WHO Official Urges World Leaders to Stop Using Lockdowns as Virus Control Method

Gov. Newsom continues to declare that the 9-month State of Emergency centralizes the State’s powers in his hands

When Google, youtube, Reddit, Facebook or Twitter decide to bury information, you know you are on to something.

The World Health Organization’s special envoy on COVID-19 urged world leaders this week to stop “using lockdowns as your primary control method.”

Expect this to disappear from Twitter.

Earlier this week California Globe reported, Thousands of Epidemiologists, Physicians Sign Letter Citing Severe Public Health Damage with COVID-19 Lockdowns, calling for the end of coronavirus lockdowns, citing the “irreparable damage” they’ve caused.

Almost immediately, Reddit buried discussion of the Great Barrington Declaration. Now Google has “memory holed” the declaration, Zero Hedge reported.

From the “make Orwell fiction again” files:


But it will be more difficult to bury the WHO’s plea to world leaders.

“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr. David Nabarro said to The Spectator’s Andrew Neil. “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, we’d rather not do it,” the Washington Times reported.

Californians, who have been in lockdown mode since early March, will likely never hear about this important science-based plea, because since March, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s arbitrary, politically-motivated lockdown orders have only proven increasingly unscientific.

Since March, Californians have whiplash from Gov. Newsom’s many changing arbitrary sets of guidelines for re-opening counties in California:

  • Gov. Newsom months ago told Californians there would be four phases to re-opening the state. In April, Gov. Newsom outlined a 4-stage plan to bring California “back to normal.” While he  confirmed the state was on Stage 1 at the time, it was about staying at home, flattening the coronavirus curve, building healthcare capacity, and preparing businesses and schools for reopening through new guidelines.
  • Newsom said stage 2 would come online within a few weeks, allowing retail, manufacturing, offices, child care, possible limited school re-openings, and public spaces being opened to varying degrees.
  • However, Californians were also warned in April the lockdown “could last until June.” Which it did.
  • In June, Gov. Newsom and California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly told Californians that phase 3 would begin, but counties would only be allowed to move up to the advanced Phase 3 if coronavirus cases remain low, adequate testing was done, and that counties could show that were are prepared for a greater number of re-openings, as well as being prepared for upticks in the number of cases in case of another outbreak. The Globe reported that most of California’s counties had met those standards and could have reopened on June 12th.
  • But that didn’t happen either. Even back in June, the Globe posited: “It is apparent to anyone paying attention that Gov. Newsom is trying to keep the state under his thumb in lockdown mode as long as possible – Tuesday, November 3, 2020, comes to mind.”
  • The August new four-tier system included four color-coded tiers which moved already re-opened counties back into closure.

It is now mid-October – the 9th month into this flu “pandemic,” while Gavin Newsom continues to declare that the nine-month-and-counting State of Emergency centralizes the State’s powers in the hands of the Governor.

As soon as more counties were preparing to move out of the most restrictive tier, Gov. Newsom pivoted again and added an “equity requirement.” In order for counties to move to a less restrictive tier, they must “Ensure that the test positivity rates in its most disadvantaged neighborhoods, as defined as being in the lowest quartile of the Healthy Places Index census tracts, do not significantly lag behind its overall county test positivity rate,” according to the California Department of Public Health “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

Why? Because, the CDPH says, “It has been clearly documented that certain communities – low-income, Black, Latino, Pacific Islander, and essential workers – have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 in terms of higher rates of infection, hospitalizations, and deaths.”

This truly is from the “make Orwell fiction again” files.

During a news conference on Tuesday, CHHS Secretary Mark Ghaly announced that a statewide theme park reopening plan would be coming “as soon as possible,” and that they are working with theme park representatives to come up with new guidelines, the Globe reported.

But the next day, Gov. Newsom revoked Ghaly’s hopeful message, saying “We feel there’s no hurry to put out guidelines, and we continue to work with the industry.”

“The giant lay-off shook California officials, who soon worked with theme park companies for reopening guidelines,” the Globe reported. “I understand the dialectic, the friction that many business leaders have that they want to move forward. But we’re going to be led by a health-first framework, and we’re going to be stubborn about it,” Newsom said. “And that’s our commitment, that’s our resolve.”

The very next day, Bob Iger, chairman of the Walt Disney Company, stepped down from Gov. Newsom’s COVID-19 task force to help navigate the economic issues surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, Los Angeles CBS reported.

The only way to “navigate the economic issues surrounding the coronavirus pandemic” is to fully open the entire state.

