As we discover that more and more aspects of government advice and policy don't appear to be rooted in solid science, we've started to question from where this science originates. Our investigations have taken us on a somewhat circular journey, suggesting that an unexpectedly small group appear to be controlling our destiny. The common link between the control centres, architects and scientists that are informing global Covid policy appears to be the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Our founder, Rob Verkerk PhD expresses his concerns in a 20 minute video below. For those who prefer to read a transcript, you'll find it below the video.

Never have so few controlled the lives of so many
We’re calling on people here to start a process of critical thinking. Those of us living in democracies must start to question and challenge the approach our governments are taking during this Covid crisis. In our view we must particularly question the transparency of the science being used to underpin the decisions and measures taken.
That’s because there’s a lot happening that doesn’t fit with the science – at least what we think of as good, objective science.
We’re being told over and over that all decisions being made by governments that are driving lockdowns, social distancing and the development of drugs and vaccines for Covid-19 are being driven by science.
But it depends on how you define science – and how you define bias or corruption in the scientific process.
We're funded only by donations. Any amount is welcomed to help us continue our work
Good science – that’s always been central to our mission at the Alliance for Natural Health – is all about how you evaluate evidence from objective observation, measurement and experimentation to better understand the world around us. That science can then be applied in many different ways. Sometimes that might be to help businesses reap just rewards for the goods and services they provide. But when it comes to science around Covid, I think most of us would expect the science to be used to maximise benefits – not for special interests – but for the public.
During this Covid pandemic – we’re seeing many examples of decisions being made ostensibly on the basis of science that don’t appear to be in the public interest. That also don’t appear either objective or independent of vested interests.
There’s a concern that billionaires – including Bill Gates but also some 200 others that have contributed to Gates and Warren Buffet’s Giving Pledge that was kicked off in 2010 – now pose a threat to transparent science and even democracy – all under the shroud of what looks like philanthropy.
The decision to initiate a global lockdown because Covid-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization and now, the obsessive reliance on R numbers to determine how lockdowns should be eased – that we wrote about last week – are just 2 examples of decisions that are difficult to argue were made on the basis of robust science.
Another screaming example of not being informed by science is the lack of emphasis being placed by governments on understanding the natural history of the disease – what would have happened if we’d not locked down?
Why do we hear so little about what’s going on Taiwan? As of today there are 440 cases and 7 deaths reported. Remember this for later: Taiwan’s not a member of the World Health Organization.
Or South Korea – with its extensive test, track and trace system and a case fatality rate of just 0.6% - about 5 times less than the case fatality rate being bandied about the World Health Organization. Or Japan with less than 700 reported deaths so far. None of these 3 countries went into full lockdowns – yet over this side of the world we hear very little about how they achieved their successes. Social customs and good IT clearly both helped.
When the decision to go into near complete global lockdown was made in March, the best science looking at the effect of lockdowns for infections caused by respiratory viruses already showed us they don’t really work.
The biggest review of studies trying to understand the effects of social distancing on interrupting or reducing the spread of respiratory viruses – by Cochrane – including 67 randomised controlled trials or observational studies – all the available, relevant evidence – said there’s not much benefit. Yet we rushed ahead – the public believing it was the right thing – and our only option.
What about the idea of letting healthy people get on with their lives and just shielding the groups we know are vulnerable? Or offering support or advice to help people improve their immune function to reduce the severity of disease?
No – still now, advice like this is being censored online because it doesn’t fit with the mainstream narrative.
Looking at the emerging data on strong correlations between vitamin D deficiency and severe symptoms, why isn’t everyone being recommended to take the high doses of vitamin D required to normalise or even optimise circulating levels.
Why is youtube banning videos that discuss the importance of vitamin C which is proven to be one of the most effective solutions for sepsis when delivered intravenously – especially given we know sepsis is one of the reasons critically ill people can die with Covid? The same applies to improving zinc status.
The longer you look for reasons why things are happening the way they are – the more you realise that the narrative is being controlled by a small number of people and organisations, as well as researchers and institutions – all funded from the same, so-called ‘independent’ sources.
