The Lancet is among the world’s oldest and best-known general medical journals and will celebrate its 200th anniversary next year.
That’s why the headline on its most recent issue garnered a lot of elite attention: “COVID-19 will continue but the end of the pandemic is near.”
The byline is also notable: it’s Bill Gates-funded modeler Chris Murray, whose wildly pessimistic Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IMHE) model provided the bogus predictions that were used to justify draconian lockdowns.
Murray predicts that “COVID-19 will become another recurrent disease that health systems and societies will have to manage. For example, the death toll from omicron seems to be similar in most countries to the level of a bad influenza season in northern hemisphere countries… The era of extraordinary measures by government and societies to control SARS-CoV-2 transmission will be over. After the omicron wave, COVID-19 will return but the pandemic will not.”
This shift at Lancet is finally shifting to a more rational response to COVID, especially since its early deplorable coverage of the origins of the pandemic. In February 2020 they published an open letter denouncing suggestions that COVID emerged from a Wuhan lab as a conspiracy theory.
That letter was secretly orchestrated by Peter Daszak, president of the US-based EcoHealth Alliance that has directly funded research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
So we’re not entirely sure that we can believe a word these people say.
