The disease process caused by COVID-19 is best described by the following new disease name:
Editor’s Note: Wherever the term Coronavirus Syndrome appears in the Executive Summary below, it is being used as a shortened version of COVID-5G-Hypertoxicity Syndrome.
The Coronavirus Syndrome is not just a simple coronavirus named COVID-19 by the World Health Organization. It’s actually a far more complex pathogenic micro-organism and disease process than the medical authorities are aware of. More significantly, it is the biological etiology and environmental causation that must be correctly understood if Coronavirus Syndrome is to be successfully treated.
There are 3 primary elements of COVID-5G-Hypertoxicity Syndrome as stated in the new disease name.
First, there is the pathogenic micro-organism, that was intentionally weaponized in a U.S. military laboratory as a specific gene pool-targeted bioweapon called COVID-19, which was bioengineered to mutate to elude proper diagnosis as well as morph symptomatically to evade effective treatment.
Secondly, there is the overwhelming impact of 5G, 4G, 3G and other electromagnetic frequency signal ranges and microwave transmissions on vulnerable individuals with respect to triggering COVID-19, as well as sustaining and/or intensifying the disease process.
Thirdly, there is a global chemical geoengineering regime that sprays Chemtrails, as well as a Super-Vaccination Agenda, which contribute considerably to the state of Hypertoxicity of each individual who contracts COVID-19, the severity of which is determined by their toxic load or total body burden.
There are several other risk factors such as medical history, overall health status, medical ailments, health conditions, age, diet, etc. involved in the development of Coronavirus Syndrome. However, each of those potentially weighty risk factors is patient-specific and will not be addressed in this summary with the exception of the underlying health conditions and prevailing medical ailments.
Italian Authorities: 99% of Coronavirus Fatalities Had Other Illnesses and Underlying Conditions
After the top 3 causes, the most significant risk factors concern the prevailing medical ailments and complicating health conditions of a COVID-19 patient. All the evidence has born out that those coronavirus patients with certain illnesses and conditions, prior to contracting COVID-19, had a much higher infection rate and mortality rate.
5G & IoT
The three greatest clusters of Coronavirus Syndrome on each continent were located in 3 major cities which had already experienced what was essentially a military deployment of a 5G power grid. As follows:
“This is also why three of the most serious coronavirus outbreaks on 3 continents — Asia, Europe and North America — took place in major metro areas that had undergone advanced 5G roll-outs—Wuhan, China; Milan, Italy; and Seattle Washington, respectively. Each of these three “5G demonstration zones” have produced the highest COVID-19 infection rates and mortality rates in the world today.”
(Source: The Most Fatal Coronavirus Outbreaks and Intensive 5G Roll-outs Conclusively Correlate)
There is undoubtedly a direct correlation between the intensive deployment of 5G and the incidence of Coronavirus Syndrome. All the science has proven that the exceedingly powerful and harmful energies associated with a fully operational 5G system significantly weaken the human immune system. Therefore, people living in “5G Demonstration Zones” will inevitably be much more vulnerable to all the seasonal influenzas, and especially to the highly opportunistic and virulent COVID-19.
U.S. Government Has Known About the Serious Adverse Health Effects Associated with 5G for Decades, Hid the Scientific Research Reports from the Public
Some medical researchers have declared that 5G actually triggers COVID-19, which then sets into motion a unique disease process that manifests differently in each patient. Because there appears to be a bioengineered capacity for COVID-19 to mutate in vivo, the symptom set can change quickly or slowly thereby eluding proper diagnosis and effective treatment. The longer any patient is exposed to a 5G environment, the more severe the symptoms will be. Similarly, additional symptoms, some of which are quite unusual and life-threatening, will also emerge as the disease process evolves.
Not only does 5G seem to trigger the onset of the Coronavirus Syndrome, it also appears to cause an extraordinary mutation and morphing of COVID-19 into an altogether different coronavirus pathogen, which then lies latent in the body well after the patient has been cured. This is quite similar to Epstein-Barr virus which eventually evolves into EBV-Stage 4 after passing through Stages 1, 2 and 3 over decades of latency.
