We Are Being Told The “Scary” Mutant COVID In South Africa Is Even More Dangerous Than The “Super COVID” In The UK

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

A new mutant strain of COVID-19 that has been dubbed “501.V2” has gotten completely out of control in South Africa, and authorities are telling us that it is an even bigger threat than the “Super COVID” that has been causing so much panic in the United Kingdom.

Of course, viruses mutate all the time, and so it isn’t a surprise that COVID-19 has been mutating.  But mutations can become a major issue when they fundamentally alter the way that a virus affects humans, and we are being told that “501.V2” is much more transmissible than previous versions of COVID and that even young people are catching it a lot more easily.  That is potentially a huge concern because up until now young people have not been hit very hard by the COVID pandemic.

The British press is using the word “scary” to describe this new variant, and at this point, it has become the overwhelmingly dominant strain in South Africa…

The new mutant, called 501.V2, was announced in Cape Town last Friday and is believed to be a more extreme variant than Britain’s new Covid strain which has plunged millions into miserable Christmas lockdowns.

Cases in South Africa have soared from fewer than 3,000 a day at the start of December to more than 9,500 per day, with the mutant accounting for up to 90 percent of those new infections.

If this same pattern happens elsewhere as this new mutant strain travels around the globe, then “501.V2” could eventually almost entirely replace all of the older versions of COVID.

Authorities are optimistically telling us that the recent vaccines that have been developed will “likely” work against this new variant, but the truth is that they will not know until testing is done.

And if the vaccines don’t work against “501.V2”, we could be back to square one very rapidly.

For now, countries all over the globe are banning flights from South Africa in a desperate attempt to isolate this new version.  The UK, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, and Israel are among the nations that have banned those flights, but so far the United States is not on that list.

So people that are potentially carrying this new version of COVID continue to enter the U.S. on a daily basis.

For the United Kingdom, this flight ban may have come too late because two cases of “501.V2” have already been identified on British soil

Two cases of a new, “more transmissible” COVID-19 variant linked to South Africa have been identified in the UK, the health secretary has said.

Both cases are contacts of people who travelled from South Africa over the last few weeks, Matt Hancock said at a Downing Street news conference.

If the new vaccines are effective against “501.V2”, authorities believe that they already have the long-term answer to this new variant.

But if those vaccines don’t work, this pandemic could be entering a far more deadly new phase.

And of course we are hearing about more problems with these new vaccines on a daily basis.  Thousands of adverse reactions have already been reported to the CDC, and more reports continue to pour in as more people get the shots.  Here is one example from New York City

A health care worker in New York City had a serious adverse reaction to a coronavirus vaccine, officials said on Wednesday.

New York City Health Commissioner David Chokshi said during a news conference that the unidentified worker experienced a “significant allergic reaction” to the vaccine. He added that the worker was treated for the reaction, and is in stable condition and recovering.

We should not be surprised that there are major issues with experimental mRNA vaccines that are based on entirely new technology that were rushed into production without proper testing.

And of course there are tens of millions of Americans that will never take any mRNA vaccine that literally “hijacks your cells” under any circumstances.

On the other hand, most of the U.S. population seems to think that these new vaccines will bring this pandemic to an end, but if they don’t work against new mutant versions of the virus that won’t be true at all.

It is so important to take a balanced view of these things.

Unfortunately, when it comes to COVID most people fall into two camps.

The first camp is totally freaked out because they think that COVID is about the worst thing that could ever happen to the United States and they tend to favor extremely draconian measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

But the truth is that the COVID pandemic pales in comparison to other great pandemics throughout human history.  The Black Plague and the Spanish Flu Pandemic each killed at least 50 million people.  As for the COVID pandemic, the global death toll has not reached the 2 million mark even if the official numbers are accurate.  If a pandemic of this nature is freaking people out so much, what is going to happen when a truly killer plague is unleashed in our society?

The second camp either thinks that the pandemic is greatly exaggerated or that the virus doesn’t even exist at all.  Even though hordes of people are catching the virus all around us, many out there continue to deny the reality of this crisis.

