EVER since the advent of novel coronavirus, COVID-19, which started in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, the media have been awash with conspiracy theories regarding the vaccines to be used for managing the disease. At present, there are no drugs for effectively treating COVID-19. No vaccines have been found as all effort to invent one is still at experimental stages.
But there has been loud conspiracy theories, all pointing in one direction – to Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft and co-founder of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who has donated millions of dollars towards developing a vaccine for the management of the disease.
Gates has been accused of leading the Deep State and one world proponent’s attempt to control people of the world through alleged microchips that will be implanted in anybody who receives the vaccines. This, allegedly, will help in creating a one world government, where everybody can be monitored and controlled.
The allegation against Gates stems from his statement he made regarding vaccines at Ted conference, where he also talked of depopulation of the world. There was also a video where he stressed that vaccine was the only way out of the coronavirus pandemic. This prompted a popular Nigerian pastor David Oyedepo to ask in a viral video whether Gates is a medical doctor or God to be making such definitive statements.
Also, apart from Gates being a loud advocate of vaccine, which he emphasised as the only cure, Realnews gathered that in February, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation donated $100 million to vaccine research and treatment for the coronavirus.
This was part of the World Health Organisation, WHO’s request for $675 million in contributions to curb the spread of the virus. In June, the foundation pledged an additional $1.6 billion to the Gavi vaccine alliance, an organization focused on efforts to immunize children amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Gates said: “We want to make sure we don’t have people dying just because they don’t have access to the vaccine,” adding, “We will get a good deal on the vaccine, and we need the world to get a good deal on that. Many of the companies have committed themselves to that.”
Gates expects the United States Food and Drug Administration to do a good job of reviewing any potential vaccine despite the pressure to make one available to the public as soon as possible.
However, many religious leaders all over the world have accused the Gates of championing one world government, depopulation of Africa and blacks in particular through vaccines. These religious leaders recall what happened in the past when vaccinations were used kill a lot of people both in Africa and the United States.
For instance, Realnews reports that there was a video, which circulated in the social media where Minister Louis Farrakan, a Muslim religious cleric and civil rights activist, advised black Americans not to take the vaccine whenever it was invented. Farakkan also expressed fear if being killed for his position on the vaccine.
His statement came shortly after a video was also circulated by Bill and Melinda Gates advocating for vaccine as a treatment. Melinda actually said that once the vaccine is ready, blacks and minorities will first be given. This statement angered not a few who posit that the new vaccines should be administered on Whites first.
Apart from the opposition to the vaccine in the US, prominent African religious leaders in Nigeria like Chris Oyakhilome of the Christ Embassy and Chris Okotie, a former musician turned pastor, have expressed their reservations on the vaccine too. .
In a broadcast on YouTube, Okotie, stated that the vaccine meant to treat the COVID-19 pandemic was what the devil has attempted to do since creation to form communion with man like Jesus did in instituting the Holy Communion.
According to Okotie, “What the devil has attempted to do, is to create the pattern of communion in this situation. How? Communion involves that which is solid, and that which is liquid. The bread is solid, the wine is liquid. That’s what this vaccine project is all about.
“Bill Gates, as Commander of the Ten, like I mentioned in the numerology of his name, has dealt with the solid, which is what the bread is, by affecting what we eat, in what is called GMO; Genetically Modified Organisms, now found in what we eat. This is the pattern for the bread. The vaccine on the other hand, brings the liquid to you, just like the blood, and it is injected into you. So, it is received into you, because, when you drink the wine, it goes into your system, so that when you consume the GMO’s, and you receive the vaccine, you bring the body and blood together; so to speak, just as it is in communion; the body of Jesus Christ and His blood. That’s what replicates that pattern. And I told you that the reason for the communion is because it affects you on three dimensions: Your eyes, your vision. Your mouth, the words that you speak, because, the power of life and death resides in the tongue. Your hands, your enterprise, what you can do.
“So, what Bill Gates is doing; under the auspices of the United Nations, is to make sure that you receive the food … Many people did not complain about GMOs’, because they didn’t understand where this was leading. They thought it was just changing whatever nutritional values these things have. They did not understand the spiritual import: But now, they do.
“So, when you eat the genetically modified organisms that you eat, and you take the vaccine, you’ve entered into communion with Satan, with Lucifer, and that communion involves blood. Now, since the blood of Jesus is not what he’s talking about, or what he has to offer, he will require you to seek blood somewhere else, and the only place that you can find blood, is another human being. So, one of the things that the vaccine will make you do, is to become a ‘vampire’, who needs to drink blood for sustenance. But we as Christians, we don’t drink blood, we drink the wine, which is an emblem of the blood, and that sustains us spiritually. But his communion will require you drinking blood spiritually, so that you are a vampire for your sustenance. That is why you have seen all of the movies about vampires.”
