Nonprofit founded by CNN co-founder was PREPARING for the monkeypox outbreak in 2021
06/13/2022 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) was preparing for the monkeypox outbreak as early as March 2021, when it conducted a tabletop exercise simulating its spread through the United States.

The NTI is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization founded in 2001 by former Georgia Democratic Sen. Sam Nunn and media billionaire and CNN co-founder Ted Turner.

The NTI partnered with the Munich Security Conference (MSC), a nonprofit that holds a yearly conference on international security policy in Germany, during last year's virtual exercise, held on March 17. The NTI and MSC summarized their key findings and actionable recommendations in the tabletop exercise and released this report back in November. (Related: Monkeypox outbreak could be used to justify expansion of medical surveillance.)

To aid the NTI in its simulation, it gathered a panel of 19 experts, including representatives of the American and Chinese governments, officials from the World Health Organization and the United Nations and researchers from Big Pharma companies and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This simulation was also sponsored by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and his charity organization, Open Philanthropy.

NTI simulates release of "lab-enhanced" monkeypox virus

The fictional scenario was meant to simulate a bioterror attack similar to what happened in the 1995 movie "12 Monkeys," wherein a group of eco-terrorists released a deadly virus that wiped out most of humanity.

The NTI's scenario gamed out what would happen if a lab-enhanced monkeypox virus was secretly released and ended up spreading worldwide during a 19-month-long pandemic.


The simulation's imaginary launch date was May 15, with cases beginning to emerge a month later, resulting in more than three billion infections and 271 million deaths by the end of the exercise.

It should be noted that the simulation's launch date coincides with the start of the first international outbreak of monkeypox, which currently has around 1,000 confirmed or suspected cases across at least 40 countries, including the United States, which has 45 confirmed cases in 15 states and the District of Columbia.

NTI denies it predicted monkeypox outbreak

The NTI's decision to use monkeypox for its fictional scenario, along with the timeline it used, has led many to speculate whether the nonprofit predicted the current monkeypox outbreak.

NTI immediately denied all of the accusations leveled against the organization in statements released on the group's website and in interviews given by its leading members. It has gone so far as to accuse many of its detractors of spreading disinformation.

"Some social media activities have included disinformation about our exercise," wrote the group on its website. "The key takeaway from our exercise is not the specific pathogen in our fictional scenario; it's the fact that the world is woefully unprepared to guard against future pandemics."

"We wanted to select a pathogen that would be a plausible fit for our fictional scenario, and we chose monkeypox from a range of options offered by our expert advisors," said NTI Vice President of Global Biological Policy and Programs Jaime Yassif. "The fact that several countries are currently experiencing an outbreak of monkeypox is purely a coincidence."