Independence here becomes something of a moot point. Are we talking independent from governments, or are we talking about independence from say massive funding sources like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation?
Let’s now look at some of the main players:
The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB) is the control centre. It’s fully attached to the World Health Organization – but it’s absolutely not independent of the WHO. Bill and Melinda Gates are presently the largest funder of the WHO and the Gates Foundation has become its largest funder as Trump has presently frozen the $400 million due from the US this year – it being historically the biggest donor. The UK is next in line.
Big names like Dr Anthony Fauci from the US Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases that’s controlling the US response is on the board. As is Dr Chris Elias from the Gates Foundation and Jeremy Farrar from the Wellcome Trust – two organisations that have been at the forefront of pushing for vaccine solutions to health challenges.
It was of course Fauci who famously predicted in January 2017 there’d be a surprise outbreak during Trump’s administration. How could he be so sure?
[Fauci stated: “If there’s one message that I want to leave with you today based on my experience, it is that there is no question that there will be a challenge to the coming administration in the arena of infectious diseases.”]
Anyway, back to GPMB. The GPMB is, as I said earlier, like the conductor of the orchestra. It coordinates political leaders and policy makers – it’s the reason that most countries in the world have reacted in the same way with lockdowns. They parrot the narrative in much the same way too.
[Video: European Commission hosts Coronavirus Global Response International pledging event]
Next in line we have the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations or CEPI. It describes itself as a public-private partnership and a roundtable of independent institutions in seeing vaccines deployed in the event of a global pandemic – the WHO’s disease ‘X’ scenario – a pandemic disease caused by a pathogen for which there is no pre-existing therapeutic agent or vaccine.
Covid-19 fits the bill for a ‘disease X’ – perfectly timed some might say.
Video: WHO discusses Disease X
The Gates Foundation is one of CEPI’s founding backers.
This is what CEPI’s head Richard Hatchett had to say about it: “We can be sure that another epidemic is on the horizon. It is not a case of if, but when. We need to be prepared. We need to invest in platform technologies that can be used to quickly respond to the emergence of a pathogen with epidemic potential.”
When CEPI was launched in 2017, Bill Gates was interviewed by London’s Financial Times. He said he hoped to "cut the time between identifying and deploying a vaccine from as many as 10 years today to less than 12 months" “If we can’t get it under a year we’d be disappointed.”
Why so quick? To save lives and get the global economy back into action? Or because they know these new-to-human coronaviruses – like SARS and MERS before it – have a habit of petering out naturally – just after interacting with the human immune system. And without a vaccine.
Head of CEPI, Richard Hatchett – wrote this in the New England Journal of Medicine published on 30 March 2020:
"Vaccines for the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Ebola, and Zika did not follow a similar path. The SARS and Zika epidemics ended before vaccine development was complete, and federal funding agencies reallocated funds that had been committed to vaccine development, leaving manufacturers with financial losses and setting back other vaccine-development programs."
Then you have the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation itself.
It was 2010 when Gates pledged a $10 billion spend on vaccines. That 10 years is up and like any businessman, he probably wants to see results on his 'return on investment'.
We might then ask – what forum’s do these individuals and organisations use to decide our fate? Well they do have meetings. The last one we know about was called Event 201 – in October 2019 just around the time SARS-CoV2 started transmitting human to human.
Where did it get its name or at least it’s number: 201? They decided that there’ve been a growing number of epidemics in recent years – totally around 200. So the next big one would be number 201.
During the meeting they ran a simulation – believe it or not – for a coronavirus. One that would take off in South America, not China. One that jumped to humans from pigs – not from an as yet unidentified source as in the real thing.
The event was hosted at Johns Hopkins in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum. Johns Hopkins unsurprisingly is also funded by the Gates Foundation. There are 189 grants from the Gates Foundation listed on the Gates Foundation website.
And Johns Hopkins has become a major reporting portal for the pandemic.
