Subject: Keep our Cash
 
Dear Sir,
In the Business News (“Worried shoppers shun cash” Fri May,29 2020) gave the impression that people are not using cash.
This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Banks have said a few years ago that they wanted to do away with cash, and have jumped on the Covid-19 situation to starve the public of cash, thereby disadvantaging the least well off in society.
In reality, it has been a case of the banks withholding cash via the ATMs, by not refilling them.
This in turn forces people to use their bank cards more, or face coming away from the shop without their goods.
Next they’ll be claiming that as people are not using cash, it can be done away with. Game set and match to the banksters.
Hegelian Dialectic works by creating a situation, and then using that situation to introduce policies that are wanted by the elite administrations of the world.
Yours disgustedly

================================================================
With all that I have read and heard, and taking a broad view, I would say that it is real news.
Lockdown came from our bought and paid for Professors and Civil Servants, Event201 (a gamed out pandemic from Oct 2019 see attachments and  https://www.weforum.org/press/2019/10/live-simulation-exercise-to-prepare-public-and-private-leaders-for-pandemic-response/  ) and John Hopkins University, the WHO, backed by Bill Gates, who has financed many laboratories and stands to make gains from any medical interventions or vaccines in his racketeering, if governments choose his products. He also has an interest in population reduction, and has been practising on Africans, and others until he was kicked out for devastating outcomes.
 
There are a great many coronaviruses around all the time, this includes the Common Cold along with the yearly flu outbreaks, and they have yet to produce any really viable vaccines, because with every person infected the virus will change itself, I believe it is called a shifting antigen virus.
Covid19 is unvaccinable according to a laboratory report, just as is HIV.
 From the beginning it has been yet another really nasty flu/pneumonia (possibly weaponised to affect certain people – they can tailor them to be DNA specific and other things). Those with compromised immune systems became seriously ill with it, and it seems those lacking in VitD3, C and Zinc, there may be other reason as well.
Really fit body builders were felled, and I wondered if they had been taking steroids which suppress the immune system.
Also those with darker skin colour can be deficient in VitD.
 
It was reported to have an HIV shell by one lab, making it hard to find like Aids.
My own illness, M.E., was reported by a lab in Reno, Nevada to be a zoonose virus in an HIV shell.
 
There have been other weaponised organisms such as Mycoplasma Fermentans Incognitus which hides itself in the body, and which made it’s technicians ill. It was also taken to Baghdad University under Sadam Hussein. Don’t know if they ever recovered it during the war, but our troops and America’s developed Gulf War Syndrome.

PRIVATE COOPERATION FOR PANDEMIC
PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE
A CALL TO ACTION
The next
severe
pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but
could
also t
rigger
major
cascading
economic and societal consequences
that could contribute greatly to global impact and
suffering. Efforts to prevent such consequences or respond to them as they unfold will require
unprecedented levels of collaboration between
governments, international organizations,
and
the
private
secto
r.
T
here have been important efforts to engage the private sector in epidemic and outbreak
preparedness at the national or regional level
.

there are major unmet global vulnerabilities
and

robust forms
of public
-The
Event 201
pandemic exercise
,
conducted on October 18, 2019,
vividly
demonstrated
a number of
these
important gaps in pandemic preparedness
as well as some of the elements of the solutions
between the public and private sectors that will be needed to fill them. T
he Johns Hopkins Center for
Health Security, World Economic Forum,
and
Bill
&
Melinda Gates Foundation jointly propose the
following
:
1.
Governments
, international organizations,
and
b
usinesses should plan now for how
essential
corporate capabilities
will
be
utilized
during a large
-
scale pandemic.
During a
severe pandemic,
p
ublic sector efforts to control the outbreak
are likely to
become overwhelmed.
But industry assets, if swiftly and appropriately deployed, could help to save lives and reduce
economic losses.
For instance, companies with operati
ons focused on logistics, social media, or
distribution systems
will
be needed
to enable
governments’ emergency response, risk
communications, and medical countermeasure distribution efforts during a pandemic.
This
includes working together to ensure that
strategic commodities are available and accessible for
public health response.
Contingency planning for a potential operational partnership between
government and business will be complex, with many legal and organizational details to be
addressed
.
G
overnm
ents should work now to identify the most critical areas of need and reach
out to industry players with the goal of finalizing agreements in advance of the next large
pandemic.
The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board
w
ould be well positioned to help moniter and contribute to the efforts that governments, international organizations and businesses
should take for pandemic preparedness and response.
2.
Industry
,
national governments
, and international organizations
should work
together
to
enhance
internationally held
stockpiles of
medical countermeasures (MCMs)
to enable
rapid and equitable distribu
tion
during a severe pandemic.
The World Health Organization
(
WHO
)
currently has an
influenza vaccine virtual stockpile
, with contracts in place with
pharmaceutical companies
that
have agreed to supply vaccines should WHO request them.
As
one possible approach, t
his virtual stockpile
model could be expanded to augment WHO’s ability
to di
stribute vaccines
and
therapeutics
to countries in the greatest need
during
a severe
pandemic.
This should also include any available experimental vaccine stockpiles for any WHO
R&D Blueprint pathogens to deploy in a clinical trial during outbreak
s
in coll
aboration with CEPI,
GAVI
,
and WHO.
Other approaches could involve regional stockpiles or bi
-
or multinational
agreements.
During a catastrophic outbreak, countries may be reluctant to part with scarce
medical resources. A
robust international
stockpile co
uld therefore help to ensure that low and
middle resource settings receive needed supplies regardless of whether they produce such
supplies domestically.
Countries with national supplies or domestic manufacturing capabilities
should commit to donating some
supply/product to this virtual stockpile.
Countries should
support this effort through the provision of additional funding.
3.
Countries
, international organizations,
and global transportation companies should work
together to maintain travel and trade during severe pandemics.
Travel and trade are
essential to the global economy as well as to national and even local economies, and they should
be maintained even in the
face of a pandemic.

