GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — If you were under the impression that COVID passports were a thing of the past, you may have to think again. The World Health Organization announced this week that they are developing a “World Health Passport” in cooperation with the European Commission – the unelected panel that rules the European Union.
“In June 2023, WHO will take up the European Union (EU) system of digital COVID-19 certification to establish a global system that will help facilitate global mobility and protect citizens across the world from on-going and future health threats, including pandemics,” the WHO states in a press release.
“Building on the EU’s highly successful digital certification network, WHO aims to offer all WHO Member States access to an open-source digital health tool, which is based on the principles of equity, innovation, transparency and data protection and privacy,” said WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
BUILDING ON THE COVID PASS
During the height of the so-called pandemic, several countries as well as state, local and municipal governments instituted far-reaching measures that curtailed citizens’ rights to freely move around as well as their access to basic necessities. In France, people had to show a digital vaccination certificate in order to have a cup of coffee at café; in Italy, you had to show proof of vaccination in order to take the bus to work or school.
Similar draconian rules were implemented in New York and Los Angeles – effectively creating a two-tier society. These regulations have since been rescinded but provided a fertile testing ground for authoritarian governments to see how many people would accept having their basic rights contingent upon injecting a foreign substance that lacked data on long-term effects into their bodies.
A LONG-TERM PROJECT
The efforts to implement a global digital identity passport have been in the works since at least 2012 and are driven by organizations with strong links to the United Nations, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum. The tentacles of this project reach far and wide, as it includes some of the world’s largest corporations in partnership with unaccountable international bodies.
In 2016, the initiative ID2020 was launched as a partnership between the UN and companies like Accenture, IBM (the architect of New York’s COVID pass), Blackrock, Cisco Systems and Microsoft, only to name a few. With the WHO’s announcement this week, it now seems that the digital ID projects will be collected under the World Health Organization in order to use health scares to implement the tracking, tracing and curtailment of the freedom of movement of the world population.
BANNED IN FLORIDA
Florida governor and presidential candidate Ron DeSantis has vehemently rejected COVID passports and has worked to outlaw them in the state. Tied close to digital IDs is the potential introduction of Central Bank Digital Currencies, which have also been banned in Florida.
Ghebreyesus, the WHO chief – who is not a medical doctor, but holds a PhD in community health – has previously been accused of war crimes and genocide in Ethiopia by economist and former National Security Council expert David Steinman. Ghebreyesus was a key high-ranking member of the Marxist-Leninist guerrilla movement Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front.
