All of the worst disasters in recorded history have been natural disasters — earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones, and floods.
A natural disaster depends on the size and location of the event and is generally only catastrophic if they take place in an area where they affect human populations.
There is often a relationship between past events and future events, but the fact remains that we cannot predict or control natural events., but they are thanks to our help surging exponentially affecting around 217 million people a year.
80% of this growth is the direct result of Climate Change.
Most of these disasters killed around 250,000 people.
The world death toll from the Coronavirus/ COVID-19 is unknown but the figure we are all watching is likely to be an under-report.
The truth is we don’t know how many deaths have or are taking place.
If we assume that 2% of the world population ( 7 Billion) get the virus that is 140,000,000 million and if only 0.05% died as a result that is 35,000,000.
With a vaccine some months away it’s more than scary.
As of 20 April 2020, approximately 165,000 deaths had been attributed to COVID-19.
To put some perspective on the above the 1918 influenza pandemic killed as many as 50 million. If a similar contagion happened today it could kill up to 80 million and wipe out more than 5% of the global economy.
Correct me if I am wrong both started with the infection of one person.
When one looks at COVID-19 it will be catastrophic when it hits countries that do not have the capabilities to stop its spread.
This is why we need NATO to step up to the plate.
The WHO has neither the means nor the organization to administer a vaccine on a global scale and rest assured if we are to get to grips with COVID-19 on a global scale ( which is an ongoing world pandemic with over 2 million cases) we will need a military-style response.
Here is my suggestion.
NATO needs to reinvent itself and now is the time to do so.
It is going to take an army of trained people to administrate a vaccine when it arrives.
If you support this idea please copy the below letter to NATO and email it to the following email address.
As you know the world is in the grip of a war with an invisible enemy call COVID-19.
Never in your history or the world’s history is an alliance so needed to defeat this enemy.
To do so your military clout is needed urgently to coordinate and administrate worldwide a vaccine WHEN IT COMES.
What’s wrong with this picture?
As much as one can admire your new headquarters that cost somewhere around 1.6 billion, here is an opportunity to justify its cost and show the world that you can indeed protect and defeat an enemy.
WE ARE ASKING YOU TO PREPARE YOUR MEMBERS BY TRAINING ALL THEIR PERSONEL TO BE ABLE TO ADMINISTER THE VACCINE ON A WORLD SCALE.
TO COORDINATE AND TRACK ITS SUPPLY AND DISTRIBUTION.
