WHO Blocked Doctors From Urging Border Controls to Stop Spread of Coronavirus

More lives could have been saved if travel bans were imposed earlier.

The World Health Organization blocked doctors from urging countries to impose border controls to stop the spread of coronavirus, it has been revealed.

While the organization was demanding countries impose zero border controls, it was also campaigning against the profiling of international travelers in order to prevent the “stigmatization” of Chinese people (hurt feelings).

We first reported on the WHO telling countries not to impose travel bans back at the end of January, when the organization released a statement urging against “any travel or trade restriction” while demanding countries not engage in “discrimination” in their handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

In early February, Director-General of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus re-iterated this in a statement in which he said that travel restrictions “can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma.”

Right up until the end of February, the WHO continued “to advise against the application of travel or trade restrictions to countries experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks,” despite the rapid spread of the disease.

It has now been revealed that medical experts who were urging countries to impose border controls were silenced.

“[WHO] actually decided not to go ahead with [travel ban recommendations] and not declare a global health emergency but there were a few dissenting voices,” reported Sky News Australia.

“So the official meeting records say there was a divergence of views but they won’t actually go into detail about who was trying to block it. But there were doctors there who wanted to issue travel bans and the World Health Organization blocked it.”

The effort to silence medical professionals from urging countries to enact travel bans was made on January 30 during a meeting of WHO bureaucrats and health experts in Geneva, Switzerland.

A Mount Sinai study found that New York City’s record-high coronavirus cases and deaths were “predominately” due to travel from Europe, meaning that many more lives could have been saved if borders had been closed down earlier.

But instead, the WHO insisted that maintaining the globalist principle of the international traffic of people was more important than stopping a global pandemic

No, the WHO is not corrupt. It is slandered by the US government because WHO will not pipe to the US tune.

TASS: Russian diplomat slams US accusations against WHO as politically motivated — According to the envoy, Washington’s claims “look especially hypocritical” because the US Americans “have a big say in the work” of this organization as being widely represented in all of its structures, including top ones GENEVA, April 15. /TASS/. The United States’ blame-shifting statements concerning the World Health Organization (WHO) are politically motivated and ungrounded, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Geneva Office and other Geneva-based international organizations Gennady Gatilov said on Wednesday, commenting on the US decision to suspend funding to that organization. “Such actions do… Read more »

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is comparable to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in how it is mismanaged. Both United Nation institutions are staffed by highly trained experts in their fields, but at the management level are staffed by corrupt and incompetent lackeys. The OPCW whistleblowers within the organisation proved this beyond a shadow of doubt with their recent leaks, of the corrupt practices at management level. The Director General of the World Health Organisation (Tedros Adhanom) also showed his complete mismanagement of his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. (The post of Director General should be… Read more »

The US government is slandering WHO because they cannot control and dominate this international institution, located in Geneva.

The World Health Organisation has been captured by Big Pharma for some time now, and is undoubtedly controlled by International Pharmaceutical Companies, and in particular the Vaccine producers, as it receives over half of it funding from this Industry. They have already used the WHO to fraudulently label the Swine Flu as a pandemic in the past, as the WHO is simply a subordinate of Big Pharma.

Maybe this is so, but I like WHO because they abstained from blaming China for the Coronavirus outbreak. I believe that this virus is a new biowarfare weapon of the USA to damage China. So I am thankful that WHO did not howl with the (US) wolves.

“but I like WHO because they abstained from blaming China for the Coronavirus outbreak” ——
That is very childish! I will give you the reason why The War Criminal Tedros Adhanom, did not blame China. The reason is the Communist Terrorist Party he belong to in Ethiopia is modelled after the Chinese Communist Party. Do are search for ‘THE CRIMES OF TEDROS ADHANOM’ and you will see yourself. This evil bastard should be hanged at a War Crimes Tribunal.
