GENEVA: WHO ‘ Pandemic Treaty ‘ Providing More Money for the Rich

#CoronavirusNewsDesk – The Slippery Slope of the WHO Pandemic Treaty: Prediction: If another “pandemic” can result in more power for the power-hungry, there will likely be another “pandemic.” Apr.14, 2022

This story is about the proverbial “slippery slope” as it pertains to the potential new World Health Organization pandemic treaty that may gradually, then suddenly pave the way for the end of national sovereignty as we know it. 

Some peasant philosophy

I am using words carefully because I want to be precise. One can easily don their 2019 hat and say, “Well, why I should I care about a WHO document? It’s just some cryptic, pointless formal thing, a bureaucratic project that exists to justify their salaries,” etc. And if I could somehow erase the past two years from memory, I would agree! (In the past, many unbearably boring documents birthed by the United Nations agencies served primarily to justify their salaries.) 

However, the past two years cannot be erased. Adhering to the WHO guidelines put countless innocent people on ventilators and killed them, and prevented many from receiving helpful medical attention—and that’s just the surface of the story! We are in the middle of what feels like a global color revolution, where submissiveness and not asking questions make you a good citizen, and “love of freedom” is suddenly an embarrassing and selfish ultra-right value. By the way, even the “reframing” of the previously highly marketable Western freedom didn’t happen overnight but instead, took some years and a very concerted effort! “Updates” to public perception are at the core of any major social change! 

Besides, “long-range plans made in secret” (borrowing Steven Newcomb’s term for “conspiracy”) do exist. They exist because human beings with extreme ambitions exist—and they usually like to lie and scam. In fact, we can easily describe the entire known history of the past few thousand years as a story of very successful scams: scams based on sincere illusions, scams based on blatant deceit—but scams none the less, in a sense that somebody had an arbitrary ambitious idea, made it into a cause, got some funding, whipped together a bunch of willing or unwilling men with arms—and here we are. A lot of things that many generations of people have believed in with religious fervor have never been true in the physical sense—but none the less, many choices by millions of people have been made based on those beliefs. A long conversation for another time! (If you are curious, here is a pre-pandemic essay of mine about that). 

And in this day and age, it may take decades to prepare various legal and perceptional frameworks for the “new normal”—and then one day, suddenly, something unexpected happens, and wow, look, amazingly, right there in the bushes, there is a white concert grand piano! It’s just sitting there for some reason, wow! Who would have thunk! And the next thing you know, the younger generation doesn’t even know the joys and the freedoms that what their parents took for granted, etc. The trajectory of deceit can be very very ordinary! 

Speaking of the Bushes … the extreme American “health response” of 2020 was made possible in part thanks to the “pandemic preparedness” plans developed during Dubya, when no one was looking or thinking about it. Which is to say that a framework developed when no one was looking or thinking about it became visible years later and profoundly changed our lives, so… 

And again, with Bush’s 2005 plan, one may say that there was no conspiracy, it’s just that he meant well, and one thing led to another… to which I say, same difference! Yes, the world is a very complex dance of many forces. And no, the world cannot be explained strictly as a primitive one-track conspiracy. However, everything in human interactions is driven by individual desires and choices, and it so happens that people with exuberant fortunes have more access to the tools that allow them to turn their desires into reality for all of us. So it doesn’t matter if it’s “one thing led to another” or of it’s a matter of fifteen people with access to trillions of dollars getting together and deciding to move in a particular direction. Both can be true at the same time! 

A side note:

(The public commentary period for the WHO pandemic treaty has ended. If my nose is correct, the critiques will be shoved based on the fact that the people who want more power, well, want more power. They are kind of enjoying it right now. Our leaders are temporarily bulldozing straight through any objections or conventional assumptions—and doing whatever they please, including what pre-2020 would have been considered unthinkable. And if someone complains, they just say the complainer is right-wing, or selfish, or demographically inferior, and should be ashamed of himself. A lame but highly successful technique!

Another side note: if you search for the phrase “WHO pandemic treaty” on DuckDuckGo, #StopTheTreaty comes up among the top results. On Google though no such thing exists. If you actually search for the phrase “stop the treaty,” on DuckDuckGo #StoopTheTreaty is the number one result. Google, on the other hand, tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the 1919 Treaty of Versailles!)

Here’s Dr. Tess Lawrie:

As you may know, the WHO is proposing a global pandemic agreement that would give it undemocratic rights over every participating nation and its citizens. Put simply, in the event of a ‘pandemic’, the WHO’s constitution would replace every country’s constitution. Whether your country’s elected government would agree or not, the WHO could impose lockdowns, testing regimes, enforce medical interventions, dictate all public health practices, and much more.

