The proposed IHR amendments would give WHO authority over member state countries by changing the wording from non-binding to binding recommendations that will now mandate the member state countries to follow instead just consider those recommendations. Countries will have to accept the WHO as the “AUTHORITY” in international public health emergencies over their own health agencies. The amendments will also change the definition of Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) to include not only actual, but any potential concerns that the Director General deems necessary.
Some of the powers that Director General will have include detention of individuals, restriction of travel, the forcing of health interventions (like testing, vaccinations, medical treatments, etc) and requirement to undergo medical examinations if necessary. The WHO will have power to designate specific opinions or information as “misinformation” or “disinformation” and it can require member state country’s government to intervene and interfere with individual’s rights to speech and free expression. Obvious concern is that such interventions will specifically interfere with the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