The fear and uncertainty
experienced
during past outbreaks, even those limited to a national or regional level, have
sometimes led to
unjustified border measures
, the closure of customer

bans,
and the
cancellation of airline flights and international
shipping.
A par
ticularly fast
-
moving
and lethal pandemic could therefore result in political decisions to slow or stop
movement of
people and goods
, potentially harming economies already vulnerable in the face of an outbreak.
Ministries of Health
and other government age
ncies
should work together now with international
airlines and global shipping companies to develop realistic
response
scenarios and start a
contingency planning process with the goal of mitigating economic damage by maintaining key
travel and trade routes
during a
large
-
scale
pandemic. Supporting continued trade and travel in
such an extreme circumstance may require the provision of enhanced disease control measures
and
personal protective equipment
for transportation workers, government subsidies to suppo
rt
critical trade routes, and potentially liability protection in certain cases.

nternational

to address.FINANCE IN A PANDEMIC
Prepared
b
y Richard Bruns
There are several major sources of money that would become available to help respond to
a global catastrophic pandemic.
Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility
The
World Bank Group’s
Pandemic Emergency Financing Facility (PEF)
is a system
designed to respond to specific types of pandemics. It consists of a cash window and an
insurance window.
1
The cash window had about $50 million, all of which has been used to
support the response to
the ongoing Ebola epidemic in the Democratic Republic of the
Congo.
The insurance window is funded by 2 tranches of catastrophe bonds that pay out under
specified conditions. A coronavirus pandemic would trigger a payout of the Class B notes
after all of
the following conditions were met: It
kills at least 250 people
,
lasts at least 12
weeks
,
has at least 250 new cases in the past 12 weeks
,
has an increasing average number
of new cases over the past 12 weeks
,
and
kills at least 20 people in a second
country.
The
payout is based on the number of deaths and the geographic spread of the disease. A
coronavirus pandemic that killed more than 2,500 people would trigger a full payout of the
Class B notes, raising $95 million. It would also trigger a 16.67% p
ayout of the Class A
notes, raising an additional $37.5 million. A full payout of the Class A notes is triggered only
by an influenza pandemic.
World Bank’s IDA Crisis Response Window
IDA (International Development Association) is the part of the World
Bank that gives loans
(called “credits”) to poor countries for development. They meet every
3
years to raise
money and decide how it will be spent. These are called Replenishment meetings. The last
one, the 18th Replenishment
,
or IDA18, finished in 2016. I
t raised $75 billion to finance
projects from July 1, 2017
,
to June 30, 2020. The next meeting in this cycle is October 21
-
22, 2019, in Washington, DC.
Numbers in the Scenario
Several financial events and estimates are depicted in the Event 201 exercise. These
represent one possible scenario that could happen
in a catastrophic pandemic.
Amount
of Money Raised
In the scenario, there is a
large and successful mobilization of funds.
D
onor countries
are
convinced to
contribute roughly 40% of their annual aid budgets to CAPS response, for $80
billion, and
private charities spend down some of their
endowments to contribute an
additional $20 billion, for a total of roughly $100 billion in additional financing.
Cost of Supporting Health Systems
About $6 billion was disbursed by donors in response to the 2014
-
2016
West Africa
E
bola
epidemic.
10
At the point in the scenario where the $400 billion estimate
i
s made, it
i
s
assumed that CAPS would cause case counts
and expenses
in l
ow
-
and middle
-
income
countries
about
2
orders of magnitude higher than the
E
bola epidemic.
CAPS would, in many cases,
cause emergency spending that
would
quickly consume all of
countries’ annual healthcare budgets. They would then need a bailout to continue normal
function
ing
as well as provid
ing
minimal pandemic response.
L
ow
-
and middle
-
income
countries
typically spend
about 5% of GDP on health care, and in a crisis situation,
everything gets more expensive. The total GDP of
l
ow
-
and middle
-
income
countrie
(excluding China, India, and Russia) is about $14 trillion. If these countries require a bailout
of, on average, s
lightly more than half of their annual healthcare spending, this would be
$400 billion.