In fact – in case anyone might think the whole thing was something of a war game to prepare for the Covid-19 – Johns Hopkins has issued a statement:
"In October 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security hosted a pandemic tabletop exercise called Event 201 with partners, the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Recently, the Center for Health Security has received questions about whether that pandemic exercise predicted the current novel coronavirus outbreak in China. To be clear, the Center for Health Security and partners did not make a prediction during our tabletop exercise. For the scenario, we modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction. Instead, the exercise served to highlight preparedness and response challenges that would likely arise in a very severe pandemic. We are not now predicting that the nCoV-2019 outbreak will kill 65 million people. Although our tabletop exercise included a mock novel coronavirus, the inputs we used for modeling the potential impact of that fictional virus are not similar to nCoV-2019."
As a collator of data from the WHO, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and others – the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center has become one of the key places that helps the media to fan the flames of fear around the pandemic and its impact – and the public becomes a passive and incompletely informed recipient of the information.
They compare the death rates with confirmed cases, which often gives you typically a figure of between 5 and 15% case rate fatality. But remember – you get these big percentages only when you use confirmed cases as your denominator. If we knew the real denominator and the number of people in each country and region who’ve never reported symptoms because they were so mild as well as those who’d never had any symptoms – the asymptomatic – and there are some suggestions this number might be large - we would have a very different figure. And that would dramatically dilute the public view of the deadliness of this pandemic.
But if you’re in the business of trying to develop a vaccine in record time, before the thing peters out because of its interactions with lots of healthy humans, maybe that’s not in your interest.
Among Event 201’s recommendations in October 2019, just before the virus was detected in Wuhan was
“Governments should provide more resources and support for the development and surge manufacturing of vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics that will be needed during a severe pandemic.”
That's exactly what was parroted at the EU's global funding pledging event so it's a reasonable assumption the parties at Event 201 created the narrative.
The timing couldn’t have been any better.
It’s clear that Gates is all over this current agenda – as some might say – he’s done well for a software developer – especially now that he’s a key player on the mainstage of global healthcare. Because he’s been prosecuted in the late 90s for breach of anti-trust laws with Microsoft by illegally maintaining a monopoly that blocked competition.
Therefore you have to consider the possibility that the Gates Foundation's motives might not be entirely philanthropic. Having said that – a Google search of the “philanthropic Gates” brings up nearly 5,000 hits – so it’s clear someone’s working the PR rather well in a backroom.
The fact that cannot be denied is that there is a small cluster of people and organisations – most being funded by the Gates Foundation - that are making very important decisions that not only affect us and our future – but likely also our children’s futures. That shouldn’t sit easily with any of us – and you don’t need to be a conspiracy theorist to be concerned about this. Being a historian or just someone concerned with social justice is enough.
We need to be asking how independent is independent? What do we mean by independence – independent of who? We need to ask, who’s set to gain, who’s set to lose, and who’s set to pay for all of this?
We need to ask - how democratised is the science? We need to ask why are doctors like Drs Kory and Marik’s Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care Working Group, whose protocol is saving 90% or more of patients in critical care facilities in the US compared with around 50% with standard care, being stonewalled by the National Institutes of Health?
With all the resources being thrown at vaccines – is there going to be the appetite to systematically and accurately study the extent of naturally-acquired herd immunity? What happens if such studies were to find a vaccine isn’t then needed – can we trust the transparency of findings of this kind given the huge pressure coming from those vested in vaccine technologies?
What if we were to find that well over half the global population has already been exposed to the virus – most people having barely noticed the infection? Would there be a mea culpa from those in charge, recognition that they perhaps over-reacted, that all this control and planned surveillance of the population wasn’t required anymore.
Or are we already in too deep to be able to climb out?
Are most of us so blinded by fear about the virus that we’re not able to properly understand the way in which enforced surveillance coupled with artificial intelligence could destroy most of the things we value as independent, free-thinking humans. Keep an eye on the likes of Eric Schmidt in New York who’s fast-tracking a socially distanced, AI future for New Yorkers – and that’s just the starter.
