A la caza casa por casa: así frena Venezuela el coronavirus (y con médicos cubanos)


Por

Una de las estrategias para enfrentar el coronavirus en Venezuela es, además de la cuarentena, el trabajo de visita casa por casa que realizan los médicos para detectar los casos de contagio y tratarlos tempranamente. Muchos de ellos son cubanos, recorren los barrios cada día con sus batas blancas y tapabocas.

Ir a buscar los casos contagiados de coronavirus hasta dentro de los hogares. De eso trata el denominado “casa por casa”, uno de los métodos más eficaces que ha sido implementado en Venezuela, junto con la cuarentena, para enfrentar la pandemia de COVID-19.

La escena se repite todos los días desde que comenzó el despliegue de la estrategia contra el SARS-CoV-2 poco después de confirmados los primeros casos en el país, un viernes 13, el pasado marzo. Actualmente, solo en el estado de Miranda, centro-norte venezolano, al menos 1.500 médicos cubanos recorren los barrios con sus batas blancas, barbijos, listados a rellenar con datos de la gente visitada en sus casas.

No se trata de un recorrido azaroso. El despliegue se realiza en base a una base de datos recogida por la encuesta que realiza el gobierno a través de un sistema digital de almacenamiento de datos —llamado Plataforma patria—, donde quienes tienen síntomas avisan de su situación.

Así, en vez de tener una afluencia hacia los centros de salud, los médicos van hacia quienes pueden tener COVID-19.

“Vamos médicos, enfermeros, personal de laboratorio, en busca de las casas donde haya personas que hayan tenido contacto con personas del exterior y personas que tengan síntomas y hayan informado por la Plataforma patria”, explica Rafael Crespo Plasencia, un médico que llegó hace poco de Cuba para sumarse a la batalla contra el coronavirus.

El trabajo es también pedagógico: “Todavía hay personas que no tienen la percepción de riesgo, no se han informado muy bien a pesar de todas las redes informativas, radio, televisión. En el casa a casa se les informa que deben usar mascarilla, tapaboca, cómo deben lavarse las manos”.

El acatamiento a las normas es mayoritario, aunque, durante el recorrido por un barrio popular de Petare, en Caracas, Plasencia señala cómo alguna gente aún no utiliza el barbijo cuando está, por ejemplo, en la puerta de su casa. Es la falta de percepción de riesgo, insiste.

¿Cómo funciona el sistema de salud venezolano?

El Centro de Diagnóstico Integral (CDI) San Miguel Arcángel, o Cementerio de Petare, como se lo conoce en la zona, está situado sobre una avenida principal. A sus espaldas se encuentra uno de los tantos barrios de Petare que se eleva sobre un cerro por calles angostas, pasillos, escaleras, un laberinto para quien no conozca.

Los CDI pertenecen al nivel secundario de salud: en el primer nivel están los consultorios Barrios Adentro, y en el tercero los hospitales. Los CDI, de conjunto con los consultorios, son parte de la arquitectura de salud que se desarrolló durante la revolución bolivariana en conjunto con la misión médica cubana en el país.

Una de las claves de ese sistema se fundó en dos piezas centrales: la prevención y la participación de la comunidad, que son parte de las claves actuales en la estrategia de lucha contra el coronavirus.

El personal de salud que cada mañana sale a recorrer el barrio desde el CDI lo hace acompañado por una persona que pertenece a una de las formas de organización popular que existen en el barrio, como son consejos comunales, comunas, comités locales de abastecimiento y producción.

“Acompañamos a los médicos en los recorridos para llevarlos a las casas, siempre estamos, porque uno es el que conoce su comunidad, sabe los casos, sino vienen como barcos a la deriva”, explica Norma Josefina Urbina, parte del consejo comunal, que camina junto a Plasencia y el grupo de salud que recorre el barrio empinado.

Son la otra gran fortaleza junto a la base de datos digital con los casos de personas con coronavirus. Saben quienes viven en las casas, las personas de mayor riesgo, quienes presentaron síntomas y no lo notificaron. Guían a los médicos cubanos y venezolanos con conocimiento de la zona.

El objetivo es “detectar toda persona que tenga alguna sintomatología, ya sea respiratoria, y visitar y corroborar el estado de salud de los grupos más vulnerables, adultos mayores, mujeres, embarazadas, personas con enfermedades crónicas”, explica por su parte Carlos Luis Oliver Santana, médico cubano que lleva un año en el país.

En total ya visitaron 11.988 personas, de las cerca de 37.000 que viven en el radio de acción del CDI Cementerio de Petare. El trabajo es diario, constante.

En las casas conversan con la gente, realizan preguntas sobre posibles síntomas, contacto con gente que haya regresado del exterior o que haya tenido el virus y “si notamos algún síntoma o evidencia” entonces la persona es trasladada al CDI y “se le hace el test rápido que no le cuesta nada“.

Petare pertenece al estado Miranda, donde viven cerca de 3 millones de personas. Existen, para ese territorio, 60 CDI, de los cuales 38 son los CDI centinelas, de vigilancia 24 horas para enfrentar la pandemia: “Atienden todas las patologías, pero ingresan únicamente afecciones respiratorias que estén en relación con el coronavirus”, explica Ángel Sierra, vicejefe de asistencia médica en el estado.

El CDI Cementerio de Petare es uno de esos 38 centinelas y ha sido equipado para llevar adelante esa misión. En el ingreso se encuentra un médico protegido de pies a cabezas con un traje completo, guantes, mascarillas, protección para los ojos, que recibe a los pacientes que presentan sintomatologías.

A los pacientes se les realiza luego el test rápido para saber si son positivos al COVID-19. “No pasan a ninguna otra parte al menos que dé positivo o tenga la sintomatología del virus y no tenga test positivo, o tenga test positivo sin sintomatología”, explica Santana.

En caso de estar en una de esas situaciones ingresan a la sala de terapia intensiva donde se los aísla, se los pone en observación durante 14 días —tiempo de incubación del virus— y se les suministran los diferentes medicamentos, como el interferón, para fortalecer el sistema inmunológico.

Una vez que se les da el alta, “un médico va a visitarlo a su casa durante siete días para ver que no haya ninguna sintomatología”.

Sierra explica que tienen “todos los recursos, insumos, medicamentos y equipamiento para atender el coronavirus en todos los CDI”. En Miranda cuentan con un total de 2.198 miembros del equipo de salud cubano, de los cuales sale un promedio de 1.600 a pesquisar mientras el resto garantiza la atención.

“Se atiende de 49.000 a 52.000 pacientes diarios, detectándose con síntomas respiratorios 500 diarios, que se les da atención, se realiza los test y el despistaje”.

