The Making Of Covid-19 And The Ensuing Pandemic (Updated)



By Gary L. Andresen

Below is an abbreviated chronological summary of the happenings surrounding the emergence of Covid-19 beginning in 2020 and the pandemic that lead to quarantines and lockdowns globally. It has been updated to include an informative Tucker Carlson interview on the 2/27/23 edition of his nightly Fox News program.

The first thing that stands out in my mind as I think back on all that has transpired since first hearing of a new deadly coronavirus that broke out in China at the beginning of 2020, was videos such as the one below showing people dropping dead for no apparent reason.

China was doing everything to keep things quiet, but the news was spreading like wildfire.

After a short while, the China PR machine jumped into gear and began indicating that the flu resulted from infected bats being sold in the Wuhan, China wet market.

As a result, people started calling it the Wuhan Flu. This story circulated for a while and then they started pushing the theory that an animal-to-human transfer of the virus had occurred and they were taking strong measures to contain it in their borders.

Unfortunately, the timing of this could not have been worse because this just happened to be when people in China were celebrating the “Lunar New Year” which resulted in this headline, “People in China are making 3 billion trips to celebrate the Lunar New Year, and it’s not going to help the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak.”

Trump was considering a border close to keep the virus out of America but was met with strong resistance such as claims of racial profiling, so formed a task force to deal with the situation.

All of this was for naught as we later learned that the virus has most likely been circulating since the last few months of 2019, which was why it was already showing up worldwide.

Soon after, wild predictions were made about the severity of this flu that they said would end up killing millions of people, while downplaying the expected mortality rate based on age and health status.

We were told that this flu was spread by air particles and were told to wear masks to protect ourselves. Videos were circulated showing how far sneeze particles travel and we were told to sanitize our purchases when we returned from buying food and other goods as well as our counters when returning home.

After not too long, it was observed certain countries were having more widespread breakouts of the flu, which turned out to be countries with strong ties to China resulting in more travel between those countries.

Soon, it became political with Donald Trump’s opponents going after him for every conceivable reason. As one news story explained, The Democrat Party press is openly trying to turn coronavirus into President Trump’s Hurricane Katrina”

Miraculously, we learned in mid-March that the first vaccine for this virus had been produced in record time with Phase 1 trials beginning in Seattle, Washington.

Then began talk of overwhelming hospitals with sick flu patients and the need to “Flatten the Curve” through strict measures that would only be needed for a short period.

President Trump declared that long-existing drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine – used for malaria and arthritis could successfully treat Covid-19 and was met with strong resistance from the media and medical community.

Trump ultimately contracted Covid and was quickly cured by doctor Zelenko using methods that had proved successful on thousands of patients, but the media and health organizations such as the CDC and WHO ignored it, and subsequently condemned them.

As time continued, some doctors and other medical professionals declared good results fighting this flu with Ivermectin as well, along with vitamin D and other supplements to boost people’s immune systems. This was met with strong resistance and all means available were used to silence them.

People were quarantined in countries around the world and lockdowns mandated that killed thousands of businesses and left vast numbers of people out of a job.

It was later learned that the vaccines being introduced leveraged new unproven mRNA technology that had never been used for something like this and was being released under special allowances to get them to the public ASAP.

These mRNA vaccines were touted as providing complete immunity from Covid and were later mandated on a widespread basis if people wanted to continue their employment with government agencies, the military, most healthcare facilities, and large corporations throughout the world.

The effort to push these vaccinations was relentless, and even though time has proven their value suspect, and even dangerous, they are still being recommended by government agencies today.

As they say, time will tell, and the short video below shows how the claims made by Big Pharma were a pack of lies.

As time passed, we learned that these vaccines not only do not prevent people from contracting Covid, or spreading it to others, they actually make things worse for many of the people vaccinated with these mRNA vaccines.

Large numbers of those vaccinated had from simple, to life-threatening adverse events, after getting vaccinated, including death, with evidence of vaccine-related sudden death reports increasing daily.

One example of deaths from these vaccines is heart problems due to clogged arteries, as explained in this “They Died Suddenly” video that was released last November.