The extent to which a patient is exposed to the Internet of Things (IoT) poses an even greater challenge to their immune system. This is why so many cruise ships became floating hospitals so soon after the Wuhan outbreak (there was simply not enough time for Wuhan patients or carriers to board the affected ships). Not only was 5G fully operational on those quarantined ships, the cruise lines promoted their seaborne IoTs to all the younger passengers while the many of the older passengers suffered from immunosuppression or compromised health. As expected, the older folks suffered a much higher COVID-19 infection rate Then, when the first COVID-19 case was reported, the protracted period of quarantine on the cruise ships served to spread the coronavirus even more in the close quarters.
Undoubtedly, it’s the high re-infection rates of COVID-19 which illustrate the dramatic effects that a 5G environment has on either a carrier or patient. Those who leave the hospital as a cured COVID-19 patient and re-enter their same wireless IT space will invariably suffer a higher rate of re-infection. Some will eventually suffer double or triple re-infections in the same flu season.
KEY POINT: Every SOTN visitor, especially those suffering from a seasonal flu or the coronavirus, is strongly encouraged to read this short coronavirus coaching session about COVID-19 re-infections: FLASHBACK: COVID-19 Re-Infections Triggered by 5G, Wireless Devices and WiFi Environments — The Coronavirus Coach. Then, be sure to send it to everyone you know.
Incidentally, the Coronavirus Syndrome is emphatically not caused by a typical flu bug. COVID-19 is a highly sophisticated bioweapon that was deliberately bioengineered to be extremely opportunistic, predatory and pernicious. Hence, the best defense is to avoid infection, especially by keeping the smartphone off and hard wiring all IT devices at home and the workplace. But the most important move anyone can make is to strictly avoid all 5G super-hotspots and IoT spaces such as cruise ships.
Despite the apparent contagion, the right lifestyle and diet will keep COVID-19 at bay for most people. This type of coronavirus preys on a weak and/or sick individual whose internal environment is conducive to viral propagation and symptom proliferation. In any event, preventative measures ought to be taken immediately by those at greatest risk. And, it’s absolutely necessary to aggressively treat all symptoms, especially those that are overly incapacitating or vitiate normal bodily functions.
KEY POINT: Every resident on the planet should be taking all the precautionary measures they can reasonably take at this moment to avoid infection. See: Here’s How Everyone Can Avoid Getting The Coronavirus
There are other major pieces to this Coronavirus Syndrome puzzle that remain outside of any individual’s ability to control. For example, there are toxic chemtrail aerosols that are being sprayed incessantly in our skies. The immense volume of chemically-mobile aluminum alone is slowly poisoning all of humanity. So is the barium, strontium, lithium and other chemical contaminants that are released into the troposphere via the chemical geoengineering programs being conducted worldwide. See: CHEMTRAILS: A Planetary Catastrophe Created by Chemical Geoengineering
There has been a substantial intensification of chemtrail spraying operations over the past decade. The incidence of both Chemtrail syndrome and Chemtrail flu have seen an appreciable and alarming increase. The radical uptick in neurological diseases such as Autism spectrum disorder, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Myotrophic lateral sclerosis, Multiple sclerosis, Cerebral palsy, Muscular dystrophy, Epilepsy, Guillain-Barré syndrome and Bell’s palsy is proof that there are major environmental factors such as the unprecedented profusion of airborne aluminum which is a proven neurotoxin.
CHEMTRAIL SYNDROME: A Global Pandemic Of Epic Proportions
There’s only one way that the atmosphere could have become so permeated with so much chemically-mobile aluminum so rapidly: the nonstop chemtrail spraying of toxic aerosols worldwide. The real problem here is that the blood-brain barrier surrounding the olfactory nerve is not 8 cells thick; it’s only 4 to 6 cells wide which means that a LOT of aluminum is now going into the brain. Of course, bio-accumulation of aluminum is also taking place elsewhere in the human body where it will cause other serious diseases as well.
