Dr. Michael Gregor author of the book “How to Survive a Pandemic”, writes that “In the ‘hurricane scale’ of epidemics, COVID-19, with a death rate of around half of one percent, rates a measly Category Two, possibly a Three. … The Big One, the typhoon to end all typhoons, will be 100 times worse when it comes, a Category Five producing a fatality rate of one in two. … Civilization as we know it would cease.”
Dr. Gregor has rated COVID-19 a category 2-3 on the hurricane scale of epidemics.
Gregor puts all the focus on chickens when earlier environmentalists warned this month that the world would face another stronger epidemic if we continue to have contact with wildlife.
“With pandemics explosively spreading a virus from human to human, it’s never a matter of if, but when,” Greger writes. Bird Flu has been a problematic disease for many years and the hardest cycles hit in 2003 and 2009 outside China.
He warns, “as long as there is poultry, there will be pandemics. In the end, it may be us or them.” Dr. Michael Gregor urges on the matter that poultries are “monster lurking in the undergrowth” and if necessary action is not taken, dire consequences await.