California is becoming a wasteland of closed medium to small businesses, deemed “non-essential” by Gov. Newsom, while big-box stores and big chain stores are opened for business.

Millions of Californians have not received unemployment checks for the nine months of lockdown, living off credit cards and family, while state and local government employees continue to receive full paychecks for “working” remotely. Public school teachers haven’t taught in a classroom since the schools were closed, and their union is trying to drag that out as long as possible, while they continue to receive full paychecks and benefits.

“As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists, we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection,” read the Great Barrington Declaration petition. “Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health.”

In the United States, lockdowns have been tied to increased thoughts of suicide from children, a surge in drug overdoses, an uptick in domestic violence, and a study conducted in May concluded that stress and anxiety from lockdowns could destroy seven times the years of life that lockdowns potentially save, the Examiner reported.

In California, rather than re-opening and allowing business owners and employees to get back to work, and children back to school, the Legislature, which has allowed Gov. Newsom to rule the state by Executive Order, just passed idiotic laws aimed at converting hotels into apartments for homeless, banning flavored tobacco and fur products, ordering firearms to be micro-stamped, ordering prisons to house transgender inmates based on their gender identity, and regulated food delivery apps.

The governor also has issued an executive order banning gas-powered cars and Tweeted, “Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites.”

Let California be a warning to the rest of the country: We really have morphed into, “Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State.” (Benito Mussolini)

  1. Only total fools and tools actually believe any of these shutdowns are for health. This is all about a revolution to overthrow our government and replace it with a totalitarian, leftist government that endlessly punishes people more merely wanting to live their lives.

    1. Exactly!

      Unfortunately, we see quite a few leftist zombies walking the streets of California these days with their government feed bags draped around their face and jaws. They are eating up and totally believing the lies that are coming from our “leadership”. One day their children will wake up to find that they are complete slaves to an oppressive totalitarian regime. You get what you vote for.

  2. Given Gov Gruesome’s record it was pretty obvious what he and his minions were up to on Day 1 of this charade. Even though we had to tread carefully at first because we didn’t know exactly what they would do with COVID as the excuse. Also people were understandably frightened, mostly because our “leadership” had purposely frightened them. But as soon as I saw people lining up at the supermarket, outside, in the rain, I knew the totalitarians had us between a rock and hard place. Liars.
    They will have to account for what they have done, one day, one way or another.

    1. I have several signatures to send in! This guy needs to go for so many reasons not to mention he is a dictator!

  3. I completely agree that we should end lock downs. I also agree with the rest of the WHO recommendations.

    The WHO recommends replacing lockdowns with robust health measures noting that requires a highly organized government health response and widespread community buy-in. Instead of lock downs:

    A well prepared local health response.
    Readily available testing
    Contact tracing
    Isolation/quarantine when sick (including support to stay home from work)
    Protections for the vulnerable
    Mask wearing
    Social distancing
    Good hygiene practices (like hand washing)

    How confident are you that we will meet even those basic standards? (Mask wearing?)

  4. @LJ,
    In other words, you recommend replacing one type of totalitarianism with another. You are obviously a health dept stooge or a public school teacher. LJ has slithered out of the cracks to share her very shitty solutions. No one needs the health departments tracing and tacking us LJ. Do this country a favor.. .move to a place where they seal you inside a container until they decide it is safe for you to come out.

  5. Thank you, I think you demonstrate the challenges with ‘community buy-in’ extremely well.
    Just be aware that very few calls for ending lock downs are only about ending lock downs, and that you know the whole package when you cheer them on.

  6. Thank you!! for this wealth of-otherwise hidden info -and this oasis of a website for We the California people who are not alone, ,it may seem like it in certain areas inundated with (scared CNN watching) sheeple, but we are UNITED with a huge population of peoples in the world to total a mass of awake people who vastly outnumber the criminals who are behind this greatest hoax we have ever experienced.

    This shows the WHO le cabal is running scared-finally. The slimy Tedros character did not present this news? Whatever happened to his threat that “if we do not comply, there will be a lot of body bags”? Ha!
    Next to be running scared from a life in prison is Newsom.

    There are lawsuits against Governors and Gavin is next (?) as this (see link of laws below) spelling out his crimes against humanity AND any so called “health” officers in any county in CA for their participation as well. They are not innocent. Anyone involved will be held accountable or atleast brought in for deep questioning about the role they played in hurting the people of CA.


    the above liink is mentioned in this video “WILL AMERICA STAND OR BE DESTROYED BY A HOAX?” at the 45 minute mark.

