Early pusher (2001) for obligatory confinement of the whole population in case of biological emergency.

Richard J. Hatchett, MD, is Chief Executive Officer of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), a partnership funded by NATO countries, big pharma, billionaires (through foundations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) and civil organizations (the WHO). CEPI has as target to finance and co-ordinate the effort to rush thorough vaccines in less than a year against high priority public health threats from pandemics or epidemics.

Hatchett was an early pusher, already in 2001 during the so-called "war on terror" for obligatory confinement of the whole population case of a biological emergency, and also regards the fight against Covid-19 as a similar “war”.


A graduate of Vanderbilt University and the Vanderbilt University Medical School, he completed a residency in internal medicine at the New York Hospital – Cornell Medical Centre and a fellowship in medical oncology at Duke University Medical Centre.


Prior to joining CEPI, Dr. Hatchett most recently served as acting Director of the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), after serving for five years as BARDA’s Chief Medical Officer and Deputy Director. At BARDA, Dr. Hatchett oversaw programs to develop medical countermeasures against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats, pandemic influenza, and emerging infectious diseases and led or helped lead the development of vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics for a number of emerging viruses, including the H3N2v and H7N9 influenza viruses, MERS, Ebola and Zika. [1]

Previously, Dr. Hatchett served on the White House Homeland Security Council under President George W. Bush and was a member of the White House National Security Staff under President Barack Obama. Hatchett was already recommending obligatory confinement of the whole population way back in 2001, during the the global war on terror (GWOT), also regards the fight against Covid-19 as a similar “war”.[2] This military plan was unanimously rejected by US doctors, led by Professor Donald Henderson of Johns Hopkins University. They stressed that doctors had never confined healthy populations before.[3]

He is a recipient of the HHS Secretary’s Award for Distinguished Service and a five-time recipient of the NIH Director’s Merit Award.


In an April 2020 article, he reinforced several themes in the official narrative, the alleged unique danger from covid-19 (rather than the economic havoc from the lockdown measures); shilling for "large sums of money" to big pharma; and the alleged (and rather suspicious) need for everybody in the world, especially poor people, to take this rushed trough vaccine:

"This pandemic is the biggest public health threat that humankind has faced in a century". It is wreaking havoc on societies and economies and it is an acid test for public-private partnerships. We need to move fast to unleash the funding required to develop vaccines. Delivering covid-19 vaccines for the world—at record speed—will take a collective effort. We must combine the resources and expertise of academia and the private sector with the ability only governments have to mobilise the political will and amass the large sums of money that will be required....Given the threat posed by covid-19 we must regard vaccines as a global good: a shared resource that is deployed for the good of all irrespective of a country’s ability to pay."[4]


He had his own article on Wikipedia, but at some time during 2020 it has been removed[citation needed].
