SKY NEWS AUSTRALIA HEADLINES: World Health Organisation has ‘reversed its position on lockdowns’
Sky News host Paul Murray says the World Health Organisation has reversed its position on lockdowns, which follows their reversal on masks, and their reversal on how deadly COVID was going to be.
“The World Health Organisation is often used by people as the ultimate body to justify some of the worst lockdowns and behaviours of this whole thing,” he said.
“I want to introduce you to a person (Dr. David Nabarro, a Special Envoy on Covid-19 for the World Health Organization [WHO]) from the World Health Organisation who says, guess what, lockdowns are a bad idea.
“This is a reversal of the position of the World Health Organisation. Which of course followed their reversal on mask, their reversal on how deadly this thing was going to be – their endless reversals.”
Mr Murray showed footage of a spokesman for the World Health Organisation who said, “we in the World Health Organisation do not advocate lockdowns as a primary means of control of this virus”.
“The only time we believe the lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganise, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it,” the spokesperson said.
“Look what’s happening to poverty levels – it seems we may well have a doubling of world poverty by next year.
“This is a terrible, ghastly global catastrophe.
“We really do appeal to all world leaders, stop using lockdown as your primary control method, develop better systems for doing it.”
Mr Murray said, “but what did the forty members of the press, who of course have let him get away with the ducking, the weaving, the bullshitting, for weeks and weeks and weeks, months and months and months -what did they celebrate? Of course, the major milestone of 100 press conferences in a row – like that is an achievement.”

ABC NEWS AUSTRALIA HEADLINES: WHO doctor says lockdowns should not be main coronavirus defence
Melbourne’s second wave lockdown has badly hurt businesses, and recent comments by a leading doctor have raised questions about whether they were necessary.(ABC News: Simon Tucci)
Recent commentary from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) special envoy on COVID-19 has sparked questions about the legitimacy of lockdowns to stop the spread of coronavirus.
“We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus.”
This statement from Dr David Nabarro has also prompted questions about whether the WHO has backflipped on its advice, months after the pandemic was declared.
So, when should lockdowns be considered, what is the WHO’s advice on them and how does this affect Australia?
WHO doctor calls on world leaders to use other control methods
The latest discussion about strict lockdowns started after the WHO’s special envoy on COVID-19 said they should not be used as the primary method of control.
Dr Nabarro made the statements in an interview with The Spectator.
“The only time we believe a lockdown in justified is to buy you time to reorganise, regroup, rebalance your resources; protect your health workers who are exhausted,” Dr Nabarro said.
“But by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

Dr Nabarro told The Spectator the economic impact on small countries that rely on tourism and increased poverty levels are two major effects of shutting communities down.
“We really do appeal to all world leaders, stop using lockdown as your primary method of control,” he said.
“Lockdowns have just one consequence that you must never ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.”
While the statements by themselves seem to call for an end to lockdowns, the message is consistent with a piece written by Dr Nabarro days earlier.
Titled, REFLECTIONS ABOUT THE MIDDLE PATHOriginal SourceSEE URL: https://www.4sd.info/covid-19-narratives/reflections-about-the-middle-path/, he advocates for governments around the world to find a balance between restrictions and normal life.
“Too many restrictions damage people’s livelihoods and provoke resentment. ‘Virus run wild’ will lead to lots of deaths as well as debilitating long-COVID among younger people,” he wrote.
The message from the article is that health measures which involve strict personal hygiene, effective contact tracing and isolating when ill are the essential measures to be taken.
“Public health services are organised to offer locally-integrated support for interrupting transmission and suppressing clusters,” he wrote.
“This means test-trace-isolate-protect services everywhere, with clearly justified performance metrics.
“It is important there is enough testing capacity to pick up where the virus is, to detect spikes and manage surges.
“Lockdowns just freeze the virus … they do not lead to elimination.”
SO WHEN SHOULD LOCKDOWNS AND RESTRICTIONS BE LIFTED?
TRANSMISSION UNDER CONTROL: a term wide open for abuse, purely subjective and ambiguious at best
The WHO put out a six-step plan for governments to follow to ease restrictions.
To ease restrictions the WHO says governments should:
■ Ensure transmission is under control
■ Make sure health systems can care for every case — including tracing and isolating
■ Minimise risks in health facilities, including nursing homes
■ Have preventative measures in workplaces, schools and other essential places
■ Manage the risk of the virus being imported in from another place
■ Fully educate the community on the new normal, and how they can protect themselves
