The US has officially notified the United Nations that America is leaving the World Health Organisation, and the process will be completed one year from now on July 6 2021.

However, Joe Biden says that if elected President, he will reverse the decision.

The Trump administration started the formal process of leaving the WHO this week, following the President’s fierce criticism of the health body as being under the “total control” of China.

A WHO official told reporters Monday that “We have received reports that the US has submitted formal notification to the UN secretary general that it is withdrawing from WHO effective 6 July 2021.”

The US gives more than $450m per year to the WHO and currently owes the body $200m, according to reports.

Democrats used the announcement to bash Trump’s coronavirus response.

Senator Jeff Merkley, the top Democrat on the Senate foreign relations subcommittee said the development is “a huge win for China and a huge blow to the American people”.

Senator Robert Menendez, the ranking member on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, charged that the move “leaves Americans sick & America alone.”

Joe Biden wrote “Americans are safer when America is engaged in strengthening global health. On my first day as president, I will rejoin the WHO and restore our leadership on the world stage.”

Meanwhile, the WHO itself stealthily updated a timeline on its website this week, admitting that China never reported its discovery of the coronavirus to the organisation, and that WHO officials learned about it independently when they were finally allowed to visit the country weeks after first requesting to do so.

Breitbart News reported that “The update came after Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee (HFAC) released an interim report on its investigation of China’s response after it discovered cases of the coronavirus in Wuhan.”

HFAC Lead Republican and China Task Force chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) said in a statement:

I’m glad to see the WHO and the Chinese Communist Party have both read my interim report on the origins of the pandemic and are finally admitting to the world the truth – the CCP never reported the virus outbreak to the WHO in violation of WHO regulations. The question now is whether the CCP will continue their false propaganda campaign that continues to claim they warned the world, or whether they will come clean and begin to work with the world health community to get to the bottom of this deadly pandemic.

Appearing on Fox News, McCaul charged that the WHO cares less about global health than it does about ‘appeasing China’:

McCaul says he has repeatedly tried to get information from the WHO about China’s response to coronavirus, but has been met with a brick wall constantly:

In May, scores of countries signed a resolution collectively calling for an independent investigation into the origin of the coronavirus and the reaction of the World Health Organisation.

The WHO has come under intense scrutiny for repeating Chinese claims in January that the virus was not contagious between humans. The body then complained that it was not invited to take part in China’s investigations of the outbreak.

As we highlighted repeatedly, the WHO blocked doctors from urging countries to impose border controls to stop the spread of coronavirus and repeatedly told countries not to close borders, despite this being proven to be an effective way of controlling the spread of the virus.

While not addressing the WHO specifically, President Trump posted several tweets Tuesday slamming the media and Democrats for not acknowledging improvements in the coronavirus situation:

Bill Gates Shocked by “Crazy Conspiracy Theories” About COVID-19

Says socials need to crack down harder.

Published

Microsoft founder Bill Gates says he is shocked by the “crazy conspiracy theories” surrounding COVID-19 and that social media networks should take more steps to minimize them.

Noting that the combination of social media and a pandemic is something that’s never existed before, Gates said “nobody would have predicted” the attention he and Dr. Fauci have received.

The billionaire said “really evil theories” about whether he had created the pandemic or tried to profit from it had been allowed to circulate.

“Do people really believe that stuff?” asked Gates, asserting, “We’re going to have to get educated about this over the next year and understand how does it change people’s behavior.”

Gates said that more work needed to be done with social media companies to “minimize” such discussion and that the Gates Foundation could also take steps to make sure it was “explaining what we were up to in a better way.”

This is not the first time that Gates has addressed conspiracy theories about COVID. He previously labeled them “crazy” in a September 2020 interview.

The philanthropist has asserted that the world won’t return to normal until there is widespread adoption of the vaccine and that lockdowns, masks and social distancing will continue throughout all of this year and into 2022.

Although many of Gates’ wealthy friends at the World Economic Forum are insisting that people in the future will have to forego property ownership, Gates himself has recently been buying up farmland in vast quantities.

“Experts” Now Say Americans Should Wear THREE Masks

Why not just a full Hazmat suit?

Published

on

Citing researchers at Virginia Tech, CNBC says that Americans should consider wearing THREE face masks in order to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

After Dr. Fauci asserted that wearing two face coverings instead of one would be “more effective” in stopping the virus, CNBC’s Contessa Brewer went even further.

“The experts keep telling us that wearing masks is really about protecting others from ourselves in the event that we are contagious, but you know if other people aren’t wearing their masks or they’re wearing them improperly, we need to protect ourselves,” she said as she began to put a mask on.

“So experts say you can double up with a tight weave fabric mask for added protection,” said Brewer while placing a second mask over her face.

She then cited Virginia Tech researchers who found that doubling up on masks can increase efficacy by 50-75% before announcing, “A three layer mask could block up to 90% of the particles.”

Brewer then pulled out a Chinese KN95 mask, which apparently has five layers and is so tight it leaves a mark on the face after wearing it.

Host Shep Smith then told viewers that they should chop off their facial hair too because that made masks ineffective.

Presumably, if “experts said” Americans could only venture outside while trapped in a giant bubble, people would comply without question.

The question also arises once again; If even wearing three masks doesn’t provide 100% protection against COVID, what’s the point in wearing one?

The notion of wearing three masks might not just be absurd, it could actually be dangerous.

During a discussion about whether people should wear two masks, CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida said, “three masks may be going too far, since that could interfere with the ability to breathe.”

As we previously highlighted, it went from wearing a mask to now wearing two masks being the best way to get virtue signaling social media clout.

Apparently, now even those people are irresponsible, potentially “killing granny,” and should be triple masking if they really want to prove they’re good people.

Conservative MP Calls For GPS Tracking of Brits to Ensure COVID Compliance

Electronic ankle bracelets next?

Conservative MP Jeremy Hunt has called for the government to use GPS tracking technology to ensure Brits are complying with COVID quarantine measures.

Under the law, Brits who re-enter the country have to self-isolate for 10 days before leaving their home for any reason.

However, the difficulties, both practical and financial, of complying with this mandate, mean that as many as 75% are not following the rules.

According to Hunt, this behavior is responsible for spreading the infection and he has called on the government to use surveillance technology to ensure that a compliance rate of 95% is achieved.

Hunt demanded, “Daily contact with those asked to self-isolate – using GPS tracking to monitor compliance if necessary as happens in Taiwan and Poland. People need to know how much this matters and if we cannot persuade them to comply at the outset we should keep trying.”

Presumably, this would mean giving government the power to track people’s cellphones in real time via backdoor access.

However, given that the individual could just leave their phone at home while they left the property, the only way to properly enforce the measure would be to literally tag everyone with electronic ankle bracelets.

Given the country’s zeal for authoritarianism and their clamoring for even more draconian lockdown measures, it’s not even outside the realms of possibility that could happen.

As we previously highlighted, a recent YouGov poll asked Brits if they supported, “The Government in [country name] using the mobile phone data of individuals to ensure they are complying with restrictions on movement outside of the home during a lockdown.”

45% supported the idea compared to 42% who opposed it.

Another idea was to force Brits to take daily selfies that were cross referenced with GPS data and facial recognition software to ensure they didn’t leave home.
