(RightIsRight.co) – In a move that has not only angered conservatives in the United States of America but also numerous countries around the globe, President Joe Biden and the Biden administration are attempting to hand the World Health Organization (WHO) even more power to wield during future pandemics.
As ZeroHedge notes in “International Opposition Grows To Biden Granting WHO Pandemic Powers“:
“As previously reported by The Epoch Times, Biden’s 13 proposed amendments to the UN’s International Health Regulations (IHR) that govern WHO operations grant broad new powers to Director-General Tedros Adhanhom Ghebreysus, a former Ethiopian government minister who has been in the role since 2017.” [emphasis added]
How significant would the new, expanded powers be?
“Under the proposed amendments, the director-general could declare a public health emergency in any country regardless of whether local officials agree with the declaration.
“Tedros also would be authorized to rely on evidence from sources other than those approved by the affected country as the basis of such a declaration.” [emphasis added]
The pushback has been swift:
“[T]he Biden proposals have sparked a growing furor in the United States among critics who contend the amendments would amount to ceding of some portion of American sovereignty to WHO in the event of another pandemic.” [emphasis added]
What is your opinion about President Joe Biden and the Biden administration wanting to hand the World Health Organization (WHO) more power during pandemics? Do you agree or disagree with giving WHO the power to declare a public health emergency in the U.S. regardless of whether U.S. officials agree with the declaration?
