An Anti-Pandemic Plan is a low-hanging fruit. If this is being touted, then how badly did the summit truly go with Biden at the helm?
How desperate are the world’s leaders to show the return of global harmony after President Joe Biden has replaced former President Donald Trump?
Significantly, I should think, based on the signature piece of work the leaders unveiled at the G7 Summit: An Anti-Pandemic Declaration.
G7 leaders on Saturday plan to sign a Carbis Bay declaration on health to prevent another global pandemic, according to a British government statement.
Under the declaration, the G7 leaders will be “vowing to take steps to ensure the global devastation caused by the coronavirus is never repeated,” the statement said. They will commit to using all their resources toward this goal when they meet in Cornwall for the second day of the G7 summit Saturday.
The declaration is a “historic statement setting out a series of concrete commitments to prevent any repeat of the human and economic devastation wreaked by coronavirus,” the British government statement said.
Just imagine the kings and queens of Europe had such foresight after the Bubonic Plague swept through in the 1300s! The world may have missed out on subsequent episodes of the plague…as well as smallpox, yellow fever, and the host of other pathogenic scourges through history.
I think we can comfortably assume most people oppose pandemics….except maybe the Chinese. China has plans to build 25 to 30 more biolabs like the one in Wuhan at the epicenter of the current pandemic.
China is planning to build dozens of biosafety level three labs and one biosafety level four lab over the next five years as investigators take another look at the possibility that the coronavirus could have leaked out of a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
China’s Guangdong province plans to create 25 to 30 biosafety level three labs and one biosafety level four lab, the Financial Times reported.
But dealing with China would be difficult and not lend itself to photo-ops. So the international group’s plans double down on what has already been done:
The G7 declaration will spell out a series of concrete steps, including:
- Slashing the time taken to develop and license vaccines, treatments and diagnostics for any future disease to under 100 days
- Reinforcing global surveillance networks and genomic sequencing capacity
- Support for reforming and strengthening the World Health Organization (WHO)
Each of those elements is full of trouble. While the speedy development of vaccinations is an excellent idea, pressing the public to take them while there is evidence of adverse health effects is dangerous. The global sequencing networks offered evidence of the laboratory manipulation of the coronavirus, but the elite media and compromised bureaucrats bullied scientists who asserted SARS-cov-2 was bioengineered until recently. Finally, few informed Americans will forget that WHO initially went along with the Chinese, saying the virus did not spread by airborne transmission.
Do you know what’s even better than the proposal? Why the contribution of the very experts responsible for the awful response in the first place.
Saturday’s session will also see the participation of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus.
According to the BBC report, the Declaration is “expected to incorporate recommendations from a report by a group of international experts drawn from across industry, government and scientific institutions”.
An Anti-Pandemic Plan is a low-hanging fruit. If this is what the leaders will tout, then how badly did the summit honestly go with Biden at the helm?
