  • The WHO's Deceiver-General--A close look at Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

    04/21/2020 10:46:36 AM PDT · by SJackson · 12 replies
    Visit When President Trump announced that his administration would withhold all U.S. funding from the World Health Organization, pending an investigation of its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus promptly straightened the halo atop his head and proceeded to address the world in the sober tones of a selfless, afflicted martyr: “For now,” he said, “our focus, my focus, is on stopping this virus and saving lives. WHO is getting on with the job…. When we’re divided, the virus exploits the cracks between us.” But as a close look at Tedros’s handling of the current crisis...

    COVID-19 has us all thinking about public health, but looking back, there have been many pandemics before, and we persist in spite of them. As of April 15, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has reported 605,390 cases of COVID-19 in the United States. These have occurred across all 50 states and have resulted in 24,582 deaths. We are all feeling the effects of the pandemic. Schools are closed, businesses have shut their doors, and nobody knows what’s coming next. While COVID-19 is one of the largest pandemics of the 21st century, you might be wondering how it stacks up...
  • Oh My: WHO Director Was Exposed for Covering Up 2017

    The World Health Organization has come under increased scrutiny in recent months for its handling of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. Last night, Taiwan health officials released an email showing they warned the global organization the disease was spreading human-to-human in December. They also asked for cooperation and information. snip.. Led by Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO ignored the warnings on behalf of China and continued for weeks to regurgitate Chinese Communist Party propaganda about the virus. WHO officials also roundly criticized the United States for implementing a travel ban to and from the country. snip.. But it turns...
  • WHO Director Overseeing Coronavirus Response Covered Up Cholera Epidemics In 2013

    A week after a mysterious virus began to spread in China, the State Department enacted a level 4 travel advisory against the country on Thursday night. Citing the Coronavirus outbreak, the State Department advised U.S. citizens to not travel to China for any reason – and for anyone currently in China to leave as soon as possible. The State Department’s decision comes on the heels of the World Health Organization declaring the Coronavirus a global emergency. The declaration from the WHO seems suspiciously delayed – announced a full week after the virus accelerated spread in China. However, if you look...

    President Trump, in an interview on “Hannity” on Tuesday, slammed the World Health Organization (WHO) for its “China-centric” views, adding the global health agency’s projections and pronouncements about the coronavirus pandemic have been routinely wrong. One of WHO’s earliest flawed pronouncements, the president told host Sean Hannity, was to strongly recommend against the U.S. restricting travel from China. Earlier Tuesday at a news briefing, Trump said he may put a “very powerful hold” on U.S. funding to the WHO. Sen. Lindsey Graham also said that the World Health Organization (WHO) should not receive funding from the United States under its...

    In his bid to win the position of Director-General for the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was playing a nice technocrat. At every venue and opportunity, he presents himself as a humble, smiley and caring and humanitarian who loses sleep over the state of world health. But his 12-page campaign CV never mentions his most important experience that made it possible for him to climb the ladder of power within the tyrannical regime oppressing and misruling Ethiopia. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, as well as being the first WHO director without a medical degree, also has a somewhat political...

    When it came to deadly epidemics, the Soviets didn’t do half-measures. Not only doctors, but the police, army, navy, and even the KGB were all brought in to curb the spread.In 1939, microbiologist Abram Berlin brought a dangerous disease back with him to Moscow from Saratov. There in Saratov, during experiments on animals, he used the living causative agent of the plague, and was strictly confined to quarantine. However, an urgent call from Moscow forced him to go immediately to the capital, unleashing the plague. Berlin checked in at the Hotel National, dined there, and visited a hairdresser.

    Given that a large number of the leprosy cases in the United States involve Latinos coming up from Mexico, Dr. Marc Siegel, an internal medicine specialist with NYU Langone Health, said "it seems only a matter of time before leprosy could take hold among the homeless population" in Los Angeles County. There are close to 600,000 homeless people in L.A. County and 75% of those people lack "even temporary shelter or adequate hygiene and medical equipment," Dr. Siegel wrote in The Hill. "All of those factors make a perfect cauldron for a contagious disease that is transmitted by nasal droplets...

