As far back as 2005, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and its partners at the UN, the World Bank and similar international bodies together with 196 countries planned for the current pandemic.
In respect to that, this article briefly surveys how all this came to be and the coincidental international rolling out of the current pandemic and its containment measures.
IHR2005 is a BINDING international legal agreement sponsored by the UN and WHO which was initiated for the purpose of helping the international community prevent, control and respond to severe public health risks that present international threats.
More than 196 countries have signed IHR2005 including all the member states of the World Health Organisation such as the Pacific island states of Fiji and Kiribati and Caribbean states such as Grenada and Trinidad & Tobago. IHR2005 entered into force in 2007. IHR2005 signatories are bound to comply with the obligations set forth in it.

NOTABLE IHR2005 PROVISIONS FOR STATE PARTIES CURRENTLY PLAYING OUT
Per IHR2005’s Article 18: Recommendations with respect to persons, baggage, cargo, containers, conveyances, goods and postal parcels
1. Recommendations issued by WHO to States Parties with respect to persons may include the following advice: require medical examinations; review proof of vaccination or other prophylaxis; require vaccination or other prophylaxis; place suspect persons under public health observation; implement quarantine or other health measures for suspect persons; implement isolation and treatment where necessary of affected persons; implement tracing of contacts of suspect or affected persons; refuse entry of suspect and affected persons; refuse entry of unaffected persons to affected areas; and implement exit screening and/or restrictions on persons from affected areas.
Under IHR 2005 18 (2) in respect to goods and physical property:-
implement quarantine, seizure and destruction of infected or contaminated or suspect baggage, cargo, containers, conveyances, goods or postal parcels under controlled conditions if no available treatment or process will otherwise be successful; and refuse departure or entry.
The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (“GMB”) is a body that advises the World Health Organisation (WHO) on its heath emergencies policies. It was co-convened in May 2018 by the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization. Its principal advisor is John Hopkins University Center for Health Security.
The GMB’s 15-member Board consists of senior figures from the USA, China, Russia, UK, Netherlands, Norway and also includes those from the WHO, Red Cross, Bill Gates’ Foundation, UNICEF, Netherlands, Japan, Chile, India as well as political leaders, heads of agencies, and experts.
GMB is led jointly by Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, formerly Prime Minister of Norway and Director-General of the World Health Organization and Mr Elhadj As Sy, Secretary General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
WHAT ARE GMB’S GOALS?
The stated goals of GMB’s Board are to: 1. assess the world’s ability to protect itself from health emergencies; 2. identify critical gaps to preparedness across multiple perspectives; 3. advocate for preparedness activities with national and international leaders and decision-makers.
Just before the Covid19 pandemic emerged, GMB’s “A world at risk: annual report on global preparedness for health emergencies of September 2019” (Geneva: World Health Organization; 2019. Licence: CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 IGO) Annual Report was published. The report was commissioned to Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security by GMB.
GMB’S REPORT’S PAPER “PREPAREDNESS FOR A HIGH-IMPACT RESPIRATORY PATHOGEN EPIDEMIC” OF SEPTEMBER 2019
The Annual Report’s paper, “Preparedness for a High-Impact Respiratory Pathogen Pandemic” of September 2019 effectively sets the scene for the Covid19 event currently playing out worldwide and which started shortly after the paper was published.
The Paper’s contributors are:-
• Jarbas Barbosa da Silva Jr., Pan American Health Organization; • Rick Bright, US Department of Health and Human Services; • Elizabeth Cameron, Nuclear Threat Initiative; • Gail Carson, University of Oxford; • Jeremy Farrar, Wellcome Trust; • Keiji Fukuda, University of Hong Kong; • Bruce Gellin, Sabin Vaccine Institute; • Julie Lyn Hall, International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies; • William Hall, Wellcome Trust; • Keith Hamilton, World Organisation for Animal Health; • Anne Huvos, World Health Organization; • Chikwe Ihekweazu, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control; • Bruce Innis, PATH; • Daniel Jernigan, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; • Kerri-Ann Jones, Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Framework Advisory Group; to the World Health Organization; • Rebecca Katz, Georgetown University; • Lawrence Kerr, US Department of Health and Human Services; • Marie-Paule Kieny, INSERM; • Marion Koopmans, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center, The Netherlands; • Amanda McClelland, Resolve to Save Lives;• Hilary Marston, National Institutes of Health; • Claudia Nannei, World Health Organization; • Toomas Palu, World Bank Group; • Diane Post, National Institutes of Health; • Eduard Salahov, Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation; • Ethan Settembre, Seqirus; • Cecilia Mundaca Shah, Forum on Microbial Threats, National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, USA; • Beverly Taylor, Seqirus; • Jonathan Van-Tam, Department of Health and Social Care, England; • Netsanet Workie, World Bank Group; • Members of the World Health Organization Strategic & Technical Advisory Group for Infectious Hazards.
