Britain risks losing power to control future lockdowns to WHO

Britain risks “signing away” its powers over pandemic policy to “unelected” World Health Organisation (WHO) officials, MPs have warned.

It is feared that a new “pandemic treaty”, which is currently being drawn up by the UN agency, could bounce the UK into locking down society faster during a future global health crisis.

Critics warn that member states could be pressured into following the agency’s instructions when responding to pandemics under the treaty, including by introducing vaccine passports, border closures and quarantine measures.