Coronavirus en Venezuela: un modelo de combate

El sistema casa por casa ha dado resultados en Venezuela. Se trata de un método que se apoya sobre lo que ya había sido edificado en materia de salud y de organización popular, reforzado con la llegada de insumos médicos de países como China, Rusia, Cuba, así como de organismos internacionales como la Cruz Roja y la Organización Panamericana de la Salud (OPS), brazo regional de la OMS.

Su implementación ha permitido una ofensiva sobre el coronavirus, una búsqueda en cada casa para detectarlo de manera temprana y evitar complicaciones en los pacientes, cortar las cadenas de transmisión, evitar su expansión —que puede ser muy veloz, como ha quedado demostrado en otros países, Italia y España por ejemplo—.

Es parte de las razones por las cuales la curva se mantiene aplanada en Venezuela. El papel jugado por la ayuda cubana es central, tanto como lo fue para construir parte del sistema de salud desde inicios de la revolución bolivariana. Allí están los médicos, cada día, en los cerros, con sus batas blancas, mascarillas, golpeando puerta tras puerta, preguntando, aconsejando, aportando en la batalla contra la pandemia.

Racism and “Dreams of Extermination” in Puerto Rico: U.S. Biological Warfare and the Legacy of Dr. Cornelius Rhoads

Timothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News – Who were the men and women behind the U.S. biological weapons programs during World War II? We know Imperial Japan had biological weapons, specifically bombs made of infected fleas they dropped on China and there were others who committed the same atrocities throughout history. The Japanese had madmen, but so did the Americans. What kind of madmen would be engaged in such dangerous weapons of war that can kill every man. woman and child on earth? In the U.S., one of the madmen can be traced back to the late 1920′s and his name was Dr. Cornelius P. Rhoads, a Harvard medical school graduate who was a victim of pulmonary tuberculosis while working at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital as an intern. Dr. Rhoads was a dedicated oncologist, pathologist and a hospital administrator who went on to teach and conduct research on disease processes at his alma mater. Then From 1929 until 1939, he worked at both the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research and shortly after, became a staff member at Rockefeller Hospital where he followed his other interests in hematology and poliomyelitis. By 1931, hematologist William B. Castle asked Dr. Rhoads to join him at the Rockefeller Anemia Commission where he worked for several months to participate in clinical research at Presbyterian Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico as part of the Rockefeller Foundation’s “sanitary commission” team to study pernicious iron deficiency anemia. Puerto Rico had pernicious iron deficiency anemia had an affection rate of 80% that was caused primarily by parasitic hookworms which also co-existed with another problem, the ‘tropical sprue’ which is described as “a malabsorption disease commonly found in tropical regions.”

https://i2.wp.com/silentcrownews.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/PRPR.jpg

As it is told, the story begins on November 10th, 1931, Dr. Rhoads attended a party hosted by a Puerto Rican co-worker’s house in Cidra, Puerto Rico, but after leaving the party he found his car vandalized with items in his car stolen, so he went to his office apparently angered by the situation and wrote a letter to Fred W. Stewart, whom he called Ferdie, a colleague from Boston that read:

Dear Ferdie:

The more I think about the Larry Smith appointment the more disgusted I get. Have you heard any reason advanced for it? It certainly is odd that a man out with the entire Boston group, fired by Wallach, and as far as I know, absolutely devoid of any scientific reputation should be given the place. There is something wrong somewhere with our point of view.

The situation is settled in Boston. Parker and Nye are to run the laboratory together and either Kenneth or MacMahon to be assistant; the chief to stay on. As far as I can see, the chances of my getting a job in the next ten years are absolutely nil. One is certainly not encouraged to make scientific advances, when it is a handicap rather than an aid to advancement. I can get a damn fine job here and am tempted to take it. It would be ideal except for the Porto Ricans. They are beyond doubt the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere. It makes you sick to inhabit the same island with them. They are even lower than Italians. What the island needs is not public health work but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population. It might then be livable. I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off 8 and transplanting cancer into several more. The latter has not resulted in any fatalities so far… The matter of consideration for the patients’ welfare plays no role here — in fact all physicians take delight in the abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects.

Do let me know if you hear any more news.

Sincerely, “Dusty”

By the end of December, a former lab technician by the name of Luis Baldoni resigned and later testified that he could have been in danger by exposing Dr. Rhoads. But a month later, around January 1932, Baldoni gave Pedro Albizu Campos, the president of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party the letter written by Dr. Rhoads which angered the Nationalist leader and many Puerto Ricans.  Albizu Campos sent copies of the letter to newspapers, embassies around the world, to the League of Nations, the Pan American Union and even the Vatican. Albizu Campos responded by writing his own letter stating that Dr. Rhoads was plotting to exterminate Puerto Ricans with cancer as part of American imperialism alongside U.S. installed governors in Puerto Rico who promoted labor emigration and birth control. According to author Truman R. Clark, who published ‘Puerto Rico and the United States, 1917-1933′ in 1975 wrote:

The Nationalists saw the Rhoads letter as proof that the U.S. government had a “policy to exterminate our people,” by keeping wages in the sugar industry so low that workers would starve, selling Puerto Ricans food “unfit for human consumption and the source of serious disease,” and having its governors emphasize emigration and birth control. The United States, said the Nationalists, had all but wiped out the American Indian and the Hawaiians with tuberculosis, starvation, and vaccination shots, but they did not believe even Americans would stoop so low as to inoculate people with cancer, until Dr. Rhoads admitted his part in the fiendish plot

By 1940, rather than face justice, Dr. Rhoads was selected to be the next director of Memorial Hospital for cancer care and research. By 1941 he was studying the use and effects of radiation to treat leukemia. Ironically, by 1950, Albizu Campos was arrested as a political prisoner and was used as a guinea pig to test human radiation experiments which led to his death in 1965.

However, during World War II, Dr. Rhoads became a colonel in the U.S. Army and was chief of medicine in the Chemical Weapons Division. He later went on to establish other chemical weapons laboratories in Utah, Maryland, and Panama participating in race-based secret experiments on African-Americans, Japanese-Americans and of course Puerto Ricans along with 60,000 U.S. soldiers who ended up with life-long aftereffects.

