Disease X: A Vaccine Program Waiting for a New Illness
Dr. McCullough with Frank Gaffney on Disease X, Vaccine Ideology, and the WHO
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
Many people all over the world would never want to hear the word “vaccine” again after the COVID-19 vaccine debacle. For most adults, the word never came up in conversation before 2020. Now we are besieged with fearful news report and a swift answer in a new vaccine.
I had a chance to sit down with senior journalist Frank Gaffney on Securing America and we reviewed the news story about laboratories working on Disease X. Disease X is a placeholder name that was adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO) in February 2018 on their shortlist of blueprint priority diseases to represent a hypothetical, unknown pathogen that could cause a future epidemic.
Tahir et al published in 2021 on Disease X: “Richard Hatchett, chief executive officer (CEO) of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), said about Disease X, “It might sound like science fiction, but Disease X is something we must prepare for.”2 In a list of diseases that the WHO considers high priority in terms of research and development, Disease X occupies a spot among diseases such as Ebola, Zika, and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).1 Unexpected outbreaks of infectious disease (Disease X) have repeatedly rocked the medical confidence and have taken the medical world by surprise.3
Some experts have even commented that COVID-19, caused by severe acute respiratory coronavirus virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), met the standards to be considered the first Disease X,4 while some authors have called Zika a Disease X.5 However, one unfortunate possibility is that COVID-19 and other recent pandemics might have been milder versions of what will eventually be the most prominent Disease X.
Disease X is supposed to be caused by a “pathogen X.” Such a pathogen is expected to be a zoonosis, most likely an RNA virus, emerging from an area where the right mix of risk factors highly promotes the risk for sustained transmission.6”
With new mRNA biotechnology ready at the computer screen for the next genetic code to come in, you can see how vaccine ideologists cannot wait for another pandemic to test out the rapid development, deployment, and reap copious sales of vaccine lots to governments.
Listen to the 8 minute interview where we hit on the key players in Disease X misadventure including Dr. Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance and the WHO. In my view it should all be shut down—more opportunity for harm than good. Money should be spent on other strategies including therapeutics.
