Bill Gates, and assumed his form. His primary directive is to kill all human life and destroy the planet's atmosphere so he can harvest all of Earth's precious natural resources. First, he had to create a massive tech company to begin his surveillance and to get money and influence. Now he's in phase 2: Developing and deploying the vaccine of death to the masses.