Dr. Rhoads went on to win the ‘Legion of Merit’ for combating poison gas and advancing the use of chemical warfare. The U.S. Army Medical Service published ‘The Medical Department of the United States Army in World War II., Volume 9’ on the original start of their chemical weapons program leading to biological weapons:

In July 1943, a Medical Division was established in the Chemical Warfare Service at Edgewood Arsenal, Md., under Dr. Cornelius P. Rhoads of New York. He was commissioned as a colonel in the Medical Corps and served as chief of the division until April 1945. The division was responsible for conducting research connected with prevention and treatment of chemical warfare casualties, for carrying out toxicological studies related to hazards in the production of chemical warfare agents, and for liaison with the surgeon general. By the end of 1943, new Chemical Warfare Service medical laboratories had been established at Camp Detrick, Md.; Dugway Proving Ground, Utah; and Camp Sibert, Ala. The Medical Division coordinated the work of all these laboratories and maintained liaison not only with the Surgeon General’s Office but also with other War Department agencies and with the Canadian and British chemical warfare research offices.

In January 1944, the Chemical Warfare Service was charged additionally with responsibility for all biological warfare defense projects. This assignment originated in October 1941, when the Secretary of War requested the National Academy of Sciences to appoint a civilian committee to review the field of biological warfare. The response was the formation of the so-called WBC (War Bureau of Consultants) Committee which included representatives of the Surgeon General’s Office as liaison members

And the U.S. biological weapons program was launched with help from Dr. Rhoads who was instrumental to the U.S. Military-Industrial Complex in developing and later establishing the foundation leading to the use of biological weapons. Dr. Cornelius P. Rhoads and his legacy lives on in Puerto Rico and around the world as one of the men who helped develop and produce some of the most dangerous biological (and chemical weapons) known to man. Dr. Cornelius P. Rhoads was a brilliant doctor and researcher, but there is no doubt that he was a racist and a psychopath with dreams of exterminating the Puerto Rican population.

Chemical and Biological Weapons: The US Government Waged a War Against its Own Citizens

Larry Romanoff

For the past 70 or so years, the US government waged a war against its own citizens, a reprehensible history of illegal, unethical and immoral experiments exposing countless US civilians to deadly procedures and pathogens.

According to a US Congressional investigation, by the late 1970s:

at least 500,000 people were used as subjects in radiation, biological and chemical experiments sponsored by the US Federal Government on its own citizens”.

Screenshot: Tampa Bay Times, October 7, 2005

The United States Government Accountability Office issued a report on September 28, 1994, which stated that between 1940 and 1974, the United States Department of Defense and other national security agencies studied hundreds of thousands of human subjects in tests and experiments involving hazardous substances.

“Many experiments that tested various biological agents on human subjects, referred to as Operation Whitecoat, were carried out at Fort Detrick, Maryland, in the 1950s. The human subjects originally consisted of volunteer enlisted men. However, after the enlisted men staged a sit-down strike to obtain more information about the dangers of the biological tests. No follow-ups of note were done, nor were records kept, of the participants. The US military later claimed it had contact information for only about 1,000 of the original participants. [The] United States biological defense program contains scores of divisions, departments, research groups, bio-intelligence and more, by no means all related to “defense” in any sense.”

From the document: American nuclear Guinea Pigs: Three decades of radiation experiments on U.S. citizens: Report prepared by the Subcommittee on Energy Conservation and Power, of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, U.S. House of Representatives, November, 1986: U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, 1986, 65-0190

“The human subjects were captive audiences or populations that experimenters might frighteningly have considered “expendable”: the elderly, prisoners, hospital patients suffering from terminal diseases or who might not have retained their full faculties for informed consent. … no evidence that informed consent was granted. … the government covered up the nature of the experiments and deceived the families of deceased victims as to what had transpired. … subjects received doses that approached or even exceed presently recognized limits for occupational radiation exposure. Doses were as great as 93 times the (maximum) body burden recognized”. The paper then proceeds: “Some of the more repugnant or bizarre of these experiments are summarized below.”

Few Americans seem aware of their own government’s programs of human experimentation, an unconscionable litany of atrocities performed by the CIA and military on an innocent and uninformed population, always without consent and most often with tragic results.

These included extensive programs of mind-control experiments, interrogation/torture experiments, deliberate infection with deadly or debilitating diseases, exposure to severe radioactivity and every manner of biological, bacteriological and toxic chemical pathogens. They encompassed brainwashing, torture, electroshock, nerve agents, drugs and exotic hypnosis and surgical experiments including lobotomies, and a wide range of pharmacological “research”, all conducted on innocent, uninformed and helpless civilian victims ranging from newborn babies to adults.

The substances used – the “tools of their trade” – included LSD, heroin, morphine, Benzedrine, marijuana, cocaine, PCP, mescaline, Metrazol, ether, nerve gases VX and Sarin, toxic chemicals such as zinc cadmium sulfide and sulfur dioxide, a variety of biological agents, sulfuric acid, scopolamine, mustard gas, radioactive isotopes, and various dioxins from Dow Chemical. They also included electroshock, synthetic estrogens, live cancer cells, animal sexual organs transplanted into humans, cow blood transfusions and much more. Deliberately-transmitted diseases included syphilis, gonorrhea, hepatitis, cancer, bubonic plague, beriberi, cholera, whooping cough, yellow fever, dengue fever, encephalitis and typhoid, Lyme Disease, hemorrhagic fever and much more.

Screenshot, New York Post

Experiments were performed on children, orphans, the sick and mentally disabled, prisoners who were given no choice in participation. Hospital patients were often told they were receiving medical treatment, but instead were used as subjects in deadly experiments.  (See Hornblum Allen M.; Newman Judith Lynn; Dober Gregory J. (2013). Against Their Will: The Secret History of Medical Experimentation on Children in Cold War America. Palgrave Macmillan. ISBN 978-0-230-34171-5)

We will never know the total number who died. If you don’t mind nightmares, do some research on the CIA’s MK-ULTRA program. Many of these experiments continued until the late 1990s and beyond, and many people claim – and provide evidence – that they still continue today.

Three days after his speech decrying Soviet tactics, Allen Dulles approved the beginning of MK-Ultra, a top-secret CIA program for “covert use of biological and chemical materials.” “American values” made for good rhetoric, but Dulles had far grander plans for the agency’s Cold War agenda.

MK-Ultra’s “mind control” experiments generally centered around behavior modification via electro-shock therapy, hypnosis, polygraphs, radiation, and a variety of drugs, toxins, and chemicals. These experiments relied on a range of test subjects: some who freely volunteered, some who volunteered under coercion, and some who had absolutely no idea they were involved in a sweeping defense research program. From mentally-impaired boys at a state school, to American soldiers, to “sexual psychopaths” at a state hospital, MK-Ultra’s programs often preyed on the most vulnerable members of society. The CIA considered prisoners especially good subjects, as they were willing to give consent in exchange for extra recreation time or commuted sentences. ( CIA’s MK-ULTRA program.)