For us, transparency is the only way forward. We need to demand it on all fronts – whether it’s giving us the data that allows us to appreciate the real risks of the virus, who’s expected to pay for all of this – or what the data are to ensure the most fast-tracked vaccines in history are actually necessary and if they are deemed so, that they’re safe before they’re unleashed on citizens around the world.
Find out more about our vaccine transparency manifesto, created with the British Society for Ecological medicine, in the links below.
And finally – here’s our plea – let’s push our governments to ensure transparency every step of the way. Currently we’re a long way off – and to get there we need people power and political pressure.

I really love this video. Thank you so much for doing and sharing your research. I just hope the sleepy people of our country watch and pay attention before our futures are destroyed. Anyone reading this, please meditate on the free, healthy, abundant future we want to see. Its really important to be informed but its also important to know that we create our own reality and if we believe we are all going to be vaxed and controlled then that is what will happen. We need to believe in a better future and see this current situation as a good thing that will create positive change.
14 May 2020 at 11:43 pm
DR. Rob, this shocked me! Thank you for once again doing the research and providing the sources so that others can check for themselves. This can't be a coincidence and the deaths of all that failed to survive this manufactured crisis should bring condemnation and prosecution! I wonder how long this will be permitted to survive. In any event I've forwarded it to contacts around the world and hope that it goes viral, pun intended!
15 May 2020 at 8:02 am
Excellent work Rob.
No one can refute the sense of your arguments.
15 May 2020 at 8:10 am
Only read your opening letter now.. Shall go through the full content later today in your latest email. Positive to see realistic words being used as they need to be now more than ever, these few people making such a mess of our lives, count on the normal politeness of other human beings and that's one part of their modus operandi. in controlling others..
My own research has been and is bearing out the incredible amount of control by the few in the World of this Health area - in all its entirety of paperwork and people at high levels - manipulation, food, chemicals so much. This is the era of corruption and foul play, all for $$$ & power/control, no empathy, NO CONSCIENCE, and other Sociopaths traits! this is not about charity for human beings as some prominent media exposed public personas state, NOT AT ALL..
Links that we NEED to let appropriate organisations including Government bodies, do put them on your site Rob/team.
Only read a few days ago that Gates was behind placing his choice of CEO and others into the chair(s) of The Cochrane Foundation, removing that eminent humanitarian who started the Foundation - all for control and the GATES AGENDA, his links with the Ethiopian WHO frontman and so much more, and all hidden behind a Charity FOUNDATION - Bill & Melinda Gates and fellow camoers Foundation.
Can you answer - does R Murdoch own a Vaccine company?
Much respect and regard for you & your team.
15 May 2020 at 10:47 am
Thankyou for such an enlightening and balanced view. We need more to question the narrative especially when access to alternative sources are being censored.
15 May 2020 at 10:47 am
Before I leave a comment, could I please ask you a question about the background music used in the video I have just watched. I always use my headphones when watching videos and on this occasion it was not intrusive at the beginning, but as the time progressed I found that the music, together with some clicks became louder and began to intrude into what you were saying, at one point the music seemed to travel from the right ear through my head to the left ear. At that point I abandoned the headphones and watched the rest without them. Can you explain this phenomenon, or are the watchers being infiltrated by some kind of deliberate interference?
15 May 2020 at 9:49 pm
Got to admit Pauline, I also removed my headphones towards the end, some sort of hypnotic clicking. A little distracting. Still video content was important!

Hi Pauline, thank you for your comment. We're sorry you experienced a problem with the music used as in the background. As a non-profit we rely on the use of royalty-free stock music. In this instance it would seem the clicking was part of the track used, but we didn't pick it up. We hope you enjoyed the message in the video despite the distraction caused by the clicks. Thank you for your support.

Well done for writing this, it is so spot on! Wish we could get this sort of information to our MP's, but I think sadly most of them are completely brainwashed by orthodoxy & 'P.C.ness', as are most of the public.

Control and fear are two sides of a false coin when given priority over dialogue and decisions that honour the whole.