Realnews also observed that the Catholic Church in Nigeria has moved from praying for effective vaccine to be developed for curing the disease to effective medication or drugs in some instance.
There was also a viral recorded audio purportedly by Nana Kufo Addo, president of Ghana, warning Ghanaians against the vaccine as well as revealing reasons why COVID-19 is plandemic instead of pandemic. According to the recording, which has not been verified if it was truly that of the president of Ghana, the plan for the COVID-19 was hatched by Americans, moved to a lab in Canada and smuggled to Wuhan, China lab from where it was released and later spread to the whole world. He quoted an article published in the Rockerfeller Foundation website as his source of information, stating that the big Pharma were the ones to benefit from the vaccines among others.
Additionally, there is the allegation of Judy Mikovits which also fueled the conspiracy theory. According to Sciencemag.com, in a video that exploded on social media recently, Mikovits, a biologists, claims the new coronavirus is being wrongly blamed for many deaths. She asserted that the virus—for instance, that it is “activated” by face masks.
Mikovits also accuses Anthony Fauci, head of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIAID, and a prominent member of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, of being responsible for the deaths of millions during the early years of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The video claims Mikovits was part of the team that discovered HIV, revolutionized HIV treatment, and was jailed without charges for her scientific positions.
Science fact-checked the video and stated the video is an excerpt from a forthcoming movie Plandemic, which promises to “expose the scientific and political elite who run the scam that is our global health system.” YouTube, Facebook, and other platforms have taken down the video because of inaccuracies. It keeps resurfacing, including on the Plandemic website, which, in “an effort to bypass the gatekeepers of free speech,” invites people to download the video and repost it.
Another conspiracy theorist is Shiva Ayyadurai. Ayyadurai, a scientist, who claims to have invented email at age 14, told POLITICO that he is deeply suspicious of Fauci, accusing him of having connections to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds various health care initiatives, including some to develop and distribute vaccines globally. It’s a common yet vague charge among Fauci’s detractors that appears to be based, in part, on a global vaccine project the Gates Foundation launched in 2010 in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the agency Fauci has run since 1984.. Shiva” as his fans call him, is a controversial scientist and long-shot Massachusetts Senate candidate who is pushing a variety of claims that range from dubious to medically disputed to outright false. Shiva as his fans call him, has argued that a strict vitamin regimen can prevent and treat the coronavirus — an unsubstantiated view at odds with the medical community and existing research. And he claims Fauci is a deep-state plant hellbent on “forced and mandatory vaccines” to support “Big Pharma” — a claim for which there is no evidence.
Also, DeAnna Lorraine, a former challenger for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s California House seat who has regularly retweeted QAnon conspiracies, said in an interview in Sciencemag.com: “What I’m suggesting is [Trump] just brings in other additional experts who aren’t just pro-vaccine, who don’t have anything to gain, financially or otherwise, from pushing vaccines on us.”
Above notwithstanding, Realnews reports that negative conspiracy theories against vaccine for coronavirus treatment led to a survey of how Americans feel about vaccine to be used to treat coronavirus. No survey has been done in Nigeria even though some people Realnews talked to reacted negatively.
Similarly, according to a poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, only about half of Americans say they would get a coronavirus vaccine if scientists succeed in making one that works.
Among Americans, who say they wouldn’t get vaccinated, 7 in 10 worry about safety, according to the poll.
Another poll by Yahoo News/ YouGov survey recently found that 28% of American adults believed potential vaccine to be used for Covid-19 is to implant microchips in billions.
Gates has, however, denied the conspiracy theories which accused him of wanting to use coronavirus vaccines to implant microchips in billions of people to monitor their movements.
Reacting to the Yahoo News/YouGov survey poll that found 28% of U.S. adults believe conspiracy theory that he planned to use a potential vaccine for Covid-19 to implant microchips in billions of people to monitor their movements, Gates said: “We need to get the truth out there.”
“I hope it’ll die down as people get the facts,” he told CBS during an interview recently, adding that he wants to bring the coronavirus pandemic to an end.
According to CNBC, there are no FDA-approved drugs or vaccines for the coronavirus, which has infected nearly 15 million people worldwide and killed at least 617,415 in more than six months, according to the data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The WHO says more than 100 vaccines are under development. About 23 vaccines are already in human trials in different countries.
Only time will tell who between conspiracy theorists, on one hand and Bill Gates and Big Pharma, on the other, is telling the truth.
