Before Sir Dr. Jeremy Farrar got the plum job of CEO of the wealthiest foundation in the UK and one of the wealthiest in the world, he did research for Oxford University in Vietnam for 18 years. It seems curious how one job led to the other. Will (as is said to happen in Las Vegas) what happened in Vietnam stay in Vietnam? Or will internet sleuths tell us how Farrar was groomed in Vietnam for his current role?
Wikipedia describes Farrar’s childhood :
Early life and education
Born in Singapore, Farrar is the youngest of six children in his family. His father taught English and his mother was a writer and artist. Due to his father’s work, he spent his childhood in New Zealand, Cyprus and Libya.
Daddy was an English teacher who moved from one highly strategic location to another? Doubt it. Daddy was probably a spy. If so, Farrar probably comes by his cunning honestly.
He is a member of SAGE and CEPI, and has had previous dealings with key people like Soumya Swaminathan, who played crucial roles in suppressing the use of drugs for Covid, and is being sued by the Indian Bar Association over it.
Here’s a photo from Oxford:
Vietnam is a country where two other co-conspirators on the hydroxychloroquine suppression worked, too. All 3 had something to do with vaccine trials there. Hmmm.

When Dr. Martin Landray approached Jeremy Farrar about starting a large multicenter clinical trial in the UK, Farrar told him to talk to Horby. Landray did so, and Horby and Landray became the Principal Investigators for the Recovery trial. Landray was not in on the scheme to overdose patients with hydroxychloroquine, because when he was interviewed by FranceSoir, an online newspaper, he made several mistakes discussing the dose of hydroxychloroquine used. He simply had no idea about the overdoses. (FranceSoir knew.) Landray had been too busy to look up the dose, apparently, that he was responsible for giving to 1600 human guinea pigs.
Dr. Horby then attempted to give Landray cover in some tweets I read last May or June. Horby said France Soir did not transcribe what Landray said accurately. But France Soir had the recording, so that excuse didn’t fly. I blogged about this at the time.
FranceSoir further revealed how the two Recovery Principal Investigators went back and made changes to the trial documents to cover themselves.
Neither Landray nor Horby has so much as apologized for using borderline fatal doses in their subjects. Were the subjects’ families ever told? Probably not. This happened in the days when there was no visitation allowed in hospitals, and relatives of hospital patients usually had no idea about their treatments.
Horby is currently on the UK’s SAGE committee and is chairman of the NERVTAG committee in the UK, where he continues to exert major influence over the conduct of the pandemic response. Guess what? Two co-conspirators with Fauci/Farrar/Collins on those early February calls included Sir Patrick Vallance and Professor Michael Ferguson, who both serve on SAGE along with Peter Horby, keeping the UK locked down as well as covered up.
When the news about the Recovery trial’s fatal doses came out (I learned it from others on twitter) the hydroxychloroquine arm of the trial quickly ended, and Landray and Horby simply said the drug didn’t work. They acknowledged that there were about 10-20% more deaths in the hydroxychloroquine arm than in the placebo (“usual care,” a.k.a. no drug treatment arm) but have never acknowledged any mistakes, let alone wrongdoing. Using the published Recovery trial statistics, there were about 60 excess deaths over placebo in the HCQ arm (of 400 total) that we can say were likely secondary to an HCQ overdose, and perhaps more if the HCQ benefited some of those who survived the high doses.
Peter Horby, a physician, worked in Vietnam and overlapped there with Farrar. Both should have known the proper dose of antimalarial drugs, since it is likely they used the drugs for themselves, or were involved in treating malaria. Or they may have used mefloquine, another antimalarial with anti-Covid effects, which was also being suppressed but got no press last year.
The third interesting Vietnam connection is Rick Bright, PhD, the head of BARDA who worked with FDA to use the Emergency Use Authorization for donated Covid drugs in the National Strategic Stockpile as a means to interfere with doctors’ use of chloroquine drugs for patients. He made the mistake of bragging about this after Trump fired him, claiming that he had been responsible for saving the country from a dangerous drug that Trump had wanted used, and thereby incriminated himself.
Bright had worked in Vietnam, and therefore was probably very familiar with antimalarials; overlapped his time in Vietnam with Horby and Farrar in our cast of characters; and had the job of doling out $1.5 billion per year as head of BARDA. Bright had a critical role in suppressing the chloroquine drugs.