Before the Industrial Revolution, there was very little atmospheric aluminum. This toxic heavy metal had been safely locked up in the Earth’s surface (in bauxite) where it could do very little harm to the human bio-organism. With the advent of the coal-fired power plant industry, massive volumes of coal fly ash — a highly regulated waste product — was produced which contains a large percentage of aluminum oxide. So, what the chemical geoengineers decided to do was to put this hazardous waste product — COAL FLY ASH — into the chemtrail formulations because of its hygroscopic nature. See: U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails
KEY POINT: Some atmospheric heavy metals such as chemically mobile aluminum are highly hygroscopic causing the chemtrails to widen quickly after spraying, which will then develop into chemclouds before forming a sun-obscuring chemcloud cover. In this furtive manner, humanity is being regularly deprived of the natural vitamin D production that takes place when sunlight shines on the skin. Also, pathogenic micro-organisms such as the coronavirus will more swiftly proliferate in the absence of sunlight. After all, “sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.”
The essential point here is that everyone now lives under heavily chemtrailed skies and, therefore, is exposed daily to high doses of unwanted aluminum. The steady incorporation of aluminum into our tissues and organs has created a public health disaster of epic proportions. However, it’s the pivotal part that aluminum and other chemtrail contaminants play in the development of Coronavirus Syndrome that is of greatest concern today. Because of the neurological impairment that occurs at the cellular level with the onset of Coronavirus Syndrome, it can be stated that the ongoing chemtrail operations purposefully set the stage for this stealthily manufactured pandemic*.
*Really, we want to know why the CDC posted job notices across the USA for a Quarantine Program Public Health Advisor on 11/15/2019—2 months before the Wuhan outbreak?!
It has also been suspected that Chemtrail-disseminated ingredients are an integral part of the geoengineering scheme to fabricate tropospheric conditions that are much more favorable to running an efficient 5G paradigm. Those heavy metals and other chemical compounds were specifically chosen because they are good conductors for the necessary frequencies and energies that constitute a fully functional 5G power grid. Each of the major COVID-19 clusters to date have occurred in heavily chemtrailed cities, including the most recent clusters in the greater New York City area.
It should also be noted that there are certain components in chemtrail aerosols that were selected because of their capacity to either trigger or encourage the development of the various influenzas. Every flu season sees a considerable escalation of chemtrailing, particularly in urban areas, in order to stampede the residents into the pen of vaccine compliance. A bad flu will compel an unaware sufferer to receive a vaccination thereby increasing their toxic load.
While COVID-19 is the primary pathogenic micro-organism of Coronavirus Syndrome, it’s imperative to understand that it’s only one component of COVID-5G-Hypertoxicity Syndrome. It’s also quite important to comprehend that COVID-19 is just one of the many coronaviruses some of which are the cause of the common cold and other influenzas (See addendum below). But the real secret behind this weaponized virus can be found in its name. CORONAVIRUS BIOWEAPON MYSTERY SOLVED: It’s all in the name!
As the “CORONAvirus” name implies, once the crucial link is made between the coronavirus and 5G, it becomes clear that the whole human race is about to suffer a biblical scourge because of the countless 5G rolls-out presently taking place around the globe. Any advanced bioweapon that has undergone so many decades of exceedingly sophisticated bioengineering and is now turbo-charged via the 5G energy weapon system is bound to have awesome effect.

Not only that, many folks have been suffering terribly from various types of EMF illness and EMR disease and Microwave poisoning and Non-ionizing Radiation sickness and Electrohypersensitivity syndrome for many decades…totally oblivious to the real causes. Therefore, it could even be stated that, were there no electrical paradigm on planet Earth today, there would be no Coronavirus Syndrome in 2020.
