The Pandemic Was Planned, And It Matters

by Krystal Deets

The deepest divide of the pandemic is not between the vaccinated and the un-vaccinated, the masked and the unmasked, or even the pro-mandate and anti-mandate crowds. The greatest divide is in the fundamental perception of the pandemic itself.  

Did covid catch the world off guard? Are vaccines, vaccine mandates, mask-mandates, and other restrictions all part of a sincere effort to preserve health and safely restore human freedom?

Or was the entire pandemic planned, a tool of powerful people crafted to advance goals that could not be achieved otherwise? Many have not yet considered this possibility. If evildoers did orchestrate the pandemic, they would most certainly lie about what they were doing. To obtain the compliance of the masses, propaganda would be a necessary part of their plan. This complicates our ability to discern the truth.

But discern the truth we must, because our belief about the fundamental nature of the pandemic will inform our response to every question that arises thereafter.  

Questioning mainstream thought is uncomfortable under any circumstance, and it requires both humility and discipline to question conclusions we’ve previously settled in our own minds. We must overcome the desire to dismiss evidence we don’t want to believe or that challenges our worldview. Try to read this article like you’re reading a history book, a story in which you have no personal stake, and see what dots you connect in your mind. The questions of who, how, and why are for another day. 

Today we simply ask, was it orchestrated from the start?


On October 18, 2019, a day when we are told covid-19 was still percolating in bat soup, unknown to mankind, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum, hosted Event 201, a pandemic-planning exercise. Attendees included representatives from a collection of powerful organizations including the UN Foundation, the World Bank, the CIA, and both the US and Chinese Centers for Disease Control.[1]  

The fictional pandemic on which the exercise was based was that of a novel coronavirus that jumped from swine to humans. Patients experienced symptoms ranging from mild flu to severe pneumonia. The script included inadequate supplies of N95 masks, travel bans, and a poll of the public to determine their receptivity to an experimental vaccine. The script even included a mock news broadcast in which a journalist claimed it was “the right choice” to “control and reduce [the public’s] access to information.”[2]  

Numerous fact-check articles have claimed that Event 201 did not predict the covid-19 pandemic, but is that a fair assessment? Or did the script just predict the fact-checkers’ behavior along with everything else?


Event201 was not the only oddly prescient event held that month. On October 29, 2019, the Milken Institute hosted a panel discussion titled “Making Influenza History: The Quest for a Universal Vaccine.” Dr. Anthony Fauci sat in the middle of the stage, surrounded by panelists who shared his passion for flu inoculation.

Members of the panel lamented that many people do not get an annual flu shot because they don’t perceive the flu as dangerous, that flu isn’t “sexy”. 

They bemoaned bureaucracy, the time it takes to develop vaccines, and that pharmaceutical companies continued to make vaccines using traditional methods rather than pursuing new technologies. 

In order to get more people to take flu vaccines, panel members agreed, there needed to be a disruptive event, something that would cause people to perceive the flu as more dangerous. At one point, panel member Rick Bright, Director of the HHS Biomedical Advanced Research & Development Authority commented “It is not too crazy to think that an outbreak of a novel avian virus could occur in China somewhere. We could get the RNA sequences from that and beam it around the world [for use in vaccines].”  

If the panel had been describing a custom suit, a tailor would have sewn them covid.

Covid has certainly been a disruptive event that generated unprecedented fear of flu-like symptoms. The pandemic may not have convinced the world to accept a universal flu vaccine, but millions have accepted an injection for a flu-like disease with a comparable mortality rate. Bureaucracy was suspended and shots using new technology were developed in a sliver of the normal lead-time. Things came full circle when in June 2021, Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel told Forbes Magazine that, in addition to booster shots, his company was planning to produce a combination flu/covid-19 vaccine.[3]

Was all of this a coincidence?


On April 4, 2019, an episode of the television series Project Runway featured a model named Kovid. This particular model’s plaid outfit included a fabric mask that covered his nose and mouth. 

“What do you think of the mask?” the show’s judges were asked. “It’s sick,” one replied. [4] [5]

Is Kovid a common name for models? For anyone? Before covid, had you ever seen someone using a mask as a fashion accessory? The designer was clearly ahead of the times… by right about 11 months.

What are the odds?  


While most doctors are unlikely to give much thought to bioweaponry, Dr. Lee Merritt served several years on the Navy Research Advisory Committee (a congressional subcommittee) placing her in a unique position to assess our current situation.[6]  Dr. Merritt has stated repeatedly that she believes covid-19 to be a bioweapon; that is to say, that the virus was modified in a lab. In an October 6, 2021 interview on the BardsFM podcast[7], Dr. Merritt pointed to a research paper from January, 2020 that helped inform her thinking on the matter.

The paper, written by Prashant Pradhan’s team of researchers based in New Delhi, India, was titled “Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag”.[8]  In short, the researchers said they’d found four separate artificial genetic inserts resembling HIV in every specimen of covid-19 spike protein they were able to examine.  

That’s not natural.

