WHO Watchdog Warns ‘Pandemic Treaty’ a ‘Skillfully Crafted Decoy Designed to Take Attention Away From Proposed Amendments to International Health Regulations’

World Health Organization

The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Working Group on the International Health Regulations (WGIHR) is meeting this week to consider amendments to the regulations that will ultimately serve to increase the power of the global health agency, WHO watchdog James Roguski has been observing.

The International Health Regulations (IHR) are separate from the “pandemic treaty,” which some lawmakers are attempting to address through legislation.

As The Star News Network reported Saturday, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) reintroduced legislation last week that seeks to protect the sovereignty of the United States against the WHO’s attempt to push through a pandemic treaty onto its member states.

The pandemic treaty, however, Roguski believes, “is a skillfully crafted decoy that is designed to take attention away from the proposed amendments to the IHR,” and the need to entirely “exit the WHO.”

He writes in his Substack column:

The proposed “Pandemic Treaty” is a real thing, but I have been saying for nearly a year that it is also designed to function as a decoy.

Please realize that the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations are a clear and present danger.

In a recent video, Roguski details some of the top reasons to oppose the amendments to the IHR.

These include:

  1. The amendments would change the current role of the WHO from “advisory to mandatory.”
  2. The amendments would remove “respect for dignity, human rights and the fundamental freedoms of people.”
  3. The amendments would institute “global digital and paper health certificates.”

Roguski detailed many of the worst proposed amendments in his Substack column, organizing them according to the nations or groups of nations that proposed them.

He noted, for example, that India proposed the amendment that would remove the requirement to implement the IHR with “full respect for dignity, human rights and fundamental freedoms of persons.”

In a tweet, Roguski showed the proposal would replace “full respect for dignity, human rights and fundamental freedoms of persons” with the phrase “based on the principles of equity, inclusivity, coherence and in accordance with their common but differentiated responsibilities of the State Parties, taking into consideration their social and economic development.”

In another example, the United States joined the nations of Bangladesh, those of the African Region, and Malaysia in proposing an amendment that would “surrender sovereignty” to the WHO, Roguski observed.

The United States also joined with the European Union, India, New Zealand, and Switzerland in proposing another amendment that would “expand the scope of the IHR by enabling the Director-General and Regional Directors to declare Intermediate Health Alerts, Public Health Emergencies of Regional Concern (PHERC) and Public Health Emergencies of International Concern on their sole authority if they determine that events merely have the ‘potential’ to cause an actual emergency.”

Senior editor at The Blaze Daniel Horowitz cited earlier in February his view of a “perfect bill” (HB 0413) to remedy federal overreach and the advance of global governance by the WHO, one introduced in Wyoming by State Representative Jeanette Ward (R-Casper), that states:

The United States centers for disease control and prevention and the World Health Organization shall have no jurisdiction in Wyoming and any requirements, mandates, recommendations, instructions or guidance provided by either organization shall not be used in this state to justify and mask, vaccine or medical testing requirements and shall have no force or effect in Wyoming.

Roguski appeared as a guest in an episode of Good Morning CHD (Children’s Health Defense) last week to discuss more about the dangers of the IHR amendments.

He also noted in his column dated February 8 that the International Health Regulations Review Committee (IHRRC) “published their final report and they have validated nearly everything that I have been saying for the last month and a half,” an indication, perhaps, that more awareness and vocal opposition to the amendments are being noticed.