I simply do not understand that.  So many people that I know around the country have gotten the virus, and that includes quite a few big names.  For example, the following is an excerpt from an article in which Daisy Luther shares what her experience with COVID was like

Days 3-5: Over the next three days, chills and fever were almost constant. My joints and muscles hurt. Getting up to go to the bathroom felt like an expedition up a mountain.  I was tired and winded. I had very little appetite and even less of an inclination to cook food so I existed mostly on peanut butter and crackers and leftover soup. I was absolutely exhausted and so cold that I shivered violently when I got out from under my bed piled high with blankets. I had super-weird dreams. My cough worsened, my head hurt, and my throat was still mildly sore.

I drank lots of water and electrolyte beverages. My thirst remained unquenchable regardless of how much I drank. I took vitamins (C, D3) and took Zinc supplements. These are my regular supplements but I doubled that.

Days 6-9: The line to get a test at the local clinic was long and filled with people who were coughing up a lung. There was no way I’d be able to stand in that line for an hour, as sick as I felt. Besides, I figured if I didn’t have Covid, I’d get it standing in the line so I opted not to be tested.

This part made me think of the worst case of the flu I ever had, except intensified by about four times. It was terrible.

I usually let a fever run its course but by Saturday I felt so awful that I gave in and began treating symptoms. My normal temp is in the 96s and my temperature throughout these days stayed between 101-103. I staggered ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and I also used a mild muscle relaxant and my Ventilyn inhaler. The meds didn’t get rid of my fever but reduced the chills to a tolerable level. I slept almost around the clock, waking up for a couple of hours here and there to check on website stuff. Fortunately, I have a wonderful team who kept things running for us. One day blurred into the next and I considered going to the doctor again, but couldn’t muster the energy. I felt like if I just got a little more sleep I’d be okay.

My cough was getting far worse and now my ribs and abdominal muscles hurt. It was a deep painful cough that caused me to clutch my chest every single time inhaled deeply.

So to summarize, yes the COVID pandemic is real, but it is not the end of the world.

More people are going to get sick, and some will suffer intensely, but the vast majority of those that get the virus will survive.

If you want to wear a mask, then wear a mask.

If you don’t want to wear a mask, then don’t wear a mask.

We should be free to make our own choices, and we should also be free to experience the consequences for those choices.

Unfortunately, there are way too many people out there that think that they have the right to censor and control what we say and what we do, and that trend is likely to only get worse as our society continues to spin out of control in the years ahead.

dollar crash Donald Trump experts fiat currency Forecasting Gold Governement Intelwars mining Nancy Pelosi planet power Precious Metals Scary Silver Stocks United States

SAYONARA DOLLAR: Goodbye Silver – GOLD STOCKS ONLY!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

Some things in life are unlikely. Other things are NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. “Unsinkable Sam” was the nickname given to a cat originally named Oscar. It began its military service during WW2 on board the Nazi vessel, Bismarck. The ship was sunk by the British. Soldiers on the HMS Cossack, the conquering ship, discovered the cat floating on a board in the seas, A FEW HOURS after the Nazi ship sank. They saved it and named him Oscar. The British’s luck ran out, though, when a TORPEDO struck and killed many CREW MEMBERS. Somehow, Oscar escaped the onslaught and was given the nickname above. It survived the war and lived a full decade AFTER IT ENDED.

While this story is amusing and unlikely, 2020 is ANYTHING BUT COMICAL. It is not only SCARY AND TRAGIC to most but also a reminder of just how fragile life is, how precious and short it is and what could happen on this planet, circling in the solar system along with trillions of other stars.

Other things are CERTAIN as well. You can trust gravity and the seasons of nature. You can trust in physics and chemistry to work. Einstein said it best: “God doesn’t roll the dice with the universe.”

Sowing is followed by reaping. Sleep is followed by vigor after night comes day – these are so FUNDAMENTAL TO LIFE that we don’t wonder about them – and we accept and work in harmony with them.

With 100% certainty, no fiat currency has EVER WORKED. Let me repeat that, since it is such an astounding fact: NO FIAT CURRENCY has ever survived, long-term.

