WHO’s Push for New Pandemic Treaty

“Negotiations have begun to establish a globally binding agreement to combat future pandemics, raising concerns that such an accord would undermine national sovereignty and centralize too much power in the hands of the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations’ health agency. In a recent open letter, the World Council for Health, a coalition of scientists, doctors, lawyers, and civil society advocacy organizations, lambasted the idea as dangerous and illegitimate. ‘The proposed WHO agreement is unnecessary, and is a threat to sovereignty and inalienable rights,’ the council wrote. ‘It increases the WHO’s suffocating power to declare unjustified pandemics, impose dehumanizing lockdowns, and enforce expensive, unsafe, and ineffective treatments against the will of the people.’ Prominent health experts such as Drs. Pierre Kory and Astrid Stuckelberger have endorsed the council’s open letter and been outspoken against the treaty under discussion. The agreement would effectively create one world government under the guise of creating a standardized global pandemic response, according to Stuckelberger, a member of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva and Lausanne.”
