Why Is UK Research Focused on a Vaccine to Prevent a New Pandemic from “Disease X”?

Why Is UK Research Focused on a Vaccine to Prevent a New Pandemic from “Disease X”?

Meanwhile, distrust in public health experts has clearly grown as covid vaccine sales plunge.

There is quite a bit of evidence that people are suffering from long covid…memories.

That is to say that few have forgotten the society-crushing hysteria that spread throughout many countries.

So, it was with great trepidation I took a look at reports about United Kingdom researchers who are focused on developing a vaccine for “Disease X.”

On Monday, the term “Disease X” was trending on Twitter or X or whatever the social media platform is called these days. But it didn’t have anything to do with Twitter’s new name or what killed the platform’s previous bird logo.

No, the “X” after the word “Disease” was to emphasize that it’s not known which virus or other pathogen may be the next to jump from other animals to humans to become a threat and maybe even cause a pandemic.

This X marks one of the spots as to why the U.K. is establishing the Vaccine Development and Evaluation Centre (VDEC), situated at the U.K. Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) Porton Down campus in Wiltshire. As an August 7 announcement from the UKHSA indicated, “Working with national and international partners, VDEC’s skills and resources will enable the development of the vaccines we urgently need to save lives and mitigate the harm from vaccine preventable disease.

This includes threats from known and new pathogens, including viruses of pandemic potential.” In other words, this is an attempt to stack the VDEC against future emerging pathogens that may try to wreak havoc amongst humanity.

Why does the vaccine have to be the de facto solution for diseases? There are also options for early treatment development, the creation of novel disinfecting agents, and encouraging people to get fit and eat healthy.

British researchers apparently have over 100 different projects going. The pathogens they are looking at include tuberculosis and monkeypox, which we have covered extensively at Legal Insurrection.

…More than 200 scientists are working on upwards of 100 projects at the top secret laboratory in Porton Down, run by the UK Government.

These include surveillance and potential vaccine development for diseases including tuberculosis and monkeypox.

Top scientists working at the site however today confirmed they are readying the tools that would be needed if the H5N1 bird flu strain took off in humans.

The biggest ever outbreak of avian influenza is currently sweeping the world, sparking fears it could soon jump to humans.

While it is not known to transmit easily between humans, mutations to the virus that makes mammal-to-mammal transmission easier could change that, some experts fear.

Earlier this year British scientists also modeled worst-case scenarios under which the virus kills up to one in 20 people it infects, if it ever manages to take off in humans.

The researchers have already begun human testing of a vaccine for one of the hemorrhagic fevers.

One early success is the world’s first vaccine against Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever, a disease that’s spread by ticks and has a fatality rate of 30%.

Early-stage clinical trials have just started, with 24 volunteers expected to test the jab.

The disease is becoming more common in Europe as global temperatures rise and some travellers have returned to the UK with the infection.

“Climate Change” is part of the justification for this approach.

The combination of climate change, urbanisation and people living closer to animals – the source of many new diseases which transfer to people – means we’re facing a “rising tide of risk”, [Prof Dame Jenny Harries, chief executive of the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA)] says.

Just because vaccines are built doesn’t mean a new distrustful public will use them.

Germany’s BioNTech (22UAy.DE), Pfizer’s (PFE.N) partner on COVID-19 vaccines, cut its drug development budget for this year after quarterly revenues were hurt by a plunge in pandemic-related demand.

Second-quarter revenue dropped to 167.7 million euros ($184 million) from 3.2 billion euros a year earlier, as write-offs on Pfizer’s assets ate into profit share payments that BioNTech is entitled to receive from its U.S. partner.

The quarterly net loss was 190 million euros, down from a COVID-19-fuelled profit of 1.67 billion euros a year earlier.

“With some uncertainty on the revenue line, we are also carefully watching our spending by revisiting our cost base,” said finance chief Jens Holstein, adding that BioNTech’s ambition to become a multi-product oncology and infectious disease company was unchanged.

Who knows…maybe we will actually get lucky, and one of the novel vaccines will actually stop transmission. Maybe even without affecting heart enzymes.

Fixed that for people. It’s not a matter of “if” but simply a matter of “when” our Lords & Masters decide another round of educational lockdowns and forced vaccinations will be necessary to subdue the population.

The disease is becoming more common in Europe as global temperatures rise and some travellers have returned to the UK with the infection.

Scientifically correct version:
The disease is becoming more common in Europe as some travellers have returned to the UK with the infection.

Gee, sounds like they may have a guess that “Disease X” is being created somewhere. Probably just a good guess . . .

    Is this going to be another case of changing the definition of “vaccine” so that whatever they cook up will fit the new definition?