Fear seeks control.
Aligning in love is a decision to honour relational and contextual needs.
That systems of control can mimic the presentation of 'concern' or care' is simply a systemic checkbox devoid of any real value - but given value by the subjection of the living to externalised controls.
The control system that ratchets up as if a new order, is the result of sacrifice of conscious responsibility to external authorities that demand it now as a conditioning to 'incentivised' obediences that have no basis in science or reason.
Invested identity of control is fear-drive and will do anything to survive in its own terms.
Fundamental change is in any case in motion and how we choose to see ourselves and our world.
Perhaps we have never recognised how willing we are to be controlled until the parameters tighten?
15 May 2020 at 6:29 pm
This ties in with the campaigns by Ty and Charlene Bollinger and Sayer Ji in the USA where this pandemic is now being referred to as Plandemic, which is probably nearer the truth. There cannot be the slightest doubt that this virus and the pandemic are man-made and that the whole event has been orchestrated by a small group of very dangerous people with tremendous influence, who clearly control the international media and social media and prevent it from communicating opinions and findings such as the ones included in this video. Is there any way of circulating the video script to a wider audience as the general public appears to be completely clueless?

Hello Werner, thank you for your comment. Due to the high levels of censorship we are currently prevented from increasing our circulation on social media so we are reliant on our supporters sharing and circulating our articles and videos to a wider audience.
Thank you for your support.
15 May 2020 at 7:50 pm
Excellent video Rob! Very reasoned and nothing that people can argue with, even Bill Gates himself probably! :)
16 May 2020 at 7:35 am
This is excellent. I've been finding out why there has been such an extraordinary response to a virus that's killing less than flu over the past weeks from other sources and angles, but good to hear about it from a more scientific point of view and to also hear about the Frontline Covid-19 Critical Care Working Group and their protocol. However, one is left feel totally helpless - what can we puny individuals do against the likes of these enormous corporations? What actions can we take that will have any effect or even reach the individuals one might try and address (eg Boris Johnson and co here in the UK)? Who will they listen to?
16 May 2020 at 10:33 am
Thank you Robert and the team fo this very informative post and video, however the background music and annoying clicks distracted from the video and its content.
I have just read Bill Gates's blog and would recommend that everyone who is interested reads it also.
The blog states that this will be an experimental DNA/RNA vaccine which contains no live or dead natural substances, but will give the body the genetic code to turn your body into its own vaccine manufacturing unit.
Coved vaccine will use experimental technology to permanently alter your DNA.
This technology will have not been tested on humans, it is not licensed for public use, but it is being manufactured by a company called 'Moderna' and is being rolled out in America as an experiment on unsuspecting people under the guise that it will allow the public to be released from this 'prison' of lockdown and social distancing.
I, and a group of scientific friends have be discussing vaccine freedom and the dangers of vaccines for over twenty years. We all live in different parts of the country and we comunicate by telephone, video link and email and we have suffered a certain amount of intimidation. First our phones were tapped, then we noticed that we were being watched and sometimes photographed in the streets where we live. One of the most scientifically qualified of our group suffered a stroke after a visit from a low hovering military helicopter, coincidence - maybe?
It is not possible to lobby our government on any issue because we have to go through our local elected representatives, our MP's, mine in particular has held his Tory seat for 35 years and is completely closed to even questioning his sitting government as I discovered when I wrote to him recently and asked him to question this Goverment's handling of the Coronavirus pandemic, when I was told not to question the decisions made. He received a Knighthood last year for 'Services to the Conservative Party' (towing the party line for the whole of his career)
I am not sure that we as individuals or indeed global goverments have any influence at all over the power of global corporations and the Gates Foundation seems to have almost total power over every aspect of the planet. So I think to have vaccine transparency when you are dealing with the Gates Foundation is going to be an up hill task.
'But, if you think you are too small to make a difference, try sharing a room with a mosquito'. We should not give up!
Thanks to Robert and all at the ANH for all your hard work!
18 May 2020 at 10:02 am
