There is much confusion and disinformation regarding the nature of
the so-called Covid-19 'pandemic'.
The definition of a 'pandemic' is rarely mentioned by the governments
and the corporate media.
What confirms the existence of a 'pandemic' is not only the number of
people affected by Covid-19, but also reliable evidence of a disease
outbreak which is spreading over a wide geographic area,
countries or continents"
"A 'pandemic' is an epidemic that becomes very widespread and
affects a whole region, a continent, or the world" (Nature)
The above definition does
not in any way describe the alleged spread of SARS-CoV-2.
Was a Pandemic
I have investigated this matter extensively since January 2020 and
have come to the conclusion based on relevant definitions, the
history of the corona crisis as well as the official WHO "estimates"
of "Covid positive cases" that there never was a
At the outset of the corona crisis, the number of so-called
confirmed positive cases was abysmally low, starting with 83
positive cases outside China (6.4 billion people).
These ridiculously low
numbers were nonetheless used to justify the launching on January 30th
2020 of a Worldwide Public Health Emergency leading up six weeks
later to the official declaration of a Worldwide Pandemic on March
11, 2021 (44,279 Covid positive cases outside of China).
It was only in the wake of the official announcement of the
(March 11, 2020) that the number of Covid-19 cases went fly high.
And that had nothing to do with the alleged spread of the disease to
major regions of the World.

This tabulation of Covid positive cases was also used as a pretext
to justify the March 2020 "closure" of the global economy
(simultaneous "closure" of 190 national economies of member states
of the United Nations) allegedly with a view to saving lives.
And since December 2020, the alleged "Covid-19 'pandemic'" is used to
convince people Worldwide that the
Covid-19 vaccine (coupled with
the Vaccine Passport) is the "solution" to curbing the spread of the
In analyzing the evolution of the Covid-19 crisis, we must
distinguish between three important concepts:
The Outbreak constitutes:
"a sudden rise in the
incidence of a disease" and typically is confined to a localized
area or a specific group of people.
Should an outbreak become
more severe, and less localized, it may be characterized as an
If it broadens still further, and affects a
significant portion of the population, the disease may be
characterized as a 'pandemic'.
The Epidemic is defined
as a disease outbreak:
"affecting or tending
to affect a disproportionately large number of individuals
within a population, community, or region at the same time".
The Pandemic is broadly
defined as an extension of the epidemic:
"an outbreak of a
disease occurring over a wide geographic area (such as multiple
countries or continents) and typically affecting a significant
proportion of the population".
Based on the above
definitions, as well as data released by the Chinese health
authorities pertaining to positive cases, there was an Outbreak of
the Disease in Wuhan, Hubei Province in late December 2019.
A review of the data leading up to the official WHO decision to
declare a Pandemic on March 11, 2020 confirms the following:
No evidence of a
'pandemic', characterized by an outbreak of Covid-19 "over a
wide geographic area such as multiple countries or
published data of the WHO pertaining to the alleged spread
of Covid-19 do not confirm the existence of either an
epidemic nor a 'pandemic'.
Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC)
The first step towards building a fake consensus on the potential
spread of the disease was initiated on January 30, 2020 with the
decision by the WHO to declare a Public Health Emergency of
International Concern (PHEIC).
Under the 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR), the member
states of the WHO have,
"a legal duty to respond promptly to a PHEIC".
Without a shred of evidence, the
Director General of the WHO
declared the PHEIC, pointing to,
"a public health risk
to other States through the international spread of disease and
to potentially require a coordinated international response".
This warning pointed to
the possible occurrence of a 'pandemic'.
Health Emergency based on 83 Covid-19 Positive Cases Outside China
The January 30 2020 PHEIC intimates the possibility of a 'pandemic'.
an advisory published
on December 19, 2019 (barely two weeks before the Wuhan outbreak),
the WHO reconfirmed the definition of the PHEIC:
"a situation that is:
unusual or unexpected
implications for public health beyond the affected State's
immediate international action..."
The calling of a PHEIC
was a fraudulent decision on the part of the WHO Director General Dr
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
Because on the 30th
of January 2020 there were 83 Covid positive cases outside China
for a population of 6.4 billion people.
83 cases in 18 countries,
and only 7 of them had no history of travel in China. (see WHO,
January 30, 2020).
Points to Fraud
There was nothing "serious, sudden, unusual or unexpected" requiring
immediate international action.
These ridiculously low numbers which were not mentioned by the
media, did not prevent the launching of a Worldwide fear campaign.
In the week preceding this historic WHO decision. The PHEIC was the
object of "consultations" at the World Economic Forum (WEF), Davos

Dr. Tedros was present at Davos. Were these consultations
instrumental in influencing the WHO's historic decision to declare a
PHEIC on January 30th.