These human research programs were funded by the US government and performed mostly through the CIA and the military, but with full cooperation from most major universities and hospitals. They were highly secretive, their existence undiscovered until after many years of operation. Faced with court orders to release the records, the CIA and military instead destroyed most of the documents, a few records surviving only by filing and communication errors, the available evidence covering only a minuscule portion of the violations and atrocities committed.

“From 1960 until 1971, Dr. Eugene Saenger, a radiologist at the University of Cincinnati, exposed poor and mostly black patients to whole body radiation. They were not asked to sign consent forms, nor were they told the Pentagon funded the study. Patients were exposed, in the period of one hour, to the equivalent of about 20,000 x-rays worth of radiation.”

Most of the patients died, but Dr. Saenger recently received a gold medal for “career achievements” from the Radiological Society of North America.

From the 1950s onward, mentally disabled children at the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, New York were intentionally infected with viral hepatitis by feeding them an extract made from the feces of infected patients. Saul Krugman of New York University promised the parents of mentally disabled children that their children would be enrolled into Willowbrook in exchange for signing a consent form for procedures that he claimed were “vaccinations.” In reality, the procedures involved deliberately infecting children with viral hepatitis.

Lauretta Bender: The Psychiatrist From Hell. Lauretta Bender was a neuropsychiatrist at Bellevue Hospital in the 1940s and early 1950s who pioneered electroshock therapy on small children who inevitably regressed into violent and catatonic states, most ending dead or in prison. Bender later expanded her treatments to include LSD and, in spite of her inhuman brutality, the NYT published a glowing obituary when she died – as it did for the many dozens of such persons.

Beginning around 1950, the US Army conducted at least 240 open-air bio-warfare attacks on American cities, releasing deadly nerve agents and bacteria from Alaska to Hawaii. The CIA released whooping cough bacteria from the sea near Tampa Bay, Florida, causing an epidemic that left tens of thousands of people extremely ill and killing many others. The US Navy simulated biological warfare attacks by spraying large quantities of a bacteria over San Francisco, in which many citizens died and countless contracted severe pneumonia-like illnesses. When the information was leaked, military sources insisted the bacteria were harmless, but countless thousands incurred serious urinary tract and respiratory infections, pneumonia and other illnesses, infections which were permanent: “To this day, these bacteria are a leading cause of death among the elderly in the San Francisco area”.

The US military conducted around 1,000 above-ground nuclear tests to determine the effects of radiation on a population. The Public Health Service was instructed to tell citizens downwind from nuclear bomb tests that the increases in cancers were due to neurosis, and Eisenhower ordered that women with radiation sickness, spontaneous abortions, hair loss, leukemia and brain cancer be told they were suffering from “housewife syndrome”.

A secret AEC document dated April 17, 1947, titled Medical Experiments in Humans stated:

“It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans that might have an adverse reaction on public opinion or result in legal suits. Documents covering such fieldwork should be classified Secret.”

An indication of the callous and obscene nature which has always pervaded the US government:

Kodak began receiving customer complaints about fogged film, the cause traced to packaging material – Indiana corn husks contaminated with radioactivity. The US government secretly agreed to provide Kodak with advance information on all future nuclear tests, including “expected distribution of radioactive material in order to anticipate local contamination”. The victims now tell us, “. . . the Government warned the photographic industry and provided maps and forecasts of potential contamination. Where were the warnings to parents of children in these areas? The Government protected rolls of film, but not the lives of our kids. Why did they do that when they had all the information about hot spots and fallout, and yet they did not warn the people of this country about the dangers inherent in radioactive fallout?” Their government didn’t tell them because they were the guinea pigs in the tests.

You can read about some of the more prominent cases here, here, here, and here. Also Robert McNamara’s infamous Project 100,000, Operation DEW, Operation LAC, Project SHAD, Project 112, Lyme Disease, Nerve gas and Dead Sheep at Dugway.

And it wasn’t only War on America

The accumulated evidence of the American use of biological weapons in China and North Korea is beyond dispute, but the US government has lied about it for 70 years.

It is also documented beyond dispute that the US conducted a decades-long campaign of biological warfare against little Cuba, including the distribution of hemorrhagic fever, and the swine flu that caused Cuba to kill all 500,000 pigs in the country. The Americans not only lied about this for 70 years but accused Cuba of being “a pariah state” with a biological warfare program. (1)

And not only Cuba. The US has deployed Chemical and Biological weapons on Canada, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Colombia, Vietnam, China, North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and more.

Nuove minacce contro il Venezuela bolivariano

Una taglia sul presidente Maduro e altri dirigenti chavisti

Nuove minacce contro il Venezuela bolivariano

La Colombia al fianco degli Stati uniti per destabilizzare il paese
8 aprile 2020

David Lifodi

Hand off Venezuela

Il momento sembra essere propizio. Nonostante imperversi la pandemia del Covid-19 e la situazione interna degli Stati uniti consigli a Trump di dedicarsi a come proteggere il proprio paese dal corona virus, la Casa bianca torna a guardare minacciosamente Caracas e lo fa con il sostegno del tradizionale e fidato alleato colombiano. Il presidente Duque non perde tempo, anche adesso, per provocare il Venezuela bolivariano sia alla frontiera sia sull’aiuto medico offerto da Miraflores a Palacio Nariño, sul quale la destra colombiana non ha trovato niente di meglio da fare che polemizzare.Ad ingolosire gli Stati uniti, aldilà della scusa di giustificare l’intervento in Venezuela con il pretesto di ristabilire una presunta democrazia, ora che anche la stessa credibilità del presidente de facto Guaidó sembra ai minimi termini anche sul versante anti-chavista, quelle ricchezze minerarie e petrolifere a cui mira l’oligarchia Usa, al pari di quella colombiana. Anche il narcotraffico, del quale il Venezuela è accusato, rappresenta un vero e proprio paradosso, soprattutto se a puntare il dito è il governo colombiano, visti i noti legami con i narcos e i paramilitari del duqueuribismo. Come è noto, lo stesso Duque, per raggiungere la presidenza del paese, ha potuto contare sui voti del narcotraffico.

Eppure, la presenza, ancora una volta, di truppe di mercenari al confine tra Colombia e Venezuela, fa capire che il chavismo è di nuovo sotto attacco. All’ennesimo progetto di transizione politica verso la democrazia proposto dal segretario di Stato Usa Mike Pompeo, il cancelliere venezuelano Jorge Arreaza ha risposto che la sovranità del Venezuela non è in discussione. “Le decisioni sul futuro del Venezuela si prendono a Caracas, non a Washington”, ha replicato Arreaza, il quale ha insistito sugli sforzi compiuti dal governo bolivariano nel corso del dialogo con l’opposizione nonostante i tentativi di sabotaggio degli emissari di Trump.

