Ron Patton | December 4, 2023

Last year, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation provided the opening remarks for the simulation session themed “Catastrophic Contagion” or SEERS 2025 which simulated a contagious pneumonia that would affect young people ages 3 to 14. Now comes an uncanny synchronicity—or is it? Chinese hospitals in recent weeks have reported an increase in respiratory illnesses, including “clusters of undiagnosed pneumonia” in Beijing, Liaoning, and other cities, as the World Health Organization put it. Children seem especially affected by it and some pediatric hospitals are already over capacity. Furthermore, doctors in parts of the U.S. are reporting a spike in child pneumonia cases similar to the outbreak spreading in China and parts of Europe. Could this be a replay of four years ago? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Dr. Lee Merritt about LOOKING THROUGH A GLASS YOUNG LUNG.



It never fails, just when you think everything is quieting down, and we can back to normal – more drama comes along and the media decides to use big bad scary words to get everyone to wake up and shudder all over again.

Your Panic attacks are warranted, because now we are told that we no longer await the terrors of the tridemic – but something called the syndemic.

The New York Institute of Technology campus in Jonesboro, Arkansas announced that COVID, RSV, and now Pathogens from China will lead us into a Syndemic.

A Syndemic is more than three pathogens playing hob with the medical industry.

Many so-called Medical experts are back to tell you that not only is this new Pneumonia spreading but they have “little doubt” that this winter’s COVID wave will be the highest the country has seen since last winter when Omicron spawn XBB.1.5, or “Kraken,” sent cases rocketing skyward yet again.

What is most disconcerting is that there is no mention of how the latest vaccines have side effects that include vaccine-induced Pneumonitis. This also includes white lung syndrome – the latest malady that is affecting young people in China, Europe and the United States.

I have in the past been accused of repeating myself and some listeners, don’t understand why I do it.

Well to be honest I have this fear that most people when they tune into the show, aren’t tuning in at the top of the hour—most are tuning in about halfway through the conversation, so sometimes they can hear things out of context. Some people only hear an hour of the program – which is unfortunate and an even bigger reason to subscribe to

That way you get to hear the whole show, and listen to some of the things we have talked about in the past.

So tonight, I have to warn you that some of what I am about to say tonight will be academic for some listeners, while new ones will be enlightened about the sustainability goals, which include depopulation, and a medical surveillance state that will include a massive genomic DNA database, to control our bodies and our health.

They learned so much from COVID-19 that they are ready for round two –and many things are going on that need to be exposed so that people can be prepared if things decide to go south – which if you follow the globalist’s playbook you will learn that there is a massive culling in the works and that it may bring long hardships to people in the future.

Again forgive me for the redundancy – but it needs to be reiterated to paint the bigger picture for a tumultuous future.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was part of Event 201, a working group that analyzed possible scenarios for a global catastrophe. There was a coronavirus pandemic drill in October 2019 organized by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum, and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Interestingly, the test was conducted two months before the coronavirus pandemic, which led to the identification of the disease COVID-19. On the 23rd of October 2022, the Bill Gates Foundation provided the opening remarks for the simulation session themed “Catastrophic Contagion” – or SEERS 2025. 

SEERS 2025 – simulated a Contagious pneumonia that would affect young people ages 3 to 14.

Now comes an uncanny synchronicity—or is it?

Chinese hospitals in recent weeks have reported an increase in respiratory illnesses, including “clusters of undiagnosed pneumonia” in Beijing, Liaoning and other cities, as the World Health Organization put it.

Children seem especially affected. Some pediatric hospitals are already over capacity, with social media users in China detailing wait times of more than 13 hours.

Such accounts elicit fear among many who experienced the trauma of the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, four years ago a mysterious respiratory illness started to spread in China, and a lack of transparency by government officials cost other countries precious time to respond to it.

The Chinese Pneumonia was not big news at the time. The general public then had no idea this illness would escalate beyond China into a full-blown “pandemic” that authorities at the World Health Organization would need drastic measures, including lockdowns, social distancing and even withholding rights of organizations, and an aggressive vaccination approach to retain it.