Nevertheless, to properly understand the “who, what, where, why and how” narrative regarding the now notorious coronavirus, every reader is encouraged to consider the links in this extensive compilation of detailed exposés about COVID-19: BIOENGINEERED and 5Ged CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: What Everyone Needs to Know
KEY POINTS: It must be made clear that, to date, there has been no conclusive scientific evidence that proves the existence of COVID-19. Similarly, there has been no assurance whatsoever given by medical authorities or government officials, that a reliable diagnostic test is being administered to patients that have somehow tested positive for COVID-19. As always, governments everywhere have withheld the most basic information and essential data regarding this supposedly burgeoning pandemic. That does not mean there’s not a very real bioweapon at the root of this ongoing bioterrorism and global psyop; however, they clearly do not want the people to know what it really is. But the “real bioweapon” may just be the 5G weapon system. See: 5G WEAPONRY: Microwave Radiation Technology Being Deployed as Depopulation Warfare, Full Spectrum Dominance & Total Human Control (Video)
Special Note: Many folks are having a problem reconciling how the COVID-19 panic is a HUGE hoax, yet at the very same time a very real pandemic. Even though there is no scientific proof of COVID-19 or high-integrity lab tests to confirm infection, there is a new and deadly and virulent pathogenic micro-organism that was meticulously bioengineered to cause COVID-5G-Hypertoxicity Syndrome. In other words, this is not just a single viral bioweapon, it a complex bioweapon system that has been surreptitiously put into place over several decades. So, while the various GLADIO black ops and New World Order psyops may appear to working at cross purposes, or even mutually exclusive, they are not. This particular false flag operation and mass casualty event was concocted to be exceptionally confusing, just as the accompanying psychological operation was contrived to be awfully confounding. And so it is!
There is a modern-day malady that is not well known called Hypertoxicity Syndrome. It’s caused by the extraordinary and continuous bio-accumulation of every kind of toxin that humanity is now exposed to. It is also the gateway disease for many other types of much more debilitating and deadly diseases such as Morgellons disease.
Clearly, those who suffer from Hypertoxicity Syndrome will be much more susceptible to the Coronavirus Syndrome than those with a clean, non-toxic health profile. There are many and diverse contributing factors to that extraordinary state of hypertoxicity that very few are aware of. For obvious reasons, the elderly will always suffer from this condition much more than children, which is exactly why older patients are dying so quickly from COVID-19, and in much greater numbers.
Young people are simply far less toxic because they have had fewer years of environmental exposures. The extremely high toxic load of the elderly is due to the fact that they have experienced several more decades of bio-accumulation of countless chemicals, heavy metals, insecticides, toxicants, poisons, contaminants, pollutants, etc. Hence, there is a direct relationship between the total body burden and the susceptibility to COVID-19, just as there is to any other acute illness or chronic disease. Except that a hypertoxic internal disorder will encourage Coronavirus Syndrome to run rampant just as we have seen because of how opportunistic it was bioengineered to be.
Industrial pollution also provides many vectors of toxin dissemination, which has always contributed majorly to the ongoing worldwide epidemic of Hypertoxicity Syndrome. Just like Beijing, Wuhan is also infamous for its oppressive and unceasing pollution. Likewise, Milan is the economic powerhouse of Italy and hub of various industries to include “textile and garment manufacturing, automobile, chemicals, industrial, machinery, and publishing”. 
The preceding graphic says it all where it concerns the accelerated vaccine being produced in Israel. Because annual flu shots are already highly suspect in the causation of increasingly worse flu seasons, the special vaccine being formulated for COVID-19 will, in all likelihood, serve as a major trigger for the full-blown coronavirus disease process. There are other critical aspects to a coronavirus vaccine that are beyond the scope of this exposé such as remote-controlled nano-sized components which work in tandem with 5G 60 GHz millimeter waves. Irrespective of the multiple dangers and obvious risks associated with the Super-Vaccination Agenda, who would ever trust a vaccine manufactured in Tel Aviv?!
Perhaps the single greatest and most dangerous threat where it concerns hypertoxicity are the ever-expanding childhood vaccination schedules and annual flu vaccine programs. Particularly for the elderly, the yearly flu shot injects a panoply of biological and chemical toxins that are exceedingly harmful to their fragile and compromised bodies. This is exactly why so many older folks have disproportionately died from COVID-19. Their total body burden, after years of highly toxic flu vaccinations, is so high that the coronavirus disease simply overwhelms the entire bio-organism.
