(Dominick Sansone, Headline USA) The Biden administration is taking steps to hand over the country’s pandemic decision-making authority to the World Health Organization, the Epoch Times reported.
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra met with WHO Director–General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus earlier this month to lay the groundwork for a pandemic treaty under the banner of bringing “the world together equitably.”
The “zero draft” of the treaty grants the WHO authority in declaring and managing a “global pandemic emergency.”
This includes control over “[medical] treatments, government regulations such as lockdowns and vaccine mandates, global supply chains, and monitoring and surveillance of populations,” going all the way down to primary-care physicians.
The effect would be to create a world police state that issues medical decrees—including the mandate of newly developed and previously untested vaccines, as well as preventing doctors from prescribing any type of alternative non-vaccine treatments.
The treaty would need to be ratified by Congress in order to be legally instituted in the U.S. according to international law. However, a “provisional” stipulation means that it can be legally binding on signature countries before ratification.
This comes after the Biden administration experienced legal difficulties imposing mask and vaccine mandates during the COVID pandemic from the federal level. Health care is largely under the control of U.S. states.
The zero draft additionally calls for signees to implement “One Health surveillance” that maintains control over the control of medical information related to the pandemic.
This includes targeting and countering anything that the WHO declares to be mis- or disinformation.
During his tenure in the Oval Office, then-President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the WHO, citing its deep levels of corruption and complicity in helping China cover up the origins of the pandemic.
Upon taking over, President Joe Biden moved quickly to reenter the country into the international organization.
