[After his announcement on Monday 20th Feb 2018, that Wakanda would share its technology, King T’Challa held a press conference at which EbolaInfo was able to ask a question]
EbolaInfo: What did the Wakandans make of the Swine flu, Ebola and Zika virus epidemics?
King T’Challa: Our assessment was that all three had commercial or corporate interests, however we note that the so called “Ebola pandemic” also had military objectives relating to Africom and its need to establish bases in Africa. Our surveillance has seen increased secret missions by US and NATO forces in Africa.
We are also a bit puzzled by what we regard as a medieval practice, akin to blood letting for corporate and state interests. I am referring to your practice of injecting directly into the blood stream foreign contaminants. You call it vaccination!
To Wakandans, integrity is very important! Spiritually, mentally, bodily and nationally. Our approach is to strengthen the body’s own ability to destroy infections. What I mean is that we don’t tell the security guard to remember a long list of suspects. We focus on making our security guard strong enough to withstand all enemies. This means we nourish and strengthen that part of the immune system that actually destroys foreign agents. What you tend to do is expose your immune systems artificially to foreign contaminants which your immune systems are to weak to actually destroy.
We were never concerned about these so called bio-threats seeping into Wakanda, as we continuously monitor for genetically modified organisms and agri-poisons like Roundup. But more importantly the Wakandan people have very robust health due to our free national health care, nutrition., very low environmental pollutants and life style choices. We know our approach is better as fewer invasive medical procedures equates to increased bodily integrity and hence disease resistance.
EbolaInfo: Please, one more question…
King T’Challa: Sorry, someone else…