Dall’Unione europea, per ora, è arrivata invece una sollecitazione affinché governo e opposizione trovino un accordo, soprattutto adesso nel pieno dell’emergenza per il coronavirus. Tuttavia, anche dal vecchio continente non è giunta nemmeno una parola di biasimo per l’opera sotterranea di destabilizzazione che sta conducendo la Colombia, nonostante le poco credibili smentite di esercitazioni militari alla frontiera con il Venezuela da parte dell’esercito. Sui social network circola infatti un video che ritrae soldati colombiani scendere da un elicottero modello Black Hawk, ma si è trattato, secondo il Ministro della Difesa di Palacio Nariño, soltanto di manovre volte a stroncare il narcotraffico. Come mai, però, la Colombia non si occupi di dare la caccia ai narcos sul proprio territorio, invece di ammassare truppe alla frontiera, non è dato sapere.

Segnalato dalla senatrice colombiana di Unión Patriótica Aida Avella, il video rappresenta per la stessa sinistra colombiana una chiara provocazione nei confronti del Venezuela bolivariano. Il messaggio della senatrice, sotto al video, è chiaro e facilmente traducibile: «Se escala provocación y amenaza de agresión contra Venezuela; si hay Dignidad hay que levantar con fuerza la consigna de no a la guerra».

​Anche Trump ha inviato militari verso il Venezuela, lo scorso 1° aprile nell’ambito delle indagini che stanno conducendo gli Stati uniti sulle presunte accuse di narcotraffico rivolte e Maduro. La giustizia Usa ha addirittura messo una taglia di 15 milioni di dollari a coloro che siano in grado di fornire informazioni utili per poter legittimare l’arresto del presidente venezuelano. 10 milioni è la taglia che pende invece sul presidente dell’Assemblea nazionale costituente Diosdado Cabello e altri dirigenti bolivariani di primo piano. L’accusa di narcoterrorismo contro Maduro riguarderebbe il suo presunto piano per rifornire di cocaina il mercato statunitense, ma come ritenere veritiere queste voci quando si moltiplicano le dichiarazioni di trame per fare cadere il Venezuela bolivariano provenienti sia dalla Colombia sia dagli Stati uniti?

Si lavora, instancabilmente, a trovare un pretesto per imporre un cambio di governo in Venezuela: il rifiuto di Duque, denunciato dalla vicepresidente venezuelana Delcy Rodriguez direttamente all’ Organización Panamericana de la Salud, di accettare aiuti da parte di Caracas affinché la Colombia possa fronteggiare al meglio l’emergenza Covid-19 fa capire quanto siano caduti in basso gli antichavisti, disposti a tutto pur di cambiare l’inquilino di Miraflores.

Coronavirus Aid for Regime Change: Washington’s 13 Point Plan for Venezuela

Washington’s demands include expelling all Cuban personal, including doctors fighting COVID-19, and handing power over to the US-backed opposition.

The State Department released what it called its “democratic transition framework for Venezuela” yesterday; a 13-point plan for the removal of Nicolas Maduro and a radical overhaul of the country’s political system. The principal and most fundamental change Washington proposes is to “restore all powers to the National Assembly,” the one branch of government the right-wing pro-U.S. opposition coalition currently holds. This would place the entire country under the control of political groups that have not won a general election in Venezuela since 1993.

In point number three, the U.S. also demands that “all foreign security forces depart immediately.” Here, they are presumably not speaking about the U.S.-linked far-right Colombian death squads that have been known to penetrate the countries’ long and porous border, but about Cuban security advisors and medical personnel. The United States is currently waging a silent war against the Caribbean island, pressuring countries to refuse its medical aid during the coronavirus pandemic. U.S.-backed regimes in Brazil and Bolivia both expelled Cuban doctors from their countries upon coming to power, with Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro claiming that they were “costumed doctors” who were there to “create guerilla cells and indoctrinate people.” Brazil’s Health Ministry is now asking them to return even as its president continues to deny COVID-19 is a serious problem.

According to the State Department’s transition plan, all political offices in Venezuela will be liquidated and their positions filled with people chosen by the National Assembly – i.e. the Venezuelan opposition. This includes the National Electoral Council, the Supreme Court, the Council of State and the presidency. The National Assembly has been in limbo ever since 2017 when the Supreme Court ruled it was in contempt of court. During the previous elections, a few new members of the National Assembly were tried for vote buying, but the institution refused to recognize the Supreme Court, instead demanding all power be given to it, hence the three-year-long constitutional crisis. Only after the National Assembly has handpicked the new Council of State, who, in turn, choose the president, will the U.S. begin to lift sanctions, the State Department claims. However, it promises, the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Inter-American Development Bank (all institutions that have attempted to overthrow the socialist government) will be there to flood the country with foreign loans. The IMF recently refused an emergency COVID–19 loan to Venezuela unless Maduro stepped down.

The American proposal is unlikely to attract interest from Venezuela. “It’s a little hard to see how this is going to be convincing to the major players in the government,” said David Smilde, an anti-Maduro academic at the Washington Office for Latin America. Steve Ellner, a government-sympathetic professor at the Universidad de Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, suggested that the IMF’s actions would only “add to resentment against Washington” worldwide, also noting that many in the opposition coalition actually favor dialogue and working with the government during the pandemic.

The American proposal has not attracted interest from the Venezuelan government, President Maduro dismissing it outright. While Maduro holds very low approval ratings, he was democratically elected in 2013 and 2018 in some of the most internationally monitored elections in the world. Around 150 foreign observers, including three teams of seasoned election officials who produced reports, watched the 2018 vote. Among them was former Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, who said, “I do not have any doubt about the voting process. It is an advanced automatic voting system.” Former Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa agreed, praising its “impeccable” organization. In 2012 former president Jimmy Carter described Venezuela’s system as “the best in the world.”

Nevertheless, the U.S. government refused to recognize the results, imposing sanctions on the country. An American Special Rapporteur for the U.N., Alfred de Zayas, visited Venezuela and denounced them, accusing Trump of “crimes against humanity” and estimating that they were responsible for over 100,000 deaths. The international community has called for all U.S. sanctions to be halted.

After a series of secret negotiations, the U.S. government immediately backed self-declared president Juan Guaidó’s audacious coup attempts last year. Guaidó, head of the National Assembly, insisted that Maduro was illegitimate and he should be made president. While he was lauded in Washington, even receiving a standing ovation from both Republicans and Democrats at Trump’s state of the union address, his attempts were largely rejected by the Venezuelan public. The most recent poll showed him with a 10 percent approval rate and a 68.5 disapproval rating among his country folk. He was unceremoniously removed from his position as National Assembly chair by his own coalition in January.

