"I think we'll get an accord in place if everyone realizes that our window before this next pandemic, this next health threat, is probably not far away."
Those were the words of U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra while speaking to journalists in Geneva, Switzerland last week for the 76th meeting of the World Health Organization's World Health Assembly. The statement is a reminder that world leaders and health bureaucrats who failed the people of the world during the COVID-19 panic continue to push unscientific theories and failed policies.
Becerra was among the heads of state and representatives gathered in Geneva from May 21 to 30 to discuss a wide array of public health issues. While the so-called "Pandemic Treaty" and International Health Regulations (IHR) were not officially on the agenda of the assembly, the topic was clearly on the minds of the various policymakers gathered in Geneva. The next round of negotiations on the treaty will take place in mid-June with with the goal of hammering out a legally binding agreement to be adopted by the WHO's 194 member nations by May 2024.
