The World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a news conference this week that “some countries” are using boosters to “kill children.”
“So, if it’s going to be used, it’s better to focus on those groups who have risk of severe diseases and deaths, rather than, as we see, some countries are using to give [sic] boosters to kill children, which is not right,” he said.
The director’s comment, which begins at the 2:30 mark in the YouTube video, has drawn intense debate about his intended meaning, Christianity Daily reported.
The left-wing service Snopes rated as “false” the claim that Tedros said vaccines boosters are being used “to kill children.”
“He stumbled over the word ‘children,’ accidentally pronouncing the first syllable with a ‘k’ sound before immediately correcting himself,” Snopes claimed.
The WHO gave the same explanation.
“He repeated the same syllable, with it coming out ‘cil-children.’ Any other interpretation of this is 100% incorrect,” a WHO spokesperson told the BBC.
Despite his Ethiopian accent, Tedros sounds articulate and does not appear to stumble over the word “kill.”
In a slower version of the video, Tedros pronounces the words in a casual cadence without any indication that he mispronunced the word “children” and intended to correct it.

The American corporate media has almost completely ignored Tedros’ comment because it undermines the Biden administration and the pharmaceutical industry’s push to give children the COVID-19 vaccine.
Whether Tedros intended to say that some nations give “boosters to children, which is not right” or that they give “boosters to kill children, which is not right,” the message contradicts the official narrative.
No matter the way you hear the WHO Director’s words, he confirms that children cannot safely receive COVID-19 shots.
But Biden has ignored the world’s top medical expert’s advice.
“If you’re a parent, understandably, who waited to see how the first shots went with other kids before getting your own kid vaccinated,” Biden said, “you can stop waiting.”
“Six million children in our country ages 5 to 11 are vaccinated,” he said. “Get your children protected today — now.”
