The WHO is preparing the world for the next season of lockdowns, refusing to admit the emergency is over and recommending governments reimplement mask mandates.
“I’m concerned that cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, putting further pressure on [sic] health systems and health workers. I’m also concerned about the increasing trend of deaths. The emergency committee on COVID-19 met on Friday last week and concluded the virus remains a public health emergency of international concern,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom.
Adhanom continued, saying the Committee is concerned about subvariants of Omicron that most people have never even heard of because they’ve tuned out COVID news since the end of the lockdowns. He added that there’d been a rise in cases while simultaneously claiming there’s not enough testing or surveillance to determine the severity of COVID. Astounding.
He then bemoaned the drop in vaccine uptake, saying not nearly enough people are lining up to get their second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth… booster shots.
Adhanom recommends that countries return to the days of mask mandates, mandatory COVID testing, and mass surveillance.
“As hospitalizations and transmissions rise, governments must also deploy tried and tested measures, such as masking, improved ventilation, and test and treatment protocols,” Adhanom said. “… Governments should also work to reduce their reduction in surveillance, testing, and sequencing, and share antivirals effectively.”
He concluded by praising the vaccine, advising governments to once again go after the unvaccinated, and proclaiming that the pandemic is not over.
This proclamation of a return to the days of COVID hysteria just before the Fall comes only a month after the Canadian government chose to suspend some travel mandates rather than outright repealing them, all but explicitly stating they would take Canadians’ rights away again this flu season.
“If the situation takes a turn for the worse, we are prepared to bring back the policies necessary to protect Canadians,” warned Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, in June.
Now, the government is gearing up for the next phase, saying that the definition of fully vaccinated needs to be changed to ‘up-to-date’ vaccination, which means, in practice, getting jabbed every nine months indefinitely.
When those in power give up this nonsense is anyone’s guess.
