RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – An intergovernmental task force is currently working on modalities for the revision of the treaties, in form of a global pandemic agreement also called Pandemic Treaty, between the WHO and the member states.
German MEP Christine Anderson recently informed that since March 1, negotiations have been underway to hand over – in the event of a pandemic – de facto governmental power over the Member States to the WHO.
The treaty changes aim to give the WHO de facto governing power over its member states in the event of a pandemic, without involvement or consultation with an tional governments or national parliaments.

Anderson had therefore already submitted a question for a written answer to the EU Commission a few weeks ago, she said on her Telegram channel.
She asked the Commission to what extent it would ensure that the principles of the people’s rule would be respected and that citizens would not be subjected to the arbitrariness of an unelected entity.
Michele Bachmann Dean, Robertson School of Government, Regent University adds: “This authority that they would be given would impact 99.4% of all the people in the world… The WHO would have the decision-making authority to intervene in the United States’ government policy and any nation of the world without our permission.”
“For instance, the lockdowns where you see 26 million people today locked down in Shanghai, China… the WHO would have the authority to be able to impose that here in the United States for whatever pretext they want. They don’t have to show data; they could do this. What this does, bottom line is it creates a platform for global governance, global governance through the WHO.”
On 1 December 2021, the 194 members of the World Health Organization (WHO) reached a consensus to begin the process of drafting and negotiating a convention, agreement or another international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.
An intergovernmental negotiating body held its first meeting on March 1(to agree on ways of working and timelines) and a second one by August 1 (to discuss progress on a working draft).
It will then deliver a progress report to the 76th World Health Assembly in 2023, with the aim to adopt the instrument by 2024. Many who favor the treaty believe that it offers the best way to increase political commitment from states to reform global health governance.
The World Council for Health (WCH), a coalition of scientists, doctors, lawyers, and civil society advocacy organizations, opposes the World Health Organisation (WHO)’s moves to implement a power grab in the form of a global pandemic agreement, while the world’s attention is diverted by the latest crisis.
The WCH considers the proposed WHO agreement not only unnecessary but a threat to sovereignty and inalienable rights. It increases the WHO’s suffocating power to declare unjustified pandemics, impose dehumanizing lockdowns, and enforce expensive, unsafe, and ineffective treatments against the will of the people.
