CEPI was founded in Davos in 2017 by the governments of Norway and India, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Wellcome Trust and the World Economic Forum, with a view to galvanising the development of new vaccines against future epidemics.
This week’s summit acted very much as a fund-raiser to help reach the target $3.5billion CEPI says is required to help develop safe and effective vaccines within 100 days of an outbreak, so that the world can ‘face down the next Disease X’.
This is the goal outlined in the 100 Days Mission plan of the UK Government’s Pandemic Preparedness Partnership, June 2021 (discussed here), an objective set to be achieved within five years, and towards which on February 24 the Government pledged £160million.
It is said that through maintaining a library of prototype vaccines and other biological interventions, which can be rapidly adapted as Disease X begins to spread, nations will be able to shorten, but perhaps not do away with entirely, such brutal and expensive non-pharmaceutical interventions as lockdowns.
The driving ethos of this mission is speed; for CEPI, the pharmaceutical industry’s efforts in the face of Covid-19 – in spite of having been declared record-breaking in pace – were too slow.
‘We can go a lot faster,’ Oxford vaccine ‘inventor’ Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert told Sky News on day two of the summit.
This is something we should be extremely concerned about: it is this obsession with supersonic vaccine development and rollout that has allowed the Covid-19 vaccines to bypass the usual clinical safety protocols, and thus cause such obscene injury and fatality figures worldwide.
Indeed the 100 Days Mission plan explicitly recommends ‘transforming the approach to clinical trial regulation, shortening the time to authorise trials . . . [thus enabling them to] move as pandemics or epidemics do.’
Yet a global discussion on the ruinous human cost of such an unnecessarily hurried approach – as amply evidenced by the wholly corrupt agencies now responsible only for identifying, but not addressing, such collateral damage: VAERS (US), MHRA (UK), and EudraVigilance (Europe), for example – remains firmly off limits.
On the issue of reinventing the way current clinical trials are apparently so sluggishly and tediously performed, ex-Health Secretary Matt Hancock, at the Pandemic Preparedness Partnership Conference of April 20 2021, had this to say: ‘We’ve got to get quicker. And if trials aren’t working to shared standards across borders, we risk losing precious time – and precious ingenuity.
‘Here in the UK, the MHRA worked really hard to overcome some of the obstacles within the structure of clinical trials taking place in different jurisdictions, and that was one of the reasons we were able to license vaccines here in the UK faster than anywhere else because of the flexibility yet robustness shown by the MHRA.’
In essence then, and at least when it comes to vaccines, this new, provenly reckless ‘flexibility’ and ‘shared standards’ on clinical trials risks condemning humanity to remain at the mercy of the emerging post-Covid International Order’s medical experiments.
I use that term post-Covid International Order not for its sensationalist grandeur, but because it was used in March 2021’s Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, upon which both the domestic and geopolitical behaviour of the Johnson Government is based, particularly as it relates to public health.
On day two of this week’s summit CEPI announced an investment of up to £42million into University of Cambridge-based company DIOSynVax’s development of a universal vaccine that will ‘future-proof the world’ against all betacoronaviruses (one of four genera of coronaviruses).
What they failed to touch upon is that the pioneering delivery system currently on trial for this already ambitious vaccine uses a spring-powered jet of air to push it into the skin, not a needle.
Alongside the Australian Government’s recent investment to help fast-track the commercialisation of the Brisbane-based company Vaxxas’s Covid-19 vaccine patches (discussed here) – a company which receives millions in grants from the Gates Foundation – the future of experimental biological interventions looks dystopian to say the least.
Novel vaccine technologies, delivered by novel methods, approved using novel clinical trials regulations, at novel speed and causing novel numbers of innocent casualties: the new acceptable face of human augmentation – a long-term pursuit the Ministry of Defence have no problem in admitting will involve the use of novel vaccine and gene-therapy technologies (discussed here).
On March 4, three days before the CEPI summit, the media reported that the Government’s infamous scientific advisory group, Sage, have been ‘stood down’, signifying our rebirth into Boris Johnson’s new era of personal responsibility.
As with many such pandemic-related shenanigans of late, the timing is immaculate. CEPI have their own Scientific Advisory Committee, a supposedly independent body who will guide the realisation of the 100 Days Mission plan. And alongside the fact that the World Health Organisation likewise has its own Sage, and that the UK Government, as stated in the Integrated Review, are actively ‘seeking reform of the WHO, increasing our funding by 30 per cent to £340million over the next four years’, what we are likely witnessing is the formation of a single, global panel of ‘experts’ who will advise the emerging, single post-Covid Order, on the single most pressing threat to humanity of their choosing – Disease X, of course.
It comes as no surprise that it is Sage member and Chief Scientific Adviser to Government, Sir Patrick Vallance, who chairs the Pandemic Preparedness Partnership who drew up the 100 Days Mission plan.
Sage aren’t being stood down: they’re being promoted.
CEPI say that Covid-19 brought the world to its knees, and that we are now in a ‘race against time’ to avert another global pandemic disaster.
‘We are in a race against time,’ said Boris Johnson during his coronavirus statement of January 7 2021 as he eulogised the national effort to vaccinate all (but only) the most vulnerable of the nation.
‘We are in a race against time,’ he said 11 months later during his coronavirus statement of December 15 2021 as he threatened to lock down again if every single eligible adult. vulnerable or otherwise, didn’t get boosted in time for Christmas.
We’re in a race against time all right – a race to preserve our humanity in the face of the lightning speed at which ethical safeguards are being dissolved by such apprentice lunatics as the Prime Minister.