Bright was resurrected and made a member of the coronavirus task force by President-elect Biden last November. Like Daszak, Bright apparently knew his public criticisms of Trump were protected speech–protected by very powerful allies.
It is of great interest that Collins, Fauci, Farrar and Bright were all given the responsiblity to dole out huge pots of money. Rita Colwell, another Lancet letter signatory, had distributed huge amounts of federal largesse when she was Director of the National Science Foundation.
What is BARDA? It is a federal agency within DHHS:
“The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) provides an integrated, systematic approach to the development of the necessary vaccines, drugs, therapies, and diagnostic tools for public health medical emergencies such as chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) accidents, incidents and attacks; pandemic influenza (PI), and emerging infectious diseases (EID).
Together with its industry partners, BARDA promotes the advanced development of medical countermeasures to protect Americans and respond to 21st century health security threats.”
Here is what Sir Jeremy Farrar said about testing new drugs at the onset of the Covid pandemic.
“…Investing now, at scale, at risk and as a collective global effort is vital if we are to change the course of this epidemic. We welcome others to join us in this effort.”
-Dr. Jeremy Farrar, Director of Wellcome
And so the Covid Therapeutics Accelerator was begun, with core funding from :
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), Wellcome Trust, and Mastercard.
All 3 played important roles in the shaping of the Covid response for their own benefit. Mastercard used it to advance digital money, since handling money allegedly exposed people to the virus. BMGF and Wellcome used their research funding to suppress useful drugs and prolong the pandemic, while using the opportunity to test new drugs and new drug platforms, like mRNA, in which they were invested.
The Covid Accelerator website is hosted by the BMGF. While this organization did fund some hydroxychloroquine trials, if memory serves, at least 2 were shut down before completion, including one at the University of Washington, which is practically a subsidiary of the BMGF. The early Henry Ford hospital trial, which showed great benefit from hydroxychloroquine, never got any traction, though the doctors involved tried hard to be heard.
The Bangkok-based, Oxford-funded MORU COPCOV trial was put on hold in May by the UK authorities (is this why Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK government’s Chief Scientific Adviser, was brought in as a co-conspirator, to control the trials of beneficial drugs in the UK?) on the basis of the danger of hydroxychloroquine, even though only tiny prophylactic doses were being used. By May, apparently, the plan had changed, and the new goal was to shut down the hydroxychloroquine trials. While, on the other hand, some trials were set up under Wellcome and BMGF’s funding so their management and/or findings could be controlled.
The fabricated Lancet Surgisphere study, which claimed the chloroquine drugs killed, was published on May 22. Everyone has wondered how the Lancet could have published this obviously fabricated paper, but there has never been any explanation. Now, after the email revelations have emerged, I would bet money that Tony Fauci (shall we call him The Godfather of American medicine?) or Patrick Vallance made it happen.
Martin Landray was quoted in a BMJ article as saying the hydroxychloroquine doses in the clinical trial had been determined by Oxford professor, Bangkok-based Nicholas White, MD, an expert on malaria and its drugs, and principal investigator of the MORU COPCOV trial of HCQ for prophylaxis in medical workers. I think Landray was wrong. Nicholas White wrote a paper for the study that included detailed information on dosing of the chloroquine drugs, and nowhere did it recommend the excessive doses used in the Recovery trial.
However, epidemiologist modelers of malaria pharmacokinetics from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation were involved in advising The World Health Organization on the drug doses used in the Solidarity trial. Not by chance did both Solidarity and Recovery trials use the identical excess dosing schedule. Not by chance was Sir Jeremy Farrar intimately involved in both trials.
After I learned of the excess doses of hydroxychloroquine being used in the Recovery Trial, I searched the net to see what the other multi center trials were doing. That is how I discovered that the REMAP-Covid and Solidarity trials were also using poisonous HCQ doses to treat Covid. I contacted The W.H.O. and the heads of the REMAP trial in mid June 2020 and suggested they could be personally liable if they had not disclosed the known danger of the HCQ doses they were giving subjects in their trials. Solidarity immediately ended its HCQ arm. I do not know when REMAP ended theirs.
