According to several reports, US President Joe Biden and the World Health Organization (WHO) are pushing a treaty that would require nations to bend the need to WHO when it comes to disease control.
Some allege that under the treaty, countries would essentially give up their sovereignty on pandemic issues.
People are describing it as a massive power grab by an unelected and unaccountable WHO bureaucracy, but Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says his state will have none of it.
There is “no way” Florida will ever support the World Health Organization’s (W.H.O.) global pandemic treaty, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said on Monday.
“We in Florida, there is no way we will ever support this W.H.O. thing … that’s not going to happen. No way,” DeSantis said during a press conference in Cape Coral, Florida.
“But you saw, I mean, you saw a lot of these elites advocate very pernicious policies,” he added, noting that “part of the reason people want to move here is because we rejected those policies, but they advocated very pernicious policies, including locking kids out of school.”
DeSantis’s remarks follow news of the W.H.O. pushing for the ratification of a Biden-backed “global pandemic treaty,” which would “give the W.H.O. tremendous increases in power and funding, transferring much of the authority for pandemic control from member nations to the U.N. agency,” as Breitbart News reported:
Of course, everyone trusts WHO
Fox News provides a bit of an overview of WHO’s actions during the recent COVID pandemic:
Since the very first cases of the coronavirus were reported in Wuhan, the W.H.O. slavishly ran interference for the Chinese government and did it in the most cartoonish and obvious way. First, W.H.O. claimed there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission of the virus. Remember this? They cited Chinese officials who were obviously lying, and we now know they were lying.
Then, when it became clear the virus probably came out of a Chinese government lab, W.H.O. sabotaged the investigation into the origin of the virus by appointing a gain-of-function researcher to lead the investigative team. Pretty shocking, if you think about it and to this day, the W.H.O. still has not acknowledged it did any of that, though it definitely did.
