A group of Catholic cardinals and bishops has gone public in expressing their deep concern that the coronavirus pandemic is being exploited as a means of preparing for the establishment of a one-world government. In an online appeal published on May 7, they say they have reason to believe there are powers interested in creating panic among the global population, with the sole aim of permanently imposing unacceptable forms of restriction on freedom, controlling people and tracking their movements. The religious leaders say “the imposition of these illiberal measures is a disturbing prelude to the realization of a World Government beyond all control.”
In a highly significant development, Professor Luc Montagnier, the French scientist who shared the 2008 Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), has added his voice to those who believe the new coronavirus was created in a laboratory. Interviewed on the CNews channel in France, Montagnier asserted that the virus had been designed by molecular biologists. Stating that it contains genetic elements of HIV, he insisted its characteristics could not have arisen naturally.
