New pandemic dress rehearsal ‘Catastrophic Contagion’ predicts 20 million dead, mainly children


On 23 October 2022, the Center for Health Security held another tabletop exercise—or dress rehearsal—for a declared worldwide pandemic, entitled Catastrophic Contagion: A Global Challenge Exercise. It posits a “2025” pandemic and was largely patterned after the infamous Event 201 simulation on 18 October 2019, which eerily foreshadowed the announced “Covid–19 pandemic” that started in early 2020 and brought with it a plethora of tyrannical measures that sapped and nearly sunk national economies, while fostering suicides, substance abuse and myriad other social ills.

As was the case for Event 201, Catastrophic Contagion was sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as the Center for Health Security of the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. Although Event 201’s backers also included the World Economic Forum, the WEF was conspicuously absent from direct involvement in the new exercise, it appears.

Catastrophic Contagion was conducted at the Grand Challenges Annual Meeting in Brussels, Belgium. According to a factsheet on the Grand Challenges website:

Grand Challenges is a family of initiatives fostering innovation to solve key global health and development problems. Each initiative is an experiment in the use of challenges to focus innovation on making an impact.

Of particular note is the fact that, similar to the Event 201 exercise held at a New York City hotel, this latest pandemic-preparedness simulation devoted considerable time to fighting what the participants called medical “misinformation” and “disinformation”. That focus strongly suggests that another monopolistic push for “vaccination”—one absolutely hostile to even the most constructive criticism, and at war with alternative medical and nutritional modalities—is likely waiting to be declared amid lurid claims of millions potentially dying from another ambiguous pathogen.

Indeed, a two-minute “official” video summarizing Catastrophic Contagion—whose 14 participants included vaccine-obsessed corporate globalist Bill Gates—reveals that organizers postulated that the new contagion would kill millions of people, most of them children, in order to scare the population to the highest possible degree. So, just as one would expect with tyrants wanting to push a seemingly unchallengeable agenda, alternative voices are not to be tolerated—just as the World Health Organization, which would be at the helm of marshaling resources to fight the next “pandemic,” must be regarded as beyond reproach.

A woman in the video in the (for now) fictional scenario, in a news-like format, announces that the new pandemic, which is called Severe Epidemic Enterovirus Respiratory Syndrome 2025 or SEERS, has caused:

An estimated 1 billion cases worldwide and 20 million deaths, including nearly 15 million children; and countless millions are left alive but with paralysis and brain damage.



An 800-word overview, called Lessons from the Exercise, about this latest drill states that the commissars of medical monopolism expect additional informational resistance this time around:

Countries should prioritize efforts to increase trust in government and public health; improve public health communication efforts; increase the resiliency of populations to misleading information; and reduce the spread of harmful misinformation. In the future, we should continue to expect even more major disruptions from misinformation and disinformation. The WHO can be a globally trusted source, and it can share science and public health information widely, but we should not expect it alone to combat or put a stop to the spread of this mis- and disinformation.

It continues:

Countries need to collaborate to anticipate that threat and prepare to combat it with their own laws and procedures. Just as many types of economic and societal harms can be anticipated and accounted for in pandemic preparedness plans, so too can predictable false or misleading health messaging. Concertedly exploring ways to address this phenomenon on a national level in advance of the next pandemic will be crucial to saving lives.

Notably, while that last quote alludes to national approaches in handling the next pandemic (a certainty that global élites continue to prophesy nonstop), the same official statement suggests that states must improve on their previous lack of confidence—go with the global flow, so to speak—and “strengthen international systems”:

WHO member states should strengthen international systems for sharing and allocating scarce public health resources. Groundbreaking global collaborations, such as the ACT-Accelerator [ACT-A] and COVAX, were launched during the COVID–19 pandemic. However, public health leaders still lack confidence in current approaches to fairly allocate medical countermeasures during a future pandemic.

While complete confirmation that a global pandemic treaty is the WHO’s end goal can be found in a recent UK Column article, it’s conceivable that the extraordinarily fearful scenario of Catastrophic Contagion is designed to spook nations into accepting such a pact and surrendering a significant degree of national sovereignty, coming as it does from a Geneva-based world “health” agency whose first secretary-general, Canadian-born atheist George Brock Chisholm (1896–1971), became a psychiatrist who adopted the ultra-progressive view that children should be raised in an environment that is as “intellectually free” as possible, “independent of the prejudices and biases (political, moral and religious) of their parents”. That’s another way of saying children are, in the final analysis, wards of the state—the dominant model that, among other things, often forces children to receive vaccinations in order to attend statist schools.

Notably, according to the WHO, Act Accelerator (ACT-A) is defined as follows:

[A] groundbreaking global collaboration to accelerate development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines. Launched at the end of April 2020, at an event co-hosted by the Director-General of the World Health Organization, the President of France, the President of the European Commission, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator brings together governments, scientists, businesses, civil society, and philanthropists and global health organizations (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CEPI, FIND, Gavi, The Global Fund, Unitaid, Wellcome, the WHO, and the World Bank). Following the ACT-Accelerator launch, UNICEF and PAHO became delivery partners for COVAX, the vaccines pillar.

The WHO adds:

COVAX is the vaccines pillar of the Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator. The ACT Accelerator is a ground-breaking global collaboration to accelerate the development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines. COVAX is co-led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), Gavi and the World Health Organization (WHO), alongside key delivery partner UNICEF. In the Americas, the PAHO Revolving Fund is the recognized procurement agent for COVAX. It aims to accelerate the development and manufacture of COVID-19 vaccines and to guarantee fair and equitable access for every country in the world.



A key message of the overall Center for Health Security presentation is that, if only more nations had obeyed centralized orders dictated by the WHO and other outlets—referring to lessons they should have learned from Covid–19, then “the toll might have been much less”.

However, what we actually learned from the cartel of Big Pharma, Big Government and the mass media—an unholy trinity that this writer has dubbed the “covidocracy”—is that large numbers of apparent Covid vaccine-related deaths and serious adverse reactions, stemming from mRNA jabs that don’t even qualify as traditional vaccines and that therefore should not be immune from major lawsuits, don’t even seem to give pause for thought to medical despots who are inebriated on power for power’s sake. 

It is worth noting that the Center for Healthy Security at Johns Hopkins has held no fewer than three documented tabletop exercises that weren’t followed by actual pandemics, at least not immediately: Clade X in 2018, Atlantic Storm in 2005, and Dark Winter in 2001.

Yet, if recent history pertaining to Event 201 means that this latest gambit may soon be declared as real, and because it would be a mistake to take that possibility too casually (given the covidocracy’s audacious and fantastically profitable lurch into despotism via the still-ongoing Covid–19 power grab), we could soon be in a fight for our very lives—an information war to end all information wars—to preserve our foundational liberties and medical choice. Nevertheless, with the established media waning and alternatives like UK Column climbing, the odds of victory for sanity, common sense and constitutional rights are getting better all the time. So let’s press on. Carpe diem!
