We Host Obtuseness (WHO)

About ten years ago, there were serious discussions about dismantling the WHO due to its mismanagement  of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. An even more dramatic mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic must now finally seal the fate of this organization!

I still have serious doubts about whether the Covid-19 (C-19) pandemic was planned; it certainly wasn't orchestrated by the Vaccine Industry. Moreover, it’s also difficult to reconcile the broadly approved effort of the Vaccine Industry to develop a vaccine with the notion of a powerful lobby harboring nefarious intentions. Back then, no one anticipated, indeed, that mass vaccination during a pandemic could worsen its spread and health impact, given past successes in curbing infection chains through mass vaccination during pandemics or epidemics. Nobody ever officially reported, though, that in the case of these alleged success stories (such as Smallpox and Ebola), deaths of contacts of index cases ring-vaccinated with replicating vaccines during the incubation time of the disease substantially contributed to halting viral transmission. Consequently, the WHO erroneously believed that large-scale vaccination during a pandemic or epidemic was a highly effective strategy for ending it. ‘Regrettably’(?!), in the mass C-19 vaccination program, this never-investigated or mentioned ‘killing effect’ didn't materialize, as the vaccines used were non-replicating and the ring vaccination protocol didn't apply, considering that the transmission of this virus is airborne rather than via direct contact. Hence, I strongly believe that the egregious incompetence of the WHO is at the heart of the mismanagement of this pandemic. Their advocated infection-prevention strategies and extensive C-19 vaccination program have transformed this initially mild, naturally occurring pandemic into a dangerous immune escape pandemic. It's only right that such a screw-up organization should vanish from the face of this earth.

Geert Vanden Bossche received his DVM from the University of Ghent, Belgium, and his PhD degree in Virology from the University of Hohenheim, Germany. He held adjunct faculty appointments at universities in Belgium and Germany. After his career in Academia, Geert joined several vaccine companies (GSK Biologicals, Novartis Vaccines, Solvay Biologicals) to serve various roles in vaccine R&D as well as in late vaccine development.

Geert then moved on to join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Global Health Discovery team in Seattle (USA) as Senior Program Officer; he then worked with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) in Geneva as Senior Ebola Program Manager. At GAVI he tracked efforts to develop an Ebola vaccine. He also represented GAVI in fora with other partners, including WHO, to review progress on the fight against Ebola and to build plans for global pandemic preparedness.

Back in 2015, Geert scrutinized and questioned the safety of the Ebola vaccine that was used in ring vaccination trials conducted by WHO in Guinea. His critical scientific analysis and report on the data published by WHO in the Lancet in 2015 was sent to all international health and regulatory authorities involved in the Ebola vaccination program. After working for GAVI, Geert joined the German Center for Infection Research in Cologne as Head of the Vaccine Development Office. He is at present primarily serving as a Biotech / Vaccine consultant while also conducting his own research on Natural Killer cell-based vaccines.
