WHO Illegally Extends Its Global Power, Experts Warn (Worthy News Focus)

By Stefan J. Bos, Chief International Correspondent Worthy News

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND (Worthy News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) has secretly and illegally taken steps to give the agency global powers to govern public health after its failure to push through the “Pandemic Agreement,” experts say.

The WHO revised existing International Health Regulations (IHR) guiding national pandemic responses when it became clear that its 77th World Health Assembly would disagree on the Pandemic Agreement, Worthy News learned.

The Liberty Counsel, a Christian non-profit legal group, said the WHO “bypassed protocol” to secretly pass a resolution that would enhance the WHO’s authority and dictate how nations report, manage, and cooperate in another infectious disease outbreak.

While the WHO claimed there was a “consensus,” it “illegally” enacted the new “legally binding” IHRs “without a floor vote contrary to established rules and protocols,” noted the Liberty Council.

Sources said only about one-third of member nations were present for the final approval session, and only 37 out of the 194 member nations supported the revised IHRs, including U.S. delegates.

Objections were only allowed after the approval where at least six nations expressed opposition, including Argentina, Belarus, Costa Rica, Iran, Russia, and Slovakia, added the Liberty Council, which closely monitored proceedings.

The Liberty Council quoted a report by scientist Dr. Robert W. Malone, a well-recognized physician, biochemist, and mRNA researcher best known for raising health concerns about COVID-19 vaccines.

SWEEPING AMENDMENTS

Malone said, “Sweeping IHR amendments were prepared behind closed doors, and then both submitted for consideration.”

He added that they were “accepted by the World Health Assembly quite literally in the last moments of a meeting which stretched late into Saturday night, the last day of the meeting schedule.”

After failing to pass the “Pandemic Agreement” on May 27, 2024, WHO Director-General Tedros urged the assembly to “try everything” to pass the IHR amendments, sources familiar with the talks said.

In response, 234 elected officials from 35 countries expressed “profound concern” and advised Tedros that any on-site revisions ratified before the end of the assembly would be “null and void.”

There have been concerns that any pandemic agreement could mean the ceding of national sovereignty during what the WHO considers a “public health emergency.”

The WHO has denied the accusations, saying member states have a big say in implementing policies.

However, Worthy News reported earlier that a recent draft of the failed agreement would have compelled the United States and other nations to lay the groundwork for entering into a global surveillance infrastructure.

‘ROUTINE IMMUNIZATION’

The member states must follow WHO policies on “routine immunization” and “social measures,” including lockdowns, which critics say have impacted churches and other institutions.

Critics say the WHO’s “One Health Approach” “equalizes the value of human, animal and plant life.”

It would require the United States and other wealthy countries to turn over 20 percent of vaccine supplies for global redistribution to poorer nations.

While called an “agreement, this pandemic plan is widely seen as a “treaty,” which would typically require the U.S. Senate to approve it with a two-thirds majority vote, the Livery Council said.

“However, by calling it an “agreement,” the administration of President Joe Biden is bypassing Senate approval “to unilaterally bind the U.S. to the WHO invariably ceding U.S. national sovereignty.”

With tensions mounting, it wasn’t clear what impact the new WHO measures would have in a world still reeling from the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
