The World Health Organization (WHO) is moving ahead with plans to enact a new international pandemic treaty, despite objections to the plan. The WHO director-general may already declare a public health emergency in any country, without the consent of that country's government. Dr. Mercola is concerned that the WHO would get the power to implement digital identities/vaccine passports, mandatory vaccinations, travel restrictions, standardized medical care and more. A US Department of Homeland Security contractor described vaccine certificates/ passports as driving "the whole field of digital ID in the future," adding they are "not just about COVID [but] about something even bigger" and that "once adopted for COVID [they] will be rapidly used for everything else."
Meanwhile, the World Economic Forum, African Union and World Bank, which created a $1 billion fund for "disease surveillance," are developing their own pandemic response mechanisms, including new cross-country vaccine passport frameworks.
The World Health Organization (WHO) is moving ahead with plans to enact a new or revised international pandemic preparedness treaty, despite encountering setbacks earlier this summer after dozens of countries, primarily outside the Western world, objected to the plan.
A majority of WHO member states on July 21, during a meeting of WHO's Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB), agreed to pursue a legally binding pandemic instrument that will contain "both legally binding as well as non-legally binding elements."
