WHO: Bigger Pandemic Than COVID Is Coming

“This pandemic has been very severe … it has affected every corner of this planet. But this is not necessarily the big one.”

The World Health Organisation has warned that a worse pandemic than COVID could be around the corner and that what we’ve seen so far in 2020 is “not necessarily the big one”.

With global lockdowns, international stripping of freedoms, and the decimation of small businesses and the economy on the whole, it is difficult to imagine how it could get any worse.

Yet the WHO is predicting that could very well be the case.

The head of the WHO emergencies program, Dr Mike Ryan, said during a media briefing that “this pandemic has been very severe … it has affected every corner of this planet. But this is not necessarily the big one.”

“This is a wake-up call. We are learning, now, how to do things better: science, logistics, training and governance, how to communicate better. But the planet is fragile,” Ryan added.

“We live in an increasingly complex global society. These threats will continue. If there is one thing we need to take from this pandemic, with all of the tragedy and loss, is we need to get our act together. We need to honour those we’ve lost by getting better at what we do every day,” he continued.

Ryan also stated that despite the vaccine, the virus is set to become endemic, and will never go away.

“The likely scenario is the virus will become another endemic virus that will remain somewhat of a threat,” Ryan said.

Professor David Heymann, the chair of the WHO’s strategic and technical advisory group for infectious hazards, added that “it appears the destiny of SARS-CoV-2 [Covid-19] is to become endemic, as have four other human coronaviruses, and that it will continue to mutate as it reproduces in human cells, especially in areas of more intense admission.”

Elsewhere during the briefing, WHO chief scientist Dr Soumya Swaminathan said that the roll out of vaccines does not mean social distancing or mask wearing can go away.

“I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on,” Swaminathan said.

The comments come after Swaminathan warned that the restrictive lockdown measures won’t let up until “the end of 2021” when “population immunity” is achieved.

“It’s going to take till the end of 2021 till we start seeing some level of population immunity coming up in some countries,” Swaminathan said last week.

As we reported two weeks ago, The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), based in Sweden, has found that the majority of nations across the globe have implemented COVID related restrictions that have severely eroded the liberties of their citizens.

The study revealed that 61 per cent of countries have used restrictions “that were concerning from a democracy and human rights perspective.”

‘These [restrictions] violated democratic standards because they were either disproportionate, illegal, indefinite or unnecessary in relation to the health threat,” the group declared in its report.

If a greater pandemic is coming, as the WHO promises, then it is clear to see that such erosions of freedom will be amped up even further, if the same pattern is followed.

People on Volcano-Stricken Island Told They Won’t Be Rescued if They Haven’t Had the COVID Vaccine

Cruise ships will only evacuate the inoculated.

People on the volcano-stricken island of St. Vincent have been told by the country’s Prime Minister that they won’t be rescued if they haven’t taken the COVID vaccine.

Yes, really.

Cruise ships were dispatched to evacuate the island after the 4,000-foot high volcano La Soufrière erupted on Friday.

However, Ralph Gonsalves, the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, gave a press conference warning that those who hadn’t taken the jab would be left to fend for themselves.

“The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship,” Gonsalves said.

16,000 people are being evacuated from the ‘red zone’ areas of the island that are most at risk, but that number won’t include those who for whatever reason haven’t taken the shot.

“If people are willing to welcome you at a time of COVID-19, they will wish you to have the highest level of protection possible,” Gonsalves told the media.

According to local officials, some people don’t want to be evacuated because they are scared they’ll be forced to take the vaccine.

This is another example of how vaccination status is being used by governments around the world to deny people basic necessities, including being rescued from a natural disaster.

Numerous countries are preparing to implement vaccine passports which would deny the unvaccinated from entering certain venues, which could eventually extend to pubs, restaurants, cinemas and shops.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Says She Will Double Mask & Avoid Indoor Activities Even After Getting the Vaccine

Critics say such rhetoric is undermining confidence in the COVID shot.

Prominent figures are receiving criticism for undermining confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine by vowing to continue to wear masks and avoid normal activities even after taking the shot, with MSNBC’s Joy Reid being the latest example.

Reid said that even after taking her second coronavirus shot, she’d be too scared to return to any semblance of normality.

“I too am one vax down, but even when I get the second shot, I am too ‘scurred’ to be out there wildin. No flying and no indoor activities for me. Nope!” the MSNBC host tweeted on Sunday.

She followed it up by vowing to wear two face masks “for the forseeable future.”

In what appears to be some kind of bizarre enjoyment of mask mandates and lockdown rules, many of those who have proudly shared vaccine selfies have also vowed to continue to act as if nobody at all had received the vaccine.

This has led to assertions that such rhetoric will only serve to put young people off getting the vaccine since they will receive no benefit in terms of getting back personal freedoms.

“If you wanted to persuade people not to get the vaccine, one of the best ways to do it would be to tell people that it won’t improve or really even change their quarantined lives much if they get it,” tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald. “Regardless of intention, this is an anti-vaccine message spread by MSNBC.”

“Party of science” really having a hard time with the scientific miracle of vaccines,” noted Drew Holden.

Americans who have followed all the rules for over a year, worn masks and took or plan on taking the vaccine bought the line that things would get “back to normal” if they complied.

Now that celebrities and media figures are vowing to extend social distancing, mask wearing and avoid major events until God knows when, many are now asking what was the point?

Chile: Elderly Woman Denied Entry to Supermarket After Failing to Obtain Government Permission to Buy Food

Lockdown rules mandate ‘safe conduct pass’ to shop.

Published

Video Screenshot

A video out of Chile shows an elderly woman being refused entry to a supermarket because she didn’t obtain the necessary government permission to buy groceries under the country’s lockdown rules.

The clip shows the woman, who is apparently 100-years-old, appearing to be confused as she is denied access by security guards in uniform.

“Unfortunately government measures are not intended for the most vulnerable, not everyone handles the technology, not everyone has access to the internet,” tweeted Radio Villa Francia along with the video.

In Chile, people have to apply for a “safe conduct pass” online, which only allows them to buy essential food items twice a week between the hours of 5am and 9pm.

Under the country’s ‘sanitary quarantine’, citizens must request “temporary instruments that authorize people to carry out fundamental activities and stock up on essential goods and services” in their communes.

The elderly lady’s failure to obtain the pass may have been related to her presumed inability to navigate the Internet.

The video serves as a chilling reminder as to what could be introduced in the west once vaccine passports and Chinese-style social credit score programs are implemented.

In the UK, vaccine passports won’t initially be required to enter venues like pubs, restaurants and grocery stores, but the government refused to rule it out longer term in their planning document.

In China, citizens who allow their social credit score to dip as a result of committing relatively minor infractions are denied the right to purchase things like plane and train tickets.