The State Department’s most recent announcement is another in a long line of efforts by Washington to unseat the ruling socialist party – a chain of attempts going back to at least 2002. This was made explicit by special Venezuela representative Elliott Abrams: “The plan is not so much an effort to change Nicolas Maduro’s mind as it is to appeal to everyone else in Venezuela to change his mind for him,” he told a briefing. However, it is far from clear whether it will have this effect. Steve Ellner, a government-sympathetic professor at the Universidad de Oriente in Puerto La Cruz, suggested that recent actions would only “add to resentment against Washington” worldwide, also noting that many in the opposition coalition actually favor dialogue and working with the government during the pandemic. Like Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo’s previous calls for the military to rebel and overthrow Maduro, the State Department’s transition plan will likely be ignored inside Venezuela. With a global pandemic threatening to hit the country, Venezuelans likely have more important things to think about.

Coronavirus prepared at the bio-weapons laboratory in the US

The SARS-CoV-2 virus may have originated at the Fort Detrick lab, escaped into the wild due to lax safety precautions and infected military personnel at the base.

Politics A- A A+

US expert Dennis Etler shared his views with Eurasia Diary regarding the spread of Coronavirus-COVID-19 in the world as well as the role of the United States in the origination of this terrible disease.  

“Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson has raised the question as to whether the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) actually originated in the US, not China. His suggestion has raised hackles in the US media and government. Zhao, however, has not accused Washington of launching a bio-weapon attack against China, he has just raised some pertinent questions that need to be answered.

Using a contagious virus as a bio-weapon makes no strategic sense. It would and obviously did backfire if the intent was to derail China’s economy. In the long-run it will do the exact opposite, it will ruin the Western economies and strengthen China’s economy. The modelers in the “deep state” would surely understand this. The logic of launching a viral attack creating a pandemic thus doesn’t make much strategic sense.

But there is countervailing evidence that the virus itself had its origins outside of China;

1) In August 2019 the bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick was shut down because of safety concerns. One of the special agents being researched there was the SARS-CoV coronavirus. It seems that waste water from the plant was contaminated. So, there is a potential source for a SARS-CoV coronavirus (the COVID-19 virus is SARS-CoV-2) that may have escaped into the wild and infected military personnel.

2) Soon thereafter, in October 2019, US military personnel participated in the International Military Games held in Wuhan. It is feasible that some of the roughly 300 US military participating in the games may have been infected with the virus.

3) Genetic evidence shows that the ancestral form of the virus is not found in China but has been found in the USA and Europe.

4) Reports indicate that US military stationed in Afghanistan have had COVID-19-like symptoms but have not been tested for it, suggeting that early carriers of the virus may have mistaken it for the flu since young, healthy military personnel would most likely have very mild or asymptomatic cases of COVID-19 that went unrecognized. This would be particularly true before the disease spread into Wuhan and infected more vulnerable people who got severe symptoms.

5) The US has been very secretive about the outbreak and held classified White House meetings that medical specialists did not attend, because they lacked security clearances, suggesting the intelligence service attendees knew more than they have let on about the virus..

6) On Nov. 18, 2019 a conference on preparations for a coronavirus pandemic (EVENT 201) was held in New York attended by private and public figures. Nonetheless, Washington has feigned total ignorance of the potential for any impending pandemic.

There are other unsubstantiated claims that have circulated on-line, but that doesn’t take away from the evidence discussed above.

The conclusion seems to be that the SARS-CoV-2 virus may have originated at the Fort Detrick lab, escaped into the wild due to lax safety precautions and infected military personnel at the base. The virus then spread within the military, mutated into a number of haplotypes and was introduced to Wuhan during the International Military Games,

No conspiracy, but typical lax security and poor procedures by the US military that led to the virus being spread in Wuhan, leading to the local epidemic and the subsequent global pandemic.

The above evidence should not be dismissed out of hand, as it should be read and investigated by a neutral international team of forensic experts.”

Ininterrotti crimini di guerra in Yemen dalla criminale coalizione saudita, in un vergognoso silenzio globale

A cura di Enrico Vigna

 

Mentre la coscienza della solidarietà internazionale è attenuata e l’attenzione internazionale langue, sepolta dalla disinformazione o peggio dall’indifferenza, quelle organizzazioni che affermano di essere impegnate per i “diritti umani”, si rivelano estranee o distratte  circa l’eccidio sistematico commesso dalla coalizione americano-saudita e loro complici, contro civili, donne e bambini, sistematicamente e ferocemente da cinque anni, ogni giorno nello Yemen.

 

Dove sono i cantori del “dirittoumanesimo” globale, gli accusatori di “regimi e stati canaglia” indicati da USA e Israele, i praticanti le varie  “rivoluzioni colorate” in ogni dove ci sono  ingiustizie…tranne dove possono infastidire o contrastare interessi NATO o statunitensi?

Perché non levano le loro voci influenti “mediaticamente ed economicamente”, perché tacciono?

Nello Yemen da cinque si attua anni una guerra soprattutto sulla popolazione che vive in prima linea, sottoposta a attacchi indiscriminati che continuano senza sosta, senza alcuna segnale di discontinuità.

Una guerra che ha prodotto finora 3 milioni 650.000 sfollati, continuamente in crescita.

Una aggressione spietata dove non esiste la parola umanitario, dove il cosiddetto diritto internazionale umanitario che dovrebbe proteggere i civili, all’interno di un conflitto è quotidianamente calpestato nel silenzio, letale, internazionale.

 

 

 

Secondo molti testimoni e denunce, la coalizione saudita utilizza armamenti USA, prodotti e forniti dalla società Gazal Dynamics, che è fornitrice del sistema aeronautico americano, il quale ha in dotazione  bombe e missili come l’Mk 82, un missile a caduta libera leggera.

La coalizione guidata da Arabia Saudita e Stati Uniti non rispetta i minimi obblighi ai sensi delle leggi di guerra, e utilizza l’armamento statunitense in attacchi palesemente sproporzionati e indiscriminati, che provocano migliaia di vittime civili e danni a strutture civili nel paese arabo.

