Together, the bankers have formed a Covid Commission Planning Group (Covid CPG) to prepare the way for a National Covid Commission that can seize this once-in-a-century opportunity to help America--and the world--begin to heal.
What's a "Covid Commission" and whats the need for it ? Well let the good people who created the Commission explain it themselves
Now, as the availability of protective vaccines rapidly expands, daily death tolls in the U.S. decline, and devastated economies start to rebound, there's a growing risk that hard-won lessons from the last year will be lost amid the natural urge to put the crisis behind us and return to our pre-pandemic lives.
More than two dozen of the nation's most accomplished virologists, public health experts, clinicians, and former officials, joined by four of America's leading charitable foundations from across the political spectrum, are laying the groundwork to discover and preserve the lessons of the COVID-19 crisis.
Together, they have formed a Covid Commission Planning Group (Covid CPG) to prepare the way for a National Covid Commission that can seize this once-in-a-century opportunity to help America--and the world--begin to heal. It has debriefed more than 200 experts from a range of disciplines, outlined plans for nine essential task forces, and mapped out dozens of distinct lines of inquiry to ensure that the work of a future Covid Commission will be comprehensive.
So who is funding this shindig?
Stand Together is a Koch family funded foundation
LOCK STEP - A world of tighter top-down government control and more authoritarian leadership, with limited innovation and growing citizen pushback
CLEVER TOGETHER - A world in which highly coordinated and successful strategies emerge for addressing both urgent and entrenched worldwide issues
(Whitaker Chambers, 1901-1961, defected from the Communist underground. Today the Demonrats are Communists too. The GOP are Zionists.)
HACK ATTACK - An economically unstable and shock-prone world in which governments weaken, criminals thrive, and dangerous innovations emerge
SMART SCRAMBLE - An economically depressed world in which individuals and communities develop localized, makeshift solutions to a growing set of problems
The LOCK STEP scenario set for 2012 was eerily prescient.
In 2012, the pandemic that the world had been anticipating for years finally hit. Unlike 2009's H1N1, this new influenza strain-- originating from wild geese (an inside joke? a play on wild goose chase??) -- was extremely virulent and deadly.
Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults.
The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months
The report ends with these words: "Scenarios are a medium through which great change can be not just envisioned but also actualized. The more closely you read them, the more likely it becomes that you will recognize their important but less obvious implications to you, your work, and your community."
In 2018 Rockefeller funded Johns Hopkins brought out another "report" Technologies to Address Global Catastrophic Biological Risks. The purpose of this project is to raise awareness of powerful technological solutions that may get us closer to our collective objective of improved preparedness and response to pandemics and global catastrophic biological events.
