WHO Pandemic Treaty

A worldwide pandemic treaty sounds like a good idea doesn’t it? A global response to the next pandemic might just make sense, or does it?

194 countries are in the process of signing up to the World Health Organisation (WHO) pandemic treaty. This treaty, in the event of a future pandemic would cede national powers to the WHO to manage the pandemic however they choose.

We have not long departed from a political union that didn’t suit us, and here we are about to sign away UK sovereignty to Dr Tedros, current Director General of the WHO.

So here is my concern with this proposal.

Who declares a pandemic? The World Health Organisation.

Who will implement the response to it? The World Health Organisation.

Who controls the WHO? Currently, China holds significant influence over the WHO (https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/02/china-coronavirus-who-health-soft-power/) and we all know how they have dealt with the pandemic.

Who funds the World Health Organisation? Currently (Spring 2022) the largest financial contributor to the WHO is The Gates Fountation. I am not sure when Bill Gates became a virologist or a pandemic response expert. He couldn’t prevent computer viruses on his computer systems, so my confidence in his ability to improve anyones health is limited.

If this treaty is signed and ratified, the potential will exist for a wide range of responses regardless of whether they suit the people or not.


China is still pursuing zero covid to the expense of their population. It is as fanciful as net zero in its ambition.

This treaty would in all likelihood prevent any country from following Swedens response. Light touch, shield the vulnerable and allow heard immunity to protect the population.

Here in the UK, 2020-21 all cause mortality can be seen in the data below (source https://www.ons.gov.uk/aboutus/transparencyandgovernance/freedomofinformationfoi/deathsintheukfrom1990to2020)

UK all cause mortality 1990-2020

Show me if you can where the pandemic was? These are the figures for England and Wales only, hence the total population of 59 million, rather than the 66 million + for the UK.

As you can see, up to 2008 the mortality rate per 100,000 was above our pandemic rate.

In 2020, 1 in 98 people died

In 2015, 1 in 109 people died

In 2000, 1 in 96 people died

In 1990, 1 in 89 people died

My point from this data is that the all cause mortality rate from Covid19 wasn’t worth the destruction of national economies and the racking up of many billions of debt.

We could, we should of protected the vulnerable while the fit and healthy kept working, kept the economy going.

In these interesting times it’s never been more important to stay connected with each other.

That is not the WHO way though. They are more in favour of complete lockdowns, zero covid target and national destruction.

Any Government that signs their country up to potentially full control by the WHO is committing an act of sabotage of their nation.

If the WHO Pandemic Treaty goes ahead then we are all in deep trouble.

The pandemic was no worse than a bad flu year. Yes, I know many people are suffering longer term effects for a variety of reasons, which is more serious than being just a flu, but in terms of all cause mortality, the numbers are no worse so far.

This treaty would give the World Health Organisation (funded by Bill Gates don’t forget) the power to declare a Pandemic, to implement the controls on you that it chooses and even to mandate medications to entire populations.

I find this quite concerning and believe that we the people should retain full autonomy over those that govern us.

(Yes, I know petitions are powerless, but if you don’t sign it you are silently complicit.)
