Bill Gates Insists On Vaccines To Fight Covid-19
There has been a lot of tension all over the world in the past few months concerning the “dreaded and dreadful” COVID-19. Since its emergence, countries over the world now see the lockdown and social distancing as the new way of life.
When asked if the world will ever go back to what it used to be before Covid-19, Bill Gates, in a blog post says that can only happen “when we have an almost perfect drug to treat COVID-19, or when almost every person on the planet has been vaccinated against coronavirus.”
He argued that drugs can save lives but are not powerful enough to stop the outbreak and get the world back to normal hence the need for vaccines.
According to him, it will take anywhere from 9months to 2 years to come up with a vaccine as opposed to the 5 years it usually takes to create one. The reason being that it is a matter of urgency. In his own words:
“Humankind has never had a more urgent task than creating broad immunity for coronavirus. Realistically, if we’re going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine. We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this to happen as quickly as possible.”Bill Gates: The Vaccine Race, Explained: What you need to know about the COVID-19 vaccine
The summary of it all is that without a vaccine, life will never be as it was before. This still takes us back to ID2020. What else needs to be said?
This is coming after the Madagascan President claimed that a herbal drink both cures and prevents the coronavirus. It is said to have cured two people of COVID-19 and eased symptoms in others.
The herbal drink known as Covid-Organics was developed by the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research in conjunction with the National Pharmacology Research Centre. They both joined forces to conduct studies and set up a research protocol on this plant already known for its virtues against malaria.
This led to the development of Covid-Organics, an improved traditional remedy made up of artemisia and other endemic medicinal plants, such as ravintsara. This is according to the Africa Report.
The Malagasy Institute of Applied Research is a private organization that has researched the uses of Madagascar’s traditional medicines for more than 30 years.
However, WHO says there is no scientific backing to the claim. BBC reports:
“In response to the launch of Covid-Organics, the WHO said, in a statement sent to the BBC, that the global organisation did not recommend “self-medication with any medicines… as a prevention or cure for Covid-19”.
It reiterated earlier comments by WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that there were “no short-cuts” to finding effective mediation to fight coronarvirus.
International trials were under way to find an effective treatment, the WHO added.”
Food for thought
If Madagascar has found a natural herbal treatment, why is this not an option? So far, they have had a total of 132 confirmed cases, 91 recoveries, and no deaths recorded. That says a lot.
Is WHO saying that it doesn’t work? Are they saying that there are no natural remedies? Or are they just bent of getting a vaccine at all costs for reasons best known to them? Why must it be a vaccine and one that has to do with genetic codes and DNA?
Figure it out.