[The links to the WHO Constitution and basic founding documents—keeping in mind that the word “health” has unfortunately been hijacked without shame or mercy, and now this word provides a cover for whatever lucrative measure, product, or policy that the bureaucrats decide to promote!]

Urgent – my video call with the WHO this morningI just got off a call with the WHO that’s left me shaken, reaching for my affirmations and more determined than ever. As you may know, the WHO is proposing a global pandemic agreement that would give it undemocratic rights over every participating nation and its citizens. Put simply, in the event of a ‘pandemic’, the WHO’s constitution would replace ever…Read morea day ago · 375 likes · 184 comments · Dr Tess Lawrie, MBBCh, PhD​

The “swine flu” precedent

Thing is, the WHO already tried to pull off a huge vaccine-selling health crisis more than ten years ago but it didn’t quite work.. The vaccine-selling part did work very well because they managed to activate the purchasing agreements—but the “scaring the public” part kind of “flopped” that time around. All that happened was that the pandemic was solemnly declared, the agreement-participating counties purchased relatively large batches of subpar vaccines (see “narcolepsy fiasco”), and then the entire thing went away. 

Here is a 2010 Forbes article that says: “From the beginning the World Health Organization’s actions have ranged from the dubious to the flagrantly incompetent.”

And here is the report by the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly, titled, “The handling of the H1N1 pandemic: more transparency needed”:

“The rapporteur considers that some of the outcomes of the pandemic, as illustrated in this report, have been dramatic: distortion of priorities of public health services all over Europe, waste of huge sums of public money, provocation of unjustified fear amongst Europeans, creation of health risks through vaccines and medications which might not have been sufficiently tested before being authorized in fast-track procedures, are all examples of these outcomes.”

Now, one can say that maybe the WHO were just incompetently doing their best to prevent a potentially serious crisis—and in the philosophical sense, that, too, is possible. But they did conveniently changed the definition of “pandemic” just before they declared a pandemic…

From the British Medical Journal:

“WHO for years had defined pandemics as outbreaks causing “enormous numbers of deaths and illness” but in early May 2009 it removed this phrase—describing a measure of severity—from the definition.” [emphasis mine]

“Key scientists advising the World Health Organization on planning for an influenza pandemic had done paid work for pharmaceutical firms that stood to gain from the guidance they were preparing. These conflicts of interest have never been publicly disclosed by WHO, and WHO has dismissed inquiries into its handling of the A/H1N1 pandemic as “conspiracy theories.”

“A joint investigation by the BMJ and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism has uncovered evidence that raises troubling questions about how WHO managed conflicts of interest among the scientists who advised its pandemic planning, and about the transparency of the science underlying its advice to governments. Was it appropriate for WHO to take advice from experts who had declarable financial and research ties with pharmaceutical companies producing antivirals and influenza vaccines?”

And here is a 2019 lecture by Marc Van Ranst, Belgian Flu Commissioner, at the ESWI/Chatham House Influenza Pandemic Preparedness Stakeholders Conference. At around 13 minutes in, he brags about how he “misused the fact that that the top, top football… soccer clubs in Belgium inappropriately and against all agreements vaccinated… they made their soccer players priority people.” The audience laughs. 


I want to end the story with an interview with the inimitable Mary Otto-Chang from last year in which we talked about the infiltration of the UN, including the 2019 agreement between the UN and the WEF. Even though it’s an interview I posted before, it is well worth re-watching in the context of this new WHO pandemic treaty in progress. (Also, if you have the time, please check out the pre-pandemic documentary called, “Trust WHO.” It’s very good and completely non-sensationalist.) 

In conclusion, all this is very challenging but I believe that we are living in interesting times because we are equipped with an ability to deal with these interesting times. One day, we’ll look back and we’ll be healed. One day, we’ll be healed completely. I say a prayer for this day to come as soon as possible! May it be so.

“I think it’s pretty safe to assume that we are over the peak, but we still have some period of time when we’re stepping down from that peak that we could see changes in case numbers on a daily basis,” he said earlier today.

“The long weekend over Easter obviously saw a significant downturn in people who were turning up for testing so we’ll have to see what that looks like later in this week.”

He said the hospital system appeared to be coping with the current caseload, and efforts to secure additional beds have “progressed quite well”.

