WHO director is upset 'conspiracy theories' may derail his global pandemic treaty

Tedros Ghebreyesus has been concern-mongering about a COVID-19 sequel, but it may not be enough to get his global treaty across the finish line.

WHO director general Tedros Ghebreyesus traveled to Dubai last week to hype "Disease X," the yet-to-be-released sequel to COVID-19 that is supposed to scare nations around the world into embracing an internationally binding pandemic treaty.

Although Ghebreyesus has fear-mongered about the hypothetical pestilence for several weeks, it appears he has finally let questions and concerns over his proposed remedies get under his skin.

In his Feb. 12 address, entitled, "A Pact with the Future: Why the Pandemic Agreement Is Mission-Critical for Humanity," Ghebreyesus lashed out at critics who have suggested his proposed "collective action" amounts to an affront to national sovereignty, suggesting that "conspiracy theories" put "the health of the world's people at risk."

Ghebreyesus painted himself as a prophet in the speech, noting that years ahead of the pandemic, he warned that the world would be ill prepared should a virus sweep the land.

"Six years ago, I stood on this stage and said the world was not prepared for a pandemic and expressed my concern at the time that a pandemic can happen any time," said Ghebreyesus. "Less than two years later, in December 2019, COVID-19 pandemic struck. And indeed the world was not prepared."

The WHO general director glossed over how the world was unprepared and in the dark largely on account of his organization and China. While Beijing covered up the spread of the virus, putting the world behind in taking action, Ghebreyesus reportedly provided smoke cover for Beijing's deceit at the outset; told the nations of the world not to restrict travelers from China or close their borders even though China had domestically; and then later granted Beijing a veto over the WHO's COVID-19 origins report.

In his address, Ghebreyesus noted that some "progress" has been made since the pandemic in the way of internationalist schemes and collective action, such as "improvements in surveillance, pandemic fund, and also the establishment of the pathogen sharing app and building capacities in vaccine production. ... Still the world is not prepared for a pandemic."

"History teaches us that the next pandemic is a matter of when, not if. It may be caused by an influenza virus or a new coronavirus," continued the bureaucrat.

Blaze News reported last month that amidst elites' talk of "Disease X," Chinese scientists crafted a coronavirus variant called GX_P@V that kills humanized mice 100% of the time, usually with late-stage brain infections. The scientists from the country on which Ghebreyesus has lavished much praise and little criticism said their mutant virus "underscores a spillover risk of FX_P2V into humans."

"Or it may be caused by a new pathogen we don't even know about yet or what we call 'Disease X,'" said Ghebreyesus, whose largely American-funded organization warned of an "infodemic" or a "an overabundance of information" in 2020.

The WHO leader suggested "Disease X" is not a novel term but indicated it has instead been used as a placeholder term since 2018 to describe pathogens that have yet to be discovered.

"COVID-19 was a Disease X," said Ghebreyesus. "There will be another Disease X or a Disease Y or a Disease Z. And as things stands, the world remains unprepared for the next Disease X."

The bureaucrat's preferred solution to this viral alphabet is the WHO Pandemic Preparedness Treaty: a legally binding pact "under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response."

Ghebreyesus is scrambling to get the treaty finalized ahead of a May 27 vote by the World Health Assembly. In the meantime, critics are pointing out the treaty's apparent flaws.

Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) noted at a press conference earlier this month that the so-called pandemic treaty suffers from "a slew of significant issues surrounding the proposed treaty — including lack of transparency, the back-room negotiations, WHO overreach and infringement on U.S. sovereignty, unknown financial obligations for U.S. taxpayers, threats to intellectual property rights and free speech, funding for abortion, and how the treaty will benefit China at the expense of the United States."

"Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, the WHO caved to the Chinese Communist Party rather than following the science," said Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), chairman of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus. "Now, the WHO wants to infringe upon our national sovereignty with their proposed 'pandemic treaty.'"

At the same press conference, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, suggested, "This is a global power grab using any future emergency as a justification to use that power."

Ghebreyesus claimed in Dubai that a "major barrier" to the successful implementation of his pandemic treaty is "the litany of lies and conspiracy theories about the agreement — that it's a power grab by the World Health Organization; that it will cede sovereignty to WHO; that it will give WHO power to impose lockdowns or vaccine mandates on countries; that it's an attack on freedom; that WHO will not allow people to travel; and that WHO wants to control people's lives."

"If these lies weren't so dangerous, these lies would be funny," said Ghebreyesus. "But they put the health of the world's people at risk, and that is no laughing matter."

"These claims are utterly, completely, categorically false," added the WHO head.

After suggesting that the internationalist scheme bolstered individual nations' sovereignty and would not empower the WHO to intervene in the domestic choices of various countries, Ghebreyesus underscored, "We cannot allow this historic agreement, this milestone in global health, to be sabotaged by those who spread lies, either deliberately or unknowingly."
