"According to the WHO Director-General, “The next pandemic is not a question of if, but of when. And we cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the past.” That is why WHO Member States are negotiating a new #PandemicAccord and amendments to the International Health Regulations, to strengthen the legal framework for the global response to pandemics.
What he doesn’t discuss is that the previous WHO RECOMMENDATIONS (via the accord and amendments) will now become MANDATORY OBLIGATIONS and WHO's Director-General will be allowed to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), or the potential for one, without meeting any specific criteria. PHEICS and potential PHEICs could be declared without the agreement of the concerned Member State or States. The WHO would then assume management of the PHEIC and issue BINDING directives to the Member States. WHO's DG could dictate measures including quarantines, testing and vaxs requirements, lockdowns, border closures, treatments, etc.

“For the sake of our nations and our future generations, we must exit the WHO and stop this supranational unelected body from dictating how we as a country will respond to future health threats.” Dr. Kat Lindley"