“Over the last month there has been some effort to identify some additional beds,” he said.

Northern Territory

The NT has recorded 475 new COVID cases, with the number of known active cases across the territory falling to just under 3,000.

Three people are being treated for the virus in intensive care, and 43 people are hospitalised with COVID in total.

SHANGHAI: #COVID19 200,000 Cases Are Positive Results Not Confirmed Case Why ?

#CoronavirusNewsDesk – Shanghai resident Jean Yang has been sceptical about the city’s daily #COVID19 case numbers — more than 95 per cent of infections are not counted as confirmed cases.

Tuesday 12 Apr 2022 at 8:43pm

The 30-year-old landscape designer, who lives on China’s equivalent of Wall Street in the country’s financial centre, said the official statistics were “too hard to understand”.

“How do they distinguish symptomatic and asymptomatic cases?” Ms Yang questioned from her apartment in Shanghai’s Pudong district.

“The data, at least in my opinion, is not credible.

“I can see those numbers every day on WeChat … But they don’t mean much to me.”

Between the start of March and Monday this week, 229,742 positive COVID-19 cases have been reported in the locked down city of Shanghai.

Local public health officials say that’s made up of 8,322 “confirmed cases” and 221,420 asymptomatic infections.

The Chinese government insists those who are asymptomatic are not confirmed cases.

It means China’s total number of confirmed cases is a fraction of what it would be if it counted the same way most other countries do.

“I think what it does is it gives a false sense of how widespread the infection is,” Dr Michael Toole, an epidemiologist at the Burnet Institute, told the ABC.

Dr Toole said the extremely high percentage of asymptomatic cases was also “not normal”.

“Saying that 95 per cent of all cases are asymptomatic is an exaggeration,” he said.

“I think by saying 95 per cent are asymptomatic and therefore only reporting 5 per cent, you distort the data.”

Dr Joshua Szanyi, a public health medicine registrar at the School of Population and Public Health at the University of Melbourne, also said the asymptomatic rate in Shanghai appeared unrealistic.

“It is quite a lot higher than currently what we think in Australia,” he said.

Dr Szanyi estimated that on current evidence the asymptomatic rate of Omicron in Australia and around the world was between about 33 and 50 per cent.

In a study published late last year in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA Network Open, researchers analysed data from 77 previous studies involving nearly 20,000 people who had been diagnosed with COVID-19.

They found only about 40.5 per cent of confirmed infections were asymptomatic.

Dr Szanyi said the way Australia counted cases was straightforward.

“In very simple terms, an asymptomatic case is simply a case of COVID-19, in which that person isn’t displaying symptoms,” he said.

“From an Australian perspective, we are accounting for people who have positive test results, even if they don’t have symptoms, as cases.”

What is behind such a high asymptomatic rate in China?

China has been questioned over its definition of asymptomatic, which differs from the World Health Organization.

Chinese state-owned media outlet CCTV published an explainer earlier this month on the difference between asymptomatic and confirmed cases.

It said an infected person with a positive test result “cannot be regarded as a confirmed case” if they don’t have symptoms “such as fever, dry cough, exhaustion, sore throat, loss of smell [taste], diarrhoea, and there are no features of pneumonia on CT imaging”.

The Shanghai Municipal Health Commission has published a similar definition in March.

Dr Toole said using a CT scan to define a confirmed case was particularly concerning.

“CT scans may not detect any change, even if the person has an active virus in the upper airways,” he said.

“The only time you would get a CT scan would be if you presented to an emergency room with symptoms, or you were admitted to hospital.”

The ABC has contacted the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission for further comment on how it counts cases and defines asymptomatic.

The credibility of China’s official case numbers has been questioned since the outbreak emerged in Wuhan in 2020.

A study published in late 2020 by the country’s official Centre for Disease Control and Prevention found more than 4 per cent of survey participants from Wuhan had COVID-19 antibodies in their blood.

Based on Wuhan’s population it means nearly 500,000 people may have contracted COVID-19 – 10 times greater than the official data.

Dr Toole said he believed Chinese authorities were confusing asymptomatic cases with pre-symptomatic cases.

“When you go out and you test a whole population, you’re going to pick up a lot of people who just got infected, and they haven’t yet developed symptoms,” he said.

“But they may go on to develop symptoms.”

Back at Ms Yang’s apartment, the anxiety about case numbers and food shortages continues.

“We need supplies, especially food, such as vegetables, milk, fruits, and so on,” she said.

