Is Bill Gates telling Sarah Gilbert what to say again?
Future pandemics could be "even more lethal than Covid-19" says Oxford Scientist Dame Sarah Gilbert, adding that "the lessons learned from the outbreak must not be squandered and the world should ensure it is prepared for the next viral onslaught."
"The truth is, the next one could be worse. It could be more contagious, or more lethal, or both," Sarah Gilbert said in the Richard Dimbleby Lecture, the BBC reported. The scientist adding ominously "This will not be the last time a virus threatens our lives and our livelihoods."
Professor Gilbert, who has yet to comment on the huge number of blood-clot deaths that her creation has reportedly caused, made the statement to the BBC at the weekend, parroting a warning given by her handler Bill Gates in January.
This is not the first time that the Oxford Scientist has been controlled by Bill Gates. Oxford University initially said any vaccine it developed would be open to qualified manufacturers to produce without paying royalties, and priced either at cost or at a small profit. However, as soon as Gates became involved in the project the focus changed. In August 2020, reportedly after pressure from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the university decided to change course. Gates reportedly 'took charge' of the project, pushing the university into entering an exclusive licensing agreement with the British-Swedish drugmaker AstraZeneca.
AstraZeneca had initially pledged to sell the vaccine as 'not-for-profit' only until it considered the pandemic was over. It also entered into several licensing agreements with large manufacturers, including the Serum Institute of India, which stands to make the company billions in the longer term. The company stated that it reserved the right to raise the price of the vaccine when it decides the Covid-19 pandemic is over – which will lead to a potential windfall as regular booster-shots are demanded.
