WHO Director Tedros Calls on Countries to Prepare for "Disease X"

The World Health Organization (WHO) called on nations to sign its pandemic treaty to prepare for “Disease X” during a document at the World Economic Forum annual event in Davos, Switzerland.

WHO Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus called on he international community to reach a pandemic agreement by May 2024 to fight against the “common enemy.”

“Disease X” has been used as a placeholder to refer to a potential pathogen, which the WEF claims could be 20 times deadlier than COVID-19.

In November 2022, the WHO said Disease X “could cause a serious international epidemic.”

During meetings, WHO researchers began studying different pathogens that could be Disease X in a process that includes “both scientific and public health criteria, as well as criteria related to socioeconomic impact, access, and equity.”

During the WEF summit, Hhebreyesus said that coronavirus was the first Disease X, warning the world to prepare for the next one.

“There are things that are unknown that may happen, and anything happening is a matter of when, not if, so we need to have a placeholder for that, for the diseases we don’t know,” the health official said.

“We lost many people [during the coronavirus pandemic] because we couldn’t manage them,” Ghebreyesus said.

“They could have been saved, but there was no space. There was not enough oxygen. So how can you have a system that can expand when the need comes?”

He said collective action via the international treaty would help the world react appropriately to the outbreak.

“The pandemic agreement can bring all the experience, all the challenges that we have faced and all the solutions into one,” Ghebreyesus argued.

“That agreement can help us to prepare for the future in a better way.”

“This is a common global interest, and very narrow national interests should not come into the way.”

The WHO director added that experts have been working on collaborative methods ahead of the deadline for the treaty to be signed.

Some methods to prepare for “Disease X” include “an early-warning system, organizing supply chains and advancing research and development to test drugs.”

Ghebreyesus added:

“It’s better to anticipate something that may happen because it has happened in our history many times, and prepare for it.”

“We should not face things unprepared; we can prepare for some unknown things, as well,” he said.”

Last year, the Biden administration was negotiating the global pandemic treaty depsite pushback from Republicans over a ceding sovereignty to the WHO.

“The World Health Organization pandemic treaty is very vague, it affects our sovereignty, and it could be exploited to tell Americans what kind of health care they need in the event of a global pandemic,” Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN), said in May.
