SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) is the UK’s health expert panel that has advised the UK government during the COVID-19 crisis.
The group recently predicted a catastrophic scenario where the next COVID-19 mutation could potentially be as lethal as MERS.
MERS has a fatality rate of 35%.
And the experimental vaccine rollout could be largely to blame.
Last month, WLT brought you an insightful report on antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance.
During my school days, I did an extensive report on this very subject and it indeed places humanity at an increased risk of more dangerous pathogens.
The botched COVID-19 vaccine rollout is potentially leading us down that path.
Under normal circumstances, viruses become less lethal as they mutate over time.
But with this mass vaccine rollout, we’re potentially creating strains resistant to safe and effective treatments against the novel coronavirus and current mutations.
The long-term effects of this widespread vaccine rollout remain a mystery for years to come.
Dr. Malone, inventor of mRNA vaccine technology, warned that the vaccine rollout must end immediately due to antibody-dependent enhancement (where the virus becomes more infectious due to the vaccine).
And this SAGE report relays another reason to halt these experimental vaccines NOW:

It’s important to note that SAGE relayed the equally likely scenario where COVID-19 continues to mutate and become less lethal.
Thus far, current mutations have seen this scenario play out.
Despite the incessant media fearmongering, the Delta variant is more contagious but less lethal than the original strain.
Daily Mail covered the doomsday report:
Documents published by the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) today warned a future strain could be as deadly as MERS — which has a case fatality rate of 35 per cent — could be on the way.
No10’s expert panel claimed the likelihood of the virus mutating is highest when it is most prevalent — as is currently the case in Britain.
And in a downside of Britain’s hugely successful vaccination drive, the team warned the country’s greater levels of immunity may help speed up the virus’s evolutionary process.
Rolling out booster vaccines this winter and curbing transmission may help prevent a mutant strain occurring, according to the paper.
It also said ministers may have to consider culling or vaccinating animals which are found to be harbouring the virus, in order to stop it potentially picking up another mutation and jumping back to humans.
However, the SAGE report also claimed it was equally realistic that Covid will mutate to become less lethal over time.
Scientists unveiled the threat of a super mutant variant in a paper that looked at potential scenarios that could emerge in the not-so-distant future.
Experts — who weren’t named — said a future strain may be resistant to vaccines if it came about by the jab-resistant Beta variant merging with the more transmissible Alpha or Delta variants.
The process — known as recombination — could lead to a strain with ‘increased morbidity and mortality’.
The team admitted vaccines should work unless there was an extra-potent mutation that rendered jabs much less effective at blocking serious disease — which many experts say is unlikely.
But they said the extra lethality would be expected ‘even in the face of vaccination since vaccines do not provide absolute sterilising immunity.’
The prospect of a deadlier variant is a ‘realistic possibility’ and would have a huge impact on the UK’s death toll moving forward, the scientists said.
