April 19, 2023: Last month marked three years since the coronavirus disease was declared a pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organisation) on March 11, 2020. Over the course of this turbulent period, a growing number of questions have been raised by medical experts, activists, and logical-thinking people in relation to the Covid-19 narrative.
The questions that critical-thinking people have been asking about the handling of the pandemic cover a wide range of subjects, issues, and developments.
Topics include the need for hard lockdowns, the origin of the Covid-19 virus, the media’s role in spreading fear, vaccine mandates, mask mandates, physical distancing, politicising of decisions at the WHO, suppression of alternative viewpoints, sweeping aside of local and natural remedies, and much more.
Empire Diaries spoke with a number of subject-matter experts and asked them what some of the important questions are that they would like the Geneva-headquartered WHO to answer to the public at once.
This article is the fifth of a series of powerful questionnaire sets that we are publishing in public interest. The series has so far listed out some thought-provoking questions directed at the WHO by Dr. Amitav Banerjee, Susan Raj, Bhaskaran Raman, and Dr. Veena Raghava.
In this incisive edition of the series, Dr. Gayatri Panditrao, who is a Maharashtra-based homoeopathic consultant and a firebrand critic of efforts to politicise healthcare, has compiled a set of probing questions for the international health body to answer – at once.
Questions for the WHO
1. Can the WHO explain why Covid-19 was declared as a pandemic when the emerging facts for infections and deaths, seemingly caused by the coronavirus, were limited?
2. Can the WHO explain why the definition of pandemic is being tampered with frequently under the pretext of evolving science in order to push the false narrative?
3. Covid symptomatic presentation is very similar to influenza; at times even difficult to differentiate it clinically. There’s already enough documentation of yearly influenza complications and deaths for all past years when we did not include it under the pandemic category earlier. Isn’t it unscientific and illogical for the WHO to declare Covid as a pandemic followed by inclusion of normal seasonal flu as pandemic influenza, and thereby help in creating a health crisis every year?
4. Why did the WHO rely only on RT-PCR test results to define Covid cases? It was already known that this test was never designed for it, and instead, was being used only as a research tool.
5. Can the WHO evaluate and explain how the ‘documented high Covid case count’ was not influenced by RT-PCR false positive results? – and how false negatives did more harm than false positives?
6. Why did the WHO set CT cycles to high scales of 25 to 35 for the RT-PCR tests? It was known that this range has high sensitivity and low specificity with regard to viral load, and hence, can help work up a high Covid count. Isn’t it sheer manipulation of the recourse and scientific misuse to suit the pandemic agenda?
7. Why did the WHO not consider clinicians’ role in treating Covid cases? Why were physicians were instructed and/or expected to admit such cases in hospitals solely on the basis of test results, without giving any chance to physicians to tackle them in their own way?
8. The WHO’s guidelines don’t include any other management or treatment modalities, except allopathy, for Covid-19. Doctors practising traditional medicine were not allowed to take up Covid cases. Why was the ‘right to practise’ declined for registered doctors from allied and proven fields, cutting down on half the available resources during such a health crisis?
9. Can the WHO justify the hazardous aftermath that humanity faced after influencing sudden, stringent lockdowns and school closures?
10. Traditional vaccine development timeline is typically 5-10 years, and sometimes even more. How did the WHO approve Covid vaccines with unprecedented speed, that is, in less than a year’s time, especially when the mRNA technology was being used for the first time for the development of vaccines for large-scale use? Didn’t this decision hamper proper assessment of vaccine safety and efficacy, resulting from insufficient clinical trials?
11. On May 30, 2022, the WHO updated its policy brief, first published in April 2021, in response to changes in the Covid-19 vaccine landscape. It included the authorisation of jabs for children and additional information about vaccine mandates. As per new guidelines, the WHO states that it does not presently support the direction of mandates for Covid vaccines, arguing that it is better to work on informative campaigns and making vaccines accessible. So, how does the WHO justify the harm done to the health of individuals with respect to short-term and long-term side-effects of these experimental vaccines, considering that they were indirectly mandated almost everywhere, especially in the initial days?
12. Why did the WHO neglect the importance of natural immunity, which is long-lasting and generic as against vaccine-induced immunity, which is short-lived and strain-specific?
13. Why is the WHO trying to force various nations to sign the pandemic treaty, which could hamper individual constitutional rights and one’s sovereignty?
14. Will the WHO guarantee the non-authoritative role that it should play while establishing the WHO global centre for traditional medicine in collaboration with the Ayush ministry? Can the WHO confirm that it has no conflict of interest?
15. Infection prevention and control (IPC), the guidelines of the WHO in the context of Covid, includes words such as ‘recommendations’, ‘good practice’, ‘advice for use of masks or isolation’, etc. These essentially mean there isn’t supposed to be any mandate. Yet, in many nations, these guidelines were misused, causing serious health and psychological issues. Did the WHO took note of this? If ‘no’, why? If ‘yes’, what was the correction step taken?
16. Does the WHO have comprehensive post-mortem analysis and data to confirm that deaths occurred during last three years due to the following scenarios:
(a) Deaths only due to Covid virus.
(b) Deaths due to comorbidities among those who tested positive in PCR testing.
(c) Deaths due to Covid vaccines.
17. The WHO has accepted some of the mistakes that happened in response to Covid. Shouldn’t it be held responsible for the aftermath of those mistakes?
18. Why did the WHO ignore whistleblowers who came out with alternate views about the pandemic and its handling? Is the WHO afraid of confronting such scientific debates?
19. Governmental bodies are usually about power more than anything else. But the WHO is discussing a draft pandemic accord with intergovernmental negotiating bodies. Is it ethically right to politicise healthcare? Does the WHO have an answer?
20. Will the WHO consider and collaborate views shared by independent health organisations across the globe, which are free from any conflict of interest, and have a transparent outlook towards public health?
