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.

South Australia Revokes Lockdown After Revelation One Person Lied to Contact Tracers

Respondents slam decision to lockdown based on flimsy evidence.

South Australia has revoked its draconian lockdown, which banned people from even walking their dogs, after it was revealed that just one person lied to contact tracers.

The lockdown took effect yesterday and banned people from leaving their homes unless for emergency medical reasons or to buy food.

Police even confirmed via Twitter that people who walked their dogs outside would be in violation of the law, prompting a huge backlash.

Now just a day later, the lockdown is set to be revoked after authorities admitted that the one person who sparked the decision had lied to contact tracers.

“South Australia Premier Steven Marshall announced the explosive finding during a Friday press conference, saying that the individual in question purposely misled contact tracers,” reports RT.

“Though he told them he had visited a pizza bar linked to a local outbreak only once, he in fact worked at the establishment and had spent several shifts there during the period in question.”

The government has now acknowledged that the man, who was initially blamed for being a ‘super spreader’, had in fact not been the source of what authorities claimed was a super-infectious strain of the virus.

“Their story didn’t add up. We pursued them. We now know that they lied,” said South Australia Premier Steven Marshall.

Maybe authorities should have confirmed the man’s story before announcing their draconian lockdown? Just a thought.

As of Saturday, the region will now move back into its previous lockdown tier, with many restrictions being lifted again.

Respondents on Twitter slammed the government for imposing the crippling lockdown on the basis of one erroneous case at a pizza place.

AOC Wants Government “To Pay People To Stay Home”

Radical leftists within the Democratic party want forever lockdowns

Extreme leftist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted a new stunningly bright idea Thursday night, posting that “To get the virus under control, we need to pay people to stay home.”

Yes, that is correct, an elected representative seriously wants the government to pay Americans to force them to stay inside.

AOC followed up her deranged suggestion by declaring that Republicans are mad at her for the suggestion, but really voted to do the same thing earlier in the year.

Ignoring the fact that it was Nancy Pelosi who advocated the biggest coronavirus slush fund, AOC continued her diatribe:

This is yet more proof that radical leftists within the Democratic party will be pushing Biden to implement even more stringent lockdown restrictions if he manages to fend off Trump’s legal efforts and take office.

GOP Senator Rand Paul has vowed to fight such measures with impunity. On Thursday, Paul doubled down on his pledge, labelling lockdowns as “arbitrary.”

“Let’s hope, in this case, the court will intervene,” Paul said in an interview with Fox Business.

“I’ve been calling my governor for months ‘DWP,’ drunk with power, because he’s taken this power without any consent from the legislature,” the Senator noted, referring to his state of Kentucky.

“…the edicts that are coming from the governor, and from the governor of Michigan, they’re completely arbitrary,” Paul urged, adding “They’re not based in any kind of science. There is really very little objective science to prove that any of this works.”

“They’re theater,” he said. “If you look at the cloth masks, 97% of virus-sized particles go through a cloth mask, so we’re kidding ourselves.”

Report: Government Spies Are Tracking Brits Movements To Check If They’re Complying With Lockdown

GCHQ spooks also tasked with waging war on ‘anti-vaccination conspiracy theories’

GCHQ spooks are monitoring the movement of British people minute by minute to check if they are complying with government restrictions, according to reports.

The London Telegraph (Paywall) reports that spies from Britain’s most secretive intelligence and security organisation, Government Communications Headquarters, have embedded a ‘cell’ within Number 10 Downing Street in order to provide Prime Minister Boris Johnson with real time information pertaining to the public’s movements.

The Daily Mail also reports on the development, which notes that GCHQ, normally tasked with spying on terrorists and foreign powers, has been turned on the British public to gauge whether people are following the COVID ‘rules’ or not.

The report notes that as well as tracking the movement of people, the spies are collecting information on “internet searches for holidays and jobs.”

A source told The Telegraph that the spying is aiding ‘better policymaking,’ concerning the coronavirus pandemic, and will be used in order to make a decision on whether the lockdown will be extended beyond December 2, even though Johnson insisted that it definitely wouldn’t.

The report also claims that the GCHQ has collected all the information from the maligned ‘Track and Trace’ app, and is ensuring that it is ‘anonymised’, so it cannot be accessed by ‘hostile states’.

The spy agency is also being employed to combat ‘anti-vaccination conspiracy theories’ being spread on social media, in relation to the pandemic.

Speaking anonymously to the London Times earlier this month, a source noted that “GCHQ has been told to take out antivaxers online and on social media. There are ways they have used to monitor and disrupt terrorist propaganda.”

The report noted that the spy agency was considering taking down websites and content that isn’t pro-vaccination, as well as ‘disrupting’ those creating the content  by “using a toolkit developed to tackle disinformation and recruitment material peddled by Islamic State.”

GCHQ has previously been embroiled in controversy where spying on the public is concerned, as it was revealed in 2013 by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, that the agency was scouring all online and telephone data in the UK via a program code named ‘Tempora’.