You can, as Nancy Pelosi said in 2015 after being asked if Donald Trump would ever be President of The United States, “take it to the bank.”

Unlike Pelosi, though, who simply MISREAD the pulse of the nation and was DEAD-WRONG, the following fact is not up for discussion: GOLD IS IN A BULL MARKET.

  1. Our PLAIN VANILLA gold portfolio, comprised of purchasing only physical gold, is trading at an ALL-TIME HIGH. Gold Eagles are sold above $2,000 and at double their price in 2016 when Wealth Research Group launched with the SOLE MISSION of educating the public on precious metals.
  2. Our PLAIN VANILLA gold stocks portfolio, comprised of owning a BASKET OF SENIOR MINERS, such as the GDX index, is up 200% since 2016. Our more leveraged gold stocks portfolio, indexed by the GDXJ, is up 210% and is OUTPERFORMING the mega-cap for the first time since August 2016!

We are WINNING big-time!

Gold stocks have seen AN ALMOST UNIMAGINABLE quantity of fund inflows since the coronavirus pandemic took over the news cycle.

The GLD, which is the controversial ETF everyone uses (since it is gold-backed, at its surface, yet reports are that it is leveraged 250:1), is now holding nearly 3,000 metric tons of gold. The public is FEARFUL and only the countries of Germany and the United States report higher amounts in their official reserves than the GLD have!

In 1990, there weren’t many sure things to bet on, but one gamble that no one took the other side of MATERIALIZED and shattered the paradigm of the time. On February 11th, in Tokyo, a man named Buster Douglas, a CLEAR UNDERDOG, took to the boxing ring, facing off against the UNDISPUTED KING of the heavyweight category, the undefeated Mike Tyson.

Buster won in one of professional sports’ GREATEST UPSETS.

The United States has the dollar, considered by most as Mike Tyson was at his peak: UNCHALLENGED. Gold is Buster Douglas and we’re about to witness a KNOCKOUT BLOW!

I leave you with this: One of the 20th century’s most important composers recently passed away at 91 years of age. His music is revered in all corners of the globe. His most famous masterpiece is near and dear to my heart, because of its title. Ennio Morricone, R.I.P, wrote this one, called The Ecstasy of Gold:

Prepping: 15 Things That Will Happen When The Economy Finally Collapses

We should all be prepared for what’s coming next.  In order to prepare effectively, we need to know what will happen when the economy finally collapses under its own weight.  The creation of money out of thin air could only go on for so long, and we are approaching the end.

Epic Economist put together a great video detailing the 15 things (and yes, some are a little scary) that will happen when the economy collapses.  At this point in time and history, it is no surprise that an economic collapse is coming for us. When the world’s largest economy is deep down in a recession, many other countries will not be late to follow the same path.

The financial breakdown the world is about to face over the next few years will be an unprecedented catastrophe, especially considering that the underlying problems from previous crashes were never fixed, only mended together. A real repair would require a complete restructuration in the system, and the elites were never interested in fixing the system that they set up to screw the rest of us.

These are the 15 things that will happen that you should be prepared for:

1 -Fuel Shortages, or rationing of fuel

2 -Carjackings rise

3- Interstate Trucking is compromised, limiting the supply of essential goods

4-Defaults in garbage disposal and urban sanitation

5- Food scarcity, a disruption in food supply chains

6-Water quality drops

7-The population gets on survival mode, one example of this could be the slaughtering of zoo animals for food.

8-Pets go missing

9-Civil agitation leads to turbulence in the streets

10-Attacks become more frequent

11-Kidnappings Increase

12-Gang Activity Increases

13-Banks Close

14-Hospitals become Overloaded

15-  Martial Law Enacted

Knowing that these things are likely to happen when the economy collapses should help give you an idea of what you’re going to need to be prepared.  Make sure you know how to defend yourself and your family. Make sure you have a way to filter water.  You will need to be able to avoid crowds and live on your own, potentially off the grid. Become self-reliant and do not put your faith in the system.  Most people are still desperately fighting to keep the system intact in spite of the awareness that it’s rigged and corrupt.  Instead, leave the system, put your faith in yourself, improve critical thinking skills, and create your back up plans.
