Did the WHO demand surveillance powers to monitor every person for “disease control”?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WHO Demands Surveillance Powers To Monitor Everyone!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that the WHO is demanding surveillance powers to monitor every person for “disease control”!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is long and (intentionally?) rambling. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

WHO Demands Surveillance Powers to Monitor Every Man, Woman & Child For ‘Disease Control’

Truth : WHO Did Not Demand Surveillance Powers To Monitor Everyone!

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

Fact #1 : WHO Did Not Demand Surveillance Powers To Monitor Everyone

This is really silly, but let me start by pointing out that the WHO never asked or demanded for surveillance powers to “monitor every single man, woman and child on earth” for disease control or any other reason.

The People’s Voice article certainly offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : Pandemic Treaty Does Not Refer To WHO Surveillance Powers

If you download and read the zero draft (PDF) of the proposed pandemic treaty, you will see that it never mentioned anything about giving the WHO surveillance powers to monitor any person.

In fact, zero draft only referred to genomic and disease surveillance, not people:

Article 18. One Health

7. Each Party shall:

(d) enhance surveillance to identify and report on pathogens resistant to antimicrobial agents in humans, livestock and aquaculture that have pandemic potential, building on the existing global reporting systems;

The zero draft also specifically pointed out that such surveillance should be adopted by each country “in accordance with national law“:

Article 11. Strengthening and sustaining preparedness and health systems’ resilience

4. Each Party shall, in accordance with national law, adopt policies and strategies, supported by implementation plans, across the public and private sectors and relevant agencies, consistent with relevant tools, including, but not limited to, the International Health Regulations, and strengthen and reinforce public health functions for:

(c) surveillance (including using a One Health approach), outbreak investigation and control, through interoperable early warning and alert systems;

In other words, it is up to each country to conduct its own disease surveillance, according to its own laws.

Fact #3 : WHO Pandemic Treaty Does Not Affect Sovereignty!

Anyone who reads the zero draft will see that it clearly states in Pages 10 and 11 that countries will maintain their sovereignty, and continue to have the right to “determine and manage” their own healthcare initiatives, including how to tackle future pandemics.

3. Sovereignty – States have, in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and the principles of international law, the sovereign right to determine and manage their approach to public health, notably pandemic prevention, preparedness, response and recovery of health systems, pursuant to their own policies and legislation, provided that activities within their jurisdiction or control do not cause damage to their peoples and other countries. Sovereignty also covers the rights of States over their biological resources.

Why would anyone who actually read the zero draft ever claim that countries signing up for the pandemic treaty would be handing over their sovereignty to the World Health Organization. That’s utter nonsense.

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Publishing 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:
