Did WEF order governments to declare Bird Flu Martial Law?!

Did the WEF just order world governments to declare martial law due to an imminent bird flu pandemic?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Governments To Declare Bird Flu Martial Law!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the WEF (World Economic Forum) just ordered world governments to declare martial law due to an imminent bird flu pandemic!

Here is an excerpt of that long and (intentionally???) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Governments To Declare Bird Flu Martial Law!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order Any Bird Flu Martial Law

Let me start by pointing out that the WEF (World Economic Forum) did not order any government to declare martial law over bird flu.

If that actually happened, it would have been reported by the media worldwide, and criticised by people on social media. Yet, none of that occurred, because the WEF never made such a declaration.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its ridiculous claim.

Fact #2 : WEF Cannot Order Governments To Do Anything

I should also point out that the World Economic Forum (WEF) cannot order any country to implement anything, much less martial law. It is merely an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that focuses on public-private sector collaboration.

The WEF has no power over governments, beyond its lobbying and influencing efforts. The WEF may be an influential lobbying organisation, but it cannot order governments to do anything.

Fact #3 : WEF Does Not Have Scientists

Again, the WEF is an NGO that promotes public-private collaborations. It doesn’t actually have scientists conducting research on bird flu, or other diseases.

To be clear – Mandy Cohen is the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and does not work for the WEF. Neither is John Fulton – a pharmaceutical industry consultant for vaccines, a scientist working for the WEF.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its claim that WEF scientists said that “the upcoming bird flu pandemic will kill at least 50% of those it infects“.

Fact #4 : There Is No Need To Declare Martial Law

The term “martial law” appears to used to trigger outrage, and encourage people into sharing this piece of misinformation.

The truth is – even if there is a new pandemic, there is no need for any country to declare martial law. As the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated, countries have existing public health laws to initiate lockdowns or quarantines.

Martial law is only needed if there is a serious threat of violence that the police cannot handle. While bird flu viruses may be lethal, they cannot pick up guns and threaten people with violence. So what’s the point of declaring martial law?

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
