Yet another conspiracy theory video TweetTweet. I couldn't be bothered to sit through 49 minutes of yet more drivel but I did watch the first few minutes. Immediately you can see the fallacy emerging. In this one Tedros and the WHO are part of the conspiracy to control the whole world population through fear of a virus that doesn't exist.
I have watched a large number of the WHO press conferences and read many of their publications. From as early as February the WHO in general and Tedros in particular stressed that the ONLY
way to contain the pandemic is through test-trace-isolate. Throughout history mankind has used the methodology of tackling infectious diseases by isolating the people who are infectious. Throughout history it has worked. When TB was a scourge in the UK people diagnosed with TB were put in isolation hospitals. People with Smallpox were isolated, Patients with Ebola are isolated. When I had chicken pox at the age of 26 I asked a public health inspector what I should do because I couldn't get a sensible answer from my doctors surgery. He told me to isolate myself for 14 days. It is standard medical practise. It is totally logical and simple. If you are infectious stay away from other people so you don't infect them until you are no longer infectious. It isn't rocket science, a 5 year old could understand it.
In the case of COVID-19 there is no easy clinical way, i.e. from the symptoms, to reliably diagnose who is infectious so we need to use tests. PCR was the first to work pretty reliably, although not perfectly, and has been widely used. Now new anti-gen tests are starting to be deployed that do the same thing more quickly. You isolate those who are positive, i.e. infectious, just as we used to isolate people who had TB. In this case only for 14 days. Wow! That is really controlling the population. Imagine telling somebody to stay at home for 14 days. Unbelievable. Since the disease is infectious without symptoms we also trace contacts who might have caught it from a proven infected person and tell them to isolate for 14 days. I mean as conspiracies go it is hardly earth shattering.
In every WHO broadcast that I have watched the WHO and Tedros in particular have stressed that restrictive measures like lockdown are NOT a solution. He has always said that countries should ONLY use them to reduce the rate of spread of the virus down to a low enough level to allow test-trace-isolate to be used effectively if they really have to. If Tedros and the WHO were part of a global conspiracy to control the population through restrictive measure like lockdown why did he consistently take this position? Why didn't he promote lockdown.
If the testing is not detecting the virus but just some random strands of something or other what is causing these?