    Also, mortality-rate modeling always seems intentionally designed to induce fear and panic in the population and almost always greatly overstates the deadliness of these diseases, sometimes by an order of magnitude or more.

    I’m sure everyone noticed the author’s mention of travelers “returning” to the UK with the infection but don’t include illegals bringing diseases into the country. Their mention of climate change as a contributing factor casts doubt on the whole thing, too.

    Unlicensed labs in California (at least), bio-labs in Ukraine (at least), NIH funding gain of function research via Fauci (at least). Is this another case of truth just lagging behind so-called conspiracy theories by a few months?

Given the events of the last few years, and the actions of governments worldwide during that period of time, it is a reasonable conjecture that this is yet another attempt to enslave people. They are working on versions of a vaccine because they have already worked out the disease and how to spread it.

The mRNA shots were never tested for viral transmission. That was not part of the original emergency protocol. The scam that the drug manufacturers (and the “smart” politicians) used back then was to claim that the shots worked “against/inhibited COVID”. But this was the bait and switch – COVID is the disease (once you’re already infected with the virus). The virus is the Wuhan virus. COVID is the disease you get from the virus (the same way that HIV is the virus and AIDs is the disease). So to say that the shots combated “COVID” is to say that they had nothing to do with transmission of the virus but were aimed, only, at “reducing severity” of COVID (which was very explicit in the very, very beginning). But they knew that the average person/politician would not understand the difference between COVID and the Wuhan virus and would conflate the two and think that the shots inhibited transmission of the virus, itself.

Then, after Traitor Joe illegally slimed into the White House, the dictionaries changed the definition of “vaccine”, the CDC okayed the mRNA shots, and everyone started claiming,straight-out, that the shots stopped transmission.

Well, we do have another election coming up in a year that they want to steal.

I’m fairly certain that the end goal is population reduction as well as forcing a “new normal” in imposing Red China style governments where the citizenry has no rights but what the government says they may have at any given moment.

They’ll do this by increments, with disease scare after disease scare, each being a little more deadly than the last. Until someone messes up and accidently releases on that was never meant to roam free.

Government scientists working in secret for our benefit? Why the secrecy if they are working for us? It sounds like they are developing a weapon.

It is scientifically impossible to develop a vaccine for an unknown disease. To develop a vaccine, a small quantity of the offending virus is implanted into the populace. The immune system kicks into gear and the virus is brought to bear. There is no way to vaccinate against an unknown disease.

    But that’s why they have Gain of Function experiments. The scientists play the “what if . . . ” game with a natural virus and then attempt to develop a mRNA “vaccine” that will prevent the bastardized virus that results from their experimentation from killing us all. Lather, rinse, repeat until one “accidentally” escapes from their biowarfare laboratory and we have the next pandemic.

Not anymore. That’s the old, normal definition of “vaccine”. That’s been changed. Being bled by leeches qualifies as a “vaccine” these days … Pretty much everything qualifies under the “new” definition.

Wonderful, now tens of thousands can sicken and die from side effect “Y.”

Avian Flu? Don’t worry, Dr Fauci is on this.

“Why does the vaccine have to be the de facto solution for diseases?”

Because for whatever reason authorities wanted as many people as possible “vaccinated” with the Covid “vaccines” didn’t work, so they will try harder next time.

I can see the purpose of an efficacious vaccine for a disease that kills 30% of those it infects. A vaccine that’s 50% effective would save from death 15% of those who become infected.

But the IFR (infection fatality rate) of Covid was so low (somewhere in the range of 0.18 and 0.24 percent), that even a 100% effective vaccine would have only saved fewer than one quarter of 1% of those infected, because it can’t save more people than those who would have otherwise died. Factor in that the vast majority of Covid victims were those with co-morbidities (at least until the introduction of the vaxxes – since then, “vaccination” seems to have become a co-morbidity, increasing the chance of dying from Covid) who were readily identifiable, a campaign to vaccinate literally everyone was completely senseless. The IFR for some populations (e.g. children, youth, and healthy young adults) was so close to 0% that these people had, statistically speaking, zero chance of dying. No doctor should have ever recommended the vaccination of these populations. Yet many of our doctors, especially those in positions of authority, did exactly that. They have a lot of explaining to do.

And “at the time we didn’t have the (IFR) data” is not an excuse (although anyone with eyes to see knew that the afore-mentioned populations were not being affected by Covid), because they didn’t have any data to indicate the vaccines would actually help, either. Even if the vaccines were entirely safe, this gamble would have been completely inexcusable, because there was no medical reason to expose these populations to a safe, but (for them) useless product.