Most significantly, there are now strong indications that each successive flu vaccination will make any individual, no matter what their unique set of risk factors, MUCH more vulnerable to a COVID-19 infection. Some have even speculated that a variant of COVID-19 has been inserted into every flu vaccine. This is why 2019 saw so many state legislatures approve or attempt to pass so many draconian measures toward making all prescribed childhood vaccinations mandatory and without exemptions. These repugnant and treacherous legislative initiatives were obviously taken in preparation for the bioengineered coronavirus outbreaks in the United States especially.
The Super-Vaccination Agenda is a major piece of the overall plan to, first, toxify and sicken, then, control and enslave humanity. The highly detrimental vaccine programs being administered worldwide are quite possibly the main driver of Coronavirus Syndrome. Given the many adverse effects of vaccines, to include weakening of the immune system and triggering of various influenzas due to injection of viruses, the Super-Vaccination Agenda is certainly one of the main pillars of the scheme to bioengineer a full-blown coronavirus pandemic. A scientific research study, not funded by Big Pharma, on the direct correlation between COVID-19 outbreaks and local flu vaccination compliance will certainly reveal the truth of the matter.
SUPER-VACCINATION AGENDA: U.S. Government Colludes with Big Pharma to Poison the American People
It’s entirely true that there are many diseases and illnesses that plague humanity which are psychogenic to varying degrees.
Psychogenic disease (or psychogenic illness) is a name given to physical illnesses that are believed to arise from emotional or mental stressors, or from psychological or psychiatric disorders.
There is no better representative of a psychogenic disease than Coronavirus Syndrome. This Third Millennium plague is surely the ultimate example of how mainstream media-generated hype can literally create a fake pandemic followed by more network hyperventilation necessary to manufacture a panic.
There are many prongs to the multi-pronged pandemic/panic strategy that were implemented by the hidden directors, producers and screenwriters of Operation COVID Pandemic & Panic. Most of them are well beyond the scope of this exposé. However, there is one prong of this global psychological operation that cannot be ignored.
Fear of death and fear of terminal disease are probably two of the greatest fears experienced by most people. The perpetrators of Operation COVID Pandemic & Panic know this full well and have intentionally played on those primordial fears like never before. The ensuing collective stress — emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual — that has been artificially induced is unparalleled in post-modern history.
KEY POINT: Every staged panic has a Fearmonger-in-Chief. Today, that carefully chosen individual is the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases—Anthony Stephen Fauci. (See: FAUCI the FEARMONGER Goes to Work for the Globalists). The MO of every Fearmonger-in-Chief is to use utterly fake science, misleading data and false narratives to scare their audience as follows: Dr. Fauci is promoting totally fake science (Video).
Any psyop of this breadth and depth will only serve to amplify the negative vibrations that are being engendered worldwide both individually and collectively. Whole nations have been plunged into despair. Cities have been devastated. Large companies have been shut down as major corporations have suspended all operations. Small businesses have already been bankrupted as families have been paralyzed with fear and anxiety about the future.
THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE
Therefore, it’s now apparent that there is a HUGE experiment being undertaken to propagate the Coronavirus Syndrome as a fundamentally psychogenic disease in advance of it actually showing up wherever the perps have planned acts of bioterrorism. There are several reasons for this New World Order ploy to effectively imprison humanity, most of which are explained in this exposé: MEDICAL MARTIAL LAW: Is this how they plan to lock down planet Earth?.
Because every psychogenic disease relies on a critical mass of people buying into the CON, the best way to terminate this utterly staged panic is to share the truth. The most radioactive truths and incriminating facts always concern the WHO and WHY. As follows:
Nothing changes until those who secretly rule US are prosecuted for 9/11, JFK, OK City, 5G, Chemtrails, Vaccines, COVID-19 ….