    From the beginning of recorded history, 100's of millions have died from epidemics. Some of the most dreaded plagues include: Plague of Pharaoh Akhenaten of Egypt, circa 1350 BC; Philistine Plague after capturing the Ark of God (I Samuel 5-6); Plague of Athens, circa 430 BC, 100,000 deaths; Plague of Antonine, 165 AD, brought back by troops from the Middle East, 5 million deaths; Plague of Justinian, beginning in 541 AD, killing an estimated 100 million, half of the world's known population; Black Death-Bubonic Plague, beginning in 1334, killed an estimated 75 to 200 million; Cocoliztli Plague in Mexico, beginning...

    If sharks and sunburns don’t scare you at the beach, perhaps this will: Most species of Vibrio are essentially harmless, but some are responsible for diseases like cholera, or can rarely cause flesh-eating skin infections, especially in people with weakened immune systems... But presuming it holds up, the study could help explain a well-supported pattern—beachgoers who swim in the ocean are more likely to get sick with stomach aches or ear infections soon after than those who stay on the sand. And though the bulk of the blame can be tossed on the germs (often from poop) that get into...

    <p>As Mozambique battles to control a fast-spreading cholera outbreak in the cyclone-hit central city of Beira, international assistance is arriving. The number of cholera cases jumped to 271 over the weekend although no deaths from the disease had been reported. More than 500 people have died in Mozambique from Cyclone Idai, which slammed into Beira more than two weeks ago, according to government officials. Another 250 died in neighboring Zimbabwe and Malawi. The Chinese government has sent doctors to battle the cholera outbreak in Beira, a port city of 500,000. Chinese aid workers sprayed anti-cholera disinfectant in parts of Beira Sunday. The World Health Organization has said some 900,000 cholera vaccine doses are expected to arrive on Monday, with a vaccination campaign to start later this week.</p>

    Viruses use bacteria’s chemical language to time their destruction; this might lead to new ways to fight infections In the early experiments it looked like the virus called VP882 was doing something that should be impossible for a thing that is not a bacterium, and not technically even alive: intercepting molecular messages exchanged by its host bacteria, and reading them to determine the best time to annihilate the whole bacterial colony. “As scientists, this is just unimaginable to us,” says Bonnie Bassler, a molecular biologist at Princeton University. “We were delighted and skeptical at the same time. It was almost...

    Years ago, Tom Wolfe published a funny piece dealing with the reappearance during the Summer of Love of diseases never seen in the modern epoch. Wolfe's overall term for these disorders was, if I recall correctly, "The Crud." Doctors were unfamiliar with these conditions and in some cases uncertain as to how to treat them. Some of those children of nature ended up with chronic disorders. This served as a life lesson for the counterculture, most of whom resumed bathing. But now, fifty years later, we – at least those of us in California – are about to receive another...

    When Europeans came to the Americas, they brought some nasty diseases — smallpox, cholera and typhus, to name a few.But one pathogen was already there. And it likely traveled to the shores of South America in a surprising vessel.By analyzing DNA from 1,000-year-old mummies, scientists have found evidence that sea lions and seals were the first to bring tuberculosis to the New World. The sea animals likely infected people living along the coast of Peru and northern Chile, a team from the University of Tubingen in Germany reported Wednesday in the journal Nature."We weren't expecting to find a connection to...

    More than half a million people in Yemen have been infected with cholera since the epidemic began four months ago and 1,975 people have died, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday. Each day there are more than 5,000 new cases of the waterborne disease, which causes acute diarrhoea and dehydration, in the country where the health system has collapsed after more than two years of war, it said. "The total number of suspected cholera cases in Yemen this year hit the half a million mark on Sunday, and nearly 2,000 people have died since the outbreak began to...

    Seized by violence and teetering on the edge of famine, Yemen is grappling with another danger that threatens to outpace them both: cholera. "We are now facing the worst cholera outbreak in the world," international health authorities said in a statement Saturday. Anthony Lake, executive director of UNICEF, and Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization, say that "more than 1,300 people have died — one quarter of them children — and the death toll is expected to rise." They suspect that is because Yemen now has upwards of 200,000 cases to grapple with, and that number is growing...

    A cholera outbreak in Yemen is gaining momentum, adding to the misery of the Arab world’s poorest country which is already wracked by war and on the brink of famine. Around 51 people have been killed since the outbreak began in late April and the rate of deaths has been increasing in recent days, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). Yemen’s healthcare system has been decimated during two years of fighting and medicines are in desperately short supply, partly because of a blockade enforced by the Saudi-led military coalition that supports Yemen’s government. Around 7 million of the country’s...
