Covid-19 was like an influenza: Bill Gates, who dramatically pushed for lockdowns of every possible Western region, later admitted in an interview by CNN host and Washington Post columnist Fareed Zakaria – having earned billions on the Covid-19 crisis and its lockdowns – that Covid-19 ended up being “like an influenza”.
The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated approximately the same. The WHO confirmed at the same time in 2022 that the Covid-19 PCR test was flawed and estimates of “positive cases” therefore meaningless.
The 2020 Covid-19 response may be an example of how billionaires dominate politics, NGOs and the field of medicine, writes historian of comparative religions and founder of The Herland Report, Hanne Nabintu Herland.
The fact that the richest among us made billions of dollars on the Covid-19 world tragedy while the world’s poor plunged into unimaginable poverty illustrates the deeply problematic effect of unregulated markets and the lack of scrutiny from governments.
Covid-19 was like an influenza: Microsoft founder and IT expert, billionaire Bill Gates has the past years gained a reputation of being a mainstream media health and medical guru although he lacks any medical education and relevant practice.
His enormous investment in global funds and leading NGOs such as the World Health Organization, to which he is the largest individual donor, illustrates the dramatic changes in spheres of influence.

- COVID-19: Systemic corruption in Medical Organizations
- Never before have there been massive excess deaths following vaccination
- Insouciance Destroyed America
- Majority of Americans now dying from Covid were Vaccinated and Boosted
The WHO was supposed to be accountable to its member states. Today, only 3 out of the 10 largest donors are nations, the rest are non-state actors and private donors, among them GAVI (The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization),according to the Times of India.
“The principle that he who pays the piper calls the tune holds true here. Countries large and small built the WHO through their contributions. There is general anxiety about unaccountable billionaires, but they welcome the investment as it’s something which otherwise they would have had to pay. Not just his investment in the WHO, but also in the various global funds and organizations. It is as if Gates has colonized the global health system,” said Dr. Mukesh Kapila, professor of global health and humanitarian affairs at the University of Manchester.
“Four health organizations, working closely together, spent almost $10 billion on responding to Covid across the world.
Covid-19 was like an influenza: But they lacked the scrutiny of governments,” wrote Politico: “Armed with expertise, bolstered by contacts at the highest levels of Western nations and empowered by well-grooved relationships with drug makers, the four organizations took on roles often played by governments — but without the accountability of governments. What followed was a steady, almost inexorable shift in power from the overwhelmed governments to a group of non-governmental organizations.“
Consequently, the 2020 Covid-19 shutdown, the masking of the entire population, the isolation, solitude, the lack of human contact, the economic and social shutdown which spiraled the West into recession and caused government borrowing to soar, transferred billions of dollars of government funds (buying vaccines, masks etc.) into private company accounts.
All this was done only because of “an influenza”?
A short summary of the regular seasonal influenza numbers demonstrates yearly losses of lives in the hundreds of thousands. Approximately 650 000 people die yearly from respiratory illnesses linked to regular influenzas, according to The US numbers for yearly deaths due to regular flus are, as CNN reported in 2018 around 80 000 dead yearly. Yet, no media pumped that story up back then.
The shutdown strategy, nonetheless, made the billionaires profit soar. In the span of just a few months in 2020, Bill Gates made 7.5 billion USD, Jeff Bezos $67.9 billion, Mark Zuckerberg’s $37.8 billion and Elon Musk’s $33.6 billion.
Covid-19 was like an influenza:America’s richest boosted their fortunes by $195 billion USD in President Biden’s first 100 days.
The total wealth of the billionaire class grew 54% from March 2020 to March 2021, reports CBS News. According to Forbes and Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos’ fortune soared to $178 billion from $113 billion. Bill Gates apparently ended up gaining 33 billion USD during Covid-19.
Lockdowns looted governments all over the world. The UK government alone spent 372 billion pounds tackling the Covid-19 situation.
In 2020, the government borrowed 300 billion pounds, the highest figure since records began in 1946, reports BBC. In 2021, an addition of another 200 billion was expected. This is but one example of how much the Covid-19 response cost the government of a specific nation state.
While the billionaires got immensely rich, the government debt soared. Much of the loans went to pay vaccines into the billionaire owned vaccine company system.