South Australia’s daily COVID caseload has continued to decline, dropping by more than 1,000 on yesterday’s figure amid a major fall in testing over the Easter weekend.

The state today reported another 2,675 cases — significantly fewer than the 3,749 recorded yesterday.

However, the figure coincided with a 33 per cent fall in the number of people receiving PCR tests yesterday, compared to Good Friday.

Only 7,712 PCR tests were administered on Saturday — down from more than 11,000 on Friday and more than 15,000 on Wednesday.

The latest daily caseload is the first time SA has recorded fewer than 3,000 cases since March 15.

The number of people in hospital has increased by two, to 225, and includes 12 people in intensive care and one on ventilation.

There are currently 30,893 active cases, and there have been 350,464 cases in SA since the start of the pandemic.

No further deaths were recorded in the 24-hour reporting period.

SA Health said genome sampling indicated around 60 per cent of current cases were the BA.2 variant.

SHANGHAI: COVID19 Elderly Deaths Contradict Figures BBC Spoke to Relatives Who Said ?

#CoronavirusNewsDesk – Dozens of elderly patients at a hospital in Shanghai have died after contracting #COVID19 but official government figures claim no deaths in the city have been caused by the disease since 2020 BY Robin Brant BBC (Shanghai) News correspondent

The BBC has spoken to a hospital manager and had access to correspondence sent to relatives of patients who’ve died during the Omicron outbreak that is sweeping through China’s biggest city.

We’ve also had access to official documents that suggest at least 27 patients from a single hospital, who weren’t vaccinated, have died from what it called “underlying health problems”.

Shanghai is enforcing a mammoth lockdown as authorities try to contain a new wave of the virus. Most of the city’s almost 25 million population have been ordered to stay inside for three weeks.

The BBC has previously reported evidence that authorities in Shanghai are struggling to deal with the outbreak. We spoke to a nurse and a health worker at Donghai Elderly Care Hospital who, between them, described desperate attempts to help dozens of elderly patients, some of whom have died.

We’ve contacted several other care homes or hospitals for the elderly since then, after social media postings suggested there was evidence of widespread infections among hundreds of patients in 12 other facilities here.

One relative of a patient at another care home in Shanghai has told us that doctors and caregivers working there had informed her that everyone in the facility had tested positive. It has capacity for around 300 patients.

The Donghai Elderly Care Hospital is one of the largest of its kind in Shanghai

In a phone conversation a manager at Donghai Hospital told us: “Of course there would be deceased with Covid. [In] Shanghai the situation is like this. How could there not be any death[s] without Covid?”

In a letter sent to relatives of patients who’d died management at the hospital apologised and admitted a “lack of professionalism”. They also expressed their “deepest guilt”.

Official figures say there have been no deaths during the current outbreak across the city; none at all. 

China has a strict criteria for confirming Covid-19 cases, which includes evidence in patients of lung damage caused by the virus. This must be confirmed in a scan.

Any underlying health conditions is also considered before deaths are officially attributed to Covid.

One man whose 72-year-old sister died at Donghai earlier this month told us that he had struggled to get a full explanation from officials about the cause of death. 

He told us that she had tested negative in the weeks before she died on 3 April. But he was not able to get a record of her test results in the final days before she died.

The man said his sister was one of six patients in a room, five of whom died. He told the BBC that “the outbreak [was] so bad in that care home”. 

As far as he could tell the official record said “she died with Covid negative”. He said he would not go ahead with her cremation until he knew what the cause of death was.

Relatives of a 99-year-old woman who died on 1 April have also raised concerns about the cause of death, given that she tested positive in the final week of her life.

In social media postings seen by the BBC, with accompanying audio records, her granddaughter said the woman had been transferred to Jinshan Public Health Clinical Centre in Shanghai on 27 March, where she tested positive a day later.

She was treated for underlying health problems. Three days later she tested negative for Covid. A day later she died. The woman described her death as due to “aggravation of underlying disease due to Covid”. 

The BBC tried multiple times to contact authorities at Donghai and Jinshan regarding the various allegations, but was not able to get a response.

China is facing its most serious crisis since the virus first emerged here in early 2020, when the city of Wuhan was locked down and sealed off.

Despite efforts to limit the impact on the economy in the country’s financial capital the lockdown of Shanghai has continued way beyond the initial nine day period planned for. 

Authorities have used various terms to refer to the strict restrictions being imposed on people, calling it “static management” and “closed management”.

State media reported that President Xi Jinping said “prevention and control work cannot be relaxed”. The front page of the Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily said “persistence is victory”.