Gates Foundation, Big Pharma and the World Economic Forum (WEF).
(See Michel Chossudovsky,
E book, Chapter II)
Within the WHO
There are indications that the decision of the WHO Director General
to declare a PHEIC was taken on the sidelines of the World Economic
Forum (WEF) in Davos (January 21-24) overlapping with the Geneva
January 22 meeting of the
WHO emergency committee on 22 January,
According to the minutes
of this meeting (excerpt below), there were divisions within the
Emergency Committee regarding the calling of a PHEIC:
On 22 January, the members of the Emergency Committee expressed
divergent views on whether this event constitutes a PHEIC or not.
that time, the advice was that the event did not constitute a PHEIC,
but the Committee members agreed on the urgency of the situation and
suggested that the Committee should be reconvened in a matter of
days to examine the situation further.
"Divergent views" is
There was firm opposition
to the implementation of the PHEIC. 83 positive cases on January
30th "does not constitute a PHEIC".
I should mention that the first PHEIC goes back to 2009. It was
inaugurated by the WHO in relation to the H1N1 swine flu 'pandemic',
which turned out to be a fraud.
On January 29, 2020, the day preceding the launching of the PHEIC
(recorded by the WHO), there were 5 cases in the US, 3 in Canada, 4
in France, 4 in Germany.
There was no "scientific basis" to justify the launching of a
Worldwide public health emergency.
And bear in mind that the figures quoted above are based on Covid
positive estimates generated by the contentious and disputed PCR-RT

2020 - President Trump's Decision to Suspend Air Travel with China
And these these ridiculously low numbers of Covid positive cases
were then used by President Trump to
suspend air travel to China on
the following day (January 31, 2020).
... Trump announced
that he would deny entry to the US of both Chinese and foreign
nationals "who have traveled in China in the last 14 days". This
immediately triggered a crisis in air travel, transportation,
US-China trade relations as well as freight and shipping
...The five so-called "confirmed cases" in the US were
sufficient to "justify" President Trump's January 31st 2020
decision to suspend air travel to China while precipitating a
hate campaign against ethnic Chinese throughout the Western
Michel Chossudovsky, E-Book Chapter II
This historic January
31st 2020 decision paved the way towards the disruption of
international commodity trade as well as the imposition of Worldwide
restrictions on air travel.
It has also led to the bankruptcy of
major airlines, hotel chains and the tourist industry Worldwide.
And all they needed was 83 Covid Positive cases.
The next step of the Covid-19 saga unfolds on February 20, 2020.
20-21, 2020 - Dr. Tedros Intimates that the Pandemic is Imminent.
1073 Covid Positive Cases Outside China
At a press conference on Thursday the
20th of February
afternoon (CET Time) in a
briefing in Geneva, the WHO Director
General. Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that he was,
"concerned that the
chance to contain the coronavirus outbreak was 'closing'...
I believe the window of opportunity is still there, but that the
window is narrowing."
On the day of Dr. Tedros'
historic press conference (February 20, 2020) the recorded number of
confirmed cases outside China was 1073 out of which 621 were
passengers and crew on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship (stranded in
Japanese territorial waters).
On that same day, 57.9 % of the Worldwide Covid-19 "confirmed cases"
were from the Diamond Princess, hardly representative of a Worldwide
From a statistical point
of view, the WHO decision pointing to a potential "spread of the
virus Worldwide" did not make sense.
A quarantine had been imposed on the cruiser. See
passengers fell sick due to the confinement on the boat. All the
passengers and crew on the Diamond Princess undertook
the PCR test.
Without the Diamond
Princess data, the so-called confirmed cases worldwide outside China
on February 20th 2020 were of the order of 452, out of a population
of 6.4 billion. (See the graph below indicating International
Convenience - Diamond Princess).
Needless to say, this so-called data was instrumental to
spearheading the fear campaign and the collapse of financial markets
in the course of the month of February 2020.

number of countries affected does not tell the full story.

90 percent of cases are in just four countries, and two of those - China and the Republic of Korea
- have significantly declining
