Corporate media is ramping up the fear about bird flu ahead of the vote on WHO's pandemic plans


At the same time, the World Health Organisation is preparing for a vote on amendments to the International Health Regulations and a Pandemic Accord.

Given the opportunity, such as a bird flu pandemic, what sort of extreme measures would WHO decide to institute?

Please note: WHO was due to present two new texts for adoption at the 77th World Health Assembly being held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 27 May to 1 June 2024.  One is the amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) ("IHR"); and, the other is the Pandemic Accord, which has also been referred to as the Pandemic Treaty, Pandemic Agreement and WHO Convention Agreement + ("WHO CA+").  Both instruments are designed to do the same thing; WHO only requires one to be adopted to achieve their aims.  At the close of the third instalment of INB9 on Friday, it seems that due to a failure to agree on the text of the proposed Pandemic Accord, attention has shifted to "the way forward."

The WHO's Pandemic Treaty And A Bird Flu Crisis Are Both Arriving At The Same Time

By Michael Snyder, 22 May 2024

Health officials are issuing very ominous warnings about the potential for an H5N1 (bird flu or avian influenza) pandemic among humans at the same time that the WHO is preparing for a vote on the global pandemic treaty at the 77th World Health Assembly at the end of this month. 

The global pandemic treaty will give the World Health Organisation far more authority than it had during the last pandemic, and a lot of people are deeply concerned about how that power will be used during the next major health crisis.