In a strange case of Deja vu it appears that there seems to be a repeat performance going on, but this time it is being reported that the mysterious pneumonia is now spreading in China– it has spread to Europe and as of Friday it was reported to be in Ohio.

In a press release officials in Ohio’s Warren County located between Cincinnati and Dayton shared an update on the outbreak there, noting 145 cases were reported in children aged 3 to 14 years old.

Doctors in parts of Massachusetts are reporting a spike in child pneumonia cases similar to the outbreak spreading in China and parts of Europe.

Not only is this above the county average, but it also meets the Ohio Department of Health’s definition of an outbreak;

In western Massachusetts, physicians are seeing ‘a whole lot’ of walking pneumonia, a milder form of the lung condition, which is caused by a mixture of bacterial and viral infections.

Interestingly enough, experts say there isn’t a connection between this outbreak and the one happening in China.

Authorities are saying that these cases of pediatric pneumonia — which some have referred to as “white lung syndrome” — most typically cause cough, fever and fatigue. Doctors say most cases of bacterial pneumonia can be treated with antibiotics and most don’t require hospitalization.

Officials also said the recent illnesses are “not suspected of being a new/novel respiratory virus,” but instead appear to be an uptick in the number of “typical pediatric pneumonia cases.”

White Lung Syndrome is well known for showing what are called Ground-glass opacities in X-rays. Areas of the lung that look like broken glass.

Recently, ground-glass opacities were seen in most patients infected with COVID-19. They helped classify the lung involvement in these cases.

There were also reports of Ground Glass opacities associated with tainted vaping oils from China — which resulted in an e-cigarette scare in 2019 where some vaping materials were banned.

For a while the whole Vaping scandal looked a lot like the Covid scare, with injuries and death counts being reported as a result of using Juul e-cigarettes and THC oils from China.

It seemed that the reports had seemed to subside — and then came the warnings of ground glass opacities happening with an unknown virus coming out of Wuhan China.

As we have seen in the press, there have been a series of articles coming out in the mainstream news mentioning a new pandemic coming. And now, we’re seeing upsetting news from China that has prompted masking and distancing in China.

Again, it looks like a respiratory illness not from a novel virus, but from clusters of overlapping common viruses. And this could be a replay of four years ago, although this time the health care enforcers, will be prepared, for the few people who dissent from the standard advice of the World Health Organization.

Even though places like England, Denmark, Ohio, and Massachusetts are being cautious… and are not jumping the gun yet — Others are wanting so badly to wield power over the populace yet again –as COVID-19 gave psychopathic leaders precedent for being Tyrants.

A rule that allows the state Health Department to lawfully order someone to involuntarily isolate or quarantine to control a highly contagious disease, such as COVID-19, has been reinstated in a unanimous decision by a mid-level appellate court.

Five Republican senators have urged President Biden to restrict travel between the US and China as the communist state sees a rise in pediatric pneumonia cases.

Senators Marco Rubio, JD Vance, Rick Scott, Tommy Tuberville, and Mike Braun called to “immediately restrict travel” as China has had a “long history of lying about public health crises.

The five men cited the COVID-19 pandemic as evidence, saying that China’s “lack of transparency” has “robbed” the US of “vital knowledge” in the past.

If history is any indication, we have cause to be concerned,” the letter read.

The World Health Organization has requested China share “detailed information” regarding the outbreak, which is largely attacking children

Another clue as to what the overall reaction is going to be can be seen by looking ahead to 2024.

The new pandemic treaty comes out in May of 2024.

For the first time in a legal document, this has raised the concept of ‘infodemic,’ which they give some cursory definition to. But essentially, the question on the table is: what to do in the light of future pandemics or emergencies when people are spreading false information on the internet?

There is also the setting up of genomic data transfers of not just pandemic pathogens of international concern, but potential pathogenic problems, which essentially opens up a Pandora’s box of countries potentially being somehow – at least through this treaty – legally obligated to start sharing various genetic data in ways that are not very well explained, at least in the draft documents that have seen so far.

Genomic Data transfers were unheard of 30 years ago, but as genomic research gained traction with the Human Genome Project, companies have been able to extract DNA in various ways — and there is a genomics database that can be used for bioengineering tests and gain of function exercises that can target people for certain diseases and genetic abnormalities.

