Not only are they going to take credit for the end of it all, they are also going to distance themselves from the militant enforcement of the vaccines that have ended up being garbage.
You're right about the first part but not the second. They need to take the credit for the eradication of covid too. It gives them a carte blanche to "eradicate" many more disease with vaccines. The big one is cancer treatment vaccines. It is supposed to train the immune system to fight off cancer cells. It's just another non-scientific idea which instead of finding the cause for cancer looks to treat the symptoms. I won't be surprised if they come up with some sort of vaccine for heart disease too. Once you've figured out the art of blaming the omnipotent virus, the sky is the limit.
A real cancer epidemic is just around the corner as the condition is about to become as common as the common flu so plenty will roll up their sleeves as they have been nicely conditioned to do so now. Humanity faces a self-made extinction in the next 50 to 100 years. It is the reason for the push of transhumanism. The psychopaths believe that they can transfer their souls to the cloud and live like that.
