The Australian government COVID-19 leadership

The National COVID-19 Coordination Commission (NCCC) is a strategic advisory body for the national response to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic by the Australian Government.[1][2]

The NCCC was established on the 25 March 2020 by Prime Minister Scott Morrison to provide advice on public–private partnerships and coordination to mitigate the social and economic impacts of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in Australia.[3][4]

Executive Board membership

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the membership of the Executive Board of the NCCC to consist of leaders from the private and public sectors.[5]

Secretive Commitee

It is not public knowledge what exactly the National Covid-19 Coordination Commission (NCCC) is actually doing to further its objective of “mobilising a whole-of-society and whole-of-economy effort” to ameliorate the economic impact of the virus. Neither is the appointment process open, like how Neville Power came to be appointed to leader, and when and why; or how the rest of the NCCC commissioners, many of whom have connections to the fossil fuel industry, came to be appointed.

It is not public knowledge what records were is kept of the commission’s meetings and dealings, neither is by whom the NCCC was directed and to whom it would report, and when, and whether its recommendations would be made public. And how various other advisers to the commission, described as “appendages”, came to be appointed to their influential roles.[6]

Bill Gates connections

At least two of the commissioners have indirect ties to the (extensive) Gates network.

  • Neville Powers, the leader of the commission, was Managing Director and CEO of Fortescue Metals Group Ltd for seven years.[7] Fortescue Metals is owned by billionaire Andrew Forrest, who is one of Gates's friends in The Giving Pledge billionaire coordination network.
  • Jane Halton has a deep state functionary past, and participated in the Gates-dominated Event 201 pandemic simulation.
