According to the Director of the Moscow based Microbiology Research Institute, herd immunity saved Russia from Coronavirus. He attributed lower Coronavirus death rates in Russia to higher herd immunity among Russians.

Herd Immunity Saved Russia From Coronavirus Says Expert

The coronavirus death rate in Russia is much lower than in other countries due to the higher herd immunity among Russians, Director of the Gamalei Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology Alexander Gintsburg said on Monday.

“Three to four times [66%-75%] lower, we’re at the tail end of the list, since the herd immunity of our fellow countrymen, I am extremely confident, is much higher than that of European and American citizens,” Gingsburg said in an interview aired on Rossiya-24 TV.

According to the latest statistics, over 4,815,000 people have been infected with the novel coronavirus worldwide and more than 316,000 deaths have been reported. In addition, so far, over 1,863,000 individuals have recovered from the illness across the globe.

To date, a total of 290,678 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Russia, with 70,209 patients having recovered from the virus. Russia’s latest data indicates 2,722 fatalities nationwide.

As GreatGameIndia reported earlier, studies on herd immunity are grossly neglected. Herd immunity occurs when a large percentage of a population has developed immunity to an infection, whether through previous infections or vaccinations, thereby protecting individuals who are not immune. This is akin to a chink in the chain breaking a chain reaction.

In a population in which a large proportion of individuals possess immunity, such people being unlikely to contribute to disease transmission, chains of infection are more likely to be disrupted, which either stops or slows the spread of disease. Stanford Medicine researchers are studying this apparent phenomenon in California, where positive cases are fewer by many order of magnitude than New York.

There is huge pressure from the vaccine industry combined with the fear-mongering from media to extend the lockdown until they come up with their vaccines. Infact, past experience show this is exactly what the World Health Organization (WHO) did a decade ago.

In 2009, during the H1N1 outbreak the WHO not only faked a pandemic but also kept the identity of their advisers secret from people. Eventually, when committees were setup and it was found that WHO was following orders from the vaccine lobby, the WHO officials were force to apologies for this crime against humanity. And now, we are witnessing the same episode repeat again.

In a shocking development the President of Madagascar has made a sensational claim that the WHO offered $20m bribe to poison COVID-19 cure. The Madagascar controversy has erupted days after Tanzania kicked out WHO after Goat and Papaya samples came COVID-19 Positive. Following the Tanzanian lead Burundi also kicked out entire WHO Coronavirus Team from the country for interference in internal matters.

Meanwhile, in yet another African nation Nigeria, Bill Gates has been caught bribing forced Coronavirus program. Just a couple of days later, an Italian politician demanded the arrest of Bill Gates in the Italian parliament. She also exposed Bill Gates’ agenda in India and Africa, along with the plans to chip the human race through the digital identification program ID2020.

In the wake of strict lockdown being imposed by governments globally, it bears upon the common people, thinkers, researchers and scientists to question whether such methods are indeed correct and singularly helpful in combating the outbreak of COVID-19. While the World Health Organization and vested interests are busy pushing cartelized medicine and vaccines, what is not being told to people is that it is scientifically proven that fresh air and sunlight have been overpowering diseases since centuries – the Cure that time forgot.
