WHO Adopts ‘Landmark’ COVID-19 Resolution

SourceUN News

UN News:–  With “unprecedented solidarity”, the World Health Assembly adopted a “landmark resolution” on Tuesday, which sets out a “clear roadmap” of the actions needed to sustain and accelerate the COVID-19 response at both national and international levels, the UN health agency chief told a press briefing on Wednesday, the day after the meeting concluded.

“It assigns responsibilities for both the WHO [World Health Organization] and its member States, and captures the comprehensive whole of government and whole of society approach we have been calling for since the beginning of the outbreak”, Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

“If implemented, this would ensure a more coherent, coordinated and fairer response that saves both lives and livelihoods”.

Among other things, the resolution underlines WHO’s key role in promoting access to safe, effective health technologies to fight the pandemic.

It also lifts barriers to effective vaccines, medicines and other health products.

“We call on all countries to join this initiative”, he asserted.

Tough road ahead
There is still a long way to go in battling the pandemic, according to Tedros.

He pointed out that in the last 24 hours, WHO had received reports of 106,000 cases, “the most in a single day since the outbreak began”, with nearly two-thirds in just four countries.

“We’re very concerned about the rising numbers of cases in low and middle-income countries”, flagged the WHO chief.

He relayed that in the World Health Assembly, Governments outlined that their primary goal was to suppress coronavirus transmission, save lives and restore livelihoods.

In battling COVID-19, WHO underscores the importance of ensuring that health systems continue to function with all essential services, including child immunization.

Invest in health
Closing on a note of hope, Mr. Ghebreyesus recalled that what it is hoped will be the last person treated for Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) epidemic, recovered and was discharged on 14 May.

“On that day, the DRC Ministry of Health announced the beginning of the 42-day countdown to the end of the outbreak”, he said. “We now have 36 days to go but new cases could still emerge, as we have seen before”.

According to the Director-General, the pandemic has taught and informed many lessons, including that “health is not a cost; it’s an investment”.

“To live in a secure world, guaranteeing quality health for all is not just the right choice; it’s the smart choice”, concluded the WHO chief.


  1. The man in that image is an imposter working for the communist chinese party. Mr Trump is taking care of the problem with the WHO. Evil corrupt organization.

    • Well said this guy is nothing but a puppet to China. This organization is pointless it should be dismantled and abolish, they are to corrupt. I’m happy Trump cut funding for them.

      • A spokes person for the COMMUNIST CHINESE PARTY. Ask your leader why they cover up the CHINA virus.

  2. You are so right brother. Our people do not read, do research. From since last year this imposter knew this virus was spreading in China and never alerted the world. Do you know China was responsible for Tedros being head of the WHO, This man and China is responsible for the mess this world is in and by extention we in St.Lucia. This man in not a Medical Doctor. It is the first time in history that the WHO in being headed by a none Medical Doctor. This Dr.Tedros is from Ethiopia. China has promised to build a very large Medical Institution in Ethiopia as a thank you gesture to Tedros.

  3. ..…..all because he is A BLACK MAN in this position. If Dr. Fauci was saying the same thing or in the same position nobody would have nothing to say you bunch of Uncle Tom Negros. The US has done the world no wrong; they have not released any plague upon this earth ; you illiterate clowns better go educate yourselves and read a book.

  4. Lucian upgrade. You dont read, you dont research, you dont watch the news. Discuss FACTS. Stop the reconstructive criticism. Make sence. Those are facts. There is no Racism in there. It is the truth about a black man being used and this has brought the entire world to its knees.

  5. I’ve said it before and i’l say it again..covid19 is a big hoax where the illuminatti wants to inoculate their new world order vaccines unto mankind…Bill Gates,W.H.O,John Hopkins&associates are all in on it even the international media and health care facilities….fyahhbunnn!

  6. I agree 100% with John Public. The saddest part is that our Chief Medical Officer is either too lazy to do the RESEARCH (there is so much information available) OR has also been co-opted by the Deep State…… more likely blindly following the WHO recommendation and forcing stupid recommendations (such as mask wearing) upon us with NO CRITICAL THINKING…… with the amount she gats paid, this is pure malfeasance!
