Dissecting "Disease X" and the Pandemic Agreement

• The Last American Vagabond - Derrick Broze

At the World Economic Forum's recent annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, a panel called "Preparing for Disease X" caught the eyes of researchers who are skeptical of the organization and their claimed mission of helping humanity and the planet. The panel included the World Health Organization's Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus; Shyam Bishen, member of the WEF Executive Committee; and Nisia Trindade Lima, Brazil's Minister of Health, among others.

"'Disease X' is a placeholder for unknown disease," Tedros explained to the panel. "You may even call COVID as the first Disease X, and it may happen again."

WHO Director-General Tedros referenced the WHO's Pandemic agreement discussions, stating that countries need to unite against a "common enemy".

"This is a common global interest, and very narrow national interest can get in the way," Tedro stated. "Of course, national interest is natural, but it's the narrow national interest that can be difficult and is affecting the negotiations even as we speak."

The WHO's 194 member nations are slated to meet in May to adopt some version of the WHO's pandemic treaty and the International Health Regulations (IHR). Recent drafts of the proposed treaty indicate that it poses a threat to national sovereignty and decision making. Fears of loss of sovereignty have led some nations to push back against the agreement.

On Monday the United Nations noted that the Pandemic Agreement may not be finalized in May as planned. The news came from a WHO "Informal Session" on the agreement and IHR. During the session Tedros stated that time was "very short" to find consensus. Tedros specifically blamed "conspiracy theories" for the lack of progress on the agreement.

"The IHR working group are operating amidst a torrent of fake news, lies, and conspiracy theories. There are those who claim the pandemic agreement and IHR will cede sovereignty to WHO and give the WHO Secretary the power to impose lockdowns or vaccine mandates on countries," Tedros stated. "You know this is fake news, lies, and conspiracy theories. You know these claims are completely false. You know the agreement will give the WHO no such powers. We cannot allow this historic agreement, this milestone in global health, to be sabotaged by those who spread lies."

Tedros claimed the agreement "will not and can not" cede the sovereignty of member states over to the WHO. However, the language of the most recent draft makes it clear that member nations are expected to be bound by the provisions within the agreement. As you will see in a moment, documents from the 2017 G20 meeting make it clear the IHR are intended to be followed by member nations of the WHO.

What is Disease X?

The phrase "Disease X" has been going viral since the announcement of the WEF panel. The corporate media and the fact checkers have already done their part to assure the masses that it's only "right wing extremists" who are worried about the talk of this unknown pathogen that could allegedly be "20 times" more deadly than the COVID-19 panic.

One of the reasons the internet is ablaze with talk of "Disease X" is because the public remembers the Event 201 exercise which took place in October 2019 and simulated a coronavirus pandemic sweeping the world 5 months before the world learned of what they would later call COVID-19. As TLAV has extensively reported, many elements of the Event 201 exercise became reality in 2020. Between 2020 and 2022, many people were banned from social media platforms for asking questions about Event 201.

Interestingly, Event 201 is also considered to be a test for "Disease X", and, as noted by WHO Secretary Tedros, COVID-19 could be considered the first Disease X. Now, after the WEF panel discussing the allegedly upcoming "Disease X", onlookers are wondering if the world should be prepared for another scamdemic.

So, where did the use of this phrase begin and what does it mean for 2024? This is a brief rundown of some of the various discussions of "Disease X".

WEF 2017

In January 2017, the World Economic Forum announced the creation of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, or CEPI. The launch of CEPI at the 2017 WEF meeting involved the Wellcome Trust, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation — both of whom had major roles in the response to COVID-19, providing hundreds of millions of dollars in funding.

At the WEF 2019 meeting — one year before COVID-19 emerged — there was also discussion of "Disease X" on a panel titled "Disease X: Confronting a New Era of Biological Threats". The panel was moderated by Jeffrey M. Drazen, Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, and included panelists Seth F. Berkley, CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and Jeremy Farrar, Director of Wellcome Trust, with closing remarks by Wang Chen, President of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences.