Dal marzo 2015, la coalizione saudita, ha iniziato questa guerra contro lo Yemen con l’obiettivo dichiarato di schiacciare il movimento Houthi di Ansarullah, che aveva preso il potere e cacciato il fedele alleato di Riyadh, l’ex presidente fuggitivo Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Ininterrotti crimini di guerra in Yemen dalla criminale coalizione saudita, in un vergognoso silenzio globale      
Anche secondo il quotidiano La Repubblica: “… Nello Yemen, negli ultimi mesi la crisi umanitaria si è ulteriormente aggravata, restando il punto del mondo dove si sta consumando la tragedia peggiore degli ultimi trent’anni. Un conflitto che, così come è avvenuto in Siria, colpisce soprattutto la popolazione civile, fin dall’inizio della guerra. Dallo scorso dicembre, infatti, nella sostanziale indifferenza della cosiddetta “comunità internazionale” e della maggior parte del sistema mediatico, qualcuno si è messo a calcolare che, di fatto, tre civili ogni giorno vengono uccisi, in media una vittima ogni 8 ore. ..Tre anni e oltre 600.000 persone yemenite morte e ferite, impedendo ai pazienti di recarsi all’estero per cure e bloccando l’ingresso delle medicine nel paese dilaniato dalla guerra…”.

Dopo gli innumerevoli bombardamenti sulle infrastrutture civili e gli ospedali, oggi sono oltre 2.400 i morti di colera e la crisi ha innescato quello che le Nazioni Unite hanno descritto come il peggior disastro umanitario del mondo.

Gli abitanti della provincia di Hodeidah hanno organizzato manifestazioni di protesta per le aggressioni criminali nel loro territorio contro la popolazione.
Una manifestazione di protesta è stata organizzata dagli  abitanti della provincia di Hodeidah per condannare l’ultimo crimine commesso dagli attacchi aerei sauditi contro i prigionieri nella provincia di Dhamar.
I partecipanti hanno lanciato slogan ed esposto  striscioni per denunciare i crimini del terribile massacro, che ha lasciato decine di prigionieri morti e feriti, che erano elencati nell’accordo di scambio firmato a Stoccolma.

La popolazione ha urlato il suo sdegno e ritiene le Nazioni Unite e la comunità internazionale pienamente responsabili degli atroci crimini commessi dall’aggressione contro il popolo yemenita.
Il 1° settembre l’aggressione aerea di USA-Arabia Saudita aveva lanciato sette incursioni su un edificio utilizzato per prigionieri di guerra a nord della provincia di Dhamar. Più di 150 persone sono state uccise e ferite nel massacro, mentre ancora continua il processo di recupero dei corpi delle vittime.      3 settembre 2019

USA: un documento del Federal Protective Service dice che i suprematisti bianchi vogliono usare il coronavirus come arma biologica

di Michele Metta

Quello che vi mostro e commento oggi è un documento che etichettare come sconvolgente è, assolutamente, non retorico.

Si tratta di un bollettino del Federal Protective Service, organo che fa capo al Dipartimento per la Sicurezza Nazionale degli Stati Uniti. Quel che emerge, è la volontà dei cosiddetti “suprematisti bianchi” di usare il coronavirus come mezzo per raggiungere i loro deliranti scopi.

In dettaglio, tra le loro mire si elencano quelle di sterminare le minoranze diffondendo tra queste il più possibile la malattia, vaporizzando il virus nei luoghi pubblici dove vivono in prevalenza comunità non di pelle bianca. Idem per i tasti degli ascensori, e le maniglie dei portoni. Operazioni dichiaratamente ispirate alle teorie di James Mason, sessantottenne pedofilo e guru neonazista USA, il quale predica la supposta necessità, tramite disordine, guerra civile, e morte, di un nuovo ordine mondiale basato sul dominio ariano.

È importantissimo sottolineare che il documento risale al febbraio di quest’anno; momento, cioè, in cui Trump negava la possibile diffusione della malattia nel proprio territorio nazionale. Coincidenza vuole che Mason sia un grande sostenitore proprio di Donald Trump.

Un documento, insomma, che fa sorgere non poche domande circa il momento che noi tutti stiamo vivendo.

A Man-Made Virus?

The Vatican says the coronavirus was created in a “laboratory in a powerful and wealthy country”

Cardinal and Archbishop of Colombo Malcolm Ranjith, is convinced that the Covid-19 coronavirus was created by the hands of man in the “laboratory of a powerful and wealthy country”. The Cardinal demanded that the United Nations initiate an investigation in this regard, and that those responsible are prosecuted on charges of genocide and are punished. This was reported by the correspondent of the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero.

“Some viruses,” he noted, “that we have been talking about in recent days, are the product of unscrupulous experiments. We must prohibit experiments of this type that lead to loss of lives and cause pain and suffering for all mankind… These types of research are not carried out by individuals in poor countries, but are carried out in the laboratories of rich states. Producing such things is a very serious crime against humanity. I pray to God that he helps to discover those who have sown this poison. I think that the United Nations should step up to understand how this incident arose and punish those responsible. Such research should be prohibited.”

Who created the virus?

The Vatican Cardinal does not explicitly name which country he accuses of creating the virus, but it is not difficult to guess who he means when referring to the laboratory of a “rich and powerful country”.

As Larry Romanoff, a columnist at the Canadian Global Research Center, said recently, the coronavirus was created in the United States. According to him, the virus definitely did not arise in the seafood market in Chinese Wuhan, where the epidemic broke out. He believes that he was most likely brought there from outside, and even named the location of the biological weapons laboratory.

“The only possible source of the coronavirus is the United States because only this country has all branches of the evolutionary tree of coronaviruses. The original source of the COVID-19 virus was the US military laboratory at Fort Detrick,” said Romanoff.

The expert’s findings are based on research by Japanese and Taiwanese epidemiologists. He recalled that last August, a wave of pneumonia took place in the United States, the source of which Americans said was vaping. Several cases of the disease were lethal. At that time, a doctor from Taiwan warned the United States that the cause of pneumonia could be coronavirus, but no one listened to him. Romanoff drew attention to the fact that just before the outbreak of the epidemic began, the United States somehow closed its main military bio-laboratory at Fort Detrick.

Laboratory of death

According to the media, in this laboratory they were experimenting with such dangerous microbes and toxins as Ebola virus, smallpox, anthrax, plague, as well as poison ricin. Epidemiological outbreaks were also investigated, and projects were carried out for government agencies, universities, and pharmaceutical companies. In April 2019, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases’ Department of Molecular and Translational Sciences issued a report on the results of studying coronavirus in bats, according to which… “a shortage of drugs capable of resisting pancoronavirus activity increases the vulnerability of public health systems to the highly pathogenic coronavirus pandemic.”

Even before the outbreak of the epidemic in China – August 31st, 2019 – the New York Times published a story about the development in the United States of a mysterious epidemic of a previously unknown lung disease, which at that time affected more than 200 people.

Cannabis, e-cigarettes, and vaping were suspected. However, those who did not smoke at all were also sick. And therefore the viral-bacterial nature of the severe disease of the lung system was not excluded. As of October 1st 2019 alone, 1,080 cases of the disease were recorded in 48 states and the Virgin Islands, including deaths.

