SWITZERLAND - Serious Failure in WHO Global Response

Arno Froese

Covid-19: Make it the Last Pandemic, was compiled by the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response.

Its aim was to find answers as to how the virus had killed more than 3.3 million people and infected more than 159 million.

The panel argued that the WHO’s Emergency Committee should have declared the outbreak in China an international emergency a week earlier than it did.

It should have done so at its first meeting on 22 January last year, the report said, instead of waiting until 30 January.

To prevent another catastrophic pandemic, the report suggests key reforms: 

• A new global threats council should be created with the power to hold countries accountable

• There should be a disease surveillance system to publish information without the approval of countries concerned

• Vaccines must be classed as public goods and there should be a pandemic financing facility

• There was an immediate request for the wealthy G7 nations to commit $1.9bn (£1.3bn) to the WHO’s Covax program providing vaccine support to low income countries

Panel co-chair and former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark said it was “critical to have an empowered WHO.”

Arno's Commentary

Coronavirus serves as another steppingstone toward the globalization of healthcare. Covid-19 was not limited to one country, but literally the whole world was affected. This finding will reinforce the requirement of closer global cooperation to be prepared for the next pandemic to come. 

When reading Revelation 6, we notice that after the sixth seal is opened, it proclaims: “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains” (Revelation 6:15). Why are they hiding? “The wrath of the Lamb.”