    Also the best video-have to stay alert to follow…..Wormsom Newom is mentioned at the 20 minute mark

    “Dr David E Martin Explains 2020 Pandemic, Dr Fauci involvement with CDC and Bill Gates foundation”

  7. This guy needs to go! The state needs to step up and remove him from office! He is destroying our state and the citizens within. Small business will be nothing but a memory. He changes the rules mid way through. I’m actually very concerned about what will happen in California after the elections. I for one will just move back to the east coast! I’m done with California and Newsom!! He wants to sink this state and does not care about you or me!

  8. When I go to Wal-Mart and only me and my daughter are not wearing a mask…you get the picture. I was told today at Panda in Rocklin to go stand on the cirb and then they will serve me because I can’t for medical reasons wear a mask. Even after I told them why I was told again to go stand on the crib for service. I left and I will not go to a panda again because of their discrimination policy.

  9. King Gavin is just being a loyal,minion to the Democrat party platform and taking the lead with some of the most draconian measures to prove his anti-Teump bona fides…

    He is a CANCER on California and strictly in it for himself and his political aspirations, coupled with greed from his BYD mask & public transportation contracts & deals…

    Brown was terrible as Governor, this guy is WORSE…

    We need McClintock or Moorlach as Governor of California….

  10. “make Orwell fiction again” In reality corporate propagandists like you are more like Brave New World telling people to stay complacent consumers.

    “idiotic laws aimed at converting hotels into apartments for homeless” Capitalists think having a heart is stupid because they’re all brain, no soul, no humanity. Ironic that you quoted Mussolini because you’re a perfect little drone in the machine.

  11. You know about this POS Newsome. It’s fine for his Winery too be open during this Fake ass pandemic while all the other small Businesses have to remain closed. This dictator isn’t doing what is right for California, He is in hand and foot with the Chinese trying to take not only California down, but the entire country with it. Why isn’t the Federal Government stepping in and putting a stop to this Bullshit?

    1. If Joe Biden is elected nothing will happen. Look what the Democrats with their one party rule have done to this once Golden State. People are fleeing to other states with Republican Governors.

  12. All of the areas who shut down had an uptick when the opened up. Those who never shut down did not have that problem. Germany figured out that children do not get the virus early on and never closed their schools. Parents should sue the teachers union and Newsome. In our state of 40 million people only one child has died of COVID and he had diabetes. This is child abuse and gross negligence.

  13. So it is Now December 7th 2020 and we are once again completely shut down again. Gov. Newsbomb and his “health crew” now state the the numbers for Covid-19 are thru the roof and we must all be shut down again “for our own good”. I know for a fact that all the numbers are majorly padded the case rate, the ICU beds being used, the hospitals filling up the Death rate per County is all WRONG and HIGHLY INFLATED. I PERSONALLY KNOW OF 4 people that have unfortunately passed away and NONE OF THEM HAD COVID-19. Yet on ALL of their Death Certificates it clearly states cause of Death is/was the Coronavirus COVID-19 AND IT JUST NOT TRUE. ALSO if you are not aware of it any Dr.’s office, Clinic, or Hospital that states COVID-19 THAT THAT FACILITY GETS EXTRA MONEY FROM THE STATE? It’s for your own good you don’t know any better Newsbomb states. I for 1 am sick and tired of being jerked around by Newsbomb and his cronies. Not that they are saying that Biden/Harris won and I believe CHEATED THINGS ARE GOING TO GO FROM BAD TO WORSE IN ABOUT 120 DAYS OR SO FROM NOW. As Biden will be declared incompetent/Dead and I don’t put it passed EITHER WOMAN ( Harris/Palosi) to do either one to Biden. I mean look AT what BOTH of these Women did to California already. What do YOU really think the WILL DO TO THE USA. THINK ABOUT THAT I MEAN REALLY LET IT RESINATE WITHIN YOU. ……SACRY RIGHT???Now today we have Biden’s/Harris choice of county district attorney closing prisons letting go of the no cash bail and all kinds of things for Los Angelas County. Seriously fact check all that I have stated please. Gavin Newsbomb your an idiot and needs to be in JAIL FOR ALL THAT YOU AND YOUR AUNT PELOSI AND HER NEW BEST FRIEND HARRIS HAVE DONE TO THIS STATE THAT YOU ALL HAVE TURNED INTO A JOKE AND A LAUGHING STOCK