The Paper’s PROGRESS INDICATOR (S) BY SEPTEMBER 2020 – at page 29 – which is what all IHR2005 signatory countries are to have in place by September 2020 – is particularly telling in relation to the outbreak of Covid19.
Point 2 below is instructive in that regard:-
1. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, with the Director-General of WHO and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs strengthens coordination and identifies clear roles and responsibilities and timely triggers for a coordinated United Nations systemwide response for health emergencies in different countries and different health and humanitarian emergency contexts.
2. The United Nations (including WHO) conducts at least two system-wide training and simulation exercises, including one for covering the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen (coincidentally, in this video clip for a news report and in the presence of President Trump, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo explains that the USA is in live “exercise” mode in relation to Covid19 – perhaps a slip of the tongue?
3. WHO develops intermediate triggers to mobilize national, international and multilateral action early in outbreaks, to complement existing mechanisms for later and more advanced stages of an outbreak under the IHR (2005).
4. The Secretary General of the United Nations convenes a high-level dialogue with health, security and foreign affairs officials to determine how the world can address the threat of a lethal respiratory pathogen pandemic, as well as for managing preparedness for disease outbreaks in complex, insecure contexts.
CHINA’S DECLARED OBLIGATIONS UNDER IHR2005
As there have been inferences that the Covid19 outbreak was initiated by China solely, as it is a member of IHR2005 coupled with the tone of its declaration under IHR 2005 (at Pt. III (page 62 extracted below), this is not a credible proposition:-
III. (CHINA’S) DECLARATIONS AND STATEMENTS
1. The Government of the People’s Republic of China decides that the International Health Regulations (2005) (hereinafter referred to as “the IHR”) applies to the entire territory of the People’s Republic of China, including the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Macau Special Administrative Region and the Taiwan Province.
2. The Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China is designated as China’s National Focal Point, pursuant to Paragraph 1 of Article 4 of the IHR. The local health administrative authorities are the health authorities responsible for the implementation of the IHR in their respective jurisdictions. The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People’s Republic of China and its local offices are the competent authorities of the points of entry referred to in Article 22 of the IHR.
3. To meet the needs of applying the IHR, the Government of the People’s Republic of China is revising the Frontier Health and Quarantine Law of the People’s Republic of China . It has incorporated the development, enhancement and maintenance of the core capability-building for rapid and effective response to public health hazards and public health emergencies of international concern into its program of establishing a national health emergency response system during the 11 th Five-year Plan for National Economic and Social Development. It is formulating the technical standards for the surveillance, reporting, assessment, determination and notification of public health emergencies of international concern. It has established an inter-agency information-sharing and coordination mechanism for implementing the IHR. And it has conducted cooperation and exchanges with relevant states parties on the implementation of the IHR.
4. The Government of the People’s Republic of China endorses and will implement the resolution of the 59 th World Health Assembly calling upon its member states to comply immediately, on a voluntary basis, with provisions of the IHR considered relevant to the risk posed by the avian influenza and pandemic influenza.
Is Covid19 a simulated pandemic planned by world governments and coordinated by the UN, WHO and similar international agencies? The evidence for an affirmation is circumstantial but nonetheless highly persuasive due to the high coincidence of how Covid19 unfolded and is unfolding in particular, the short time span between GMB’s September 2019 report and the rolling out of the outbreak and the measures that IHR 2005 prescribed actually falling into place seamlessly worldwide thereafter as if by design.
Furthermore, the architects of IHR2005, GMB and their associated bodies appear to be the very people who are totally in control of the release and control of information worldwide in regard to how Covid19 infections and deaths are reported and the measures that are imposed on the worldwide population to contain the pandemic which measures were put in place more than 15 years ago.
Accordingly, the WHO and UN have a lot of explaining to give to millions who have lots their jobs, livelihoods, businesses and freedom from Covid19 if the pandemic turns out to be nothing more than a planned simulation of the most unkind type upon the world.
