The World Health Organization has agreed to develop a ‘legally binding’ global agreement for response to future pandemics.
The agreement is to be ready in less than two years and will be developed by member states.
Here’s more via Daily Caller:
Members of the World Health Organization (WHO) agreed Thursday to develop a “legally-binding” agreement on a globally-led response for future pandemics.
The agreement came during the second meeting of the WHO’s Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) this week in Geneva, Switzerland. Member states agreed through “consensus” to develop the legally-binding international pandemic agreement by May 2024.
Global health authorities have complained that the world’s response to the coronavirus pandemic was too fragmented and piecemeal to be effective. Chief among the concerns has been that not enough resources were shared with the developing world from richer countries, namely vaccines and personal protective equipment.
“The importance of a legally binding instrument cannot be overstated: it will be our collective legacy for future generations,” WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Thursday.
The WHO made sure to emphasize in a press release that individual countries entering into the agreement will maintain their sovereignty to make decisions: “As with all international instruments, any new agreement, if and when agreed by Member States, is drafted and negotiated by governments themselves, who will take any action in line with their sovereignty.”
Yeah I don’t believe the ‘sovereignty’ guarantees for a second. Even if it is true, Democrats here love to cede our sovereignty to global bodies and would likely claim they are legally bound to do what the WHO says for the ‘next’ pandemic.
But even more importantly, the WHO isn’t to be trusted. This is the same organization that gave China cover even though it was clear that that’s where the Wuhan virus began.
This is also the same organization that redently decided sex isn’t limited to being just male or female, pandering to the transgender mob.
Unfortunately Team Joe Biden will be the one negotiating this agreement with other WHO members over the next two years, which gives me even less faith in it than I already had, which was zero.