Perhaps the most powerful piece of this fastidiously choreographed and orchestrated psyop is the inexorable push toward social distancing. Not only does this ploy separate each and every human being from the rest of the human race, it is a subtle form of “divide and conquer”. Everyone is now looked at as coronavirus-carrier and therefore to be avoided. Moreover, this type of abiding fear of both coronavirus and humanity breeds more fear and anxiety which will only further weaken the immune system.
What we are all witnessing is an ongoing series of bioterrorist attacks against nations large and small. Genocide, depopulation and threats of an ELE are all being methodically carried out by the New World Order globalist cabal. Hard-to-prove and extremely efficacious bioterrorism, in particular, is perhaps the easiest way for the globalists to kill so may birds with one stone.
While each of those naked crimes against humanity constitute mass murder, the ultimate NWO goals are many and diverse. In fact, the globalists have several reasons for perpetrating this crime wave of bioterrorism currently washing over the planet; hence, it ought to be quite obvious even to the uninitiated. See: OPERATION CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: 16 Reasons for the Deployment of this Devastating Bioweapon in 2020
As for who’s conducting this international crime spree operationally, it’s now clear that COVID-19 originated at the US Military’s bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick (which was shut down by the CDC in July, because of outbreaks). However, just because COVID-19 was bioengineered by the U.S. Military doesn’t mean this was an American-only black operation and C.I.A. psyop. In point of fact, China’s 9/11 in Wuhan was actually carried out by OPERATION GLADIO under the rubric of NATO (sometimes known as the “North Atlantic Terrorist Organization”).

What’s the salient point?
When anyone or nation is under withering attack, it’s imperative to react accordingly. However, very few are cognizant of the biowarfare that has been waged against humanity since the Spanish Flu of 1918.
“As a matter of historical fact, there have been numerous bioweapons released against certain nations and populations over the past century such as Asian Flu of 1957, Hong Kong Flu of 1968, Epstein-Barr virus, Human papillomavirus, Herpes simplex virus, Lyme disease, AIDS/HIV, Swine flu, Bird flu, Ebola virus disease, West Nile virus, as well as many of the Measles and Smallpox outbreaks. (Remember the Native American tribes that were deliberately wiped out via the Smallpox bioweapon during the 19th century.)”
(Source: PLANDEMIC! A Painstakingly Planned Pandemic and Staged Panic—Who & Why?)
Hence, the time has finally come for people everywhere to come together to terminate -FOREVER – this never-ending Biowar, the perilous 5G roll-out and the climate-changing Chemtrails.
COVID-5G-Hypertoxicity Syndrome is precisely what the name says it is.
The intensity of its manifestation is also a function of several other risk factors, each of which can be nailed down in any particular case by an experienced clinician and/or skilled diagnostician.
And, “YES!”, Coronavirus Syndrome is most definitely an ever-changing syndrome that can defy diagnosis and treatment alike. This’s why so many were dropping like flies before they dropped dead in Wuhan and Milan. The symptoms either intensify so fast, or unusual symptoms emerge so quickly, that the attending physicians are caught flat-footed. The patients, themselves, are then overwhelmed by the severity and intractability of the symptoms. In many cases, the combination of debilitating and often unfamiliar symptoms simply demoralizes them.
In light of these stark realities, the more aware that each person is about the key takeaways in this critical Coronavirus Syndrome analysis, the more effective their response can be. The health and well-being of our families and friends, co-workers and other acquaintances greatly depend on this vital knowledge. Truly, we are at defining moment of human history, and everyone is called upon to play their vital role. Those who have been blessed with the truth need to share it more than ever.
There is another enlightening and edifying perspective on this transparently staged pandemic/panic that’s well worth considering. See: Pulmonologist Wolfgang Wodarg, M.D. explains the how, who and why the coronavirus panic was created (Video)
Lastly, here’s how “every dark cloud has a silver lining“, even the gathering coronavirus storm clouds:
Will the staged coronavirus pandemic backfire and shut down the 5G roll-out?!
