The COVID-19 Pandemic


In October 2019, a group of 15 businesspeople, government officials, and health experts gathered around a table in New York to plan out the global response to a worldwide outbreak of a never-before-seen, and completely theoretical, coronavirus pandemic.

The hypothetical virus at the center of the Event 201 simulation (a collaboration between the Johns Hopkins Center for Health and Security, the World Economic Forum, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) was called CAPS, which started with pigs in Brazil before spreading to farmers. The scenario was not unlike COVID-19 which reportedly began with animals before spreading to humans.

The key influencers around the table included health experts from the United Nations and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as several academics and representatives from private companies. In other words, they were the same types of people likely to plan the world’s response to a real-life coronavirus pandemic.

In the simulation, CAPS infected people across the globe within six months, and by the 18-month mark, it had killed 65 million people and triggered a global financial crisis. The time for effective preventative methods is now…

The number of known COVID-19 cases in the USA continues to grow rapidly. As of today, at least 7500 people in 47 states and Washington D.C. have tested positive for coronavirus, according to a New York Times database and at least 100 patients with the virus have died. As we write this number it continues to grow across the globe.

From national lockdowns to school shutdowns, authorities all over the world are creating a patchwork of measures to stop or slow down the coronavirus. Meanwhile, the global population are seeking their own measures to take their health and hygiene into their own hands. The issue is, from face masks to sanitisers there is not a single accessible product that is significantly alleviating the worried minds of the masses. Face masks aren’t a feasible measure because the virus is so small that it can penetrate the mask and enter the pathways. Their ‘breathability’ is what ultimately renders them unreliable. Hand sanitisers have anti-viral agents in them which serve a general hygiene purpose, but we now know that coronavirus does not infect people through their skin and only eliminates germs for as long as it takes for you to touch another surface, including the mouth and nose. No amount of traditional hand sanitiser is currently effective in preventing the virus from entering the mouth and nose.
