The WHO's Pandemic Treaty "Is Tied To A Global Digital Passport And ID System"

"Hey @elonmusk, can you also buy the WHO? It is currently owned by Bill Gates."
"I love Pinball Wizard! -- ElonMusk"

We must oppose this to maintain national sovereignty and democratic norms...

A clever play on words from the man that many are hoping will preserve
free speech on Twitter.

The WHO recently announced plans for an international pandemic treaty
tied to a digital passport and digital ID system.

Meeting in December 2021 in a special session for only the second time
since the WHO’s founding in 1948, the Health Assembly of the WHO
adopted a single decision titled, “The World Together.”

The WHO plans to finalize the treaty by 2024. It will aim to shift
governing authority now reserved to sovereign states to the WHO during
a pandemic by legally binding member states to the WHO’s revised
International Health Regulations.

In January of 2022 the United States submitted proposed amendments to
the 2005 International Health Regulations, which bind all 194 U.N.
member states, which the WHO director general accepted and forwarded
to other member states. In contrast to amendments to our own
constitution, these amendments will not require a two-thirds vote of
our Senate, but a simple majority of the member states.

Most of the public is wholly unaware of these changes, which will
impact the national sovereignty of member states.

The proposed amendments include, among others, the following. Among
the changes the WHO will no longer need to consult with the state or
attempt to obtain verification from the state where a reported event
of concern (e.g., a new outbreak) is allegedly occurring before taking
action on the basis of such reports (Article 9.1).

In addition to the authority to make the determination of a public
health emergency of international concern under Article 12, the WHO
will be granted additional powers to determine a public health
emergency of regional concern, as well as a category referred to as an
intermediate health alert.

The relevant state no longer needs to agree with the WHO Director
General’s determination that an event constitutes a public health
emergency of international concern. A new Emergency Committee will be
constituted at the WHO, which the Director-General will consult in
lieu of the state within whose territory the public health emergency
of international concern has occurred, to declare the emergency over.

The amendments will also give “regional directors” within the WHO,
rather than elected representatives of the relevant states, the legal
authority to declare a Public Health Emergency of Regional Concern.

Also, when an event does not meet criteria for a public health
emergency of international concern but the WHO Director-General
determines it requires heightened awareness and a potential
international public health response, he may determine at any time to
issue an “intermediate public health alert” to states and consult the
WHO’s Emergency Committee. The criteria for this category are simple
fiat: “the Director-General has determined it requires heightened
international awareness and a potential international public health

Through these amendments, the WHO, with the support of the United
States, appears to be responding to roadblocks that China erected in
the early days of covid. This is a legitimate concern. But the net
effect of the proposed amendments is a shift of power away from
sovereign states, ours included, to unelected bureaucrats at the WHO.
The thrust of every one of the changes is toward increased powers and
centralized powers delegated to the WHO and away from member states.

Leslyn Lewis, a member of the Canadian parliament and lawyer with
international experience, has warned that the treaty would also allow
the WHO unilaterally to determine what constitutes a pandemic and
declare when a pandemic is occurring. “We would end up with a
one-size-fits-all approach for the entire world,” she cautioned. Under
the proposed WHO plan, pandemics need not be limited to infectious
diseases and could include, for example, a declared obesity crisis.

As part of this plan, the WHO has contracted German-based Deutsche
Telekom subsidiary T-Systems to develop a global vaccine passport
system, with plans to link every person on the planet to a QR code
digital ID.

    “Vaccination certificates that are tamper-proof and digitally
verifiable build trust. WHO is therefore supporting member states in
building national and regional trust networks and verification
technology,” explained Garret Mehl, head of the WHO’s Department of
Digital Health and Innovation.

    “The WHO’s gateway service also serves as a bridge between
regional systems. It can also be used as part of future vaccination
campaigns and home-based records.”

This system will be universal, mandatory, trans-national, and operated
by unelected bureaucrats in a captured NGO who already bungled the
covid pandemic response.
