Die totalitäre Horrorvision des Weltwirtschaftsforums wird wahr gemacht

Beim jährlichen Milliardärsstelldichein in Davos Anfang 2018 wurde ein im Auftrag des Weltwirtschaftsforums erstelltes Pilotprojekt für die Überwachung von Flugreisenden beschlossen, das ich damals als “totalitäre Horrorvison” vorstellte. Ein nun veröffentlichter Nachfolgebericht zeigt, dass der Club der größten multinationalen Konzerne eifrig und erfolgreich daran arbeitet, die Regierungen und die EU in die Umsetzung dieser Horrorvision einzuspannen.

Das Projekt läuft bisher unter dem Titel “Der bekannte Reisende”, im Original The Known Traveller Digital Identity-Projekt”, kurz KTDI.

Event 201 Recommendations: Public-private cooperation for pandemic preparedness and response

(17.01.2020)

Public health authorities should work with private employers and trusted community leaders such as faith leaders, to promulgate factual information to employees and citizens. Trusted, influential private-sector employers should create the capacity to readily and reliably augment public messaging, manage rumors and misinformation, and amplify credible information to support emergency public communications. National public health agencies should work in close collaboration with WHO to create the capability to rapidly develop and release consistent health messages. For their part, media companies should commit to ensuring that authoritative messages are prioritized and that false messages are suppressed including though the use of technology.

Accomplishing the above goals will require collaboration among governments, international organizations and global business.

Bill Gates Is Helping to Launch a Global Coalition to ‘Outsmart Epidemics’

(19. Januar 2017)

A new coalition to prevent epidemics was launched Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, with the aim of creating vaccines and other measures to preclude the spread of infectious disease.

The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), backed by the governments of Germany, Japan and Norway with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will commit an initial $460 million to “outsmart epidemics,” the coalition said in a statement.

Event 201: Bill Gates & World Economic Forum Simulated Coronavirus Outbreak 6 Weeks Before First Case in Wuhan

(27.01.2020)

Event 201 is a pandemic tabletop exercise hosted by The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated the pandemic preparedness efforts needed to diminish the large-scale economic and societal consequences of a severe pandemic. Drawing from actual events, Event 201 identifies important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These issues were designed in a narrative to engage and educate the participants and the audience.

The Event 201 scenario

(October 2019)

The disease starts in pig farms in Brazil, quietly and slowly at first, but then it starts to spread more rapidly in healthcare settings. When it starts to spread efficiently from person to person in the low-income, densely packed neighborhoods of some of the megacities in South America, the epidemic explodes. It is first exported by air travel to Portugal, the United States, and China and then to many other countries. Although at first some countries are able to control it, it continues to spread and be reintroduced, and eventually no country can maintain control.

There is no possibility of a vaccine being available in the first year.

Statement about nCoV and our pandemic exercise

(24.01.2020)

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.

German Defense Chief Warns Islamic State Could Resume ‘Terror’

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, speaking in an interview at the World Economic Forum on Thursday, said that Germany aims to keep its forces in Iraq, but can only do so at the behest of the government in Baghdad.

“We need to keep in mind that in Iraq, IS is not yet defeated,“ Kramp-Karrenbauer told Bloomberg Television in Davos, Switzerland. “If the pressure is reduced, then the danger is great that it resumes its regime of terror.”

EU-Kommissionschefin in Davos: Von der Leyen droht mit Klima-Zöllen

Ein „Grenzausgleichssystem“ für CO2 sei ein Weg, um das Klima und Unternehmen vor unfairer Konkurrenz zu schützen, sagte von der Leyen beim Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos. Es mache keinen Sinn, „Treibhausgas-Emissionen nur zu Hause zu senken, wenn wir zugleich den Import von CO2 aus dem Ausland erhöhen“.

Merkel Calls for Swift Return to ‘Normal’ Monetary Policy

In the past Merkel has refrained from wading into monetary policy by defending the independence of the European Central Bank. President Donald Trump has been more pointed, arguing the Federal Reserve has been too aggressive in raising rates. In the U.K., the Bank of England has come under attack from pro-Brexit supporters over its grim economic forecasts about the costs of leaving the European Union.

Xi Jinping empfängt Präsident des Weltwirtschaftsforums Schwab

Öffnung und Zusammenarbeit führt zu einem breiteren Weg, während man mit Verschlossenheit nur in eine Sackgasse gerät.

Dies sagte Chinas Staatspräsident Xi Jinping am Montag beim Empfang des Präsidenten des Weltwirtschaftsforums, Klaus Schwab, in Beijing.

Weiter sagte er, in letzter Zeit seien mit der Anti-Globalisierungsbewegung und dem Protektionismus zunehmend Risiken und unsichere Faktoren in der Weltwirtschaft einhergegangen.