There is much that can be said about what happened or didn’t happen and all the decisions that were made that lead us to where we stand today, which on a large part are impacted by political affiliation and people that can influence opinion in the mainstream media, social media platforms, government agencies and of course the big pharmaceutical companies that have made billions off of this pandemic.

Key Events In The Covid-19 Saga

Leveraging a database of over 2,000 articles I have read and amassed since 2020, when news started circulating on what is being commonly called coronavirus and Covid-19, here are some of the major events that occurred from early 2020 to the present. (Click Here For The Article Reference List.)

  • On October 18, 2019, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Economic Forum, John Hopkins Center for Health Security, and others, held a tabletop exercise called “Event 201” – Within months, the SARS CoV2 coronavirus was revealed to the world’s population, blamed on bats, and we entered the hell that they outlined
  • Unbeknownst to most people, and certainly, the general public, “Gain of Function Research” was being conducted in the US, China, with our dollars and research assistance, and elsewhere around the world.
  • This research resulted in the creation of a more lethal and easily spread version of the common coronavirus’.
  • The modified virus escaped the Wuhan Institute of Virology before 2020, and mostly during the last quarter of 2019, possibly as early as October.
  • China tried to hide things with their Wuhan Wet Market narrative, which made things worse because people moved forward under false conclusions.
  • Since this Wuhan lab was known to have a relationship with the Chinese military and there was tension between China and America under Trump at the time, was this virus released intentionally? This is a possibility, but I doubt the CCP is that stupid.
  • Dr. Fauci was intimately involved in mass Gain Of Function research both here and abroad, which he tried to hide.
  • Early survival rate estimates of 99.997% for the youngest in the population, and 94.6% for the elderly showed that Covid-19 was not very deadly. This which was ignored by the mainstream media and essentially squelched, along with the fact that the majority of deaths were people with co-morbidities that put them at extra risk.
  • Selected studies that showed Covid to be very deadly were touted to scare the general public.
  • Dr. Fauci’s statements varied over time, from “It’s nothing to worry about” in the beginning, to “It’s is very dangerous and must be dealt with using the strongest measures.”
  • mRNA vaccines were pushed through clinical field trials rapidly ignoring long-held practices and presented as offering complete protection from getting and/or passing Covid to others.
  • The supposed vaccines were given emergency authorized for use by the FDA and protected from possible lawsuits in the event of adverse reactions after being vaccinated.
  • These mRNA vaccines didn’t meet the traditional definition of a “vaccine” – To Resolve This, The CDC Changed The Definition of “Vaccine” On September 1st so It Would Apply To The COVID-19 Vaccines
  • Normally, when you are offered a medical procedure or vaccine a person needs to be informed about both the risks and benefits of, and alternatives to the proposed treatment. Drugs and other pharmaceutical products provide documents describing possible risks and adverse events that could result from taking the medication or vaccine. This was not provided in the case of these vaccines from Pfizer and others. Blank sheets were included in the mRNA vaccine packages.
  • Strict measures were mandated to stop the spread including, mandated mask-wearing, school closures, remote learning and work, business closures, quarantines, lockdowns, and so on.
  • Instead of focusing on those most at risk, we were given vaccine mandates and the threat of job loss for not getting vaccinated. People were fired for not getting vaccinated, even those with religious objections.
  • Extreme measures were used to squelch any mention of alternative treatment for Covid-19 that did not adhere to the accepted dialog promoted by governments around the world, such as hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, etc. and anybody mentioned them was silenced, including the threat of losing medical licenses.
  • Big Tech and Big Pharma used their vast resources to hide any information to hide information from the public that might cause them to question getting the mRNA vaccines and making an informed decision on their effectiveness.
  • Certain countries such as Australia, Israel, Germany, Italy, and others used extreme measures to get most of their populations, including house arrest, which caused people to protest by the thousands in their cities.
  • As time passed, the counties with the highest vaccination rates experienced the most adverse events and deaths attributed to reactions from the Covid-19 mRNA experimental vaccines.
  • Billions of dollars were made by the pharmaceutical companies as public agencies such as the FDA, World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control and National Institute of Health withheld information from the public and spread lies about alternative treatments and the effectiveness of the vaccines.
  • Conflicts of interest were found in many places, including the fact that Dr. Fauci’s wife was the Director of Bioethics at the National Institute of Health.
  • In the latter part of 2021, a world-renowned psychiatrist proclaimed that “Global Predators” Fauci, Gates, and Schwab Are Behind the COVID “Reign of Terror” which was very revealing.
  • Talk began circulating of a “Great Reset” associated with a “New World Order” as envisioned by the “World Economic Forum” which included reducing the world’s population for the betterment of humanity.
  • After the mandate vaccines were distributed around the world and people began taking them, after not too long it began to be apparent they didn’t protect people from getting Covid, or spreading it, as their effectiveness waned due to new Covid variants. Consequently, boosters were recommended, then required with up to four or five boosters needed as time went on.
  • They not only didn’t help but made things worse as more and more people complained of experiencing serious adverse reactions, as reported to VAERS. These numbers grew rapidly even though it was known many adverse events were never reported to VAERS.
  •  Pfizer and the FDA knew there were serious problems resulting from the vaccines so tried to hide critical Pfizer documents from public view for 75 years. This was ultimately overturned which allowed the public to learn what Pfizer and their government accomplices had been hiding.
  • We now know that these vaccines are not only ineffective but dangerous with serious side effects and many deaths resulting from their administration.
  • In early 2022, insurance companies increased their U.S. mortality expectations by 300,000 due to Covid and  the vaccines and later a top insurance analyst advised that regions with high vaccination rates for Covid are showing  a 15% higher overall mortality rate in 2022 over that of 2021
  • We have now reached the point that people are beginning to believe that the mRNA “Vaccines” were designed to hurt us, pointing out that Scientists, Pfizer, the FDA, and others knew they were of no real benefit in preventing Covid-19 infections and they knew this before their approval and distribution to the world’s population.
  • Life expectancy numbers have dropped for the first time in 25 years.
  • Elon Musk is calling for the prosecution of Dr. Anthony Fauci and proclaims the public deserves to know about “behind the scenes” public health happenings over time, and the role Fauci played in them, indicating he will soon provide proof of his actions.

