WHO Declares COVID-19 Global Health Emergency Over But Warns Countries To Remain Vigilant


On Friday, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that COVID-19 was no longer a global health emergency but warned countries to remain on guard.

Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that lifting the emergency did not mean the danger was over.

Instead, Tedros disclosed that the WHO could reinstate the measure.

“The worst thing any country can do now is to use this news as a reason to let down its guard, to dismantle the systems it has built, or to send the message to its people that COVID-19 is nothing to worry about,” he said.

The WHO’s International Health Regulations Emergency Committee discussed the pandemic on Thursday at its 15th meeting on COVID-19.

And the Director-General concurred that the declaration of the public health emergency of international concern, or PHEIC, should end.

Tedros explained that the pandemic has been on a downward trend for more than a year.

The WHO declared the coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency of international concern in January 2020, about six weeks before characterizing it as a pandemic.

Since the virus outbreak, millions have died, and the world has recorded an estimated 765 million confirmed COVID-19 infections.

  1. The countries which were said would have been devastated under the weight of Covid 19 due to their low intake of the Covid vaccine, actually fared better – way better than their rich first world counterparts. This says a lot about the so-called pandemic. And for the stupid ones within our health system who tried to force us into taking the deadly vaccine, who couldn’t even think for themselves despite seeing the deadly effects of the kill shot, I hope you have learned from this experience and understand that one should not blindly follow countries like America, one should listen to dissenting voices, especially our experts, that ivermectin was indeed very effective against the virus and that doctors had the right to work with patients to try repurposed medicines. I hope that these are some of the lessons our CMO would have learnt from this plandemic.

  2. SUrvivor, CMO is immune by covid laws. In the early days of Covid, Chassnay and his cohorts rewrote the laws to provide legal immunity for the CMO for any decision the CMO will make in the “pandemic”. CMO could recommend something she knew would kill everyone in this country, but she would have legal immunity. From the time I saw laws being rewritten to protect people, I knew this was a scam and very dangerous. Legal justice is one thing, but mob justice is something entirely different. I pray for those who were forced into taking this to save their livelihoods. Hope CMO and Clarke and all those other doctors can find peace after what they forced on people. A troubled conscience is not a pleasant thing to live with. A betrayed population lusting for vengeance is not a pleasant place to live in.

  3. This scamdemic was all for profit to usher in their much talked about 4th industrial revolution. They want us to change into something that can be controlled. Gene therapy has been around and DNA changing medicine is now being administratored as a normal thing now due to covid. Soon their system will crash to bring in their new world order, and then their digital ID, something as a simple tattoo will have all the info they need to herd every human on earth into a totalitarian system. No one will be able to escape, we all have a choice to make. Man made solutions for man made problem or we follow the Most High and his natural order.

  4. Health Care For Profit, we can all escape if we stand as one. The power of the masses. Facebook/Meta has become a corporate giant by selling you the customer. They make big profits by selling your information. Imagine what will happen if one day all it’s users decided to get off Facebook.
