This latest policy u-turn by the World Health Organization (WHO) could make life awkward for fanatical lockdown governments in the UK, Australia and Spain, as well as in states like New York.
Yesterday, WHO lead official Dr. David Nabarro appealed to world leaders to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method” of suppressing COVID-19.
“Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer,” said Dr. Nabarro.
He went on to warn western governments that draconian lockdown policies are only achieving one thing – unnecessary poverty and suffering.
At no point did he state that medieval-style lockdown measures have ‘saved lives.’
This goes directly against repeated statements by WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has advocating for lockdowns all along, saying that, “[L]ockdowns enabled many countries to suppress transmission and take the pressure off their health systems.”
It still remains to be seen whether this change in envoy Dr Nabarro’s own stance will be reflected in the WHO’s overall global policy recommendations on COVID.
Increased economic and social devastation from previous WHO policy recommendations have already triggered a wave of dissent across the world as more people begin to realise that lockdowns never really worked to begin with.COVID Shocker: WHO Does Policy U-Turn, Condemns Use of Lockdowns