So what do I really think?

  • There are too many coincidences to think that this was all an accident and not the result of advanced planning.
  • Covid-19 was planned and leveraged for control purposes.
  • Governments around the world overreacted based on biased information they were fed by “bad actor” operatives with agendas that grew over time based on their growing success.
  • The mRNA vaccines are dangerous and Big Pharma knew they were from the start.
  • Follow the money and you will uncover corruption on a scale never seen before.
  • The pandemic was used to increase government control of the population and unseat a sitting President by drastically changing voting rules and enabling vote manipulation.
  • Key players on the world stage wanted to reduce the population of the world and it appears they have been successful in doing so as an untold amount of people have been injured, or died after taking the mRNA vaccines and booster shots.
  • A formal investigation needs to be conducted now that Republicans have taken the House of Representatives with Dr. Fauci front and center of the investigation.

Update: Last night Tucker Carlson spent over twenty minutes on this topic and interviewed Dr. Li-Meng Yan a virologist who was working at a World Health Organization reference lab in Hong Kong during the onset of the pandemic and fled to the United States in April 2020, claiming that the Chinese government covered up the initial outbreak of COVID-19. A video of the show is provided below via Rumble because there is a chance it will be removed from YouTube for political reasons.

I could go on, but I urge you to take some time and decide for yourself by taking a look at the titles of various articles on this subject in my “The Making Of Covid-19 And The Pandemic – Article Link Database”

  • If you only take the time to scan the article descriptions you will see how what was known changed over time as you move from the beginning, back in 2020, to the present time, showing things that appeared to be true in the initially turned out to be twisted truths and even lies.
  • You can use the search function described at the beginning to quickly find articles that may be of special interest, for example, Wuhan = 48, CDC = 189, NIH = 21, Fauci = 108, WHO/World Health Organization = 166, etc.

If anybody has information on this subject you feel I would find useful, please provide that information via the “Comments: section below.

Thanks for your indulgence.

Cold And Refreshing

When I was a kid this was a common site.

My experience was that the coldest soft drinks were from the coolers with circulating cold water that was kept at a temperature just above freezing. This was especially applicable in later years if you could find one with beers in it. I found a few of the in the old part of Las Vegas.
