would incentivize reporting "pandemics",
and see nations punished
An article in the UK's Telegraph from April 12th headlines:
It focuses on a report from the Panel for a Global Public Health Convention (GPHC), and quotes one of the report's authors Dame Barbara Stocking:
The GPHC report goes on to say that the current International Health Regulations are "too weak", and calls for the creation of a new,
Another article, published by the London School of Economics and co-written by members of the German Alliance on Climate Change and Health (KLUG), also pushes the idea of "accountability" and "compliance" pretty hard:
It recommends the involvement of "non-state actors" such as the,
...in the negotiations, and suggests the treaty offer financial incentives for the early reporting of "health emergencies":
It doesn't stop there, however.
They also raise the question of countries being punished for "non-compliance":
To translate these suggestions from bureaucrat into English:
In combination, these proposed rules,
Far from preventing "future pandemics", they would actively encourage them.
National governments who refuse to play ball being punished, and those who play along getting paid off is not new. We have already seen that with Covid.
Both Presidents died unexpectedly within months of that decision, only to be replaced by new Presidents who instantly reversed their predecessor's covid policies.
It's pretty clear what happened here, isn't it...?
Globalists backed coups and rewarded the perpetrators with "international aid". The proposals for the Pandemic treaty would simply legitimize this process, moving it from covert back channels to overt official ones.
Now, before we discuss the implications of new powers, let's remind ourselves of the power the WHO already possesses:
We have already seen the WHO abuse these powers in order to create a fake pandemic out of thin air... and I'm not talking about covid.
Prior to 2008, the WHO could only declare an influenza pandemic if there were "enormous numbers of deaths and illness" AND there was a new and distinct subtype.
In 2008 the WHO loosened the definition of "influenza pandemic" to remove these two conditions.
As a 2010 letter to the British Medical Journal pointed out, these changes meant,
If the WHO had not made those changes, the 2009 "Swine flu" outbreak could never have been called a pandemic, and would likely have passed without notice.
Instead, dozens of countries spent millions upon millions of dollars on swine flu vaccines they did not need and did not work, to fight a "pandemic" that resulted in fewer than 20,000 deaths.
Many of those responsible for advising the WHO to declare swine flu a public health emergency were later shown to,
Despite this historical example of blatant corruption, one proposed clause of the Pandemic Treaty would make it even easier to declare a PHEIC.
According to the May 2021 report "Covid-19 - Make it the Last Pandemic":
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus
actual WHO's Director-General.
Yes, the proposed treaty could allow the DG of the WHO (above image) to declare a state of global emergency to prevent a potential pandemic, not in response to one:
If you combine this with the proposed "financial aid" for developing nations reporting "potential health emergencies", you can see what they're building - essentially bribing third world governments to give the WHO a pretext for declaring a state of emergency.
We already know the other key points likely to be included in a pandemic treaty.
But all of that could pale in comparison to the legal powers potentially being handed to the director-general of the WHO (or whatever new "independent" body they may decide to create) to,
A "Pandemic Treaty" that overrides or overrules national or local governments would hand supranational powers to an unelected bureaucrat or "expert", who could exercise them entirely at his own discretion and on completely subjective criteria.
This is the very definition of technocratic globalism...!
