BOMBSHELL – $476 Billion Spent Globally on COVID-19 Test Kits in 2017-2018 BEFORE the Novel Virus Outbreak

Summary of Findings:

Evidence has been found on the World Bank’s WITS (World Integrated Trade Solution) platform that $476,718,343,280 (that’s BILLIONS) was spent by 121 countries worldwide on almost one billion kilograms of COVID-19 Test Kits in 2017 and 2018, long before the supposedly “novel” coronavirus emerged in late 2019.

These figures are pulled directly from the original sources listed in the below table — see link to download spreadsheet collating and sorting these data.

The implication is clear:

This massive global trade in COVID-19 Test Kits in 2017 and 2018 completely invalidates the premise of the Coronavirus Pandemic as caused by a “novel” virus that emerged from a Chinese “wet market” in late 2019.

The creation, approval, and distribution of COVID-19 test kits would have been impossible during 2017 and 2018, as there had yet been no infection of COVID-19 at that time. In 2017 and 2018, there were not yet any infected cases to provide viral sampling, and no research yet conducted to identify the genomic sequences used in the RT-PCR tests for SARS-COV-2, the virus alleged to cause COVID-19.

The data sets provide factual evidence that a global community has been planning for years for a COVID-19 pandemic.  

Be sure to download the spreadsheet below, which collates and sorts the WITS data by category and country expenditure.

The figures in the spreadsheet can be used by media, researchers, and the legal community to investigate:

  • Who are the accountable parties for directing this massive global trade?
  • Where is the spending of this money accounted for?
  • Global supply chain has MANY points of review and acceptance of product movement: Who at each juncture were involved in this trade, therefore had foreknowledge…and thus have known for months that the premise of this “pandemic” is false?

Data Sets for Both PCR as well as “Immunological” COVID-19 Test Kits

While researching the data provided by the WITS platform, I found two different “HS Codes” referring to different types of COVID-19 test kits. The HS codes used for COVID-19 items can be found here.

This document on the World Customs Organization website indicates that HS Code 300215 (specifically, 3002.15) is for “diagnostic reagents based on immunological reactions”, while HS Code 382200 (specifically, 3822.00) is for “diagnostic reagents based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) nucleic acid test.”

The data sets in the table above are for 2017 and 2018, showing import and export for 121 countries, for both types of COVID-19 tests:

  • Data for HS Code 382200 (immunological) COVID-19 test kits
  • Data for HS Code 300215 (RT-PCR) COVID-19 test kits

Examples of Data from the WITS Database:

Each of the six pages cited in the table above summarizes the top countries in trade for that category, for example the Export page for 2017 cites:

“In 2017, Top exporters of COVID-19 Test kits are Switzerland ($23,684,716.51K , 2,538,500 Kg), Germany ($17,464,406.19K , 7,242,210 Kg), European Union ($16,940,789.16K , 8,953,990 Kg), United States ($8,283,146.64K , 7,020,260 Kg), Ireland ($6,356,054.92K , 590,259 Kg).”

In 2017:

  • Switzerland exported 2, 538,500 kilograms of COVID-19 test kits.
  • Germany exported 7,242,210 kilograms COVID-19 test kits.
  • The EU exported 8,953,990 kilograms COVID-19 test kits.
  • The United States exported 7,020,260 kilograms COVID-19 test kits.

Note: The WITS database does not specify how many test kits are contained per kilogram.

Detailed Findings Shown in Spreadsheet Data

COST IN BOTH 1000 USD (AS REPORTED) AND CONVERTED TO $$USD

After pulling all data from the 6 source links above, these are the findings shown in my spreadsheet:

  • 2017 imports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits total $85,992,654.93 in 1000 USD; in other words — $85,992,654,930.00 (almost $86 billion).
  • 2017 exports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits total $97,578,209.84 in 1000 USD; in other words — $97,578,209,840.00 (approaching $100 billion).
  • 2018 imports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits total $104,042,414.65 in 1000 USD: in other words — $104,042,414.650.00 (over $100 billion).
  • 2018 exports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits total $123,022,634 in 1000 USD: in other words — $123,022,634,000.00 (over $123 billion).
  • 2018 imports for the PCR COVID-19 Test Kits total $31,856,382.86 in 1000 USD; in other words — $31,856,382,860.00 (over $31 billion).
  • 2018 exports for the PCR COVID-19 Test Kits total $34,226,047 in 1000 USD; in other words — $34,226,047,000.00 (over $34 billion).

WEIGHT OF MOVED PRODUCT, IN KILOGRAMS

After pulling all data from the 6 source links above, these are the findings shown in my spreadsheet:

  • 2017 imports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits totaled 27,842,184 kg.
  • 2017 exports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits totaled 37,136,035 kg.
  • 2018 imports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits totaled 39,690,220 kg
  • 2018 exports for the Immunologic COVID-19 Test Kits totaled 49,582,835 kg.
  • 2018 imports for the PCR COVID-19 Test Kits totaled 426,607,452 kg.
  • 2018 exports for the PCR COVID-19 Test Kits totaled 402,976,802 kg.

It’s hard to fathom these numbers. I have checked my math repeatedly. But of course, if you find an error in my calculations, do let me know and I will make updates accordingly.

Origin and Destination

These figures beg the question — from where (which companies) are all these tests coming, and to where (which organizations or governments) are they going?

A Few Final Words

The spreadsheet has individual worksheets for each of the export & import categories. It also includes a “Totals” page that sums up all categories, and a “Totals – For sorting” page where you can easily filter and sort without impacting the Total tallies.

On the “Totals – For sorting” page, they are currently sorted by overall cost and weight: have a look — it’s breathtaking.

I look forward to hearing what the larger community makes of these revelations.

  1. The claim is circulating that originally, WITS didn’t show any data about year 2017 for item 382200. This is what you say in your article – no 2017 records. However, it is impossible to substantiate that claim through WITS, or the Wayback Machine. I am looking for evidence to substantiate the claim that there was a moment where WITS didn’t show any data about year 2017 for item 382200. Do yo have any?

    • I don’t say this meanly, I have a few loved ones in my family and friends who are in your side.
      Hillary paid $6.5million and DNC paid $3.2 million total $9.7 million to create the Steele Dossier that Democrats used as basis for Trump’s collusion saga. Schiff kept, and still does insist that he has “evidence” of collusion and other things. It’s been over four years now and he still has not presented any evidence. Mueller spent $35 million of taxpayer money, had 19 Trump hating lawyers investigating, issued 500+ subpoenas, interviewed 2500 witnesses, scoured through 1.6 million documents and they can not find any evidence. There is none. It’s a manufactured hoax.
      I really feel sorry for all you leftists since all you have to go by is the Fake News Media and politicians like Adam Schiff and his sorry cronies. They are withholding the good news from you to make you miserable. Just look around at all democrats, they used to claim to be the party of Love, Peace, Tolerance. What happened, they are hateful, miserable, unhappy, mongers, burning buildings, looting stores and destroying their neighborhood businesses and their own neighbors lives. They are out to destroy the best country the world has ever known.
      Trump people are all happy and smiling and hugging and kissing and having a good time. Try to figure out what they know that you don’t. I know how you fee, many people have felt the same way but they found that just looking at the other side of the story they too became happy again.
