The World Health Organization is at again. Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, in order to be prepared for the potential of yet another unknown pandemic, is calling on countries to sign on to the United Nations organization’s pandemic treaty.
What is ”Disease X”?
It is a placeholder name that was adopted by the World Health Organization back in February 2018 creating a shortlist of priority diseases to represent a hypothetical, unknown pathogen that could cause a future epidemic.
It is a term used to refer to some currently unknown infectious condition that is capable of causing an epidemic or if it happens to spread across multiple countries, causes a pandemic.
The term can be used to mean a newly discovered pathogen or any known pathogen with newly acquired pandemic potential. By the latter definition, COVID-19 was the first “Disease X.”
According to Ghebreyesus “The pandemic agreement can bring all the experience, all the challenges that we have faced, and all the solutions into one. And that agreement can help us to prepare for the future in a better way because this is a common enemy and without a shared response, starting from the preparedness you know we will face the same problem as COVID.”
The deadline for the agreement is May 2024.
The question, will Biden attempt to bring the United States into this treaty, conceding the rights of the people to the UN, the World Health Organization, and the World Economic Forum.
Since this administration has been in lockstep with these organizations in the past, we would have to assume that he will.
It should be noted that Congress must approve treaties.
