(Slay News) – Shortly before COVID-19 first emerged in 2019, Bill Gates’s organization and Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF) staged a coronavirus pandemic “simulation” event, according to reports.
Just weeks before the first cases of Covid were reported in Wuhan, China, the WEF and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation held the pandemic “simulation” called “Event 201” on October 18, 2019.
Event 201 was planned on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum’s January 2019 annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
The October 2019 event was a large meeting where the WEF, Gates Foundation, and several other invited organizations staged a drill to lay out an agenda for responding to a global coronavirus pandemic.
Chinese authorities first reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China to the World Health Organization (WHO) on 31 December 2019.
However, it’s likely the virus emerged several weeks before it was first reported to the WHO.
A novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was subsequently identified from patient samples.
Independent investigative journalist Jordan Schachtel recently uncovered details on the Event 201 simulation.
According to Schachtel, Tom Inglesby, the director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, helped to plan the event.
Inglesby announced on Jan. 23, 2019, that Event 201, in partnership with the Gates Foundation and WEF, would be held in New York City.
“Event 201 will shine light on need for pub health, global business, science, finance, security & political leadership to be fully engaged + working for common purposes to meet challenge of new pandemic,” he wrote.

The theme for the WEF’s annual meeting in Davos that year was “Globalization 4.0: Shaping A Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
On his Substack page The Dossier, Schachtel explains the significance of the event originating at Davos.
“The World Economic Forum has become the go-to narrative and ideas shop for the global ruling class, weaponizing campaigns for their ideological agenda that are now advanced by the world’s most powerful individuals and organizations, through slogans and movements such as ‘The Great Reset’ and ‘Build Back Better,’ among others,” he wrote.
“The WEF and its backers seek to impose an extremely authoritarian agenda upon humanity, under the guise of healing the planet from climate change.”
Schachtel noted that the first person to retweet Inglesby’s Event 201 announcement was Ronald Klain.
Since the pandemic first emerged, Klain has since been elevated to the position of White House chief of staff under Democrat President Joe Biden.
Along with his role at Johns Hopkins, Inglesby is now a senior adviser at Biden’s U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