Dr. Merritt says what happened to the researchers convinced her their findings were likely legitimate. “Immediately they were told they had to withdraw the paper. They said ‘Wait a minute, wait a minute. We have the data!’” but enough pressure was applied that the paper was withdrawn.  

This was not the only time HIV was in the news in relation to covid. In December 2020, a covid vaccine being developed in Australia was abandoned after clinical trial participants tested positive for HIV. Developers claimed these were “false-positive” test results and that the vaccines were being abandoned so as to avoid undermining trust in covid vaccines.[9][10]  

Make of that what you will.


There has been much debate about whether or not covid-19 escaped (or was released) from a lab in Wuhan. In 2020, fact-checkers claimed the theory was false and evidence to the contrary was censored, but the story wouldn’t go away. Then in 2021, additional evidence surfaced, Biden directed the intelligence agencies to investigate the matter[11] and the media changed its tune. Suddenly, the lab-leak theory was considered a credible possibility, though, given the political implications, it appears unlikely that all parties will ever publicly agree one way or another.

But do we need to prove that this virus came from that lab in that month, or do we already know enough to inform our thinking on this pandemic?

It’s no secret that labs around the world (many funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s NIAID) have been modifying viruses for years. We know this “research” is done because patents are taken on the enhanced viruses the labs develop. Furthermore, patents are taken on the potentially lucrative products developed to address the problems created by the new viruses.  

On April 25, 2003, none other than the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) filed a patent on the genome of the SARS coronavirus (US patent number 7220852). It is illegal to patent nature, so by filing a patent, the CDC was representing SARS coronavirus as manmade and claiming itself as the rightful owner of the invention. 

David Martin, Ph.D., founder and CEO of M-CAM International, is a world-renowned expert in property law who has been speaking out on the story told by patent records. He and his team have been closely monitoring patents filed since the 1990s. In the documentary Plandemic: InDoctorNation, Dr. Martin explained that by filing patent 7220852, the CDC was admitting to a crime. Either they violated biological and chemical weapons laws by manufacturing a virus, or they violated intellectual property law by representing nature as their own creation.

Dr. Martin saw this pandemic coming for years. He and his team have identified some 4,000 patents on the coronavirus genome and related products since 2002. No other pathogen has anything close to such a library. “You don’t file patents on something you don’t intend to commercialize,” he said in an interview published on on October 17, 2021. These viruses have been commercialized before. For example, on April 28, 2003, “Sequoia Pharmaceuticals received a $935,000 grant and filed U.S. Patent 7151163 for a treatment for [the virus patented by the CDC on April 25]… That sounds like an inside job because you cannot have a pathogen identified and a cure for it in [three] days….” Dr. Martin said. 

Governments around the world used the novel nature of covid to justify the extreme measures taken to stop its spread. This virus had never been seen before so no one knew what we were up against, right? Wrong. 

Testifying before the German Corona Ex-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee on July 9, 2021[12], Dr. Martin presented a list of 120 patents relating to SARS-CoV-2 features, including 73 patents issued between 2008 and 2019 with elements specific to the manipulation of the polybasic cleavage site for SARS-COV-2, the spike protein, and the ACE-2 receptor binding domain, all three of which are supposed to be unique features of SARS-CoV-2. “We found records… of sequences attributed to novelty going to patents that were sought as early as 1999…This was not a novel anything.”


If this information is new to you, it can be overwhelming. So step back. You may be able to draw some conclusions on your own.

Set aside everything you’ve been told the last few years and see if you can ask your 2018-self some questions:

In 2018, had you ever been told to stay away from others in order to avoid giving them a disease of which you have no symptoms? How often were you encouraged to test for diseases you had no reason to believe you were carrying?  

If you got a flu shot in 2018, did you think it was to protect others from getting the flu? Did you think that others’ flu shots protected you? If you saw a stranger wearing a surgical mask at the airport, did it occur to you that it was worn to protect your health?

Where are you more likely to catch an infectious, airborne disease: at your local antique shop or at Costco? In an outbreak, would it make sense to close the former and leave the latter open? Would it make sense to close churches but not casinos?

In a pandemic, would you expect the homeless population to remain healthy? 

Would it make sense to release criminals from prisons where there had been no outbreaks in order to keep them safe from a disease circulating outside the prison? Might they not be safer inside? Does it make sense to tell prisoners to go isolate themselves from others elsewhere and trust they’ll do so voluntarily? 

Would it make sense for the number of deaths in a pandemic year to be on par with that of a normal year?  

Might it be fair to conclude that a population pressured to embrace a way of thinking entirely foreign to a 2018-mind was being manipulated?


If the pandemic was planned, there are certainly more questions that must be explored, none of them easy. What should be obvious, though, is that those orchestrating the pandemic, from its start and as it endures, are not worthy of our trust. Many of the people they are using to execute their plans must be in on the crime, but a great many others are likely operating in good faith, deceived along with the rest of us. Nonetheless, their directives and advice must be questioned on every level. If we do not resist, then those who started all of this will achieve their purposes. We may not know what those purposes are yet, but if this is the method, we can be assured that the ends are not for the common good.
