  1. W.H.O is big criminal. Brain washing all the people in name of covid19. You must know human being is big virus, everyday human body fighting with trillions of viruses, one can fight such virus is human body. Stop eating garbage food. Eat food as medicine. That is. If you want stop all the generic products. First ask Bill gate is first man need to lock out of the world.

  5. On July 11, 2019, an epidemic of pneumonia broke out in a retirement home in Virgine, on the east coast of the United States (# 11, # 12). With 63 residents and 19 staff members infected (3 dead), the event is serious enough to be reported to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), which oversees epidemiological monitoring at the federal level. However, according to the Fairfax County report (# 13), the CDC fails to isolate the cause and only the cold virus is found in a minority of patients.

    Other similar events occur nearby and Virginia health services report between 16 and 19 local epidemics of respiratory diseases in the summer of 2019 (# 14, # 15, # 16), which constitutes an abnormal assessment for this small american east coast state

  6. Why these idiots are talking about small pox as covid-19 is complete different entire world is doing research on it(except WHO) and I hope we succeed .WHO is only trying to create fear in mind of people after spreading virus.

  7. He (Thedros) was a member of the TPLF movement (People’s Liberation Movement of Tigray), and that movement was marked by many countries as a terrorist organization. In fact, he was not just a mere “enthusiastic student”, but the Executive Commissioner of the Politburo of that movement. When the movement overthrew the previous regime in Ethiopia, he was appointed Minister of Health. During the cholera epidemic in Ethiopia in 2007, he covered up that it was cholera, calling the epidemic “Acute Diarrhea Syndrome”, thus violating all possible rules of the World Health Organization.

  8. To add a bit to the last discussion item: most people don’t understand the power of exponentials even though it became a very commonly (mis)used word. Having a few dozen vs. tens of thousands of sick people can easily mean that the in the latter case the virus appeared a couple days before and just had a few more days to spread. That’s how exponentials behave – even if the start is sort of flat at one point they shoot out and become orders of magnitude larger in a very few steps.

  9. This Communist organisation must be renamed as World Unhealth Organisation. Almost 99 percent in U.N are communist.

  10. Hello WHO, I believe a 2nd wave is out in china. ..please respond.
    WHO: It’s not proven its human to human transfer to be clear as of yet. This is only speculation. Please join our social media give us all your information and thank you for your support.. we get back to you…good morning good day good night. What is this devil-lope word he keeps saying anyway?

  11. How dare you! You thrust upon the world your pre planned ogliarchy, the children will be the ones who suffer the most..
    Meh can’t be bothered writing more right now. How come world govts are falling for this??

  12. 中国制造了这种病毒,并将追究其责任。 您是我们的敌人,我们将寻求满足。 自由战胜邪恶。🇺🇸🇨🇦🗽

  13. by December 31, the government of Taiwan sent a white paper to the World Health Organization explaining that they had full evidence that there was human-to-human transmission, and that it was going to be a new global pandemic. And if you remember, on January 14, Tedros said to the world in a proclamation on a Tweet that this is not a global pandemic, and that he had just consulted with Xi Jinping and the Chinese, and that there is no evidence of human-to-human transmission—this is January 14.

  14. In mid-April the WHO said Taiwan’s warning notice of ‘isolated for treatment’ sent on December 31 DOES NOT mean ‘human to human transmission.’ If that was true, why isolated? And it was the WHO that needed to proactively investigate whether it’s human to human transmission. It was not Taiwan’s job to confirm it. (Taiwan was not even a member of the WHO.)

    Before the transmission route could be clarified, the WHO needed to treat it as human to human transmission for safety and should have warned the world in December by directing other countries to do what Taiwan did — screening passengers from Wuhan AS EARLY AS December 31.

    If the rest of the world had paid more attention to Taiwan, a small island that is officially recognized as a country by less than 20 nations, we would not be facing a viral massacre.

  15. Put this on all the mainstream radio and tv stations every hour and on mainstream government and media YouTube channels hourly, and send pamplets saying this to everyone:

    People should boost their immune system with a healthy nutritionally adequate whole foods plant based diet high in vitamin c and they can drink coconut water for electrolytes. Eating all the colors of the rainbow of healthy plant based food, getting enuf anti oxidants and phyto nutritents, and eating anti imflamatory healthy plant based foods may also help.
    Drink lots of water so their pee is clear or almost clear. Get enuf sleep, exercise, get fresh air, and avoid toxins like smoke alcohol and recreational drugs. Reduce stress. Dont over eat, being obese can increase your risk.
    Cronometer is free to help people get an idea of how to get enuf nutritents in their diet.
    Taking vitamins especially vitamin c, cranberry pills, and a high quality refrigerated pro biotic, prebiotic, and digestive enzymes, and emergen-c or airborne, and getting vitamin d from sun, might help to.

    “Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.
    Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    Stay home when you are sick.
    Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.”-cdc

    “Serious respiratory illnesses like influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), whooping cough, and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) are spread by:

    Coughing or sneezing
    Unclean hands
    Touching your face after touching contaminated objects
    Touching objects after contaminating your hands

    To help stop the spread of germs:

    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.Put your used tissue in a waste basket.If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.

    Remember to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing:

    Wash with soap and water, or
    Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. If clean, running water is not accessible, as is common in many parts of the world, use soap and available water. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean hands.”-cdc

    “The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or speaks. There droplets are too heavy to hang in the air. They quickly fall on floors or surfaces. 

    You can be infected by breathing in the virus if you are within 1 metre of a person who has COVID-19, or by touching a contaminated surface and then touching you eyes, nose or mouth before washing you hands.”-who

    “People can catch COVID-19 from others who have the virus. The disease can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales. These droplets land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. People can also catch COVID-19 if they breathe in droplets from a person with COVID-19 who coughs out or exhales droplets. This is why it is important to stay more than 1 meter (3 feet) away from a person who is sick.”-who

    “The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

    Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

    These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.”-cdc

    “Spread from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects

    It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.”-cdc

    Convince gov to let everyone have an acre of free tax free fertile land to grow a food forest on and live on.
    End farm subsidies. End tax
    breaks to farms exsept those who grow healthy vegan food for human consumption exsept no large mono crops.
    End mandatory school, ged and hsd requirements, age limits, minimum wage, and exsessive regs.
    People should be able to learn how to do a good job they want so they can afford a house and car before 18.
    For those who and whos parents can afford it, tax deductible chairty and or the $ (about 180,000dollars in us) spent on k thru 12 per student could pay for it and trash k thru 12 and some of that money could be used to promote more independence and healthy living