He also drew attention to another mysterious episode related to the emergence of the virus. From October 18th to 27th last year, Wuhan hosted the next Military World Games, to which the Pentagon sent a delegation of several hundred people. In this regard, Global Research, with reference to Chinese social media publications, mentions five foreign athletes or other employees who were hospitalised in Wuhan with an infection unknown at the time. The subsequent explosive increase in morbidity generally corresponds to the standard incubation period of coronavirus established by doctors (about 14 days).

The Chinese representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian, said in this regard on his Twitter page that a dangerous coronavirus had been brought to Wuhan by military personnel from the United States of America.

According to him, the US is obliged to explain why the disease appeared in Wuhan. Lijian also wrote that information appeared from Robert Redfield’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, stating that there had been cases of people dying of influenza in the United States before the outbreak in Wuhan Province. However, after they died, they were found to have a dangerous coronavirus.

In the United States, this demarche by a representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China caused indignation. President Donald Trump accused China of spreading false information.

During a White House briefing, he said “China was spreading false information that our military gave them this [virus]. It is a lie. And instead of arguing, I have to name where it [the virus] came from. It really came from China,” said Trump. However, he did not say anything specific about the specific accusations made by the experts.

Meanwhile, the theory that the coronavirus could have been bred in bio-laboratories over the ocean, after which it deliberately or inadvertently went out of control, is shared by Russian experts.

For example, former member of the United Nations Biological Weapons Commission Igor Nikulin stated that “COVID-19 is assembled in three parts: bat coronavirus, snake coronavirus, and HIV component (human immunodeficiency virus) – glycoprotein protein. In nature, such a combination could not happen.”

As he told the Tsargrad news agency, there are more than enough grounds to suspect that the coronavirus is a US bio-weapon. Firstly, the time and place are too well chosen to be considered a mere coincidence. Currently it is the height of the trade war between China and the United States, and the American President Donald Trump said six months ago that if the Chinese don’t come to their senses, they will regret it. Why the outbreak happened in Wuhan, and not Beijing, Hong Kong, or Shanghai, is also roughly understandable. There’s a pro-American Maidan in Hong Kong. There are a lot of American missions in Shanghai, almost all American companies, and thousands of Americans work there, if not tens of thousands. And Beijing is the capital, there are too big control measures, there are a million cameras that record faces, explains the expert. They chose a place where control is easier, and the fact that there is an institute of virology is also good, it is possible to accuse the Chinese of arranging everything themselves, so successfully and during the New Year, noted Igor Nikulin.

“In addition, there was an American consulate in Wuhan,” he continued. “But they closed it, before the Chinese declared the epidemic,” said the expert. “So they knew about it beforehand? The information is also not in their favour,” noted Nikulin. “I.e., there are many details that show that it is not coincidental,” stressed the expert.

He also recalled that until 2000, the coronavirus had never been transmitted to humans. And since Americans adopted an ethnically specific biological weapons program in 1999, already 8 viruses out of 38 have moved from animals to humans.

How the vaccine was created

Reports from the United States that progress has been made in the development of a vaccine against the virus have also raised questions. How exactly the US managed to beat other countries in the development of a vaccine against coronavirus COVID-19 in a situation when it is impossible from the point of view of the technological process? Such a question was asked by the well-known journalist Sergey Kurginyan on the air of the talk show “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on the TV channel “Rossiya 1”.

“The Americans have officially declared that they will test the vaccine, right? How did they make it? Unlike many others, I believe Americans are a great technical nation… But other peoples aren’t idiots either. Neither Germans, nor Russians, nor Chinese. So, they were so ahead of the vaccine, so much so that it is impossible to get so technologically ahead,” said Kurginyan.

He noted that in this case the question arises as to how such an advance has occurred in technological terms? This is especially important in a situation where the virus was first recorded in China and when China was seemingly the first to start developing and testing the vaccine.

“You either skip certain stages of checks on rats and so on, or you don’t skip them, so then you started it when? These stages have a chronological sequence, they cannot be skipped! Are they disrupting the technology cycle or have they got it? And if they got it, it was like what? An antidote? So there is an end product?” continued Kurginyan.

As is known, today there are approximately 400 centers and laboratories in the United States in which biological weapons are being developed. And about 40 of them are located near the Russian borders.

Not long ago, the Russian Defense Ministry accused American scientists working in the Georgian Lugar medical center of experiments on people. The military released evidence that the United States, under the pretext of a “treatment center”, had established a secret biological weapons laboratory in Georgia – near the Russian borders. The experiments there have already killed 73 people.

This sensational information was first released by former Minister of State Security of Georgia Igor Giorgadze, who gave data on the death of 30 people who allegedly died in December 2015 during treatment in the laboratory against hepatitis C. In April and August 2016 there died respectively 30 and 13 people. And in the column “cause of death” it was written “unknown”, and an investigation into this was not carried out. The Russian Ministry of Defence distributed an official report on US military and biological activities on the Georgian territory. The information inside it confirms the Pentagon’s concept of contactless war. Its essence is the use of non-standard “ammunition”, which is now actively developed by Americans. Weapons can even be insects or animals infected with human-dangerous diseases.

If you let the genie out of the bottle…

The narrative of possible US involvement in the spread of the virus is described by many as a conspiracy theory. But that is what’s curious. With particular force, the epidemic broke out for some reason in two countries – China and Italy. At the same time, China is the main economic competitor of the United States on the world stage, and Italy is its most recalcitrant ally in Western Europe, where a “friend of Putin”, the leader of the Liga Nord, Matteo Salvini, is about to return to power again. Could that be a coincidence? Maybe, but it might not have been a coincidence too. Especially since the US has a great “track record” of trying to eliminate its political opponents with poisons and even biological weapons. Ranging from the numerous assassination attempts against Fidel Castro to the bizarre death of Venezuela’s popular leader Hugo Chávez.

But if this has already been done, why could the coronavirus not be the consequence of such American “experiments” no longer against the leader alone, but also a whole country? After all, they also did this before without hesitation – they bombed Serbia, and demolished Iraq and Libya.

They may, however, object by saying that the epidemic has now broken out in the United States itself. But it is known that if a genie is released from the bottle, even if accidentally, it starts to devour everyone indiscriminately, including those who released it.

Russian politician Franz Klintsevich said he was very cautious about all conspiracy theories related to coronavirus. However, in his opinion, most of the facts point to a laboratory in the US. “The conclusions are obvious: it is established that the virus is artificial and with a high degree of probability is linked with American soldiers,” said the politician.
