UNITED NATIONS & WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION’S ROLE ON BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS AMID CORONAVIRUS


Introduction: It’s been more than a year and more now; since the Covid pandemic hit countries around the world. As per reports over 2.8 million and more people lost their lives, while more than 130 million positive cases have been reported so far. Economies came to a standstill, even as drug research labs and scientists across the world raced to create a vaccine.


The first sample of the virus had been sequenced as early as January 2020. Since then, thousands of samples have been sequenced worldwide — helping develop vaccines, improve therapies against the disease and understand how the virus spread from one country to another. Several vaccine candidates have now been rolled out, which experts believe will end the pandemic.


WHO and China probed corona virus origin. And neither of them liked the results

In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO)’s report does note that the Wuhan CDC laboratory shifted near the Huanan market - a wet meat market that is thought to have been the source of the virus — shortly before the pandemic broke out.

The report rules out accidental lab leak theory based on two major points — first, none of the lab workers reported falling sick; and second, no disruptions were reported.


WHO adds to confusion

Just after the report was released on 30 March, WHO chief Ghebreyesus said that the evidence was not enough to support the accidental lab leak theory, and that, as far as the WHO is concerned, all the hypotheses are still on the table and need to be followed upon.


His comments came after the US along with 13 other countries issued a statement accusing Beijing of failing to give proper access to the investigators. While Joe Biden’s administration recommitted to the WHO hours after becoming president, the US has not gone soft on China regarding the latter’s role in the spread of the coronavirus.


The WHO-China study, at best, is a succinct summary of the confusion that already exists around the origin of the virus. Each hypothesis is presented, then supported with evidence and then countered, leaving none any wiser.

It does appear, though, that specific effort has been taken to not only absolve China of any blame, but also open up new lines of investigations that lead researchers out of China.


Dr. Francis Boyle, who drafted the Biological Weapons Act has given a detailed statement admitting that the 2019 Wuhan Coronavirus is an offensive Biological Warfare Weapon and that the World Health Organization (WHO) already knows about it. Francis Boyle is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law. He drafted the U.S. domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.


Dr. Boyle discusses the corona virus outbreak in Wuhan, China and the Biosafety Level 4 laboratory (BSL-4) from which he believes the infectious disease escaped. He believes the virus is potentially lethal and an offensive biological warfare weapon or dual-use biowarfare weapons agent genetically modified with gain of function properties, which is why the Chinese government originally tried to cover it up and is now taking drastic measures to contain it. The Wuhan BSL-4 lab is also a specially designated World Health Organization (WHO) research lab and Dr. Boyle contends that the WHO knows full well what is occurring.


French Nobel prize winning scientist Luc Montagnier has sparked a fresh controversy by claiming that the SARS-CoV-2 virus came from a lab, and is the result of an attempt to manufacture a vaccine against the AIDS virus.


In an interview given to French CNews channel and during a podcast by Pourquoi Docteur, professor Montagnier who co-discovered HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) claimed the presence of elements of HIV in the genome of the corona virus and even elements of the "germ of malaria" are highly suspect, according to a report in Asia Times.


UNITED NATIONS- Who controls the disarmament of Chemical, Bio-chemical and Biological weapons? The United Nations which was founded in 1945 post the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. The friendly nations who all signed the Charter and the Convention Treaty for disarmament after formation of United Nations been more onto procedures for disarmament and curtailing the race of development of Chemical, Bio-chemical and Biological weapons.


History and Role in Disarmament Of Biological Weapons

Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization can take action on a wide range of issues, and provide a forum for its 193 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.


The work of the United Nations reaches every corner of the globe. Although best known for peacekeeping, peace building, conflict prevention and humanitarian assistance, there are many other ways the United Nations and its System (specialized agencies, funds and programmes) affect our lives and make the world a better place. The Organization works on a broad range of fundamental issues, from sustainable development, environment and refugees protection, disaster relief, counter terrorism, disarmament and non-proliferation, to promoting democracy, human rights, gender equality and the advancement of women, governance, economic and social development and international health, clearing landmines, expanding food production, and more, in order to achieve its goals and coordinate efforts for a safer world for this and future generations.


The United Nations has 4 main purposes

  • To keep peace throughout the world;

  • To develop friendly relations among nations;

  • To help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms;

  • To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations to achieve these goals

The United Nations Charter

12 June 1941 — The Declaration of St. James's Palace in London

In June 1941, representatives of Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, and the exiled governments of Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Yugoslavia and General de Gaulle of France signed the Declaration


1944–1945 — Dumbarton Oaks and Yalta

The principles of the organization-to-be were thus laid down. But it was a long step from defining the principles and purpose of such a body to setting up the structure. A blueprint had to be prepared and accepted by many nations.


30 October 1943 — Moscow and Teheran Conference

In Moscow, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the United States and China call for the establishment of an international organization to maintain peace and security - a goal reaffirmed two months later in Teheran.


1 January 1942 — the Declaration of the United Nations

Representatives of 26 countries fighting the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis, decide to support the Atlantic Charter by Signing the Declaration of the United Nations.


14 August 1941 — the Atlantic Charter

Two months after the London Declaration came the next step to a world organization, the result of a dramatic meeting between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill aboard a ship.


San Francisco Conference — 1945

Forty-five nations, including the four sponsors, were originally invited to the San Francisco Conference: nations which had declared war on Germany and Japan and had subscribed to the United Nations Declaration.