Over the years, scientists have been perfecting their methods for collecting DNA and have turned their attention to environmental DNA, or eDNA.

EDNA was used in determining the effects of Depleted Uranium over Poland, Germany and England after recent attacks in Ukraine.

An inexpensive tool for ecologists, eDNA is everywhere — floating in the air, water, snow, food, your last cup of coffee. The eDNA technology is used in wastewater surveillance systems to monitor Covid and other pathogens.

A study demonstrated that scientists could recover medical and ancestry information from minute fragments of human DNA lingering in the environment. DNA of specific individuals can be recovered from spaces such as office buildings, apartment buildings, airports, and restaurants.

Recently, researchers descended on the small town of St. Augustine, Florida and, from a “soda-can-size sample of water from a creek”, recovered “enough mitochondrial DNA — passed directly from mother to child for thousands of generations — to generate a snapshot of the genetic ancestry of the population around the creek…. One mitochondrial sample was even complete enough to meet the requirements for the federal missing persons database. They also found key mutations shown to carry a higher risk of diabetes, cardiac issues or several eye diseases”.

Scientists assure us that such eDNA samples will only be used for good by helping to predict pandemics or uncovering mutations that cause disease within a community.

Yet, those same eDNA samples could equally be used to find and persecute ethnic minorities or people who are prone to certain illnesses. If you carry it a step further and into the realm of biowarfare, certain groups could purposely be infected with illnesses while the rest of the population would not.

This can explain the discrepancies between the Chinese White Lung pneumonia outbreak and the ones’ in Europe Ohio and Minnesota — all that is needed is a sample of eDNA and monitoring of the population –and you can set up and use a pandemic vector.

A tool to spread a virus or pathogen.

Vectors” are defined by the World Health Organization as “living organisms that can transmit infectious pathogens between humans, or from animals to humans.” Vectors are often blood-sucking insects, like mosquitos or ticks, which can become infected and pass pathogens on to other animals or people.

When clandestinely used infectious disease is just another manifestation of biological warfare that is ubiquitous throughout life.

The evolutionary relationship between hosts and pathogens is essentially a never-ending arms race. When a pathogen evolves a new toxin, the host evolves a response to it. Humanity has taken this arms race one step further by utilizing technology such as vaccines and industrial-scale manufacturing of antibiotics.

However, the microbes are fighting back. They are being programmed in labs to focus on certain age groups and ethnicities.

Scientists think they can control nature. But they have no idea the long-term consequences of their actions. As humanity’s natural immune system is destroyed by toxic chemicals, drugs, and the very technology that we are promised will save us, experts aren’t suggesting we return to natural remedies and a healthier lifestyle, rather we must ingest more and more of the synthetic drugs perpetuating our illnesses.

Those who get richer and more powerful thanks to the drug and surveillance industries, know very well the dangers this course poses for humanity, yet they keep doing it anyway. It is a way to keep the populace docile and under their control.

Any DNA floating around can be used by authorities to track the populace, to incriminate a person, or to biologically attack them.

Recent developments in synthetic biology—which the National Academy of Sciences defines as “concepts, approaches, and tools which enable the modification or creation of biological organisms”—pose a profound threat. Synthetic bioweapons can be engineered to target very specific populations or individuals.

Once your DNA leaves your body, it is no longer yours. What are the rules of privacy then?

They do not exist.

If authorities collect your DNA, it doesn’t just affect you, it also affects “family members and, in some contexts, communities. If they do a widespread genomic experiment — they may already know what pathogens your community can be vulnerable to.

These pathogens can be put in food, drinks, and even vaping tools… anyone wish to speculate how White Lung symptoms were found in people who used e-cigarettes? In Oils from China?

This leads us to the CDC’s announcement of its new Traveler-based Genomic Surveillance program.

International travelers arriving at participating airports can volunteer to self-collect nasal swab samples which are then shipped to a laboratory network. Samples that test positive for SARS-CoV-2 undergo whole genome sequencing to determine variants.

