Nov. 28 (EIRNS)—None of the political leaders of the so-called “advanced” economies, has yet found the honesty to acknowledge the truth that the emergence of dramatically altered variants, like Omicron, confirms. The failure of these “economically advanced” nations to spread vaccines, modern health facilities and public health capacities as rapidly as possible throughout the underdeveloped countries, was humanly negligent, morally indifferent and deadly foolish. It invites the virus, circulating freely among the billions of unvaccinated, to create new forms and again threaten the entire world with death and economic destruction.
A few, like former British Prime, and currently WHO Ambassador for Global Health Financing Minister Gordon Brown, have stated this truth in clear terms since Nov. 26 when the “Omicron” variant of COVID was identified….
The sane worldwide collaboration of virologists to provide accurate and responsible public health advice to populations about the COVID pandemic, called for by former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders for the Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites, is really urgently needed now. (https://schillerinstitute.com/blog/2021/11/23/open-letter-to-virologists-and-medical-experts-around-the-world-to-address-the-covid-19-pandemic/) Being circulated by the Schiller Institute, Dr. Elders’ statement says, “I am calling upon virologists and medical experts throughout the globe to undertake an international, coordinated and integrated educational campaign to establish a sane approach to deal with this and potentially future pandemics….
Nov. 29 (EIRNS) – The World Health Organization met urgently today to issue a new technical brief for its 194 member states on the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, as the number of countries around the world with reported cases continued to grow. The WHO stated that it will still be two weeks or so until sufficient evidence is gathered to reach solid conclusions about Omicron, but as of now what can be said is that “there could be future surges of COVID-19, which could have severe consequences, depending on a number of factors including where surges may take place. The overall global risk related to the new VOC [variant of concern] Omicron is assessed as very high,” the UN health agency said.
More bluntly, WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the meeting of members: “Omicron demonstrates just why the world needs a new accord on pandemics.” Also addressing the meeting, Richard Hatchett, a scientist and CEO of the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), a foundation that funds vaccine development, said that Omicron’s emergence had fulfilled predictions that transmission of the virus in areas with low vaccination rates would speed its evolution. “The inequity that has characterized the global response has now come home to roost,” he told the talks, noting that Botswana and South Africa had fully vaccinated less than a quarter of their populations.
Full vaccination of every nation’s population is urgently necessary, but it is only one component of a planetary defense against the current pandemic, and possible future ones, that must now be put in place in short order. That requires an international crash program to build modern health systems in every country, along with the full-set human and physical infrastructure needed to make that possible – from energy, to water, to food, to modern transport, to the education and training of skilled professionals. This is the core of the proposal first issued by Helga Zepp-LaRouche when the pandemic first emerged, and has since been taken up by the Committee for the Coincidence of Opposites and its co-founder, former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders.
Over a dozen countries are now reporting Omicron cases, and three countries – Japan, Israel and Morocco – have shut down all international travel into their countries. The U.S. today joined most European nations in putting in place controversial prohibitions of air travel from Southern African nations. Omicron’s existence was first reported less than a week ago, on Wednesday, Nov. 24.
