Biden Admin Assures Commitment to the ‘Pandemic Accord’

Biden’s representative to the World Health Organization (WHO) Pamela Hamamoto said the Biden administration “is committed to the Pandemic Accord” and hopes the accord will be successful for “generations to come.” “Shared commitment, shared aspirations and shared responsibilities will vastly improve our system for preventing, preparing for, and responding to future pandemic emergencies,” Hamamoto added. The “Pandemic Accord” is currently in discussion among member countries of the WHO’s Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB). Member countries refer to the accord as the “WHO convention, agreement or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response,” or “WHO CA+”.

From Breitbart:

The draft WHO CA+ lists a series of responsibilities for countries that ratify it, including a crafted responsibility to waive intellectual property rights for “pandemic-related products,” participation in regular “tabletop exercises” to improve pandemic response, and the incorporation of human rights protections into public health laws, presumably to avoid the widespread atrocities occurring during lockdowns and quarantine camp internment in countries such as China during the current pandemic. The accord would require signatories to cede some amount of international “oversight of and reporting on laboratories and research facilities that carry out work to genetically alter organisms,” a potential nod to growing concerns that the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic was a result of a leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, an institution known to be studying bat coronaviruses at the onset of the pandemic.

The draft accord also requires the creation of an oversight body to enforce the accord, a “global compensation mechanism for injuries resulting from pandemic vaccines,” and a “Global Pandemic Supply Chain and Logistics Network” to avoid shortages of necessary goods.