However, do not think this is in any way just about Covid. Covid was the excuse to set up a system tracking and monitoring ordinary citizens. The CDC and Gingko Bioworks are leading the Future of Disease Surveillance:

According to Ginkgo’s press release:

Concentric by Ginkgo, the biosecurity and public health unit of Ginkgo Bioworks, and XpresCheck by XWELL, are partnering to expand their work with the CDC to monitor more than 30 new viruses, bacteria, and antimicrobial resistance targets including several seasonal respiratory pathogens, such as influenza A and B, RSV, and SARS-CoV-2. The partners continue to help the CDC grow TGS’s capabilities to detect pathogens as early as possible, allowing for the best public health response.

The program expansion will launch at four of the program’s seven major international airports (New York, JFK, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington DC, Dulles).

The TGS program has proven to be an agile and beneficial asset to public health officials in the United States—quickly adapting to an evolving pandemic in real time since it launched in 2021. As of October 2023, TGS has enlisted over 370,000 travelers and maintains an ongoing enrollment of around 6,000 volunteer travelers weekly.

The program covers travelers from all World Health Organization regions and more than 135 countries. Since its inception, the program has sequenced more than 14,000 samples and made the genomic data available on several public health platforms to enable further analysis.

The expansion will enhance the program’s ability to monitor and change focus to identify priority pathogens. The TGS program can augment global surveillance systems, especially as testing and sequencing information becomes limited as COVID-19 monitoring wanes.

So, what is Ginkgo bioworks?

It’s a one-stop-shop that describes itself as “BIOLOGY BY DESIGN”. You can go on the website and “explore Ginkgo’s capabilities for therapeutics and vaccines, agriculture, nutrition and wellness, and more”.

Since 2015, when Gingko was the first biotech company to be accepted for seed funding by Y Combinator, Ginkgo has raised $429 million, which includes $275 million in funding from Bill Gates’s Cascade Investment and others. Ginkgo is reportedly now worth over $1 billion.

Ginkgo Bioworks is the leading horizontal platform for cell programming, providing flexible, end-to-end services that solve challenges for organizations across diverse markets, from food and agriculture to pharmaceuticals to industrial and specialty chemicals. Ginkgo’s biosecurity and public health unit, Concentric by Ginkgo, is building global infrastructure for biosecurity to empower governments, communities, and public health leaders to prevent, detect and respond to a wide variety of biological threats.

In 2017, Gingko acquired Gen9, where scientists “manipulate DNA” to create “new life forms that do things we tell them to do”. They are “building nanobot factories that will produce microscopic biological machines programmed to make things more efficient and effective”. They are “dissecting organisms and putting them back together to make biological nanobots that perform functions for their creator.

The Founder of founder of Gen9 is George Church, who in 2018, co-founded Nebula Genomics, a personal genomics company that offers a “whole-genome sequencing service”.

The company is developing its blockchain. It claims it will help you “decode all your genes and identify mutations”, “learn about the genetics of your mind”, “use genetic information to extend your life”, and so on. All of this can be yours, in exchange for your “genomic and personal data” so that you can “contribute to future discoveries.

Bill Gates is another one of those creators who is investing big in genomic surveillance and genomic sequencing, along with Gingko, the US CDC, and the African CDC.

It is going to get to the point where we cannot even breathe without our DNA being collected and analyzed. But don’t worry, it’s all for the greater good.



Dr. Lee Merritt began her medical career at the age of four, carrying her father’s “black bag” on house calls, along the back roads of Iowa. In 1980 she graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York, where she was elected to life membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

Dr. Merritt completed an Orthopedic Surgery Residency in the United States Navy, served 9 years as a Navy physician and surgeon, and has been in the private practice of Orthopedics and Spinal Surgery since 1995. She has served on the Board of the Arizona Medical Association, is past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, and was a medical Consultant on the Navy Research Advisory Committee. During that time she studied defense and readiness against atomic chemical and biological warfare.

    You’ve been censored Clyde? Some of the transcripts are missing.? an audio? I agree with you something’s coming ain’t gonna be good! What a coincidence just in time for the elections coming up? Probably wanna push some more Kool-Aid to the sheep? The fake news doesn’t want to report things I want to keep you in the dark! Keep digging Clyde! When we lose the first and second amendments always lost! Take care and enjoy life. It’s far too.
