Incredible: Now That the Op Has Achieved Its Goal, WHO Announces That... We Won't Need Any More Lockdowns

Just in time for Biden's anticipated presidency.

Now how about that.

And who's paying money to WHO's director? Oh right, the Communist Chinese Party that despises Trump.

Now they tell us! After pushing lockdowns around the world for months, the World Health Organization has reversed course. WHO's special envoy on COVID-19, David Nabarro, said in a recent interview, "We really do appeal to all world leaders: stop using lockdown as your primary control method." He went on to say what lockdown skeptics have been screaming for months: that the main effect of these policies is to devastate economies, and especially the poor. "Look what's happened to smallholder farmers all over the world," he said. "Look what's happening to poverty levels. It seems that we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year. We may well have at least a doubling of child malnutrition." You don't say.

Nabarro did give himself a bit of wiggle room, claiming that "the only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganize, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, wed rather not do it." Still, since were in, what, month seven of these measures, WHO advice to world leaders is now: "Stop with the lockdowns." Someone should tell Joe Biden.

Oh, never you worry about that. They already have November 4 penciled in as World Reopening Party Day.

The article goes on to note that there have been no studies establishing that lockdowns are effective at preventing viral spread-- remember when Studies were absolutely critical? Remember when we couldn't prescribe HCQ to anyone until we had all the Studies completed?

But with lockdowns-- we don't need no stinkin' studies.

The article also notes the WHO pushed for lockdowns in 2020, the year of Trump's reelection campaign.

And now -- whoops. Whoopsie!

The media will of course continue claiming We Love The Science (TM) as they continue pushing for witchdoctor lockdowns with absolutely no studies establishing their safety or effectiveness.

Until November 4, that is.
