WHO Demands Countries Not Impose Travel Restrictions to Avoid “Fear and Stigma”

Cherished sanctity of mass travel & migration must not be challenged despite coronavirus spreading.

Published

on

The World Health Organization has again warned countries against imposing travel restrictions to tackle the coronavirus outbreak, asserting that doing so would create “fear and stigma.”

Despite the coronavirus now infecting more than 20,000 people, with tens of thousands more suspected to be infected, the WHO is apparently more concerned with maintaining the relentless flow of travel and migration.

Director-General of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a statement that travel restrictions “can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit.”

“Where such measures have been implemented, we urge that they are short in duration, proportionate to the public health risks, and are reconsidered regularly as the situation evolves,” he added.

However, at least 22 countries that have already imposed travel restrictions apparently do believe that such measures have a public health benefit.

“This is happening at the same time as China is blocking travel to Macau and enforcing martial law almost nationwide,” comments Zero Hedge. “Since when did the WHO not err on the side of caution? This is stunningly irresponsible advice.”

Accusing the WHO of choosing money over people’s lives, the website added, “The WHO then proceeded to downplay the risk to public health and took pains to make it clear it doesn’t recommend placing restrictions on global trade & travel at this time. What?!? When we may be in dealing with a viral outbreak as (or more!) virulent than the Spanish Flu? (aka The Great Influenza).”

As we highlighted last week, the rhetoric is similar to that deployed in the WHO’s statement in which it declared the coronavirus outbreak to be a global emergency.

In their official statement, the organization cautioned against any actions that would “promote stigma or discrimination” and asserted that maintaining the “international traffic” of people was essential and should not be interfered with.

What would it take for the cherished sanctity of the mass movement of people to be challenged? A global pandemic? Hundreds of thousands of dead people? Is avoiding hurt feelings more important?

The mind boggles.

CNN Asks Why Testosterone & Sperm Counts Are Plummeting in Europe and North America

Says “science might worry that it’s heading toward extinction.”

Published

on

CNN has published an article asking why testosterone and sperm counts are plummeting across Europe and North America, saying that if sperm was an animal it might be “heading toward extinction in western nations.”

The article highlights how “Total sperm count in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand dropped by up to 60% in the 38 years between 1973 and 2011” and that more recent research shows the trend is continuing.

The article links the fall to diets made up of fatty and processed foods, but admits “no one knows for sure” the reason and that it could also be connected with “radiation, air pollution and chemicals in our food, clothes and water.”

The article opens with, “If sperm was an animal, science might worry that it’s heading toward extinction in Western nations,” a line which if it was uttered by a right-winger would be taken by many in the media as a dog whistle for white supremacy.

Despite admitting that sperm counts and testosterone are plummeting and that fertility rates amongst white women in the west are also on the slide, anyone who talks about the demographic decline of white people is automatically branded a racist.

America’s fertility rate currently stands at 1.8 births per woman.

From 2007 to 2011 the fertility rate in the U.S. declined 9% in the space of just 4 years.

In 2016, the U.S. fertility rate fell to 59.8 births per 1,000 women, the lowest since records began.

Fertility rates for white women were down in every US state in 2017, while among black and Hispanic women, fertility rates were up in 12 and 29 states, respectively.

For an added layer of irony, consider the fact that just a few days ago, CNN celebrated “the benefits of being single,” something that certainly isn’t going to encourage people in the west to have more children.

WHO Holds Secret Talks With Tech Giants To Stop Spread of Coronavirus “Misinformation”

Despite the fact that some things labeled “misinformation” turned out to be true.

Published

on

The World Health Organization has held talks with tech giants to stop the spread of coronavirus “misinformation,” despite the fact that some things once labeled “misinformation” have since turned out to be true.

The meeting was organized by the WHO but hosted by Facebook at its Menlo Park campus in California. Attendees included representatives from Amazon, Twilio, Dropbox, Google, Verizon, Salesforce, Twitter, YouTube, Airbnb, Kinsa and Mapbox.

According to the WHO’s Andy Pattison, an “infodemic” of misinformation has accompanied the coronavirus outbreak and big tech giants need to respond by censoring “fake news” content.

Both Facebook and Twitter already announced that they would remove content deemed to be misinformation regarding the virus, a dangerous new lurch to mass censorship given that what is considered “misinformation” is totally subjective and beholden to partisan bias.

Two clear examples of “misinformation” surrounding the coronavirus subsequently turned out to be true.

The first example was claims that China was hiding the true number of coronavirus victims, once labeled a “conspiracy theory” by the media but subsequently proven accurate on Friday when 14,800 new coronavirus cases were reported in a single day.

The second example was suspicions that the virus could have emerged from a bio-safety level 4 research lab in Wuhan.

This contention has been aggressively attacked by the media and big tech giants – Zero Hedge was even banned by Twitter for reporting it – but a new study by scientists at the prestigious South China University of Technology in Guangzhou has confirmed that “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”

Chinese dissidents and others have been defamed and in some cases imprisoned by authorities, but the media continues to treat any questioning of the official Chinese Communist Party narrative with disdain.

Senator Cotton: China Refusing to Hand Over Evidence About Wuhan BioLab

New report says lab was likely source of coronavirus outbreak.

Published

on

Senator Tom Cotton says that China is refusing to hand over evidence concerning the bio-safety level 4 research lab in Wuhan despite a new report from biological scientists at the South China University of Technology saying it may have been the source of the coronavirus outbreak.

During an appearance on Fox News, Cotton told Maria Bartiromo that new evidence confirmed the source of the virus was not the meat market in Wuhan.

“Here is what we do know. This virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market,” said Cotton. “Epidemiologists who are widely respected from China published a study in the international journal Lancet have demonstrated that several of the original cases did NOT have any contact with that food market. The virus went into that food market before it came out of that food market. So we don’t know where it originated… We also know that only a few miles away from that market is China’s only bio-safety Level Four Super Laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.”

Cotton said that China’s “duplicity and dishonesty” meant that questions needed to be asked about the lab but that “China right now is not giving any evidence on that question at all” and Beijing was being “very secretive” on what happens at the lab.

Cotton also accused China of consistently blocking American scientists from traveling to Wuhan to assist in discovering the origins of the virus.

A new report by scientists at the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, China concludes that “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”

One of the laboratories named in the report which was conducting research on bat coronavirus was located just 280 meters from the site of the Wuhan meat market.

For weeks, the media has demonized anyone who suggested the lab could have been responsible for the coronavirus outbreak as a dangerous conspiracy theorist peddling fake news.

However, now that CNN/NY Times journalist Ezra Cheung tweeted precisely that yesterday, one wonders whether they will begin to change their tune.
