Zoonotic Crossovers - Daszak's Argument (General)

by dulan drift, Sunday, February 07, 2021, 13:02 (22 days ago) @ dulan drift

Daszak’s favourite claim - edit - favourite of course is ‘whoever disagrees with me is a conspiracy theorist’ - second favourite is:
“We can safely estimate that between one and seven million people are infected with bat coronaviruses each year.” (in South East Asia alone)

People are infected, so the story goes, on a daily basis.. by undiscovered viruses in wildlife in emerging disease hotspots.”

“Any one of these could be the next ‘Disease X’ – potentially even more disruptive and lethal than COVID-19.”

Indeed. 7mil divided by 365 = 19 178 potential Disease X’s every day!

The Message is:

Be afraid. Zoonotic crossover events are lurking/happening around every human interaction with animals - from bats to backyard chickens - was always ready to explode - which we warned you about - btw.

“But we’re all to blame – we talked about pandemics professionally, but we should have shouted louder. Some people did, but they were called scaremongerers, accused of hyping it up. Look at where we are now."

Don’t be too hard on yourself Pete - you shouted long n loud from the world’s loudest platforms. You did your best. When the history of Covid is written - no-one can take that away from you.

On the upside, “where you are now” is a rich getting richer pivotee-to-China WHO celebrity scientist - which is not a bad gig going forward considering...

“A pandemic such as this one isn’t a once-in-a-lifetime tragedy.”
